***HIGHLY RECOMMEND DINING AT THIS FABULOUS RESTAURANT*** My husband surprised me with a dinner at Nick & Nat's Uptown 21 for my 35th birthday this year. He had asked around for restaurant recommendations and Nick and Nat's was the number 1 recommendation from our friends that live in the area. When we arrived at this very intimate setting, we were...

My boyfriend and I have visited Nick and Nat's numerous times and it has always been top notch. The ingredients are always fresh and of high quality, and Nick is an amazing chef. There is always something with a delicious and unique flavor you will be thinking about for days after because you haven't ever tasted anything else like it.... More

I recently visited Uptown 21 on a weekend. It wasn't a theme night, just their normal a la carte menu and their prix fixe menu. Everyone in our party found that the prices were very reasonable for the quality and number of courses. I was especially impressed with the price point of their wine pairings and their general wine list!... More

We always seem to have the same waiter. He has great suggestions and is fun to spend the evening with. However, we really go for the food. It is such a solid and creative menu. Everything is thoughtful, delicious and, in many ways, seems to be inspired by the foods we grew up with in this still german inspired area.... More

Mexican theme evening. Brilliant entree, combination of flavours was amazing. I know I can't make food this good at home! I can't wait until they open their Mexican Restaurant in Waterloo this Spring!!

My husband and I have dined here a few times but lately, the food and service is not what it used to be. We went for Tapas Tuesday and the waiter was absolutely terrible. He did not converse with us one bit, I don't even know his name since he didnt introduce himself to us. As he was bringing the... More

Well located in Uptown Waterloo. Bistro setting, wide variety of menu choices at affordable prices. Staff is friendly and accomodating. Warm lovely ambiance for couples, business or get together with friends. Recommend to reserve since it is pretty busy. Bon appetit! Enjoy. They have weekly specials and features.

Great food, server was very pleasant. You can order your meal as a complete meal in 3 courses or 4 courses, or just off the menu. We did the three course and it was wonderful. Started with an French onion soup, then the Beef Brisket and on to dessert. All made with fresh ingredients. All amazing. Went with friends. This... More

We went for Tapas Tuesday. In terms of the food, it was a wonderful experience. The choices kept coming and had a very wide variety. Lots of different stuff and a great way to try different things. You don't have any control over what you get, but they keep them coming and the chef makes some great choices. Unfortunately the... More

The quality, presentation and taste of Nick and Nat's food is second to none. The atmostphere in the restaurant and location in uptown waterloo are amazing and on top of that Nick and Nat put on lots of special events (open to public) that involve set menus, guest chefs, etc. The prices are not the cheapest, but they are inline...
