Niche began its story ten years ago when the historic post office in picturesque downtown Geneva was transformed into a space to bring the community a new source of culinary enlightenment. The response to our quest was well received and encouraged the evolving staff to continually strive for perfection. Delving farther into the traditions of the Earth’s diverse cultures, our goal is to balance the exotic with the familiar. Global diversification of ideas and practices introduces guests to a whole new experience each time they dine with us.  An accompaniment to our rotating menu ranging from Small Plates to well orchestrated Entrees is an impressive list of carefully selected beer, wine, and spirits.

The food was outstanding. Service was slow. Very busy. Excellent choices of beer. Portions of food were small for the price.

Carrot soup (paleo friendly) was OUTSTANDING!! Salmon dish was creative and tasty. Wine selection by the glass is good (also have an extensive wine by the bottle menu). Service was perfect - Enough attention to see we had everything we desired and yet never intrusive so we could enjoy our conversation. Prices are not conducive to everyday dining on my budget, but for special occasions or a nice evening out once a month or so it’s perfect. I would highly recommend dining here, but be sure to make a reservation

We went to Niche for my husbands Bday. I am always on the look out for good restaurants but finding one that has quality food and bourbon is a difficult find especially when your husband is as in to bourbon as mine! I heard about Niche from a friend and at first was a bit skeptical they would have all the bourbon they listed on the website/menu but let me say they did NOT disappoint. We loved everything about this place. The food, the people, the atmosphere, and the cocktails/bourbon. They have an extensive list that will satisfy even the most sophisticated critic (my husband). The owner was behind the bar serving drinks and was super nice and knowledgeable. The food was ridiculously good!! The music was also on point! The only thing we didn’t get was the cotton candy for my hubbys Bday which I was a little disappointed about! I told them it was his Bday and was told that was the “Bday” dessert but it never came! Oh well. We had a blast. Can’t wait to go back and maybe next time they will hook me up with that cotton candy😉

We had a very nice dinner at Niche on a Saturday night. They were completely booked and unfortunately, we had a table right by the door to the kitchen. Some of the tables for 2 are very close to each other, so you can hear the conversation from the people next to you.
The food was great. The lamb was cooked very nicely. The swordfish was delicious. The pot de creme for dessert was very good as well.

Although limited menu options, the charm and ambiance is one of the best in the area. Food and service are always exceptional.

This was an amazing experience I would advise everyone who even lives remotely close to the restaurant to check it out. From the service to food, everything was what you would out of restaurant when you and your significant other want a special night out.

Our first time at Niche and we will definitely return. We were not disappointed in any aspect of our dinner. Wonderful, creative menu -- a great, masterful chef; terrific service; and nice ambiance. The best restaurant in all respects that we have been to in a long time.

Lovely ambiance. The service was knowledgeable with an extensive drink list. The beef tartar app was amazing! The soup was delicious and trout and beef entrees were full of amazing flavors. GET THE BRUSSLE SPROUTS! Will be back and recommend this for date night or special occasion.
