Service was so bad, random people serving, bartender, bus boy, completely ignored by the single person handling one floor by himself until we asked for our check that the only time he attended to our table. Trying to get attention of staff for something but as if they did see us. No follow-up like how's your food, used dishes were not taken until we are ready for the coffee.

As usual, the food is authentic Greek and delicious!! My guest gas the seafood salad, which was on point. It consisted of grilled seafood including octopus and shrimp over a nice salad. I noticed tomato and cooked peppers, feta cheese and a creamy balsamic dressing. I had my usual: salmon over a Greek salad with tzatziki! Service is good and the bartender is a great mixologist. Good craft cocktails! The outside dining has a lot more ambiance than the inside, due to Covid. If you want the best lobster roll ever, this is the place to get it!

Had reservations and was seated promptly, was not rushed at all even though it was Mother’s Day and enjoyed brunch. Outdoor seating was pleasant and staff were attentive. Food was very good . Even ordered takeout that evening from there !

Gone twice in the past few months. Food is delicious and staff is nice, but both times I had to hunt someone down to let them know I was here for my reservation. There never seems to be anyone available to greet you and seat you even if you have a reservation. Servers are too busy to check if you want a drink refill. The food was delicious, although it was close to $60 for two salads and 2 sodas.

I had to leave. I had a reservation and had to wait 15 minutes (after I'd made a complaint) in order to be brought to the table. Then it total I'd spent 1.5 hours to have 1 soup, 1 portion of fried calamary (everything was delicious), had everything else wrapped & paid the bill (a total of almost $110 - including the $10 tip) for 4 people.
I really couldn't wait anymore, as I had to leave to work. But probably if I will had not asked for the rest to be delivered to the table wrapped ASAP, it'll had took another 2.5 hours. So if anyone has 1/2 day to spend on a pandemic, inside a restaurant...then by all means, this place will be their best choice.

This is the second time I have been at Nick's Bistro and it is just amazing. They have also have done a fantastic job on safety when it comes to Covid and being distant and having barriers for protection plus the decor they use is just so beautiful and welcoming. It is also pet and family friendly but also a great date spot. The food is delicious and staff is friendly and accommodating.

Always delicious authentic Greek food at Nick's Bistro. The bartender makes delicious craft cocktails as well. My go to is the Greek salad with grilled salmon. My husband had the grilled seafood ( calamari, shrimp and octopus) over salad. They have the best lobster rolls in the world.

This was a really pleasant outdoor dining experience. Appetizers were nice. I didn’t like the crab burger (which we all ordered) but sides were good. Should have had a hamburger or lamb. Service was attentive and gracious, really rare these days, especially outside.

We had an indoor table at Nicks. It was a pretty nice day and they had both of their doors open for ventilation - good thought. I had the black ink linguine spicy seafood dish and my wife had the gyro platter. Both were outstanding as usual. They didn't give anything before the meal, like hummus and pita bread like they used to. They took COVID precautions seriously. There was plexiglass screens separating the tables

The most wonderful choice for a birthday dinner for my 88-year old great aunt! It was delicious, unpretentious (but incredibly intentional in every aspect of the meal), and very accessible in terms of price and choice. A local spot with local connections that also felt like a special night out.
