Niles New York City
Unexpected FindI found a new hangout in an unexpected place. Niles is in the Affina Hotel near Madison Square Garden and it is excellent. I had the Irish Omelet which was delicious and flavorful in every bite. The restaurant itself is nice looking with little painting of scenes of the city on the walls - very clean & fresh. The staff was very attentive & accommodating. They have a very swanky bar area which I am going to try for an afternoon drink but looking over the rest of the menu, it will be hard to resist having dinner & dessert there after. And the muffin basket is fresh & hard to resist as well.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in the neighborhoodFor pre- or post-Madison Square Garden events this is an excellent choice. Much better than the standard pub grub joints that dominate the area. Fine dining, good wines, nice atmosphere. Locals should be flocking here, not just tourists who seem to be the majority of diners. [BTW, the pretzel crumb covered chicken in a coarse mustard sauce is excellent--substitute potatoes with the pistachio wild rice.]4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDefineitly better experienceDefineitly better experience than our last visit! Our food has always been enjoyable. Service was top notch this visit and blew me away. Thank you! We'll, of course, be back!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent food! ServiceAlways excellent food! Service can be slow and noise is bad if you sit near the bar area. I take clients there and go with friends also. High recommendation.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe perfect place to dineThe perfect place to dine if you're attending an event at the Garden. Much better than Nick & Stef's which is over priced and cramps you in shoulder to shoulder with the people at the next table.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI was very excited to returnI was very excited to return to Niles although, upon arrival, there was no host or hostess present to seat me so I was taken to my table by a waiter. The waiter was not familiar with procedure, didn't even note that I was an Open Table client even after making mention. There were no bread plates at the table and my guest and I had to ask for them even after we were served bread, our waiter just wasn't attentive as we had to call his attention every time we needed him. We truly enjoyed our meal but the overall experience was not as good as our first visit. Hopefully, our return will be more like the first!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been there twice withinHave been there twice within the past few weeks.

We were staying at the Affinia Manhattan in which the restaurant is in the hotel so very convenient. Place looks nicely decorated for a nice dinner and reasonably priced. Had the appetizer crab cakes and it was only ok because I'm from Maryland so I know what a good lump crabcake taste like and it was far from it but not unbearable. Service was great and we received 20% off since we were staying at the hotel attached to it.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice overall experience.Very nice overall experience. The food was very good.
