Excellent food, duck salad was great, and sushi was fresh. Alcohol a bit overpriced. Service was very good but a tad slow, understandable given its really busy on the day we went

WOW was our experience @ Chiba fantastic! By far, surpassed our expectations & well worth the trip. For both locals & tourists alike, it's the perfect diversion from the traditional Cajun/Creole overload we were on during our three day stay in the French Quarter. We were greeted by the most hospitable host who allowed us to scan the room for the perfect spot. We choose a booth just off the bar & again, were greeted with the warmest, friendliest & most adorable bartender who also served as our waitress. Being a party of 4 vegan females...we can be a tough camp at times. She patiently explained our options not only on the menu, but also around town. This spacious, Asian inspired eclectic warehouse setting was the perfect mix of both sophisticated & totally hip. Clean, inspiring & lotsa local art. The food was presented beautifully & was absolutely delicious. All eight of our thumbs are up high & HIGHLY recommend this New Orleans CAN'T MISS!

We didn't think it was possible to get a bad meal in NOLA. Sadly, we were incredibly mistaken. We love sushi and have had it in many cities all over the world. This food is absolutely terrible. Very poor quality, nasty fish. We are back home drinking tea and trying to settle our stomachs. So very bad.

Selected by family for a graduation celebration and the restaurant was able to meet expectations for a very wide range of ages (2-70) and palates (including vegetarians). Wait staff very pleasant.

Whitney is the best! We eat there a few times a month and treats us great. She remembers our drinks, the dishes we liked from the previous visits, and always makes great recommendations. I strongly suggest you try this spot. The Mexican Grand Prix is my favorite! Truly a unique and creative dish!

I find that there's a dearth of good sushi in NOLA, but I'm glad to have found Chiba. The service was very good and the sushi was all fresh and well made. The seaweed salad was particularly large in its portion, which is unusual. The décor is very modern and overall the place has a very nice vibe.

Christmas Evening

OpenTable Diner (New York Area)
2.0  Dined on December 25, 2016

we came on christmas day. The hostess informed us that even though we had a 9 pm reservation, that they overbooked and it was a 45 minute wait. I asked multiple times for a free table, and eventually we were seated. We ordered a soup and it came cold, and had to be sent back. We ordered 3 rolls, to keep it simple -- no specialty rolls. it took over 1.15 minutes for the sushi to come. To be fair, it was christmas day and packed. But they overbooked and the food was average

Fantastic service and food. Love the late-night hours, and all the happy hour options, since I work in the service industry and live nearby. This place is my favorite for sushi!
