The lamb salad is delicious. Perfect dish to share.
Both persons having salmon were served under-cooked fish. Branzino was dry. Person with couscous said it was inedible. Getting servers attention to report was very difficult. Too load to have conversations. Would not go back.
Amazing menu variety and choices, everything very flavorful!
Nice Matin is one of our go to places on the UWS. Always consistently good with a good bar and an amazing wine list. Good staff and service too.
Always reliable. Good meal and great neighborhood spot.
Food was great but lights were too bright
Food was delicious!!! I unfortunately have celiac disease so im limited to where i can eat, this restaurant has a completely gluten free menu, the food was healthy and full of flavor, Service was amazing too, cant wait to go back!!
Perfect ... say no more
Food was great, our server was lovely.
We are regulars at Nice Matin. Great food. Especially like that side dishes to regular entrees are changed up—giving variety & making it worth being “regulars”. Great cocktails & wine list. Also, spectacular non-alcoholic cocktails which, our guest who has an allergy to alcohol, raved about! Wonderful servers and service! Definitely a neighborhood gem!
Never disappointed except for the escalation in the prix fixe dinner and general overall increase in prices. Service has always been good and the food remains better than average as far as French fare is concerned. We'll be back.
Overpriced and overrated. The food had in-eatable pieces of gristle. The prices are very high for such simple fare. Why does the UWS have such poor choices for eating out. Similar restaurants elsewhere, French Roast and Le Monde are better.
Very good neighborhood restaurant. Food is quite good, nice menu selection for a variety of eaters. Beautiful, albeit imposing wine list, but the restaurant has a sommelier to help you through it. The only real complaint I have is that the noise level made conversation difficult.
The first thing you taste in bouillabaisse should not be potato and the shrimp should be peeled. Very disappointed in this dish. When serving bacon with a burger it should be cooked, not look like it was boiled. Wine should not cost $16 a glass. The service is excellent here but I won't be back.
A favorite neighborhood haunt. Dependable, enjoyable and I don't leave hungry.
Food is O.K., but nothing exceptional. For me, personally, almost every item has something I dislike or don't eat - e.g. fennel, kale, bacon, polenta, etc. Why do restaurants insist on super unique menus without some basic foods - only the trout and the hamburger (deleted of bacon, aioli, etc.) are such foods. Place was quiet early, but soon got very noisy. Although I can recommend this restaurant, it wi with the preceding reservations.I have been here several times before, although not very recently, and do not recall such a menu in the past.
thoroughly enjoyed our dinner
we hade wild salmon, duck and hanger steak, tuna tartar and beets and we enjoyed all the food
We had such a nice dinner at NICE MATIN! The food was interesting and delicious. The restaurant is appealing and has a wonderful ambiance. The vanilla creme brulee was incredible!
Nice Matin is a consistently good restaurant offering delicious South of France food, with touches of North Africa in the menu. The ambiance is warm and unhurried and the service is stellar. It's a treasured stop whenever we come to New York.
We arrived at 7:45 PM. The sound level was still "boisterous" as I had read in a review. After 8:00 PM it slowly became more subdued. The food and service was superb. We look forward to next time.
The staff was so kind. The sommelier is skilled and gracious . She recommended a lovely wine. And when we quietly asked to move to a different table , she made that happen. We will keep going back to a great restaurant.
Valentine’s Day dinner. Very romantic. A little loud, but the place was packed. Wonderful service and even better food. Lovely place!
I have enjoyed this restaurant a few times over the years, as it is not near my area of town. This time the meal was truly exceptional. Both the food (potato crusted branzino and the cod with arugula) and cocktails were really fantastic! I will definitely return soon.
Excellent quality of foods and good value for money.
Great French food act affordable (for New York) prices. We definitely will come back.
Love this restaurant. Consistently excellent
From the staff to the food, everything about the experience of dining at Nice Matin was outstanding. We chose Nice Matin based on their restaurant week menu choices. We were not disappointed. The Parmesan crusted lamb chops were cooked perfectly. The sole Veronique was wonderful. The apple tart and Meyer lemon tart were a perfect ending to the meal. We will d3finitely go back.
The restaurant was packed and a bit cramped, even on a Thursday night, but the service was attentive and the food delicious. Multiple vegetarian options for appetizer, only one for entree, but it was hearty, filling, and appropriately priced.
Excellent service with quality food at reasonable prices (for NYC). Perfect amount of time between bread/drinks/starters/main course. Had passed Nice Matin hundreds of times in the last few years and this was the first time I went in - already looking foward to the second.
WAS HERE FOR RESTAURANT WEEK - LUNCH.
ALL OF THEIR CHOICES WERE THEIR BEST - INCLUDING ANY OF THEIR DESSERTS .
Combination of excellent food, great ambience and thoughtful service,
Creative cooking and a very nice and extensive wine list.
Nice Matin exceeded all our expectations. We definitely will go back there for a delicious French meal.
I've been here many times. The menu always has interesting choices and it's good value for the money
waited 40 min. for food & then took it to go. day before for lunch, food came quickly( fair ) and service terrible. had to wait 10 min. for oil & vinegar.
Nice Matin does not disappoint. First of all, the hostesses are careful to give you the type of table you want, in my case, quiet. Secondly, the food is dependable, especially the fish dishes, which are nicely cooked. I tried their "Italian salad" as an appetizer for the first time and it was very good. This was part of a nice prix fixe menu.The sommelier gave good advice about a Gaillac red wine. Because it was a cold Monday evening, the restaurant was quieter than usual, which suited us to a T. Great neighborhood asset.
Lovely restaurant. Food and ambiance excellent. Love eating at Nice Matin. Only problem is the bathroom. Dirty and smells.
Food was great. Everything we ordered was flavorful and fresh. There were some deliciously creative options and also the good old faves like steak frites which I always love.
Service was amazing, super attentive. We had show tickets and they made sure we were on schedule without being rushed. Very knowledgeable wait staff.
Now on to the most surprising part of the meal. The wine list and Sommelier! If you are a wine lover, and let’s face it, most of us are, then a visit here is in order just for the experience of the Sommelier visiting your table. So knowledgeable and friendly. But don’t let the fancy word scare you away! The price list on the , oh 2500 bottles I think he said, runs the gamut. You can enjoy affordable and recommended wines or go for a special occasion splurge. I’m sorry I forgot his name but either way he will make you feel like royalty no matter what you order and guide you to the perfect choice.
Next time we in the area we will be back.
The food and service were phenomenal, unique pairings and the cocktails were delicious and unique. Loved it will go again. So why 4 out of 5 stars? The restroom -- only two and not well maintained.
