Another enjoyable dinner, great execution and service.
The Niche crew does a wonderful job with the curated beer, wine and whiskey list and the perfectly paired food. Exceptional takes on classic American cuisine with a few surprises. Perfect for a night out or a special occasion. It's clear why Niche is consistently rated one of the best in the Western suburbs, on par or better than many of the highly rated restaurants in the city. After you eat, be sure to hang out at the bar and taste world class wine, beer and whiskey.
The food and service are top notch. Our server could not have been any better.
Changed over the year. High end pricing. Tables were's even covered with linen. More tbales packed in so its lost its ambience.
Service, food, and drinks are all top notch! It's a high-end restaurant without the high-end pretentiousness. Definitely not someplace I'd go for dinner regularly, just because it's a bit pricey, but definitely an amazing special occasion place. The bar area is great to just pop in for some apps and cocktails, too. Great whiskey selection and wine list. I'm never disappointed when I go here!
Really enjoyed our waitress. Very engaging
We always have a great experience at Niche, and our server, Jeffery, is a delight! He is very knowledgeable and helpful when ordering. Love it!
Wonderful experience, fantastic service, excellent food presented very well. Highly recommended. Impressive bourbon/whiskey selection
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
Food and service were both excellent. Highly recommend. This is the kind of restaurant where every dish on the menu is great.
Niche always hits the mark - flawless!
The cocktails are impecable, food incredilbe, and the service outstanding.
I just love the ambiance here! Service is top notch and flavor combinations are very interesting. I would recommend this restaurant!
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.
Food and service consistently excellent - always have a great meal and evening
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.
Always good food, expensive.
Drink menu is overkill.
Food menu is perfect.
Very comfortable dining.
I was disappointed on that you couldn't make my wife a martini, our food was cool not hot. We ordered an appetizer and it didn't come. I didn't get an extra cup of coffee. Also not much to choose from for dinner. The food tasted great but cold.
The food was quite good, fresh tasting and definitely interesting, different from the average menu. The staff were friendly and attentive.
However, it was very noisy, and the serving sizes were extremely small, especially considering the high price.
I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and it was perfect! He loves whiskey, which is why I chose this place. Being out of town, I really don't know where people eat around here! Highly recommend this place. The waiter was nice enough to bring us a complimentary cotton candy dessert even though we said we had cake at home afterwards :) Great experience and will definitely be back! The brussel sprouts & fried chicken were by far our favorite menu items!
Great meal. Never felt rushed. Wonderful service. Jeffrey, our server, brought all four of us a glass of champagne when he learned we were celebrating two birthdays. Still remains our special occasion restaurant.
This is a very nice set up right off of 3rd St in downtown Geneva. The atmosphere is upscale and the mood is quiet and sophisticated. Expect a very long break between courses to take it all in. The food was quite good, although not plentiful/filling. While it was indeed delicious, we found ourselves wandering around looking for a more wallet friendly way to treat ourselves afterwards.
Always on point. Service is still the best in the area and you cannot beat the menu selections. Add in all the bar options with wine, beer, and brown liquor and you simply cannot beat Niche.
Western suburbs best spot for great food and drink! Knowledgeable and friendly staff! Best beer and whiskey selection on the planet..
Food was beyond fabulouse! We will be back!!
Yes! A restaurant focused on excellent, imaginative food, but not douchy or pretentious. Excellent service, too!
Delicious and creative food options. Consistently good. Comfortable surroundings. I love that you can choose between small plates or entrees.
One of a kind. Excellent service, menu, presentation in a very inviting atmosphere.
Excellent menu from fun to exotic. From cotton candy for dessert to fois gras for an appetizer. Our waiter was outstanding. He answered all our questions and made great recommendations. We can't wait to go back.
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!!
Family visiting from California, they absolutely loved the food and service, and yes they are foodies.
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!)
Excellent meal and everything was prepared perfectly. The staff is very knowledgeable of the cuisine. Nice and quiet.
Favorite go to spot in all the western suburbs! What can I say Vinny, Steve, Tom and Brant killed it once again!
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.
