Great food and service
We had the eggs, meat loaf, fried chick and Spicy Thai salad. My wife asked fo =r a change to the Spicy Thai and they did that. The Lemon Cake is crazy big but wonderful. All excellent.
I love the atmosphere, the people, the food. Every time I go to Nick’s I feel like royalty. Everyone I bring to Nick’s is obsessed. Thank you all for a great experience every single time. My partner Ashleigh and I appreciate you.
Sole was thin and dry. Not as expected. Certainly not worth price. Service is always good. Atmosphere is fun. Parking is convenient.
Excellent food and service. Friendly bar tender
Love this restaurant and frequently meet friends here for lunch. As always, on our last visit, the food was great, server was very attentive and friendly and the ambiance was wonderful.
Food good. Expensive for lunch, and so loud, that my friend and I had to shout at one another.
Always a good meal with good service!! Bistro plate is my fave!
The food is delicious and yummy desserts
Amazing experience. From the seating, to the food, to the greeting.
Food and service was great. Watch out for the cost of your drinks different from on line prices. Some wine listed on line at $17 was charged $21. Didn't have cell phone to double check.
We were seated in the quiet part of the restaurant as requested. However, the elevator to the upstairs rest rooms was not working. They did not have a sign to that effect posted and this was a hardship for one of us.
Food cooked as requested but their signature salad was not liked by everyone. They should allow a choice of side salad.
Nicks is always great but this waitress was amazing. We had Nicole and she is a pro. Food perfect as always. Always a treat.
Love Nicks! Very comfortable and great food. Love that you don't have a corkage fee for a bottle of wine.
Reservation was not honored, observed the hostess seating customers coming through the door before us. Ended up sitting right next to the front door. It was extremely hot and after conferring with the hostess who agreed it was way too warm, nothing was done. The other host was pacing right behind me which was very odd and distracting. The loaded mashed potatoes had areas that were cold. Only saving point was that the warm bunt cake was delish as was the house champagne.
I simply love this restaurant. The menu is varied, the food fresh, the service very attentive and it is all around wonderful. A real neighborhood gem.
This place never fails me. Simply the BEST!
Great creative space for entertaining clients
We had been touring Huntington Gardens and were tired and hungry. We didn’t want to go back to our rental to get changed and were looking for a casual, early evening dining experience. Nick’s was a perfect fit! It exceeded our expectations. We will definitely return on our next visit to Pasadena.
The food was mediocre. The veggie burger was lost inside the huge doughy bun and there was about 4 inches of lettuce on top of the burger. The ricotta and avocado flat bread again was mounded with arugula but pretty tasteless. There was just a thin film of ricotta and avocado. It was mainly arugula on bread. Not much flavor.
Waiter was good. Hostess was good. Ambiance was very good except the bulbs were out in our hanging lantern so we were basically in the dark literally. But the restaurant did have a nice feel.
Food was absolutely delicious - the petit bistro salad was fresh and lightly dressed and the salmon was grilled to perfection. My cocktail was terrific and the waiter was attentive. Great lunch! We’ll be back
Great food and attention to service. A regular on our "go-to" list.
First time coming to this restaurant and couldn’t be happier!!!! Everything was top notch and will be back. Highly recommend
The dining experience at Nick's was excellent! Food, drinks and service were top notch!
Great service, delicious food and just the regular menu for NYE which we prefer. Loved it.
Nice ambiance, food, location, and better than average service.
Well worth a visit! One of the nicest dining experiences we have had in a long time. These folks know how, and deliver a lovely occasion.
The ambience is lovely (a bit loud but not horrible) and the food was delicious. I usually don't finish my meals but I ate every single bit of the meatloaf. And the friend chicken that my husband got was so good!
Excellent food and service. Bistro Plate is a great deal for a filet and everything on the menu is delicious. Nick's is a wonderful place for a nice casual meal, a date or a celebration. Since Nick's arrived to Pasadena, it's my "go to" restaurant! I've hosted many group luncheons and celebrated several happy occasions with friends and family. I highly recommend "Nick's on Lake"!
Wow, one of the best meals both of us have ever had. Well done, Nick’s!
Great meal and a very attentive staff
Amazing! Best kale salad I have ever had. Six layer lemon cake? Still dreaming about it!! A must-do when in Pasadena
Best service you can ever imagine! The butter cake is so worth the extra calories.
Second time at that location . Nothing but great service from the hostess to the busboy and the server and management .
Dinner with both sets of parents, sat quickly, staff was friendly. Noise level was a tad much for the party, but overall very enjoyable.
Food was good, sadly out of meatloaf at 7pm, and no brewed coffee ready.
The above won’t keep us away, we enjoy the food, drinks, and the ambiance.
Group favorites: friend chicken, deviled eggs, and Cippino. (Spell Check)
My girlfriends and I got together to celebrate a birthday. Nick’s has Great food, service and is at a great location.
Food quality was not quite the same this time. And
Went for a late lunch. Food and service both excellent. Everyone had something different; all enjoyed the food.
They have simply got the stop playing awful loud music at this restaurant. Some techno beat track with a loud thumping base is patently inappropriate at this otherwise classy establishment. I won’t be back again.
Always quality food and great service. We love the ribs and the famous butter cake.
