If you are looking for a completely unremarkable experience for your tastebuds, this is the place. From the unseasoned grilled seabass swimming in a bed of oil (for $22) to the unintentionally hysterical waiter, who spoke in an oh-so melodramatic whisper tone, the Nice Matin experience was extremely underwhelming. The good things about this place to this UWSider: location and the nice decor.

Had terrible service the night I went: it took forever for us to get our menus, trying to get some bread was a Herculean task, waitress, while nice, was flighty and neglected us for a long time, and the sommelier was very invovled in kissing and chatting with his (mostly female) customers. Food was okay; good value for the price, although the hot chocolate would be more accurately described as semi-hot chocolate. Am going back for a business function, and I hope that my first visit was an anomaly as I think the neighborhood can use a restaurant like this (once it gets its act together).

Call me American, but when I visit french bistros I always order the same thing -- escargot, steak frittes, creme brulee, and lots of grape juice in between. I believe this consistency qualifies me to compare and contrast....I won't, but here's how I rate 'em in descending order: SQC, Nice Matin, Avenue, French Roast. Always looking for a little better...please let me know.

NIce Matin is a really great place. The staff and the manager/owner make the customers feel welcome and happy to be there. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. Great value especially to an Upper West Sider.
