Party of 7, everyone ate something different, everyone loved it. Not crowded on a Thursday, so no problem that we lingered a bit.

Great experience this time - we’ve been to Cafe Niche a few times and the food has always been great, but this time, the waiter, Steve, really added to the experience. He had the bar make me a drink that wasn’t on the menu, since the drink I initially tried I didn’t like. He was really good-natured and pleasant. - the food was excellent - we will definitely be back.!

This is one of my favorite (actually maybe my very favorite) neighborhood restaurants. We have never been disappointed by the food or the service. Everything is different from what you normally see on other menus. The preparation is pure art. The portions have gotten bigger, too, I think. At our last meal we shared the shrimp and grits, which was fantastic and highly recommended as a starter. My wife had the glazed salmon with sweet potato mash and bok choy -- wonderful dish. I had the Morgan Valley lamb, which came on top of spinach and with baked potato wedges -- very satisfying and delicious. We topped that off with a tasty dessert. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive, and also extremely pleasant. This will always be my go-to place.

Super disappointing. Staff needs training. I am not surprised they do because the manager does as well. Menus brought to table dirty and tattered; only got excuses when pointed out; I was argued with. I may give Niche another chance. Next time, do not bring it to me dirty please.

We have always liked Niche as a good neighborhood restaurant, but our meal the other night was really above and beyond. Excellent menu choices all around (my steak medallions in marsala sauce were cooked perfectly as I liked them - rare) and very good value for the excellent quality - you would pay much more in similar restaurants in the downtown SLC area for food similar to Niche.

We enjoyed our meal. I had a salad and the salmon. Both were delicious. Good portions, not too little or too much, and the sweet potatoes were amazing. My husband had meatballs and the wedge salad. They were very flavorful and filling. The wedge had shrimp and was entree size.

Caffe Niche has an excellent, limited menu. You can expect your dish to be perfectly prepared with nuanced combinations of flavors and textures. I have been here over 20 times and have always been very happy and feel the food is a good value for the quality. I guarantee you will always be pleased with the chicken, lamb, beef or fish preparations. They are always cooked perfectly, never over or under done. This is a skill I have yet to master, hence, I eat here and let Chef Andy do it for me!

We sat out on the patio, which was very pleasant, except that there was a cat. It would sit by our table and crawl around our legs, which was very annoying. Isn't this a health code violation?

The menu is limited and the ingredients are always fresh. I have never been disappointed at Niche, and the prices are very reasonable. One tip is to always leave room for dessert, because it is "to die for!". Andy is an amazing chef, and I love seeing her in the open kitchen, she really knows what she's doing. The entrees are thoughtfully put together with unexpected flavors that work well together. The fish, beef or chicken is ALWAYS cooked to perfected, never over or under done....perfect, perfect, every time!

Great service! Cafe niche is my favorite brunch spot. The food is delicious and there are a lot of healthy options, and plenty of comfort food too! They have a really nice tea selection and some of the best staff in the area. Would definitely recommend for a date, it's quiet, cozy, and the patio is beautiful in the spring.
