Great staff and good food. Fun booths give a sense of privacy - good crowd but didn't feel crowded.

We love this neighborhood sushi spot and so does our almost 3-yr old. In fact, our little guy loves the calamari there! Doesn’t leave any for us to have. The rolls are excellent and I recommend any of the Dragon rolls, Men In Black, and Dirty Old Man (cute names right?!?). You can’t go wrong with the food and service here as well as a nice friendly atmosphere.

I have been to this restaurant several times. I was very disappointed in the service and quality of the food. The fish was not fresh and the service took forever even though we were the only ones in the restaurant. I will not go back.

This place is a go-to for special occasions as a group or a more intimate date night. The sushi is always some of the best ever, and there are great options for drinks and dessert if you want them. A must try if you like sushi!

Terrible service. None of the waitstaff knew what they were doing. It was also a week after Valentine’s Day and the whole restaurant was decked out with cheap Valentines balloons and decorations. Need new management.

The food was great but the service, although friendly, was so slow! We ordered a few app's to start but our server never came back to take the rest of our order. Once we finally put in our order, only half came out ... then after another half hour the rest came out. And forget about ordering drinks ... took forever.

The food was delicious but our server was very slow & we finally had to cancel our 2nd round of drinks as we needed to make the show at the Uptown Underground. Finally after what seemed like an eternity the bill csme but we were charged for the 2nd round of drinks We complained and a corrected bill arrived leaving us just enough time to get to the show.

Great service, great food. When we made the reservation, we said it was for a birthday dinner prior to a magic show across the road. Our waitress made sure to bring our food in a timely manner so that we did not miss any of the show (we were cutting it close time wise). Additionally, they took a picture of us when they brought out he surprise birthday treat. After a great meal they sent us on our way with a framed memory. Will most certainly return.

The food was very tasty and the service was good. We went on a Thursday night, so it wasn't too busy, but I can imagine this place filling up on a weekend. It had a fun atmosphere, but the food was the highlight of our visit.

As usual, this sushi restaurant serves the finest, freshest fish, ensuring delicious, beautifully creative, succulent dishes that never disappoint. Judy and her staff always deliver top notch service providing a wonderful dining experience. They always add that final personal and special touch. This has always been one of my most favorite Chicago restaurants.

My S.O. and I went early - 6:30 - on a Friday night. There were only a few tables occupied. The two of us sat on a comfy semi-circular bench - nice to sit next to each other. The Men in Black roll was exceptional, the Green Dragon was good. My mackerel nigiri was too cold and was fishier tasting than the best I've had. We finished with the fried calamari and were surprised that it was much more Italian than expected, but it was very good. Service was just right - the waitress wasn't harried and took the time to chat with us.

Martinis were great and the shrimp appetizer was yummy! Overall sushi was good but a little overpriced. We would go back but for a special occasion. There are more affordable options on par in the neighborhood.

Never again,
Been there many times before. After last night with a carry out experience overpriced mediocrity restaurant with no customer service. I have allergies and I can not eat onions. The same meal I get in restaurant was different with onions. After a 50 dollar carryout for 2. They could only say not trying to be rude. Stay away from agami

I noted on our Open Table reservation that we would be celebrating my daughter's birthday. When we arrived, our booth had a "Happy Birthday" sign already hanging. At the end of dinner, our server took a picture of our group and gave it to us in a frame as a souvenir. Our food was absolutely delicious. Everyone enjoyed their appetizer and dinner. The staff was friendly, engaging, and helpful.
