Lovely French bistro on Amsterdam and 79th. Food always excellent and reasonably priced. Great steak frites as well as soups. Atmosphere is relaxing and not noisy.

It was a holiday weekend and brunch seating was at a premium. They don't accept brunch reservations, but we didn't have to wait too long for our table. Had all the usual items on the menu you might expect and several originals. Particularly enjoyed my egg scramble with spicy lamb sausage while my wife was impressed with her french toast... More

We went to this restaurant after hearing about what a great wine list they had - it is the largest list we have ever seen - but the food also was great.

A wonderful all purpose restaurant on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The food is uniformly good and the menu is mostly French Bistro. The steak frites are really good as are the mussels and roast beef hamburger. The portions are large and mostly cooked to order. The wine list is extensive and fits any price range. This is a...

Nice Matin was adjacent to our hotel and was a lovely surprise to find it open at the late hour of our arrival to New York. A great introduction to the food scene in NY. The service was wonderful and the food fabulous, I can especially recommend the duck. But even better was the extensive wine list and professional sommelier.... More
