I want say first, the service was excellent. The hostess was able to accommodate my fiancé and me a table near the window for a beautiful view of the city. Unfortunately, no fault of the restaurant, our table was next to a party of six. One lady of the party was very loud, not obnoxious, in discussing her work experience to her group. This made it very difficult for my fiancé and me to hear each other in our own conversation and enjoy a quite dinner. My fiancé loved the sorbet before the main course was served. She wished they served more. I feel this is the only item we ate that "wowd" us. For the most part, the food was good, not great. It was a little salty for my taste. In my opinion, the portion sizes were small for the price. Diver Scallop: one 1 1/2" diameter $14. My fiancé could barely taste the dressing on her Heart of of Romaine salad for $13. In words a plate of Romaine lettuce, a tomato, and a crouton for $13. We both had the Tenderloin ($36). Again, salty for our tastes. Not worth $36 for the taste and size of cut. If you are looking for great service and an excellent view, you could consider this restaurant. For the whole package, I could not recommend this restaurant for the cost, small portions and average tasting food.
Every restaurant has a level they try to cook at, and they either succeed or they do not. Nikolais tries to cook at a very high level, but ultimately does not succeed. Their trademark piroshki are good, but nothing to swoon about. I had the garden salad as a starter, which (apart from the goat cheese) was nothing of the ordinary, herb-crusted rack of lamb with too much mustard, and crème renversée. The orange sorbet with cinnamon vodka was a nice touch. As for wine, the Cabernet-Sauvignon recommended by the sommelier ultimately proved to be too bland for the lamb, and I had to switch to a Malbec. The food itself does not justify the 150+$ tab you will be walking out with; it is up to you whether the ambiance (faux russian), the view (on top of the Hilton, with a view over downtown Atlanta) and the sommelier make up for the mediocre food.
I enjoyed the view. The food was ok. I cant say it was spectacular. Be aware that portion sizes are smaller than generally in restaurants. I liked the appetizer Braised Short Rib Piroshki. For main course I had a special Red Snapper. It was good. My friends ordered Oven Roasted Lamb Chops. The waiter said that its better to have them medium rare. But, when they brought them, they were too rare and blood was on the plate. So, we asked them to cook a little more. And after all the lamb chops were not soft and too much fatty. Deserts were delicious. So, overall, we enjoyed the view, appetizers and deserts. So, when you order the main course, make sure you know how you would like your food cooked.

Bad experience! My husband reserved a table to celebrate Valentine’s Day. He had specifically told them I was a vegetarian and we needed adjustments to the menu. Unfortunately, they didnt know anything about it and I even had brought to the table a plate of “foie gras” after told the server that I needed a vegetarian menu...awkward! Every plate was delicious, but we waited so long to have a small bite brought to us, that the all situation was ridiculous! Its definitely not worth the money!
Absolutely amazing! I was there for a company party, so I dont know if it was our food or the food from the restaurant but it was unbelievable. The atmosphere was laid back. There was an amazing night view of a single flag that was waving in the backdrop of the Atlanta skyline. Even though there was inclement weather there was a lot of staff there. I would definitely advise visiting Nikolais at least once.
The restaurant is a very classy place. I was staying at the Hilton, and I ate here. It was amazing. I ordered the beef tenderloin. It was very well done and tender, which I very much enjoyed. The service was good, being very nice and helpful. In conclusion, the food was awesome and the service was nice and helpful.
I stayed at the Loews Atlanta Hotel in October for a wedding. I usually dont expect too much from hotels I choose from a room block, but I was surprised at the excellent customer service, and the clean, quiet rooms. There was a great bar downstairs that we all were able to hang out in that had a decent selection.

Food was OK, but not worth the prices. Claims to be "Russian Cuisine" but apart from some weird version of piroshki and some caviar everything else was just overly expensive french food that was not particularly unique. The waiter was not very helpful with my wifes food allergy. It did have a nice view.
Had a 4 course meal and everything was absolutely delicious. Portions are small, but worth every penny. Service is outstanding (request Vassil) and the view is incredible. Would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone.
Best dining experience Ive ever paid for. You absolutely pay for it but if I could do it once a week I would no question. Get the flavored vodkas and the foie gras, enjoy the view and the company.
Slow but very nice service. View is a SkyView that doesnt include the ferris wheel but it was still nice in a clear night. Saw a successful proposal too. Very intimate setting.
Ive eaten here several times over the years and always had a great experience. Staff is always super attentive and the food is excellent. Particularly enjoy the infused vodkas!
Small portions, but pricey. Remember, this is an upscale restaurant (quite literally!). Definitely worth the money if youre up for high-quality dining!
Filet mignon and rack of lamb are awesome. Price is reasonable too! Will come back for sure! Long wait for the food though.

One of the few eateries in Atlanta that can truly boast the wisdom and artistry required to deliver true gourmet.
The view is spectacular. The food and desert tasted amazing ! A true date night or birthday dinner experience..
Our number one special occasion restaurant for more years than I care to remember.
The food and the view were spectacular. The 4 course menu is the way to go.
Small portions, but go for the quality, service, view, and exquisite taste.
