Diner Reviews
  • "The service was fantastic and the food was delicious! Their gluten free menu is awesome, its rare when a restaurant will serve gluten free bread on a sandwich or burger!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The restaurant is a little tricky to find - you have to walk through two food courts. The servers are super friendly, and the food is tasty. A great place to meet friends for lunch or dinner. Relaxed vibe and you can hear your conversation."

  • "Jason H was friendly and knowledgeable, and made our dinner enjoyable."

  • "We loved the meatball appetizer. The salads were fresh and plentiful. We couldn't decide between sweet potato fries and traditional fries, so our waiter suggested half and half (to go with our tasty fish sandwich). We will be back! They were very busy on the weekend...glad we used open table to reserve!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "My friends and I went here because of their gluten free menu options. The restaurant definitely has a focus on the gluten free items. I ordered the chicken sandwich, my friend ordered the turkey plate and the other friend ordered the gluten free burger. Everything was delicious. The waiter was very nice and answered all of our questions, was always checking in on us and filling our water glasses. The free cookies at the end was a very nice touch (as they were delicious!). I would recommend this place to others and even go back! Initially I was worried because we had to walk through a food court, but after that , it was a great evening!"

  • "An oasis of quiet in Water Tower Place. Very much to choose from, all excellent. Service very attentive."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This is one of our go to spot to get away from the chaos of michigan avenue (once you get through the chaos of foodlife or whatever it's called now). Mity Nice have a great selection of salads, sandwiches and entrees...everyone was able to find something perfect (we had a gluten allergy and she had no issues without adjusting the menu). Service was friendly and efficient but not overbearing or rushed...there was a small line at 2pm on a Saturday so I'd definitely recommend a reservation at peak times. It can get lively in there when it's full so not the place for a quiet weekend lunch."

  • "The pot roast is the best ever. The staff so extremely professional. Never change a thing!"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "MitiNice is mighty nice! Excellent location for me, love their offerings particularly their popovers. Wished they offered their Asian Salad on the evening menu. It is a favorite of mine! A great hideaway spot!"

  • "It's a good place in the heart of Water Tower. The food and service are good and kids are always welcome."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "We have lunch at Mity Nice three or four times a month. The food is always very good, the service excellent and the ambiance is very pleasant. What's not to like? The restaurant is great and we recommend it to our friends frequently."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We always enjoy having lunch here. The food is good and the service is always excellent. It's a quiet oasis in the midst of Water Tower Place."

  • "I had a grilled chicken and my wife had a beef brisket dish. Both were very good. Our waiter was outstanding."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "I brought my family who came out of town to this restaurant and they really enjoyed it. They liked that it was right in the mall so they could walk around after eating. The food was delicious and our waiter was very nice and patient. He explained the menu to them multiple times which was really nice."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "My Colleagues and I choose Mity Nice for most of our team and group lunches, and sometimes just as an opportunity to get out of our Streeterville office on a bad day. The service is consistently friendly and efficient and the food is outstanding. I love the seasonal specials, and the cheese popovers."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We both had the turkey burger with a vegetable rather than fries. It was good and nicely prepared."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Although the menu is not exciting, the food was surprisingly tasty and original. The veggie burger was one of the best I've had, and I loved that they had fresh steamed broccoli available as a substitute for fries. It was also nice to be in Water Tower Place but tucked away from the crowds."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "We had a dinner consisting of three appetizers which were good and nicely served."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "We had a dinner made up of appetizers which was quite good with a great deal of variety."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "This is the first bad experience we had at this restaurant after many visits. My wife ordered the tuna burger and found it inedible. She complained to our server without any success so she just left it on her plate. I don't know whether the problem was with this menu item generally or just the preparation of my wife's particular burger. I was disappointed that our server did not offer to replace the tuna burger with another menu item. My wife complained to the gentleman at the reservation desk when we left."

  • "Hidden gem behind the food court in Water Tower Place. We stopped here with our Granddaughters before taking then to see Rudolph at Drury Lane. Service was great - food was good and fast. It was a great alternative to the hipper activity in the food court."

  • "Love this place. Their food is delicious and the service fantastic. We love their bread. You feel at home"

  • "Fair price, limited menu, good service. Food acceptable, but not great. Seating not comfortable ..tables too high in booths with chairs. Solid three stars."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "Great place to have a break form shopping or the weather! Varied drink options. Nice beer list and even a root beer list. Good service and vittles made with fresh ingredients. Better for omnivores. Vegetarian options are limited."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Our server was pleasant and efficient,and when I asked him to return a wilted salad and bring a fresher one, he immediately accommodated my request. The chicken paillard that I ordered for the main course was good but a little oily. I was disappointed, overall, with the experience, having dined there in the past and found it more polished, and the food better too. The loud pop music playing on the speakers was intrusive. I don't know if I'll be going back any time soon."
    Dined on 1/13/2014
  • "We have lunch at Mity Nice on a regular basis and are always very pleased. The food and service is always excellent. We always make reservations and are always seated very promptly. We only have lots of good things to say about Mity Nice and their staff. Jim H."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "The best thing about Mity Nice is that you can book so when we were on a tight time schedule for the theater over the holidays it meant we knew we wouldn't be taking any risks of standing in queues. The food was mediocre and service was adequate. I wouldn't go out of my way to go back here again but if the need arose again where I was on a tight schedule downtown I would consider it."

  • "service alittle lacking this time....The place was not busy either."

  • "I have not been to "Mity Nice Grill" in a number of years, especially before it was remodeled. I had heard mixed reviews about the food and service from others, but my partner and I were quite satisfied."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "I have been to Mity Nice many times, and always enjoyed it, but always just with adults. Over the holiday season, I went there with 2 young nephews and had a terrific experience. After time in the Lego store and other crowded and noisy places, it was so nice to just sit in a pleasant, quiet place and have a leisurely lunch at a reasonable price. The boys loved the place, the kids' menu was better than most, and the quotes on the wall prompted discussion about how doing good for others gives life meaning. Definitely will be back the next time we're in the Water Tower area."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "A great sit down place in the midst of the hustle of the cafe style Water Tower eateries. Great food, great service, humorous atmosphere. Host cancelled my Open Table reservation, but fixed it up after we left."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Great place to bring the kids. Very kid friendly with drink & food for the adults."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Mity Nice has the best flatbread in town. This time, it was topped with bacon, Brussels sprouts, and cheese. This ultra-thin, crisp flatbread makes a tasty meal or, for others, a good starter. Had the Orchard side salad with it. It was fresh tasting, with interesting greens, apples and almonds."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Mity Nice Bar & Grill is tucked in at Water Tower Place and is a true hidden treasure. GREAT food, GREAT service, GREAT prices. What more could you ask for. We will definitely be returning!!!"

  • "We were there for a special outing with our kids. It was our son's birthday and he has a severe food allergy. The service was excellent and the staff took great care to ensure that we weren't served anything that could have posed an issue for his allergy. Finding someplace family friendly with good food and high awareness of allergens is rare. They were Mity Nice was excellent!"

  • "Great food!! and our server was amazing. no problem splitting bills and kept the drinks coming faster than we could drink them. Loved everything about it."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "This was my third time dining at this restaurant; and the first for the others in my party. It was a pleasant atmosphere. It allowed us to hear each other so we could catch up. The food was terrific! It was enjoyed by all! The service was lacking this time, however. We had to wait for the waiter or someone to come refill our drinks. Other than that, he was excellent. He was smiling, courteous, and accommodating. Nothing negative to report for this dining experience. I know I will enjoy again!"

  • "We had a 1:30 lunch reservation but were not seated until shortly after 2:00. The manager was very apologetic and said he would have appetizers waiting at our table for us when we were finally seated. We were given FOUR appetizers, all of which were delicious. Our wait was long, but the free appetizers made the wait worthwhile! ."
