Beautiful outdoor dining experience!
A neighborhood gem that never disappoints. Great wine list too...
They have heat lamps for outdoor seating, but the lamps do not cover every table. Food was great and tables were appropriately socially distanced.
Since the pandemic forced outdoor dining, we have supported our neighborhood restaurants by eating out at least twice a week. We gave Nice Matin a try. It didn’t go well. The kitchen lost our order ticket (it happens) but during our 45 minute wait without food, our server didn’t check on us even once. My husband finally flagged down a manager, who gave us a complimentary ravioli along with an apology but sorry, Nice Matin. We will be supporting other restaurants in our neighborhood going forward.
Always and still love Nice Matin! Best restaurant on the UWS!
We sat on the sidewalk, frequently distracted by traffic noises and fire engines. Surely not the restaurant's fault. A big cheer and a thank you to our attentive server. The pumpkin tart was excellent but very tiny for $14. The $16 octopus was a fail--very tough and hard to cut. The strudel dessert was the winner of the evening. Just perfect as a stand alone but delightfully accompanied by vanilla ice cream. The inside of the restaurant was lovely and sparsely occupied but we were leery of dining indoors.
Went for the outdoor dining with 5 friends. Everyone loved their meals and enjoyed the restaurant. Would definitely recommend for outdoor dining.
Lovely. Opera singer for the happy birthday song. Food delicious and unique. Very special.
Very enjoyable lunch on our anniversary.
I joined a friend for an outdoor lunch at Nice Matin. My omelet was the best I have had in NYC for years. I asked for a 'soft' omelet, and that is how it arrived. Our waitress was the most agreeable, helpful, efficient, charming waitress I can recall. Bravo, Nice Matin !!
No complaints and the food was tasty.That's the way it should be. Great omelette,with avocado and gruyere (I think) and other stuff. A real croissant, not that bready version that's been floating all around town--it was a side, and they added jam (Bonne Maman?) and butter (!--for a croissant; they were just trying to be extra nice). The maitresse d' was especially lovely and accommodating. All adorable, really good-looking kids (i.e., under 40 y.o.).
Excellent, attentive service. Indoor dining felt extremely COVID-safe. Food is pretty good, but not extraordinary.
Nice Matin is a great place to eat in New York City. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is wonderful. The food is well prepared and tastes fantastic. The staff is friendly and attentive. Open for breakfast,lunch, and dinner.
Their food is reliably good and the service matches.
It was too sunny outside. We were the only people inside.
Great neighborhood spot and an approachable menu of staples.
Good enough but not great. Charging for bread is tacky. Heat lamps make a difference, we were comfortable on a chilly nite.
Our group of 6 felt very safe and had a lovely meal. The Steak Tartare app was disappointing, but the Halibut main course was outstanding. The Steak Frites was good. The chicken was fine, but nothing to rave about. The desserts were fabulous. A good option for the neighborhood. The staff was very attentive and efficient.
We ate outside and it was extremely pleasant. Not too noisy except when an ambulance went by. Excellent avocado toast. Also the hummus and pita was very tasty. Enjoyed the pistou soup which was full of fresh vegetables.
The service was safe and professional.
Nothing too fancy, just authentic food and genuine service. What else can I ask for? :)
Delicious food, great server, good value. A little noisy!
Great upper Westside French place to eat and relax.
It was our first dinner out with friends since March. The 4 of us sat outside, which made it quite noisy as a lot of cars, trucks and buses go up Amsterdam. However, that's really the only "complaint" because everything else, the food, the excellent service, and the overall feel were just exceptional. I have been to Nice Matin many times for business lunches, but of course not during the pandemic. I am glad they were able to re-open, a real French comfort-food place that has earned a solid place on my list of restaurants I cherish.
All satisfactory, however, service was a bit disorganized and difficult to summons.
I came back after not visiting for a long time and I was very happy about the food and the service was great. Dining outside on the street was definitely and a new experience and quite funny!
Fantastic place Food is unusually creative and excellent Service was great and one of best wine lists in NYC
I love your restaurant. I completely understand that the outside dining experience is imposed, not a choice. The imposition is necessary. That said, sitting practically in the middle of Amsterdam Avenue, with exhaust fumes, noise, and in close proximity to parking cars, was not conducive to fine dining. In addition, our meals were delayed for quite a long time before arriving. Once it arrived, it was fine, if a bit over salted. Our waiter was solicitous and caring, poised and knowledgable.
Our server Eddie is amazing. Covid standards excellent. Sadly one homeless person asked us for food and since Nice Matin is next to the Lucern I guess we’re not the first. I volunteer at God’s Love We Deliver and maybe they can help.
Another lovely dinner at my favorite UWS restaurant. I can't wait to dine inside!
As always, Nice Matin is a treat on every level. Food, service and safety were great. No problems at all around the Hotel Lucerne issues. Calm and quiet.
A welcomed break from home cooking. Menu well chosen,as
is wine. Service was just right.
"Energetic" is one way to put it... the street noise was pretty ghastly. But the food & service were great.
Probably the best aspect was the service of our waiter. He was polite, attentive and knowledgeable. My companion is very fussy about her martinis and he produced the right drink.
Our food was good. The Moroccan spicy salmon was tasty but not very spicy. The cote du Rhone was very good although not a generous amount.
There were many empty tables at our time so were happy not to have to leave after 90 minutes. My friend drove in from NJ so it would have disappointing if we had to leave.
Always a favorite, but we miss the tuna tartare! Please bring it back.
Food has improved since my last visit. Happy to recommend.
For outside dining it was the most civilised in the neighbourhood
Almost felt normal
Feel good moment
Appetizers, entrees and desserts all very good. Wine and cocktails excellent. Street noise due to mandatory sidewalk dining - this too shall pass! Recommended, with hope that soon some indoor tables will be available
Nice Matin was a wonderful night out!
The food and the atmosphere were great (and we felt safely distanced from our neighboring tables)
The restaurant next door had a jazz group playing and that added to the whole night
We’ll be back!
In the new world of outdoor dining, our experience at Nice Matin was as comfortable as it could be. We were seated in the sidewalk section, not in the roadway, which was not different from any outdoor experience in the past. I had the chopped salad and hummus bi tahini small plates. Both were fresh and delicious. The pita bread and the vegetables accompanying the hummus also were fresh. I drank a lovely Cotes du Rhone.
The service was efficient and pleasant. We were not hurried. My companion arrived 30 minutes prior to our reservation and was seated without any problem while she waited for my arrival.
Nice Matin is expensive. I didn't mind the cost so much when I was in the lovely and lively dining room, but that's not a complaint about the restaurant; only a lament about the times.
