About Niche Restaurant
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.

Niche Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food was outstanding. My husband had the rack of lamb and I had the beef tenderloin. Everything was delicious. The setting is warm and friendly. The Niche signature after dinner drink was was yummy. It was an enjoyable evening and I look forward to a second visit.
Very thing you want in a restaurant. Exceptional food, excellent service and a beautiful atmosphere. Terrific wine list, but in this restaurant bourbon is king. Over 100 different brands to choose from. Have one of their signature manhattans, old fashions or a boulevardier, then a bottle of wine with dinner. Try the dessert trio. You won't be disappointed with Niche.
Way over priced, we had a $100.00 Gift Certificate and our bill was was still $320 before tip with the Gift Certificate 4 p4opl4, No bread/dinner rolls, when we asked for it they brought out some sort of fried chip almost like a Tortilla chip
This is the type of restaurant to come to repeatedly because everything they serve is wonderful. You want to try every entrée. The attention to detail is very evident in every dish they serve and in the way the servers take care of you. It's more of a special occasion place because the prices are a little high. It's worth it though!
I have always heard about Niche but never went. I had a gift card from a client and went for my wife's birthday. The table was ready for our reservation time and the staff sat us and one of the better tables. The waitress gave a complimentary glass of champagne for my wife's birthday. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Dinner was outstanding and the cocktails were to die for. I highly recommend the house old fashioned. Entrees were great as well as the soup and desserts. I will be back. Great evening and dinner. Thank you Niche.
Niche never disappoints! Our server, Jeffery, was outstanding this time, providing helpful and immediate attention when needed, but not overbearing. The food is excellent and creative, incorporating local ingredients where possible. It is a bit louder since they redecorated, eliminating the use of table cloths and rearranging seating where diners are sometimes within what seems to be inches of other diners at another table.
First visit...Celebrated our 44th anniv....Steve our server started off with complimentary champaigne...nice menu...a little pricey but worth it...overall everything, drinks,food,and exceptional service...made for a most enjoyable experience...will definetly go back and recommend
The waiter Tommy made you feel that you were the only guest in the room. His knowledge of the menu and his recommendations were fantastic. The food was exceptional in the way it was presented and the various uses of flavors in the dishes. For dessert I would highly recommend the "whiskey cake" - Niche is a great place for a good meal
Had an amazing time at Niche were their for our Anniversary Jeffrey was the best waiter just loved him, he made our dinner really special, when we arrived he brought us glasses of champagne for us to toast and after was so attentive can't wait to go back, food was great also corn chowder was to die for.❤️
Great what you might call nouvelle american food with attention to presentation. Second time here. Arrived on a Tuesday for an early (6pm) reservation. We were seated right away. We had lamb and scallops entrees. Both were great. Wine, beer and the special Manhattan were enjoyed too. Dessert was nice but not special. Server was attentive and timely, but likely inexperienced. She read the specials from a cheat sheet and served drinks on the left. I’m probably just nit picking on that, because we enjoyed the meal immensely. Definitely will be back again. Thanks, Niche for a nice evening.
Not worth the price! I don't mind paying for fine dining, but when you get a bill for almost $300 you expect to eat great. Tough NY strip steak, flavorless chicken, a sausauge plate that had there pickled vegetables that didn't really pair well with the meat...Just not a great experience. They had a great beer selection. But they really need to tell the kitchen that this is a nice restaurant, that seasoning is OK and that they're not cooking for a senior living facility. At least put some salt on the food.
Date night with my wife. Menu was recently updated, with another great selection. Amish chicken was perfectly done with great mix of flavors. The fettuccini was also great. Wide drink and wine menu. This restaurant is always a treat for foodies. Whiskey cake was a great dessert.
