Great for dinner or a drink.

Great place for drinks and dinner. We sat at the bar and enjoyed very good food and service. The food is primarily French with a few dishes having a Moroccan flair to them.

Do not eat here. Horrible attitude, bad service very average food. Looks fancy but the place sucks. Do yourself a favor. Skip it.

It's a really popular place, but we aren't sure why. The food was just okay, and took forever to get to us. The manager didn't apologize nor offer to comp the drinks or appetizers. They also seemed short on wait staff, as our waiter was really hustling. The best thing I can say about it is great location.

Dreadful service - did not bring correct orders, slammed dishes down, never refilled coffee or water glasses. There are too many good choices to ever stop here!

2 eggs, 2 sausages and a pile of undercooked potatoes in a tomato sauce for 18$. Miserable waiters throw coffee at you. Better off going to a half priced dinner. At least you'd get a smile from the staff.

It's a decent spot, but probably more expensive than it needs to be. I enjoy fun cocktail lists, so this place had that going for it.

About two months ago, I had dinner at Nice Matin and was very content with the meal, beginning to end. So, when it came to making a reservation for Easter Brunch, we decided on Nice Matin - given our track record and the great sunny location on the corner of 79th and Amsterdam. Well, the "Morning" was not "Nice," it... More

There is little that one can say about this restaurant that is complimentary, unfortunately. Our unedifying and unremarkable fare was compounded by one of the most inhospitable maitre d's we have ever had the misfortune of encountering, either in my professional experience as a writer being treated for meals worldwide, or as tourists. Our meal began innocently enough, with a... More

One morning we decided to have brunch at Nice- Matin which is in the hotel but apparently not run by the hotel. My wife decided to order a waffle, but before ordering asked are if they are... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain.
