Overall food was good.

Ate here with group of travellers. The food was good - some better like the Tzatziki some not so good like the tough beef kabobs. All served family style which was fine. Be forewarned that the one washroom is downstairs and may not be suitable for those with accessibility concerns.

I've been here at least a dozen times over the past ten years. Service is always fast and friendly. They don't rush you out the door no matter how long you linger or what you've ordered. Cheap house wines and enough appetizers to keep you at your table for hours. Can get hot and noisy around the open kitchen.

I love this restaurant;it is the best Greek food in New York. The restaurant is quiet usually and the food is diverse and i have never been disappointed. A lot people in the neighborhood order their food take-out, so i like to dine in and enjoy the quiet.

This was our third visit to Uncle Nick's and as usual we were not disappointed. The food is first rate as well as the service. The menu is varied from appetizers to the main course. While they do not have gyro sandwiches they do have a gyro plate which is more than enough food for one person. Would highly recommend... More

In town to watch a Knicks game, found this place near MSG. Food was great, good wine list too; you should definitely try the Greek wines. Really good taramousalata. Wait staff can be a bit more friendly my only negative comment.

Amazing food, friendly atmosphere. Pastitsio was delicious, and the Oktapodaki a wonderful dish, quite hard to find where we live. We will definitely be visiting here again!!

My husband and I really wanted some good Greek food. After some research we found Uncle Nick's on 9th Avenue which was close to our hotel on 8th Avenue. The food was delicious! My husband got the chopped sirloin with greek seasonings and I had the gyro. We both made great choices and will return to Uncle Nick's next time... More

I tend to rate quite conservatively. If it was "just average" I wouldn't keep going back; yet it doesn't quite rate the four stars I give to restaurants that I like very, very much. It's a large place and there's rarely a line. The price is right and the food is good, and they can handle a crowd if you've... More

From the reviews, I had expected heaven. What I got was a crowded table right by the door with the snow coming in every few moments. I got ok service but not the warm, stay as long as you like, service I read about in the reviews. The salad was odd for me and yet, even though we didn't eat... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
