For my first experience especially during Valentine's Day, it was amazing. The staff was very welcoming. I loved how they allowed my boyfriend and I were accommodated for with seating. Food presentation was amazing. I would recommend someone to go!

Nicole’s does a great job for dinner and but the brunch is one of the best in Albany! It was our second time and it was better than our first, which was outstanding. I had the hazelnut chicken and waffles which blends their signature dinner entree with a tasty waffle, making a dish that’s hard to describe other than amazing, and my girlfriend had the breakfast flat bread which had eggs, cheese, crispy bacon and sauce on top, also amazing! Drinks are always on point at Nicole’s and the wait staff is fast, courteous and respectful of covid, great place to eat and if you haven’t been you need to go!

We hadn’t been here in years, but the new brunch menu I saw online had me make a reservation immediately! The lobster eggs Benedict tasted like our annual trip to Maine, amazing. My husband had the hazelnut crusted chicken and waffles which he liked, and we enjoyed some brunch cocktails. We will be back!

Food was delivered cold. We barely saw our waitress. Service was deathly slow, we were simply forgotten about. The service was an unorganized mess.

First time at Nicole's for brunch and it did not disappoint! The cocktails were both amazing and had a ton of flavor! Our entrees were equally amazing! My girlfriend had the crab cake benni and the crab cake was the best one we have ever tasted, and I had the eggs under construction omelet which was super tasty, and cooked to perfection. Our server was friendly, fast, and fun! Highly recommend a trip to Nicoles for Brunch or dinner!

Had a fabulous meal for brunch and the cocktails were great too. Waitress made a mistake and served us lobster eggs Benedict instead of crab cakes. We ate the lobster and she Did not charge us for the increased price and sent us home with the crab cakes. I am believer that how you react to a problem is how you will be remembered. I will remember this and will go back again and again. Would highly recommend!

Our dinner was fantastic! My friend and I shared the Beet and Pistachio Salad, and our husbands had the Fried Calamari to start. These were excellent starters. I had the Grilled Salmon that was excellent with the spaghetti squash. My husband had the Zuppa di Pesce and loved it! My friend raved about her Hazelnut Chicken; and her husband loved his Veal Theresa.

This was our return for a post-COVID dine-in, following up on recent take-out. Necessary precautions have been taken inside, which change the interior look somewhat, but maintain a cozy feel. Fabric hung between tables gives each privacy. We came in early on a Sunday and found it not too crowded, as we expected. Dylan was our cheerful and attentive server. He was, of course, masked and he wore gloves. The menu is traditional. We opted for a starter of butternut bisque, the Sunday special meat lasagna, as well as an eggplant parmigiana, accompanying house and caesar salads, and carrot cake for dessert. The bartender stopped by a couple of times to ask if she could assist us in any way. Nice teamwork. Plentiful parking in the adjacent lot. Recommended for an intimate dinner for two, or a small gathering!

Christmas Eve, we were seated upstairs, which is starkly lit, and barely ambient. Meals were well prepared, if not very basic. Bottle of wine was way overpriced.
