As a Vegan living in Manhattan, it’s hard to find a “top shelf” Vegan restaurant anywhere. NYC does have a lot of options but most of them are super casual and not a great choice for date night or special occasions. NIX has a great vib as soon as you walk in the front door. Having a separate Vegan and Vegetarian menu is a nice touch.
My favorites was the cauliflower and the dumplings. The mixed drink menu had some unique concoctions which were good (not great).
Miami and LA seem to have better choices for plant-based diets, there is a lot of room for other restaurant owners to get in the high end game in NYC.

Gnocchi was excellent. Service was attentive but they were very busy and we had to wait about 15 minutes for our table despite having a reservation. Galette was tasty but the crust was a bit overdone.

The food is excellent but I think they are trying to overoptomize their seating. The reservation email clearly stated that if we were 10mn late, our table would be gone. We waited for 35mn beyond the hour of our reservation just to get seated. That is ok if you show up unannounced but a bit long when a proper reservation has been made

It’s so hard to find a memorable vegetarian/vegan meal, but Nix delivered! A fantastic meal from the avocado/mint dip and tandoori bread through to the most amazing roasted pineapple dessert. Mussamun curry with yam, Cauliflower hot buns, & dumplings were all amazing. The wines by the glass were delicious and the atmosphere very energetic. Was definitely crowded and reservation was running about 15 mins late for seating, but made up for it in spades with the food. Highly recommend.

The food was excellent. Service from the waitstaff was efficient and friendly. We were given a free dish. The wait to be seated was long despite a reservation, although it worked to our advantage as one of us was late. The place is cramped and loud. I would go back as the food was delicious.

Loved our table, a cute corner booth perfect for 3 people. We had a good time, apart from our server being a bit clumsy in the handling of one of my guests’ allergies. He asked if we were ready to order after we had the menus for about 5 minutes, and we told him we needed a little more time. When he checked in again with us we had a question about one of the dishes, to see if a substitution was possible. When we began to explain that my guest has multiple allergies, he said “you should have told me before, now this will take even longer.” I explained that we had been narrowing down what dishes we thought were possible contenders. He then retorted that “well a lot of dishes have ingredients that aren’t listed on the menu” to which I replied that we all regularly dine in restaurants and understand that. It was just a bit combative for a Michelin starred restaurant, where one would expect that allergies are taken seriously without making one feel burdensome. And by that point, my guest wasn’t really feeling all that welcome. With that said though, the rest of our dinner was smooth sailing. Once we figured out our order, the food was well paced and delicious, and the support staff and manager were all very warm and hospitable, carefully delivering and clearing plates and responsive to our ordering another cocktail from someone other than our server, something that so often falls through the cracks. I would be back to try more on the menu, but my friend with allergies decisively stated she won’t be back.

Every dish was amazing and our server was great. Could not ask for a better NY dining experience. As a plus they have non-alcoholic drinks other than water! Heaven for vegetarians but no carnivores would complain about a meal at Nix.

I was looking for a vegetarian restaurant which was a little bit fancy. Nix was featured in an Eaters article on vegetarian friendly restaurants.

I liked that all the menu was meant to be shared. We ordered vegetable crudités, smoked beets salad, and tofu skin pockets. All the dishes were beautiful and temperature was just right. I love the flavor and texture combinations of the beets salad. Tender beets with creamy sauce and crunchy chickpeas and kale and beets chips.

We ordered maple custard for a dessert. When it was delivered, we were a little disappointed because it looked very plain. But it turned out very good! The custard was super smooth and creamy, and huckleberry sauce had right amount of acidity to cut the richness of the custard.

We enjoyed dining here very much and highly recommend it for someone looking for healthy yet delicious dishes.

Despite leaving the note this was "Special Occasion," we were the forgotten table. Our server basically rarely checked on us - to the point we had to enlist busser (who were SPOT ON amazing and FANTASTIC) or the manager for service.

We even asked to get more drinks and the server never came after 15 minutes. For the price point, its a SUPER easy cash grab. Which segways into the food.

Overall it was fair... very hit or miss. The best thing we had was the Tandoori Bread with Red Pepper dips. A lot of the seasoning was off or didn't work as a fully composed dish. Definitely won't be back.

There is much better vegetarian and vegan food around the city - especially at that price point

The food was outstanding! The Brussels sprouts were perfect and the squash ravioli was great too! The grilled pineapple was a little oversold. It needs to be pre-ordered, but we thought the balance of flavors was a bit out of sync on the dessert. Otherwise a brilliant dinner and I’m curious to return to try more.

Food was delicious- as always!
Service was good but couldn’t measure up to the waiter who served us the last time.
They carry both a vegan and vegetarian menu.
Would definitely recommend!

Food was mushy and saucy. Fussy food that didn’t add to the taste. The fresh bread and dips were good.

We had a wonderful experience at Nix. We we’re celebrating an anniversary, and Nix began with congratulating us and offering us a glass of bubbles, a beautiful touch. We shared several plates and each was better than the last. We enjoyed a mostly vegan dinner that was so flavorful and beautiful. The presentation was exquisite and each bite was delicious. We will definitely be back when we’re back in NYC! Thanks Nix!

Nix is a vegetarian restaurant that will please even the most avid carnivores. The food is exquisitely seasoned nicely presented and there is something to please every palate. We don't eat there very often because the menu hasn't changed since the restaurant opened and the menu is quite limited.
