Had breakfast and dinner at this restaurant and could not complain in any way about the food or service. They also had a very knowledgeable wine waiter who convinced us to try wine from New York state and I must say that I was very glad I went with their choice :-)

If you are looking for a pleasant environment for breakfast in upper west side I recommend Nice Matin highly. My double shot latte was fantastic, and the french toasts which came with fresh strawberries and a scoop of mascarpone. It was delicious- and the best French toast I have ever had, which tells a lot as I always order French... More

The Eggs Benedict is incredible! It's a nice atmosphere and good food. Between Broadway St. and Amsterdam St. on the upper west side.

The Lucerene Hotel gave me a coupon to this restaurant. Went there for breakfast early on a weekday morning. Service was quick. Prices were typical for New York.

As a local who lives nearby, I walk past this restaurant often and see that it is frequently busy and sometimes full, but the clientele seems to be tourists staying in the attached hotel. Having avoided this place after some unpleasant dinners months ago, I took a chance and met a friend there for breakfast / brunch today and quickly... More

Had a great time here with a large group (well, 7 of us) having a celebratory reunion dinner. Interesting and varied menu, very good & interesting food, friendly & efficient staff - upbeat place. French, but besides the usual classics - steak & french fries (which did look terrific) and the enormous burgers (which the guys in our party loved)... More

Over the years I have had many meals at Nice Matin and have gradually watched it decline in terms of service and food quality. In our last visit we walked out after waiting 10-15 minutes for a menu and wait person. Interestingly, there were 4 wait staff within 5 feet of our table, giggling and chatting. My sense it that...

Pretty good for an early business breakfast meeting, good and fast service but the place does not really offer anything else which would be special. With this corner location on 79th street, more than this could be done ..

I was on a business trip and stayed at a nearby hotel. I had a great table with an awesome view of the street and passers by. The waitor recommended a tasty Bordeaux which i complemented with the mussels and fries (enough for 2.) I felt very comfortable as a person dining alone and had great service.

The food was above average, but not great. A bit overpriced, but the atmosphere and location made up for it.

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.
