This restaurant is consistently terrific. The food quality never disappoints, it's not pretentious, but delicious and satisfying. The service is attentive and courteous. Nice selection of affordable wines. The noise level is just right, you can carry on a normal conversation, even in a full restaurant. Overall, a neighborhood jem.

Nice Matin had been my very favorite restaurant since its opening. My dinner there this week was extremely mediocre. The frisee salad was soggy and the candied walnuts were pitiful in the way they were prepared. The roasted chicken breast dish in no way compared to their past roasted chicken breast recipe. Is a new chef present? I was sorely disappointed . I always look forward to good weather to sit outside as the noise level inside is too high. On the other hand their "relative restaurant", I believe, Marseille has become much better and I would rate it a 5 on all counts.

Friends always recommended this place to me, but somehow I never made it there. Finally the amber-hued interior beckoned me and I had the best duck I've had in a long time. Succeeding visits led me to short ribs or for comfort at the end of a long weekend a pricey hamburger with fabulous pommes frites. Who knows some morning I might make it for a real nice matin. I hear the breakfast is very good.

At first i thought this place was going to be a little too stuck up but overall this restaurant was very good (as oppose to great); not taking anything away from it but it was only my first time. My wife had the chicken which appeared great but tasted a little bland, however still worth ordering. I had the Leg a lamb medium done, and it was JUST RIGHT. What also made it so special was how attentive the waitress was to us, and how nice she was. I had a 2006 Californian chardonnay and it had a very good fruity taste not too acidic of a taste, and just the right temp. Also, there wine list is AMAZING. I definitely would love to go again and see if my very good first experience was just a fluke.

Beware of the $35 Prix Fixed dinner! I dined here this past week and both my dining companion and I ordered the 3 course Prix fixed. The service was good, as was the food... then we received the check... they had charged us for each of the desserts ordered, though it should have been included in the $35. (Neither of us would have ordered dessert otherwise.) We did not take note of this mistake until after the bill was paid. I was subsequently told that this 'mistake' is common for Nice Matin.... very disapointing for a UWS "staple" restaurant to take advantage of its patrons.

Such a classy restaurant! The menu is exceptional! I really enjoyed my entire time at the restaurant, from stepping foot inside, to leaving! The service was very prompt and friendly! I would take anyone of my friends here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Go try it out! Youll be so happy you did!

this one of those places that no matter if this is your first or your twentieth time at the restaurant you always get a warm wellcome and a pleasant goodbye at the end of a very nice dinning experience., in this hard times it is good to have the option of having dinner with out having to spend a fortune, f.y.i. they have this thing of giving you a 10% dicount by just filling out a coment card, and I think that's great, I mean who doesn't like to get basicaly free stuff, you know , it's a win win situation. i go there every chance I have, it's worth trying if you haven't.
