We were headed to The Girl and The Goat, which ended up with an hour and a half wait. Nia is next door. There were few people there, but we were hungry. It's a tapas restaurant, but very pricey. The salads were good, the hummus was okay, the 4 asparagus for $10 was ridiculous. The service was nice but I really hate paying the prices for such little food.

We stopped in early on a Sunday evening and were warmly welcomed. The wait staff was attentive. They gave us a list of options to choose from and decided to do the eight course dinner. It was a bit pricey but you got a ton of different style foods with big enough portions to fill you up. We enjoyed our evening and would definitely head back again.

I recently planned an association dinner at Nia's and got great feedback from the group. They had this to say, "People loved Nia Med. Nia, herself, is lovely. The service was fantastic. The food excellent quality. Courses came out fast and at a perfect pace."

Thanks Nia!

The food and selection of tapas is fun. The ambiance is a bit loud to talk with friends, but overall the experience was very good.

On the spur of the moment, my wife and I got tickets for the opera on a Friday night. Sprinting out of work in the burbs, we headed down toward Randolph St. to find somewhere that looked tasty and didn't have an hour wait for a table. We were very pleasantly surprised by Nia. At 6:15, we got a table right away. The wine and beer lists were reasonable and well-apportioned. We had a well-rounded assortment of plates. The pumpkin gnocchi was delicious as well as the pork tenderloin with eggplant caponata. The service was outstanding-present without being imposing, helpful without being overbearing.
