My boyfriend had taken me to Nicholas for Valentines Day and it was perfect. The ambience was perfect for an intimate date night, tables were not too packed together and the wine list was endless. The food was delicious but for the prefixed menu it...More

After reading the reviews I couldn't wait to try Nicholas. I was solo on business so I sat at the bar, decent atmosphere. I had oysters for an appetizer, they were ordinary. I ordered the lamb and it was good. That's it. Just good. I...More

Nicholas is "worth going out of your way", to coin a phrase. The chef is a master of fine culinary creations, service is flawless. Reservations recommended.

I enjoyed my experience with Nicholas, my only complaint was that the servers hovered at our table, making it a little uncomfortable to enjoy the good food. It was expensive but my wife and I thought it was worth it.

Wish I could offer specifics, but we ate there only once & it was a few months ago. I recall that their online menu was pretty close to what was actually offered (not always the case), so you should take a look at their... More
