This was our second visitThis was our second visit to Niche. The service is fabulous, and the food was excellent with one exception - the desserts were a little bit disappointing. Otherwise, we were extremely happy with the meal.

Thye best around!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Evening!We celebrated my husband's birthday at Niche. They handled our food allergies without a problem. Steve (our server) is a gem! We had the beet salad, fois gras creme brulee, lamb, and scallops. All were wonderful! Dessert was a cheese course and an apple trio. Both were surperb!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a special birthdayAs always, the menu was excellent and preparation was elegant. Jeffrey was our server again, and once again, not only did he have an immediate and colorful description of any item about which we had questions, but was attentive without hovering.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll definitely be back.We'll definitely be back. Fantastic wine list, wonderful menu and unique/delicious desserts.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food! Really differentFantastic food! Really different items on the menu, for all you foodies, out there. The wine list is quite extensive and the bar is top notch (the hubs was most impressed with their stable of scotch). The service, though, is impeccable. When making our reservations via Open Table, I mentioned it was a special occasion with friends visiting from out of town. Upon our arrival, they brought us toasting glasses of Champagne (unsolicited). Nice touch! Our server, Jeffrey, was a real gem! So knowledgeable about not only the menu, but describes the flavors and spices which highlight each dish and he does so with such verve! This was our 2nd visit, both special occasions, and we will be back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe portions were a littleThe portions were a little small, even for a small-portion restaurant. But the bread, food and service were outstanding.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply exceptional. An experienceSimply exceptional. An experience that would stand shoulder to shoulder with any high end restaurant anywhere. An hour before arriving, we were given an unsolicited thumbs up for Niche as a place for foodies. That assessment was spot on.
We walked into a nice cozy atmosphere. Lively conversations all around, not overwhelming though.
Wait staff was there to assist , not rush . Our server was new to the restaurant, but not to the business. Every and all question answered. Plenty of suggestions when asked. Once the entrees were served, she walked us through our meal nearly to the individual ingredients, per our request. Wine suggestions were on the mark.
The meal was wonderful. It is simple, you have go.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI love that Chef Serena hasI love that Chef Serena has a hand in everything, from greeting us at the door, to being the creative genius in her kitchen. This is what makes part of this experience so special. The food is beautiful to look at, and the drink options are endless. My hungry husband had the reasonably-priced 5-course tasting menu and did not need a drive-thru meal on the way home--very generous portions. We are consistently treated like friends, whether just at the bar or in the formal dining area. Sidenote: You do not have to spend your fortunes if you go for the small plate menu at a high-top table in the bar area. I love supporting the cause of this "niche" of an establishment!3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice atmosphere, attentiveVery nice atmosphere, attentive weight staff and delicious food.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to Niche manyI have been to Niche many times. It was very good this time. I would recommend it
to anyone3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing but smallNiche is one of our favorite restaurants and we are defanetely foodies. My dish was a little small this time...could have had a little more there as I was still a little hungry for more. I had the scallops. I've never felt that way before at niche. The food was amazing as usual, just would have picked one of the other selections next time. Steak tartar and foie grae appetizers were wonderful and highly recommend. Always look forward to going back.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNiche was a delight from beginningNiche was a delight from beginning to end. It is a quiet room (even with a full house) and that in itself is rare. Service was impeccable and the food was beautifully prepared and delicious. The recommended bottle of wine which accompanied the meal was perfect. A solid five stars in every respect. Well done Niche! Cannot wait to see you again.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I love thisMy husband and I love this place. The food is fantastic. The atmosphere is quiet, warm and romantic. It is a tiny place so I would not recommend this location to families with small children. If you are looking for excellent food and wine this is the place to go. No one compares in the Geneva area.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing as always. JefferyAmazing as always. Jeffery is the best server... Everything is just SPOT on!2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeWonderful experience. Our waiter, Jeffrey, was superb. Having at least 2 or 3 bottles of wine under $50.00 would be appreicated.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service by JeffreyThe food and service by Jeffrey was impeccable!

It is why I ever bother to dine anywhere else. Niche is that wonderful, each and every time.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply great and unique food.Simply great and unique food. Have been to Niche twice and it is outstanding!2/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved our experience atWe loved our experience at Niche! Lovely, intimate dinner with delightful service!2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely, but still hungry!I would have given 5 stars on overall and food if it weren't for the very skimpy dishes . . . Spinach "salad" was about 7 spinach leaves laid across the plate with almost non-existent special cheese, which I would have appreciated an actual taste of. The cod was very good (small pieces), but the broccoli/cauliflower mix wouldn't have satisfied an ant! When you pay higher prices you don't expect to be hungry after you get home. On the plus side, service was great and the ambiance was very nice. My husband's goose liver appetizer was to die for and his Ahi tuna was excellent, as well. I suppose they want you to still have room for dessert, but we are suger-free people. I would go back but would ask about portion sizes next time!1/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThere was a mix up on whoThere was a mix up on who was serving us. But once that was resolved, the service was amazing. Thanks for a wonderful evening.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful surprise!Finding Niche online was a wonderful surprise. We celebrated my husbands birthday on the 24th of January and it made his day! Highly recommend this as a "special occassion", dining experience or take a special person out for a relaxing and memorable time.1/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular food and service.Spectacular food and service. Very inventive food. Chocolate mousse in an orange shell that had been sous vide, extraordinary.1/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
