It seemed like a safe choice from Trip Advisor reviews, and while the staff was friendly and the restaurant and bathrooms were clean, the meal was mediocre. Both my business colleague and I were underwhelmed. The serving was huge, but the salad was under dressed...More

The Grilled Octopus, served temperature hot, was tender and succulent. It was bathed in a delicious oil/balsamic vinegar sauce. One of the best I have tasted. The Vegetable Moussaka portion was ample enough for two meals, and was excellent. Made fresh, it was tasty, the...More

Looking for a fresh catch on the West Side? Discover Uncle Nick’s! He was one of the first in the 80’s to bring fresh, moderately priced Greek food to Manhattan, in family-size portions, and he’s been there ever since! We’re not fancy, we don’t dim the lights and our dishes are made to eat, not admire – but when you’re in the mood for a friendly, festive meal – with lots of laughter, good spirits, and generous portions of hearty, Greek cooking, Uncle Nick’s is the place for you.
