You can’t get closer to the heart of Manhattan than NIOS, nestled between the Theater District and Fifth Avenue. With a native New Yorker running the kitchen, NIOS serves up seasonal small plates inspired by American classics with a global flair, plus hand-crafted cocktails and a brilliant wine list, just steps from Broadway yet comfortably removed from the bustle of Times Square. Before the show or after, find yourself at NIOS.

My friend and I have dined at NIOS several times of the years and have always enjoyed our diners there. The dining room has a limited number of tables, but we never feel crowded. The vibe is upbeat and friendly, and the service is courteous and professional. At first we regretted that the excellent-value $45 prix-fixe menu is a thing of the past and that another prix-fixe menu, even at a higher price, isn't offered. I began with a delicious beet salad that included pistachios, and for my main course had a large and delicious serving of monkfish on a bed of tasty autumnal vegetables. For his appetizer my friend had a "side" of brussell sprouts that he enjoyed, and a trio of bison sliders for his main course. We both had wines by the glass from the very good wine list. My one criticism is that I find it outrageous to charge $15 for a small bowl of brussell sprouts. Otherwise, I found the prices of the main courses to be reasonable. Diners should note that the gratuity is included in the bill which, as a former resident of Paris, I think is a good idea. Our check, which included two glasses of wine apiece, came to $88 per person.

Nios is a pre-theatre favorite for us. We come here often. Great ambiance, really good food, wonderful service. And 100% consistent. Be sure to plan to stop at the restroom to enjoy the six emotions before you go to a sow and beat the lines!

Huevos rancheros were made with tortilla chips. Yuk. Not what one expects at breakfast. Cappuccino came with soured separated milk. Servers made it right by but wish food quality matched service. Nice ambiance and good location in midtown. Stick with the basic dishes and it'll be fine.

In the heart of time square it’s extremely hard to find great food and also service, Nios had both! Tucked into a new Kimpton Hotel this is a gem and I will definitely be returning for dinner before I head to a show. I’d hope to see the menu expand at some point but it had really great options and everything was delicious.

Service was fast and friendly. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful in choosing our dishes. We have the special - a Mediterranean bass for two. It was excellent. It was three pounds of fish poached in a very nice sauce. We didn’t think we would finish but we couldn’t stop. It was that good.

By the way the location is perfect for preorder post theater dining. It’s on 46th between 7th and 8th. Our theater was less than a block away. And prices are reasonable.

It was quiet for the most part for a bite to eat before a show. We ordered 3 flatbreads and none were very impressive. Dull flavor and small for the price ($20 a piece). I think it’s overpriced for the quality since it’s close to Times Square. If they invest more in what their food tastes like it’ll be a better spot.

Food is expensive given the quality...$10 for a side (small cup) of frozen waffle fries. When other restaurants around the city are putting quality of ingredients and food they put out for customers I don’t know why anyone would go back a second time to this restaurant. Also, this is my first restaurant review EVER! Do not go here!!...(even though it is listed under good theater district restaurants)...Chick Fil A waffle fries are way better...and you can get a sandwich and drink with it for less than $10.

NIOS is located in the Muse Hotel (A Kimpton property) in the Theatre District. It is a very elegant, small restaurant with a good wine list, and small plates (mostly). I had steak and potatoes, which was a good choice. Given its location, NIOS works well with theatre plans.

Although I had dinner reservations I decided to check in and sit at the bar instead. We were chatting with the bartender and I told him make me something good with bourbon. He mixed me up a “New York State of mind”. Bourbon, butters and egg white and a few other ingredients. Believe me it tasted way better than it sounds
We ordered bison sliders, fish tacos, Brussel sprouts and fries. All high end pub food.
Another off menu drink a Golden something, I can’t remember the name. Bourbon, grapefruit, bitters , honey, lemon and basil.
It was great. If your in the area stop by

Nios provided a good venue for a meet-up of a variety of friends who all happened to be in NYC on the same night. The reserved table was comfortable, and the service team were very helpful and good at suggestions for menu items that were good to share. The food itself was nicely presented. We were happy to find that it was lively, but not so noisy that we couldn't talk. We would return.
