Fabulous Father’s Day Brunch experience.
We have been several times for dinner.
We had special dietary needs, and they were very accommodating.
Gracious service, and delicious food and drink in a relaxed setting.
Can’t wait to return!

We started with the hummus and naan bread which was really good but I wish the naan was included with the hummus....both are separate charges. Then we ordered the beets entree, snap peas dumplings, and gnocchi. They were all good but the dumplings and gnocchi were extremely small portions. For example the gnocchi entree came with maybe 8 tiny pieces of gnocchi and cost $28. I didn’t like how it tasted like the skin/outer layer was still on the beets. The sauce for the dumplings was spicy and really good but again the entree came with like 6 tiny dumplings. I don’t think this restaurant was the best value but the food was good.

Incredible - inventive, tasty dishes. I was recommended this place by several vegetarians and it did not disappoint - my meat eating boyfriend was also very impressed. Waiter had recommended one appetiser, one side and two mains in all which we thought was excessive. Would just go for one each between two people, along with one of their interesting cocktails each.

Everything we had at Nix was inventive and delicious. We left satisfied but not overly full as the food is substantial but somehow still light.
We have been to most of the to rated vegetarian places in NYC and this up there at or near the top for us.
Even our 10 year old twin omnivores loved it.
Highly recommended for vegetarians, vegans and omnivores.

The food is always amazing. The raw veg are incredibly fresh and crisp. Dishes are inventive in the best sense: not creative for the sake of unbridled creativity, but for taste and interest.

Wonderful Menu
Execution of the ideas fail.
Shiitake Mushroom wraps the mushrooms to chunky to wrap. 4 lettuce leaves were not enough. Mint was old and wilted! Shiso leaves were old and had brown bits. Jicama sticks were rubbery not crisp. Fail on the whole dish.

English Pea Dumplings were chalky and wrapper hard and too thick. I tasted no ginger, ONLY VINEGAR LOTS OF VINEGAR, so much my mouth puckered from over use of vinegar. basically bland and boring and horrible texture.

Worst was cauliflower tempura Buns , which no where on menu or from servers description was it told that it would be covered in a sweet sour thick tomato sauce which made tempura soggy and like a stew. We thought it would be tempura as described on menu??? NOT. Again only 4 tiny buns to put the stewed cauliflower in and should of had 8 buns to be able to eat all the stewed cauliflower.. the sauce should of been on side. No where was it mentioned it would be drenched in sauce. My guest has a sensitive digestive issue and can not eat tomatoes.
The waitress was cold, uneducated on menu. She was rude from the moment we asked for lemons with water. For the prices in this restaurant service does not at all reflect. Still sitting at table they removed water carafe and we had 1 empty glass and never replaced our waters than someone ended up taking my water glass completely without asking if we needed more water. We were excessively thirsty from salty sweet cauliflower stew that was SUPPOSED to be Tempura.
This whole place was a fail. Kinda dirty restaurant needs a new paint job as around the edges its dirty.
Way way way overpriced. Terrible food. Terrible Service. Everyone working in front of house were very unfriendly.. so at least one thing: everything was bad!!!

Food was delicious and service was attentive . Creative and nicely presented vegetarian dishes. Deserves their one Michelin star for great flavors with vegetables. The restaurant was long and narrow, so it felt rather noisy, otherwise an excellent experience.

This is probably my 8th visit at least. The food and flavors are always amazing and preparation of well known ingredients combined in unique flavors outstanding. The menu could get a little tired even though seasonal changes - would love to see more innovation over time if achievable. I liked the fresh "market" small salad plates for that reason - and they were very tasty.
All in all a neighborhood treasure and I do hope you stay around a long longe time.

The 3 of us went to celebrate a co-worker's good bye. She was vegan, so was another co-worker, but I am a meat eater. Speaking for myself, The Patty melt with caramelized onions, swiss cheese, house thousand island 17 was so good, I did not even realize there was no meat.

Almost Everything is spicy even when the manu doesn’t specify it.
Some dishes are just not worth the price, for example the white asparagus dish or the half avocado. In these two cases the dish is too simple for the price.

The food here is inventive and exceptional, some of the best in the city. What is more, they really go out of their way to cater to people with food restrictions. Indeed, they do not simply eliminate things from their normal dishes so that the diner with allergies must eat flavorless food: they develop recipes and offer advice that make for a fabulous dining experience, even if the diner has lots of dietary requirements.

We had dinner there this week, a group of 4. Food was great, best Vegan I've had in NYC, service was a bit spotty, not at the same level as the food. The Sommelier was outstanding, he offered great advice and service.

We tried about 6 dishes, all were very good.

The cauliflower was the best dish, I could eat this every night.

Need to go back an try more items on the menu.

I am not a vegetarian and I absolutely enjoyed my meal. My friend is vegan and her meal was excellent as well. They do need to work on a few services issues. The service isn't bad it is just uneven. The service tries to be attentive in some respects and then lapses in others.
