We always look for Greek restaurants when we travel and Uncle Nick's did not disappoint. The location was terrific and easy to find. The food was really good. The spanakopita was wonderful and fresh as was everything else we had. The portions are large and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The wait-staff was efficient and friendly. It was fun to watch... More

Uncle Nick's is well-known for its Greek cuisine. I love Greek food but I found the food rather uninspiring. The Greek salad was served with a flavorless Balsamic vinegar dressing, they need to change that. On the positive side, the service was excellent at the Midtown location.

Four of us walked from the Sheraton New York Time Square Hotel and had an enjoyable dinner meal at Nick's. Two of us had been to Greek restaurants before and two had not. The restaurant was crowded but we were quickly seated and served. The tables were close together and it felt cramped. The food was served hot quickly. Very... More

Lived in a Greek neighborhood for years and had my pick of many Greek restaurants. Perhaps this has made me hard to please but after reading the excellent reviews, I was very excited. The food was very average. Good but nothing special....and the prices were very high--$18 for a plate of stuffed grape leaves that came with a small side... More

We always stop at Uncle Nicks when we visit NYC. Coming from NW PA its hard to find good Greek food. They have a great menu and a fantastic wine selection. We have been there several times and have never been disappointed. The decor is nice the service is great and you always leave with a full belly. We have... More

I have been going to Uncle Nick's on and off for well over fifteen years. Excellent food. Good service and always a smile and a nod. Whenever I have anyone come from out of town we go there. Wonderful food.

We came here after wandering around on 9th avenue looking for a place to eat. I love greek food so we thought let's give this restaurant a try. We ordered a large greek salad which was really good. We also had the 4 combo dip and the greek fries, these dishes were good. My sister ordered a vegetable spinach type... More

Whenever we come into the City, Uncle Nicks is the place to go for casual Greek cuisine. Five Star food at reasonable prices. A must for visitors to the City.

We dropped in for a quick bite to Uncle Nicks...the food was wonderful, very fresh and tasty. The service was good also....if you are a greek food lover, then I would suggest you give them a try. The prices are reasonable and I think you will leave happy and full!

Portions were incredible size-they might want to consider trimming them to reduce waste! Food was good and although my lamb started a little tough, it was actually very good once I got to the middle. My wife bit into a small piece of metal near the end of her meal. No damage-close call, and we simply showed it to the... More
