Despite poor odds on a Saturday night, we walked into Nick's and luckily got a table right away. Good, fresh salads followed by amazing duck confit and fish dishes. We would go back here in a heartbeat, maybe with a reservation next time.

Delicious food and excellent service. Love dining here. They are closed on Sundays, so unfortunately you can never go there for Mother’s Day! I highly recommend this restaurant!

We were taken there by a local and it was the only place he considered taking us. That speaks volumes to us. Known for the abalone and seafood, we had lamb chops which were superb. Great wine list. Friendly and efficient service. There is much...More
