Nice Matin is a great place for lunch. It's great place to meet people. The menu is perfect. The food and service are excellent. I've come in as late 3 or 3:15 for lunch. I also think Nice Matin is great for after the theatre or after performances at Lincoln Center. The restaurant is a real plus for our neighborhood.

Went on Thursday nite date with my girlfriend and we both left loving our entire dining experience. Service was excellent from arriving all the way through dinner. Highlights were the extensive wine list and delicious desserts. We even lingered at our table well after paying the bill and felt no pressure from staff to leave because they needed the table (it was a busy nite). All I can say are good things and if you go you won't be disappointed.

I've been to Nice Matin twice -- and I'm not a New Yorker. The food has been consistently delicious and we ordered totally different things each time except for the panisses. The panisses are not to be missed, and where else can you get them. Both times service was very good, despite the crowd. OK, it's a bit noisy but less horrid than many places. The negativity of these reviews is a little surprising to me also, and I also have written my share of coruscating reviews.

My husband and I have been to the restuarant about 5 times now. Their steak frites is great as well as saturdays special entree. The food is really fresh and priced well. We haven't had a bad experience yet. I Guess we're just going on the right nights.

With all the options available in the city, this would definitely not be on my radar. I agree with an earlier review that if someone were taking me out, I'd go along with it, but that's about it. Mediocre, to say the least.

The negativity of posted reviews are surprising. We have had nothing but excellent meals and above average service. The service is, to be sure, variable but ranges from very good to above average. The service would rank a bit above comparable places that we visit with similar frequency in the area such as Ocean Grill, Ruby Foo, Josies, and SQC. The decor is pleasant. As early diners, our main complaint is that the staff has difficulty actually seating at the nominal 5:30 opening time.

I'm surprised at all the negative reviews (and I often write them). I've been to NIce Matin about 5 times now, maybe 6 and I have to say, we had an absolutely heavenly waitress who seemed to really care about us. I've had the short ribs (divine!), great soups, great salads. The hamburger is to die for if you like them. My friends enjoyed their fish very much. Lots of tasty items and always fresh. What gives? It's so much better quality than say, the overtouted Cesca and Ouest.
