Great location near MSG for a concert. Food was delicious. Service was a bit cold and unfriendly but I would definitely return!

We sat at the bar and had an amazing time. Great service, cool ambiance and really good food. Had lobster bisque, French onion soup, sea bass and seafood spaghetti.

Service was friendly, but not constantly hovering. Food was good. We visited on Thanksgiving and had the turkey special. With our reservation we were seated immediately. It’s very close to Madison Square Garden, so very convenient before a game or show. For NYC, prices are as reasonable.

Unfortunately, I ate here on Thanksgiving and was extremely disappointed. I can not review the main dinner menu, but the special Thanksgiving entree of Herb Roasted Turkey with baby carrots, sage stuffing, mashed sweet potatoes and cranberry-orange relish was quite abysmal. The baby carrots were hardly "baby" and tasteless in the bargain. Stuffing was bland, but the mashed sweet potatoes were delicious. However, the Herb "Roasted" Turkey turned out to be turkey "roll" - like mystery lunchmeat with no turkey flavor or texture at all. At $27, not acceptable.

This is such a great find in the MSG area; most restaurants in the area are mediocre. The food and ambiance are excellent; and if you are attending an event at the Garden or taking a train, this should be your go-to spot. Niles should be chosen over Pennsy for certain.

Niles is conveniently located across from penn station, the Filet was done perfectly, the service was excellent. Niles needs an update of its 1960's/70 decor.

Exceeded our expectations. Will highly recommend to friends and family. Food fresh, beautifully presented, delicious. Atmosphere modern, clean, upscale. Staff pleasant, helpful, never felt rushed. Convenient to Amtrak Penn Station. Will try Happy Hour next trip.

The food was very good and the prices were great - the bar is at street level and has a wall of windows so it gets a lot of outdoor light but the restaurant is a half flood down so it has no windows, no outside light and it's kind of bland, all white. But the food was so good, we didn't care! It's not noisy either.

Perfect place for pre MSG show dinner. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Green salad with grapes and goat cheese was dressed in a deliciously balanced vinaigrette. Scallops over butternut squash puree were cooked to perfection and generous in quantity. Swordfish that hubby had was also very good as evidenced by his empty plate. Gelato for dessert was our sweet ending. Great food at a reasonable price served with a smile-a gem in NYC!

Great food and service for a 7pm show at Madison square garden. Sword fish was delicious. My date had the scallops and shrimp and she liked them. Service was efficient. We only had an hour and fifteen minutes. We did not feel rushed. We had salad and soup to start. They were good too.

We had a 6 pm reservation, but arrived early (5pm). We were prepared to have a drink at the bar, but were shown to our table, in a quiet area of the restaurant.
The waiter was very attentive, and brought our drinks promptly.
The food was excellent, seared scallops were tender and sweet.
Being close to Madison Square Garden was a plus.

They need to hire more staff. The waiters looked overworked and very stressed. It took a very long time between services: between being seated and ordering, between finishing drink and receiving next, between finishing meal and receiving check. There just didn't seem to be enough staff to service the room properly. We enjoyed the food and especially for the price in this area, so I'd still recommend it - but being in the location that they are, they need to be better prepared for the busy room that I don't imagine calms down very often.

This was not our first time to Niles, but our visit was disappointing. After our waiter took our drink order, then the Food order, he was incognito for the duration of our meal until it was time for dessert. After our dinner arrived, he never came by to see if our food came out ok, or if we needed anything, our first round of drinks were long gone, and a second drink with our meal would have been nice. We never got refills on our water, which we could have used. The food was ok. While my scallops and shrimp were piping hot, the quinoa was warm at best. The restaurant was not overly busy, but they did seem short staffed. I will think twice before going back

We have friends who stay in the hotel often and eat at the same table in the back all the time, and we are lucky enough to join them often. The great thing is that IT'S QUIET even when the restaurant and bar are full. The service is excellent, and the food is very very very good. The other night, I was having some health issues and asked if they could just grill a piece of salmon for me instead of adding all the other stuff and they did, and it was excellent! Done with grace and warmth. Excellent menu, food always fresh.

We always go to Niles when we are in Manhattan. Consistently great food and service. Also, reasonable prices. If we are celebrating a Birthday they bring out a special dessert no charge. Highly recommend Niles.
