“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

The problem was not the okay food or the great service... the problem was the atmosphere. Loud blaring TV (am I in a sports bar?) but a lunch that cost $50 (am I in a restaurant?) for two. I could not hear the person sitting across from me speak because of the TV. The girl behind the bar was rude, but our server was the BEST ever!

“A welcome change from the burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013 via mobile

great service and healthy food . We had tree types of vegetables which accompanied the dish. The fish was grilled not fried . And everything tasted delicious. It was rather spicy but that is how i like my food. I would definitely come back

“New Menu! Bad decision!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

We were "sorta" regulars here. We could always depend on a wide variety of good food. Dropped in last night to find a totally new menu. I was looking forward to a soup and my wife was looking forward to a poboy or sandwich. None were found on the menu. We left and ate at nearby Siegen Lane spot with a more accommodating menu.

The "new" menu was very disappointing. The waiter's explanation was that the previous menu wasn't working, so management was trying a different approach. It appears that an "upscale" approach is being attempted, but the new menu is very limited and somewhat pricey at night.

In my opinion, Niche has ruined a good thing.

“What happened to the menu??”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

My husband and I visited our "spot" and were sorely disappointed that there had been a drastic downgrade to the menu. Where were the fried pickles?? My husband proposed over fried pickles! !!! All of the favorites we've enjoyed are gone. So sad.
