It was a Birthday dinner which the hostess announced as we walked up to the hostess stand which was a bit odd. Otherwise the service was great, the food was good and for having to dine on a major street they actually achieved decent ambience. We will definitely go back.
The food was fantastic! I really enjoyed my lobster pasta and the brocolini was amazing! I got to taste the chicken picata off of my friends plate and that was savory and delicious as well.
The El Chapo drink was also tasty. Wish I had not driven so I could’ve had more el chapós.
The heater’s propane needed to be changed and we asked a few times but it never got done. The server took our order and came back 40 mins later to ask our order because he forgot. The food was rushed which was great but it was so salty that it was inedible. I never like to complain ever because we’re all human, but just some critical feedback.
Closed but still listed.
Everything was great except we were seated by the back door with no heater. It was out anniversary so it was a little disappointing.
Great service, amazing privacy. Would highly recommend.
I always love going to The Nice Guy. Although things have now changed a bit thanks to COVID-19, it's still the same great food, service, and ambiance you've come to know and love.
Amazing service and food...incredible. Pricey but worth it.
Service was awful table next to us was so crazy loud i couldn’t even talk to my dinner guest without raising my voice :/
Horrible service and horrible food I will never recommend this restaurant
The food is pretty overpriced for the amount you get and the ambience is different in covid because you’re sitting outside. However, it is good food and the service is nice
this is the 20th email I got for this survey!erflqerfmerklf
Really well set up for times of Covid- I felt safe and taken care of! They managed to pull off fairly similar ambiance considering it is all set up outside.
I was in town from Atlanta and I love the energy at the nice guy. Their specials are amazing and the cookies are great.
I really enjoyed my experience, the food was amazing. The service was excellent. Everyone was polite
The outdoor seating was cute. Though I do prefer it inside. But not bad for the circumstances. Staff was great and tentative to our needs. Lobster pizza is a must. ;-)
Excellent staff and service
Fantastic food and service!
All around a great experience! Delicious food, great ambience and amazing service! Great speakeasy vibe!
We came to the restaurant and they told us the place a had been rented out and therefore our reservation has been canceled. And we then had to wait 45 min to speak to a manger and then finally after arguing back and forth they gave us a table. I was so disappointed since this restaurant was one of my highly recommended and took my time out of trip to make sure to go there.
Birthday dinner for me with Hubs and Kids. Authentic food and great bar. Fun music and very comfy seating.
I suspect our experience was unique, but still very disappointing. We asked to move our reservation time by 30 minutes prior to noon the day of the reservation via phone. We were told, no problem. Upon arrival we were escorted to a very small out door patio (3 tables). There we sat, alone... listening to La Cienaga traffic. That said the service and food was excellent, but we left feeling like we were second class customers... no access to the music, the ambiance/vibe... etc. The space is super funky... but we were not given the opportunity to experience it. Clearly the staff was aware and were super given the circumstances, but shame on management to have made this call. Next stop... Yelp!
Went for a friends birthday, staff Wasn’t the most pleasant
We had reservations and we had to wait OVER TWO HOURS! ridiculous service. Rude staff.
We arrived at 7:15pm for a 7:15pm reservation for 4 people. We were told by the hostess that (1) our reservation was for 2 people, not 4 people and (ii) our reservation had been cancelled yesterday. Neither of those things was true. We pulled up our OpenTable reservation which showed an active booking for 4 people. We asked to speak to the manager. The manager said he was very sorry--that the restaurant always overbooks its tables and that we did have a reservation but they could not honor it. I've never had this experience in all my years of dining. Needless to say, I will never go back to Nice Guy.
We took my daughter her for her 21st birthday. She loved it. We saw A$AP Rocky and the food was delicious. Drinks were $18 bucks a pop but it was a special occasion so I didn’t mind too much. Great apps and entries. I’d recommend the chicken parm but don’t expect a side of pasta. The rigatoni bolognese was good too!
Bad table location
The ambience is nice , but a little to dim you barely see the menu . My waiter just was not attentive seem to be distracted .
Amazing as always
Good is mediocre but vibe is nice
Such good times 😘 highly recommend
The table was the worst table they could give us better table than table on the service road which each time a waiter walk would bump us !! I did not like the experience and I have mentioned we are celebrating a birthday they did not bring a candle while we have ordered a desert !! I’ll never go and I won’t recommend it to my friends
Waited for a table for quite a while but grabbed a few drinks on the house at the bar and enjoyed live music while we waited. Ended up with a great table, awesome meal and great service. Worth the wait. Had a great time.
Fourth time eating here - the ambiance is great but the service could be better and the food is tasty but ever so slightly lacking for the price. The vibe and decor are the best part, and the food does not quite make up for the lack of 5 star service which should be the expectation for a restaurant like The Nice Guy. Will likely be back but always expect more than we get.
Loved my experience here with my 3 girlfriends.
Way too dark, expensive and not tasty at all. Chicken parm was not warm, worse cocktails ever and they gave me a wrong bill. Only good thing was a photo both
Had to wait 40 minutes to be seated for our 8pm reservation.
