Nikolais takes you back to old times Russia with the decor which is mirrored and brass and very warm and old-fashioned. They are famous for clinking the silver plate warmers together in unison when revealing your courses. Try the homeade vodka and you won't be dissapointed.

My husband and I live in Charleston SC, and our wedding planner took us to Nikolai's when we were in Atlanta, and we were extremely impressed. The Cuisine is was phenomenal and the atmosphere was incredibly romantic. We have recommended Nikolai's to all of our family that lives in the Atlanta area.

Visited "The Roof" with my wife last night and was very pleased. It's a beautiful place and the view to the North is fantastic. We had the "Chefs Menu" with wine pairings. I have to say, I found the food to be a little inconsistent for the money. My first dish, a three meat filled pastries (beef, pheasant and crab) with a bernaise dipping sauce was fabulous. So so delicate and flakey! The next dish, fresh oysters prepared three ways, was just OK. The next was a spinach/crab souffle along with a risotto cake, both were just "very good", not fantastic. The main was lobster with crab ravioli and it was wonderful. The much anticipated Grand Marnier souffle was a real disappointment. It was perfectly prepared but was way too "eggy". Not sweet at all and just not very good. The last offering was a chocolate truffle (wonderful), strawberry dipped in chocolate (good) and the best almond cookie I've ever tasted! Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy in the middle. I didn't know a cookie could be so good!

So I know it may seem like I was not very happy with the food overall but as for food alone, I'm comparing this dinner to those I've had at other fine restaurants (The Dining Room, Baccanalia, Rathbuns, Food Studio, Pano's and Pauls etc.) Tob to bottom, the meal was just not as good as many I've had. Also, $510 including tip was steep by any measure. BUT, the overall experience was great. The beautiful dining room, the uniformed wait staff with their red coats and white gloves, the attentive and excellent overall service and lastly, a view that can't be beat in Atlanta dining. I would have not problem recommending Nikolas to anyone who can afford do drop half a grand on dinner. A very nice evening...

Pros: Beautiful room, ambiance and service and a simply wonderful view.

Cons: Rather spendy and some of the food this particular evening could have been better.

We dined at Nikolai's Roof a couple months ago and wasn't sure what to expect other than what we saw on the internet. The service, the food the atmosphere was so romantic. Everyone should at least try this place once. We (the ladies) were given long stem roses and the waiter gave us a bottle of peach syrup and the recipe for one of the drinks. Quite impressive. So guys, if you want to impress your lady, take her to Nikolai's Roof.

It has probably been at least ten years, or more since I've dined at Nickolai's Roof. But I had a couple of clients staying at Downtown Hotels, and due to a time restriction, we decided on Nickolai's. The cozy rooftop restaurant has been updated, and there are certainly taller buildings, but the view is still tops and relaxing. Guys grab your dinner jackets, and get ready to be treated like royalty. This place is like an old friend that you have not seen in years, and suddenly, it's like they never left. And of course we started with chilled flavored vodka's. And then that wonderful caviar selections, with all the toppings, chopped egg, capers, and sour cream. I had a Roasted Duck with Cognac Sauce, my friends had the Roasted Lamb, and a terrific Grilled Swordfish entree. And then just the best souffle anywhere, the Grand Marnier. They never take this dish off, rightly so. Yes the place is old fashioned, but how refreshing, with all the current upscale trends. If Paris decides to visit one of her family's holdings, reservations, are in order again. Five Stars! No Question! Very expensive.

Cons: Very Expensive! Company Account Level!

We took the elevator to Nikolai's Roof for drinks before our dinner at Trader Vic's. We had just been to the Sundial at the Westin Peachtree, but the service and atmosphere at Nikolai's Roof was FAR better! And, the view is not as tall, but just as gorgeous!

We had the nicest server, a young man from the Netherlands. He was prompt, courteous, and very sweet.
Save time and come here for drinks, and avoid the Sundial!

Also, Trader Vics was fantastic!

It wasn't busy the night that we dined, and seemed fully staffed, so I was slightly aware of people watching us. However, that feeling was swept away with the best service I've had. Detailed menu, no rush, no push for alcohol

As each course was presented (beautifully) the server gave a detailed explanation of each dish. Our servers waited patiently between each course, removed our plates when it was clear we were both done. No crowded tables. No rush.

The only thing that bothered me, not restaurant's fault, was a woman seated behind me. She kept blowing her nose loudly into her napkin. It ruined the romance slightly to hear sinus honks every few minutes.

Other than that, It was a relaxing and wonderfully peaceful dining experience.
Upscale fine dining without snob pretense.

Our bill $400 including tip - well worth it.

Highly reccommended for romantic dining or business

We were very disappointed in the service. Our waiter kept insisting that we order from the chef's recommendation but we did not want to order a 6 course meal. He seemed irritated that we wanted to see at least see a menu. We each ordered 3 courses and he insisted that we order our dessert selection immediately. The food was very good and the presentation was very nice but for the price we paid, our service should have been better. To make matters worse, they messed up the bill and after we paid it, they came back and said they accidentally left out some of the wine and needed to rerun our credit card again. We won't be back.

Very nice dinner. Great wine list, though a bit pricey (a $150 bottle of champagne was $250), but the food definitely was worth it, as was the service, and atmosphere.

My husband and I have been to Nikolai's twice and will certainly go back there again. The food was excellent and the service was great.

I enjoyed the intermezzos of cheese plates and sorbets and fine chocolate.

Well worth the money. We tried Seegers as well and Nikolai's was by far a lot better!

For 4 hours, I felt like a Queen....not someone's mother or wife.
The food, the presentation and the service was heavenly....I highly recommend the Chef's selections coupled with the recommended wines.

Do not listen to anyone who rates this restaurant lower than a 9. Nikolai's roof is by far the best restaurant I have eaten at in Atlanta, probably the top 5 ever... including restaurants in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Seattle. I have been twice and it demonstrates exceptional quality in food, service, and ambiance. You will not be disappointed. However, for exceptional service comes exceptional cost. Be prepared to enjoy a night of fine dining. Reservations and Coat required.

The finest food preparations and presentaions found anywhere with a view to match. Large and diverse wine list with top notch sommelier. The flavored vodkas set the stage and Chef Klapdhor does the rest. A must.

Nikolai's Roof is entirely the most desirable restaurant in Atlanta. With its beautiful skyline view, and with its most incredible and always changing menu, I give this restaurant from a rating of 1 - 10 a powerful 15.
