About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Nico presents a menu format similar to the French and European style of dining "carte blanche" (without a menu or blank menu). This menu style invites guests to put themselves in the hands of the kitchen and enjoy a dining experience.

We offer a $70 5-course tasting menu that changes nightly. Pairings to complement the nightly changing menu are priced at $55 for the 5-course menu. "Bites" and à la carte selections are offered at our small 5-6 seat bar.

In addition to the pairings, Nico offers a full wine list, nightly wines by the glass (half or full), low proof cocktails, a handful of beers, and non-alcoholic sodas. Corkage is $40.

**Please let us know of any dietary restrictions when you reserve so that we may properly prepare for your party.

Completely different experience from our first time there-service was bad and good mediocre. For an expensive restaurant that demands a credit card for reservation, sorely disappointed. Would be glad to speak to their manager about our lackluster $500 plus dinner.

This is our favorite restaurant in the city right now. The chef is very creative and takes local ingredients and combines them in unexpected ways to make something delicious. The tables are set a nice amount of space apart so one can have a very intimate and private dinner.

Superbly prepared tasting menu ($70) with great fresh ingredients and perfect wine pairings. The oysters with champagne mignonette were a must have to start.

I can definitely see why this restaurant earned a Michelin star. I thought the food was divine and that this kitchen was truly creative, inventive, imaginative, and concientious. The service and the presentation were perfect but most importantly I experienced the pleasure of a novel and delicious tasting experience. I'm always on the lookout for new taste sensations.

Fantastic presentation of amazing creative food pairing. Courses never repeat from visit to visit. Each course is a new taste sensation. Courses paired beautifully with unique wine selections. Attentive service. Sorry to see Nico leave Sacramento Street , but we look forward to Jackson Square.

I think the servers were great, the ambiance was nice, but neither my husband nor I liked the food all that much. There were no "Wow" moments when i would first taste the food, and the different dishes just didn't work for us. I was expecting a little more French influence to come through. That's not to say that it wouldn't be great for someone else with different tastes.
