Niles remains a very special place to dine! I took friends for lunch and they absolutely enjoyed it! The hostess was courteous! The service by "Miguel," was polite and prompt! The meals were nicely prepared, presented, good portions and tasty! The atmosphere was pleasant and comfortable! All at a great value! The manager "Maggie," was gracious! I recommend Niles, for meals, drinks, special occasions and a good time!

Crabcake appetizer and French chicken dinner entree was excellent. Pauses between courses was longer than I like but tolerable.

Had a client lunch at Niles. Place is clean, well lit , easy access to Penn Station. Service was great , yet gave us room to talk with my client. None of the uptown hustle bustle. Food was really good and reasonably priced for a NYC restaurant.

I have dined at Niles on and off for a long time as my office was across the street. I now work in NJ and find it really convenient and quality is the same as I remembered - great value.

Really enjoyed this restaurant. First time visit and would definitely go back. The wait staff was great. The crabcakes were delicious and so was the pomegranate martini! I also had the lamb which was really tasty. Also, you can’t beat the location; across from MSG.

As always, coming to Niles is like coming home. We ate three meals in row there this weekend and they were all excellent. Even our fussy vegetarian son was happy as the chef adapted the day's special tortellini recipe to fit his needs at lunchtime.

Great food, atmosphere, location. Will go again next time in New York. Hands down the french onion soup is outstanding along with the filet mignon.

Pleasant surprise for a hotel restaurant in Manhattan! The roasted French chicken is not to be missed. My dining companions gave similar feedback in the scallops & quinoa bowl. Jorge A. paced the service just-right. As metro area natives we actually got a tad concerned about the speed... then realized that everything came just-right, making for a lovely meal with good fellowship.

A group of us have been getting together for lunch at Niles for several months now. The consensus was that this was the best place in the neighborhood for our needs. Some of the group have entrees (often the salmon, which several people recommend) and others have salads or sandwiches. There's someone for everyone. It is somewhat loud in the busiest part of lunch time, but quiets down as the afternoon goes on.

The service was terrific and the food even better. I ordered a filet mignon very well done. The waiter asked if I would lime it filleted so it would cook more evenly. My friend ordered a skirt steak medium. Both steaks were cooked precisely how we ordered them and amazing! My new go to NYC restaurant! 5 stars all the way!! Mat

Had concert tickets for MSG and wanted an early dinner nearby. Saw Niles on line and decided to try it. Both my husband and I had a lovely dinner. The food was excellent; service was attentive without being overbearing. All food courses were brought out in a timely manner. We didn’t feel rushed, yet we had time to sample an appy, entree, and dessert and have plenty of time to get to the concert. We will return.

Food was very good and was priced well for New York City. Due to the low ceiling the conversations from other tables carried over including one very loud talker from 2 tables away.

Niles is my go to place for business lunches or a bite before heading to MSG. Great variety of food options no matter your mood. Going as often as I do I appreciate how often they shake up the menu. Very reasonably priced and the service is first rate. I have never had a bad meal here.
