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

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

Excellent! Our servers first night and she was wonderful... host was very kind and helped us get a table while waiting for bar seats. Felt a little pricey at the end but would certainly go back

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.

Overall, we had a lovely evening. The hostess seemed to need a bit more training, but our waiter was excellent (attentive, kind, enthusiastic). Fairly limited, but satisfactory wine list and house cocktails. We ordered the vegan tasting menu--the first course (two spreads and crudite) was fresh and tasty, second course (kombucha squash dumplings) were very flavorful and unexpectedly unique, third course (yams and tofu) were a bit overly sweet and oddly textured, respectively, for our tastes. All in all, a nice experience. I would return.

Such a warm and friendly staff throughout our experience. Menu was explained wonderfully and we were given the option of vegetarian or strictly vegan menus. Each course we had was absolutely delicious and balanced in flavors. Really wonderful evening. I'm not vegetarian but I will come back here!

Food quality, service, and ambiance were great. However, the quantity of food and value was severely lacking. We ordered twice as much as the waiter suggested and still were left hungry after the meal. This was our second time visiting, but we still felt the food quality was good.

Server was condescending.
We were not told when we made our reservation that was for 2 o'clock that they would turn the heat off at 3:30 to make us leave.
When you make a date if there are restrictions, they should be told to you up front.
Food was good but not worth it

The food was excellent, well prepared, nicely presented and wonderfully tasty.
The pre-dinner cocktails were creative and flavorful, the Wine was a bit overpriced for the selection by the glass. The staff remembered to place a candle in the dessert as requested when making the reservation.
Only negative was being rushed through appetizers and dinner. Dinner selections arrived prior to appetizers being finished and wait staff constantly asked if they could remove our plates when there was obviously food still to be enjoyed.
