Very interesting concepts of food and amazing prime rib

This meal was amazing, one of the best I've had in St. Louis. The atmosphere was not pretentious at all, which is important to me. Also, I left here satisfied but not stuffed. The food itself is very tasty. We got 10 (11?) course tasting menu, and the food was delicious. The "egg" course was... read more

I know the restaurant and its famed chef prepare very fine food here - but the style and whatever it is they are reaching for here is lost on me. I've had 3 very good meals here but, on every occasion, left a bit hungry and a much lighter wallet.

Niche as a dining experience is difficult to describe. Even while you are there, there is an ever-present feeling of not understanding what is being described, being seen, or the flavors that are coming together. Simply amazing! Definitely not "slipping out for a bite to eat," but rather a moment where space and time are momentarily reshaped by the textures... More

Go and do the tasting menu. Each course is a an exercise in perfection. So many tastes and interesting foods. Or server Jordan was also great. This is a must if you are a foodie hitting St Louis.

First the good. The bartender is superb. Everyone at our table had a different drink and each one of us absolutely loved their cocktail. Inventive and beautifully made. Their wine list is also nice. The $70 prix fixe menu is priced well but service is a bit too fast for enjoyment of every dish. Best thing on the menu? Cheese... More

The reviews were great the food (what there was of it) was very tasteful. I felt more like I was at a tapas restaurant with small plates to try. I had a lamb dish that was $32.00 and for that I got four small pieces of lamb each about the size of a die at a gaming table. I will... More

I eat and travel extensively for business and this is one of the best restaurants in America. It is amazing and would be a Michelin 3 star if they rates US restaurants. Simply wonderful food that is underpriced and of great value to the wallet and senses. Fly from anywhere to eat here. No review can do it justice.

On the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit I watched the movie 'Chef' and was very inspired by it. As it happened, I was invited to join some colleagues for dinner at Niche and upon watching the Chef at Niche do his thing I couldn't help thinking: good for you!

Most nights Niche is for special occasions, but on Mondays there is more rustic comfort food. The menus are posted a few days in advance and there is usually two main courses. They are always good and more simple than normal nights at Niche.

World class food served by world class servers. I cannot say enough about the meal. Each course was excellent. Inventive, out of this world flavor combinations! Our server, Todd, could not have made it any more pleasant. I love what Gerard is trying to do here...making it a truly Missouri restaurant by using ingredients from the area. When anyone comes...
