NIOS Ratings and Reviews
Fast seating. Friendly waiter. Compact but eclectic menu. Had wild salmon; good. Companion Margherita Flatbread; a little dry. Had cookies and cream dessert. OK, bit overpriced for cookies.
One thing I didn't like: Added 18% gratuity without asking. Don't usually see that in a restaurant, especially for just two people. It was probably in the fine print, but when a restaurant does that I expect the waiter to point that out when he gives me the check, which he didn't. I caught it so no big deal, but annoying.
I have been to NIOS at least a dozen times. It used to be a favorite go-to for pre-theater dinner. The menu has changed and it was just awful. It also is so dark that you cannot read the menu and the chairs are so low you feel your chin is on the table. I will not go back. Dinner for my husband who is a vegan was a green salad and a piece of bread. That after I told the restaurant of his dietary needs. The flat bread was a cracker with scattered pear and arugula. Nasty. Do not go here. Server was great but there was a snarky host at the door, even when I told him I had a reservation he did not ask my name or reference my reservation. I am so disappointed as I had had many lovely meals in the past
We were staying at the hotel Muse that's connected to the restaurant. We flew in from Europe and was hoping with the small menu that the quality would be good and the food would be fresh and that wasn't our experience. The restaurant/bar at 9:30pm on a Saturday night was completely empty and for 2 Kale salads and a shared flat bread plus 2 glasses of wine it was $130. A bit expensive for what it was.
Delightful restaurant attached to the Kimpton Muse Hotel. Specializes in small plates - we ordered three to share. The food was very good. This was a pre-theatre dinner - the restaurant is located in the heart of the theatre district. We came back after the show for dessert - very convenient, and very good.
Found this restaurant online based on its close proximity to the theatre. What a GREAT find!!! The bartender made a Harlem Fog, which I highly recommend for the taste & the presentation! The steak was extremely flavorful, as was the burger. Overall I would say this was a wonderful place to hang out and have a delicious bite to eat!
Small and simple menu. We ordered four "small plates." It was more than enough for the two of us. Each plate was prepared well. The lamb was medium rare, just as we ordered. The Sea Bass was perfectly cooked. (There is nothing that irritates us more than a good piece of fish the is overcooked. The service was stellar, from the time we made the reservation, to how we were greeted, and all the way to the knowledgeable and attentive wait staff. The location is perfect for the theater, and the prices are very reasonable.
WE'll be back the next time we visit NYC.
My girlfriend and I had eaten here twice before, but with another couple. This time we were on our own. Walking-in there was a large group of people at the front of the restaurant which created a din that caused us to speak louder than normal even though we were seated against the back wall.
But services was very good. The waiter, perhaps thinking we were on a date, let us share my appetizer (Heirloom tomatoes & watermelon) and my dessert (Trio Mousse Cake). Both were excellent by the way. If your a subscriber to Roundabout Theater and are attending a performance across the street, this is a good place to eat beforehand.
Grabbing bite before theatre. Great deal 3 share plates for $50. We shared excellent shrimp cerviche with plaintains, a small tasty lamb porterhouse, and a fairly large flatbread of cheese, prosciutto and fig that was delicious. Good rose wine. Also shared amousse cake. Only surprise was that we were 2 people and they added gratuity.
For a Manhattan restaurant, everything about it is average. Average ambiance, average food quality, average service. What made the experience less than average was the fact that they could not get our beef cooked properly. My business colleague and I had to return our food 2 times to be re-prepared because they cooked it wrong. I've never had to do that in all my years of dining out. That coupled with the fact that it's an average experience in a city of great restaurants, I don't think I would go back.
I really enjoyed this restaurant and was happy to have found it. I started with a tomato and watermelon salad that was delicious. From there I HAD THE Chilean sea bass. Also delicious. They were out of the strawberry rhubarb muffin but had a strawberry rhubarb pie that was out of this world. I would go back just to have dessert.
Connected to The Muse Hotel in NY's Theater District. Nios manages an intimate feel with delicious food for sharing. We loved thecauliflower small bites, the brussel sprouts and especially the mahi mahi fish tacos.
We returned after the Play for drinks and dessert for a happy ending.
