I've never eaten here, but their vodka bar is super fun - and educational! I really never knew how many different types of vodka there are or how different they taste. This is a really fun place to go with friends.

Nic is MY SPOT... My home away from home on nights when the last thing I wanted to do was be at home. The atmosphere of the place is like a lively, vibrant and very cool without the pretense or the attitude that you might expect given the location. It's the closest thing to a Cheers bar experience that I've ever had... Happy hour is simply a must!

Pros: Best martinis & bar food in BH

Cons: Can't think of any...

Went there with a bunch of friends one day after work. Really fun atmosphere, and after a few drinks Nic took us back to the fridge. That of course got lots of laughs and actually quite a memorable experience. We put on furs, which to be honest i don't normally do so that by itself was an experience, and then had some tastings back there. Its sets the right mood, and the appetizers we've had tasted even better afterwords. all in all, a great place to go with friends and/or co-workers.

This is especially a great place for happy hour and dinner with friends. I have been here several times and have always had a fantastic experience. Nic (the owner...I forget his actual name) is totally sweet and each server I've had is well-trained in superior service. The food is so, so good. Everything is tastefully done. Great wine list and love the drinks. Also, I LOVE the ladies room!! Highly recommended.

Pros: Food, drinks, atmosphere, SERVICE!

Cons: Really, no cons. Great job, Nic's!...-Maybe the music can be a little loud for some (mostly in the bar)

I went to Nic's this week for the first time and was very pleasantly surprised. I was warmly greeted at the door by Nic's son and shown to my table. We had great cocktails, a good bottle of wine and a decent price. Great appetizers and the Monday fixe price dinner. Nic also came by to check on how we were doing. It is a nice place with a vibrant chic but unpretentious crowd. It is a new favorite.

Cons: Only if you don't like a "buzz" of noise

I visited Nic?s Beverly Hills this past Friday night with a group of 9 friends. When I arrived I gave the host the name of my party and he promptly escorted me over to our table. The restaurant was upscale, romantic, & trendy but not at all pretentious like I thought it might be because of the location. We ordered drinks and appetizers. The drinks were really good - you want to try a Triple X Martini ? I promise you won?t be disappointed The service was friendly and prompt. After about 45 minutes or so, our waitress let us know that the Vodbox was ready for us (a must-try!) After being provided with faux fur coats & hats, we were ushered into the 28 degree freezer room where all of their top-shelf Vodka?s are stored. Our hostess gave us a thorough overview of their Vodka?s and then we got to sample a few shots. .We were in there for about 20 minutes or so before returning to the main dining room and bar area. Around 9:30 or so, they brought in an awesome live band which added even more great energy to the place. The owner Nic could be seen greeting and mingling with the customers all evening and he even came over to take a couple pictures with our group ? really cool guy.
All in all, we had a great time, I will definitely be returning with another group of friends soon!

Note: It got pretty crowded between 9 & 10 so reservations are suggested.
*Also, gratuity is automatically added to the bill for parties of 8 or more so to avoid double-tipping, review your itemized receipt carefully.

I went here on a weekday during happy hour for a business meeting. I'm in my twenties. My boss is in his forties. Our business partners are in their fifties. We ALL had a great time. The drinks tasted great and the atmosphere was cool and relaxing. We didn't get a chance to go into the vod box, but i'm making it my priority next time around.

Nic's has been a personal favorite of mine for years...im finally writting a review. its the kind of place you go when you want the warm fuzzies of a neighborhood bar with the quality and atmosphere of a BH hot spot. Ive tried a lot of the menu items (salmon on waldorf - amazing, filet w/blueberries - better than you can imagine) but ive been going for the specials the last few times and those are really stealing the show. for the first timers try going for happy hour where the price is right and you can try a bunch of appetizers. and dont forget to get loosey goosey in their vodka freezer - the best way to freeze off a crazy day at work!

Let me start off by saying the concept of Nics is very cool, no pun intended. They have a "boxed" room with the temperature set to around 29 degrees. You have to put on a fur coat to go in the room and take shots of vodka! Very Cool. We had a party of 5 so we were seated fairly quickly. The food was good and the assortment of martini's were plentiful and original. We ordered enough appetizers to feed five people, but the tab was about $150.00!

Went to Nic's for my birthday recently...had a reservation for 16 and had 12 for dinner - they tried to charge us for 16 saying it was in some sort of contract I never saw/signed. Then they were rather mysterious about whether or not a tip was included in the total price. Needless to say it was supposed to be a fun and classy evening, but turned mortifying when my guests were nearly forced to overpay for their portions on a pre-fixe menu. To make it worse the service was awful (VERY slow with a VERY snotty waitress) and they refused bar service (no bar waitresses either ) at midnight, so we had to get up and get our own drinks from ONE veyr overwhelmed bartender (who had no clean glasses btw). The one redeeming quality was that the food was pretty good. I would NOT recommend this place for larger groups at all!

This place rips people off by adding a service charge to your bill, and then presenting you with a credit card bill that has the total and a blank line for a tip- but it doesn't say that 20% has already been added. Sneaky. I have no respect for a place that is so high priced and then tries to rip you off at the same time. weak.

I had one of the best dining experiences in my life at Nic's Restaurant this last Friday night. The food is amazing, the martinis... amazing, & the staff...well extremely amazing. I celebrated my 30th birthday here & it was such a wonderful experience. Major kudos go to Mitch Hunter & Brandon who welcomed my whole party of 15 through the bar and into our dining table. The staff from our food servers, bussers to the bartenders were all extremely helpful & nice. My whole party left on such a high that night, & that high lingered on to the whole weekend! So let me tell you about the food. I've traveled throughout the world, & have eaten at 90% of all the restaurants in LA, & Nic's is by far one of the best restaurants I have eaten at. For the price & value, I rate it higher than Asia De Cuba & The Ivy. The interior design is gorgeous, a great mix of LA & New York influences. The food is delicious. If you are a fan of gnocchi, & even if you aren't, the gnocchi here is tasty. Every person at the table had a bite of one, & all their frowns were turned up side down. Nic's is know for their signature oysters which are cooked & served with spinach, walnuts, garlic, they are to die for! That night I had the peppered and grilled organic salmon, which was cooked to perfection. It was served with a mango & spring onion which was delicious. The seared filet mignon served with blueberries just melted in your mouth. The service was great, one of the best staffs ever, nice, not one bit of attitude and very accomodating! I had to look around a make sure...am I really in Beverly Hills? I didn't see one person there with out a smile. I was surprised to see all our entrees out at the same time, all hot, & all consistent and tasty. One thing I really love about this place is the creativity. Finally an LA restaurant that did it right, this place has the cojones & own up to their creativity. For example their martinis are not your usual, try the "Where's my Effen martini!"

I had a friend in town who was staying at the Regent Beverly Wilshire. I decided to make an 830 reservation at Nics. We got there at 815pm(there was a weird smell when entering) and the host said that we were a little early...I said we would be at the bar. My friend and I sat at the bar and didn't even get an acknowledgement from the bartender for 15 or so minutes...the bar wasn't even that crowded. 945 came around and still no word from the host so I asked him what was happening. It seemed like he forgot we were even there and he went in the back to see what was happening. He told us we could sit in the lounge and the crappiest table in the joint. We said we can wait. He came back and said it would be 10 minutes then came back and said 20 minutes because even though the people at our table were finished eating they weren't getting up(that is when you ask them if you can buy them a drink at the bar because you really need a table). Anyway we were annoyed so I called Ebaldi right down the street and they took us immediately and it was one of the best meals I have ever had in B.H. So I say thank you Nics for turning me onto a great restaurant down the street from yours!

I have tried Nic's before, in the past & it was a nice experience. But something has changed. There's more life, more energy. We had dinner last Friday evening. I brought my fiance for the first time. From the moment we walked in, to the moment we left we felt very welcome and wanted. Which is rare in LA, especially Beverly Hills! For food we had the duck, which was recommended by our waitress, and the filet. We also had one too many martinis, but they were so good! I will be passing on the word and telling all of my friends to go! Our waitress was so nice and it wasn't the "fake" nice you can get at places like this! And the Maitre'd, the host, even our other server kept coming over and checking on us! Like I said, an overall Wonderful experience! Congrats to you for having such a great place!!! We'll be back!

i needed a really unique place to celebrate my boyfriend's work promotion but we were going out witth co-workers that i really didnt know. its so hard finding a great place that everyone is going to like and feel comfortable with, but Nics nailed it! i've been there before but no one else in the group had been there for dinner. The burger with the gooda cheese made the girls jealous, i was a little more daring and tried the duck w/pomegranite, ok WOW, please someone else needs to try this and share in my happy moment. we tried a bunch of the apps for the table, all really good but if its your first time in go for the steak skewers, total crowd pleaser. and you know, beyond all the food, the staff is just as much a part of the scene. everyone is "fabulous", in a good way, and very sweet. they helped warm up the group and our waitress was the one who got me to try the duck. :o) Oh oh, and DONT leave without desert. even if you have to take it to go, the waitress told us they are homemade, the lemon situation is freaking amazing. sweeet.

long story short, go for they hype about the vodka locker, stay for the duck. cheers!

This place is a true find in Los Angeles-especially in Beverly Hills! We were treated so warmly by the staff- from the guy at front door to Monike in the vodbox-this is a special place. Food was really delicous-not too saucy cooked perfectly. The menu is a perfect blend of classic American foods and ethnic twists. Martinis' rock-love the what a pear. Going to the vodbox was so much fun- had out of town guests and this took the night over the top.WHAT A BLAST we felt like royalty even though Ashton Kutcher and Demi were in the room too we got as much attention by our knowldgeable waitress. the scene is a mix of going to a friends for dinner with chic sophistication it's both warmth with cool/hipness. Definately going back to have my upcoming birthday there!!!

This is one of the worst dining experiences in my life. Service was horrible. Their waitstaff is completely pretentious and tried to make us order certain things we didn't like. The waitstaff wasn't well informed about the menu and was inattentive. They seemed to be unconcerned with service there. I saw our waittress standing around talking to someone else when I had asked for something. I had to ask a passing bus boy to help me out. Their waitstaff was just incredibly snobbish. When the chicken came undercooked, I asked to take it back and was met with some fierce opposition by our waitress. That, is the sign of terrible service. She didn't apologize for the fact that it was undercooked, but rather gave a look of annoyance.

The atmosphere is WAY too loud for a good, respectable fine dining restaurant. The restaurant tries to be a bar/happy hour and a fine dining establishment at the same time. It's terrible. The restaurant is very small, so the sound from the bar area travels very easily to the dining room. I had to shout to my boyfriend over dinner just to be heard. NOT romantic at all.

The food wasn't very good either. It's not bad, but for those prices, I'd expect more than an undercooked piece of chicken rubbed with salt and pepper. My boyfriend got the steak and it wasn't much better than what you could make at home. It's just grilled and thrown in an oven.

I've also heard that they refused to pay people in the kitchen as well. I heard that a chef worked there for 2 months and wasn't paid. She said that the secret sauce that they have is just rosemary, thyme, sage, parsley, garlic and olive oil. They throw that on everything with some salt and pepper. I DO NOT support an establishment with terrible morals. What kind of an establishment doesn't pay someone for work done?

Support other restaurants with higher moral standards - ones who pay their employees!!

Having lived in Las Vegas for numerous years I have been lucky enough to have truly experienced good food and cool atmospheres. I also have enjoyed a great martini or two before having dinner. Nic's has created a vibe that my wife and I have never encountered. They have combined a chic cool lounge with unreal food. I had the Filet and my wife had the nightly fish special. I was unsure about ordering the Filet since it was pan seared not grilled and came with a Blueberry reduction. I was completely surprised on how well the flavors meshed. My wifes seabass special was light and not saturated with butter and oils like many of other fish dishes that we had shared together. T

Having lived in Las Vegas for numerous years I have been lucky enough to have truly experienced good food and cool atmospheres. I also have enjoyed a great martini or two before having dinner. Nic's has created a vibe that my wife and I have never encountered. They have combined a chic cool lounge with unreal food. I had the Filet and my wife had the nightly fish special. I was unsure about ordering the Filet since it was pan seared not grilled and came with a Blueberry reduction. I was completely surprised on how well the flavors meshed. My wifes seabass special was light and not saturated with butter and oils like many of other fish dishes that we had shared together. T

The service here is HORRIBLE. Either the wait staff at Nic's don't like people of color or they're just too good to greet you (we were seated by the host, who was really nice, but the waitress didn't arrive for a good 15 minutes, and no, it wasn't busy), give you a menu (that took another 15 minutes) or take your order (another 25 minutes). Oh. And we had to toss our own salad (they present the salad by separating all the different parts of the salad into different piles, so that the salad tosser can toss it for you). The salad tosser came 45 minutes after we got the dish. And this was on a wednesday night for a party of 2.

If you're looking for good food, you can get the same quality for half the price elsewhere. For the price you pay here, you're better off going to Boa, Mastro's, Koi or the Bridge, etc.

So don't go to Nic's to eat. Just go for the drinks (because their martinis are great, and they're actually quick at giving you your drinks).

Nic's was so fun. We had a great time. The vodka bar was really fun, and it was cool to learn about different vodka's. I was the designated driver so I didnt even drink but I had such a good time. The food was awesome too. The artichoke with the butter miso sauce is mouth watering. My husband loved the oysters on the half shell.(the best he has ever had) The service was great. And the best part was the cool band they had. We were seated right behind them and we thought it was going to be way too loud and we werent going to be able to hear each other but they were so relaxing and entertaining we LOVED them. There were six of us and we bought 3 of their cds. I highly recommend Nics and we cant wait to go back!!!

It's been a while since I've come to Nic's, but I was pleasantly surprised that it has retained its cozy, friendly ambience, embraced by good music. This time I was just here for happy hour, and the menu was quite reasonable with many selections (chicken quesadilla, fries, steak skewers, chicken skewers, etc - each just $5 MF, 5pm - 7pm). They also had an icebox room for vodka tastings - we didn't want to brave the cold this time, but will probably check it out in the near future. My favorite thing here is still the oysters - yum!

Great atmosphere. Great people watching, but martinis are $12 each and tast like fruit juice. No alcohol in mine this evening. You get a 3-ounce gulp of sugar and before you know it, the tab is $100. I think the drinks could be meatier for that price. Otherwise, go to Trader Joe's and grab some fruit juice and vodka and enjoy your little martini quenchers at home.

Just had my B-day party @ Nic's and everyone had a really really nice time...some perhaps too good a time. The vodka room was great for the out of towners...blew them away. If you are looking for upscale quality with familiar and genuine service this place has it. It was just refreshing to have everything taken care so i could just kick back and enjoy my drinks!! bottoms up folks...we will be back!! :o) - jackie

I have known Larry Nicola since he opened LA Nicola in Silver Lake. I was one of his very first customers and all through the 26 years I have been a fan of his restaurants; he has never disappointed me. And I hope to remain a patron for at least another 26 years. Great food, great ambiance and great service form the first gentleman of great restaurant owners.

Nic's has always been one of the few places in LA where everyone relaxes and enjoys each other's company. I have met so many new, nice people at happy hour here, and we tend to see a lot of familiar faces every time we go in. Apparently, eveyone returns often. Although we usually go in for happy hour, I have had dinner several times and it has always been fantastic. Go. Have fun.

I have always been a skeptic about pretentious restaurants in LA. And when I read review like that, I still have an open mind and believe the better reviews are more often true. I have been proven wrong for the first time. My boyfriend and I went to Nics on a Saturday at around 6p.m. Was seated promptly in the Lounge but the menu was not offered to us until about 10 minutes later. We were not offered the Specials which a party sat next of us (who were brought in by the Restaurant Manager, was friendly greeted and served with a tremendous amount of plastic surgery filled smiles) that was nonexistent with my party. Water was not offered not brought to our table until about 20 minutes later, not until we had asked the bus boy who took away our first appetizer. The waitress then came back and pretended that it was someone else's fault that didn't bring our water. She returned to her chat zone and 10 minutes later, the water came. Those among others were the minimal amount of bad things that can be captured with words.

My boyfriend and I didn't bother order any dinner entrees as we were disgusted by the attitude and fake smiles of the restaurant. The appetizers we had, Nic's Famous Oysters and Beef Skewers were decent but not enough to compensate for the lack of services a so-call-finer-dining-restaurant- that-charges $12/martini has to offer.

Never had I left a restaurant feeling so disappointed and disgusted.

So in a nutshell, most horrible services, most obnoxious waiter & waitress and most unpleasant dining experiences award to Nics.

Went on April 29, 2006 to the martini lounge. Have not had food, drinks only.
Martinis are above average, but they are not anything spectacular. Ambiance is nice (modern), but again it is nothing special. Esentially this place is a bit above average for quality and martinis look to be 3oz and cost $12-$14.

Well we got the babysitter and dressed it up and the wife and I move on to BH.
Nics has a great Vibe and friendly staff.

Very busy that must be due to the recent make over.

We had a great table in the dining area and the set menu was delightful. Including the Kumomoto oysters to get the night started early if you know what I mean.

Being adventurous my wife and I tried the Forbidden Feijoa - had trouble saying the fee joe A. But after 4 and a taxi home to put the Kumomoto oysters to good use we both must say cheers to nics and that amazing cocktail forbidden fee joe a from 42below. I need to know where to get it so I can be forbidden again.

So I decided to go and check out this place after work and see what all of the hype was about. It totally lived up to it's reputation. It has a wall of vodka lining the back... ones from all over the world.

After sampling a bunch of the drinks I decided that this New Zealand vodka (I think it's called 42 Below) is the best. The bartender explained that the kiwis have the purest spring water in the world. I guess the hobbits over there care about water quality or something.

Anyways, it is a perfect place to grab a cutting edge martini. I dare you to go and not order the Forbidden Fejoa.

Had the monkfish and tried the salmon. Both had very delicate, delicious flavors. Fun atmosphere; service a bit on the slow side but ok for an enjoyable dinner. Thought the chocolate cake would come out warm (we waited 20 mins for it), but it didn't. Overall a great dinner!

My friends and I decided to check this place out after seeing in a "CozmoCard" brochure we received at a fundraiser...The ad promised 15% off. The waiter got our drink orders wrong and the service horrible. We complained to someone (the manager?) who came to our table to ask how it was going, who apologized and offered to bring us some drinks. When we later got the bill, we saw that we were charged for the drinks he brought us! Not only that, they refused to honor the 15% discount!! Definitely will not go back there or recommend it to anyone!

We were in town for the weekend, and we had read about Nic's on Citysearch. The restaurant was close to where we were meeting friends for dinner. We were there early on a Friday evening, and had drinks and an appetizer.

The crowd and atmosphere were great, as were the drinks and food. The location is good, and it was a nice experience. There was a nice buzz, but the music and noise weren't overpowering; most bars are too loud.

First, the manager Brandon is super cool! He was so helpful in planning a surprise party for my husband. We all had a wonderful time. The food is great, expensive but worth it. Go there if you want to wine and dine a group of friends in an upscale but fun atmosphere and intimate setting. The live music is great on Fridays because it is Jazz/blues and then Saturdays a live DJ spinning records. I think the service is slow to give people more time to talk...but they could speed it up a notch.

This place has a smell like a clorine - though I was in a swimming pool. The waiter did not have a wine with a cork in it - said "it's the way of the future for wines" $68.00 for a bad bottle. Food well below average - ambience poor. I would say go only for a martini.
At least you are sure that the vodka bottle is ok with a screw off top. Buyer beware.

Nics was a disappointment. I've been to the restaurant on three separate occasions, on each time the experience has been exceedingly worse.

Tonight I had the filet, which was very fatty. My after-dinner coffee was burnt and stale, and the chocolate dessert was nothing to write home about! I've never had a bad chocolate dessert until this evening.

There are too many good restaurants in Beverly Hills to give Nics another chance. Learn from my mistakes, go somewhere else.

This place is a great combo of neighborhood vibe meets celebrity's out for a night on the town from the moment you walk in the door everyone is treated like a celb-the host is young but very gracious. You'd think in BH you're gonna find people with attitude-not here-everyone is friendl, entertaining and knowledgeable. We went into their Giant Freezer called a VODBOX-it's a place for small groups to go in and tast vodka from strange places. We put on leopard coats and hats since it's freezing in the room. what a blast took lots of pictures tasted 2 different vodkas and visited with the ambassador of vodka Jon-he had his own giant furry Russian headpiece! We had the gnocci for appetizers-best I ever had. I'm going to come back for my birthday-it's a total blast.

Nic's is truly amoung the most fabulous of places that i have ever been to. The bar is excellent with more martini's than i've ever seen before.The food, drinks, and ambiance are worth every cent that i spent there . I am french and sometimes my accent gets in my way, Nic's even had a (quite sexy) bartender there that spoke my language.
