About

This restaurant is permanently closed. A Re-Concepted Restaurant in the Fabled Carlos’ Space by Carlos and Debbie Nieto. Nieto's is decoratively updated although the gracious wood paneled walls remain. The dining room still has an imtimate feel to it, with a more "club" like atmosphere. The menu is extensive but familiar with modern day tweeks. Comfortable for family gatherings and dates alike.

Thank you Carlos and Debbie for more than thirty years of truly wonderful evenings. We have had the good fortune to share so many of the most memorable dinners of our lives with you. We reminisced on this last night about where we sat, who we were with, what we ate through anniversaries, birthdays, retirement parties, Christmas eves, wine dinners, business meetings, and just ordinary evenings. No matter the circumstances, it was always beautiful and delicious food matched by gracious and friendly hospitality that we will never forget. We thank you and wish you health and happiness for many years to come.

Sad to see Nieto's go. We've spent so many special occasions there between Carlos & Nietos's. We had a great, last dinner at this wonderful location.

We enjoy Nieto's so much, especially outdoor dining in the summer. We are very sorry to see the restaurant close its doors. However, we look forward to many more great experiences at Cafe Central in Highland Park with Debbie and Carlos.

Ask first if they are having a meeting at dinner time, if so forget it. Most unpleasant & noise level unbearable.

We have been going to Nieto's for a while. During our last visit we really enjoyed the grilled artichokes with a wonderful sauce.

Very mediocre. First order of artichoke hearts were hard with very little meat. Hostess brought out another one and it was exactly the same. I had the seafood salad and the seafood was overcooked, although the dressing was tasty. Service was very slow and one of the entrees was cold. Since we had waited so long for our meal we didn't request another one.

Monday night at Nieto's is a real bargain! Half price bottles of wine complement a great list of appetizers. I am particularly fond of the thin tuna carpaccio as well as the scallops. The flatbread provides leftovers for future meals.

We celebrated two 70th birthdays last Saturday at Nieto's. The food was delicious and the staff very attentive and fun. We plan to go back again soon.
