Nice Matin is one of NYC's outstanding, informal restaurants. The lunch menu is simple but creative. Dinner fare is superb. What sets Nice Matin apart from most restaurants is its magnificent staff, who are amiable, helpful, knowledgeable, polite, eager to please.
Nice Matin is a gem.
We ate two meals at Nice Matin. The service both times was excellent. Servers were very professional and timely. The restaurant took appropriate Covid precautions. The lunch and dinner menus were limited. The wine options were also limited but we found a good French red. My wife enjoyed both meals. I thought the food was average and not particularly French. The tuna sandwich that I had for lunch was the better of the two meals. The dinner ravioli was nothing special.
Great service and good food. Overhead heating in the outdoor structure keeps you comfortably warm even when it's cold outside.
Dining at NICE MATIN is always a pleasant experience. We had a lovely new waitress, Amanda, at our table last night. Lucky us! She was lovely, charming and attentive. We dine here frequently and have never been disappointed.
It’s fine, pleasant, and thoroughly unremarkable..
Thank you for having comfortable heated out door dining.
A great brunch…
Nice matin has really good food but it sometimes a little loud
The service here has always been good and it still is. The food is very predictable so you are rarely surprised - in a bad way. I do always recommend Nice Matin to people because of this. That's not to say that this is boring, not by a long shot. Rather it's what you expect from a brasserie. And they make a nice dirty martini.

Thanksgiving Dinner. Excellent food and service.
We had Thanksgiving dinner here (we’re in from out of town). We sat outside and it was plenty warm! The food was amazing, not a single bite was off. The service was nonstop and we never waited long for anything. I’d love to go back one day!
Thanksgiving tradition continues! 11/10 recommend
Loved it. Great location, atmosphere, food and service
Lovely waitperson, excellent meal, nice ambience
Food is generally excellent. Service a bit slow in morning. Unlike most items at Nice Matin, the hot chocolate was truly AWFUL. Watered down and clearly not made correctly. Otherwise, excellent.
Perfect brunch atmosphere. Great food and lively vibe
Very average restaurant with slightly below average food and very disinterested service. You can do much better in the area
I can’t believe the cooks served the steak To my husband yesterday. Cold, tasteless, over cooked. And nobody came to touch our table, not the manager, not the server who forgot our sides. He didn’t even come over to touch the table. A young lady came to clear our plates and then we were able to tell her we DID NOT ENJOY THAT STEAK AT ALL. it must’ve been a switch over from shifts Just because you take it off the check doesn’t mean that’s the end of it. Please work on your steak temps.
This is a great breakfast place. First time I had breakfast there and will go back often. Best waiter I ever had there. Food was exceptional. Sitting outside under the heat lamps made it perfect.
Everything was perfect, it was just REALLY WARM inside
Good menu. Drinks and portions seem to be getting smaller as prices increase.
A little too noisy for my taste but the food is decent and is good value for what it costs. They did not check vaccination records.
One of the best meals ever ! New young chef is awesome…casoule
This reliable bistro is always a pleasure for lunch or brunch.
They've done a great job with safe out door dining.
An excellent spot for fine dining and good conversation
Eggs Benedict were outstanding! Perfectly prepared with the right amount of salad and excellent potatoes, crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. Staff was terrific -- efficient, friendly, fun. Totally enjoyed myself while entertaining a friend for her birthday.
Very accomodating with seating. Waiter was responsive & kind. Had the eggs benedict w salmon. Delicious combo. All fresh ingredients.
I killed a beetle walking across table.Told the two workers at front of restaurant,
We made a return visit to Nice Matin after many years, and were pleased to find it was still a lovely dining experience. The scene is lively but not overwhelming and rackety. The service was first class. The menu and wine offerings were all very appealing. Especially delightful - a bacon gougere with goat cheese as an appetizer, and a chocolate soufflé dessert. Reliably excellent and delightful!
Had a brunch lunch with dear old friends. Love love love Nice-Matin! It’s always fabulous!
My father was in town. We are all still a little scared of inside dining so we ate outside. I was impressed by the terrific service and the waiters hustle between the street and restaurant. We have been come to Nice Matin for years and I think the food has actually gotten better. Everyone loved their meal. We will be back.
Took my family to breakfast, although the wait was a little long, 3 out 4 of our meals were spot on (omelet, waffles and shakshoukha). The Nutella/banana brioche french toast had a reduction of some sort that made it a bit soggy, although I tasted it and it was still pretty damn good. I'd give it another shot, generally a good meal but a little soft on service and execution.
Fabulous meal -tender delicious venison (special) and tasty broccoli and cheddar soup (special)
Perfect bottle of Rouget Echezeaux 2014
Excellent chocolate soufflé
Had a very pleasant (and delicious) meal at Nice Matin. We chose to sit outside and the heaters/ enclosure made for a pleasant experience improved upon by extremely attentive waitstaff.
Had a wonderful outdoor breakfast! Good food and staff and nice outdoor space !
Nice-Matin dedicates itself to upholding the best traditions of classic French bistro cuisine. They are on spot!
Outdoor seating of course means street noise. The food was as always very good. The service was abysmal. We waited for what felt like hours, and certainly was well after everyone seated after us was served. The waiter, who was otherwise very nice, mumbled an excuse about the salad nicoise being slower to arrive?????
$16 glass of wine tasted like vinegar. Salmon had poor texture and taste. Anything extra was a la carte—not worth it.
Love this elegant restaurant - and only discovered it this year after living on the UWS since 1972. So far have had the salmon and duck confit and could have dined all night. Each server and wait person is well mannered, perfectly cleaned, knowledgeable, and helpful. A perfect restaurant that fulfills all needs. Go!
