Recently I again dined at Uncle Nick's and ordered the lamb shank, which the menu described as "tender" lamb. It sounded good, but the lamb was not at all "tender." In fact, it was not edible, as it was very, very tough. In addition, there...More

Lovely wee Greek restaurant on 9th ave, we enjoyed massive portions of moussaka and chicken kebab, both served with rice and salad. Lovely Greek red wine to accompany, dessert portions of baklava and galaktaboreko were massive - sirloin steak size - and delicious. Service attentive...More

I'm always happy to go to Uncle Nick's when I'm in the area. Authentic Greek food at reasonable prices. Great hot and cold appetizers and I especially love the grilled octopus. Lots of great fish and seafood too. Thanks.

Had lunch here with a cousin who is married to a Greek. We were not disappointed. Great ambience and the staff were awesome. We just ordered an array of appetizers and they were all excellent. The pita bread was constantly refilled. Reasonably priced.

Welcoming atmosphere with ample service, best feta cheese ever on salads, great pita, very big selection of fish entrees and incredible baklava. I have been here before and am already looking forward to my next visit. Reasonable prices for this neighborhood.

We ordered the four dips combo. The generous portions of tzatzki, tarma, eggplant and scordatia were nicely divided by tomato slices and served with warm pita. Usually when you get a combo, one of them disappoints, but not this time. All were good. The price...More

If you like Greek food, this is an okay place for a quiet lunch. It was pretty empty when we were there on a recent Saturday afternoon. The moussaka was fairly good with accompaniments of rice and salad. Since the moussaka had potatoes in it,...More
