While staying at The Lucerne, every morning we had our breakfast at Nice Matin, a French restaurant. As guest of the Lucerne hotel you get a 15% discount for breakfast. A lot of choice varying from Continental to American breakfast, very tastful breakfast, quick and friendly service. I can recommend this restaurant also for dinner: meat or fish, all main... More

My daughters and I love the Lucerne, but all three of us rated our breakfast here very poor. My breakfast potatoes were cold. Didn't bother sending them back because they were tasteless anyway. Daughter had NY heart attack. She said it wasn't very good and echoed my opinion on the potatoes. My spinach and mushroom fritatta was very mediocre, nothing... More

We were staying in the Lucerne hotel and ordered a late dinner from Nace-Matin room service. Everything arrived as ordered and delicious, within 20 minutes. A great relaxing end to a great busy day in NYC.

We enjoyed the continental breakfast at Nice-Matin. I would have liked to have tried the restaurant for lunch or dinner, but did not. In short, the coffee is strong and hot, muffins are sweet, bagels well-toasted.

Nice-Matin is well located to serve the upscale clientele of the New York upper west side. It has the wonderful, comfortable feeling of a French Bistro but with both Restaurant and Bistro menus. The bar serves excellent drinks and the wine list is as good as you will find for many blocks around. Service is always caring and more than... More

Nice-Matin is at the corner of 79th and Amsterdam. I love the summer evenings that allow you to eat outside at Nice-Matin. A bit on the pricey side but good.

My husband and I stayed overnight in a hotel nearby, and had breakfast here. Service was friendly and efficient. The lemon poppy scones accompanied by a bowl of berries with yogurt were delicious.

We stopped in for dinner. We couldn't get an outdoor table so we were seated in a booth. It was comfortable enough but noisy. I had trouble hearing the people across the table. That said, the place has much to recommend it. The service was friendly and the servers were knowledgeable. Two of us had the prix fixe menu, which... More
