Niles New York City Ratings and Reviews
Our family loves Niles. We live in Suffolk County. Anytime we come in on the LIRR we
make a reservation at Niles. Excellent food and service. Manager always stops by the
table to see how everything is going. Our granddaughter loves the pretzel chicken.
Please never take it off the menu. I always have a fish dish. Preparation is kind on
the eye and delicious.
We stayed at the hotel and decided to have brunch there before our show. The food was reasonably priced for NYC and the ambiance was nice. The service was a little slow as I had to quickly get my check and pay so we did not miss our curtain call. Would try maybe lunch or dinner here if we stay at the hotel again.
The server, Jorge A, was not very friendly or attentive at all. At one point he even threw the check on the table. I had previously been to this restaurant and enjoyed it. However, now I am not sure I will be back or continue to recommend this establishment. Very disappointing.
Going to Madison Square Garden so I chose Niles. Big room. Noisy. Parents let baby scream incessantly for 10 minutes. People changed their table. Staff did nothing. I understand that babies fuss but a responsible parent removes the child after two or three minutes. Staff should not allow one patron to dominate a room. Food ok but not special. Will try another next time I get Knick’s tickets.
Not terrible, but definitely not worth the money. Crab cocktail was just not fresh. Restaurant appears to be a converted basement, with odd decor... like they tried to spruce it up, but didn't really succeed. Can still smell cigarette smoke from whatever it used to be.
Went there for breakfast on Christmas Day. Perhaps that was the problem.
The food was average without the typical components (i.e.- any place I've ever ordered steak and eggs, it would usually come with toast.....er not here....). The portions were a bit small, and the steak was a bit gristly. The staff was courteous but pretty absent minded. We had to ask for simple things several times (water refills, sugar.....pretty much anything).
The tab was higher than the value of the food.
Menu items we enjoyed included scallop appetizer, lobster bisque, Chilean sea bass, and filet mignon. The filet was cooked perfectly, the sea bass was just right, and the apps were hearty and delicious. The service was unmatched and the contemporary ambiance was serene, perfect for conversation and good company. Highly recommended.
I think the service was excellent and the food was fresh and tasty. It has a modern feel, but still maintains a warm character. As it’s next to a hotel there’s a diverse mix of patrons all pleasant. If your going to be at the Garden it’s a perfect location.
A great spot across from Penn Station/Madison Square Garden. Interesting fare. Nice bar setting with three tables in the window. Other tables are down a few stairs , large open space but amazingly quiet so you an actually enjoy the conversation at your table without fighting to be heard over other tables. Cocktails and wine list are good.
Why does no one know about this place? I use it all the time when I have an event close to Penn station and yet it is never listed on google searches for good eats by Penn station.
This was my guests first-time at Niles and they experienced it as LOVELY!!
Our waiter was wonderful- as the staff always is.
just a delightful eating experience
Beautiful restaurant and a lovely meal. My only issue was the fact we could never find our waiter. First, it took almost 10 minutes for someone to take our order, had to hunt him down for water (which was never given from the beginning), and then finally got someone else to look for him to get the check. This was lunch time. It wasn’t that busy for him to disappear like that. How unfortunate considering the food was great.
Service was good for the most part, however, the waiter came to take the order while I was in the bathroom. Should have waited till party was all seated. Food was just ok. Nothing special. Hubby had the Rib Eye but the spinach tasted burnt & the portbello potato pastry on the side was very greasy & did not taste good. I had filet mignon, mashed potatoes were bland. Friend had chilean seabass which he said was good but seafood risotto it came with was not good. We went before a concert in the garden so they were quick with getting us out in time for the show. All in all it was just ok. Prob won't go back. There are better restaurants in the city
Lively bar scene up front. We ate in the back. Delighted to be able to hear each other! Waiters were very attentive and nice. Food took too long to come and was good but not great. My chicken paillard was a very flat piece of grilled chicken, dry with no gravy or sauce of any kind. My guests had fish and their sauces were gloppy and too sweet. It is a hotel after all! Nevertheless, quite an oasis from the bustle just outside the door.
Found Niles NYC on Open Table, invited a friend to brunch for her belated birthday, she couldn't do brunch so we met for dinner instead; it was wonderful. I hadn't tried scallops before; they were delicious. The warm lava cake was absolutely decadent. When my friend arrived, she realized she had been to Niles previously - meeting relatives for cocktails. Very nice.
Staff is very pleasant. I asked for a quiet table towards the back, and they gave us a really nice table that was quiet. We went there for a Thanksgiving dinner, which was very good and reasonable. One of our group is a vegan, and they had several choices for her. Everyone was happy.
Dined here with friends before a concert at MSG. Perfect location to be steps away from the venue. Grabbed a drink in the bar and then had a lovely meal in the dining room. Had requested a quiet spot and they obliged with a table in the back corner. All four of us enjoyed our dinners. Two were celebrating birthdays and they surprised us with a special dessert. Would recommend for a great meal especially if going to Madison Square Garden.
Everything from the drink at the bar to the spaced out dinner was outrageous! The service is fantastic! I was slightly hesitant w the review here ..so glad We went ...it’s the perfect place if you are going to a show at MSG!
Creatively presented plates, great food, good atmosphere. Service was a bit slow but we wanted the time hanging out so it was no issue to us at all. The staff was very professional and attentive. Recommend the shrimp appetizer! I will definitely go back to try other items on the menu!
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.
