Food was fine, but not a fan of the limited menu on Monday nights.
The food was very good, small portions but too expensive for what we received. Great service and staff was very friendly and accommodating . Great place for a special occasion however it was my husbands birthday and we usually receive a complimentary dessert when we have gone to other restaurants .
Wonderful value and refinement of entrees for Sunday/Monday night dinners.
We also love to come here for special occasions; birthdays, New Years Eve, etc.
Thanks for the quality!
ps..we also frequent TASTE and BRASSERIE.
Went for one of their Sunday night suppers and couldn't have been more pleased with the experience.
My first time back to Niche after the move from Sidney St. Nothing less than greatness from the recent James Beard Award-winning chef. We all indulged in the 10-course tasting menu and every course was excellent! My favorite was the roasted pork with grits and ice cream! A very odd combination, but suprisingly delicious! The service was excellent as well. I'm disappointed I am unable to remember our server's name, but she was impeccable. So very friendly and accommodating, and eager to describe the details of every course.
Highly recommend this restaurant in STL! Easily in the top 3 best in the city, if not #1, in my opinion.
The food was outstanding. Each bite was a new exploration in the complexity of the overall flavors.
Well served. Well explained and adapted for food allergies. A delight to eat.
The only issue was the cost - over $400 for a party of four. So maybe once a year??!!!
The Sunday Suppers at Niche are really lovely. The menu is limited but so are the prices -- and they call you in advance to make sure you know what to expect. Every dish is artfully prepared to excite all your tastebuds. And the ambiance is warm and intimate -- like a Sunday supper with family & friends. We had a lovely evening.
Niche is an amazing place to dine. My husband and I each had the four course dinner and also an appetizer. It was a little over $200 for the two of us but luckily we had a gift certificate.
I think my husband's dishes were slightly better than mine - he had a beautiful soup with a merengue, rib-eye steak, and decadent pork belly. I liked my trout and asparagus, too, though. The best thing about Niche is how the chefs surprise you by mixing textures and tastes in an unexpected way. The food is a work of art there.
Truly an exceptional experience from the start. I had the nine-course tasting menu, and each course was a treat. Service was exceptional. The facility will soon be undergoing a makeover, but the ambiance isn't what you're there for anyway. I live in Atlanta, but I would make a trip to St. Louis *just* to eat here. It's seriously that good.
Loved the food. Did the 4 courses. Portions were small but overall very filling and tasted out of this world. Restaurant is loud as it shares its space with another restaurant. Overall it is worth the money and a great experience!
I was surprised. Read the Menu on line and was not impressed (sparse explanation of dishes). Plus I dined at Niche several years ago at its old location and thought it was a good dining establishment, but not exceptional. Shared these thoughts with Jennifer our server. Jennifer immediately gave us a complete and detailed explanation of the menu - she definitely got our attention. Jennifer also gave us excellent suggestions for wine pairings. Now for the food. We did the 8 course menu. The sizes were just right so that we didn't feel bloated. The "Smoked Mushroom Tea" prepared the pallet for what was to come. The "Egg" was to die for - custard and faux caviar all encased in a 1/2 egg shell. A world class appetizer. The rest of the tasting menu continued to tantalize the pallet. Hats off to the Chef, the Kitchen and Jennifer for making this a memorable dinning experience. Where do I rate Niche? I put it at joint number 1 in St Louis. For classic continental dining I go with "Tony's". For exciting and creative food along the lines of Alinea in Chicago, Niche is a must do.
Our first time at Niche for the special Sunday/Monday night three course dinner....
Just really amazing everything from ambience to the food itself. Service great! Menu great!
Atmosphere Great!! Definitely going back again!
Niche was really fantastic. It was everything I had hoped for. The food was STELLAR, the service was fantastic, and the space is pretty great. Having heard about Niche for years, I finally made it down there, and it did not disappoint. Unlike a couple of other high-end restaurants in St. Louis, I would not hesitate dining at Niche again.
Very limited selections on Sunday and Monday; pick another day. The wine pairings for each course were exceptional.
No much else to say. Start to finish, it was perfect. Sara welcomed us like family, cocktails at the bar were delicious, Jordan was our server; he was outstanding. If we lived in Missouri, we would be there A LOT! Put this gem on your "not to miss" list. You will not be disappointed.
