Niles New York City Ratings and Reviews
The food was very good. The atmosphere was reasonably good, but there was quite a bit of background noise. Service was good to start, but I had a difficult time tracking down my waiter to order a second drink; eventually a different waiter noticed me looking around and took my order. Otherwise, a very enjoyable experience. We were in the neighborhood for an event at MSG. Should I attend an event there in the future, I won't hesitate to go back.
When going to the theater, Niles has been my husband's and my steady, go-to restaurant for years. This past Wednesday was our last, due to horrible service and an awful meal. After we placed our order, the server disappeared. We were able to flag down a water service person to request water and olive oil for our bread in lieu of the butter that was hastily placed on our table before the server fled. The soup of the day, Black Bean, was a watery broth laden with tortilla strips, without a single whole black bean to be had. Any hint of making the soup special -- a small dollop of sour cream, perhaps? -- also was absent. My husband's lobster salad sandwich was laden with mayonnaise, making the scant amount of lobster unrecognizable. The salmon on my cob salad was cold, not even room temperature, and half-cooked. With our server still AWOL, and other servers seeming overly busy, there was no one who was about to help. With a show to catch, I pushed the salmon to the side and ate my salad. My husband plodded through his mediocre sandwich. Alas, after we were finished, our server reappeared and said, "Everything was fine?" When I showed him my uneaten, raw salmon, and told him that I would have preferred being asked about my meal earlier, he took the plate, saying, "I'll show this to the manager and "fix" your bill." He returned, saying that our bill was "fixed" and did we care for a cup of coffee on the house? We ordered 2 cappuccinos, which is what we always order. When the server returned with the check, a scanty $8 was deducted and we were charged for 2 cappuccinos. Since our meal was all but inedible and the service nonexistent, the very least the manager could have done, was fully comp my salmon salad and perhaps one $5 cappuccino? Rather than argue our point to a manager who didn't care, we paid and left with a very bad taste in our mouths. Obviously, earning our business was less important than taking our money, which Niles won't see again.
Going to the home opener of the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Af first I was disappointed to learn a restaurant I really liked which was across the street closed I found Niles, and was glad I did. The food ambiance and service are incredible. I am so glad I found this restaurant. I have already made my next reservation for the next Knicks home game Pre dinner. If you are in the MSG area you should try this restaurant as you will be glad you did.
One of my lunch party was forgotten with the drink order and the same person's food order was incorrect. He wound up with only a cup of black bean soup. When the server couldn't seem to understand that his order was not received, it was too late as the other members of the meal were almost finished.
The restaurant is convenient to Madison Square Garden, which is pretty much the only reason we picked it, as we had a show to see. The place is very noisy, our waiter switched halfway through dinner without telling us, and the atmosphere in general was just ok, at best. The food was good, not great. For the lobster and avocado salad - the evening's special- the lobster seemed like it had been previously frozen and was almost tasteless. And they forgot to give us avocado, which we had to track dish the waiter to get! I am not sure I'll be back.
There was a big bar scene happening when we arrived and the noise level was quite high which concerned me. We were assured it was significantly quieter in the dining room and it was. The bar scene also did not last long. The food and service were both excellent and it was a comfortable and pleasant experience.
Nice place, conveniently next to MSG.The service was good. The food was very good, well prepared nice presentation and decent portions. Only disappointment was the wine list. Low quality mass produced wines at a ridiculously high mark up. Eat the good food with beer.
We had tickets to an 8 pm show at the Garden. We were late in arriving due to traffic. We sat and ordered at 7 pm. Our meal was ready and delicious by 715. Good service - they know how to get you out for a show. Nice menu selection and good quality food with a nice ambiance. I would definitly go again.
My husband and I dined here so we would be close to Madison Square Garden for the Pau McCartney concert. The menu was excellent and the food was very good. We both had fish dishes which I would highly recommend - Sea Bass and Striped Bass. The waiters were attentive.
Was looking for a place walking distance convenient to MSG and found this among other places listed on Open Table and other sites. Niles was perfect for pre-concert dinner. The bartenders and wait staff were all very nice, but a bit lacking in customer attention. The food was good, as was expected.
This is an excellent spot in the midst of the busy Penn Station neighborhood for a business meal. We met at 10:00a and ended up talking for 4 hours. No one bothered us. Food was served promptly, attractively and was tasty. Hard to tell about the calibre of a restaurant from breakfast menu. This is the Stewart Hotel and the space is roomy, quiet and no one rushes you. The wait staff is excellent.
The waiter we had initially was not a happy camper. He was not client friendly, we felt rushed in ordering, and was brusque in answering questions about the menu. He never brought items that were requested to the table ( lemons for water). I approached the manager and requested another waiter. The manager handled it very well and the new waiter was polite, pleasant, and considerate. I was there a month ago and he actually remembered me. I returned because of the customer service, location, and the food. Overall I recommend this restaurant, but some of the waiters need to be retrained.
