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.

Yes! A restaurant focused on excellent, imaginative food, but not douchy or pretentious. Excellent service, too!

A great downtown Geneva restaurant with an excellent bar and always top notch food. A little pricey but never disappoints with quality, taste and ambiance. Don’t stay away because of price...stop by for a drink at the bar and order some “small bites”. Less expense and very good food there too. Drinks...especially bourbon-based, are top shelf!!

Everything was outstanding! I've eaten at some fine restaurants around the world, most recently, in Australia and must say that the service, ambiance, lighting, candles, coziness, service, and food were top shelf! The variety of food, fresh ingredients and presentation stand up against the best. Service was very welcoming and non-pretentious... LOVE IT! We'll be back VERY SOON... Cheers! (P.S. GREAT Martini's and blue cheese olives!)

The food and service were both outstanding. Every course was exciting and unique, and although pricey- honestly worth it. The experience and ambiance alone were worth the cost. The dessert courses are different and fun, and sooo delicious. I had a great time, and will definitely be returning.
