“MY FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I've used Niche many times for business and personal related dinners over the past few years. . I have never been disappointed and more importantly neither have my guests. It is very exciting to have a restaurant of this caliber in St. Louis. In my opinion and that of a recent Wall Street Journal article, Niche has some of the most innovative culinary delights nationally, specifically their lobster dish.

“Great food followed by great cocktails next door”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We ate here during a short trip to St Louis. We're pretty sure that we struck gold with this place. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. The restaurant itself is very smart and has a great cocktail bar next door which seemed to be the place to be. If we went back to St Louis, this would be my first choice of places to go!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Small restaurant and can be tough to get a reservation. We finally got in and cannot believe we have missed it for so many years. We were delighted with the Chef's tasting menu and wine pairings. Everything was cooked to perfection, fantastic sauces, excellent service, and we even were allowed to substitue the dessert so we could taste 2 different desserts. We have found our new occasions restaurant.

“Worth the effort to find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

If you're not from St Louis (and I suspect even if you are), Niche is a little off the beaten path but well worth the effort to find. It's in a nice old neighborhood near downtown, with brick townhouses and tree-lined streets. We had a wonderful meal, with very friendly service. The menu is innovative and the cooking is top notch with lots of different internaitonal and american influences. Definitely the best meal we've had in St Louis
