Whats not to love, food is delicious and service is always great. We celebrated 4 anniversaries, so between the 8 of us we all loved our meals.

from the moment you valet your car, you walk into a world of perfection. everyone is very cordial as you stroll to your table. the service is more than excellent and the food is exquisite. the chef makes a special dish before you start the meal and you always wish that was what you ordered.

As a fine restaurant, Nicholas delivered on all fronts. A comfortable, relaxing atmosphere, delicious food created with originality, and very attentive service made for a truly memorable evening for two. Our Captain, Marcello, a delightful, convivial Brazilian, orchestrated a wonderful experience at Nicholas, an experience worthy of the most sophisticated city, but available to all at the Jersey Shore. Who'd have thought that is possible, but it is. I had the smokey tomato soup to begin and the Halibut for my main course. The fabulous starter only raised my expectations even higher (given the lofty reviews of Nicholas), but the fish and accompanying vegetables was really as good as I've ever had anywhere. My wife equally praised her starter, a mushroom cannelloni dish and the pork belly main course. Both were truly wonderful (we eagerly exchanged tastes to share our good fortune). I'm amazed we had never visited this 17 year old restaurant previously, but we will again soon. BTW, the great wine list has both bargains and high end possibilities. This was, all in all, a great experience but certainly not for all...many today seem to want the stereotypical American bistro which this is not. While not stuffy or formal, Nicholas will prove "toned down" to some and seems to be a place reserved for special occasions. Good, let others wanting more noise and show eat elsewhere and let the good times continue to happen at Nicholas.

We celebrated Friday for our 26th anniversary. It was wonderful. A real dining experience, creative, decadent choices, excellent service, friendly, not pretentious, beautiful ambiance. Can choose regular menu or a tasting menu. Large selection of cocktails and wines to select. Nice surprise touches through dinner like champagne welcome, refreshing sorbet beginning, additional dessert, small gift home of baked pumpkin bread. Definitely a special evening. You won't be disappointed.

We have been dining at Nicholas for years and it has one of the most innovative menus anywhere. However the prices have been increasing over the years and we feel it has reached a tipping point and just isn't worth the money any longer. (to us) However, on the flip side, the restaurant was sold out and the surrounding area is very affluent so I would probably raise my prices also, if I were the Hararys. Bottom line it is still a for profit business.
