SolidNaha continues to deliver. I haven't been there for a couple years, and it was better than I remember. Service was great! Our waiter was attentive without hovering! Venison medallions were excellent. Halibut was solid and beet salad was an excellent starter. A bit on the pricey side, but worth it, particularly for anybspecial occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA class actExquisite service and food. We had the mushroom soup with fresh morels, a simple salad, and a spectacular cut of beef and an intriguing assortment of cheeses for dessert. Great wine list. Our server was intelligent, well informed, and attentive. Great place for a quiet elegant meal.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Choice!I thought the food was spectacular!! The tables are spacious so you don't feel like you're sitting on top of the people next to you. Service was great but there was a large party so the food came out a little too slowly. All around, it was a fabulous dining experience!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated my adult daughter'sWe celebrated my adult daughter's birthday at Naha's but my husband and I celebrated "just us" at Naha several months prior. Each time we had wonderful servers who were gracious and helpful. Last Saturday, we all wanted the soup but we also wanted other appetizers so the waiter told us " I can take care of that easily'. And he did! We all had a small portion of this fantastic cream of mushroom soup(served elegantly) AND the an appetizer of our choice. It was a little thing but we so appreciated it. The rest of the meal was wonderful. The food is spectacular. The cocktails were were inventive, tasty and playfully named. The wines were outstanding. All in all, it was a wonderful experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI have loved this place sinceI have loved this place since it opened. It never diappoints. There is no better restaurant in Chicago.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful place. Our waiterBeautiful place. Our waiter was attentive but not obtrusive. The food was delicious - the venison was the best I've ever had.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visited Naha the firstWe visited Naha the first time and liked it a lot. The selection of meals is great, in particular also for a vegetarian (no fish, no meat) it´s easy to find a delicious meal. The service was very nice and it is sure that we will come again.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience. PerfectGreat experience. Perfect for a special, out-of-town business dinner.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu is creative and containedThe menu is creative and contained no run-of-the-mill items and the visual presentation is imaginative. An excellent cocktail and wine list. All three of our by-the-glass selections were excellent. The cost is on the stiff side but worth the price, considering the creativity of each dish, even the desserts. Service was very competent and added to the value. At first there was a very noisy (male) crowd at the bar which disturbed because it is close to the dining area.
When we left the general manager personally took us to your new Les Brindilles Restaurant up the street and connected us with the sommelier, as a favor. Bravo.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMUnusual combinations and choicesUnusual combinations and choices of fish and game, creative and attractive presentation, accompanied by beautiful atmosphere and top-notch service. The entrees were outstanding.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the oysters and Squab,I had the oysters and Squab, husband had the scallops and steak, amazing food!! Great service! Will defiantly go back4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went a little early forWe went a little early for dinner (6:30) on a Friday night so the place was not very full and the lights were still bright. This was no fault if the restaurant, but if we go back we will certainly go later. By the time we left at 8:15, I would classify the ambiance as perfect.
Food was amazing. All our courses were delivered not to fast or slow, just as desired.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is always lovely to eatIt is always lovely to eat at Naha. The food and service are perfect.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was very good.Everything was very good. However what I don't understand is the reservation policy. That Monday we visited the restaurant there were plenty of empty tables. But when I four weeks ago had tried to make a reservation for five opentable always gave a notice that this is not possible. Maybe there is a fault in the program which should be corrected.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNaha was everything an excellentNaha was everything an excellent restaurant should be: warm, welcoming and delicious. The food and the service were beyond reproach.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSimple menu however greatSimple menu however great selections. The food was outstanding...enjoyed the beet salad & the duck was perfectly prepared. Appreciated that couples/parties were seated for privacy. WIll return sooner than later. Thank you.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood restaurantOverall I loved it, but the server was a bit cold, not too bad but cold. The busboys did a great job making sure our water was full. The food was good I had the risotto with pork, it did not have much pork. I think the kitchen shorted us on that as well as the oxtail on the gnocchi. Ribeye could of used a bit more, it was tasty but it was just a hunk of meat, some arugula maybe, a few more potatoes? My girlfriend loved the fish, dessert was nothing out of the ordinary. I would go back3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOverpriced!!! But Good Food/ServiceThis was our second time here. We came back (1.5 years later) because we felt like we weren't giving it a fair shot as our recollection was that it was unmemorable and overpriced. Unfortunately, our memory (or lack thereof) was dead on.
This would be a place I would recommend to anyone if the prices were about $20 cheaper for entrees, if bottles of wine were cheaper, and if appetizers were more reasonable or of larger portion. The price point is just way off here.
The service was amazing and the food was really good.
The list of places with more creativity and more to offer for food lovers is significantly larger in Chicago and massively larger if you're seeking a fair value.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNaha is one of my favoriteNaha is one of my favorite restaurants and it did not disappoint during restaurant week when prices were much more manageable. Food was outstanding, great value, and good service. The restaurant was full and a bit noisy to talk with our friends.2/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOur third visit in 8 monthsOur third visit in 8 months and our least favorite because of the pared down portions for Restaurant Week. That being said we still love Naha. It's just so much better if you pay full fare. We had the butternut squash soup - best part was the pork cheek meat; corn "grits" w/ mushrooms and crispy kale was very imaginative and the beet salad was good but standard.
Salmon entree was tiny - good but not great; pork shank off the bone was tender with good flavor but strangely served on an overcooked and mushy lake of cheese-topped risotto with spinach. It looked bad and felt too rustic.
Almond financier was tasty but overbaked and a bit dry - a trend here.
The wine selections were very good $30/$50/$75 bottles for some really decent offerings2/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
