The food was really good, everything tasted really good & fresh
The restaurant was dark, needed the phone lights to read the menu& see the food.
The photo booth was a really nice touch.

We visited this restaurant with our family hoping to experience something special and local. The food tasted really good and the atmosphere was amazing. The valet was helpful as two of our kids did not have long pants which this restaurant requires the men to wear. My only disappointment was with our server who was not very kind and certainly did not seem pleased to have us in her section.

Very good food. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars was the restaurant was so incredibly dark. I had to use my phone to see the menu and you could barely see it eat. I get that maybe celebs come in and do not want to be seen but maybe wait til after 8 to turn down the lights that low.

Very rude and they did not mention there is a dress code ANYWHERE but it happens that someone else did not follow the dress code they can stay because they paid for there special occasion! But others they can’t stay because they did not pay!

Greeted and seated immediately; always a great start for any dining experience. Started off with two signature cocktails , the “jojo” and “Nice for what“, drinks came out promptly and chilled to perfection. Second round of drinks , I ordered old fashions a martini. Our server burned my orange peel table side adding a very nice touch! For starters, our waiter recommended the calamari; it was crisp, lightly seasoned and cooked just right. Excellent! I opted for the Bolognese and my date tried the Lobster pasta. Meat sauce was rich, and tasty, her lobster pasta was superb. The portions were perfect ! Leaving just enough room for dessert. We ordered the peach crisp and waited for about 15 mins only to find out they were all out. I was looking forward to it - I’ll be back for it without a doubt! Hats off to the staff, very very attentively professional. Thanks for an amazing dining experience! Nice Guy for the win!

We felt a bit rushed. Although we appreciated the staff checking on us we felt like we couldn’t really enjoy a conversation without being interrupted and couldn’t enjoy our starters before our dinner got there.

My boyfriend and I went to The Nice Guy for my 25th birthday and it was one for the books. I really enjoyed the atmosphere. It's perfect for a couples night out, it's a super intimate place to go since it's dark and quiet. I ordered calamari which was one of the best I've had. It was perfectly fried and a bit tangy. I also ordered the nice guy burger which was amazing! For once I also got a drink - spicy sienna. I wasn't excepting it to be as spicy as it was but it was delicious. My boyfriend went with pepperoni pizza - he said it was great. I don't remember our waiters name but he did a phenomenal job with his service. We couldn't get photos in the restaurant because you're not allowed to take any which I respect.
I'll be back for sure.

Amazing service. The meat was truly perfect and the carpaccio aswell. The only thing that you could expect more out of in a place like this was the dessert. Bought icecream served on a plate did not really fit in with the rest. But all and all, a great experience and lovely food.
