"We had vegans in our party, and we were able to order plenty of food. All of the food was great. Our server was patient, and attentive. I will be back soon!"

"We had the pleasure of meeting Nia, who was every bit as charming as her restaurant. Her menu includes nearly all Mediterranean favorites, some with new flavorful twists (ie: the gnocchi, which I'm still dreaming about). The sangria was delicious, and would strongly recommend the bread pudding (the best I've had) for dessert. Many vegetarian options too. I will certainly be back."

"We went for restaurant week and we enjoyed trying trying the different courses. Everything was very good but nothing stood out as fantastic. We had a nice time and it was a good date night. I would go again but at the same time I'm not dying to go back."

"We went for Chicago Restaurant Week. It was an eight course meal that gave us the opportunity to try a lot of different things on the menu. The bacon-wrapped dates, saganaki, pork tenderloins and bread pudding were some of the best I've had. The food came out quickly. The service was fine."

"Decided to go to Nia for restaurant week and it did not disappoint! The value was amazing for all the dishes. Our server was great and was on top of clearing out table and bringing the new dishes out. I will definitely return! Their bread pudding was amazing and I would return for that alone!"

"My husband and I went here during Restaurant Week, so we only tried their 8 course prix fixe meal. The bacon wrapped dates were amazing! Definitely a must have. The gnocchi and lamb meatballs were just delicious. I would also recommend their chocolate dessert. The rest of the courses (salad, potatoes, hummus, ceviche) were just okay. The atmosphere was nice, but I don't feel the need to go back again for a full meal. But maybe just for some bacon wrapped dates....
Pros: lots of options shared in a family-style way means lot of trying wonderful things
Cons: not all of the courses were amazing

"The staff was all GREAT! We got seated as soon as we arrived and had drinks waiting for another friend. Food was good but not exceptional. Very loud (in a good energetic way) place. Would go back but lots of other places will be hit first!"

"This is my favorite spot in Chicago. The food is phenomenal, the prices are very reasonable, and the ambiance is relaxing. My boyfriend and I are always here, and not once has it disappointed us. Great wine, scotch, and drink selection. You have to try the sangria!"

"We had attempted to go to another restaurant first during Restaurant Week, but that restaurant was severely underprepared and had run out of food. It was a blessing in disguise because the experience we had at Nia's exceeded everyone's expectations and we wholeheartedly believe that it trumped any experience we would have had at the first restaurant. We opted for the 10 course tasting menu and three of us opted for the wine pairings. The portions were perfect for adventurous eaters. Everything was cooked perfectly."

"Made a reservation here because our first choice was fully booked for the night. The 4 of us opted for the $33/person prix-fixe menu of 8 tapas (including dessert) served family style. Given the caliber of other restaurants on this section of Randolph st., Nia is definitely not in the same league. The food was just ok, not very exciting. Service was a little too attentive, with the host checking in on us almost after every tapas. Sure it's better than lackluster service but it can get a little disruptive when trying to carry on a conversation with dining companions. We ordered beet salad, saganaki (no flames at the table), pork medallions, sauteed mushrooms, gnocchi, ceviche, hummus and tiramisu. The ceviche was the standout, followed closely by the pillowy gnocchi and mushrooms with a kick. The pork medallions & hummus were forgettable. It's a good backup plan when your other choices have a 3 hour wait but I wouldn't make a special trip for this."

"From the minute we walked in we knew the night was going to be great. Gaga, our hostess/server was friendly and accommodating starting with our first cocktail.
The tasting menu was versatile and very fresh and tasty. We can not say enough great things about our service and the food. Accommodating 6 adults (2 vegans), and a 2 & 7 yr old is next to impossible. Yet, Gaga and her team did the impossible. We can't wait to go back!! Thank you!

"Enjoyed the food here the first time I dined, so went again on a first date. Prix Fixe was a good deal, and portions were same as I remember them from my first time. It was $33/person for an 8-course dinner. We were starting to get full by the 4th or 5th course, and took some home in the end. Went Sunday evening, great time for getting to know someone new because it wasn't packed and quiet enough to have conversation. Since the kitchen wasn't heavily taxed, the server spaced our plates generously while we started getting full so we could enjoy them better."

"We went there for a NYE dinner. Our first impression of this restaurant was not particularly great. The interior had a cheap touch as if nobody really paid attention to it. The food was okay, nothing special. For that reason I would say the food was overpriced in relation to the quality. The food was served out of order and 2 courses at once while there were also longer wait periods between courses. The surprise at the end was that the restaurant added 20% automatic tip for a party of 2. When we asked the waiter, he just bluntly said, that is what they were doing for NYE. I left the restaurant with a considered opinion of never returning again."
