This restaurant being adjacent to the truly marvelous Hotel Lucerne is guaranteed to put one into a very French/Swiss frame of mind, Fortunately, that same legendary French/Swiss palette is on display at Nice Matin. Offering the service associated with the classic French 'bistro', Nice Matin provides in truth a welcome respite from Upper West Side bustle. There is no hustling... More

Great food and service. We did not have a reservation but we were seated promptly. The menu is extensive and they are accommodating with special requests. I would return.

This little restaurant is conveniently located next toThe Lucerne Hotel. good choice for breakfast in the morning -average fare. Service is good, prompt and friendly. Prices average for New York. Free coffee refills available , regular breakfast menu but no continental style or high protein choices available. Lucerne offers a 15% discount for breakfast to their hotel guests.

By far the best meal we had whilst staying in the area. The atmosphere was great and the staff were very helpful. Lots of choice and the food was exceptional to suit all tastes. We visited on a Friday night and the place was packed but they still managed to find us a table even without a reservation. Highly recommended

We love Nice Matin and fall in there whenever we don't know where to go on our home turf, the UWS. The food is consistently good and varied. You can always find something you like on the menu. The wine steward is excellent. All the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, the host doesn't hassle you if you don't have a... More

Had lunch here recently with a friend and was pleased enough with the experience. The service was efficient, but not particularly friendly. We both had the crab cobb salad, which was good but nothing special. If you're looking for a French bistro for lunch, it does the job.

Food is only average at best (omelets were dry); the service was excellent; the overall experience below average. Why? It's a popular spot for Sunday brunch (when we visited), but they did a poor job in handling the volume. Tables are very close together and we were seated near the front door. Which meant (a) on a very chilly November... More

Lovely restaurant, we've eaten several great meals here. We've had Sunday brunch here twice and it's been great both times. Dinner is also good, quite a few excellent dishes, very good service. Sitting outside is fun when the weather is good. Nice street view of New Yorker walking by.
