    This restaurant seems to have trouble keeping good chefs. Half the times I go there it is disappointing, and Saturday was one of those nights. We both had the artichoke appetizer which was four mysterious rectangles that had been breaded, sauteed and slathered in ricotta, all awash in a marinara sauce. Carciofo Parm! No Italian cook would ever treat an artichoke with such disrespect; such a dish would be unimaginable on an Italian table.

    Table outside but near us had small children making a ruckus and screaming. Parents did nothing to control the children and even lingered while bothering all table diners in the cabana. We finally complained to the manager after they left who apologized and comped us a dessert and coffees. The children made the whole evening unpleasant but we should have complained sooner

    I had booked for our daughter’s graduation lunch having not been there before. Impeccably attentive gracious friendly server - she was fantastic - this meant so much and added to our happiness along w the delicious variety of fresh healthy entrees. The outdoor seating was perfect for a sunny day. Happy experience and memory!

    Good quality food, but way overpriced. $26 for a not very generous glass of wine. $300 for a dinner of 5 people, with one appetizer to share for the table, 1 glass of wine and no desserts. Not going back anytime soon.

    I’ve been to Nice Matin many times for lunch and dinner. The food has always been good. The service also has been good, except for the last two times I was there for lunch. Several of the servers need further training in customer service, e.g., asking if everything is okay, refilling water glasses, not disappearing for extended periods, etc. I will be back, but it’s now not my go to place.

    I have really enjoyed this restaurant for years but this time, our omelettes and eggs were overcooked and underseasoned. Not good. Service was great - I did not have time /patience to send back the eggs. The noise level was too much. It was Saturday brunch - a busy time and I like a feeling of energy but we really couldn't hear each other. I think they need to address that issue. This may have been an off day for the kitchen. I will try again

    Although we were late for our reservation (show at the Beacon ran long) they had no issue seating us. Service was stellar from the moment we walked into the door. Bread was hot and fresh, Tuna Tartare was impeccable. Mocktails were delicious (cucumber cooler was so refreshing). Steak Frites was so well cooked, fries perfectly fried and the bernaise sauce was well made. Mussels were amazing, so fresh, so delicately balanced as was the accompanying broth. Crème Brûlée was *chef’s kiss*—perfect. Enrique was excellent. Will absolutely be back.

    Nice welcome to our lunch at Nice Matin. Food great ... satisfying crepes with eggplant and goat cheese with berries and cream for dessert were spot on for a hot day. Iced tea is always really good here. The only problem? Our waiter. Person was attentive in taking our order. However, afterwards, he simply vanished and had NO interest at all in following up with any further needs. Had to flag down more helpful waiters to order a second iced tea and dessert. At the end of our meal, the original waiter re-emerged to breeze by and plonk down the check. Wonderful. More frequent visits and some smiles would have gone a long way to improve our overall experience.

    This is the best, most professional, most enjoyable breakfast/brunch on the West Side. Everything on the prix fixe is interesting and inventive. For example, the Gruyère omelet comes with delicious inserts of perfectly braised leeks, so instead of just a nice cheesy omelet you get the wonderful bits of mild, sweet leeks. Always order the American Bteakfast—it comes with really fresh squeezed orange juice, which you can watch them square at the machine at the bar. I have been served “fresh squeezed” at other places that clearly came out of a Tropicana or similar “fresh squeezed” carton. It doesn’t have remotely the same taste. One little caveat: we ordered an orange scone as a side. It was recognizably orange, but the texture was heavy and gummy. Enjoy the excellent whole grain toast that comes with your breakfast.
