Quiet spot in busy restaurant zone

We stopped here for dinner after arriving in Chicago for work. I had the beet salad and some garlic shrimp. Both were very tasty. My dinner companion felt the portions were too small, but it is tapas, and I think he was looking for a regular size portion. I thought it was just right.

Not a nice pace. The food is not tasty and the portions are "micro". Too expensive for what you get. The service is good.

I picked this restaurant because they had an early dinner discount - 8 courses for $28. The food was INCREDIBLE! I would have paid at least double- it was that good. From the first bite to the last everything was perfect. The service was incredible. We are seriously considering eating here every night that we are in Chicago.

My wife and I decided to eat at nia's and to say it was amazing is an understatement. From the first bite to the last it was by far the best meal I have ever had in my life. We shared the eight course dinner and the salad with the goat cheese was wonderful. That goat cheese is so creamy... More

My wife and I enjoyed the 10 course prefix meal. Our server helped us with the choices as we had not dined there before. After 5 plates we easily could have moved on to desert. Sadly we were not smart enough to stop at five. We cannot wait to return and try the regular small plate menu.

It was fun sitting at the bar, chatting with the bartender. She made very good drink recommendations as well as food. We shared only two items, but what we had was good (ceviche, beef brochette).

The food is awesome. My friend and I split the 8 course meal, and it was plenty for the both of us with leftovers.

The food was good, but not memorable. The size of the tapas was larger than I have had at other restaurants. Service was average. Not my favorite spot or type o food

I've been here before on a date with my BF, and the atmosphere was lovely and the food great. We decided to come back with a larger group of friends - 8 in total - and I was surprised that we were forced to use the $33/pp prix fix menu because of the size of our group. This was disappointing... More
