Sommelier Christian is one of the best in the City, period. Nice Matin has a vast wine list and he really knows his way around it. For the second time he selected a superb, perfect bottle for us at the right price. We have been going to Nice Matin for years, but lately the food is just getting better and better! Duck and cherries always a fave, and the devilled eggs with trout roe are delish.
Unfortunately the service was really bad, hard to get silverware and I do not recommend the oatmeal. It is a bowl of brown sugar - usually love the place, not sure what is going on.
Always delighted by food here. The Covid inspire outdoor dining is awfully close to traffic and of some safety concern and producers an unpleasant traffic noise level. Not their fault and their only option...however loud noise level inside has always been a problem too.
I love eating here because it always meets or exceeds expectations. The food, service and ambience (eating outdoors is wonderful).
We were seated outside in front of the building. It was a lovely dinner and the food was great. It’s a nice atmosphere, you are on the street so there is occasionally noise from buses and motorcycles, etc. One minor issue is that the barrier between us and the rest of the sidewalk was a bit wobbly. The special thing of the evening was our wait person who was so fabulous, taking care of us even though we lingered for three hours! I would say the best service I’ve had in New York city in years.
Excellent food. Service was great. We were there for brunch and they let us stay at the table for a long time while we were chatting, so we didn’t feel rushed. Only negative was outdoor dining had little shade in the middle of the day, so it was very hot and sunny.
Food was very good. They seated us outside as requested > the servers were friendly , helpful and efficient. They have lots of outdoor seating which is a must right now and they were most accommodating. No problem reserving an outdoor table. Would definitely return.
Especially appreciated the fact that they were flexible about our having to change to a later reservation time and they didn’t rush us out.
Salty chicken. Brand salad and lousy service for the money. It needs improvement.
Haven’t been here in awhile even though we live super close by. My cocktail ale Pampelmousse was delicious. The chickpea fries were yummy. The mussels I ordered were so salty it was inedible. I never send food back but they remade it graciously and it was so much better. I’ll be back.
One of the best upper west places
Hands down the best duck I’ve ever had. Mussels were nice, with perfectly crispy French fries. The restaurant space itself feel like a very warm and inviting place to spend some time. Great place!
My first time for a meal and it was great. Service had room for improvement but really enjoyable overall. Definitely going back.
Its our go to in the neighborhood. The staff is always wonderful, and the food always good.
Had a late dinner after going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Sat outside, had a lovely meal, got to watch some hustle and bustle after a long dry spell. Plus, great wait staff.
Sorry to say that an old neighborhood favorite was a terrible disappointment last night. All of our food was either tasteless or just not prepared well - and not nearly of the high quality I’ve experienced from them in the past. Really hoping it was an off night and a result of the current later shortages. Will try again soon and hope for a better meal.
Always a consistently delicious meal.
My time at Nice Matin was again LOVELY, thank you!
The food was fantastic and the staff was very friendly.
I was disappointed to see that they were not requiring proof of vaccination for persons dining indoors as required by NYC.
Lovely place, delicious food, very over-stretched service
Food and ambiance were great! I felt
Ryan was a terrific waiter!
Superb food, great service. The soup alone is worth a return trip.
A fantastic experience! Delicious food, beautiful presentation, fantastic ambiance, and incredible service. A wonderful neighborhood gem!!
II've been here many times. It''s always a pleasure. It's not cheap so I can't go all the time nor is it so prohibitive that I have to wait for the once a year treat. But great food and delightful service.
Great food, helpful and pleasant service and good sidewalk cafe experience especially for New York City!
We took our 20 year old granddaughter to Nice Matin for lunch. The food and service was excellent. My wife wanted to have a BLT sandwich but it was not on the menu. She asked the waitress if she could have it and the waitress went to check with the chef and return to say yes. She said the sandwich was delicious. I had the summer salad which was just right for a light lunch.
Everything was very good including the service.
Excellent end of summer menu - Delicious omelettes, superb sorbets. Socca crepes will be entree next time.
Good French Bistro food. A bit noisy inside although not full. Host did not check our proof of vaccination until we asked her to.
Always very good and consistent. One of our favorite restaurants on the UWS.
We were there for lunch - and the salads and omelets were perfect. We were checked for vaccination cards at the door. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. A very enjoyable and relaxing lunch!
We haven’t been to Nice Matin since our last trip to NYC a couple of years ago. We were hoping that it would be as good as we remembered. We were not disappointed! The food, wine, cocktails and service were all first rate. We had a nice roomy booth to enjoy a leisurely dinner. Our waiter was attentive, pleasant and efficient. We’ll be back soon!
Food and service were excellent. Actually able to have a conversation!
We had a fabulous time and even the weather cooperated!
The duck is always perfect as is the fish.
overall food was good, croquette was salty but drinks and entrees were superb!
Outstanding service. Our hostess and server and table runner were all very polite and sweet. Food was excellent. The hummus was a surprise - so much more delicious than your average. Salmon with chickpeas was super. And the Saint-Tropez was an excellent starter. Nice Matin is it reliable favorite spot. But I haven't been since the pandemic began last year. What a welcome return to such friendly service!
