The food was good (although salty), especially the flaming cheese and the fresh fish. The portions were very large. It is a great value for New York City! If you are looking for a Greek restaurant and a great value, this is the place to go.

i knew it was not going to be what i had so looked forward to when i asked the waiter how long Uncle Nicks had been around and he answered "about 5 or 6 years"....this is a restaurant whose walls are plastered with 5 diamond awards dating back to 1998!!!!!!
the service was poor.....uninterested.....the food was average.....and then they add 18% gratuity on a table of 4???
certainly nto value for money and as we live literally around the corner it could have easily become our "regular"but unfortunatly it wont......

Met my sister last night for dinner at Uncle Nick's on Eight Avenue and 29th street (she needed to be close to catch a train back home in NJ) and was very impressed with Uncle Nick's. I was there with my wife and we started with the Inopikilia for 2 (hot & cold appetizers--octopus, sausage, keftedakia, dips, pita bread, olives, feta cheese, peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers) for the table, which was both delicious and plenty for the three of us. For the mains, we had the grilled squid, the snapper and the striped bass (the latter two were served whole fish style). Everything was delicious. And the wait staff team was responsive and very friendly.

Opa!

On the fringe of Chelsea this is a great place to have a week-end brunch or dinner. The food is well prepared and very tasty.Both the moussaka and souvlaka (sp?) are to be recommended. The Greek yogurt appetizer is a welcome start to the meal.

Excellent food and I especially enjoyed their huge Greek Salad which we split between 3 people, and could be a meal in itself.  The Chicken skewers were good as was the rice.  Baklava was not as sweet as I thought it should be.  Go early as the place was filled by 7:30 on a Tuesday night.
