Rotten Tomatoes, a review aggregator, reports that 56% of nine surveyed critics gave the film a positive review; the average rating is 4.8/10. Lawrence Cohn of Variety wrote, "A quintessential New York movie, The Night We Never Met takes a novel premise and develops it in fits and starts." Janet Maslin of The New York Times wrote, "The Night We Never Met is never lifelike enough to evoke the madly romantic New York atmosphere it seems to be after. The actors try hard, but they are hamstrung by too many broad strokes and silly inconsistencies."
