Uncle Nick's Greek Cuisine - Hell's Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I were in NYC for 4 days - came to see the Springsteen on Broadway concert - and had four very different dining experiences during our stay. All were great in their own way, but my favorite was Uncle Nick's. Being 100% Greek, I am very particular about what is advertised as Greek food. To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. The service was very friendly and attentive (yes, it was a Tuesday night and relatively quiet), the food was excellent - and a fantastic value - no skimping on the portions and high quality. I would highly recommend Uncle Nick's for authentic Greek food at great value. We will definitely come back next time we are in NYC!
Had dinner at Nick's on a saturday night with friends. We had just gotten back from a trip to Greece and wanted some greek food for nostalgia. The dips and pita were great for appetizer. I had the swordfish skewer for around $24, and it was very tasty. They had other traditional Greek items, . My friend had a good Pastitsio, and an ouzo. The food was great. The place is large, and was about 60% occupied during a 9:30 dinner. I would recommend it for sure, especially if you want to eat well and not spend that much money.
I was expecting great Greek food served Iwith Greek integrity. They were chintzy with the olives I asked for a few more for our salad for 4 and I was told I needed to buy a serving. They didn't use olive oil on the salad and it didn't have enough vinegar. There was no hospitable complimentary sweet either. A long way from the Greek taverna I know.
We actually thought we were going to another restaurant. Never mind. The food was authentic Greek like my Mom would make. Quantities overly generous, especially the booze part. (3 oz. of ouzo in a glass). All the food was good. Waiter forgot about us at the beginning but made up for it. Crowd around us was colorful if noisy. Good place and enjoyed it.
Consistently good since the 80s. Best fresh grilled fish in town. Homey not stylish, can get a little loud if crowded. But the food makes it all worthwhile. And the grilled lamb chops are delicious, too. Uncle Nick's is about the last of the original Hell's Kitchen restaurants. It deserves local support!!
Love the server and I had a great drink. The Greek salad was very different, the tzatziki sauce was lumpy and I tried mousaka for the first time- nice, another member of the party had chicken kebab served with rice- it looked nice. We were able to start and finish in under 45 min to go to our show.
Very good rating overall. I had the Gyro plate and my wife had the Grilled Calamari and a Greek Salad. We ate outside in the back area. The Roasted Feta cheese and tomatoes appetizer was excellent. Service was very attentive and the ambiance was pleasant. We were there for a pre-theatre dinner on a Friday evening.
This place came highly recommended. I will not go back. Lack of ambiance aside (somewhat a hole in the wall off the street) I found the food and service lacking and not anywhere near standards I've experienced at say Molyvos for half the price. Service was slow although place was pretty much empty. The appetizer dip selection was ok but Huge portion for one person - would have suited 3 or 4. Flounder - whole fish - done well and best part. Accompanying vegetables were mush. Baklava was old, dry and frankly the worst I've ever had. 2 glasses of Greek wine were decent. $75 for one person with tip. Way, way over priced. $35-45 would have been reasonable assuming all the components of the meal were well done.
