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.

Had the trout which was great, except it came out cold so had to send back. When it came back my husband had already finished his dinner.
Main restaurant very noisy but all the food was great!

I'm not sure what was going on in the kitchen on this particular visit but whatever it was, please keep it up! Everything was beyond fantastic. Even the bread was extraordinary though it's always good, and everything from there to dessert was at the same standard. Thanks for a wonderful (even if loud) evening.

Nice although it was a special birthday for me yet it was not recognized while we dined. The concierge did but no free dessert, etc. disappointing. They were also out of a major entree, European Sea Bass, at 8:00 on Friday. Nevertheless it was available in the fish soup.

So noisy in here until about 9:00.

It has excellent food and service BUT the noise was overwhelming. Unfortunately we had a very loud group a few feet away, and we could not hold a good conversation among ourselves. Even if they were not there it is very noisy; they need to do something to baffle the noise.

They overbooked for Mother's day. We arrived at 6:35 - 10 minutes early for our 6:45 dinner reservation. We were not seated until after 7 pm. A lady and her two small boys who clearly knew the staff were seated before us in the main dining room, and an elderly couple who clearly knew the staff was taken ahead of us to main dining room as well. We were then told we could sit in overflow room or we might wait another 15-20 minutes. Since we did not have a "friend" at the restaurant we sat in the overflow room for Mother's day. Not a good experience and poor display by the management on handling guests with reservations.

We enjoyed another wonderful dining experience on Mother’s Day. My only complaint was the wait time for our table - my mother who needs assistance walking and cannot stand for long periods was offered a seat to wait for what seemed a lot longer than we’ve ever experienced before. It seemed the hostesses were overwhelmed but managed to get us eventually seated. That was the only hiccup in an otherwise great meal.

We had a wonderful time with our family on Mother's Day. There were 10 of us and they sat us at two tables. I am not sure why they could not have made it one table, but we did have a wonderful time. The food was excellent. I know that Mother's Day is an extremely busy day for a restaurant, but we had excellent service and a grand experience.

Excellent for Mother's Day Brunch. We had to ask for bread twice but other than that the service was very good. I think it was probably because it was a holiday. The lunch type of meals we had for brunch was very good and a lot of food. The omelet my mom ordered was pretty basic. They could have dressed it up more for the money. Overall good experience and we would definitely come back.

I always enjoy this restaurant! Great, vibrant atmosphere and the food is always amazing. The bar is always fun and full of locals who enjoy dining at the bar and/or waiting for their table. The outdoor seating is very nice as well. One of my favorite entres is the Skate! A very yummy, buttery, flakey white fish.

My Wife and I Made A Reservation For 2 At 6:15 PM On Saturday, May 11th and Requested A Specific Booth / Table.

We Arrived @10 Minutes Early and Were Told By The Hostess That Our Requested Table Was Given To A Customer That Did Not Have A Reservation, @5 Minutes Before We Arrived!

They Sat Us At One Of The Only Available Tables / Booths, Which Was Not Comparable To The Original Request / Table Location.

This Was The 2nd Time That I Made A Reservation Through Open Table, Arrived Early and Requested This Exact Same Booth / Table. Both Times The Table Was Given To A Customer That Did Not Have A Reservation!

We Brought The Issue and Past Experience To The Manager Of Bistro Niko and Was Told That There Was Nothing He Could Do. Obviously, The Reason We Use Open Table Is For The Convenience Of The Reservation Process and Requests.

When A Customer, Without A Reservation, Is Given A Reserved Table and Better Location, Why Use Open Table?

Very Disappointing, Since The Restaurant Location Is A Good One and The Food and Table Service Are Generally Good.

My Goal Is To Tell 1,000 Potential Bistro Niko Customers Not To Book A Reservation At Bistro Niko, Since They Don't Honor Reservation Requests and The Restaurant Is Nothing Special!

We were seated at a 2 person table and had made a reservation for 3 people on Open table. So, we had to go back to the hostess stand and be re-seated? Then, we ordered a favorite item (Chicken paillard) and it was over cooked, tough and had no flavor. After being asked if we wanted to re-order and order an appetizer while we waited, the food came before the appetizer and left one appetizer and didn’t serve the other.

Great french bistro in heart of Buckhead - always great food and service. Best in ATL for good solid bistro fare. The main dining area can get a bit noisy but the "back room" is a refuge.
