  • "I was meeting a friend from LA and also had my neices in NYC for the first time and someone recommended Nicks. The outside of the restaurant threw me at first. However once we were in thr atmosphere food and service was excellent. Reasonably priced as well."

  • "Uncle Nicks is one of the best Greek restaurants in Manhattan, serving authentic food. Upon entering we were immediately seated and served beverages. Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. I had the pastitsio and my companion ordered the lamb kabob. Both were well prepared. Their pastitsio is excellent and not drowned in tomato sauce like most Greek restaurants in the New York area. My companion lamb kabob was prepared as ordered. The deserts are very good and can serve two. Will return."

  • "Food was fabulous! Tzatziki sauce was best we ever had...homemade for sure! Best Gyro ever...super thin slices. Service excellent also! Doesn't look like much from the outside but don't let that fool you."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I must say the ambience was not what I expected, but the food and service did not disappoint. The grilled halibut was delicious, as were the accompanying vegetables and the country Greek salad. It's not upscale, the tables are too close together and it gets very noisy when the place fills up, but if you want a very good meal in a very casual, neighborhood setting, this is your place."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "If the service was 1/2 as good as the food, Nick's would have rated a 5-star. Very crowded at lunch with one server - not a plaace to eat if time is an issue"

  • "My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting Uncle Nick's for the first time on 7/5. We had plans for a somewhat early dinner as we had theater tickets later that evening. We were immediately seated and greeted by our server, who was very friendly and attentive. We started off with Tomato and Feta Saganaki, which his oven-baked vine tomatoes covered with Feta cheese. Delicious! I must say that we won't be very helpful in our meal selection as we both selected the Spanakopita (Spinach Pie) which was accompanied by a small Greek salad and rice Pilaf. The helping sive was very generous, and the meal terrific. The menu is extensive but not expensive. If you are a fan of traditional Greek offerings, be sure to check them out. We'll visit again."

  • "Nick's is a true neighborhood gem--lots of regulars and tourists populate this urban find. We ordered the beef kabobs and a traditional greek salad. The kabobs were set upon a bed of rice and cooked to a perfect medium. The meat was tender and tasty, the rice was fluffy and the salad had just the right amount of veggies/dressing. Overall, we enjoyed our experience--it was the perfect meal before we headed off to our broadway show."

  • "Went for lunch with a group of 12. Had to wait for the table to be set up even though we had a reservation. Wait for appetizers was quite long but they were worth it. Everyone was pleased with the entrees as well. I would definitely return."

  • "This is my second time dining at Uncle Nick's. We thought it was an appropiate place to eat before "Mamma Mia". The food is very good an abundant. The service is prompt and attentive. Restaurant is small and crowded, but this only seems to make the atmosphere more authentic. Will definitely go back and recommend it."

  • "We went to uncle nick's after the THeater on a Sunday afternoon. The service was excellent. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was good and plentiful. The food was presented in an attractive manner. The ambiance was not attractive at all. The first hundred or so feet was shared by a stainless counterand the kitchen and tables for as many as six people . Next to the tables was an attractive exposed brick wall. In the rear of the space was a squarish room with tables. This is not a white tablecloth restaurant. That said , this is good for a casual meal; not for leisurely dining."

  • "I went with family to celebrate my birthday because of the vibrant atmosphere and always delicious and fresh food. Easy to fill up on the appetizers, just make sure you save room for the desserts! "

  • "Every dish was delicious. We had flaming cheese (fun to see and sooo tasty as well), grilled octopus (soft and perfectly moist), Greek salad (just like you imagine it should be), and the normal Mousaka (just amazing mouth-watering comfort food). We enjoyed a great Malbec with the meal, which was served promptly. Service was friendly as well. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Good Greek favorites, done well. Big portions mean sharing is possible, especially before a midtown show. Very good service, attentive & accomodating to family needs. Nice wine list choices too! We enjoyed the sardines & moussaka (missed out on soft shell crabs- next visit!)"
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "It was fine - nothing great, convenient to the theater."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "We went to Uncle Nick's for a pre matinee lunch - 3 people in our party. The food was delicious and reasonable for NYC. We started with the fried zucchini appetizer. Two of us had the soft shell crabs and the other person had the bifeteki. All enjoyed the meal. For desert we shared the bakalav and the rice pudding - they were fabulous. We definitely will go back!!"

    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "The food here is as authentic as any I've tasted since a visit to Greece. The waiters are efficient and took care of our 2 1/2 year old with a high chair and much patience. We appreciated the good service and the ability to linger over our meal even thought the restaurant was busy and people waiting."
