I live around the corner from Nice Matin and have been in at all hours of the day. During their first year I enjoyed the food but found the attitude and service problematic. I avoided the place. I was brought back earlier this year and I have been quite surprised. I have felt welcomed and attended to, listened to by waiter, etc Did they have a change in management? Are the waiters on Prozac? Couldn't tell you, but I am a happy denizen of Nice Matin these days.

We ate there on a beautiful Sunday afternoon around 4:00 p.m. Clearly, this is when the waitstaff would like to be on break and has had enough of the UWS clientele. Our waitress disappeared for 20 minute intervals after each time she came to our table. We could not get her attention and she was clearly frazzled. Waitstaff is not of the caliber that you would expect at a restaurant priced like this one. Food was very good but we didn't get much. We would go back for another try but certainly the expectations are lowered. They need to get some better waitstaff on board.

My husband and I recently had a very pleasant Sunday brunch. The restaurant is bright and cheery. The menu choices were plentiful, the food was excellent and the coffee was wonderful. The prices were very reasonable for the nice size portions. The service was excellent. Well worth the 10 minute wait.

We've been to Nice Matin twice and each time the food has been fantastic. However, the waiters, while very nice, seemed to be spaced out or distracted or just really tired, but the Sommelier was terrific - a real expert. The short ribs are some of the best we've ever had. Don't walk...run to this restaurant!

When my mom came to visit me, we went here. She said it looked "cute." So we went for lunch. Aside from some of the snobby "ladies who lunch" around us, the atmosphere was excellent. The food was amazing and the prices for the amazing food was just right. I have never been at night, but I would say it would be a good place to have a date as well. Try to go there when it's nice and sit outside or right by the open windows. I'll go back again soon.

Some people say the only place you can get a steak is a steakhouse, well they're wrong. Nice Matin has a great steak for an amazing value.

I've been to Nice Matin twice and had wonderful meals on both occasions. I've also had very good service. I recommend the short ribs and the steak frites. Both were wonderful. Considering the competition (in the same price range), this one is a winner!
