My husband and I went to Niche on Friday night. We loved every bite, every sip. It was perfection. I had the carrot soup special, which was layered and nuanced with flavor but not overpowered by the carrots. We shared the steam buns (there were four), which were delicious as well and the portion was just right for a share... More

I took my wife to celebrate her birthday. We really enjoyed the drinks, food and service. Everything was very good. Our server asked what we were celebrating. When we told him it was my wife's birthday he disappeared then came back with a champagne toast for us to help celebrate.

My wife took me to NIche last year for my birthday. While the service was very good, the food did not warrant the high prices. Everything was good, but not outstanding. I'd rather spend my high end dining dollar in Chicago.

Have enjoyed Niche a number of times on all sorts of occasions and our high expectations have never been disappointed. Christmas eve dinner last night with family found both the front and back of the house at the top of their games, from the beginning with a complex roasted chestnut soup, to a winter salad with duck confit, and on...

We have never had a bad experience at Niche. We have gone for date night and we have taken our 9 year old, she loves the cheese platter! My favorite thing is the steam buns, so so good. And the drink selection is very impressive. Clean, attractive, friendly staff, nice down town location.

Doesn't the title of my review say it all? This place is awesome the food, wine list, cocktail menu, fresh seasonal food and the dessert. The service is always great, friendly and not over the top like you are getting interrupted by the servers. The cotton candy dessert is HUGE and delicious as is every other item on the small...

Service was a lot slower on our second visit. Took about 5 minutes for a server to acknowledge us. It took a long time to get drinks, the bar was obviously understaffed. Brie cheese curds se a must! Shrimp salad was yummy!

I used to come here, especially for special occasions, but the recent remodel seems to attract a questionable clientele.The bar was full of sleazy looking bikers, wife beater shirts and all - there is obviously no ideas of a dress code, but that wouldn't have bothered me as much as the food. While our server was doing his absolute best,... More
