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.

Food has improved since the last visit which means we will be returning. The wait staff was a little slow as was the kitchen, but considering that the place was full, it was possible that the kitchen was running a bit behind.

The food was great and the service was very good as well. The restaurant is a bit dusty and they need to do a better job with cleaning the restaurant. Around the bar and dining area the bottles of wine are very dusty and the bottles that stacked in the bar area are very dusty as well. This can be harmful to anyone with allergies. Other than that, my family and I had a good experience.

We always enjoy Bistro Niko for the lovely decor of the bistro and the ambience. However this time we had a server that not engaged in serving and basically ignoring us (why I don't know). One of the managers made it right for us but this is not the first time. I think the managers need to give their wait staff instructions on how to be engaged with customers.

too many small things that totally did not represent the Buckhead Restuarant Group. I was embarrassed at the treatment & level of services received. I was with our CEO - so I did not want to make an issue. I have had great service always at BRG’s places - so I guess it was just a “Bad” day for them.

Pleasant atmosphere but very noisy. Waited almost 30 minutes for cocktails. We were then told bourbon that was ordered was unavailable. Martini ordered with a twist was served with olives. Ask that appetizer be served first followed by salad and main course. However appetizers and salad arrived at same time. We sent salad back as we specifically asked for dressing on the side. We are not use to having to explain that 3 courses mean 3 courses! Inspite of these concerns we enjoyed ourselves.

It was a very noisy evening. Several large groups we very loud and appeared to be business related. The duck was not crispy on the outside like a normal French style would be. We also ordered a filet medium well and it was still very red throughout the center. The water kept trying to fill our glasses from the bottle of wine we ordered and it appeared he wanted to empty it quickly. This to was not how wine should be poured in a fine restaurant.

My husband and I went to Bistro Niko for the first time. We had been noticing the venue every time we went to Lenox Mall. We had our anniversary meal there and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am big on atmosphere. This place delivers that. We started with a drink at the beautiful bar. We both ordered a fish dish - mine was sea bass and I think my husband had trout. Both delicious. Only one objection. There seemed to be way too much oil in the preparation of the dishes. The fresh spinach under my fish was soaked in the oil. That won't keep us from going back, though. It is an awesome atmosphere. The truffle/bean soup was wonderful. Next time we'll sample something else on the menu. :-)
