    The first two times we went to Wildfish it was our favorite sushi in Chicagoland. This time the food was good, but not outstanding like the previous visits. Our waitress was pleasant but that was about it. Not cranky, not friendly....not really anything. The rolls lacked the pizzazz of the last two visits, and we ordered basically the same thing. The sushi was good, but just good. I'll try it again, but that might be it.

    Very fresh. Good sushi and rolls. I suspect they overbook, besause there's often a wait despite the reservation, and I've been seated in the back party room (more like an overflow room) just for a table for 3. Despite that, we're repeaters here.

    Went to Wildfish on a Friday evening. Had reservations, but had to wait 45 minutes for a table. Many walk-ins to the restaurant and they obviously could not handle the crowd (maybe too many groupons?) The restaurant is known for sushi - yet we found their options to be rather limited. Some of the patrons near us waited a half hour or more for their food (we waited about 20 minutes) - not what we usually experience in sushi restaurant.

    The sushi is ok, but it ends there. How do people tolerate the lethargic service at this place? Never a smile from the young and disinterested wait staff. Insufficient silverware and only one visit from the waitress after the meal was served. We finally went and found our own. I suppose there was no need to try since we were a party of six and they thus charged a mandatory tip. There are so many good sushi spots. Who needs this one?

    The sushi was great, but the entree just ordinary. Also, without telling us in advance, the restaurant told us when we arrived that we'd have to choose between using a groupon and getting our Open table points, which certainly didn't start the evening on a positive note. So, be warned, but then go enjoy the sushi.
