    Dine at the restuarant about every year and a half. Would be more often but a family has popped up. All I have to say is the sushi is still wonderful, service is super, wine selection and price range good and the meal was excellent for all four diners. No dessert but the coffee was thick and frothy, perfect.

    I asked for a window table on OpenTable knowing that was probably often requested and most likely not possible. Arrived early, had a glass of wine in the bar, very pleasant service, and then told a window seat would be available soon if we could wait a bit. The Receptionist remembered the request! That was the start of the outstanding service that accompanied a simply wonderful dinner. Our waiter was pleasant and perfectly unobtrusive while never letting an item go un-noticed. The window view simply enhanced the evening. Our first visit to NoMI and it will not be the last.

    My wife and I celebrated her 30th birthday here. The view was great. We had a window seat looking out to Michigan Avenue and the Waterplace tower with a glimpse of the lake. The food in General was very good. We ordered Tiger Maki, Flat Iron Steak, and NoMI burger. We also ordered Complete Silence (lemonade and grapefruit juice with ginger syrup) to go with the meal. The Maki, the steak, and the drink were excellent. The burger however was disappointing. The server was polite but could be more attending. He partially redeemed himself by giving us a free cookie and chips plate as a birthday present to my wife. Overall, we had a pleasant experience and we would definitely come back for another special occasion.

    This is certainly one of Chicago's great restaurants. Relaxed, elegant, with flawless food. The sommelier was nothing but enthusiastic and helpful. I'd i had a complaint, I'd say the wine markup is a bit steep, akin to Lettuce Entertain You restaurants (they gouge you on wine), but for the quality, the food actually could be called well-priced.

    Although the food was 100%, the service was poor. First courses served after the main course.....expresso which became a latte????? Ugh! Hope it was just a bad night. Wine service was pretty lame too. Once the bottle was dropped by, everyone was on their own. This place used to be a whole lot better before it changed to a more casual setting. So, I guess it is just a mediocre restaurant (service) in a classy setting.

    NoMI, absolutely in my top list. This is the place where can match all your request, business, travel, night life and brunch. My experience starts from dinner. However, the brunch and night bar are the real magic. You can hardly find a place where can use so simple things to make such a great taste food. Fresh is the most accurate word to describe it. Everything on the brunch menu are amazing. Personal favorites are Free Range Eggs and NoMI Green. Must try Elderflower Raspberry Parfait for dessert.

    While the atmosphere, service, and selection are certainly unique and special occasion-worthy, the actual food I ate was not- market fish, Striped Bass, which was the smallest portion of fish I've ever seen served, atop roughly 5 slices of vegetables, plated with a bland puree. I'm not a large portion person, but this was ridiculous. The burrata was exceptional, wine list was as well, so perhaps it was just my dish, but it was enough that I was underwhelmed for $100 a person.

    Two friends and I dined on the terrace for brunch. When one of my friends politely alerted our waiter to an issue with her food, his response could not have been more professional. I seriously have never received such incredibly perfect service. Needless to say, the NoMI staff fixed the issue and more than made up for it with their response. Other restaurants can take a page from their book. To top it off, the food and atmosphere were excellent as always. I would not hesitate to continue recommending NoMI -- and I have been telling everyone I know.

    We shared the red snapper special that included several sides and was prepared table side. Truly one of the best dishes we've had in a long time. Everything about the restaurant was superb -- highly recommend. On a wine note, we drink wine every evening but were not familiar with many on the list. The som was helpful and helped keep us on our price range without making us feel like idiots.

    My mom's birthday and high hopes for NOMI. I expected a magical meal, instead it was odd service, variable food and a great view of the Water Tower. The waiter was odd. He started by calling me sir (don't laugh--I look female!), then he didn't remind me to order a side. At the end he embarrassed me by making a mistake. He rang up the bill on a room receipt and didn't tell me. I signed the receipt and then he chased me through the restaurant in a panic (a bit slapstick). The food went from good, the Maki; to bad, the Frois gras on a waffle with jam. it was over cooked (not buttery, stringy), the waffle and jam overly sweet...UGH. Starbucks has a better dessert selection. We had a forgettable almond tart and a cherry thing without flavor.

    The only reason I am giving this restaurant 3 stars is because NoMi's food menu is lacking. A friend and I had dinner on a Saturday night and found the menu had very little options. However, what we did order was prepared extremely well. Despite this, the rest of our experience was phenomenal! First off, it's on the 7th floor of the Park Hyatt hotel and has amazing views of the Water Tower place. There is also an outdoor dining area that's perfect for summer nights. The restaurant itself is also very posh and the decor is simple but trendy. What the food menu lacks, the drink menu makes up in full force. The cocktail menu is very diverse and there is something for every tastebud. Bonus for the ladies, the servers are incredibly handsome.

    Dined here for our 10th wedding anniversary, and it didn't disappoint. We were seated near the windows overlooking the Water Tower which made for a fantastic view as the sun set and the lights lit up. Food and service were timely with very little intervals between courses. The open kitchen also provided a fun distraction as we could watch different dishes be created. I'd definitely return again.

    They were off their usual a game when I dined there this past Saturday . Everyone is allowed one pass but with so many choices , consistency must come back . I had not been to the restaurant in about 3 months so perhaps a change in the key players is occurring . For now , it is a perfectly fine restaurant in a hotel . Not spectacular but above average .

From the unique starters to a Red Snapper for two that wads cooked to perfection. Will try and go back if we're ever in Chicago again

    Waiter not knowledgeable and overwhelmed. We made reservations for Garden seating outside through Open Table and when we got there they informed us they don't take reservations for outdoor seating. So we waited for outdoor seating. We were seated inches away from a random loud couple. Ordered seafood platter upon waiter's recommendation bc he told us there were raw clams and there was none when served. We were told they could not accommodate combining a sausage and cheese platter together which we later ordered from room service which is taken from the NoMI restaurant. No mention of our 20th anniversary even though noted on the reservation. We left hungry bc restaurant was recommended for their sashimi which was extremely limited.

    Went to NoMi for my birthday. The entire experience was terrific. Our waiter Jay was absolutely wonderful. We ordered wine before dinner and the sommelier, Ken came over to see how we liked it, he gave me some information on my selection that was interesting. When we ordered, we had some additional questions about wine choices so Ken the sommelier came back. He helped us with a selection, which was fabulous. We had a table with a partial view. Just after our appetizer, Jay came over with some staff and said "a table by the windows has opened up, were moving you". We spent the rest of the night with a gorgeous view of the water tower and the pumping station. How thoughtful, they won our hearts! The food was as fab as anything in the city.

The sushi was fresh and tasty, and two of us split cheese & charcuterie great for dinner. It was more than enough. Our Walter was initially attentive, and other servers Kelly water filled and dishes cleared, but the waiter forgot us late in three meal. Disappointing end to an otherwise great evening.

    From the moment we entered the establishment via the designated elevator, I noted the outdoor "Garden Dining area/bar" was full of guests and we wanted to get a drink there before dinner, but it was a bit windy, so we opted to head for our table instead. We were greeted and seated by our hostess and marveled at the fabulous view from our table near the window. The vista was unobstructed to our beautiful Lake Michigan, with the Water Tower, Museum of Modern Art and views of Michigan Avenue in between. As day turned to night, we were treated with the utmost care by our server, Joe, and every dish & desserts we were served was prepared, seasoned and plated so beautifully & presented by Chef Keith & Rachel with professional expertise.

Rarely do I make an early reservation but I missed lunch and decided on an early dinner at 6:00. Loved the initial calm but didn't want it to last too long. Sure enough, by 6:30 the place was full of energy and just perfect. Nomi continues to be a gem and we will definitely be back.

Food and wine were excellent and with a very quiet suggestion to me, the server also brought our guest a beautiful dessert to celebrate her birthday. The staff really made it a special night.
