We celebrated my wife's birthday with a dinner at Niche. What a remarkable place. The atmosphere is inviting, the food is fantastic and the service excellent. There were three of us at the dinner and we ordered the four course. The first course all orders were the same: Spaghetti Squash, Baetje Farms feta, pepitas, oregano. This was a first for... More

We dined at Niche to celebrate my husband's birthday. Neither of us had been there previously, so we didn't know what to expect. We were deliciously surprised. The menu is set up to have 12 dishes, essentially 3 options for each of four courses. Each dish can be ordered a la carte, or for a prix fixe, you can choose... More

Had the Chef's tasting menu with wine pairings at the "Chef's Table": a counter in front of the open kitchen. Courses included those listed on the website as of today, but with a few other small but nice items: roasted hen-of-the-woods mushroom with chorizo butter, and a small raw milk cheese course with a camembert produced by one of the...

I had read a little bit about chef Gerard Craft. He used to live in Salt Lake City and now owns and operates four restaurants in St. Louis. He is a four-time James Beard Foundation finalist for Best Chef. Midwest and Food and Wine named him Best New Chef in 2008. He was very gracious and came to my table... More

We are regulars at this restaurant and just enjoyed the tasting menu with paired wines again last night. Be ready to experience unusual but delicious combinations of tastes, textures and temperatures. One of the best restaurants in Saint Louis.

This place clearly wants to be reach a high level of fine dining. It tries, but it's not there yet. The restaurant and service are rather casual, which is good. The tasting menu had two meat courses but didnot include a fish course. The taste of the dishes were fine, but not stellar. Nothing was very memorable.

It was a very special occasion since our daughter will only receive one masters degree, so we went to Niche to celebrate and ate like masters! From the warm welcome to the warmer Dia bread, we ate over 9 courses and never felt stuffed. Each course was well timed and proved to be an masterful concoction and mix of flavors,... More

This was a wonderful night. We went to celebrate a special occasion and the staff was so friendly and warm. The food was perfect and everything was paired so beautifully. The open kitchen is nice and inviting, and I love all the cookbooks everywhere.

Excellent and attentive service, with a charming server who had a big smile and a warm demeanor; menu is "creative" which means unusual combinations, some successful, some definitely not. Open kitchen, kitchen staff deliver the plates; nice presentation. Good, not great wine list could use some improvement. Some items were perfect, some left a lot to be desired. They are... More

Loved this restaurant. Unique experience. Every item on the menu is an invention. I was in a party of three. We shared 2 full 5 course meals and the waiter recommended a couple individual add on items. It was plenty...definitely a place to have small tastes of lots of dishes as everything deserves a full discussion of the flavors, textures... More
