The Nice Guy
Loved by fashion icons and tastemakers alike, The NICE GUY is a great place to start your night with an elegant bite or take it to the next level with live music.
delicious food great music & ambiance as usual!
My favorite restaurant in LA, I come at least one a month.
Went to The Nice Guy before a show at Largo. This is an old-school Italian restaurant. Everything is a la carte. The prices are high. The food is delicious. We all cleaned our plates. How can you complain? Chopped salad is great. I had the skirt steak which was also excellent. Great wine selections. Great cocktails. My Old-Fashioned was perfect. And the piano player/singer was amazing. Added so much to the experience.
We went on a Sunday night and had great unobtrusive service- despite a change in server due to s shift change. Food was spectacular and the atmosphere made for an evening that felt like a special night out! I can sense that a weekend night would likely have a more vibrant tone. We will definitely be back!
Loved The Nice Guy only complaint would be that it’s very dark you will need your phone light to see the menu
Was treated like royalty when coming into the Nice Guy by valet, and matched service inside from Andre and Jovie our hostess and waiter. Definitely recommend for dates or just an escape from the city within the city. We will definitely be back! Jamie
Came in with my date for cocktails and dessert. We both really enjoyed our time and Katrina was very attentive.
Great food and entertainment. Service is a bit ropy and the place is too dark to even read the menu.
Fantastic ambience and simple, perfectly executed dishes. Transports you to another time and place. Once your eyes adjust! Very dark st first but not a problem. Thoughtful, gracious service. World class pizza. Perfect pasta. Loved the chopped salad and Brussels sprouts. Kitchen on the slow side- we were in a hurry to see a show at Largo and cut it close. So go for a leisurely dinner instead or make sure the kitchen knows your time restrictions. Excellent find!
Eggplant parm is FUEGO!
Sat us in a terrible table. But overall cool experience.
The food was really good, everything tasted really good & fresh
The restaurant was dark, needed the phone lights to read the menu& see the food.
The photo booth was a really nice touch.
Worst treatment I’ve ever received in a restaurant.
Appalling food at extortionate prices - venue is nice but no photography policy sucks
Although a few things are a little bit overpriced for what it is, still extremely great! Every dish we had was amazing ! Highly recommend this place for a good time with friends!
Great service and ambience. Cookies were divine. Definitely worth going to for a Hollywood experience.
Amazing spot with very friendly staff. Great food and drinks would highly recommend
We visited this restaurant with our family hoping to experience something special and local. The food tasted really good and the atmosphere was amazing. The valet was helpful as two of our kids did not have long pants which this restaurant requires the men to wear. My only disappointment was with our server who was not very kind and certainly did not seem pleased to have us in her section.
Very good food. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars was the restaurant was so incredibly dark. I had to use my phone to see the menu and you could barely see it eat. I get that maybe celebs come in and do not want to be seen but maybe wait til after 8 to turn down the lights that low.
Everyone made us feel welcomed and treated us like VIP’s. The food is outstanding and the cocktails are unique and delicious.
Very rude and they did not mention there is a dress code ANYWHERE but it happens that someone else did not follow the dress code they can stay because they paid for there special occasion! But others they can’t stay because they did not pay!
We booked a table and got bar table and told waitress that we wanted elsewhere but she said thats the only place available although lots were .
Loved it they made us feel sooo good
I love this place. Very classy, great wine and overall a great place to meet and have drinks with friends.
Greeted and seated immediately; always a great start for any dining experience. Started off with two signature cocktails , the “jojo” and “Nice for what“, drinks came out promptly and chilled to perfection. Second round of drinks , I ordered old fashions a martini. Our server burned my orange peel table side adding a very nice touch! For starters, our waiter recommended the calamari; it was crisp, lightly seasoned and cooked just right. Excellent! I opted for the Bolognese and my date tried the Lobster pasta. Meat sauce was rich, and tasty, her lobster pasta was superb. The portions were perfect ! Leaving just enough room for dessert. We ordered the peach crisp and waited for about 15 mins only to find out they were all out. I was looking forward to it - I’ll be back for it without a doubt! Hats off to the staff, very very attentively professional. Thanks for an amazing dining experience! Nice Guy for the win!
We felt a bit rushed. Although we appreciated the staff checking on us we felt like we couldn’t really enjoy a conversation without being interrupted and couldn’t enjoy our starters before our dinner got there.
Server kept spilling everything including red wine on my Gucci pants
The cost of drinks is crazy expensive. My wife had 2 cranberry spritzers and it cost $36!! Not fair. Not fair.
My boyfriend and I went to The Nice Guy for my 25th birthday and it was one for the books. I really enjoyed the atmosphere. It's perfect for a couples night out, it's a super intimate place to go since it's dark and quiet. I ordered calamari which was one of the best I've had. It was perfectly fried and a bit tangy. I also ordered the nice guy burger which was amazing! For once I also got a drink - spicy sienna. I wasn't excepting it to be as spicy as it was but it was delicious. My boyfriend went with pepperoni pizza - he said it was great. I don't remember our waiters name but he did a phenomenal job with his service. We couldn't get photos in the restaurant because you're not allowed to take any which I respect.
I'll be back for sure.
Food was delicious. The lighting is very dark , can barely see your friends on the other side of the table.
Manager is rude.
Food was just ok nothing to make me return.
Amazing experience! A must in LA. We loved it here and will definitely be going back again
Expensive, waiters aren’t around much, foods not that great, Olive Garden quality.
Food and selection is mediocre at best. This place is known for celebrity sightings but overpriced for quality of food.
Birthday. We ordered truffle fries which was the best dish. the cacio de pepe is a no no. the chicken picatta and the kale salad was okay.
Classy experience! Great place to bring my family from out of town
you have to try the shrimp scampi. it was made by God himself! Loved the ambience and the lowlight. very smooth, calming, and hip.
