It is very good but a smidge
It is very good but a smidge pricy. Great for a group though!

Beautiful and taste beyond plate
The sushi rolls were not only creative in ingredients, full of fun flavor combinations and well plated, but the portion sizes were incredible. At most sushi venues we can easily eat 3 rolls and find ourselves mildly full. At Agami, 2 rolls are plenty, but if you're like us, you find you won't want to stop. It's that good! Try the Agami Volcano, The Red Alert and The Sand Storm rolls.
It's also a great spot for romantic occasions. It was our anniversary and we found the ambiance to be quite fitting for the event. We were treated so well by everyone, from the hostess to the bartender to our server. Definitely will be going back!

Food: Hooray for the specialty rolls! We had the Kiss of Fire and the Dark Knight- both really delicious. Add on a bowl of edamame and a veggie tempura appetizer and we were absolutely stuffed. The hot sake is super cheap compared to other beverages on the menu, and since we're not connosieurs, that suited us just fine. Total came out to $69 with tip- a little spendy, but totally fine for a special night out.
Service: Professional and friendly staff. Our waiter pushed the booze with every pass, but that was only a minor annoyance.
Ambiance: Lovely, though at 6:30, we were the only ones in the restaurant. The big red round booths are a great visual. Giant TVs over the bar are a bit distracting, but a minor complaint.

I've been to Agami about a half dozen times, and it never disappoints. The service is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They have a lot of options for vegetarians, probably the biggest I've ever seen at a sushi restaurant. I never understand why this place isn't more busy, but I'm glad we can go there anytime, even Saturday night, and stroll in and be seated immediately.

best sushi in town
Agami exceeded all my expectations! The sushi was the best I have had so far in Chicago; split 3 specialty rolls with my date and we couldn't stop raving about how fresh, unique and delicious they were! Our server was amazing and knew the sushi and drink menus up and down and gave us plenty of time as we were quite indecisive :)The vibe was trendy and would be great for a date night or night out with friends. I can't wait to go back!!!!

Great experience at Agami
We did a pre-theater show, so it was pretty quiet, but I'm guessing the disco beats get pretty bumpin' later on. The food was delicious, and our server was fantastic. I would highly recommend, especially as there are few choices in this neck of the woods.

We went to this restaurant
We went to this restaurant for the first time on Saturday to celebrate my bf's birthday. When we arrived they had our booth ready complete with decorations (banner and a birthday balloon). The waiter took a picture of us in the booth and by the time we were ready to leave he had the picture framed for us, which we thought was absolutely great. We also received a free dessert since it was his birthday. They went above and beyond to make our experience there special. The food was great (We ordered a few different rolls).

The décor is refreshingly different, going for a modern loft feel with Asian accents, and big comfortable booths in the front room. Our server was the appropriate balance of friendliness, helpfulness and the sushi was very good, with some unusual and distinctive specialty rolls. Very pleasant dinner.
