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.

We shared a delightful late lunch with shared appetizers. Service was very good, food was too. Live music was nice, not too loud. Overall, a very nice experience.

The food was excellent! The host service was great. The waiter was missing at times, which causes the pacing of the meal to be off. Almost finished appetizers before meal order was taken.

We visit Bistro Niko a couple times a year. This time was a Massive Miss on service and food quality. A couple people ordered burgers and they were absolutely charred and the server never came back to check. They ate half their burgers and we told the waiter when the my finally returned and the response was a shoulder shrug, an insincere apology, and no offer to remake the burgers or ever a bill credit. Another thing that didn’t sit well with us: when we sat down the server asked if we would like “water and bread” and we said yes to this. At the end of the meal the check had a $14 charge for the bread. When I asked about the $14 charge the server told me that we said that we wanted the bread when we first sat down....that’s some garbage right there! I don’t expect I’ll be back to Bistro Niko after this last visit.

Took a friend out for Mother's day since her kids were out and about someplace special. I was looking for a nice but casual place to have brunch with a nice patio to dine and see the city in motion. Great food and ambiance along with the jazz trio playing for the afternoon. It was a great afternoon out and highly suggest the omelets there. Wait staff very attentive but not cowering over us while eating. Will definitely visit again the next time I'm in the City for dining.

While we would have preferred to be seating In the main room, the ambiance was nice where we were. It just seemed odd that the restaurant would not fill the main room first before seating people in the room off to the side. Delicious food.

Continues to delight!
My sister and I eat at Bistro Niko about once a year when we are together in Atlanta (neither of us lives there). The food is consistently excellent, service professional and knowledgeable, and we never feel rushed. It can be on the pricey side, depending on what you order, but high quality cuisine so good value for the price. Oysters are a must. Some basic french cuisine options, but do consider whatever specials the server suggests. Seafood particularly good. There is outside seating as well as inside. It can get a bit boisterous, but after happy hour dies down it's quieter. I suspect parking could be challenging but it is just a block or so from the intersection of Peachtree and Piedmont, and so walkable from all major Buckhead hotels as well as the Buckhead Marta station.

The restaurant was ill-prepared for a large group that was so loud it ruined the experience for everyone around them. Many people tried to move tables; some were successful, while others were stuck. Not once did anyone from management even speak to the group. Sadly my children were better behaved. Our server apologized, but frankly he seemed more worried that his tips from the section meant that it wasn't worth showing up.

Clearly, the restaurant is more interested in large groups than regular tables. That is fine... we will make sure to forward the message. If you are booking with OpenTable, your group is too small for them to care. Maybe you will get lucky and have a terrible meal with some free deserts for your trouble.

Alyssa ( I hope I spelled that right ) was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and remembered us from being there a year ago. Very impressive. Her Angles Envy Rye manhattan is one of the best cocktails I've had in a very long time. Food as usual was exeptional.

Was recommended by a friend from his experience years ago. Either my friend has rose colored glasses or this place really is a low rate French knock off. Food is ok but none of the dishes were memorable. Service is super fast. Ok if you don't want to savor your food or just want the date to be over with but otherwise it's like a McDonald's. There is no ambiance to speak of as the room set up amplifies the cackling groups that made up much of the clientele. The only reason for this place to remain on anyone's list is for the endless singles looking for a hookup that make up the other half of the clientele. If you're a mature adult or happily coupled your better off going to eat at your favorite chain than wasting your money and an hour here.

The restaurant is located in a convenient spot and the French theme is interesting. Menu needs updating and the food slightly above average. Service is poor. Not worth the price.

We were four diners at a birthday dinner. The food was very good and the waiter was pleasant. The birthday dessert was a nice touch.
BUT bringing out the main courses when not all of us had finished our appetizers is an a bad mistake.
