Transit: The Metra train station in Geneva is located 5 blocks South of Niche on Third street. This is one of the more relaxing ways to travel to Geneva from Chicago, and a short walk away from the best dining Geneva has to offer.

Dined at Niche for the second time and have similar thoughts from our first visit there. The service is excellent with the exception of wait time for drinks - sometimes 20-30 minutes, even when they are slow. The food is really very good but comes at a hefty price, and portions are quite small. The servers are polished and attentive, and the decor inside nice - though a bit pretentious. Very small menu of specialty entrees and appetizers - be prepared to spend at least $50/per person. Wine list is extensive but horrendously overpriced. Nevertheless, a popular place amongst the locals who can afford it so reservations are recommended.

Love the atmosphere and the food and service has always been super. Very romantic, quiet place for a couples dinner. Great location in Geneva.

Since the first couple of visits, some changes have been made; and our recent meal was excellent. The dishes showed imagination, creativity, originality and fine taste! The service was impeccable---attentive, patient, helpful. Therefore, I have raised my rating to 5 stars!
The room is refined, soberly and tastefully furnished, and sound levels are low.

This restaurant tries hard to be a serious gourmet establishment and falls short. The sauces overpower the ingredients and it's a bit too pretentious. They offer gin and tonics with "homemade tonic" and when I asked the waiter how they make their own tonic he said, "We use a sodastream" I have one of those at home and you basically add flavor to carbonated water. I mean, really....
