About Bistro Niko

Bistro Niko is a nod to Paris, right in the heart of Buckhead. The modern French fare is authentic & simple, while the affordably priced wine list, exciting cocktails and extensive craft beer list ensure that everyone finds something to suit their tastes. Grand ceilings, art from Paris and a patio that overlooks Peachtree make Bistro Niko at once a destination and a neighborhood restaurant.

Other Open Table reviewers described this restaurant accurately. The food is tasty, the scene is bustling, and the service is spotty. Before we were seated I went to the bar to order drinks and the bartender acted as if I were intruding upon her. Once seated, our waiter was disinterested. When I ordered appetizers for the table, he merely uttered 'ok' - nothing more nothing less. No engagement, no warmth. After the appetizers arrived (all quite tasty), the waiter took our main course order and disappeared until the check came. Dinner for four with 2 drinks each, 2 apps, 4 mains and 2 desserts cost $260 so readers can form their own judgment.

Bistro Niko is one of my favorite restaurants in Buckhead. The food is always expertly prepared and consistant. The Filet au Poivre, Duck breast, French Onion Soup, house bread and butter are all amazing.

It's not Paris but what is?\n\nExpect that the restaurant will be VERY noisy!\n\nThe food was good to excellent depending.. The service is good once we were served. Note, once we were seated, it was 10-15 minutes before a server greeted us...UNACCEPTABLE.\n\nAnd, our experience after several visits is that the staff as one checks in for reservations, is less than hospitable. We were told that outlet table would be ready shortly..5 to 10 minutes. We were seated 40 minutes later....UNACCEPTABLE.\n\nHowever, busy, this staff needs training!\n\nWith so many alternatives in Atlanta, unless you crave Americanized French Bistro cuisine, pass on this one!\n\n\n\nE

Have been wanting to eat here since we moved to Buckhead, and specifically wanted to eat on the patio. We finally got our wish and it lived up to my expectation. We had the small gruyere cheese puffs as an appetizer, the scallop entree and the NY strip. All were wonderful and we will definitely be dining here in the future.

Service is always good and friendly, food is excellent (had the best mussels and Bouef bourguignon and Baked Oysters Florentine the other night). They were very accommodating and able to swap potatoes for more veggies for us. Also, be sure to try their tarts as an appetizer as they are fantastic (we like the mushroom and the salmon ones the best). Valet Parking / outdoor dining is also available. A reasonably priced three course dinner is available and we often enjoy that too.

I had the Salad Nicoise and it wasn't bad, but wasn't good. Of all the Salad Nicoise that I have eaten in The U.S. , France & Switzerland it was at the bottom of the list. Had to ask for extra dressing as I could not taste any when the dish was first served. Did not care for the raw green beans either. My companion had a burger which was very good and the profiteroles for desert were delicious. The desert was free as it was my birthday. Everything else, wait staff, etc. was good.

This was a great Saturday night out dining experience. It's not inexpensive, but we love the casual yet upscale atmosphere and impeccable service. When I arrived, I was salivating over the prospect of splitting French onion soup with my hubby (and they do an incredible job of splitting it). But as we discussed food options over a very good glass of red wine, we realized that after the perfectly crusty flavorful French bread with a good slather of butter, the soup and a salad, we'd probably be too full for our entrees. So regrettably, soup was tabled for a lunch in the near future, and we ordered a salad and the veal. The tender veal is complemented by puréed potatoes, haricot verts and a deliciously deep veal au jus. Every bite was a pleasure. My partner is a creme brûlée fan and Bistro Niko serves the best one in town, but I was hankering for chocolate and opted for a simple scoop of ice cream. It was an excellent finish to a perfect meal.

My wife and I went to BN for her birthday which happens to be Valentine's Day. We found out a few days before our dinner date that they were going to have a 'limited' menu and we were a bit concerned. However, the 'limited' menu was anything but. I had the duck while she had the scallops. We had started off the evening with a cocktail and crab cake appetizers. Then followed by the main course and desserts. All was perfect and the service was excellent - attentive but no overbearing. We will be back.

Bistro Niko was the location for our Early Valentine's Day celebratory Brunch and it was nothing short of fantastic. I love New Orleans and its cuisine, so Niko was perfect: great ambiance, an amazing menu, good jazz, exceptional food and OUTSTANDING service- ask for Borgi, he will take excellent care of you in traditional European style, something typically lacking in American restaurants. We started with an assortment of raw oysters (all great) and a few cocktails. The main course was Croque Madame for myself and Eggs Norwegian for my fiancee. We were both blown away. For dessert, we shared the baked meringue with caramel, almonds and creme. It was exquisite. Cannot recommend Bistro Niko strongly enough!

We arrived to the reservation on time. We were told that they were running a bit behind and that our table would still be about a 15 minute wait and that we could wait at the bar. I verified with the hostess that they would physically come get us at the bar and she confirmed. We went and had a drink at the bar. 15 minutes came and went. 30 minutes in and we were starting to question. Finally, after a 50 minute delay and watching the hostess come to the bar to get various couples and groups and seat them, we decided to check out the situation. We went back to the hostess stand and it turns out they had given away our table. We sat at the bar for 50 minutes patiently waiting for our table and they gave it away. On top of that, I received an e-mail from Open Table that I was listed as a 'no show' for the reservation and would be losing points. Needless to say, I was quite annoyed and disappointed by the whole experience.

This was my first visit to Bistro Niko. I was visiting Atlanta and took my son and his fiancé out to dinner. My son had been here for drinks before, but none of us had ever had dinner here. The service and food were impeccable. Emily was our server and made great recommendations for wine and food. My son and I both had the Maine Scallops St. Jacque (Emily said they were the best in Atlanta)and his fiancé had the Georgia Mountain Trout Amandine, which was also recommended by Emily. Both dishes were fabulous. The scallops were served over potato purée with a white wine sauce and the flavors were absolutely wonderful. The restaurant is a bustling, fun place. If you are looking for somewhere quiet, this is not the place, but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

A friend and the concierge at the hotel both recommended this restaurant. After researching the menu on-line we decided to give it a try. We ordered the croque monsieur saumon and the salade nicoise with the idea that we would split the two dishes. The croque monsieur was supposed to be salmon on grilled brioche with cheese. The vaunted bread was simply white bread with the crusts removed covered with a thin slice of smoked salmon and some nondescript cheese. The bread was barely toasted, certainly not grilled was neither warm nor crisp nor eggy. The salad came pre-split with dressing on the side as requested. It made two generous portions and contained a reasonable amount of canned tuna, lots of tomatoes, two fingerling potato halves, a few crunchy green beans and lots of salad greens. The dressing was disappointing, not much taste except that of the vinegar. After our meal was served, we never saw the waitress again, although at 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon, they were not terribly busy. We could not get our water glasses refilled. Since I did not care for the salmon, I finally flagged down a busboy and asked if our waitress could get me some bread to go with the salad. He said he would do it and delivered a few slices of poor quality 'French' bread, cold and equally cold butter which could not be spread on the bread. Considering the cost of the menu items, I did not feel that we got food that reflected them. There are many other places to eat in Buckhead. Try one of them.

Our party of nine enjoyed first class service and tasty food when we dined at Bistro Niko when visiting Atlanta. Our lead server, his crew and the entire front house staff are experts in the field of providing first class restaurant hospitality and service. The restaurant is gorgeous and has captured the essence of an authentic Parisian Bistro (including the restrooms, which deserve a visit even if nature is not calling!). The food was good and prepared 'comme en Paris' meaning rich sauces and minimal added extra seasoning, spice and salt. I was a tad bit letdown by the much acclaimed scallop entree; they were a bit rubbery and the dish somewhat bland. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their choices and shared my sentiment...'good' (not not WOW!) food, but we all agreed that the service was 'magnifique!!!'.

First time dining here. Loved it! Andre Cash was super and helpful. Our secluded table in the front dining room was perfect. Plenty of room between tables so we felt comfy and not crowded. Moscow Mule and Midnight in Paris were great along with Prosciutto and Blue Cheese Tart to start things off. Scallops St. Jacque and Short Rib Bourguignon were so good! Scallops were perfectly cooked sitting on top of potato puree surrounded by asparagus. Short Rib slow cooked in red wine with veggie. So good and tender. I used the French bread to mop up my plate. Dessert was a complimentary order of profiteroles (celebrating our anniversary) and we also had the Apple Tart with cinnamon ice cream and a Caramel Sundae. Overall what we have come to expect from a Buckhead Life restaurant. Viva la France!

Tartare was very horseradishy which was very nice. Made a special request in substituting a side, honored well. Food came out swiftly. Service was efficient almost too much so. Felt a bit rushed. Server was earnest but not necessarily intuitive. Coffee service was awful, from near turpentine calibre decaf to having the server spilled some of it onto the saucer--then not bringing me another napkin when I cleaned it up. Restaurant smelled good, which is sometimes lacking in fine dining. Staff should pay attention to bathroom maintenance, bathroom could have been more tidy.

The waiter was very attentive and kept our water glasses filled and the coffee flowing. The menu is very nice with just enough choices.

My wife and I have been to Bistro Niko several times recently and have enjoyed everything about it. But this time was the best. My entrée, Boeuf Bourignon was delicious, so tender it almost fell apart just by looking at it, and was served on mashed potatoes and with carrots. I sopped up all the wonderful sauce/gravy with some of the very good bread that arrived (with generous butter) almost before we sat down. Water was refilled almost after every sip, and a bottle of water also was put on our table. I would rate the entire experience six stars.

We chose this restaurant because it had very high ratings and was close to our hotel. We came away wondering how the restaurant got so many high ratings. Our best guess is that it is because it's very close to a lot of hotels and appears a bit unique and interesting. This isn't a bad restaurant. It's just not a good restaurant. We were in Paris this spring and ate at several neighborhood bistros, which this restaurant attempts to be. They aren't close. Sorry. As a couple of examples, the french onion soup was equal parts soup and cheese, literally. There really was enough cheese in the soup to make a decent sized pizza. We took half of it out of the soup and left it on the plate. Perhaps the chef will understand he/she can increase her profit margins by changing the amount of cheese here and no one will notice. The beef in the beef bourgingnonne had been 'browned' before stewing...but instead had been blackened. While the meat was tender, it was also crunchy. So, I would say that this is a bistro-like restaurant and if you want something a little different that is sort of French, this is a good choice.

I was celebrating my birthday and everybody from the front desk, to the server, acknowledged it. That was impressive. \nI did get a birthday treat, but could not eat it because was not gluten free. On my reservation I clarified that I was going here because of the many gluten free options they had. I had to order some sorbet to eat while the rest of my party enjoyed the birthday treat.\nService was not very well timed. At some point I thought the server was already gone for the night. He was very friendly though.\nThe noise level was very energetic. It was not easy to hold a conversation.\nFood in general was good. The appetizer, mussels, were very good.

My associate enjoyed her meal very much. BUT I ordered a grilled chicken salad and the chicken was the worst I have ever had in a restaurant. It was not edible. Very disappointing. The bread, service, and ambiance were good. I will chalk this up to an isolated incident. Maybe they should take a look at their meat supplier.

Brought my parents to Bistro Niko for my dad's birthday. The best thing throughout the entire lunch was the oysters we got as an appetizer. They were fresh and delicious. Ambiance was OK, reminiscent of 1920s Jazz Age with the live jazz music playing in a corner of the restaurant. Service was decent - the servers assistant kept our water glasses full. The food was inconsistent. We ordered the duck confit - duck was dry, flavors were alright.\nSteak and eggs - steak was ordered med rare, but came out more med, eggs were dry.\nPork belly - the best entree we ordered, juicy but not greasy and the duck potatoes were awesome.\nSteak tartare - reminded me of dog food, presentation was horrible and the steak was cut so small, that it almost was a paste. \nOysters - ordered the oysters from PEI, LI, and BC - all were delicious and fresh, best thing we had.

It was a great place to brunch with my visiting family. My quiche was absolutely out of this world. They have great pastry, as a french restaurant must. My husband had the french toast. It was in no way soggy - with the perfect amount of cinnamon. Our guests loved it, and it was a great way to have a special meal where we could still accommodate her young daughter. They had authentic and creative dishes, but also any style eggs, perfectly crisp bacon, well seasoned sausage, and potatoes. Foods that every parent can work around for their child.

Given it was a great day out, we chose Bistro Niko over other good brunch places because of the outdoor patio.\n\nHowever, after we asked for the patio, the host said they were all 'full' with a wait of 10-15 minutes. It was a lie because there were at least 5 empty tables outside, and we were not a large group (just 2 people). Anyway, we waited by the bar and was eventually led to the patio for our meal.\n\nOverall we enjoyed the food but we are not pleased with the service.

We started with excellent cocktails at an outdoor table beside the bar. We were seated about 20 minutes later than our reservation but it was not a problem to the three of us as we're not in a hurry and enjoy the time to relax and visit. The appetizers, salads and entrees were cooked to perfection and ended up being more food that we could eat. The waiter was attentive but not to all of our needs without being too present.

Sadly, it was 'meh'. We were really looking forward to a wonderful French meal for a special occasion. \n\nTo start, the waiter talked very fast and was difficult to understand. It didn't really get any better. Appetizers were GOUGÈRES, oysters and the classic French Onion soup. The oysters surpassed the soup cheese puffs. The soup was under seasoned and just ok; we expected more from a French bistro. The cheese puffs, couldn't tell there was any cheese at all in them.\n\nFor the entree we had Bouillabaise and Cassoulet. The Bouillabaise had more of a sauce than a broth and also lacked seasoning. The Cassoulet which had duck, sausage and pork belly should have burst with flavor; sadly, and oddly, it was flat and lacked flavor...and seasoning. We also ordered a side of pommes frites which came out good; hot and crispy.\n\nSo, overall, a disappointment and not worth the money we spent (which was considerable with a couple glasses of champagne and a nice bottle of wine).

My husbands was supposed to be spicy because of sausage and his dish had NONE, he was not happy, it ended up being just potato and pork which came out quite bland.

My girl friend and I arrived around 5:30 on a Sunday. We were taken to an out-of-the-way table for two, in the bar area, with a POS terminal on one side, and a server station on the other.\nThe restaurant was nearly empty, except for a hand full of parties.\nSince I like to sit next my lady, we asked for another appropriate table. The hostess told us to wait there, and she would check for another table. She came back around 4 minutes later, and moved us to a banquette in the main dining room.\nOur server told us about the specials of the day, one of which was a crab and shrimp stuffed squash blossom appetizer, that was deep fried. Two came on an order for $15.50, although our server told us, after checking on it first, that it was $13.50.\nUnfortunately, we both thought it was bland, and not worth any price.\nOur entree was a different story! We ordered the Loup de Mer, which is a sauteed branzino fillet, served over a bed of spinach, with fingerling potatoes. It was moist and delicious.\nWhile we were finishing our appetizer, a food runner brought out our dinner, which was a lot sooner than we expected. When our server came over to check on us, he, also, was surprised how fast our food had come out.\nBefore I even had a chance to take a bite, a manager came over and asked us how our trout was?\nFor a moment I was confused, since we hadn't ordered trout.\nIt turned out, we, indeed, had been served trout(someone else's).\nThe manager told us that they would have our branzino out as soon as possible, and he would wrap the trout to go.\nAs a side note, we had the trout the next night, and it was very good, as well.\nOur server corrected the appetizer charge disparity on our check.\nIn spite of it all, except for the stuffed squash blossom, my girlfriend and I enjoyed our evening.

I would strongly suggest ordering only foods that are traditionally French since I believe that is where their expertise is, after all they do advertise themselves as a French Bistro !! I have had the Skate Wing on previous visits and it is excellent and something usually found in French restaurants.

Ambience is very upscale and we had a cozy banquet that was great for a date! Waiter was very friendly and accommodating. I've been to this restaurant before and they are very bad about bringing a course to the table before you finished what you already have, so we ordered courses separately. None the less the caesar salad arrived before we finished starters. The caesar salad was $11 and surprisingly horrible. I asked the waiter if it was good and he said it was superb. Croutons were stale rocks, dressing tasted like from a bottle, cheese was sprinkled not shaved. Told the waiter it was bad and he said he would take it off the bill, but when the bill arrived it was on it. We shared the duck breast entrée which was excellent.

We have come multiple times for our wedding anniversary. It has a really nice feel to it for such a special day. The main dining room is noisy enough that you sometimes can not easily hear the conversation, but is also means that others can not listen to your conversation. There is also a quieter room off to the side if you do not want the noise. The service has always been excellent. The food is vey good, and I like the choice of ordering an appetizer, entree, and dessert at a fixed price and giving you choices in each of the three categories.

We also had the swordfish, the ribeye special, and some delicious calamari for dessert.\nI think if it wasn't so crowded and hurried we would have had a better time, but it was difficult to enjoy the dinner and conversation in such a busy part of the restaurant.

I am going to start with the positive. Bistri Niko is a beautiful establishment. The ceilings, the lights simply gorgeous however, it goes down from here. I made an 8:30 reservation indicating it was our anniversary. We arrived around 8:15 and were told we needed to wait for a table and wouldn't be seated until closer to our reservation time, we were told we could wait at the bar but we walked past several open tables in the main dining area... Several. We stood at some tables by the bar, until we were told we could be seated. Here is the kicker. We were taken to a table in the bar area right behind where we were standing that was open the entire time!!! So why did we have to wait? The bar area is SO loud. If someone tells you they are celebrating their anniversary why would you sit them there at the bar? I am torn on this review. My food was amazing, my husband's was not! He ended up eating some of my food. Which he agreed was the better choice. I have seen good and bad reviews of Bistro Niko based on my food I would come back, my husband is not open to this at all.

Food was less than desirable during our visit in July 2015. Hence we didn't come back. But after a year, we thought we would give this another try. Again, food was not good. Service was even worse. First the server got my order wrong. Then it took forever to get the dinner. Not much attention was given to us during our meal. After the dinner, I had to summon the manager to see if this was the new, lower level of service we should come to expect: the server didn't not pick up the dirty dishes after we finished, he did not clean off the bread crumbs. We dined with dirty dishes all around us and crumbs everywhere. And food wasn't that great for us to put up with the poor service. We are disappointed to say this is no longer our favorite dining spot, and it was for many years before this.

Overall, I really enjoyed my evening. The service is impeccable. There were plenty of employees standing by to readily refill your water and help in any way. All were pleasant and attentive. \n\nThe food - I did not enjoy what I got (Veal) as it was pretty bland and a lukewarm at best when served. However, my two dinner mates had absolutely delicious meals - the beef bourguignon and the ribeye. The sauce on the bourguignon was the best I have ever had and the butter atop the ribeye was phenomenal. It was the first steak my husband ate and didn't ask for A1. \n\nDessert was equally wonderful. Between the three of us, we had the creme brulee, the citrus tart and the chocolate sundae. The creme brulee was good, but nothing special. The citrus tart tasted like the most wonderful lemon meringue pie you have ever had, topped with the most delicious meringue ever - the perfect toast that gave it a campfire feel that was unusually wonderful. Now, don't let the sundae fool you - this was made to please kids and adults alike. The toasted marshmallow, brownie bits and toffee were the perfect touch to jazz it up. \n\nTry and request the private room behind the hostess stand or a booth. The design of the restaurant is so that there is a LOT of foot traffic right in the middle of the restaurant. I found it distracting to have a steady flow of servers and guests constantly walking behind me. Traffic jams seemed to occur directly behind my seat at well. Had we been in a better seat, I think the ambiance would have been even more enjoyable - especially later in the evening when they dim the lights.

We went to brunch for my daughters birthday. The food was amazing. Trout Almondine was flaky and moist, potatoes & green beans were just right not to crisp or hard. French Toast was light, fluffy & large. Bacon wasn't overcooked. Kevin our waiter was very attentive as were the other staff. Definitely will return.

Chase, our server was fabulous! We asked her specific questions about the items on the menu as well as her personal opinion. She was attentive and at the same time allowed us our space to enjoy the evening. Food was delicious! We started with the Lobster Bisque and Mussels for appetizers and had the Skate and Haddock for our entrees. The Apple Tart is to die for with a cup of coffee at the perfect temperature. We sat outside and enjoyed the cool air and music. Couldn't have been a more lovely evening.

After being seated our waiter delivered our menus, described the specials, then deserted us for quite a while. He obviously forgot us. Wine we selected was not available, we selected a French wine, they substituted a California selection, odd for a 'French' restaurant. We were a couple and though the restaurant is quite large they seated us next to two tables of 20 people each. They were extraordinarily loud, which made what was supposed to be a nice dining experience not as pleasant as it should have been.

My meal was great until the end of the night. I paid part of the tab with a gift card. I had cash to leave as I was leaving. Before I could put the $20 bill on the table, the waiter came back, looked at the tip left on the remaining 2 credit cards and reprimanded me for not tipping more. I guess he assumed that I wasn't going to tip. I felt humiliated and stammered that I was going to leave cash. I put it down and left as soon as possible.

I have been to Bistro Niko once before but for lunch and was not impressed with the food. It was when the restaurant first opened and I wanted to try it again. We went for dinner and even asked the manager while there if it was a busy night. His response (while helping remove our used plates that we had to ask be cleared) was that it was average or even slow for a Saturday evening. We had the most inattentive waitress to the point of having to get up and find the manager and hand him the check to be able to leave. The service was painfully slow, wine and food were not coordinated and I did not even feel like leaving any tip. I finally decided to leave 10% as one never knows what the other side of the story is. As you can guess, Bistro will never be on my list of list of restaurants to recommend.

Bistro Niko was more than my husband and I expected. The valet was quick and professional and the ladies in the front when you come in were very friendly and courteous. I love the ambiance, very romantic. We had reservations, so we were seated in no time, our waitress was helpful with her suggestions, polite, and kept a smile on her face at all times (I wish I could remember her name). Drinks and appetizers were delicious, but our main course was divine. I had the pan roasted breast of duck over red cabbage with crisped duck potatoes, and my husband had the beef short rib bourguignon, both dishes were very tender and burst with flavors in our mouth. During the course of our meal, the manager came by and asked how we were and our meal. Our entire experience was romantic, almost like a scene out of a movie filmed in Paris. The staff was steadfast and friendly, the crowd was upbeat and grown. I would recommend anyone wanting to propose, have a date night, want a romantic setting, or just a taste of Paris to come here and truly enjoy themselves. A party of 4 or more is nice, but it really brings out the one on one mood in Bistro Niko. The chef did his thing and I commend him for perfecting the taste of Paris. To the manager and staff at Bistro Niko, thank you from the bottom of our heart for making out time there, magical.\n\nTia and Matt

This was a great spot. The food was so delicious and the wine ever more so. Our waiter was on point, giving us enough time between courses but not rushing us in any way.

The only downside to this restaurant is the size of the bar as it wasn't very big and it makes it hard to go for happy hour when it is overcrowded. We actually arrived at 7:00 and still couldn't find a seat at the bar. And let's talk about the noise level. Do not go there is you can't 'speak up' as everyone who was speaking was 'fighting' to be heard. But we took it in stride. Definitely not a place for a quiet romantic dinner. You need to be in the mood to tolerate the noise level. But I would go back for sure.

This was recommended as a Buckhead version of a Paris cafe. Our guests did not want to dine outdoors because it was windy; we always eat outdoors in Paris.

I haven't dined there in several years. I wish I hadn't waited so long. Our server was excellent. I ordered the Caesar salad and the almond trout. The serving was so big I had to take some home.

I had a lovely birthday dinner at Bistro Niko. My soft shell crab appetizer and monkfish entree were delicious. My son always loves the Caesar salad and steak au poivre. My husband thinks the soupe à l'onion is the best in Atlanta. The wait staff and servers were delightful and brought our table a 3-part cream puff filled with vanilla ice cream and covered with chocolate sauce when they inadvertently learned that it was my birthday. The plate came with the chocolate sauce message Bon Anniversaire! and a lighted candle.

Great midweek meal. The Tuna appetizer was well presented and very tasty. The beet and goat cheese salad was excellent (seemed pricey for quantity/type received). All our entrees were excellent - Steak Frites, Salmon, Short ribs and Fois gras. Well presented, decent portions with accompaniments and delicious! Nice setting for brunch, lunch or dinner.

This was my second visit to Bistro Niko. My first was years ago when it first opened. While I thought it was ok back then I didn't know why everyone was raving about this French restaurant. I never went back because there is no shortage of really good restaurants in Atlanta. For the 4th of July, we wanted to be in Buckhead and some friends wanted to go to Bistro Niko. Wow. so glad I did!. Everything we ordered was outstanding. The only disappointment was that the had run out of escargot. For appetizers, we thought we had gone to heaven with the The Grand Platter Charcuterie​. The chilled soup Gaztapo soup was amazing and we had to get a second order the gruyere cheese puffs. Finally, we shared two main courses, the Lamb and the Steak Au Poivre. Yummy. We just couldnt order dessert because we were so full!!! I'll be back!!

My husband and I came to Bistro Niko because it was walking distance from the Mandarin, where we were staying. We ordered the mussels for our app and they were delish! We especially loved the broth and dipping the yummy bread in it. We both ordered the Coq Au Vin and were both very impressed with how good it tasted. Lastly, the waiter surprised us with a complementary dessert for my Husband's birthday which was a nice bonus. We also noticed how much more affordable Bistro Niko is compared to other restaurants in the Buckhead area. We really enjoyed our meal and our visit. Our only negative was the waiter's over the top enthusiasm for his job. It was a little too much...like he was putting on a show. We just wanted him to be real and simply serve us our food. Overall, we would definitely come back again.

This was our first time to Bistro Niko. The dining room is beautiful and feels like a bistro in Paris (or at least as Americans think one should look.)\n\nDue to a nearby commitment, it was most logical for us to have an early dinner at 4:30pm. That was fortunate since we were able to order from the less expensive lunch menu. We thought that the 3 course “les formules” menu for each of the three of us was good value and would let us try lots of different things.\n\nThe appetizers of white bean soup and the mesclun salad were nice but nothing special. The croquet “Monsieur” au salmon, however, was probably the best thing we ate. For the entrees we had a nice “shrimp en brique” and a duck confit. Again, good but nothing special. The “chicken paillard” had a slightly rubbery texture. For dessert we had the crème brulee which, again, was good but not great. The baba au rhum was excellent.\n\nThe service was attentive and pleasant.\n\nWhile we enjoyed almost everything, only a couple of things rose to the level of very good or better. I wouldn’t be in a hurry to return.

This was not a bad meal and, in many ways, it was quite good. But, the rushed service and too little time between courses left us feeling like some one was in a hurry to turn over the table. Our server was friendly, and the rest of the staff was attentive. It just didn't feel right, and that affected the overall enjoyment. The food was not the best we've ever had, but it was good and reasonably priced for the area. Of the things we tried, the oysters on the half shell were plump, tasty, and perfectly presented. The beet salad was just OK -- a bit too much vinegar in the dressing, and not much going on to compliment the beets. The Dover sole was very good and the bouillabaisse too -- though the latter would have been more enjoyable with a lighter, more aromatic broth. Better pacing on the service and this would have rated higher.

Authentic French Cuisine is what I had in mind and Bistro Niko delivered. They have a most friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. There are plenty of choices on the menu, however, not so many choices as to overwhelm. Fresh ingredients prepared to perfection. I had the French Onion Soup, Trout Almandine with a small salad on the side, my wife had foies gras and one of the special's of the day. For desert our waiter brought out profiteroles in chocolate sauce with vanilla ice cream. This was generously given as a surprise to both myself and my bride of 24 years. I did mention in my reservation that evening, my wife and I were celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary. A nice touch that capped off our wonderful dining experience.

We enjoyed Bistro Niko for the first time on our recent Anniversary. The atmosphere was nice once we got to a good table. We mentioned to the waitress that we would like somewhere a little quieter and she took us to the loudest room in the restaurant - right near the entrance where it was packed. We didn't understand this choice as it was clearly anything but quiet and the main restaurant was not packed. We asked to go somewhere else and ended up at a great table where we could see out to Peachtree. Waiters were attentive. One meal was delicious while one was just okay. We were discussing it being our anniversary and they brought us a nice dessert on the house with Happy Anniversary written on it. We had already ordered a dessert which they brought out at the same time. Wish they would have brought their 'gift' dessert out first then ask if we still wanted to order ours (we couldn't eat both of them and neither could be taken home), but the thought was nice and appreciated. Would definitely return.

Had a reservation here for 8:30 on a Friday... We had to wait 15 minutes for our table and then another 10 minutes after we were seated to even be greeted and our drink orders taken. The food was pretty good, but the terrible service greatly overshadowed it. \nWe ordered the 3 cheese fromage, which when described had no mention of nuts in it (I'm allergic.) Yet the plate came dusted with pistachios and the bread had walnuts in it. When I inquired if there were nuts in the bread, the server simply said 'no I don't think so, I think it's some type of seed.' Another server confirmed that they were indeed walnuts. After calling the manager over, we got some nut-free bread sent to the table. But the nonchalant attitude of the entire staff and inattention to details pertaining to my food allergies was simply unacceptable. \n\nI would certainly recommend the entrees and signature cocktails, but plan to be there an hour longer than you originally thought.

We were staying at the close-by Grand Hyatt on Peachtree; my sister had been to Bistro Niko previously; I had not. This is a great find. Oysters (raw) and champagne an unbeatable combo. We also shared the charcuterie platter (country pâté, 'faux' gras terrine, salami, prosciutto). Perfect mix for lunch. We went on the later side (1230 Open Table reserve) and sat inside as Peachtree St can be rather busy. Good prices. great (emphasis added) service, and the food was wonderful.

I took my friend for her 90th birthday lunch and she was absolutely delighted! Every dish(and we had soft shell crab, flatbread, mussels, salmon salad!)was better than the one preceding it and the complimentary profiterole dessert was so delicious!

Great location, nice ambiance, lovely service and -- for the most part -- great food. My guests enjoyed their meals (scallops, beef burgundy) and I would have enjoyed my pasta with seafood if it weren't for the 'Calamari by Goodyear' in my dish. The calamari were so tough and rubbery, I couldn't even get my teeth into them. I set them aside on my butter plate. The rest of the seafood in the dish (shrimp and scallops) were terrific. I should have complained when I first bit into the squid, but I didn't. After the meal, I mentioned it to the server, who simply said, 'Oh, I'm sorry.' When the manager came over and we told him the problem, he said, 'Oh, next time you might try the skirt steak. It's very good.' Next time? You think?

BEWITCHED by the best Carrot Ginger Bisque (with baby shrimp) in Atlanta and some really good veal tenderloins; BOTHERED by the consistently mediocre, at best, service -- especially for a a high-priced restaurant with good food; and BEWILDERED by how Bistro Niko can continue drawing large (and noisy) crowds when the service is so insultingly indifferent. We've been to Bistro Niko 6 or 7 times, and we've enjoyed most of the food. But each and every visit we've vowed not to return because of the inefficient and sometimes just plain negligant service. We keep hoping; we keep being disappointed. Buh bye, Bistro Niko. We'll use our Ultimate Dining Card elsewhere.

Noise level was so bad we could not talk, hear, or enjoy our dinner. The bar is very close to the dining area, but perhaps the ceiling could be 'conditioned' for softening the noise? Although the menu and service were both excellent, we were so anxious to leave so that we could actually enjoy visiting with each other. Will not return or recommend!

We had a wonderful dinner on Friday night. We stayed in a smaller dining room, less busy and more quiet than the main level. It was French cuisine at it's best with the tasty food and portions bigger than a typical French restaurant. Soups (I had truffle bean soup and my friend had a carrot/ginger soup) were delicious, as expected from French soups. My friend had a duck entree and I had a skate wing entree; we shared both and we loved them both. Wine selection was really good and reasonably priced. French dessert and double espresso combination was perfect to finish our dinner. And the last, but not the least James was doing a great job helping us with food selection and taking care of us. Overall, complete success: we will be back and will tell our friends about the pleasant experience.

A friend and I went to Bistro Niko during Buckhead Restaurant Week. We'd heard great things about the restaurant and wanted to give it a try. The ambiance was great, the food was good, and the service was...awful. It's unfair to judge an entire restaurant based only on one factor, but when that factor is such a huge part of our experience, it's difficult to ignore. Hopefully next time will be a more pleasant experience, with a different server.

This is one of the very restaurants in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. There are many, many restaurants in the area, but many don't quite make the list of very good. Bistro Niko manages to stay on top for all of the good reasons. Excellent, wide variety of food, excellent service with no hassles, and the warm feeling that this meal will be very good.. Other establishments in the area cannot say this, for they manage to piss off the patrons for some of the most stupid reasons: lousy service, excuses why it didn't come right from the kitchen, the regular cook was on vacation, we didn't get our shipment in today, etc.\n\nWhen paying for a high priced meal, one doesn't have to put up with this crap.

Bistro Niko has always been a great place for brunch or lunch. It has impressed by wife and me by having exceptional food and attentive servers but during this visit the experience fell short of our expectations. Our server, rather than taking care of her tables, was tasked with cleaning up a mess created when someone let a tray tip over. A myriad of members of the bus staff stood around while several tables were left unattended for the better part of fifteen minutes all the while various managers ambled through and around the dining area. To me this is either poor training or poor management or both. My hope is that it is not the new manner in which the restaurant will operate.

The food and service have always been good at Bistro Niko. My duck this time while ordered rare to medium rare was closer to medium and while the cabbage and potato that was included were a little cool, the sauce was excellent. Chicken was very good as was the caramel dessert. Chicken liver appetizer was just so so. I've learned to order beer or wine because all Buckhead Life restaurant drinks are pretty weak. As always it is hard to speak to your dining partner even at a small table due to the noise level but guess that is part of the vibe. They did offer a more quiet back room but it felt too secluded. Server was great. We had a very nice evening.

What a difference the waiter can make.....last time our waiter was absolutely amazing....this time not so much. The waitress never wished me Happy Mother's Day and when we were seated the waitress handed everyone a menu first, and then I received mine last....even though it was Mother's Day. Then I never received even one refill on my beverage the entire meal. Didn't feel pampered at all for this special occasion meal.

Last weekend was my last try at Bistro Niko. I really want it to be good because it is a lovely place with a great bar and great service. The room is beautifully decorated. Here is the bad part: the food is mediocre, that is all it is. We started with the ravioli appetizer: the pasta was unevenly cooked- some parts over and some under. The stuffing was tasty enough but it was swimming in a watered down sauce- as if the raviolis had come out of the water and not drained? My husband had mussels- too many were gritty and closed! also, the sauce was a watered down version of its former glory. I had the veal medallions and they were salt licks. the bread was cold and a bit stale. On a side note, and I do think this was a fluke- the champagne (for our kir royale) was not very cold, so those were disappointing as well. I really have tried to like this place. I can not recommend it.

I was meeting a friend for lunch on Wednesday around noon . While valet service is offered, the lineup of cars waiting to be valet parked was two cars wide and backed up all the way down to the street entrance. I decided to self park but then a huge number of parking spaces were reserved for valet parking only. I did eventually find a parking space but it was not easy. My friend who opted for valet was concerned about leaving her car with the keys in it for any extended time. This is Atlanta and car thefts are not uncommon.

Went to Bistro Niko on my wife's birthday as part of the Buckhead Diner Summer Dine Around. At first the hostess wanted to seat us in the middle of the large noisy room, but we opted for smaller slightly-less-noisy side room. We're glad we did, because we had James as our waiter. He was friendly, informative, and attentive. He warned us that the mussels appetizer would be garlicky but good, and he was right. The bread was great for soaking up the delicious broth. For entrees we had the trout amandine (excellent, buttery) and the scallops (very good). James brought out a complimentary birthday chocolate dessert that was sinfully good. No magnifying glass needed here -- every dish was quite ample. All in all, a very nice meal and evening.

We patronize Bistro Niko regularly and go with a large group every Christmas Eve. This was the worst experience I've ever had at one of the group's restaurants. The waiter was totally incompetent. Over 20 minutes for drinks to arrive, didn't bring 3 of the appetizers, tried to pour wine before it was even opened. Poured a third of the carafe of cocktails all over the table and didn't even clean it up, to say nothing of the wasted third of a $44 carafe. Left the table without taking the entree order for two people. Had to ask for dessert and he delivered ice cold coffee. To say nothing of the obnoxious patron that literally shoved my wife to the side because he wanted to sit 'next' to his wife at a two-top table. Asked for the maitre'd but 'he's not available'.

We have been at this restaurant several times and always had good service and food.

I'm a big fan of the Buckhead life restaurants, but the Bistro was just ok for us. The food started off strong with appetizers - I had the crab cake (a special) and my husband had the escargot. Both were delicious and our favorite part of the meal. I ordered the bouillabaisse which was flavorful and had a ton of seafood. Seafood was fresh, but the dish didn't make my eyes roll back in my head. My husband had the hanger steak frites. The steak was tough and chewy and the frites (fries) were completely forgettable. We had a sundae for dessert which was really tasty. Service was good, our water glasses were always full. It was really noisy and loud, so can't recommend this place for romantic dinners.

It's not 'trendy' for me as I break out in hives if I eat it so I do my best to stay away from the wheat products. Nice to go somewhere they respect that and make it a priority! The Carrot Ginger Soup is the BEST - so yummy!!

We had a very nice Father's Day brunch at Bistro Niko. Our server was excellent- very friendly and professional- I wish I could remember his name to give him a proper shout out. He recommended the perfect wine for what I was looking for- and I appreciate that he didn't go to one of the most expensive ones on the list which tends to happen a lot. My father is a bit plain and picky when it comes to food- he was most satisfied with his eggs benedict- ate every single bite. I really enjoyed the chicken liver pate and the crème brulee. This is a great restaurant and I would definitely go back!

I was persuaded by the waiter to order the ribeye special that came with butter with 19 herbs over the hangar steak, which I love. The butter on the ribeye was overkill for me and very rich. I scrapped it off the steak, but it tasted like it was still there. The lighting in the restaurant was dark, so I inadvertently ate a piece of fat, which was gross. The pomme frites were very good and my girlfriend liked her lamb chops very much. The server offered us a complimentary dessert, but neither one of us wanted dessert or an after dinner drink. I think the restaurant should have taken the ribeye or at least a portion of it off the check, which they did not do. I would never order this entree again.

First off beautiful restaurant and exceptional staff. I was there with my wife celebrating an anniversary and noted so in open table. I was welcomed by staff with congratulations. One thing I noticed is when celebrating occasions like this at other establishments both in fine dinning and more casual restaurants, is the offering of a kind gesture either glass of house wine or Champagne or even a desert with some sort of special touch. Wasn't offered that here. Now that did not effect the score I submitted but worth noting. \n\nSo Staff gets an A+\n\nDecor gets A+ \n\nThe food for me was good not great. Everything was flavorful just not to my taste. I ordered the NY strip rare and it came out rare plus to medium rare which is fine. To me the meat quality was not Allen Brothers but neither was it outback and the steak came off a bit dry. I tend to like my rare steaks on the cool juicy side. I can take a small bit of over cooking if the flavor is there, the steak left me full but not super satisfied. The raw oyster I received were fantastic and they're were shucked very well with little to no shell fragments to have to spit out after eating them. Carrot bisque was good though had a tad to much citrus for me. My wife's bouillabaisse seafood was cooked really well nothing dry or rubbery but the rue or sauce was just a bit over powering. \n\nFood Gets a B\n\nNoise level was very uncomfortable for the reason we were there. My wife and I like to enjoy dinners where we can discuss and talk but not have to yell and strain to hear each other. I had heard from coworkers and reviews that it was loud but when I say it's loud it is loud. \n\nAtmosphere gets a D\n\nThat said if I was wanting to meet a group of friends and enjoy cocktails and appetizers and was in Buckhead Bistro Niko is your place. Next time the wife and I are back in the area we may pre game there before heading on to a spot to relax and enjoy a main course. \n\nI would try it again but I would be there for drinks and appetizers

When my cousin went to the restroom she said she was met with gnats.

Upon arrival, there was nobody around to guide you or direct you to the host for check in. It seems as people just wonder in from the street. I feel the host stand should be at the entrance for less confusion. The staff in general were not friendly. As a manager of a successful breakfast restaurant I understand your server is only as fast as the kitchen, so I always give the benefit of the doubt at first. I do feel like checking back with the customer is still better then not while they wait to long for service. We were not asked for drink refills, nor did dirty plates get cleared. A dish we ordered was less then satisfying and we were told a manager was coming to speak with us, but never did. I realized later on that my dish of pasta I asked to be boxed up had never been brought back to me. At this point I just wanted my bill & to go. I had driven by this location several times telling myself I wanna eat there one day it looks so cute. Well, i tried it & when I drive by now I think wow what a shame. I can get better service at the local Waffle House.

We keep coming back whenever we're in town. We love this restaurant. The food is outstanding and full of interesting and complex flavor combinations. The raw oysters are spectacular. The seafood is always fabulously flavored and perfectly done. Perfection in flaking every time. The service is really outstanding—very attentive but not overpowering. This time, however, our dining experience was diminished by a very noisy table near us. And the full dining room was quite noisy, something we really hadn't experienced before to this degree. But that fact will not keep us from coming back.

I said that this will not be a quiet spot. I got a withering look eye roll, and we had to go back to the hostess stand where a new ticket was printed for a new table further away from the bar.

Bistro Niko was the choice of my date, so when I did the preliminary check it sounded good and I was anticipating our dinner. I made the reservations online, but had to change the time and did so directly with the restaurant. That was an indication of the excellent service and hospitality to follow. We used the Valet parking and were seated immediately in the main section of the dining room in a semi-secluded booth. Our waiter was attentive from the outset and made our dining experience memorable. We went with one special, a steak, and the Scallops. The scallop dish was outstanding and I recommend it highly. The steak was very good, but didn't compare to the scallops. We split the beet salad which was the perfect amount, and dessert really topped off the evening. I would recommend Bistro Niko highly. The prices were fair and the food and service was terrific. My date and I shared a memorable evening that will be remembered as a very special night in our new relationship. Thanks Bistro Niko!!!

Sooooo....... I booked a table for 3 gal pals to get together as one of us is grieving the loss of her beloved husband to a tragic accident just 5 weeks ago. This was our friend's first night out and away from home. I placed this information in my open table notes saying that it was important for her to feel especially lovely and treated. Instead, it was OBVIOUS that my open table notes were read by NO ONE at Bistro Niko. We had no problem waiting at the bar in order to enjoy a beautiful table outside on the patio. However, three women attempting to receive service at the bar was nearly impossible. I finally approached the bar, made eye contact with the pretty blonde bartender, who immediately turned her back to me and ignored me for an unacceptable period. I finally elevated my voice enough and ordered a bottle of very expensive Champagne. THIS received her attention. As the bottle was delivered WITHOUT an ice bucket and flutes, I tipped the bartender 30%. Hoping this would help us with \nupcoming service. To no avail, as it took ordering appetizers before we finally received our ice bucket. Service went south from there. Our second bottle of Champagne was delivered with a bit more care however, one should not have to ask for a fork at a fine restaurant after one's entree has been delivered or wait excessive amounts of time between courses. \nOur dinner took place on a slow, Monday evening and we 3 gals present as sophisticated, fashionable, attractive, women. Sooooo.......what was the deal? Why such mediocrity in service? Is there a bias against women when it comes to good service? 'BIG MISTAKE,' as Richard Gere stated in Pretty Woman. I am a HUGE tipper and I will take my business and tips elsewhere from now on. As my sweet, grieving friend said upon leaving, 'Maybe we should have pulled the dead husband card!' I said that, 'I did!' At least we had a sick but good laugh!

No place in Atlanta hits the Bistro cuisine button as well as BN. The only thing that wasn't french was the service. Thank goodness . Eager to receive menu modifications, our waiter took them with a great attitude and got them right. \n\nA haddock special was perfectly cooked with a crispy skin and on a bed of simple 'creamed spinach.' Not, thankfully for this dish, a Chops creamed spinach, but one that worked well with the delicate haddock.\n\nNoise was and always is a problem but more than worth it to nod and smile to your table mate.
