PRIME HANGER STEAK
grilled romaine, creamy garlic - lemon dressing, parmesan, baguette crisps
green goddess dressing, red onion, avocado
dry aged NY strip steak, béarnaise sauce
The service was excellent! Food need work. We took our 4 years old daughter there for her Birthday. It definitely not a restaurant for kids, more of a date nite kind of a place, fine dinning with nice decor.
Chickpea fries surprised me. I don’t like chickpea in general, but the fries were delicious.
Octopus risotto needs work, octopus was dry and chewy.
Steak was just ok.
Mussels with fries were nice, but sausage in the sauce was dry and sauce itself needs work.
Steak was just bla.
According to our server bread pudding was not on the menu and it should not be there. Bread pudding was super dry and flavorless.
Crème brûlée was not settled and sugar on top was not ready.
I’ve never been to France, I hope food there is better then at Nice Marin. Just like the name - place is just nice, but not good or great.
Only because of service I would give this place 4 stars.
We enjoyed our meal at Nice Matin. One guest did the restaurant week menu and had the bucatini, branzino and apple tarts. She loved them all. I had the gnocchi app and it’s the best gnocchi I’ve had other than my grandmother’s. My salmon was perfectly rare as ordered and on tasty bed of kale and navy beans. The pomme frites are excellent as well. Extensive wine list although large percentage very pricey. Great service.
Had a great time and food was delicious along with great service!
Staff is incredible and the food is as well. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a French restaurant.
Chef Eric is very dynamic and continues to introduce new exciting menus.
Reliable neighborhood favorite— great staff and wonderful food.
Lovely first-time visit for NYC Restaurant Week. Great menu ensured all the prix fixe choices were winners from start to finish.
It’s a neighborhood favorite. It’s never to be undervalued.
A reliable local spot. Good food, good service. I love the atmosphere.
Roger, Jonathan, and Aymane!!
Roger, You assigned nice table near window and enjoyed looking outside covered with snow.
Jonathan, Your service was excellent!!
Thank you for your recommendation of the appetizer and entree.
Aymane, your attentive service was also much appreciated.
The homey interior and nice table setting, flowers on the table, lightings are warm and lovely.
Enjoyed the soufflé with coffee.
Will visit again soon.
Love the way the restaurant has set up covid distancing and separation. I felt comfortable and relaxed and we could thoroughly enjoy our meal and company
Restaurant was totally empty & they sat a couple right next to me. I moved my seat. There was a promotion for paying with Mastercard & when I presented it at the end of a pleasant mean they said it could not go through. Had to pay with another card. They never gave me my receipt.
Nice menu and good food but a little overpriced.
Place is lovely, service is good, food is average, a bit overprice for what it is but would go back.
Outdoor heating set up is great — even in Jan!
Great food and incredible wine list
OpenTable needs to add a toggle options for whether or not one's review is for inside or outside dining. :)
Things like "Noise Level" and "Ambience" are obviously rated on a different relative scale in one's judgement depending on indoor or outdoor dining!
Our most recent experience at Nice Matin for outdoor dining was really good. The server was excellent attentive but never intrusive. The hosts were very nice as well.
There are a lot of ugly parklets for outdoor dining in NYC amid the pandemic, but Nice Matin's is in the top 20% certainly, and more importantly, the heat lamps work well!
The food was good. The head chef is gradually rolling out new menu items, by the way. So, if you have not been to Nice Matin for quite some time (as of the date of this writing, of course), you may want to give it a try. So far, the changes are more among the starters than mains.
A special accolade for the truffle-cheddar burger w/ frites. It was excellent as always and the frites were perfectly done. The dessert, which I *think* was new but I'm not sure, the spice cake with ice cream, was lovely.
Nice Matin remains one of our favorite places and we love it
Alas, prices have noticeably increased! But this is common also everywhere one dines in NYC. It's definitely affected how much we dine out, more so than have any of the restrictions or risks directly related to the pandemic itself.
(The skyrocketing prices at restaurants is just one more thing fueling inflation and "lux-ifying" NYC and especially Manhattan. It's as if every aspect of changes to the city during the pandemic has only accelerated the already present trends towards turning the city into a playground for the top 10%. Another, different example: The ave. NYC co-op apartment sale price Dec. 2020 to Dec. 2021 increased from $1.13 million to $1.41 million. Condo ave. from $2.49 million to $3.2 million. While the number of active listings Dec. YOY was down 17%,)
Extremely mediocre food. Omelette slightly undercooked and side salad was salty. Asked repeatedly for bread. No spoon provided for soup. Never had this problem there before.
The food portions have shrunk and so have the drinks
Excellent service from all staff. The meal was very good including the suggested wine pairing as well as the suggested bourbon for desert. Price was reasonable for the Upper West Side. Want to try brunch next.
Wonderful sophisticated homey atmosphere for a post holiday dinner with our son prior to returning home.
I usually love Nice Matin. I always get the salad nicoise. Today it was really cold so I decided to have the Pistou Soup. It was delicious but came out like the bowl was half full. It wasn't expensive but I felt like I got gipped.
Also the bread basket was just two small sourdough rolls that you could barely tear apart.
Been there many times. Food is consistent. It was less crowded than usual so very quiet
Always a sure thing, good food, good service, good house wine.
Nice Matin is one of Manhattan's finest bistros. Located on the NW corner of 79th Street & Amsterdam Avenue, year-round outdoor dining is fun and people watching is excellent. Indoors as well as outdoors, the staff is attentive, pleasant, and always smiling. The menu is original and changes with the seasons. The quality of the food is excellent and consistent. The atmosphere is New York City-Paris.
Dining at Nice Matin is a pleasure.
Quality dining experience and solid, friendly service.
Very good sandwiches for lunch. Spacious. Unhurried.
Wait staff not around. Hard to find them to take order or bring silverware
New years eve
You can always depend on Nice Matin for a delicious meal and excellent service.
Fabulous and warm outdoor heating!
Memorable Christmas lunch and best regards to the Chef!!! Great service and delicious food...BRAVO!!!!
We went on the early side for a Christmas Eve feast. It was really great. Everyone was very attentive, and it wasn't too loud. The food was great especially our Mediterranean ( I would call Jerusalem) fried artichokes. They are miniature artichokes. Things probably deteriorate as the place gets more packed. We left about 8 PM
Food is not what it was
Poor options for anyone with a stroller
Love their outside seating area.
The heat lamps are right over the table and are very strong. Service as always is excellent.
We have been eating outside in the comfortable heated cabana all year —enjoying the consistently excellent food and service. Heartily recommend Nice Matin!
It is a very lovely French Restaurant on the Upper West Side.
Enjoyed overall, usual. Terrific wine list. Only critical observation was that the entree size pasta course (lobster ravioli our guest selected ) was tiny- there were 4-5 raviolis total. Disappointing.
Went to Nice Matin twice in one week! Once with friends, then family. The food is excellent, we all loved our meal. Great service and pretty place. Will definitely go back!
