Contemporary French
Bistro Niko is a nod to Paris, right in the heart of Buckhead. The modern French fare is authentic & simple, while the affordably priced wine list, exciting cocktails and extensive craft beer list ensure that everyone finds something to suit their tastes. Grand ceilings, art from Paris and a patio that overlooks Peachtree make Bistro Niko at once a destination and a neighborhood restaurant.

    Festively decorated and excellent service. I’ve dined here many times as my office used to be right next door before we relocated. Took the family here for a festive dinner before going to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. The overall experience and food were great. I did encounter a strong ammonia taste with my scallops (that’s my absolute favorite dish there that I’ve had many many times). I first thought it was just me and ate a second one and had the same experience. I’ve never had that happen with scallops or any other food for that matter and was perplexed. I googled and saw that it definitely was a thing and I should not eat them. I told the server and I could tell he was horrified. They were very apologetic and gave me the option for another attempt. Those came out and were the same way. I felt horrible when the manager came by and ask me if those were better and I had to tell her no. They again were most accommodating and offered me a choice for something else from the kitchen but, I said I was good. They did graciously remove it from the check and I did appreciate that. I’m still perplexed as to what the issue was and maybe it was just me but, never had that happen or even heard of that. I should note I never felt sick after at all. All in all I feel they did everything possible to accommodate me and I am most appreciative. I will definitely be back.

    I invited a group of 5 friends for Saturday brunch to celebrate their recent retirement. The atmosphere, food and service were fabulous. The live jazz music and festive Christmas decor transported you to a Holiday Christmas party. Half of our group ordered the mussels and the rest of us had the eggs Norwegian. Everyone raved about their dishes and the sparking rose we ordered. The wait staff was very attentive and happily took photos of our group. Highly recommend Bistro for a special meal or any celebration!

    This place is always busy, always great. It’s also always our first stop for lunch when we get into Atlanta for the weekend. I’ve never had anything I didn’t enjoy. I especially love the oysters, the soups, the flatbreads -and their “frittes” are amazing.

    We had a lovely evening at Bistro Niko this week. We were warmly welcomed at the door and led to the table we requested. Our charming server, Nicolas, was delightfully entertaining, the ambience lively, and our celebratory dinner was delicious from hors d'oeuvres to dessert. All of these things are what makes Bistro Niko consistently special.

    It was a great meal, and the service was very good as well. The only negative was that it was my wife and I's anniversary, which we noted in the reservation, and that was not commented on. Not a big thing, but a small disappointment.

    A few things you should know: we had a reservation and were waved off from open tables for 15 minutes. We sat at the bar for 15 minutes, and were seated at a table that was vacant when we arrived. We enjoyed our three-course dinner, but the timing seemed to be based on our server, not the course of our meal. Because our seating was delayed and service was based on the restaurant's capacity and not our pace, our self-parking in the (non-validated) parking structure was $20 (for just over 2 hours). Next time we will inquire about the valet parking rate......

    Came to Bistro Niko for a date night, and it was a spectacular pick! The best service I have EVER had at a restaurant. Nico (our server) was absolutely amazing. Very attentive, a great conversationalist, and an overall good time while getting everything exactly right. I ended up texting my friends in the middle of the dinner to recommend it for a nice night out. Overall, fair prices for the food, and since the experience was so great and the ambiance added to it even more, I thought it was well-worth the cost. Yummy food, cooked right, delicious drinks that were well-balanced. I had a wonderful time and will be recommending it to others for occasions taking them out and about Atlanta.

    We asked to be moved to a different table because the large group next to us was very noisy. We were moved to a different room which was empty when we sat down but filled up quickly. That room became noisy, as well, when it reached capacity, but we could hear ourselves better there than at our first table. The food was excellent, well-prepared and nicely presented. There was plenty of variety on the menu, with choices to satisfy a number of different tastes. We started with a pork belly dish and a raclette cheese dish for the table. There were three of us dining together. I had roast duck breast, my husband had halibut, which was a special for the evening, and our partner had coq au vin. All of us were very pleased with our meals. I would definitely recommend, but with a warning about the noise level.

    My best friend got engaged and we came here right after the proposal for brunch to celebrate. We had balloons for her, and were forced to put them in a closet while we ate rather than have them out at the table because it was a "fire hazard." I love this restaurant but was so disappointed in the service. We felt rushed and it seems the waiter said they might be out of several things. Not the best day for them.

    We had brunch for our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful experience. The duck confit was excellent and my husband’s trout was very good. My husband had a Bloody Mary which he enjoyed and I had one the champagne cocktails. The Christmas decorations were very pretty and service was great-fast and very friendly!! We really enjoyed ourselves-thanks for making our day special!!

    The service was great, servers were incredibly attentive. The food was a bit overpriced for the amount, the servings were standard sizes. Nothing blew us away. Most surprisingly, we found out there that parking in their attached visitor lot was not validated (even though the "fresh to order" next to it validated for that same lot). We ended up paying an additional $20/car for a little over 2 hours. I'd recommend not driving there since that is the case or searching for a better public parking garage/lot nearby or using their valet because that is validated apparently.
