We enjoyed a good meal made up of several small plates. Fun atmosphere. Many filled tables of friendly people eating and drinking wine.

I hadn't planned on eating Greek cuisine the day I wandered into Uncle Nick's Green Cuisine, but I was hungry and there was no wait here. I wondered if that wait was going to be indicative of the food quality, but at the time I didn't much care, I just wanted to be sat with a glass of cold water... More

Food was top notch. Literally the best grilled octopus I've ever had in the United States. My daughter gobbled up her pastichio and proclaimed it the best she's ever had -my little 7 year old foodie. Husband enjoyed his lamb immensely. Grilled vegetables were absolutely delicious too. This place is awesome. Filled with locals. And service was outstanding.

Great menu! This restaurant was a dining highlight of our mom/daughter weekend! The kids enjoyed the soup and kebabs & rice and the mom's enjoyed everything.

The food is great and service is fine, but a little $$$. I live in the area, and both order out and sit in. Sitting in is as expected but their delivery is often late, even when using their website. It always say 30-45min, which isn't accurate. A few times it has been in this time frame, but more often... More

We made reservations, but the man at the front door pretended to look at a list before putting us at a table under harsh lighting right next to the waiter's station under the balcony. There were plenty of other tables in nicer sections - get a divider so we don't have to watch the uneaten food get scraped into bins... More

We had a delicious early dinner on Sunday. We enjoyed the stuffed grape leaves and three dips for appetizers. For dinners we had pork, lamb and chicken kebobs along with the Greek lasagna. The only downside of the meal was that waitstaff never checked on us or asked if the food was okay. They almost seemed a little annoyed by... More

We had wanted a lighter dinner after a big brunch and heard this was a place to check out. We had some very good food, drama with it being lit on fire at the table, attentive waiter and manager and friendly people at other tables around us. The noise level was moderate and it was easy to chat at our... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
