Good wineOutstanding service, great wine, great food presentation5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday LunchWe got to sit at the window--gorgeous day so most people sitting outside. Big Eye Tuna appetizer was delicious . Sushi platter also beautiful in taste and presentation. Great spot for lunch or dinner.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchWe were seated on time. Flowers were ready to pick out, table with a great view. Food was abundant and awesome. Service was great with much attention to detail. A little bit pricey, but worth it depending on the occasion. Definitely will be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a perfect spot forThis was a perfect spot for a Mother's Day Brunch. As usual, the chefs and staff went all out to make a memorable moment.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular Mother's Day BrunchOur table offered an amazing view of sun dappled Lake Michigan, we ate superbly prepared exquisite cuisine from virtually every food group, the staff was attentive and gave impeccable service, the desserts were magnificent and the bouquet of stunning tulips were a lovely touch....that would describe the 2013 Mother's Day brunch at Nomi.
As we left, my mother and I were each presented with a lovely bouquet of tulips (we had each selected our color preference upon entering the dining room). What a gorgeous experience. Bravo to the staff at Nomi.
the bill was not for the feint of heart, however. But hey, it's your mother. and it's one day a year. Totally worth it!
5 STARS.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent even thoughFood was excellent even though the menu was a little limited. Nice wine list, beautiful view, friendly staff, nice leisurely dinner without feeling rushed.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Birthday CelebrationFrom the moment we arrived the hostess and wait staff made sure our event was special. We had a table near the window, the sun was streaming in, and the food was delicious! Highly recommended!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMa chic destination.I loved the open- airiness of the restaurant. The view was amazing. The food was top notch from flavor to presentation and from starters thru to dessert.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNo regrets but......the food was only average. I was there for lunch and had the artichoke soup and Cuban sandwich. The soup was good, but the sandwich wasn't up to par with other Cuban's that I've had before probably because of the bread. The chocolate dessert tasted as though it were just out of the freezer. My companion did very much enjoy the salmon entree but the rhubarb dessert was just OK. Disappointing, but the view and service were very good.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place to relax and unwind!Dined here during a business trip and on the evening after our toughest day of work of the week. We were seated at the window overlooking the old Water Tower and views down Michigan Avenue and out to the lake. To top it off our food was amazing the wait staff were excellent. Will definitely return to NoMi.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent venue for conversation.Excellent venue for conversation. Service is perfect, while unobtusive. Window tables give spectacular views, and tables are separated enough to keep discourse confidential. Eclectic menu with something for everyone - we had the sushi platter and the cuban sandwhich, both of which were very good.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion place becauseSpecial occasion place because of the view and elegant ambiance only. The food is really good but not its biggest forte. Comparable food found on similarly high priced restaurants. Besides the wine list and the menu is limited.
Went for our anniversary because my wife wanted something "upscale" and different to our repertoir. Otherwise not my cup of tea.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousAnother wonderful night in Chicago! While the restaurant is a bit louder than I would like when food is the focus, the overall ambiance was very nice. Service was very good, and they all cared about providing a wonderful experience. The meal was delicious from start to finish.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove and beyond!They made a father daughter (8 year old) special dinner out spectacular. Without prompting, they gave us a behind the scenes view of the kitchen and allowedt daughter to help the pastry chef make our desert. We arrived early, 5:30, so getting the extra attention was easy to come by. Daughter has already decided that we are going to NoMI every year until she is old enough to be their chef, server, designer, etc...4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came here for my sister'sWe came here for my sister's 30th birthday and it was absolutely perfect. We were given our own private room with an amazing view. We loved the ambience and the private room added to the special-ness of the evening.

However we ordered the fish special for our main course and it was disappointing. Tablecloths4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing every time!!I cannot say enough great things about this place! When you make your reservation be sure and request to sit by the window. It has a gorgeous scenic view of Michigan Ave, and both times we have been they have honored this request. Service is fantastic and you can even request their sommelier to pair wines with your meal. Food is always changing and very unique and seasonal so its great for foodies. Very romantic and they let you dine at your leisure so you dont feel rushed. After dinner there is a great bar area, as well as outdoor terrace area for cocktails in the summer. The Wild Bolivian chocolate dessert is a MUST, we actually will go to NoMi after dinners elsewhere just to have this dessert.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNoMi has a beautiful viewNoMi has a beautiful view of the city. Food tasted very good but portions are very small for any restaurant but even more so for the price. Nice place to go for a special occasion4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous View for lunchThe view of Lake Michigan and Michigan Avenue from window seats at NoMI was an added bonus for lunch. We had the place to ourselves. (Hence the 1000 point table. It seems that the upstairs restaurants like this and Spiagga Cafe have trouble getting folks to come upstairs at lunch.)
We enjoyed our food. I was quite pleased with the NoMI Roll, which was freshly prepared and they adjusted the Wagu Burger to my Wife's special requests.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply incredible. . the food,Simply incredible. . the food, the service, the view -- all top notch.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMthe entire staff is professional,the entire staff is professional, helpful, friendly, extremely attentive and made our visit to Chicago extremely memorable! This will be the place we will come back to every time we visit. Thank you for an amazing exerience!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food preparationOutstanding food preparation for Easter brunch. There is also an entree option which some people took. Salmon entree-excellent. Great crab claw. Sushi. Smoked salmon tartine. Good salads. Wonderful lamb. Fresh fruit. Tasteful desserts. One part of menu served egg dishes early, another, after 2 PM had more vegetables.
Great view if You are near a window overlooking Water Tower. The view and the light make this special. Staff could have been more attentive, but it was a long brunch day for them.
Holidays may be more upscale compared to usual brunch. High cost.
You may walk through a busy bar to restaurant. Limited space in restaurant,but this is a design issue. Reception staff recognizes more frequent visitors.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best sushi ever!

Gorgeous view, awesome service. I've been twice and loved it both times3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceExcellent food and service but overpriced with small portions.Most of the patrons seemed to be tourists. The club music playing in the background was annoying.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view of Michigan AveGreat view of Michigan Ave at dinner. The food and service were great! We were celebrating our 10 yr anniversary & they surprised us with a nice dessert. Would definitely recommend for a romantic dinner.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our new favorites!We went there for my fiances birthday and it was perfect. I made reservations far enough in advance that we were seated in the floor to ceiling main window overlooking Michigan Ave. Our server was very helpful in making suggestions and guiding us through a fairly extensive menu. The food was all exceptional and with a vibrant, semi-casual atmosphere we relaxed and enjoyed our 2 hour plus experience of fine cuisine and solid service. Prices are very reasonable for such an exceptional experience. We will definitely be back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal of the trip. FantasticBest meal of the trip. Fantastic staff very friendly knowledgeable and overall excellent.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!Fabulous service can make for a wonderful experience, and Sean did just that! Many times you can go to a really nice restaurant and experience stuffy service, but not here. Sean went above and beyond to make my husband's birthday celebration one to remember! He was knowledgeable, and anticipated every need throughout the night. The food was great, especially the tender short ribs! I would love that recipe! We were disappointed in the sommelier's Bordeaux recommendation, and wish he would have come back to ask how it was. We topped off the night with dessert wines that Sean paired with our desserts. Perfect!! We will definitely go back and ask request Sean as our server! Thanks for a wonderful evening!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe got there 30min beforeWe got there 30min before our reservation, but they couldn't seat us at the main restaurant room, and had to share a long table with other people in the bar area, at the entrance of the restaurant. We couldn't appreciate the wonderful view from there.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!!Went here with two good girlfriends, all with eclectic tastes. We all found several options and the food is amazing!!!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great night with delectableHad a great night with delectable food and very attentive and friendly service; Sat in the private room with the spectacular view of the old Water Tower.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal, good buzz on busy nightIt was a busy Saturday night, but service was excellent. We enjoyed watching the open kitchen. Excellent Rye Gnocchi, Sushi and salad first courses in our party. The rib-eye steaks and fries were outstanding, as was the venison. The braised short ribs got mixed reviews at our table. Desserts were big enough to share, but not huge. The wine list has some really nice selections. Overall, a great evening.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale lunchA great view to Michigan Ave with delicious food and service. A little pricey,but you get what you pay for.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMChicago Restaurant Week broughtChicago Restaurant Week brought me to this wonderful venue. There were two selections in each of the courses - appetizer, main, and dessert - so my lunch companion and I tried them all. Soup, salad, mushroom panini, mac/cheese, cookie plate, and custard with the wine flight option. The combination of the 7th floor view over the Water Tower (we had a window seat), with the meal presentation and food flavors was2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first & likelyIt was our first & likely last visit to NoMi Kitchen. We went for restaurant week hoping to find some good value instead we found an underwhelming menu with small portions and an overly "casual sophisticated" ambiance. Perhaps they are trying too hard to be chic. We forgot this is a hotel restaurant so prices are outrageously high and since part spa (the spa smell is overbearing as you enter) they have to feed you as if you need to lose 2 pounds before midnight.
So the food was good but not great - best choices truffled mac and cheese with a creamy (not gooey) sauce and roasted mushroom panini. Don't bother with the upcharge options for entrees - even less food for more money! If not for our waiter (and view) the day would have been a bust2/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy mother and sister enjoyedMy mother and sister enjoyed the experience more than I did: they would like to return; I think there are many better restaurants in Chicago. Their sushi rolls were good; as were their pumpkin soup and barley salad. The food was good, but I didn't think it was anything to write home about. My family does plan to go to the lounge this evening to have hot chocolate at the hot chocolate bar.12/6/2012 12:00:00 AM
