It was so nice to be back at Nick's! Overall it was a wonderful experience and encourage you to try it.
My favorite restaurant. So glad it's back open!!!
Nick's is our favorite Pasadena spot for a fabulous evening out with outstanding cocktails and fabulous wines. You can always bet on the service being attentive and friendly as well. So glad to have Nick's back!!!
We love Nick's in Pasadena. The food is really good, the bistro plate is really tasty. My husband likes the fried chicken. The shrimp taquitos are really good. The butter cake is to die for. We appreciate the really good service. The cocktails are delicious, the bartenders know their stuff. Nicks is one of our favorite places. You won't be disappointed.
The food and service at Nick's was top notch as usual. The deviled eggs and asparagus fries started things off great, then we all enjoyed our entrees. The sea bass, meatloaf, bistro plate, and salmon were all wonderful. We took our friends for their first time and they now plan on becoming regulars!
So happy to be one of the first to Nick’s opening night! Perfect! Thank you to the entire team at Nick’s for a wonderful meal! We missed you!
BRAVO!!! Opening night was a success! Everything was just as I remembered; mmmmmmmmGOOD. The extra covid19 precautions really made us feel comfortable. Everything from the plexiglass between each booth, the mask/shield combo worn by the wait staff and the small bag they provide to store your mask while you dine. Did I mention how great the food was? Thank You Nicks!!!!
great service no problems what so ever, I enjoyed my bday dinner!
Such a great time. Very on point staff, great food that’s totally worth every dollar. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for good service, quality and fun.
Great service! Great food! Love it here every time!!
It was super good, would definitely go back again. The butter cake was the best part
Always the best food and service
The food was amazing, but not surprised. The service was great especially with all the covid protocols in place, it was nice to feel normal again.
Nick’s is a favorite and so happy they reopened. They are doing a great job following all the safety protocols related to the virus. Thanks for making us feel comfortable on our first dine out in many months.
Fabulous service as always. SUPER delicious food and friendly service. Glad to see they are open again. Highly recommend this place!!!!!
Nick's is amazing in every way. It's one of the best values in Pasadena. From time to time, my only small complaint is that sometimes tables with larger numbers of people talk too loud and it's disruptive to others.
Glad there back open. Service and food was outstanding. Try their devil eggs, very different but good. Prime rib sandwich one of the best have ever had. Drinks were well served. Top it off with the lemon cake ( to much to finish so taking it home). Back soon. 10+
During this pandemic, I felt very safe. Nick's followed social distancing precautions, face coverings were required for everyone while we were moving through the restaurant, we used our phones to view the menu so that we were not sharing the menu communally.
With these extra steps taken, neither the excellent service nor quality of the food was affected. The staff was very personable and the food was delicious. It was so nice to have a few hours where I felt almost normal. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience during these highly stressful times.
Nick's is wonderful!!!
My family and I give the restaurant,servers, everything five stars we will be back
Nicks is always great service and wonderful food.
Knicks in Pasadena is one of our favorite restaurants. The service and the food are always consistently good.
We so enjoyed returning to our favorite restaurant Nick’s Pasadena. They made us feel special, the food was as delicious as ever and the cocktails perfectly poured. Thank you for giving us a wonderful evening!
Service and food are always great! One of our family's favorite restaurants (as well as the Manhattan Beach location).
This was my first dinner out since quarantine started and it was an excellent experience. Nick's does a great job of social distancing patrons. Never did I feel my health was at risk. The food was delicious, as usual. I will continue to eat here whenever possible.
Great food as always and great customer service. The bartender was great!
For our first sit down in restaurant dinner since covid-19 it was excellent. Nick's did an excellent job in measures they have taken in order during this time. We felt comfortable and safe. Service was excellent and was asked several times if there was anything we needed. Hoping that they will resume their regular hours so that we can go back for brunch, if not bunch they can count on us coming back for dinner.
Food was great, service was friendly.
We love nicks it’s the best
Oh how I missed this place. We went back just for the desserts, the butter cake and ice cream sundae. It was the best! Can’t wait to go back again!
Food was delicious & staff very friendly
Server -Tiffany was awesome!!!!
This was the first night that Nick's was open for dine-in. It was obvious that they had made great preparations for separating tables, masking servers, and attentive service. As usual, the food was excellent and the service particularly friendly and efficient.
An awesome restaurant with the best service. We'll go back in the future.
