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

The service remains excellent, but the pork souvlaki was more like a briquet! I like my meat well done, but this meat required an extra set of teeth. I would go again, but provide some coaching on how you like you meat!

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

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.

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.
