The food is solidly reliable it is simply tourist priced. Unfortunately, this is the midtown dilemma in general. Rents have risen so prices and table minimums go up. Given the simplicity of ingredients and the type of food, the prices just grate on me. The place could be cleaner and the staff more attentive but the place gets crazy busy.... More

My family ate here twice during our trip to New York City; the food is amazing and full of flavor; the staff incredibly welcoming and friendly. The restaurant itself has a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

This part of 9th Ave is filled with restaurants aimed at the fringe of Broadway tourism. They use every trick to lure you in - gaudy signs, soliciting you from their doorways, pretentious but vapid menus, semi-lucid revelers shouting through open windows over loud music, interesting looking foods on display (that are usually over-priced and barely edible). And then there's... More

We never miss a dinner at Uncle Nick's when my sisters come to visit on my birthday. The food is always delicious. The restaurant does a great job accommodating dietary restrictions (my sister is vegan.) We always have a great time. Thanks!

Ate here with group of friends and we all loved our meals. Shared hot/cold sampler app. I had halibut and friends had flounder. Only complaint is portions were enormous. Come hungry and don't expect to finish your meal. Definitely will come back before next B'way nite.

The lamb kabobs were fabulous, and the spanakopita was the best I've had. Generous salad portion and yummy appetizer dip plate. I'll be back!

I found the food very mediocre. Even the fries, which is hard to mess up, we're just meh...Lastly, prices were not cheap given the average quality. Regret not having gone elsewhere.

If you get off the touristy section of Times Square you can get some good Greek food at Uncle Nick's. Granted a half carafe of wine, a flaming cheese appetizer, a shared large salad, and two traditional Greek main courses cost $77 plus but everything in NYC is expensive. We have leftovers for tomorrow or the next day. The service... More

I am a Greek, and I LOVE Uncle Nick's. The food is not fancy, but it tastes like food you would be given in a Greek home. I visit whenever I'm in NY, and any time I bring someone along they come away raving about it.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
