    If you are looking for people-watching and cocktails, great outdoor spot. Food was pretty subpar for being on one the block with such great food. I would never go back.

    This was an unbelievable night. It’d be hard to find a better spot in the city to celebrate a 29th birthday at. The service was top-notch, the food and the drinks met our already high expectations and the memories will last a lifetime. Can’t wait to be back! And just to note, please pass the word on whatever Spotify playlist we were hearing was baller.

    The food was outstanding -- fresh, flavorful, and filling. We ordered the spicy marinated olives and the proscuitto crostini, and both were 10/10 appetizers. The lamb chops and mushroom risotto entreé was also incredible and cooked to a perfect medium. However, I did not feel welcome at Nia. From the moment my partner, mother, and I were seated, it felt like we were being rushed out of the restaurant. We had a reservation, and it was not busy. Everything we ordered came out quickly, which was nice, but we had hardly taken two bites of our entreés when we were asked if we wanted a box. Then, we were promptly handed the check before we even finished our bottle of wine. Again, the restaurant was not busy, and we would have liked to sit and maybe order another drink. It also appeared we were the only table receiving this treatment.

    I enjoyed dinner at Nia with my group of 8. The restaurant week menu was extended so we enjoyed dinner family style. Our server was attentive, explained the the dishes in our 7 courses. She was very helpful and flexible in accommodating our dietary restrictions. We had a very pleasant evening.

    I had such a phenomenal time here at Nia today. The service was very timely and helpful and the people working were extremely nice. The group I came with had a lot of dietary restrictions and the staff was well accommodating for everything. The food was also amazing. We had the restaurant week menu and I felt like every item was perfect. I highly recommend the skirt steak, the oxtail and soups. The restaurant week menu was also definitely the best value I’ve ever seen at a restaurant in Chicago and it left every member of our party extremely full. I will definitely dine back again!

    I went during restaurant week 2023. I loved the food, service, and restaurant. The music is kept low so that the people at your table can visit. I get so tired of yelling at restaurants with music too loud. Great for girls night out as well as date night.

    The restaurant was severely understaffed which made my experience less than ideal or what I’m sure is typically the case. The food was delicious but the time between each course was off. We also waited about half an hour for our dessert. Overall would come again but given that it was restaurant week I was hoping for a better experience.

    Unfortunately we did not have the best time at Nia during restaurant week. They were very busy and seemed to be understaffed which was surprising given restaurant week is going on. We had different waitresses throughout our time there which made it a bit confusing and our courses were coming out of order. This wouldn’t have been a big deal but it was an 8-course dinner and strange to get our Frittes separate from our Steak and our pasta after our steak. It just felt a bit chaotic and unprepared.

    Nia was a great pick for restaurant week 2023. We were seated and served promptly. The food was amazing and perfect portions. The ambiance was lacking and could use a refresh to compete with the other establishments in the west loop. What Nia lacks in ambiance, they definitely make up in flavor!

    Myself and two other friends came for restaurant week. Determining who the server was a bit confusing. Maybe the FOH was short staffed, so I did get up to go ask the “hostess” who the server at my table was because after being seated it took longer than acceptable to be greeted. The “hostess” stated because she assumed my entire party was not there she did not come to greet. Over the course of dinner, this particular woman, who in the end did not end of serving us was not very friendly. She was condescendingly “nice” throughout our entire experience. I’m not sure what the issue was, she was very offputting. I am glad that the other woman ended up serving us because the experience likely would have been far worse. On top of the fact that she provided incorrect information regarding the restaurant week ordering of dishes. As far as the food: French onion soup lacked flavor. It seemed “watery” Nia Salad was really good. Probably the best thing I ate out of the 7 courses The oxtail dish was interesting… The croquettes were unusually cool in the middle. Almost as if the croquette was cold prior to being deep fried and did not properly warm all the way through. I was terrified to eat it. And did not. The carbonara was the saltiest carbonara I’ve ever eaten. The pancetta (which is already salty) pieces were way too big & when paired with the sauce and pasta that may have been salted overwhelmed the dish. It made the dish inedible in my opinion. The skirt steak had a decent flavor, but it was a bit chewy.. And the crème brûlée dish…lovely flavor, but I was confused of why it was smothered in a heap of whipped cream. Overall, I was a bit underwhelmed with restaurant week. The server recommended we come back and try the regular menu because the food is so good, but based on the overall experience, I’m not sure if I wish to. I’m sure the chef is really good, but the menu lacked cohesiveness and many of the dishes were just okay..

    Contrary to other reviews, I was very unhappy with my experience. Also, I am not one to ever really negatively review a location unless it really rubbed me the wrong way... More below. I had the opportunity to try several of the dishes on Nia's 8 course menu during Chicago Restaurant Week, and I have to say, I was quite disappointed. One of the dishes I tried was the carbonara, which was unfortunately very salty and overwhelmed the other flavors in the dish. Another dish, the skirt steak, was extremely chewy and difficult to cut and eat. The churros, were also a letdown as they were under sweetened and lacked the richness I was expecting. In addition to the poor quality of the food, the service provided by the servers and staff was also quite disappointing. They were slow to respond to requests, and seemed clueless as to how to handle basic tasks. For example several servers walked past our table with empty glasses of water, looked at the table and kept walking. This happened on several occasions. It took a long time for even the simplest requests to be fulfilled, and overall, it felt like the staff was not adequately trained. Given that the service charge and gratuity were already included on the bill, I expected a much higher level of service. Overall, I was extremely dissatisfied with my experience at Nia, and would not recommend it to others.
