Excellant Greek Food
Always enjoy the excellent Greek food and service at Uncle Nick's. Spinach Pie is one of my favorites. A great place for a bite or dinner before a Ranger game.

Pleasant Greek, Good for a Fast Mea
Very pleasant Greek eatery but nothing particularly special. Ambiance and decor OK, feels a little like a revamped deli -tables very close together. Very attentive and pleasant service from waitstaff and bus-people. Shared a small Greek salad - unusually delicious and not-salty feta cheese. I had mussels in a tomato sauce with more feta - unusual and also tasty. Bottom line - while there are better Greek restaurants, this is nice for a fast pre-theatre meal.

Shrimp Santorini was yummy.
Shrimp Santorini was yummy. Greek red wine was excellent. Flaming cheese impressive. Dessert was great. What can I say, I had a great dining experience.

Three of us ate here, and we are all very familiar with Greek food. Uncle Nick's Moussaka - especially the vegetable moussaka - is AWESOME!
The Kalamarakia Tiganita was pretty excellent, also.
Next time, we are going to try the saganaki-tiri. Several other tables ordered it, and they put on a flaming cheese show when serving.

While exploring my neighborhood we found that Greek restaurant. The food is very good and authentic and main dish was a rather big portion. The staff was friendly and we paid around 30usd inkl starter per person. Overall a good experience, we would come again.

I shared a dinner with my friend. We stuffed ourselves and she still had enough to take a doggie bag home.

Glad we found this place so close to Penn Station. We ordered one small salad, an appetizer and one gyro platter. It was more than enough food for two people and we took some home.

Looked for a place convenient to viewing fireworks on the 4th and were pleasantly surprised - the dinner was wonderful! Our group shared several courses and each one was delicious - salads, appetizers, flaming cheese, salmon, swordfish., moussaka and dessert. Waiter and others on staff were terrific. All enjoyed their dinner.

Lunch at Uncle Nick's is like
Lunch at Uncle Nick's is like enjoying a home-cooked meal without standing over the stove or washing dishes. The food is plentiful, tasty, refreshingly unpretentious, and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is welcoming, and the service is excellent. I am so glad I found this place!

Especially the saganiki. We always end up ordering more of those than we did initially.

Uncle Nick Knows Greek
The Shrimp kebab and rice were delicious and the portion size was just right allowing room for a flavorful and moist dessert of baklava. I will go back to sample more Greek delights.

Good food and good prices
Been here many times for lunch, never disappoints. Food is always good. Octopus is terrific. Had the soup and it was good like every other dish I have had here. Only criticism was main course was brought out too quickly and we weren't finished with our appetizers yet. Otherwise good as always

Wonderful Authentic Greek Food
Uncle Nick's was absoultely fantastic. Friendly servers and wonderful food. The portions were gigantic so you may need to bring something home. The Flaming Cheese was all that it was cracked up to be. I will certainly return if I'm in the neighborhood or recommend to someone who needs to eat before a Madison Square Garden event.

Great Greek Gastro
You can see the other reviewers extolling the appitizer menu, it's all true. So much to choose from that appetizers alone can be the meal. We were there with 5 people, had a bunch of appetizers and then ordered three entrees and split them up. More than enough food, had to take some home!
Crowded on Friday evening, but that's to be expected. Great for Madison Square Garden events, only a couple of blocks away.
Service was a bit slow, but I know from experience if you tell them you're on the clock, they'll speed it up.
Mousaka was great, but the Saganaki (flaming cheese), and Gigante (stewed beans with onions, celery, tomato) are winners! Interesting Greek wine list as well.

Excellent food, needs more coverage in dining room, we were constantly searching for a waiter.

Good Surprise Near Penn Station
This is not a part of town I usually head to for fine dining, but we needed a place to meet before an Off-Off-Broadway play. Uncle Nick's was a real surprise. There is nothing fancy about the dining room, but the appetizers and mains were all excellent. I would certainly go back.

proper greek food
we were in new york for a weekend form Boston. My wife is greek but doesn't usually go to greek restaurants as they most often disappoint as an interpretation of what people think is greek cooking. However we needed something near the hotel because we were going to a jazz concert soon after. So we went to Uncle Nick's. We were very happy indeed we did. The keftethakia were lovely and light, the avgolemono (chicken soup with a lemon zesty flavour) was just like my mother-in-law makes! The portions were huge and the bill wasn't. no wonder the place was full from the time we arrived at 6pm to when we left at 8pm - but no pressure to give up the table. When they can get an excellent galaktoburoko they can have a full 5 out of 5!!!
