Nico and Nicos are awesome!!!!
The quenelle is a top 5 all time dish for me!!
Awesome place. Service was great, as was the food. Nico came out to say hi and chatted with us for a while. Felt like home. Highly recommended.
loved nico-fantastic experiences
My daughters & I happen to see the grand opening on "Southern Charm" & decided to come to SC & ck it out! FOOD was Excellent & very Tasty! YES, we'd come again & have already recommended it to friends that will be visiting the Charleston area soon! THANKS for such a great meal & desserts!
I give you 5 STARS & Everything!
How is it okay to serve oysters that are still attached to the shell. Nico said that’s the French way but I have eaten many oysters in France that were not attached. Our waitress must have been new. She couldn’t tell us about anything on the menu or what happy hour was about . Other tables with other servers were given helpful and informed info. We had the Plateau and Happy Hour oysters with no flavor and condiments that amounted to little more than mayo and ketchup. Disappointed. Perhaps it was just a bad night but I won’t be going back.
More menu choices, besides oysters, would be welcome.
The NY strip was tough, shrimp cocktail had a fishy taste. The shrimp did not seem fresh. Food was over embellished and disguised with all sorts of spices and heavy creams.
As always, the whole experience was fantastic! Probably the best restaurant off the peninsula!!! Worth the trip over the Cooper - thank you!!
The duck confit was outstanding and my husband loved the oyster app.
If you are going to offer a special, do not run out of it at 7pm.
New to the area and was recommended to try NICO. Did not disappoint! Our appetizers, drinks and meals were outstandingly delicious!! Friendly waiter, hostess and manager! We will be back as my mouth is salivating!
Excellent service. Wonderful selection of oysters. NICO is great for special occasions like. We like going to NICO on birthdays.
Nico is a flavorful, French, fabulous find!
The oyster menu choices are great and the presentation as well. The duck was the best ever for my son from NY. The baked alaska served the three of us. Yum!
Our server was knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations. Nico personally checked in with us. Thank you for a remarkable dinner!
Loved it. Great food. Great service. Bartender very friendly and knew the beers.
Amazing! Can’t wait to go back!
Really good food!
Food was great !!! Old Fashion $$17.00 , absolutely ridiculous!!!!! Need female waiters... dudes in kitchen are great , but need females on the floor... owner was cool... will go back.....
Excellent French menu Large and varied oysters Top wait staff and Hands on owner Nico who is always available
Service excellent. Well done. Very impressed with knowledge and silent service.
Wonderful!! Gave it a “10”
We love NICO! Great, fresh & yummy food every single time!
Great twist on seafood! Everything we had was fantastic. Not your "norm" but every twist they did to their food and presentation was so good.
Had a great experience. Staff knowledgeable and the food was terrific.
Had a great time. Food and service were wonderful. Hopefully the approaching storm will not effect them and will be open next week.
Never disappoints. Service was great as always.
While the oysters were quite tasty, the other items we ordered were much less memorable. It was very expensive and nothing that special. As for the ambiance, the decor was rather sparse inside. I would recommend sitting outside because at least the patio is nice. The restaurant was nearly empty, which we found concerning given that the places around it were packed.
This was by far the best dinner I've had in the Charleston area! The food was out of this world and the service by Adam was top notch! Cannot wait for another visit! This will definitely become our 'repeat" place for a couples dinner!
The best prepared, presented, and freshest seafood we’ve ever found in Charleston! Nick was our server and he was wonderful. He helped us navigate the menu with ease, and made us feel like regular guests on our very first visit. We have already told our Charleston friends to GO! NICO was easily our favorite meal in a city of exceptional food options. We love fresh seafood, and we were not disappointed. And Veuve Clicquot for happy hour was pretty amazing to find. Can’t wait to return!
One of the very best meals I have ever had! I shall return!
Great oysters, raw and baked. I had never had barrel fish, but it was delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient. Nothing but good about Nico.
Wonderful food, service, and ambience. A really fun place with incredible food.
Outstanding food and outstanding service! Highly recommend to those who love oysters, or any seafood really.
Great food stone crabs were amazing
I chose a variety of oysters on the half shell - deliciously fresh, cold, beautiful presentation, with all of the correct utensils and perfect accompaniments. I order pompano whenever I get the opportunity and it was baked perfectly, still moist and flakey. Nico visited our table and was charming and warm and enthusiastic about his success and the welcome he has experienced in Mt. Pleasant. I'll definitely be going back.
We like the atmosphere a lot. Cassual and young spirit.
Food was not so great though. Gnocci was nothing but gnocci.
Then the rest was ok.
Food was amazing. I had the NICO and it did not disappoint. Along with a dozen oysters and the table side baked Alaska.
Fun, lively ambience with excellent seafood. My wife and I split multiple items on the menu and loved every single one of them. We enjoyed the happy hour before moving onto dinner. Excellent service with fresh, delicious seafood. We are looking forward to our next dining experience at Nico!
Small note: Outdoor seating was a little loud as the noise from a live band leaked across the street onto Nico's outdoor patio. It wasn't a problem but something to be aware.
Food was good, but our waiter this time was Nick. He is one of the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable wait staff persons I have ever met. He was quite young, but had an unbelievable passion for the food at this restaurant. Wow!
Alex our sever was great! She was knowledgeable about the menu and also offered great suggestions which were spot on! Love king forward to our next visit!
