We arrived to our hotel (The Lucerne) late at night and we thought we should try Nice Matin as it was adjacent to our hotel. First of all, I noticed that the other diners were mostly locals in groups or as couples and not many tourists which was nice and comforting. The menu was eclectic, the usual American affair, from...

Nice decor, but very disappointing quality of ingredients and taste of the food, not to mention the excessive prices charged.

Met business colleagues for lunch. Service was profession and friendly, food was good, prices were reasonable. It was a little noisy, but nearly every restaurant in NYC is noisy. I would eat here again.

Always a pleasure to have Sunday brunch here. To many choices on the menu--all good. Dinner is another excellent choice.

Nice Matin serves such large portions that I would have had trouble finishing what they gave me under any circumstances. Unfortunately, the food was not great, so I really ate very small amounts. I had the Restaurant Week lunch menu. My husband had the shrimp bruschetta, which he liked. The best part of the meal was the caramel cheese cake... More

Great restaurant with classic bistro food. Lovely to sit inside or out. The steak and duck were excellent and dessert delicious.

Underwhelming for the price but food was pretty good. We were staying at Lucerne hotel so it's convenient but don't expect too much

I first ate at Nice Matin 10 years ago and for whatever reason, have never made it back in subsequent visits to NYC. I never forgot the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and creme fraiche. I just took my daughter to Nice-Matin for brunch and she had the eggs and smoked salmon and loved them. I had the hash and... More

The open feel in the restaurant was really nice even on a warm day. Had speciality drinks at the bar before dinner that were amazing. We had mussels and roasted duck for dinner. It was absolutely delicious! And the big surprise was the wine list. We will be back in September for another preshow dinner
