NIQUE is not just a restaurant.
IT'S A FAMILY OF YOUNG, PASSIONATE INDIVIDUALS EAGER TO PROVIDE OUR CUSTOMERS WITH A DYNAMIC AND WELCOMING EXPERIENCE.
We think our approach to food and drink is inherently Canadian.

Not because we serve beavertail poutine with maple syrup gravy (we don't serve this), but because our menu is a cultural mosaic.

This nod to Canadian culture allows us to be both approachable and adventurous.

We believe that by giving people delicious food in a comfortable environment, we can foster a strong community and a sense of home that will surprise and delight you.

I had been to Nique before within the first year of opening and had a great experience so I decided to return for a special occasion. This time I found the food preparation to not be not on par with previous visit. I had the Blue cheese crusted NY strip steak which ended up being a pile of brown blue coloured cheese on top. Also, the Caesar salad is grilled and came out like a warm wilted mess. For the $$$ I would not recommend.

Fantastic! Food was incredible. My husband had the boi RD and I had the fried chicken. Best fried chicken I have had, crisp on the outside, juicy on the inside. Had a dessert that was a peanut butter mousse with a chocolate coating, ice cream and caramel sauce it was delicious! It was quite busy but service was very good. We will definitely dine their again.

I ordered the sushi nachos. I cannot believe it was $20 for a plate of nachos that had barely any fish on it. There was only puffed rice (that looked like fried meal worms), sliced jalapenos and a mayo dressing with 8 or 9 very small cubes of fish. Totally not worth the money. My friend had the Cobb salad, which usually comes with hard boiled eggs - the eggs were soft boiled to the point of snotty whites. The server did ask if she wanted her eggs replaced but she was already turned off by the runny egg that she settled for the lettuce and few chicken pieces that was the remainder of her salad, again not worth the money. We were both very disappointed with our experience. Our waitress was the only good thing about our experience. It was our first time eating at Nique and we likely won't be back again.

Food and service, as always, were great. Drag Brunch Entertainment (second seating) was a huge disappointment. I have been to previous Drag brunches and was so entertained. I would not recommend this particular event again. I took friends based on my previous experience and was embarrassed that only 2 songs were "performed".

Hey Heather, Thanks for reaching out. We are so happy that you enjoyed our food and service, and of course, are grateful for your continued patronage. I'm sorry that the performance this past Drag Brunch was not what you were expecting. We are working closely with the our partners for the event to source talent for the next Drag Brunch that is more representative of both our expectations. I'd love to do something for you next time you come in. Please email me at nicolas@niquerestaurant.ca !

Nique is an awesome restaurant. I love the fresh ways they offer food (Chicken and Waffles for brunch!!! Sushi Nachos for an appy!!! ) The staff is amazing and very friendly, and the service just perfect.

Good food. Good vibe. Drink and dinner service was much slower than I would like. Staff was friendly and polite. At least 4 staff folks wished us well on the way out. I'd go back on a less busy night.

Great ambience, attentive and prompt servers. Excellent wine and craft beer selection and a good selection of cocktails. Great for drinks or a meal. This particular visit was for dinner, but previous visits for brunch have been outstanding also.

The shakshuka was incredible and the Pims pitcher was a perfect accompaniment- especially on Wimbledon final day 🎾 the potato wedges on the side were crisped and baked to perfection and the mushroom truffle toast was delicious. Nice patio too!

We went to have dinner with my in-laws and everything was fantastic.
We had the fried chicken and the “chef boi oh dee” and couldn’t have been happier.
Their sangria was one of the best I’ve had, although a little small. However a pitcher comes with a small side of sushi nachos which are a must have.

Absolutely delicious food at a very reasonable price. They had a booth at the RBC Canadian Open and we tried it there and came back to their downtown location to check it out. Well worth it and I highly recommend the fried chicken!

I had the hot fried bass, it tasted okay and had the perfect amount of heat, it came whole and was a pain to sift through all the bones to reveal an underwhelming amount of meat, it came with generic coleslaw and 2 slices of oil saturated toast but could expect to have had a better fish dish almost anywhere else for $28. A better description of the dishes on the menu is needed. Service was great though.

Very disappointed. Black bean burger was dry and crispy. Breakfasts were fine. Avocado toast very bland with peas and cucumber chunks.
The services ... well it took over and hour to get our simple food. We had to go to the bar and ask for another drink.
However before we were done eating literally fork still in hand our waitress took the plate away...
we were told there was probably no dessert when we asked for dessert menus.
Then we were told there was only one option espresso cake.
So no we would not return. Too bad such a cool atmosphere
