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.

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

We were staying on the Upper West Side and looking for somewhere to have an early dinner when we came across Nice-Matin. We were seated outside and enjoyed great service and a great meal. The staff were friendly and very helpful with dietary requirements.

We had breakfast a couple of times. Very good eggs benedict. Also the bartender was very skilled and introduced us to a cool drink...Italian Sprtiz.

While we have had dinner at Nice-Matin before, this time it was for drinks and appetizers at the bar. Nice-Matin is a very special place, made even more special by the welcoming, smiling, kind staff. A little piece of Provence on the Upper West Side of Manhattan

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.
