sea bass was great. Service is fast and friendly. You should book a table in advance as it is busy and there is no waiting area.

Do not let the road work on 9 th ave steer you away. Still great Greek food. Have been eating here for many years and still stands tall in food and in service. Suggestion: Shrimp Santorini. For shrimp lovers: to die for

We had dinner at Uncle Nick's and were very disappointed. Food quality is mediocre at best -- we tried all the house specialities, and found them all, without exception, bland, tasteless, overcooked, and overpriced. After hearing rave reviews, we thought the experience would be better. Seating is cramped in a loud and lackluster space with an open kitchen that reminded... More

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.
