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.
What Insiders Are Saying
Be your best Jenner and head to the Nice Guy in West Hollywood, an Italian restaurant to see and be seen.
Yes and no. The place is absolutely fancy The service is good but the food is not what we had thought to find in such a restaurant...deceiving. The starter a beef carpaccio was excellent but the entrees (fusilli bolognaise and spaghetti parmesan black pepper) where I would say eatable
My favorite resturant. Great food, great drinks, and great service. We will be back!
The carpaccio is to die for! Along with the meatballs, fried mozzarella, cheesy garlic toast all as perfect starters for our group. The Jo Jo is a drinks favorite. Cacio e Pepe is also a favorite. Love the speakeasy intimate feel.
Super cute restaurant, but very dark. The food was delicious.
I was worried when I made the reservation after reading other reviews about service and wait time since we were going to a show across the street at the Largo. When booking, it does say there is some wait time associated, but since our reservation was at 6:15 on a Wednesday and the restaurant had just opened, we were seated immediately. The food and drinks were absolutely delicious and the servers were attentive. By 7:30-7:45 when we left it had definitely picked up. Our only complaint is that the restaurant is VERY dark - we were among several tables using our phones to read the menu - but that's not a deal breaker. If you've got somewhere to be, go early and you shouldn't have a problem!
Terrible, I’ve lived in NYC and been to the most exclusive of places you can think of. This was: 1h15 to get seated to a terrible -in the way- table although we had a reservation. Disgusting drinks. Good food, okay service and waiter, terrible hostesses and manager. stay away for your own sake. plus their only cool thing was a photo booth that was broken.
Amazing food and ambience. Perfect for date :) also everyone who served us were super nice too x make sure you try the mussels and spicy scampi for stater 😋😋
Date.! Place for sure.!
The place was super dark that you couldnt even see the food you where eating. Probably that's the reason why the place is so dark so you cant see the food cause its awful and the prices were ridiculous for what you are actually getting. The service was ok but overall not a very good experience. Will not recommend and will definitely not go back.
I had reservation at 9:30pm, we got there at 9:20 the host was so rude and she said we don’t give table to Open Table reservations anymore and you only can sit at the bar or Patio. I asked for the manager and the guy came (Alex) he was very very unprofessional and rude as well. He wasn’t helpful at all. I have been so many times at the Nice guy before and had a great time! I won’t back again
Did not like the burger, found the cheese that was used cannot be paired with a burger. Gingerale was also a disaster. Service is good.
Nice ambiance & great drinks but they don't respect table reservations. Had a reservation for 10pm and wasn't given a table till 11:30pm. Had to ask the server 15 times to seat us and her answer was "I'll let you know"
I don't see what all the hype is about with this restaurant. The place was super dark and the prices were ridiculous for what you are actually getting. We normally order a bottle of wine with dinner but refrained from doing so because of the inflated prices and lack of menu options available. My husband ordered the pasta. Although it tasted good, we have never seen such a small plate of pasta served as a main course in a restaurant. We travel a lot and go to restaurants often but I saw nothing special about this place.
Terrible seating options for 2. We were brought to 2 terrible tables (1 facing a column, 1 next to wait station and busy door) only to sit at the bar. Food OK but very over priced. D-bag crowd. Will not go back.
I would definitely go back but service was slow took a while to get drinks and our waitress barely checked on us
We got the worst table in bar tables in pitch black corner away from the rest of the restaurant and the service was bad and staff running around back were we were sitting, makeing payments and stuff. I booked the table far ahead and really expected to get good seats like everyone else in the restaurant.
Do not go here. The food is AWFUL. Service is meh. No reservations but when you show up there's a ton of empty tables. We witnessed multiple tables send their food back. GROSS!
Service was excellent as always. Food is delicious. We had the anti pasta plate to start and it came with warm bread. Then we shared the pasta special and some truffle fries. Pasta was incredible, it was a spinach cavatelli with lamb 10/10. Drinks were good I had a lemon drop and my friend had a Moscow mule both were delicious.
World class lounge
The food was cold. Was given the worst table in the house, perhaps a table shouldn’t have even been in that spot. Very disappointing as i used to enjoy the food here very much
My dinner and experience at the Nice Guy was exactly what I was looking for on my 39th birthday. Thank you for making it a night I will never forget!! Food was unbelievable, best ambiance, and service. Really made me feel special.
It was my best friends 18th bday! we’ve been here a few times before & it was just as good as all the other times! love the staff and the ambiance is amazing! the portions are huge & so it makes up for the price! my best friend & I shared the calamari, the truffle fries, lobster pizza & cookies! the cocktails are strong & well portioned! love this restaurant!!!!!! we will be back many many more times
Amber was an amazing server, best service hands down!
Lovely setting, authentic Italian, good portion sizes. Dessert (chocolate bread and butter pudding) was amazing!
Reservations are 2 weeks out and we made a reservation for a friends birthday as early as we could. When we got to the restaurant they could only sit us outside in the tiny cold patio. It was quite boring and extremely tiny and doesn’t look like part of the restaurant. AVOID this place, it’s not worth the hype and money for mediocre food, celebrities probably get paid to go.
Did not live up to the hype. When walking out of the door, the manager was waking in and rudely pushed and rushed in rather than holding the door open for us to walk out. Hostesses were not so accommodating either.
Great food, service and cocktails. However, lighting is way too dim.
The Nice Guy was a great date spot! The ambiance and the atmosphere was a nice and private feel but also sophisticated. The calamari was excellent and the service was superb. A bit on the high end but it is a great spot for a night out.
Read many bad reviews, however I have to say that me and my husband loved this place and was nothing like the negative reviews we read. Staff was very friendly and yes food is a bit pricy, but the ambiance makes up for it! :)
Came from Toronto. Worth The food and expectation. I will be back
Made a booking via open table to arrive and be told they had no tables available.....un sure how we were able to make a booking if they were fully booked! Our only option was to sit at the bar and wait to see if any tables didn’t arrive for their booking....which we were lucky enough someone didn’t arrive but this obviously took time!NO apology or complimentary things offered to make up for this mistake! Which I find is poor customer service!
They shoved us in a corner table outside and refused to seat us in the main dining room even though there were open tables. Even though I’ve been to the restaurant many times, I will not be going back due to the poor customer service.
Had a reservation and waited for an hour, was told that table I was suppose to have wouldn’t leave even through on open table, it states that you can only be at the table for 2 hours. Tables were open but was told it was for other reservations which doesn’t make sense. I don’t understand how a establishment can be so unorganized.
I went here for the (I’ve lost count times), and once again the service was impeccable! The pasta was delicious and more than anything ‘Chris’ was so awesome! His attention to detail is great and his just an all our rock star!
Love this place!
Great food, great atmosphere. Will be coming back!
It was a great experience. Very limited seating however and only accommodates reservations. Food and drinks were excellent. Great service.
Loved it! Very intimate ambiance
Amazing ambiance but super dark! It’s a great experience nonetheless
Great experience overall. Waiter was fantastic. Food was very good. But hostess was so rude it made for an unenjoyable experience.
