We went there after checking out the highwalk and we loved it. The food is great and not too expensive. The seafood was fresh and delicious, the side dish wass also nicely spiced. Only negative point is that it was too cold.

Went for lunch—nearly empty when I went in, almost full when I left; looked like business people from area. Had eaten several times at Upper West side location. Kept it simple ordering cup of lemon rice soup ($5) which came in bowl and was excellent. Thick, almost creamy, very lemony, chunks of chicken, some veggies and hot. Lamb souvlaki in pita ($6) was decent sized with enough lamb chunks. Detected no grilled flavor. It was however among the toughest chunks I’ve ever eaten and not necessarily due to cooking. Meat was fresh though. Excessive lettuce, ok with the onions but few tomato slices. There was something trying to look like tzatziki sauce, but it was tasteless. Also given bread and butter (with a sandwich?!). Service OK—had to beg for water, but place was quite busy. Pleasant setting, but would not go back. The many customers here might suggest the food choices are worse elsewhere in the area.

Wanted a quick bite before a game at the Garden. Uncle Nick's was perfect. Not crowded at 6 on a Thursday. Octopus appetizer was tender and tasty. Tsatsiki was delicious. Grilled fresh fish was great, as was shrimp kebob. Its not fancy, and its not cheap, but the food was worth it.

We stuck with soup and gyros for lunch, but the menu looked great. I would have liked to try more, if we had more time in NYC. Two of our group did find time to eat here twice on their longer stay in NYC.

First night in NYC. Have starved for lamb and theirkebab and lamb chops were excellent. Greek country salad huge. Very helpful waiting staff but don't like the presumption of 18% gratuity. Not in my country......but this is America!
