Nix is a grown-up, entirely vegetarian and vegan establishment, in an area near Union Square previously lacking in both such kinds of places.
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.
It was absolutely amazing and worth the price. Even if you’re not a vegetarian/vegan this place is worth a trip!! The cocktails were fantastic, as well!!
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!!!
The place it’s quite unique and the food it’s heaven. The chef it’s amazing and the whole personal very friendly. I should come back again.
Really good vegan and vegetarian plates to share. My wife and I have dined at all the top restaurants in New York, and Nix is at the top of our list.
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.
Nix is always amazing!! Food is excellent and service very attentive. Every time I go is a 5 stars experience
My friend and I enjoyed our experience at the NIX.
I have already been, so I recommended it. I was glad she enjoyed the food, service, and atmosphere. We will be returning.
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 food was amazing!
Great place to eat to not only to vegans like me. Unbelievable food.
Some of the best food I've ever eaten. Simple foods like avocado dip, labneh, and gnocchi are transformed here. HIGHLY recommend the english pea dumplings and the cauliflower tempura steamed buns. Excellent service.
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.
Good food, okay setvice
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.
A pre birthday celebration at our favorite restaurant. The food was excellent as was the service. Wow. The flavors are perfect. Great team ❤️❤️❤️
food was delicious and interesting and inventive. Service was not great, but will definitely go back again.
We had a wonderful brunch here to celebrate a friend's moving out of NYC. Our server had great banter with us and great recommendations. Sad the walnut buns are off the menu but the egg in a whole is still delicious!
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.
Great all around! The starters and lighter section of the menu were amazing. Great cocktails and service. Atmosphere is what you make it (date, birthday, friends or taking the parents out).
Good food, great presentation, but extremely pricey.
Food was very good, service was excellent and many options to select from for all types of Diets.
We love Nixs!! This restaurant has great vegan and vegetarian options. The drinks are A+.
One of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. Perfection 👌
Food was very nice with lot of different Vegetarian options. The place was too noisy though which I did not like
Surprisingly diverse and creative menu. Excellent choice for both vegans and vegetarians.
Very friendly environment.
Wow! This was a very memorable meal. The best we’ve had in years. Can’t wait until we return to NYC.
The food and service were superb! Looking forward to going back again.
Had a reunion at Nix and they gave us a corner as requested where we could speak without having too much noise. The lighting here is fantastic, they were extremely accommodating with our last minute modification requests for the food and all the ingredients were fresh.
My experience at Nix far exceeded my expectations. The service was impeccable and the food was OUTSTANDING. Had a wonderful lunch and am very much looking forward to going back for dinner. The combination of ingredients in every dish was perfectly balanced and so tasty!
Good service and beautiful deco, had a great time hanging out with friends during lunch
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.
This place is great and has amazing options for both vegans and vegetarians. Came here with my boyfriend for his birthday and the service was great :) Every single dish was worth it.
this is my 3rd time visiting and every time it's as good or better than the last.. food is amazing, staff are delightful and overall it's a great place to eat and enjoy all that veg can offer..
