Wonderful dining experience. Not stuffy, but excellent food and service. A little noisy but we sat in a location that was not too crowded. Would recommend it to friends for sure. outside dining as well. Varied menu with fixed price option.

We went to Nice matin after a concert at Beacon Theatre. It was late. The waiter was nice, the food was good but we had to wait for our dessert and when we asked, apparently they had forgot it! Overall we left with a so so feeling.

We ate breakfast and dinner meals at Nice Matin. Both times the place was buzzing with customers, locals and vacationers. The menu had a wide variety for every taste. The entire staff of the restaurant was cordial, friendly and gave excellent service.

The other food coming out all looked very good. We were here several years ago for diner and walked by last week and stopped for lunch,... More

This restaurant is attached to the Lucerne Hotel and hotel guests get a 15% discount off breakfast, so out of pure laziness and the fact that we had got up late, we stumbled into Nice Matin for breakfast one morning. The restaurant is like a large 1950's diner, with booths and Formica tables. It seems to be consistently busy and... More

Good French / bistro style restaurant. Brunch (American breakfast with Eggs Benedict is excellent). Waffles are also particularly good. Staff attentive and helpful.
