    My husband ordered the ravioli and I had the cavatappi. Both were very good. I loved the delicious walnut pesto covering the pasta.

    Brunch is always very reliable, but it was punishingly noisy today. Still the best spot in the neighborhood for brunch.

    A cozy Provençal restaurant with floor to ceiling windows and a sidewalk cafe, just minutes away from the legendary food Mecca Zabar’s, Nice Matin is a neighborhood gem with scenic view, exquisite cuisine, impeccable service, and convivial vibe. We love the hospitality of the wait staff and always go away supremely satiated. So no complaints in general. Our only wish is that some of the specials ( such as truffles risotto and cream of mushroom soup, which are simply divine!) will eventually make their way to the regular menu.

    Resting on its laurels. Service was disorganized, inattentive, and overall not what it used to be. The food has lost a lot of its taste as well. I hope they can get things back to what they were because it was a great restaurant in earlier years.

    I love Nice Matin. It is a charming place, and I highly recommend it. However, I'm tired of making reservations at Open Table only to discover always AFTER the dinner, that no points were given for the reservation. I believe I'll start going directly to the establishment to make reservations rather than making reservations at Open Table only to discover that not ONE place that I make reservations gives points for having made the reservation through Open Table. That's bad policy, folks.

    The brunch food here is very good. Been here many times. Service is spotty. Waited 0ver 10 min to be seated even with reservation. Waited over 20 minutes before I ordered. We had 1:30 reservation with food arriving almost an hour later. No menus had to ask. Brunch is always packed. Very loud. Ambiance is very eclectic(Weird). I go for the food. The rest is keep your fingers crossed.

    Regardless of what one orders, your party will be rushed, depending on the number in your part. It is such an unpleasant experience, given that the food is just ok, the place is just ok, ... It is downstairs from a hotel that is mid-range, old, and used by a lot of academics in town.
