I had visited this restaurant for a date 3 years ago and had looked forward to returning ever since. Their octopus salad is phenomal, truly I have yet to be disappointed by anything I here. The service was warm, responsive, and really made our experience one to remember. I would recommend Nia to all my friends and family, an excellent choice for evening drinks, date night, or just a relaxed yet refined evening out.

Spent a wonderful evening at Nia. Service was great and we really enjoyed the variety of the Tasting Menu.

The food was fantastic. The service was ok. I do not recommend the wine pairings - it was the same wines as the wine flight, which is ok, but it wasn’t paired with the dishes and came in cups. I would not describe it as Chicago’s most romantic restaurant.

My girlfriend and I went here for an early Valentine's Day and had the 8-course prix fixe tasting menu. It was divine, plus half-priced bottles of wine on Tuesday! The food was delicious, the wine was wonderful, and the service was great! We even had an appearance from Nia herself. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back!

I cannot rave more about the food and service at Nia. My friend and I went for restaurant week and the amount of choices they have to offer it fantastic. My friend is vegan and at first we were unsure if we were going to be able to make the shared tasting menu work but our server Antonia was quick to offer up solutions to make sure that we both had plenty of options and plenty to eat between a meat eater and a vegan sharing food. The food was delicious and since it was a slow night for them, Antonia took extra time to answer all of our questions and make sure we were well taken care of. We will definitely be back! Particularly for the gnocchi and the bread pudding! Sooooo good!

Tried their testing menu as part of the restaurant week experience and everything was amazing. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. I've visited a few restaurants in the area and never thought to stop in before. My friend and I agree that we will definitely make time to come back. Also, if you try nothing else, I highly recommend the bread pudding. It was heaven.

Excellent choice for restaurant week, a great time to try something new. We will be back, for the food and the great service. We felt welcome the minute we walked in. Get the sangria, no matter what you do!!

It was first night of Restaurant Week and there was an 8-course tasting menu served family style, so this may not be representative of the everyday experience. But the 8 course categories were sufficiently varied that is was easy for all of us, including 1 vegetarian, to settle in dishes we were all very happy with. In addition, they accommodated our vegetarian with a half-portion of a ninth dish to balance out one of the meat dishes. Service was very friendly and efficient even though the place was full. Busing was also prompt, friendly and efficient. We found everything very fresh, flavorful and well presented. Cocktails were not exotic but reasonably priced and tasty. I found the ceviche particularly good---not aggressively sour and dominated by raw lemon or lime juice, but gentler, allowing the seafood flavor to come through. Salads were nicely dressed and balanced. First time there, and very pleased.

Service was great, and the sangria was delicious as well. Small plates was great to try a bunch of different options - good sizes and we had a good amount of leftovers. Hummus was really good, as well as the salmon, and lamb and feta meatballs. Great date spot - very cozy, romantic, and cute. Loved it!

Awesome Restaurant Week Menu! Eight courses with five enticing
choices within each course for only 33pp. Only catch is the whole table does it but we loved sharing the experience at such a great price and everyone loved the food selected and they made minor accommodation. All the dishes were super delicious and fresh. Loved the nia salad, hummus, caponata, scallops, meatballs and banana best. Loved the bottomless sangria for only 20pp and they were very generous with exceeding the hour and half time limit. The sangria was awesome, really enjoyed the cinnamon flavor and loved the red and white equally. Wiill definitely return.

The food was good. Unfortunately, we had to wait over an hour for a table even with a reservation. The staff was apologetic but there was no real explanation given. It seemed like this is something that happens often here.

I’ve been a patron at this restaurant for several years. I always order the bacon wrapped dates and lamb meatballs.

This visit, the bacon was dried out and over cooked, and the dates were gummy and tasted old.

My friend and I did mention this to our server but she appeared indifferent.

When we arrived, I informed the hostess who was also out server that I’d made reservation via Open Table, she acknowledged and verified on her check in screen but instead of checking me in, she canceled my Open Table reservation.

I’m the end, with a mostly empty restaurant, our server asked my friend and I to move where we’d been sitting for most the evening to another location??? This was in effort to accommodate a group that could have been accommodated at a different section without disturbing us.

Before my friend agreed to moving, the server made the move decision for us and started moving our tableware.

The server attempted to make a means by bringing free dessert 15 minutes later; dessert we didn’t want and most of which wasn’t touched.

My friend and I typically tip 20% or more but reluctantly gave a tip of close to 10%.

We will find a new place to enjoy our get togethers...

Three good is very consistently good. The service tonight was also very good. We generally like to go earlier when the noise level is lower, but our schedule didn't allow it.
