"We've always enjoyed Nicolas in the past, but we had a bad experience this time. Two large loud parties downstairs, so we were seated upstairs. Our food arrive cold. My salad was swimming in dressing. My wife's fish was tasteless. Our waitress cleared our uneaten dishes and did not ask if there was a problem. It was so noisy in the restaurant and she was so overworked with too many tables, that I don't blame her for poor service. If management books large parties, they should warn regular patrons that Nicolas won't be able to give them the high level of service that it normally provides."

"I've heard people rave about Nicola's, but my dinner was very disappointing. The veal scallopine was tough to cut and hard to chew, and the asparagus must have been old because so much had been trimmed off of it. I tasted my friend's beef short ribs, and they were wonderful! Tender, flavorful, and a generous portion. A complimentary tiramisu was given to the birthday girl!"

"Had an average night with subpar food. Bruschetta was stale while my fusilli pasta was a little over priced for the value"

"Complimentary valet parking with a "no hurry" atmosphere. Very relaxing. Would have enjoyed a more intimate setting instead of feeling positioned so much in the open when it was a romantic evening, but tremendous service more than made up for the exposure. A bit pricy. An appetizer, 2 main courses, a bottle of wine, and 2 desserts, with appropriate tip, came to nearly $300."

"This neighborhood gem is the perfect place to meet others for a few cocktails and tasty flatbreads. You can even stay for an enjoyable dining experience with a wonderful wine selection. The staff is especially adept at helping to select the perfect pairing."

"I took my boyfriend there to celebrate his birthday before a movie at the Angelica, which is just across the street. We thoroughly enjoyed it. As a mature couple, we don't like too much noise in a dining experience. Nicola's was fairly quiet with a buzz of conversation, a few groups celebrating an occasion, and one off-and-on fussy baby :/. I'm sure it is even quieter during the week. We had a cocktail before dinner (try the Nicola Refresh!), shared a bottle of wine, both had an Italian sausage dish and shared a dessert (tiramisu), and all were excellent. We were seated in a cozy booth, which was private and romantic ( I preferred it to the table in the middle of the floor we had the last time we dined there). The bar is beautiful, but not too crowded or loud on Friday night. The rest of the establishment and the restrooms are very pretty, as well. Service was professional, unrushed, and friendly. Our meal cost was about $150 for drinks, dinner, and dessert, which I thought was reasonable for the total experience. Some of the more pricey entrees looked good - may try next time."

"We have dined at Nicoles since you opened and have seen the food quality has gone up and down over the years. My wife ordered a dinner salad with shrimp on top for $18 and it looked like a bag of lettuce with nothing else. We were disappointed, but not entirely surprised. I hope you can get the food quality back and maintain it.
Thanks,
Jody"

"We were pleasantly surprised at the authenticity of the Italian food, having been to Italy quite a lot. I would have like to have a larger selection of Italian wines, but the Valpolicella Ripasso was excellent. Will be going back."

"Our waitor was an older gentleman and was very nice. He was training a lady and it was her first night. The service was from the male was great. The female brought our food and walked away. She never asked if we would like cheese or pepper for our meal. So I had to stop her on the next trip around. She wasn't very familiar with the menu either. The part that definitely was disappointing was my bill was 75.00 and was at dinner with a client. She came and got the bill, I gave her 100.00 and she never came back. We sat for 20 minutes to never see her again. Then finally she came over and had an attitude asking if anything else was needed. Then she said do you want change. At that point and her attitude, I declined and let her keep it just to get out of there. Had I not been with a client, my response would of been alot different."
