Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What an incredible restaurant. We had the seven course menu for €79 each. However, this was actually 10 courses of total perfection. From the courgette gazpacho to the beef cheek cooked for 24 hours (with the lightest polenta I've ever had), it was utterly delightful....Huge flavours, excellent service and value. One chef and one waiter. There's only one menu and it's 5 or 7 courses. Not sure a vegetarian would get on well here. The wine is reasonably priced (you can have a wine selection to go with the courses) and the cocktails are excellent. We arrived at 1915 and left at 2300. It's a rightfully leisurely affair and you'll be totally stuffed and happy at the endMore

After Milliseme it is hard to find another gem.....That said, Influence is good. The food is very decent and we had a very nice time. The waiter was very friendly. Sometimes it took a little too long between courses but all in all we had...a very nice meal for a reasonable price. Would we visit again? Not immediately but we would recommend for a nice evening out.More

Made a reservation in this cozy and small restaurant during our stay in Nice. We were greeted by a very friendly staff and seated at our table. It was a Tuesday night so it was faily quiet. To see the menu, you would need to...scan their QR code at the table. There was a choice of 5 or 7 courses menu with pairing wines as an option, with a price tag of 55 or 79 euros respectively. We chose the 7 courses. Here is our feedback on the food: Firstly, the appearance and presentation of the food. Presentation is good but could have been better, while the appearance is blunt and grey, not Instagram friendly. Perhaps, it is the menu and choice of ingredients used. Looking at the photos posted on their site, the dishes were colourful and appeared appetizing. We guess we were just unlucky for our visit. Taste-wise, it is acceptable but not gloryingly spectacular. We are frequent fine dining and Michelin * restaurants diners. We have had high expectation and looked forward to tasting the food, but could not helped feeling a tad disappointed especially seeing the positive reviews about the restaurant. The table service was very good and the gentleman serving us was attentive and informative. He even offered me a shawl (no cushions) to support my back as the chair seats are not well padded and least comfortable. The decor was warm and cozy with varying types of wicker hanging light shades. There is promising opportunity for the restaurant to escalate to a higher level of fine dining. It was a good experience for us to dine at Influence Nice and tried out their food. There is nothing negative about the service, only our constructive observations of the menu choice and ingredients used. Our sincere best wishes to Chef Aurele Gasperoni and his team in making the restaurant a sucess. The Wise-Ones April 2023More

We recently had a meal for 2 in this small restaurant. We had the 7 courses and all were delicious, unusual, with great attention to detail. Our waiter was superb! Made at effort to speak English as we struggled in French. I had a delicious...lycee cocktail to kick things off and the waiter recommended some amazing wines to match our courses.

An amazing dining journey through 7 courses that included sushi, lamb, rabbit, and divine chocolate. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience. You are greeted by an enthusiastic and very helpful server. You have two choices 5 or 7 course tasting meals skillfully and expertly crafted...by the chef. We commented "that was amazing" after each course. Although not long - the wine list seemed to have a good selection of wines. We went with our server's recommendation for a Pinot Noir that went very well with the meal. It was a wonderful experience!!More

Very nice concept with the menu / theme changing every month. When we went the “influence” was Asian. Set menu (5 or 7 dishes) - we went for the 5 dishes. All was delicious, thoughtful and interesting combinations. A real gastronomic experience at a very...good price/quality ratio. Highly recommended although as the restaurant is small, I hesitated to share for fear of not being able to get a booking next time 😉More
