We started with Bruschetta, it was awesome! Our main course was Chicken Parm and it was the best we have ever had. The Chef sat with us for a time, and also shared his Bruschetta recipe. I very much would like to thank him for that. Very friendly staff, and the price was reasonable. We will definitely come back on... More

I had the Calamari Linguine w/ a Caesar salad to start. Enjoyed both very much. The staff was very friendly and would suspect that many are family. It had that family run feel to it. All the meals at my table were well received, the mushroom and fig pizza was raved about by several. Pizza oven was busy the whole... More

Pasta was old, over cooked and tough. Steak was Beef but just barely. Wine was $8 for 3 oz. of cheap House stuff. We asked for calamari and was told that was on the long menu and not available - probably a blessing. Odd experience because the facility is large and well appointed. We were there on a Wed nite...

When we arrived the bartender asked, "Thai or Italian?" We asked, did we need to decide right then and he replied, "Yes, you kinda do." We chose Italian. We were seated and given menus. We each ordered a glass of wine...got a scant half glass for $8. A very limited menu. We inquired about calamari and the waitress said no... More

Nicolas on Main is 2 restaurants in one. They serve Italian and Thai. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted and made to feel welcome! Mike the owner and Dave the bartender made you feel like family and we left there wanting more. REasonably priced and great food. We'll be back for Thai tonight.

Huge restaurant, but takes care of you. We had a great dinner here. My wife and I split a dinner and still had more food than we could eat. Very tasty and good atmosphere.

Nicolas provides its guests with a fine dining experience while not breaking the bank. The food and service are outstanding. I enjoyed calamari with red sauce over linguini that was the best I have had in many, many years. My husband and I both have decided that when we return to Lake Placid, Nicolas will be on our restaurant list.

We came in early with a few young kids, a little baby and a ton of starving adults. We had excellent service. Warm bread, good cocktails, great wine list. The food was delicious. Chicken Parm was better than anything My husband has had in NYC. Gluten free pasta options for the Celiacs which was convenient for me. Truly a great... More

I had wanted to try Lisa G's, but wouldn't you know it they're closed on Tuesday nights. The negative reviews of the Pub & Brewery had turned me off, and I had wanted to try Smoke Signals, but group choice let us to this place adjacent to our lodging. This prior review says it all for me - Service: awesome.... More
