I usually look for a tablecloth at dinner....that's my thing, but once I was there, did not miss it at all. Service was warm and welcoming. The Kale Salad was creative and fabulous tasting. The pan roasted chicken with orange scented collards...terrific. The bread, continually replenished (we were all bread eaters and loved it - comes from Pain Davignon. Walked... More

I have eaten there many times. The food is always good; not spectacular. Service can be spotty, depends on the wait person. Oenophiles will enjoy the huge wine list.

On a recent trip to NYC, I visited Nice-Matin two times. Both times friends suggested we meet there for lunch on one occasion and drinks with snacks, on the other. Both times, the food was fresh, hot and delicious. Their french fries, i.e. "frites," are as Parisian as I've ever had! Exceptional also, was their "Tuna Tartare with Avocado" as... More

It's such a charming place. The menu is very varied so there is something for everyone. Like most places in NY, they will totally accommodate your preferences (no sauce, extra sauce, GF, vegan, substitute the mushrooms for eggplant, etc.). It is a noisy place, especially when you first arrive, but after you're seated and you've ordered and had a glass... More

The bar area is cozy and very visable. Finding someone there is very easy. The food was fresh, tasty and served with a smile. We did not have that "rushed" feeling to turn the table over. I would recommend this restaurant for a casual dining, relaxing experience.

The nicest food in New York. We had a party of 15 and the waiter was just awesome, food to die for. Not the cheapest on wine but differently make up for it on the price of food. We have been 2 in the last week and going back again tomorrow .

OK, this place is "french" so not to expect the use of challah. But not even French sourdough bread! I doubt they even glance the bread in egg before it hits the griddle. So soggy it seemed water-logged and the white bread had no flavor whatsoever. I am a good cook and know that the inside of french toast should... More

Lovely atmosphere, and great food. We were there for dinner on our first night in NYC. The food was delicious, especially the fish and escargot. The waiter was very attentive and helpful. All his suggestions were winners. We'll be back.
