We were enroute to theater at Broadway Playhouse and this was a wonderful option-- in the neighborhood, convenient, with excellent menu choices and solicitous service even with the busy attendance and flow of the neighborhood. There were choices for everyone, excellent beverages and attractive daily specials. My skirt steak entree was everything I could want and my wife raved about the special salad she ordered. We look forward to our next trip, with or without the theater attraction which brought us this time.

Two of us enjoyed lunch before going to the matinee at the Broadway Playhouse at the Water Tower. Good thing we had a reservation as the line was getting somewhat longer at that time. We were seated at 12:30. Both of us ordered the Thanksgiving lunch and enjoyed turkey, dressing, cranberries and dessert, and had ample time to be seated in the theatre by 2:00.

Mity Nice has gone through a number of iterations. I feel like the current experience is again more accommodating of neighborhood diners than some past experiences. Thank you. The three of us had three different entrees and enjoyed them all.

My wife has some severe food allergies and the wait staff and the manager bent over backwards to meet her needs. This was our first time here, and we will definitely return.

I always enjoy eating at Mity Nice. This visit I decided to try the chicken & waffles. I was a little disappointed. The waffles weren't hot and the tenders were not as good as they usually are.

Mity Nice is so reliable, we are never disappointed in the food and service and they honor reservations without delay. We had theatre tix in the theatre downstairs and our server could not have been nicer in being sure we finished on time.

Would recommend, but only if they don't sit in the booth near the swinging kitchen doors - the doors continually hit the back of the booth, which is irritating AS HELL - why does this restaurant even have that situation? Food great, service very good, but those damn doors.....

The food is consistently excellent at Mity Nice and it is a wonderful spot for sharing a meal, being able to talk and their adaptability in the kitchen. Something went haywire and the host couldn’t find my reservation despite the rest of the party already having checked in and seated. Still a great place.

Mity Nice never disappoints. The food is reliably delicious and served to order. The wait staff is exceptional, friendly, courteous and eager to please. The ambiance allows for good conversation. All in all, an exceptional value and a great neighborhood dining spot.

I feel like Mity Nice is somewhat of a hidden gem. The food there is outstanding - including the complimentary popovers - and really well-priced. Service is lovely and this visit I managed to snag a happy hour martini at the bar before seating. We had comfort food - meatloaf plate and Thanksgiving dinner - and the portions were generous and every component tasty. Always so happy to be in the neighborhood to go to Mity Nice and let others in on the "secret".

Mity Nice has been our "go to" restaurant in the Gold Coast neighborhood for several years. The menu is diverse and changes often while keeping some of its classics. It's low-key atmosphere allows conversational-level talking with a lot of diversions. It's tucked away behind an upscale food court -- no, that's not an oxymoron -- on the mezzanine level of Water Tower Shopping Center and not a place you would "stumble over." The veteran waitstaff accommodates special requests, but the real star of the show is Antoine, the maitre'd, who makes you feel as if he's having you over for dinner in his own home -- until the check arrives, that is. Prices reflect the quality of offerings as well as the location, but two can have a wonderful meal along with a round of drinks and get out for around the best $50-60 you've spent in a restaurant.

We did not find the food up to par as usual. The flatbread’s either had too much cheese or too much space. It was just not their usual good lunch. As always the servers are excellent and do whatever they can to accommodate you

Who would guess the best neighborhood diner could be on the second floor of a vertical luxury shopping center and comes with a bartender who knows what to and how to do it. Service is cheerful and friendly without being intrusive. The food is mouth watering in all of the many offerings every time. The noise level...what noise level?
This is our go-to for family from 2 to 8 persons; 7 years - 80 years old.
Just splendid!
