Honestly every time we have tried this place, which has only been a few times since it's opening, we have been disappointed with something, the food, the service etc. This time though when we walked in there was a sign saying now they can't serve...More

Use to love going to Niko's but not anymore. Quality of food has gone down in the past year or so. Loved the Mac and cheese with rotisserie chicken but last time it tasted bland. Will not return

This visit was a dichotomy of sorts. Great atmosphere, great service but so-so food. I had the pot roast dinner which was tasty but it's as if the beef wasn't trimmed properly before cooking. It had generous pockets of fat that was more than I...More

This is the place to come when you want some comfort food. Their chicken mac n cheese is enough for three, but you won't want to share. They have a great bar area to sit in and eat also. The fireplaces outside are very inviting...More

The food was good, but not extraordinary. I think this place may be in some financial trouble, based on the lights on the sign outside being half burnt out, the missing tiles on the men's room wall. The S'more's that they offer came pre-packaged with...More

The meal started witha blank and unhelpful stare from our server when I couldn't bring up the app on my phone for a free appetizer/coupon. She just said, "Well, they are out there." No comp or faith that I had it; disappointing and bad customer...More

We were looking for a relaxing spot for dessert and coffee and some longer-term dreaming about the next decade of our already 31-year marriage. After poking my head inside a couple other nearby restaurants, this one won because it seemed a little quieter. We'll probably...More
