Diner Reviews
  • "Ok, had a gift certificate and didn't know what to expect with it being in the food court. Went for lunch on the weekend, knew we wanted to have a glass of wine or two. After looking at the wine list online I decided to bring a bottle from home. Reasonable corkage, no problem at all. They also a short list of well chosen Chicago craft beers on tap. The food was very good, reasonably priced. Service was very good as well. Ambiance is ok, after all, it is in a food court. We were taking our time and our server was attentive but never rushed. All in all recommended.(we even got a few extra yummy cheesy rolls)"

  • "Our food selections were excellent and our waitress was friendly and attentive. The décor was boring and the noise level too high."

  • "I read good reviews so was surprised by the menu items. Didn't seem to be a specific theme but more of a bunch of unrelated items that shouldn't be together on the same menu. The two items we ordered weren't very good but the service was good."

  • "I frequent Mity Nice on the regular basis because of its close proximity to my work. Also, I enjoy several items on the menu."

  • "located behind the food court makes it difficult to locate but the food is usually very good. Hard to get great service before aplay seemed tight to get seated and served"

  • "We typically eat at Mity Nice when we are at Water Tower. Great selection of menu items, service is always good, staff are friendly. Highly recommend, however, it is best to make a reservation for lunch due to large crowds at Water Tower. Wait can be very long."

  • "We had a great pre Theater meal here. This is just basic good food - nothing fancy. The service was very good and our bill was a pleasant surprise with 3 drinks, 1 appetizer and 2 meals at $66."

  • "My sister and I brought our 81 year old mother here for lunch. We were seated right away, our waiter greeted us immediately, was friendly and gave us really good service. We enjoyed our food and Mom's remembrance of her favorite meatloaf dish did not disappoint. I had the tuna burger with sweet potato fries which was excellent. My sister loved her chicken sandwich, which she said was cooked well and juicy. We like the modern look of the restaurant and appreciate that it's located separately from the very busy food court. Nice location."

  • "I guess the same can be said for a lot of restaurants these days. But if you're looking for a good value, keep on searching. New menu items ought to be labeled as appetizer portions at entree prices."

  • "The turkey dinner has been a staple and one of our favorates over the years.A recent change is noticable.They eliminated their home made crandberry garnish that was excellent add on to the dinner.I assume for cost saving efforts."

  • "I've been with two people with gluten allergies and they can eat their bread... And it's delicious!! (Regardless if you have an allergy to wheat flour). I also recommend their blackberry margarita. "

  • "We both ordered the flatbread special. The salad was very good, the flatbread was just OK. The service was very slow, considering the restaurant wasn't really that busy when we were there. I probably won't go back. "

  • "Had a great time. Excellent service and great food."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I didn't expect much since it was in a restaurant tucked away in the Water Tower's food court; however, Mity Nice was just what the name implied. The appetizers were amazing, our hostess was fantastic and the main course was delicious. Perhaps the best part was how friendly the environment was for my daughter, despite the trendy interior."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "As usual, the restaurant served well-prepared comfort food in pleasant, casual surroundings. Our server seemed harried, rushing around to keep up with the diners. The food came out of the kitchen remarkably fast, just minutes after we ordered, but drinks were slower, and our server had to be reminded of our drink orders. This would be a good place to eat if you're going to a play nearby and you're running late, especially if you're not too thirsty."

  • "My meal was wonderful, from warm popovers to a fragrant salad (honey-champagne dressing!) to a strong local ale. The service was very good, both efficient and friendly. I enjoyed my experience there very much."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "It's time to revisit: Mity Nice Restaurant is a delightful place for lunch - a marvelous selection of sandwiches and apps. If I'm having a late lunch, their hot turkey plate with mashed potatoes, dressing, vegetable and cranberry sauce is sumptious. Also, the meatloaf plate with all the trimmings. The crisp fried mahi mahi sandwich is also an excellent choice. Cheese flavored pop overs are a free treat and very addictive. Wait staff is efficient and very charming. Also, a great place for dinner, before the theater or after shoppinng."

  • "This is in the back of the food court but once you're seated you don't notice it. Service was very good. Reasonable prices and good food. Glad we had a reservation, it was packed with people waiting outside for a table."

  • "When visiting Chicago, picking a place to eat can be a tough decision. MityNice was an incredible find! The experience all around was amazing. The host was very welcoming, service was outstanding and the food was wonderful. It was our first time dining and we were treated with dessert! This place was such a great find-out of only two nights we had we returned again the next day!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."
