    Our waiter was not in the least cheerful and didn't bring bread or offer bread, even though I was having a salad. And then she brought the bread with no butter or olive oil and I had to ask for that too! Plus she kept her head down the entire time and didn't acknowledge us when we signaled that we needed a second Diet Coke or, at the end of our meal, a cappucino. My experiences at Nice Matin have been great in the past, but this was disappointing.

    The menu offers a thoughtfully curated variety of Nicoise-style dishes, flavorfully prepared with fresh ingredients, and a small but classy selection of moderate-priced wines by the glass. Sophisticated and attractive yet comfortable ambience. Service was generally very pleasant though some errors were made in our orders. Definitely one of the better moderate-priced eateries in the Upper West Side.

    Food was very good. There were lots of good options. I had salmon which was good. Other people at my table had the sole and a burger. Everyone’s meal was good. We had cauliflower and octopus as appetizers and those were all very good. I recommend going.

    Best French food on the UWS, great cocktails, great service, and prices are reasonable. If you’re dining outdoors and don’t want to dodge people in the bike lane, make sure to request to be sat in one of the less dangerous outdoor sections.

    Always a fan of Nice Matin but this time was a bit disappointed. How can you not have tuna for a Salad nicoise and offer canned instead? I understand the difficulties with supply chain etc. but wait staff should have been aware of the issue when I placed my order. No substitutions were offered and the wait staff seemed indifferent. Hoping just a one time incident as I am a fan of the restaurant.

    Staff was super welcoming, friendly and accommodating— We asked split our dishes and wine and they were willing to do it. Place is wonderful re decor. Felt the food could have been a higher standard while I loved the combinations the bets were over cooked and the veggie pasta could have had more complexity/depth. I would go again because the experience overall was very very good
