Perfect Eggs Benedict should be a bare minimum for a high priced brunch restaurant. Ours came with yolk the consistency of hard boiled eggs

I've had great lunches at Nicks several times. The brunch was blah though. There was nothing special about the quite limited food or drinks menu for brunch, and the hollandaise was heavy and creamy without the classic lemony flavor I prefer. Typical of Nicks there's a heavy reliance on bacon and ham to bring taste, which is great if you like them. I didn't try the potatoes. The room itself was packed. We were seated by a window with NO way to block the incoming sun which was ultimately quite uncomfortable. The waiter checked on us so often it actually got annoying in the midst of an intense conversation. (It's not like we couldn't signal easily if we needed help.)

Pretentious place without the food quality to back it up. Wish I went to Kitchen I instead.

Nicks was the first restaurant that popped up when doing a search for brunch. Quite honestly I wish we’d gone elsewhere. It started the moment we walked in and someone (presumably the manager/owner?) asked if he could take our just purchased coffees and put them elsewhere “it looks bad for business to have another company’s product in here”. Really dude?! I’m sure neither of Nick’s restaurants are putting Starbucks out of business, nor does your clientele solely dine/drink at Nick’s...but this could have been handled a thousand different ways (sign on the door? could we pour that into one of our mugs? something). Food was mediocre. The “seasonal fruit” platter consisted of not quite ripe selections. The main meal was typical of diner fare, nothing special, although for $12 it was not the priciest brunch, so mediocre was ok. All in all, it was a decent diner meal at a restaurant trying desperately to be upscale with a rude and inappropriately pretentious owner/manager. Better off going down Westminster to the less stuffy but likely comparable other restaurants.

This restaurant is in the lobby of the building I work in. I eat here daily. It can be crowded at lunch and particularly crowded at brunch on weekends. The quality of the food and the presentation is exceptional. Ingredients are locally sourced and

We really had a lovely time. It was pretty quiet when we first arrived. And was moderately full by the end of the meal. The servers were attentive without being pushy. And they were absolutely delightful. We had the warm olives and house baked bread, and then a pasta dish, and the bread dumplings as entrees, and the cheese plate to wrap everything up. The olives and bread were fabulous. Though be careful if you are impatient as I am, the olives are HOT initially and the pit even hotter. It didn't stop me from devouring them. But hungry folks proceed with caution. The entrees were wonderful. Absolutely no complaints. And the cheese board was quite nice, though a bit sparse on the cheese selection. Only two cheeses. They were very nice. Just would have enjoyed a third. Will absolutely be back though.

Great night out with friends for dinner. Tasty and interesting menu options with small plates available in a great downtown setting. Other friends have raved about their brunch as well so can't wait to go back to sample that menu!

Love love love this new space! The openness is fantastic and food is superb! I think I prefer this space over Broadway. Broadway is louder and you feel like you are on top of other patrons. Will definitely visit again.

The experience was very good. The food and service was very good. Please ignore the check off of just one block that was an error, should be 4 blocks.

We were delighted and very surprised to be seated at a table directly in front of the open kitchen a la a chef's table! How fabulous to be able to see the culinary artists at work creating delicious delights!
Bravo to Derek Wagner and his staff for maintaining integrity and sustainability in the local food seen.

My husband and I dined there on a Friday for pre=theater dinner
The staff assured us we would be finished in time and we were. The food was excellent. I has the grilled chicken and it was honestly the best I have ever had. Definitely will return.

We had an excellent meal and the wait staff were just terrific. We had a few questions about the menu and Megan was very helpful. In fact the entire front-end team took care of every table so the service was wonderful.
The food was also great. Everything was very fresh and there were interesting ingredient combinations. I also felt that the price was incredibly fair for the quality of the overall experience.

Great food but slow on getting to the table (50+ minutes for 2 brunch entrees). Once food arrived, no one came to check on us to see if food was okay, if we needed anything or offered refills on coffee.

The tomato soup was amazing. My spouse had the risotto and I had the rigatoni. The rigatoni's sauce did not have as much pesto as I expected and was a little oily, but the breadcrumbs gave a nice crunch. I preferred the risotto -- beautifully done, creamy with earthiness from the kale and mushrooms.

The menu was limited. Not many selections. The actual menu looked like it was self printed. My tuna was very good. Server was on life support; no energy or life at all. Place was extremely noisy-I could not hear my guests from across the table. Had to ask hostess to turn music down. She came over later and asked me if it was quieter. I told her I did not notice any change in volume. Nicks on Broadway never like this.

Food was excellent as usual. Server was a little strange in his greeting at the table and throughout the night. He was not rude just a little off. We will be returning for sure. Thanks again
