Loved this place. We did the tasting menu with a nice bottle of Albariño. Food was excellent and service was pretty good. We sat at the high top near the window and that added some good people watching as well. We will definitely go back

I've been going to Nia Restaurant for a couple years now. I've never had a bad experience with the food, staff or patrons. It's nice having a restaurant on Randolph that is independently owned and operated. The Chef/Owner, Nia, is always there and so knowledgeable about not only her cuisine, but a multitude of culinary disciplines. I've learned over the... More

Really terrific food, AMAZING SERVICE (ask for Marty), and those personal touches that takes things from good, to great. I'm visiting from out of town, and have been here twice this week. I've always been treated like a prince, and the food is always worth it. If you've never had pan-seared gnocchi, go. Now. Both of the brochettes are delicious,... More

There are so many trendy restaurants in this area you would be remiss to miss this one. We had the 8 course fixed menu. The portions were perfect for two. Great taste and service by "Lady Gaga" and her wonderful accent. Don't be afraid of the lack of crowds. Looking forward to going back.

Loved the bacon wrapped dates. Gnocchi was unique and tasty. The service was attentive. Overall a great place for a group of 12 to enjoy an 8 course family style meal. Finished with a Carmel bread pudding!

It's a small restaurant that doesn't seem too busy most days but if you are looking for a nice meal with friends in downtown/West Loop area, this is a great place! For an 8 course tapas style meal, it'll cost you about $35/person but it's a fun environment with good flavors. Loved the lamb meatball! Would highly recommend that. The... More

Come with an appetite! Really awesome place to take a large group. The atmosphere is very low key and relaxing. Each plate was delicious and flavorful. I would definitely recommend the hummus and the bacon wrapped dates and the bread pudding. It's in a fun location nearby many other trendy restaurants and coffee shops. Would totally return!

I live across the street for 11 years and have watched tens of restaurants move in and out and the hood get trendier and trendier. This place is right next to Girl and the Goat and that is where most people head. I have eaten here about 5 times and have never had a bad anything. The food is really... More

That is a tiny restaurant that is made for Mediterranean food lovers. The menu is a tapas-style menu. You can choose small tasty dishes that evoke Southern Europe meals. Meals are genuine and always unexpected. The squids are just perfect. The service is very good and the music is not too loud. Ideal if you want to find a kids-friendly... More
