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.

We were a group of five on our way to a play so they rushed out order. Great service and fantastic food. We had several appetizers, my fav was the flaming cheese. Portions are generous. The grilled fish looked great. Will definitely return for a full dinner.

This is a very good place for sit and dine or for take away. It was my first time here, so I waited by the door until someone assists me. I placed an order and they very politely asked me to sit and be at the bar offering me a glass of water until the order arrives. Unlike some other... 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.
