Food and ambiance are always good. Can't beat the location for any event at Madison Square Garden.

It seemed staffing might have been an issue, as we did have a lengthy wait between ordering drinks and appetizers.

I'm willing to chalk that up to the current situation with Covid.
Still I will go back, the food is excellent. Scallops were large and cooked nicely, salmon in the curry with the curry sauce was delicious and the sea bass was excellent.

If you are scheduling a trip to Madison Square Garden, Niles is the perfect spot to dine prior to the event. Food was delightful and very affordable. Atmosphere was perfect.

Great location if you're going to an event at Madison Square Garden. Big place, a bit noisy. Tables are nicely spaced apart. Decent food, if somewhat of a limited menu. Prices are a bit high for the size of the entree you get.

This was a wonderful surprise; we only wish we'd had more time to enjoy the meal instead of rushing off to the theatre. Lovely, diverse menu, ample but not overwhelming portions, pretty plating, simple chic atmosphere. We will go again, definitely, and linger!

The food at the Niles was actually very good - the french fries were addictive. Good food all around and convenient to MSG for a concert. I was a little thrown off at the low ceilings - it felt like a basement and it is attached to a hotel. I would eat here again and recommend it for a pre-concert meal. They were able to get our concert goers their food first so they could get there before the main act went on.

Noise level was quiet because only two other tables were occupied--allowing us to relax after the train ride to New York and enjoy what was to be our best meal in four nights in town. We both had fish, and would have it again if we're in your neighborhood again.

Niles restaurant is in the Stewart Hotel. It is 1 block from Penn Station and Madison Square Garden. It was very stylish, everyone was very friendly and efficient and the food and drink was excellent!! It is my new favorite restaurant for this area!

Went to NiLES with my family before the Eagles concert at MSG - was pleasantly surprised at the ambience-nice bar, nice restaurant seating area. Service was great, especially in consideration of a short timeline between our reservation and leaving for the show, and the food was excellent. The fish was fresh, the chicken paillard was excellent, and they accommodated my daughters dietary needs. Absolutely will return and it won’t require concert tickets to do so

You have to go here! everything about our experience was lovely. We were greeted so pleasantly and seated immediately at a nice table that was distanced from others. Our server treated us to fresh cold water and a basket of delicious rolls and took our drink order right away. The hostess was aware that we were planning for the 8pm MSG concert and timing couldn't have been more perfect - not rushed, but not ignored for hours (pet peeve of mine - recently at another restaurant we waited 1 hr 50 minutes from the time we sat down to receiving our meal!). The ambiance is clean and sparkly and the location is literally right across the street from MSG. So now the food - which is the real reason you need to go - let me just say that it was so good that I wished I had more just hours later. I ordered the shrimp tacos and the shrimp were meaty, crisp (fresh crisp not fried crisp) and perfectly seasoned in a sweet/spicy sauce. The accoutrements were all perfectly proportioned so that every bite was delicious. My husband had the burger which he said was good, but I have to also rave about the fries as I'm a bit of a french fry snob if there's such a thing - they were hot, crispy not greasy, and most importantly, salted just right. We were floored by the beet/orange/arugula salad, it was so good, and if there's only one comment for improvement, it would be that it could have been larger. It's not unusual for salads to serve only one person, but we assumed (hoped) that it would have been large enough to share.
So this is now a favorite, and although we don't visit NYC often, we will plan future MSG shows around making sure we have dinner here first!

This is my favorite place to have dinner before an event at MSG. Happy to be back @ Niles and MSG last night- I missed both places. Niles has great food that is affordable, wonderful service and are used to accommodate people going to events at MSG. I hope to be back more frequently now.

Food was really good, service was ok considering the place was pretty empty. One thing to note they do not outdoor seating (at least they didnt the night we went). Overall a nice surprise for being right outside of Penn Station.

I arrived early for my reservation and they just opened. The woman who greeted me was very nice and seated me right away. Once the rest of my party arrived, we ordered and had a nice time. We didn't feel rushed or pressured to leave once we finished eating. The food was delicious and the guacamole was really good too!
