After 18 years, this venerable fine dining establishment continues to woo me ! The elegant interior design is over shadowed only by the elegant dishes presented to diners. It has been close to 15 years since my last dining experience and I must say that it will not be very long before I return. The team of Melissa & Nicholas Harary has not lost any of the passion necessary in making this restaurant of their's a destination not to be missed. The 5 course tasting menu with the "Nicholas" wine pairing selections were in perfect harmony. The service was attentive, but allowed the table the space to enjoy each course and chat during the evening (4 hour seating). Overall, Nicholas has endured over time and continues to be a premier fine dining experience in the country and most definitely the "best", New Jersey has to offer. BELLISSIMA !!!!
I haven't been to Nicholas in a while and I was so looking forward to the tasting menu. Scallops, salmon and suckling pig were excellent. The other courses were only ok. I had the New Fashioned cocktail which was so great last time, but now was only mediocre. It was still a great overall experience but I wish the quality was more consistent throughout. It was a nice touch that they added a "happy anniversary" on our dessert plates.
Exceptional tasting menu! Service was wonderful. A special touch with their attention to detail.
Perfect from start to finish!
Was wonderful, as always. It’s great to be pampered!
The food is still very good after many years in business. It’s a bit pretentious but not overly.
Very well prepared food. Good service We have the special 4 course. Drinks were good Went there years ago for anniversary so we figured we would try it again.
Hands down the best Culinary experience you will find outside NYC and in NJ. Everything was absolutely phenomenal, from service to food. Will definitely be going back
My favorite restaurant formany reasons: elegant ambience, exceptional service and de look icious food served with exquisite presentation. The choices made for each dish always perfectly accentuate every flavor. Already looking forward to my next visit!
Service was ok, not what it should be
Food was good not great
The appetizers were outstanding and the service was lovely. Highly recommended. Just be sure to specify how you want your food cooked. I was offered salmon that would be pink the middle to which I said yes! It came out cooked through and dry.
Still the Best in NJ!
By far my favorite restaurant in New Jersey. I always have the lobster when we dine there and I have not been disappointed yet. The preparation is always a little different, but always fabulous. Great spot to celebrate as it is a bit pricey.
Celebrated my daughter's 30th birthday. Perfect atmosphere, excellent service, wonderful food!
Fantastic food and service!
This is without a doubt the most fabulous restaurant in the Red Bank area, as a matter of fact, one of the best on the East Coast! The food is devine, the service is 2nd to none! They are so creative in the culinary arts! The owner Nicholas and his wife Melissa deserve all the praise on having such a top notch establishment! We will definitely be back!
Best food I ever had. It was quite a culinary experience.
Your employee were very pleasant and very tentative II will definitely recommend a friend and come again
Usually great food though expensive. This time the chicken dinner was just ordinary. Definitely way overpriced.
The service however was especially outstanding: prompt congenial and accommodating to the customer. It is always very good.
If you haven't been here, quite simply, you must go.
The best ever for food and service. We celebrate our wedding anniversary here every year.
Wow, this is definitely a special restaurant for special occasions.
Not cheap, diner for 2 $300, but worth it for a special night.
Another amazing experience with outrageous food that is out of this world!
As always very nice ambience and awesome food.
Wonderful food,presentation and service
Nicholas is consistently excellent and is exemplified by their signature suckling pig entrée. They have a varied wine list that offers a wide range of price points. The cheese course provides a reasonable selection of cheeses at the appropriate stage of their lifecycle. Service is impeccable, balancing attentiveness with unobtrusiveness.
First time there and we were not disappointed. Really enjoyed it. Nice experience.
Portions were small and pricey but the taste was amazing. Quiet and cozy.
Nicholas never disappoints!
Food, service and wine were all outstanding.
We always leave in awe of the pairing combinations.
They did seat us in the back room for the first time and the table was next to the folding partition wall (which was closed due to a private party). I will request to be seated in the main room for our next visit, we prefer it.
Where do you go when you want superb food, outstanding service and an overall sublime experience? Why, Restaurant Nicholas, of course! There aren't enough adjectives to describe the superior level of every aspect of this dining experience, which is why we return here again and again to treat ourselves to quite simply the finest dining in the shore area. There are places that have good food, they know how to cook and present, but abysmal service and so-so ambiance. There are places that have a great view, but the food is mediocre and the again, the service is lacking. Then there is Nicholas. Thank you for the consistency and high standard. Ok, so jackets are not required and the wait staff no longer reveals the meals with the dramatic "voila!" with the uncovering of the plates....but the food and dishes are piping hot when they are supposed to be, the guests are still respectful of the upscale atmosphere in their dress and grooming, and Nicholas continues to evolve with the times, while retaining the special unique niche in the restaurant world. Our meals were well done, the flavors married perfectly, the courses seamlessly presented, and the service unobtrusive. We never felt rushed even though we stayed quite a while with friends we had not been out with for some time. If I could add anything (not change, but add), it would be to experiment with a gluten free option for the bread, and to think about tasting menus that do not mix protein types. Menus that include attention to good digestion become more important as we get older and this is an area to explore. Thank you again for our distinctive, delightful dining experience!
We celebrated our 19th anniversary with a wonderful dinner. Staff was very attentive, the menu was interesting and inventive, dinner was delicious. Recommend this restaurant for a date or special occasion.
A great place for that anniversary dinner! Tasting menu was fabulous as was the a la carte. Environment was good (especially the Chilluly glass flower knock-offs).
Service was attentive but not rushed....
Always superb...food was exquisite...service impeccable!
Service was not what it should have been...
Cheese selection was disappointing.
Appetizers and entree were good.
Nicholas never disappoints. Very creative, fresh, organic dishes prepared to the highest standards.
I highly recommend the chef's tasting menu...and if you are adventurous ( with two people) try the paired wines - one can have the paired cellar selection and the other can have the Nicholas selections, its like having a wine tasting with dinner!
One of the best meals my wife and I have ever had. Service was outstanding.
Surprisingly good restaurant. Definitely 1 Michelin Star worthy possibly 2.
Fabulous 3-Course Dinner for our Wedding Anniversary. Service was impeccable. Food was outstanding. Outstanding wine list. Will definitely be back.
