Most of the staff appear to be friendly. Food is typical sports bar or pub food.Peaceful & enjoyable breakfasts. The downside are the high number of rodents (mice) that seem to be every where. Almost impossible to eat their without noticing a mouse dashing across the floor.Extremely unappetizing especially when you think of a mouse on a stick, sickening.

NICHE has a fantastic happy hour that starts at 4pm and runs all night for select alcohol and 4-6:30 half price munchie type food. It's a great spot in the summer with a large street patio. On warm days/evenings it is a great spot to go out and enjoy their patio. The biggest downfall here is the food. It is... More

I had lunch with a colleague and was super disappointed, not only with slow and inattentive service, but especially the food. The Caesar salad was $12.50 +$4.95 for adding chicken so $17.50 + tax + tip and the salad had 1 and I mean ONE crouton. The lettuce was yellow with the centre tough pieces that I throw away at...

Great Atmosphere/Ambiance, friendly staff, decent drinks price, great food. Tried their Burgers and Chicken Tender both were really good. Also, if you spend $20 or more and you keep your bill, you get free entrance to Pacifico (the Club in the same building)

While staying at Sheraton 4 Points we went there for breakfast twice. The food was alright but the first morning the two female wait staff were disinterested. They looked like they had been partying the night before and weren't really paying a lot of attention. We arrived at 9:00. Service was slow, coffee took a long time after a couple... More

I've had some pretty good meals here, but they were all take out lunch specials that didn't involve dealing with the service, which hasn't been very good the times I experienced it. The drinks are nice, and the couple times I had dinner, I wasn't overly impressed with the food or the service or the prices. The cocktails are very... More

I had a look at the mixed reviews of this place and didn't expect much, but it was cold outside and this place is reachable without stepping outside the hotel. Menu is simple fare, not much healthy, service is good though. I am glad a lights are a little dim, my guess is that it's past it's prime and a... More

We were downtown on a Sunday looking for a place for dinner and my aunt suggested Niche because she and her friends go there frequently for their happy hour specials. I don't know what it is like during happy hour, but our experience for dinner was pretty poor. When we arrived they had plenty of open tables, but told us... More

This is the restaurant that provides the in-room dining for the hotel to which it is attached. I have had many food experiences over the years with food from this restaurant and I have to say i am in awe of how they are even in business. Not one of my dining experiences has been stellar, mediocre at best -... More

We've dined at Niche approximately 10 times this year. At first, it was because of the convenient location next to the Four Points by Sheraton Hollis Street, with easy access without having to go outside. After that we returned for many happy hours when the Keith's draft is half price and the restaurant is hopping with lots of people. Very... More
