What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.7

Nix is a grown-up, entirely vegetarian and vegan establishment, in an area near Union Square previously lacking in both such kinds of places.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Nix was everything I was hoping to find in a vegetarian dining experience. The food was BEYOND DELICIOUS. The sweet potato & ginger dumplings had me speechless. If I lived nearby I’d be in everyday just for them! Our server, Norah, was very attentive, super cool and fun. The Nix cocktail is so good that my best friend and I each had 3! Definitely check out this sweet spot.

We had a group of 4 people and we enjoyed ourselves immensely! The service was great and the food was out of this world! Only one of us were vegan and the rest of our party loved all the offerings. We all left completely satisfied. The menu is so creative and delicious. Loved the setting and look forward to going back. :)

Reading through AFAR and Time Out NYC, found this tiny treasure that is non-meat but is a one-star Michelin. What a thrill for me, after 50 years of being a vegetarian. An excellent menu that was totally satisfying to our meateaters. And excellent service. I definitely recommend reservations.

Awesome food. Some of the dishes were spicy which was great. They took 20 minutes to get us a table. Apart from that, everything else was great.
The bolder, main course dishes - we were told we would need 2 for 2 people, but one dish would have been sufficient. The portions were good enough for 2. I will surely recommend this place.

This vegetarian restaurant is a little pricey but so worth it. It was suggested by our waiter that we consider sharing everything which turned out to be the best way to experience their gourmet vegetarian offerings. You do need to be open to eatting "vegetarian" but the food is so good and creative that is the main "take away".

The server we had seemed completely bothered by the fact that he was working. We didn't see a smile on his face all night. We saw him once when we placed our order and not again until we were done with our entrees. I had a wild mushroom polenta which was bland and also undercooked. Nothing we had was special or worth noting. It was overpriced for what it was. Super disappointed.

This is a very special restaurant that's worth a trip. The service is impeccable and everyone on staff is very well educated about all of the fabulous things to eat and drink. You have to try the jicama ribbon. it's easy to get Jaden about restaurants in New York City but this one is special. They have a vegetarian or vegan menu.

Not sure why everything is VERY spicy. I was extremely disappointed as Nix has so many great reviews. The bread and hummus were as ordinary as anything you can get from a supermarket or cheap spot. (Charging for bread is ridiculous). They try to get you to order much more than is needed. We had the dumplings...SPICY and the cauliflower bao... SPICY AS HELL! Dessert was fine, albeit bland pear ginger tart. Wine selection is too pricey as well. Definitely not high up on vegetarian/vegan places I've been and loved. Won't be returning or recommending...
