  • "There are some really great items on the menu but they pack people in so close together, it's hard to enjoy your meal or your company."

  • "We love Chiba. It's one of the many great walkable places in our neighborhood. The food is so fresh and the service is great. But the chairs are incredibly uncomfortable. They look great so I understand why they purchased them. They fit the great ambiance of the place, but terribly uncomfortable to sit in. It won't stop us from going though!"

  • "7:45 reservation, and we were done with drinks & apps by around 8:05. Sushi didn't come out until 9:20. Sat there for 1 hour and 15 minutes waiting on food, with not a great deal of contrition on the part of the wait staff. When food finally came, one roll was missing. Unacceptable in a city where you can choose to go to Ninja, Mikimoto or Rock-N-Sake instead. This place needs to staff more sushi chefs to handle the tables they seat. Also, one of the loudest restaurants in the city. Had to shout to talk to people at our table."

  • "Food was absolutely excellent. I read that the service was a little shaky in the beginning, but it seems they have it under control as the experience was great. Will definitively go back."

  • "When I tell my daughters we are going out to dinner they say, Chiba? Started sampling other parts of the sushi menu, the Tataki, tartar and cerviche. All are amazing! I still say great for children but no later than 6:30 / 7 ish. The servers know us and have been extremely helpful with everything."

  • "We just moved here from San Francisco. Not sure at all what sushi would be like so we gave Chiba a shot. To our surprise it was very very good! Now they forgot the appetizer until entrees arrived, but they comped them so it's okay. Drinks were good. No major complaints."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Our waitress was absent-minded and inattentive. We joked that she was actually working as a waitress at the same time at another restaurant--far away--as it took her so long to do anything. To top things off, there was a problem in splitting up the bill, and it took about an hour just for us to pay."

  • "We made a reservation and still waited 50 minutes for our seats. We them waited another 45 minutes for appetizers. Dinner for 6 people took over 3 hours. The food was good but not great. The 6 people were served in 3 groups of two over a 30 minute period. So the first two people were done eating by the time the last two received their meals. Definitely not worth the wait."

  • "short rib tempura amazing! specialty sushi was 16$ for a roll of 8.. which was a bit pricey banana foster again really good. the owner was serving us... GREAT SERVICE!"

  • "Can't put my finger on it, but if I had to say, Chiba wasn't spectacular. Sushi was average, at above average prices. The drinks were on special, but nothing special about them. Service was friendly, but it took forever to get our food. I feel like a menu revitalization is in order. You're essentially paying for atmosphere. The ambiance is top-notch, but doesn't justify the prices. I would eat there again, but wouldn't recommend it above anywhere else."

  • "We waited an hour and fifteen minutes for our food. Had we known the service would be so poor, we would've stayed at our hotel and had ramen noodles for dinner. Sushi was okay, not bad but certainly not worth the insane wait. They were severely understaffed; I have never been in a restaurant where all 30+ tables were filled and not a single one had any food."

  • "Their Wednesday 4-midnight happy hour is great! Very good specials. Cocktails are all delicious. And their special appetizer of the day, sashimi with truffle oil. was phenomenal!"

  • "Chiba has many interesting and unusual dishes, besides typical sushi. Among the best are short ribs tempura and delicious bananas foster spring roll. It's quite noisy, but the food makes it worthwhile."
