One of the few great Forest Hills restaurants – I do love Nick's pizza and frequent at least twice a month but that's partially due to the limited selection of really good restaurants in the area...prices are a little steep and have increased recently but it won't affect my patronage. The staff crack me up though; I have been a customer for years but they never show any acknowledgement that you have been there before.
Very good pizza, but overpriced – The pizza is very good, but it's not the best, Adrienne's Pizza Bar in downtown (Stone Street) is waay better. The shocker is that Nick's is more expensive than Adrienne's... But given that Nick's is closer to my home, I will still go from time to time and enjoy a very good pizza. If the two places were on the same street, I would not enter Nick's though.
overpriced – I heard numerous people complain about this place. I tried it anyway and I was sorry. The portions were small for the price. The staff was very rude too. They were very chincy on the toppings and they did not taste fresh either
really good pizza – Really good pizza! What else can you ask for from a pizza place? The service is fine. good value. I dont find it very cozy, but who cares?
By far the Best Pizza and Calzone ever!!!!! – Where do I begin? If you enjoy authentic thin crust pizza with the freshest tomato sauce and cheese, then this is definitely the place for you! The calzone is dangerously good. I also love that I can order my favorite wine by the glass or bottle and the service is super quick. We came in starving right before our movie and left in time to make the previews!!
Favorite Pizza in NYC – Definitely my favorite pizza in NYC. If you like a good sauce, this is it. I always get sausage and extra sauce. The mozzarella, basil and other ingredients are always fresh. If you prefer cheese pizzas, this may not be for you.
still doesn't surprise me – I've lived in Forest Hills for years and have been to Nick's three times, all years apart. The first time was with a group of about 8 when the place had first opened. It was appalling how rude the waiters were and how mediocre the food was.
About ten years later, my father and I decided to try Nick's again because of all the amazing write ups they had been getting over the years. I dont know how Nick's managed to make a burnt, soggy pizza, but they did. I swore off the place until a few days ago when a few buddies from out of town asked me about the place because of all the great things they'd heard. I didn't mention my past experiences at Nick's and we all went down.
Absolutely nothing has changed.
Never again – I'll start on a positive note: the menu is appealing, and the pizza is pretty good.
Ok, now for the review. I have been here four times. Each time, I am absolutely astounded by the unbelievably horrific service. To the point where you wonder if there is some hidden camera and you are part of some reality or "Punk'd" show. The staff here is horrible. I'd like to single at least one server out who is an anomaly but I can't.
Specifics? No attention, rudeness in answering questions about the menu, not informing you of any unpublished quirky things about the menu, they rush you along and generally make you feel unwelcome.
I'm glad to see it's not just me. As I see from the reviews, service is not a selling point for Nick's. And each time I have been there, other patrons and my party have commented on one example of poor service.
In this economy particularly, I'm dumbfounded by service establishments who don't step up and play their A-game.
While the food is decent, it is definitely not the best in NY or Queens. You can go elsewhere, pay the same or less and not leave feeling unwelcome.
I typically don't wish any business ill, or want to see people out of work but if Nick's does go under some day I will not be the slightest bit surprised. I will never go back.
should be called nickel and dime – They do not treat their customers well. This is the only Italian pizzaria/restaurant I have been to that doesn't provide condiments free of charge. You have to pay for parmesan cheese. and a slice of lemon for your water. I bet they will start charging for the salt and pepper on the table soon. AND they do not accept credit cards.
Charged for a sprinkle of Parmesan ??? – Pizza was Ok. Dee's on Metropolitan is better, but the kicker was I was, when I got the check I noticed I was charged a $1.50 for some Paremsan I had asked. I think I sprinkled a about 1/2 a teaspoon total on my pizza. Rather than make a scene I just took it out of the tip. Call me cheap!
