This was our first visit to Niche is quite some time. While the food options showed great variety and imagination, the atmosphere was very relaxed and unpretentious. We will return soon.
This was our 2nd time to this establishment. Both for special occasions and each time we were treated like we were the only ones in the crowded restaurant. Their food is what I imagine it would be like on one of those cooking shows. We will definitely be back again.
We haven’t been to Niche in a while, so it was really nice catching a reservation on Friday morning for a Friday night dinner… We were delighted to see most of the old gang still working together and had a great dining experience with Tommy as our waiter. The food and the service were superior. You definitely can’t ever go wrong with this as your restaurant choice!
You can never go wrong here. Food is outstanding. One of the best burgers you'll find and the pork shank is amazing. Bourbon selection is awesome.
The fried chicken was phenomenal. Will be returning!
Extensive craft beer menu and tasty small plates! Excellent service too!
Great Easter brunch. Food was delicious!
The food is AMAZING but the service is what makes this place a true gem! Jeffrey is something special. He is well versed on the menu and doesn’t hurry you through your meal. The bone marrow was unctuous. Don’t leave without tasting the signature Niche coffee—-to die for!!! We will come back here again, without a doubt.
Niche is one of our favorite restaurants. The food and service is always consistently good. The carrot soup and salmon dish were fabulous. We always like the steam buns for an appetizer. The wine list is very good, as well. They also have a great beer list too.
Music not quite appropriate for the setting and too loud.
Very good food that is well-prepared. The entree menu isn't particularly enticing so we dined on small plates, soup and salad. Everything was quite enjoyable and the service was particularly good. Jeffrey was there when needed and very helpful.
Niche is one of my wife and my favorite restaurants to dine at. Food is always top notch and creative. Drinks, beer, and liquor selection is stellar as well.
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.
