As we were going into Manhattan to see the decorations and were meeting another couple, we planned to go to dinner. My significant other had eaten here numerous times and recommended it. We made a reservation for 7:15 p.m. on 12/8.

We arrived early and were told there were no tables available, which we understood. While we were waiting, another group came in who did not have reservations. They were told it was about a 30 minute wait.

I was not comfortable with leaving because I had a feeling that the maitre'd would give the next open table to whomever walked in. A table opened up and I and the wife of the other couple stepped back into the restaurant from the vestibule (because we both had the same feeling about the matrie'd) to get the table. The maitre'd proceeded to ignore us and seated the group who had no reservation. We complained and expressed our displeasure and were given a million excuses but no apology and were repeatedly told we had a 7:15 reservation (I guess he was going to make us wait to 7:15). When we told our significant others what had happened mine proceeded to give the matrie'd a piece of his mind. A gentleman (we presume an owner) then came to the vestibule to ask what had happened and next thing we knew we were escorted to a semi-private back area of the restaurant.

Our waitress was wonderful and down to earth and proceeded to completely make up for the rudeness of the maitre'd. The food was amazing (I had was the most tender swordfish I have ever had). All in all, it was a good experience and I would definitely recommend Uncle Nick's (just make sure to arrive exactly on time for your reservation!)

Uncle Nick's never disappoints. Food is always good and plentiful. Service is fast and courteous. Took my family there for dinner after a Saturday matinee and everyone loved it. As a heads up, Uncle Nick's automatically adds tip to groups of 6 or more. I didn't pay attention to my charge and as a result double tipped. But Uncle Nick's management was very understanding and helpful in correcting my error after the fact. Looking forward to my next visit to Uncle Nick's sometime soon.

Saganaki good. Meatballs crusty and not flavorful. Waited so long for a steak, I was sure they had forgotten to give the order to the kitchen and was prepared to forego it. It did come, once my companions had finished their food, and too bad for me: it was dry, I had a lot of trouble cutting it, and it had no taste. $29 for something I could not eat. Explained to the waitress and she said she was sorry. I was charged fully for it.

First time here and went because of the great ratings. At first as I approached Uncle Nick’s, I was worried as the people I was with are quite discerning diners. When they sat at up front close to the kitchen with all the noise and the banging dishes I was sure this was going to be a disappointment. But boy was I wrong! The service was amazing (didn’t get our waitress’ name but she was a beautiful larger woman, with such an engaging manner. She was phenomenal. All the food was made to order and I had Greek salad and saganaki and their freshly prepared tzaziki (sp?) was the best I’ve had at any Greek dining establishment it was also a short walk to seeing our broadway show Mean Girls! All in all a fabulous culinary experience!

Uncle Nick’s Greek Restaurant was absolutely outstanding. Everything from the food, the service, the atmosphere. The prices were excellent. The portions were the right size. The authenticity of the dishes were perfect. On a scale of 1 to 10, this restaurant rates a 20, definitely. I could eat there a couple times a week.

We’ve been a couple times in the past month and used to go a lot many years ago. The food is a good value, and the atmosphere is fine but you’ll be happier if you go in with moderate expectations. Our waiter on our most recent evening - wish I remembered his name - was extraordinarily thoughtful and helpful in getting us in and out quickly for theater despite our arriving late.

My family and I visited Uncle Nick’s many years ago and remembered it favorably so we decided to come back for a pre show dinner. My husband sword fish kabobs tasted off and we sent it back. The appetizers and other dishes (fish and chips, vegetable mousaka, and baked feta and tomatoes) were all mediocre at best. We were offered desert on the house to make up for the fish, and got the baklava. It was a huge portion but just overly sweet and disappointing. We’re definitely not coming back.

One of the worst meals I’ve ever had and definitely not authentic Greek. The food was awful, and when mentioned to the waiter, still paid for everything despite the awful quality and preparation. This place should definitely not label themselves as Greek cuisine. Not to mention, they had a leak from the ceiling dripping on us all night. The bus boy would come by and clean part of the area, but it was slippery near the other of the table. Restaurant needs some repairs and renovations.

I have been eating here for years, food and service has been on a steady decline. My food didn’t taste fresh, frankly seemed microwave heated. The place was empty but they seated a loud group of six young women right next to us, we couldn’t even hear each other. They used to give you pita bread without asking, and roasted potatoes and zucchini for free. No more. I asked the waiter, he didn’t know what I was talking about. And they brought pita with dip and charged. Not coming back, many other good Greek restaurants around town.
