We have never had a bad experience at Niche. We have gone for date night and we have taken our 9 year old, she loves the cheese platter! My favorite thing is the steam buns, so so good. And the drink selection is very impressive. Clean, attractive, friendly staff, nice down town location.

Doesn't the title of my review say it all? This place is awesome the food, wine list, cocktail menu, fresh seasonal food and the dessert. The service is always great, friendly and not over the top like you are getting interrupted by the servers. The cotton candy dessert is HUGE and delicious as is every other item on the small...

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.
