First the bad. Amazing that their website had completely different and lower prices from the menu. Sad the manager simply said too bad and sorry. Feel ripped off. The other issues were mixed grill skewers overdone and tasteless with sauces that tasted like ppured from a bottle. Also get a table in the back. Restaurant tends to be very noisy.... More

My husband and I celebrated his birthday by driving to Cottonwood and enjoyed main street events and art walk, and had a great meal at Nic's. The Haunted Group really know how to serve up fabulous food and wonderful service. AND they can decorate. He had a steak and I had a fish dish and ridiculously good salad. This place... More

Fantastic from the the food to the service. I believe our server was Danielle she made the experience amazing. My daughter devoured the ribs and my steak was cooked to perfection. Ed is an amazing chef. Never dissatisfied at this restaurant. The owner sure knows what he's doing and appreciates his workers and guests.

Nic's is an old fashioned restaurant, with paneled walls, a beautiful bar, and very good food. Salad or soup is included in the price of a meal. The wines are inexpensive by the bottle, with a decent selection. Italian food, steaks, and seafood are the specialties. Service is quite good. On weekends arrive early (before 6 pm) or plan on...

If you go, ask for Danielle's section, she is customer focused and could probably teach a class on food service hospitality. Her service was pleasant, prompt, attentive and nowhere near pretentious or contrived. The bread was fresh and the dipping oil was the best. The 'dinner' salad could have been an entree, especially with the balsamic vinagrette. If you get... More

Nic's in Cottonwood is an excellent place for dinner if you are in the Cornville /Cottonwood area. If there on a Sunday evening before 7pm be prepared to wait for a table. But the food and service are well worth your time. The menu is exactly what you would expect for an Italian Restaurant. The price is lower than you... More

Over the years, Nic's has been a special occasion spot for our family. We have been there more over the past year than ever before and are quite fond of our favorite server. The staff is helpful and courteous about questions and dietary restrictions. On the rare occasion when the kitchen is a little slow or there is a mistake,... More

We had dinner here, husband had a steak and I had lobster ravioli.He enjoyed his steak but didn't think it was great, I did not care for the ravioli at all as a matter of fact i thought the taste was off. I might would go here again and order something more generic. Good service.

AT first we were thinking this was not a good option. Service for water and bread was very slow..Hubby started getting mad..but then the waitress arrived, and we ordered the Tuesday special..2 filets with salad and a veggus for 29...It was amazing. The martini was yummy and we will go back. Best food I've had in a while
