We are french and had never had the (strange) idea of going to a french restaurant during a visit in NYC before. Nice matin was a good surprise. Waiters were professional, atmosphere was the right balance between busy and quiet, and the food was perfect, not mentioning the wine list. Prices are a little bit overestimated though. A little word to Upperwestsider: you should give up French restaurants now.

I've been to Nice Matin twice and I've experienced rude service regarding their seating policy. The waitstaff/hostess were disorganized to say the least. On my second visit, I was meeting a couple of friends who were already at the bar. They were assured by the hostess that as soon as their party arrives, we'd be seated promptly in five minutes. Well, their meaning of prompt stretched for another forty minutes where we had to constantly remind them to get us a table. The food was bland for the price, especially the weird salad mixed with potato chips. I don't understand why there are so many positive reviews when there is a negative consensus among a lot of my friends who live here about Nice Matin. Are we missing something?

A wealth of choices, all well prepared and generous - great sharing/tasting posibilities for the table. Open all hours, and always lively. Friendly service and fun environment, but it's all about the delicious food - which can never get boring because there are so many options.

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.
