Nice Matin has a wonderful menu.
We could not choose, so shared several items with my daughter:
devil eggs with caviar and chickpea sticks with dipping sauce and petite salad Nicoise and crepes and braised rib and cheese.
Every one superb! (They were happy to send home the entrees we could not finish.)
The wait staff was pleasant and accommodating without being intrusive.
The room is welcoming and comfortable.
There is outdoor dining which consists of small three sided rooms with heaters which looked very nice.
We will do that next time. We will definitely return.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
