Petros the waiter is a Greek God! 8/2/2010

I stumbled across this restaurant one summer day walking aimlessly around Hell's Kitchen. I was feeling very lonely that day and thought some good food and a bottle of wine would help lift my spirits. I walked in and was seated promptly, which I liked. My waiter, Petros, was simply incredible. When I first saw him approaching, I must admit, I was a little scared. He was very imposing and looked like he didn't really shave or iron his clothes, but as soon as he spoke I felt completely at ease (and strangely fascinated). I was visibly flustered and Petros, seeing this, calmed me with a simple ""Ish OK!"" I think he was trying to say ""It's Ok"" but couldn't quite pronounce it right, being Greek and all. I found this irresistible. The restaurant was in between the lunch and dinner shifts, thus very quiet, which allowed Petros to give me his full attention which I savored more than the delectable greek cuisine which I was served. We talked and Petros told me about being a little boy in Greece, running and playing on the numerous islands during the summer months. I could have stayed there all night with him. Pros: Petros Petros Petros... and the food, but who cares. Cons: That Petros has two days off a week(wed and sun). more

Bad service, Bad food, Bad restaurant 8/15/2009

The bald headed waiter was a real peice of sh*t. Totally ignored my table and simple requests. This guy had a real attitude and needs a swift kick in the rear. The food made us sick.. I would say you can have better dining experience in a homleless shelters soup kitchen. BEWARE OF THIS PLACE! Cons: spoiled food, Horrible waiter more

Take a little vacation @ Uncle Nick's Ouzaria on 9th Ave. 3/28/2008

This is perfect place to stop and smell the roses; I loved the cheery atmosphere. Great place to go sip wine and pick and share a variety of mouth watering dishes. I felt like I was at a little wine tavern in Santorini. I recommend the shrimp saganaki or the flambeed Saganaki is a good way to impress your date while you sample from their impressive wine list. Pros: Best Greek food I've eaten in NYC Cons: the tapas bar is good for small groups and dates more

Best Greek Food in Hells Kitchen 1/23/2008

I?ve had dinner reservations as well as take out order from Uncle Nicks. The staff has always been courteous and attentive, the food is delicious and the restaurant itself is very clean. I love the relaxed atmosphere. I strongly recommend Uncle Nicks. Pros: Good FOOD Cons: No NJ locations more

good lunch 7/13/2007

I had a great souvlaki chicken sandwich today...the only drawback was that it seems to take forever and the order girl seems really overwhelmed. I'd like to go back and try dinner, although it seems suprisingly expensive for what it is. Pros: good food Cons: slow service more

Makes you realize why the Greeks don't have an empire any more 6/20/2007

Rude, unhelpful and liars to boot. Despite my reservation I was given what I thought was the worst table so I asked to wait until another one opened up. Ten minutes later I was given an even worse table, opposite the kitchen door, where they stacked the plates. When I asked the waiter to move us to a table i saw that had opened up, he told me there was no table available. Who you gonna believe, me or your own eyes? more

Flaming cheese 2/1/2007

If you like cheese, try the flaming cheese. You won't be disappointed. Otherwise, I always get either the gyro plate or the Spanakopita. The place is always crowded, so you know that the food is good. Just don't sit outside on the back patio in the summer cause you will get dripped on by the air conditioners. Pros: Good food. Cons: Sometimes there is a wait. more

The worst service outside of Somalia 12/26/2006

DONT GO!!! Pros: decent food Cons: everything else is horrible more

Best Greek food in NY! 12/17/2006

While exploring the hell's kitchen area, I found this place by ""mistake"" or more likely by some good luck. We walked up & down the streets around there looking for a decent priced place to eat dinner, when we decided on a place across the street...the menu selection was bland and the service lousy - never saw our waiter after he seated us, left after 10 minutes...That's when we went to Uncle Nick's. The food was DELICIOUS, and plenty of it! What flavor on the meats! The lamb and pork just melted in my mouth. The layers of flavors were intoxicating! And the flaming cheese...YUM. It was tasty and perfectly ""flamed""(?). We took home a couple of desserts, which were incredible. The service, including the handsome Greeks with their accents, was also outstanding. Our water never went empty and our food came within minutes after our horsdeurve (cheese). They have an impressive selection of Greek and other wines, and the one the waiter recommended was perfect with our meal. I can't wait to visit again then next time I'm in NY. Pros: Flavors, menu selection, service, atmosphere, amount of food Cons: only open until 11 pm more

Best Greek Salad 10/31/2006

If you love Greek Salad, Uncle Nicks is the absolute best. Also, the restaurant is well decorated, the waiters are very nice, and all the food is great. Whenever I am in the area I try to go to Uncle Nicks. more

Worst Service Ever 9/15/2006

I placed an order for delivery at Uncle Nick's on a Saturday night. I waited for 35 minutes when my food had not arrived, so I called to check. They said it'll be on its way soon. After 20 more minutes of waiting without the food, I called again and the Manager now said that he does not even see my order in the system!!!! and wanted me to place my order again!!! He never apologized and even hung up on me. I have never eaten at this restaurant before and I will NEVER try it again. Do NOT place a delivery order at this place!!! more

Awesome before Show Dinner! 6/17/2006

The meat and sworfish were cooked perfectly here! I also thought the Octopus was very very good. My boyfriend and I had happy hour drinks next door and moved over here for dinner. It was reasonably priced for the area and also my favorite restaurant during my 1 week stay in NYC! They had large portions which I felt bad leaving behind since we were going to a show afterwards. I highly recommend it! Pros: had half bottles of wines and great, perfectly cooked food Cons: large portions, so i felt bad leaving it since I was going to the more

Not impressed 8/30/2005

Two simple requests: (1) Could the fish dip be put on a plate separate from the three other dips in an appetizer since I am vegetarian. Response: ""You're that strict!? No it can't be put on a separate plate. I'll put a tomato between the dips."" No thanks. (2) Can the spanakopita be baked, not microwaved, since the filo dough becomes soggy and unpleasant when microwaved. Response: ""No. The oven is off."" (It was 9:30 p.m.) More expensive than a diner with food and service that don't match the best diners. Pros: Good location, Water glass refilled, Promising interior Cons: Poor customer service, Food not great, Prices too high more

Fresh Fish 7/26/2005

Great place for fresh fish, simply prepared (e.g. brushed with olive oil and broiled), with big portions, and the price is reasonable. Service is good, but rushed (careful when you stand may be crushed by a waiter rushing by). My only complaint is that it is cramped and noisy (better in summer with the back garden). Pros: fresh fish Cons: crowded more

Thumbs Up For Uncle Nick 7/6/2005

Sometimes the staff is really rude, but the food is remarkably good. A couple of years ago, this place was a deal and a steal. Now its expensive and crowded during most nights. Get take out instead. Pros: Yummy Food Cons: Crummy Service, Prices more
