I've visited Nice Matin during an annual trip for the past 6 years. The food is consistently excellent and the service attentive, professional and prompt. I enjoyed breakfast (2), dinner (1) and brunch (1) during my NYC stay next door. The sommeliers are helpful. The restaurant can be noisy, so if you want to converse easily when the restaurant is...

I had looked at the menu for Nice & Martin and while expensive I thought it worth a try for a celebratory dinner. I was a little taken aback at the prices for dinner, much more for the same dishes they served for lunch (which is the menu I had seen). But I went ahead and ordered the steak frites... More

Found it while walking by. Very nice atmosphere, good food and service. Go with the American Breakfast. Includes any entrée, coffee and juice of fruit plate for one price.

I visited Nice Matin for my birthday with some friends. I specifically picked it because of the menu - I love French cuisine- and the location. We were seated right away and oddly enough, the waiter tried to take two place settings away from out table of four before we even sat. We reminded him that we were a party... More

We took two good friends to dinner here recently and really enjoyed the beautiful decor, the pleasant and efficient service, and the delicious food. A great choice for a restaurant to entertain on the Upper West Side.

After walking around all afternoon on a chilly fall day we were happy to arrive quite early for our 5pm reservation on a Saturday night. Alas, despite having called to make the reservation, there was no record, but no problem, we were seated immediately at a pleasant table by the window with a great view of the bustling Amsterdam Avenue....

My husband and I found ourselves on the UWS at lunch time last week and decided to check out Nice Matin. I believe that it is from the same family as L'Express, which is in our neighborhood. Unlike L'Express, which is quite dark inside, Nice Matin is light and sunny. The food and service were both very good. We will... More

I had breakfast here the first morning of my trip and it reminded me of doing the same on my trip in France. The staff were very nice and the food was very good even though my eyes were bigger than my stomach but I made it work. Don't forget to order the creme fraiche with your toast delicious. Enjoy...

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.
