Went there with a friend on new Years day for brunch. Very good atmosphere. Had an omelette with some side sausages. Food looked good and tasted nice. You have a lot to eat. Bread pain d'épice was succulent!!!

Had chicken paillard. It was presented beautifully on the plate but was lacking in taste. The grilled octopus appetizer was very good. Service could have been better.

I know it's New York but we spent too much money on food that was, well, average. At least for breakfast. Frittata; goat cheese omelette; coffee for two. $50 with tip. Kind of what you expect in New York depending on the place but the quality was only fair. Overcooked eggs for the omelette; overly dry frittata. Average, diner-style potatoes... More

We ate breakfast here twice and supper once. We were well-pleased with all our meals. The interior is attractive. The breakfast menu is varied and good. Our supper was excellent too. The staff is friendly and efficient. Breakfasts run about $20, but this is NYC.

Too busy in the morning. I got coffee served then waited another 25 minutes to place an order. Not good.

I've visited Nice Matin during an annual trip for the past 6 years. The food is consistently excellent and the service attentive, professional and prompt. I enjoyed breakfast (2), dinner (1) and brunch (1) during my NYC stay next door. The sommeliers are helpful. The restaurant can be noisy, so if you want to converse easily when the restaurant is...

I had looked at the menu for Nice & Martin and while expensive I thought it worth a try for a celebratory dinner. I was a little taken aback at the prices for dinner, much more for the same dishes they served for lunch (which is the menu I had seen). But I went ahead and ordered the steak frites... More

Found it while walking by. Very nice atmosphere, good food and service. Go with the American Breakfast. Includes any entrée, coffee and juice of fruit plate for one price.

I visited Nice Matin for my birthday with some friends. I specifically picked it because of the menu - I love French cuisine- and the location. We were seated right away and oddly enough, the waiter tried to take two place settings away from out table of four before we even sat. We reminded him that we were a party... More

We took two good friends to dinner here recently and really enjoyed the beautiful decor, the pleasant and efficient service, and the delicious food. A great choice for a restaurant to entertain on the Upper West Side.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
