What Insiders Are Saying
A old-school-meets-new-school diner in Chinatown.
Food and service were excellent but decor has gone a bit shabby.
Great place to go near Chinatown. Quick and easy and not crazy expensive. Loved the Chicken & Biscuits! and that they open early. Many places near Chinatown open later on weekends.
Service was unreasonably slow and food is just okay—nothing special and overpriced.
Food tasted good but it was served cold. Chilled Eggs Benedict is not terribly appetizing. They must have left it out for awhile as our meal was a bit of a wait. Breakfast is usually pretty quick. Another part of our order was also incorrect. And the table next to us ordered bagels but were delivered a plate of bacon.
Made us wait 25 minutes past reservation time before seating us. Tiny portions, high prices. Food okay. Service almost insultingly bad. Had to literally get up to go to the bar to ask for more coffee after all waiters averting eye contact for twenty minutes.
Everything was great! Food was simple and comforting for a Sunday breaky. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the breakfast sandwich came on a plain kaiser roll when I was hoping for the poppy seed :)
Our kids loved their birthday breakfast - and we appreciated the excellent service and the yummy food!
The food was very average, not original; the service below par; the ambience unpleasant, music way too loud. I shall never return.
Absolutely loved this place!! Highly recommended’n
Interesting to see this mid-century, American diner in a Chinatown building. Very nice decor inside. Most tables are booths, so very comfortable seating. Little cafe nook in the very front near hostess stand. Didn't get to get a drink, but bartenders look like they know what they're doing and would definitely try their cocktails next time. Overall, a slow Saturday night for this little restaurant. Doesn't seem like it gets very busy.
Came during Restaurant Week, but ended up ordering from the normal menu. Salmon chowder was very good, but maybe too much potato. Mushroom bruschetta with a quail egg was delicious, and I don't like mushrooms. Hanger steak salad was good. Everything was super flavourful and impressive. I hate dull tasting steaks, and my rib eye was incredible. The food was so flavourful it got kind of heavy/salty towards the end, so I couldn't finish.
Would definitely try desserts next time, but I was too full. Service was nice. Even the guy bussing our table was very friendly (and cute).
This is not exactly a classic diner (it's too modern) but retains the spirit. Excellent food in a very pleasant setting.
This restaurant has very good food, often taking a special twist on typical diner food to bring it a class up.
I had the cashew bowl which was absolutely delicious. Want to go back just for that!
Great night out. Food was excellent, impeccable service. We had the fixed menu and everything was delicious.
Our lunch was delicious, very cool decor. Would definitely return!
Everything was perfect, thank you :)
I've been here twice in the last month. Great cocktails and creative and tasty bar food, plus a lovely, delicious dinner menu. We had a GF vegetarian, a vegetarian and two omnivores in our party and we all loved our food. The waiter and bartender were both great as well. I wish more people knew about Nickle and Diner!
Sunday brunch was good
Good menu; great food; fun ambiance. I'll definitely be back.
The food and service was very good, although the prices for food are high (but this is in NYC general the case)
Great menu. We could have ordered everything but chose sliders: a good choice.
Fairly quiet at 11:30 on a Wednesday but an hour later every table was taken and very noisy.
A plus for the neighborhood.
The food was delicious, had the hanger steak salad and really enjoyed it.
Great and versatile ambience. Top notch service, high end plating and very balanced flavors. Don't miss the seasonal drinks; it's clear how much care is put into experimenting with flavor profiles.
Love u guys
Service was really bad: we received the “sides” after we had finished the mains. The dessert arrives before the sides... we had to ask twice for every single thing (coffee, sides, hot chocolate...).
Had Sunday brunch with adult children, overall great experience! Staff was very friendly and food was amazing! Make sure you have the classic egg sandwich, yolk oozes out of big poppy seed Kaiser roll with smoked bacon and ham. Best ever!
Food overall was just OK. Service was subpar. They kept coming around and tried to take away our food and clear the table. It seemed like they were trying to rush us to leave (we didn't even sit there for an hour yet). There was no line up at the door so that was weird.
Service was great! They gave us our own room and we were able to play our own music! Would definitely go again :)
Absolutely amazing! Waiter was such a great, fun person too
The kale cashew bowl is AMAZING!!
Everyone there is so friendly!! Celebrated my friend’s birthday. It was the best!
Amazing service and food
We were seated for 20 minutes with no service.
I've been here a few times and somehow the experience got worse. The seats have obvious wear and tear, and the service is very imbalanced.
Great beautiful space with delicious food. Highly recommend. Looks new, I hope it takes off!
The food was better than we expected but our waitress left A LOT to be desired.
Expecting a lot more here, all you get is overpriced eggs.
This place is clean, modern and quite. We tried the braised short rib and a pasta, very delicious. The short rib was so tender and full of flavor.
