Great Family time

Went in for dinner with husband and four grown kids. We had a great time. Drinks were delicious, appetizers yummy and meal great. The Brussel sprouts are amazing. My daughter eats gluten free and they accommodated her.

Our first visit to Niche. It exceeded expectations. The setting is intimate and warm. The service, Jeffry was our waiter, was outstanding and the food excellent. We had the warm pretzels with bacon jam for an appetizer (so yummy). The butternut squash salad was the second and it so delicious. I chose the veal and my husband had a steak... More

I've lived in the area for five years and never got around to visit this restaurant, now I ask my self why? The restaurant has a nice, modern romantic ambiance; from the moment you walk in you are greeted with the biggest smiles, Our Server Aaron was simply amazing, very knowledgeable on the menu and his suggestions where spot on...

Niche was a very nice place for dinner. My group was 3 couples and the table set up was great. The service was fantastic and the prices were in line with other high end dining locations. The beer menu was top notch, they had just about everything. The food was great, my only complaint would be the menu was pretty... More

Niche has been on our date night rotation for a couple years. The prices are a bit higher than Fiora's down the street, but not out of line. We've never had a bad meal there - the quality of the food is outstanding! Last Friday I had soft pretzels with bacon onion jam and sweet potato soup with chili oil;... More

Always a nice evening, although a bit louder than usual. Good service and an active bar as well as full of diners. Was shocked that the bar had NO Canadian Blended whiskey. Unusual at a location that touts its massive bar lists. Good food, served well. Always a bit pricey but then again it has been that way since it... More

My husband and I finally tried this place after wanting to for about a year. We went in about 45 minutes before our reservation to have a drink at the bar and ended getting seated right when we walked much to our surprise. My husband ordered a rare beer that they just ran out of and extended their apologies and... More

Great food in smaller(what should be considered normal)portion size. Pretzel appetizer out of this world w/ nice cozy atmosphere. Felt prices were very reasonable for fine dining and the staff was very cordial. Had a great selection of specialty craft beer bottle and tap, large wine selection, and artisan liquor choices were a surprise.

We went for a Monday night "wine dinner" and were really impressed. Each of the four courses was well thought out, seasonal, and absolutely delicious. The first course of squid ink tortellini stuff with shrimp mousse was gorgeous--cut open your tortelli and the contrast of pink shrimp with black wrapper was elegant. However, the emphasis was on the tastes and... More
