Service was a lot slower on our second visit. Took about 5 minutes for a server to acknowledge us. It took a long time to get drinks, the bar was obviously understaffed. Brie cheese curds se a must! Shrimp salad was yummy!

I used to come here, especially for special occasions, but the recent remodel seems to attract a questionable clientele.The bar was full of sleazy looking bikers, wife beater shirts and all - there is obviously no ideas of a dress code, but that wouldn't have bothered me as much as the food. While our server was doing his absolute best,... More

I love this place, It's my favorite place to eat in Geneva. the food is amazing, and the service is over the top, but the #1 thing to have when you are there is one of their House Manhattans!

Niche is outstanding! Service is on point with tasty food to match! Extensive beer and wine menu. The menu frequently changes which we enjoy. Pricey but worth it! I had the monkfish.....it was amazing! Next time we will start with desert since we never have enough room for the delectable choices.

We came here to celebrate an important event i out life. I had come here before a few ties and always had good experiences. Not this time! My wife's burger bun was so burned that everything tasted like burned bread, No waiter could be seen. He did not even refill out water. Eventually I was able to talk to him... More

The restaurant serves very high end food and drinks. This is a special occasion place as the prices are not cheap. The staff are very very professional. Parking is ok but not great. The wine selection is very well developed.

The meals were fabulous. A bit on the pricey side. Quality was excellent. Service was spot on. Brian was our waiter - very knowledgeable and fun. Everything on the menu was first rate. Great drink menu. Dessert menu also had something for everyone.

We have gone to Niche for many years and like its current incarnation the best. Quiet and elegant with superb service, Niche offers interesting food and a variety of portions, from small plates to full entrees. My seared tuna was memorable!

Niche usually delivers high quality (at high prices). This trip, with a couple exceptions, again met our expectations of delicious food and expert service. The butternut squash salad was amazing. Perfectly roasted squash, meaty maitake mushroom, baby arugula, roasted onion, and a crunch mix of pumpkin and sunflower seeds in a cider dressing. My wife had the Fjord ocean trout.... More
