The food was good, soft and tender beef. The antipasti was good, but too much salad for my linking, when ordering antipasti i prefer to get a variety of meat and cheese, nonetheless the taste was great

Absolutely everything was superb! Right from the bruschetta to the salads and on to the main courses we were all wowed by the food and service. Barely had room for desserts but were glad we persevered and ordered them anyway as they were all exceptional as well.

Nice atmosphere. Menu was smaller than I'd hoped, all a la carte. Food was great quality and a decent quantity for the price.

We were rather late going to Niko's - they close at 9 p.m. But the staff was really gracious, and accommodating. I jad the spaghetti arabiatta and it was absolutely delicious. My husband wanted to have his pasta minus the bacon. The waitress advised that it would change the flavors but she would donher best - he loved it. They... More

We had a family dinner here, looking forward to it based on the great reviews. The food is NOT very good. The cod dinner is served in pool of oil, their special for the night - beef medallion - was so tough even the steak knife had difficulty. Very over priced for food that just isn't very good.

My fiance and I found this place online and decided to check it out. We booked through open table and had no problems. We arrived as they were opening for dinner and was greated by the service staff. Nikos is a small business but definitely worth a visit if you like Italian. Both of us had wine, salad, pasta, dessert... More

We had an early dinner at Nikos recently to take in a production at the Jubilee....after a bit of a misunderstanding over tables we were seated and ordered drinks and calamari to start - our server's recommendation/suggestion did not disappoint - the calamari was awesome - tender, not breaded, with just enough heat! Delicious. I had two appetizers for dinner... More

Come here often and am always impressed with the personal touch Niko and his staff add to the experience. Their enthusiastic and welcoming personalities combined with delicious Mediterranean cuisine are a great mix. Our favourites dishes include the calamari, vodka con penne (with sausage) and the chocolate mousse. They have also been great with catering to gluten free diets on... More

I love good food & became accustomed to eating out at several good restaurants. When we were invited to a private function at Nikos a couple of years ago, I had no idea of the amazing food experience I was about to have. We've been several times since because it is now our favorite restaurant! The calamari is a must... More

We recently went to Nikos for dinner during our visit to Calgary. The true feeling of a good restaurant is when you see the owner being active with their guests all the while in his chef uniform going in the back cooking the food. A few times he even came by to make sure everything was okay and he even... More
