Food menu is different than what is on website. Was looking forward to the mussels and not on the lunch menu.
Consistently good food, experience and overall value.
Lovely outdoor dining.
Outside due to COVID... sad plate for bagels&lox platter. Snippy waitress. I guess everyone’s under pressure these days.
We dined outdoors and the street traffic was very noisy.
The cusine was very good and the server did his best to keep up as the place was extremely crowded.
If you do not mind bus fumes, honking horns and barking dogs, you will have a good experience.
We want to give the restaurants business as when the weather changes and becomes cold, nobody will dine outside so it is good to go now while you are still able to take a table outdoors!
We made reservations for a later time because an earlier one was not possible. But an additional call later made it possible to seat us earlier, at our preferred time, but the host apologized for having to seat us in the roadway area. When we arrived, she had changed us to a better place—actually ideal—in the extended sidewalk area. What had started out as problematic the host gradually moved us up to the ideal, a quieter, breezily healthier place.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Nice Matin. Tables are nicely spaced, service is excellent, and food is better than ever. The wine selection is incredible - so much wonderful choice. We had 5 at our table and 3 of us ordered the Hanger Steak. It was fantastic and perfectly cooked. Fries are so, so good. Another guest had the Mediterranean Grain & Lentil bowl and loved it. Finally, one of our guests ordered the hummus as a main course and enjoyed a lighter dinner. The waiter was very accommodating, checking back in frequently. I highly recommend dining at Nice Matin.
Thank you Gabriel and team!
They are navigating this pandemic wonderfully. We had a comfortable table with an excellent waiter and the food was just perfect. I’m so happy they are open and performing at this level.
Staff was very nice. Tad noisy sitting outside. However, the weather was beautiful.
My dinner at Nice Matin was absolutely superb! Delicious food and a very
We had a great time. The food was delicious, the cocktails are wonderful, and the staff was out of this world. Outside dining only currently due to the quarantine but don't let that stop you.
Love Nice Matin. The regular menu has something appropriate for your mood, and then there are specials! Attentive service. Amazingly quiet for being right on Amsterdam Avenue. We go there frequently.
Love the outdoor space. Great salads.
Lovely service and food
In my opinion Nice Matin is the best restaurant in the Upper West Side!
Outstanding wine list specializing in Southern France and extremely knowledgeable and personable wine service
A good brunch exactly what I expected from them
We had an excellent meal at Nice Matin. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and attentive, and in this environment, we felt very comfortable with the distance between tables. One friend had mussels, which he thoroughly enjoyed along with the baguette and another had the halibut, which he said was one of the best preparations he had had. I had the grain bowl, which was delicious and plentiful. Highly recommend!
Amazing! Really enjoyed my dinner with my sister
My only complaint is that they charge for iced tea refills.
It was great to have a canopy over our heads to protect us from the rain. Good service, but the steak we ordered was tough and tasteless. Otherwise very good food and warm, friendly place.
Lovely lunch. Outdoor dining well done. Food was great. Service was oustanding
A lovely lunch was had at Nice Matin Thursday, 8/27, at its outdoor cafe (of course). The Salade Nicoise and Lillet Spritz hit the spot on a warm sunny afternoon, as did the honey ice cream and coffee dessert. Despite the controversy roiling the UWS over the City sheltering persons in UWS hotels because of the pandemic, there was absolutely no evidence of any problems. I heartily recommend Nice Matin.
Unfortunately, given the times, all the tables are outside on the corner of one of the most noisy places in the city, with sirens and trucks. The lunch was rather expensive, without alcohol.
Our first choice for the Upper West Side! Thanks, as always
The food here is much, much better than in the past. They must have a new chef. I have been here twice since outdoor dining re-opened and both times it was excellent. There was a lot of street and construction noise, but that could not be helped. I highly recommend.
We had a delicious meal with good wine and drinks at Nice Matin on Wednesday evening.
The ambience out on the sidewalk is okay but look this is the time of the pandemic. Oh yes, too many fire trucks and ambulances but again this is covid time.
We are delighted that there are so many New York restaurants that have expanded their outdoor service to deal with the restrictions we must live with during the Covid-19 crisis. Most restaurants that I've gone to have kept up their standards during this difficult time. Nice Matin has unfortunately not done so. The service was very poor, the menu has been drastically shortened, the food was so-so at best, and the espresso was undrinkable. I hope they'll ge t back to normal soon.
The restaurants have tables outside and well spaced. Service and food was excellent
tough to create an atmosphere on the corner of 79 and Columbus but food always good.
A bit of a splurge since we’ve been dining at home 3meals a day! A nice place to catch up with a former neighbor who now lives In Chelsea.
Our first seat was on Amsterdam which was very noisy, they were kind enough to move us to a table on 79th street when making a reservation ensure you request the side street during Covid.
We ordered a medium rare steak frites to share, it was cooked well done. Had to ask for everything from plates to salt and pepper. The salad we ordered was basic and the fires were good. The second steak was still over cooked and not very high quality. The service was slow and weak, and there were only a handful of tables. They tried, but it was a really weak effort.
nice ambiance despite some noisy traffic, distancing of tables good and area pleasant. Food excellent,
service rather slow
Sat outside, as required. Moved to a more private and secure today. Waiter was busy, so not his fault, but he disappeared for a long stretch. My salad was good (not exceptional, but fine) but came without dressing. I had eaten half it before I was finally able to attract his attention. An expensive salad without dressing, in the end. The restaurant should have embraced this in some way. A gesture. Nothing. Food was good. My lunch partner also enjoyed his.
Alway exceptional 😀
this used to be a nice restaurant with nice food but, now it's aweful... over cooked fish, small portions for expensive items with nothing else on the plate... and to make matters worse there were two police officers watching the goings on at the Lucerne hotel next door where drug rehab, homeless, and convicted pedophiles are now residing... a lot of activity at that hotel now... we live 3 blocks away but, doubt we will go again.
The outside seating is clear and feels safe.
The service is great and the food is always of a very high quality. Especially recommend the Fava Bean Tortellini!
We are going back tonight ❤️
