Loved the avocado salad was the best. Loved the olives and feta on my Greek salad dressing could have been a little more tañgy but was OK.

Service was spot on, the proprietress greeted us at the door and made us feel right at home. In addition to the menu there were a number of specials also available. The Yiya Yiya soup ( grandmas soup) was a thick chicken lemon broth with rice studded meat balls and carrots. One of the daily specials but not as good... More

I live in NYC and have deep roots in Westchester County, and look for every excuse to go to Niko's, my favorite Greek Taverna. Between the food, the blue and white decor, and the panoramic photos of Athens and Santorini, I can pretend I'm back in Greece, marveling at Delpi and hopping the sun drenched islands. A meal at Niko's... More

We went to this restaurant expecting a good Greek meal but what a disaster. The food was cold, tasteless and tables were too close for comfort. Maybe the chef was out sick on that day..

Although the place was somewhat cozy, it was also a bit too dark! First and foremost the food took quite a bit to come out. When it was brought out the food we ordered was cold, too salty, and not appealing. The salt content in the food should be noted on the menu for those who suffer from Hypertension!

Came here with friends on a Saturday night, but just too LOUD for me, and super busy. The tables are too close together, so if you are going out for a romantic date - don't come here. Besides Street Parking is a hassle. However the staff were friendly and the service was fast. I would not come back here on... More

Nikos is a well established restaurant; a mainstay on Central Avenue for many years, and well deserving of a visit. I have frequented there for lunch only and most recently had the opportunity to dine in their outdoor patio. It was a beautiful day; enjoyable experience, good service with food to match. A few standouts: complimentary olives (seasoned well), Avgolemono... More
