Was in NYC on business and hotel recommended this place which was just around the corner. So glad they did - very good little neighborhood authentic Greek restaurant. I'd highly recommend if you are staying in the area. Service was a little slow... Took us probably 10 minutes to get drunk order made after sitting, but the staff was friendly.

Go for lunch if you can it's smaller portions and smaller price. It was ok nothing to write home about. I love Greek food when ever available I order the pastichio it was ok.

I had a superb brook trout, delivered whole (including the tail and head). Upon request, the chef will fillet it for you. My cup on tasty Greek soup was as large as most bowels of soup in most restaurants. Most of the staff have been there for many years, including the male waiters. While I dine in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen... More

We called in Uncle Nicks for lunch after a morning in Central Park during the record October temperatures. We were seated and immediately greeted with iced water and frequently topped up without asking. We both ate from the lunch specials menu $10 inc. a fountain soda for a selection of entrees. We both opted for Greek Salad which you can... More

We ended up at Uncle Nick's because the middle eastern restaurant we were going to was closed for the holiday. I'd been to Uncle Nick's years ago and wasn't all that impressed but this time it was surprisingly good. Every dish was tasty especially the grilled calamari. Prices are not cheap but portions are pretty large. They had a little... More

An ok experience. The food was reasonable. Try the gimmicky flaming cheese, a piece of Halloumi, I think. Set aflame with some accelerant and delivered piping hot to your table. Main courses are typically kebabs served in the main with rice. If you ever happen to go and the weather is fair ask for an outside seat. We did not... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
