After seeing "An American in Paris" on Broadway, we took the 1 train uptown to 79th Street. Nice Matin is on the corner with Amsterdam Avenue. It has outdoor tables, but we chose to eat inside. We chose a table in a corner, near an open door. We were attended quickly, given the menu, and a wine list that has... More

OK food, mediocre service, a low-end wine list, but a great location on the Upper West Side. Some people like to be seen there, but why? It's just an OK restaurant, with tourist hype and a hotel connection.

Restaurant is bright with a nice patio. We mostly ate breakfast there but it was very good and service excellent

Extensive luncheon menu: salads, sandwiches, pizzas, soups, entrees. Enjoyed the lamb sausage pizza with peppers, onions and pecorino cheese. Good portion of mussels. Waitress skilled at removing bowl full of empty shells on a regular basis. Eclectic crowd, from business people, to locals, to tourists in shorts with black socks and deck shoes.

Had breakfast recently at Nice-Matin mainly as the hotel next door offered a 15% discount voucher. It is very nicely appointed French bistro, the staff were just about friendly, the breakfast was adequate but small by US standards. My main beef is that even with a 15% discount, it is still expensive and you can find a lot better and... More

Nice-Matin is in a good location for breakfast if you are staying on the Upper West Side. It is bright and cheerful and the staff are friendly but the food disappoints. I ordered their Nice breakfast juice mix of orange, pineapple, cranberry, and mango and though it sounds appealing the blend just doesn't work. I ordered the fruit, cereal, and... More

I went with a friend; I ordered Eggs Benedict. This is a test case for the brunch: the eggs a little bit raw and the home fries tasteless. It´s a nice place to stay outside in a traditional NY corner.

I fell in love with Nice-Matin the first time I went there, and have never been disappointed on many repeat visits - it is like being in a Parisian cafe, and has the most authentic cafe au lait and croissants I have found anywhere on this side of the ocean. The best time to go is for brunch on Saturday... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
