I LOVE THE FOOD, they have the best sushi. The owner seems nice, but appears to only mingle with certain guest.

The room is great looking. I ate the chicken teriyaki dinner, which was ordinary. Perhaps the sushi would have been a better choice. The TV screens seemed out of place in the chic decor, but---I'm not a big fan of sports bars.

Went here for a friends birthday party. The restaurant is very well put together aesthetically pleasing and has a wonderful layout. The food tasted great and the staff was very friendly and service was quick. Really enjoyed the evening there and would recommend the restaurant. It's not the cheapest place to eat but it is also not grossly overpriced and... More

I was brought here by friends on a visit to town. The crunchy roll (I believe that's what it's called) was outstanding. I loved the atmosphere and scene. Would definitely return here. It's worth it!

My husband and I have been here several times. While we enjoy the atmosphere, the sushi can be hit or miss. The first time we came it was incredibly delicious, but the following time it was not our favorite. We will try again for sure, because maybe they were just having an off night.

I've come here often over the years. Plenty of sushi and more for those who aren't so fond of sushi. Large areas and small booths along with the traditional sushi bar. The staff is friendly and often offers suggestions if you like.

I LOVE the sushi in this restaurant. The service is also very good. Always come here for lunch with colleagues and friends. Any restaurant can cook sushi BUT only a handful get actually get this right. Especially when presenting this to someone who's had the real thing in Japan.

Service ok, decent sushi ... But ear-splitting club music at 7pm was the ultimate in millennial managerial cluelessness & customers-who-want-to-enjoy-dinner insensitivity. Impossible to have any sort of dinner conversation with our friends. You know it's absurdly loud when the beer in your beer glass is vibrating. Really? If we wanted to sweat and grind, we would have gone clubbing.

I really like the way the restaurant is design it looked so nice. The sushi bar is crazy huge but than again I went on a Wednesday so they only had 2 or 3 chef for a bar I assume is built of 6 chefs. This is pretty much standard sushi not amazing but its what is expected.

Description
Nikko Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar has a high energy atmosphere with a contemporary style. We are known for inventive, excellent, award winning sushi as well as the finest modern Japanese cuisine. Nikko has the feel of a upscale New York city restaurant with the promise to be hot and sexy. We have an assortment of over 300 bottles of fine wines as well as a full service bar. We feature a large private dining room with a full projection screen for company events or any other special occasion. Joannas welcoming personality with feather boa and trademark cowboy hat with tambourine overwhelms guests with "Sushi Love" when sake bombs are requested.
