NIQUE is not just a restaurant.
IT'S A FAMILY OF YOUNG, PASSIONATE INDIVIDUALS EAGER TO PROVIDE OUR CUSTOMERS WITH A DYNAMIC AND WELCOMING EXPERIENCE.
We think our approach to food and drink is inherently Canadian.

Not because we serve beavertail poutine with maple syrup gravy (we don't serve this), but because our menu is a cultural mosaic.

This nod to Canadian culture allows us to be both approachable and adventurous.

We believe that by giving people delicious food in a comfortable environment, we can foster a strong community and a sense of home that will surprise and delight you.

We went for buck a shuck Mondays for such a great value, the quality of the food was fantastic. A little slow to get our food as they only had one person shucking.

Also tried sushi nachos small size was very tasty but small serving size

I very much enjoyed the 'buck a shuck' oyster deal that they have on Mondays, we did not try any other food this time but I will most likely be back to enjoy another one of their appetizers or share plates.

Their drink menu was very extensive and if you like a good local craft beer or drink this is the place to go!

Excellent dinner and service. This was our 3rd time there in the last few months and the Host remembered us and our wine preferences and had a drink ready for us. The server was wonderful and the food was awesome. We will definitely go back and recommend it to all our friends.

Creative, delicious food. Sushi nachos are exceptional. We had a large party with multiple requests and service was excellent. A bit noisy with a nearby table doing singalong that night :) but that happens, and I would definitely go back.

I've been to Nique before and had a very good experience. However, this time it was very poor. We waited over an hour and a half to get our meals although the restaurant didn't seem overly busy at the time. The manager comp'd our appetizer, thankfully, but it was only 14 dollars off of our table's almost 300 dollar bill. And there were only four of us dining. I doubt I'll be dining there again.

The wine and cauliflower hummus were too die for! I ordered the seafood platter as a main and quite enjoyed the shrimp and oysters. I was dissatisfied with the lobster tail as it was served cold and lost it's flavor being served that way. My personal preference is warm in shell which I was expecting. The dish itself was presented beautifully but I likely won't order that again. Incredible staff who were kind and attentive. Overall lovely evening.

As always great food, great cocktails and drinks. Always love the sushi nachos (no roe please). The table had the fried chicken, Argentine steak, Nique burger, and Chef Boii RD. Amazing (though miss the awesome Brussels Sprouts that used to be on the menu!).

Our dinner at Nique was fantastic! I went with my husband ( who is pretty picky usually) and my sister from out of town. We had the sushi nachos and pork belly steam buns to start, which were delicious, and filling into themselves. We then went on to have the fried chicken, chef booii rd pasta and the pork. All were really good!
Service was attentive, and the manager also checked in to make sure we were taken care of.
Great place for a date night, or going out with foodies. Will be back!

I had been to Nique before within the first year of opening and had a great experience so I decided to return for a special occasion. This time I found the food preparation to not be not on par with previous visit. I had the Blue cheese crusted NY strip steak which ended up being a pile of brown blue coloured cheese on top. Also, the Caesar salad is grilled and came out like a warm wilted mess. For the $$$ I would not recommend.

Fantastic! Food was incredible. My husband had the boi RD and I had the fried chicken. Best fried chicken I have had, crisp on the outside, juicy on the inside. Had a dessert that was a peanut butter mousse with a chocolate coating, ice cream and caramel sauce it was delicious! It was quite busy but service was very good. We will definitely dine their again.

I ordered the sushi nachos. I cannot believe it was $20 for a plate of nachos that had barely any fish on it. There was only puffed rice (that looked like fried meal worms), sliced jalapenos and a mayo dressing with 8 or 9 very small cubes of fish. Totally not worth the money. My friend had the Cobb salad, which usually comes with hard boiled eggs - the eggs were soft boiled to the point of snotty whites. The server did ask if she wanted her eggs replaced but she was already turned off by the runny egg that she settled for the lettuce and few chicken pieces that was the remainder of her salad, again not worth the money. We were both very disappointed with our experience. Our waitress was the only good thing about our experience. It was our first time eating at Nique and we likely won't be back again.

Food and service, as always, were great. Drag Brunch Entertainment (second seating) was a huge disappointment. I have been to previous Drag brunches and was so entertained. I would not recommend this particular event again. I took friends based on my previous experience and was embarrassed that only 2 songs were "performed".

Hey Heather, Thanks for reaching out. We are so happy that you enjoyed our food and service, and of course, are grateful for your continued patronage. I'm sorry that the performance this past Drag Brunch was not what you were expecting. We are working closely with the our partners for the event to source talent for the next Drag Brunch that is more representative of both our expectations. I'd love to do something for you next time you come in. Please email me at nicolas@niquerestaurant.ca !

The shakshuka was incredible and the Pims pitcher was a perfect accompaniment- especially on Wimbledon final day 🎾 the potato wedges on the side were crisped and baked to perfection and the mushroom truffle toast was delicious. Nice patio too!

We went to have dinner with my in-laws and everything was fantastic.
We had the fried chicken and the “chef boi oh dee” and couldn’t have been happier.
Their sangria was one of the best I’ve had, although a little small. However a pitcher comes with a small side of sushi nachos which are a must have.

I had the hot fried bass, it tasted okay and had the perfect amount of heat, it came whole and was a pain to sift through all the bones to reveal an underwhelming amount of meat, it came with generic coleslaw and 2 slices of oil saturated toast but could expect to have had a better fish dish almost anywhere else for $28. A better description of the dishes on the menu is needed. Service was great though.
