Chiba Ratings and Reviews
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.
Everything we had, appetizers, nigiri, sushi, dessert, and sake were excellent. Our server, "Don" Rob was amazing. Attentive, friendly, professional, amazing. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for good sushi in New Orleans!!!!!
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.
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
A couple rolls are named after formula 1 drivers and tracks. Interesting twist to see such a thing incorporated into the menu. The only downside is the servers don't always know what items have been 86'd for the night. Overall 4 out of 5 stars. Check um out.
My wife and I find at Chiba for the first time. We recently moved to NOLA from the Inner Loop area of Houston, where there are many good Japanese restaurants.
We thought the food at Chiba was excellent. The service was attentive and friendly. We do plan to come back. However, in the interest of improvement, I did find the wine list to be overpriced and not particularly of interest to me. And, the nose level was much too high - they should consider investing in sound dampening accoutrements.
Chiba is by far one of the best sushi restaurants in New Orleans. Others cannot hold a candle to their fresh, delectable rolls and sashimi. Try the refreshing Tuna ceviche for a tangy appetizer and the satsuma-strawberry roll for an entree. If you're lucky enough to catch their happy hour, it will become one of your favorite places to be at 4 o'clock. Perfect for a date spot or just a night out with friends. To top it all off, Chiba is located on booming Oak Street where you can get everything from coffee, craft beer, high-end cocktails, live music, and so much more. Never had a bad experience, and the service is always friendly yet professional. Although it may be pricey for some, it is definitely worth every penny. I highly highly recommend it.
There are only two sushi restaurants in NOLA that I like: Chiba and Rock-N-Sake. I think they are equally good but I'm often not up for parking in the Warehouse District. So I was thrilled a few years ago when Chiba opened. Oak Street is just a great area and easy to get to from most parts of the city, so that's a big plus for me (and for meeting friends out when we're all coming from different locations). I keep going back because the fish is absolutely fresh, their rolls are creative (in a good way), and they have an excellent sake menu. I'm so spoiled by the quality of the sushi at Chiba that I just won't go anywhere else (other than an occasional trip to RnS). The service is always friendly and the bar scene is fun. The only negative for me is that I find the music to loud (so they probably know who is writing this since I sometimes ask them to turn it down). I would much prefer they play more relaxed music--would fit the atmosphere of the restaurant better anyway--at a lower volume. I would probably linger even longer and have even more sake. :-)
Chiba always has high-quality fish and creative sushi dishes. It's a little pricy, but mostly worth it. Their happy hour is unbeatable and their sake list is extensive. Not a place I can afford every week, but definitely a fun spot for a fancy sushi night out! (As an aside, they have one of the best waitstaffs in the city!)
My wife and I went here for a fun Valentine's date. The place is very neat and has a great selection of food. We ordered the steamed buns and a variety of rolls. The buns were such a neat item and would definitely come back for them! The rolls were good as well, but nothing really wow'ed us. The service was pretty slow, but they were very apologetic saying that they were short staffed as well as extremely busy.
I was excited to go to Chiba based on other reviews and the menu, but sadly it didn't meet our expectations. For the price, I expected more. The sushi rolls were good, not great, and the apps (crawfish gyoza and duck spring roll) were just ok. I will not be coming back.
I have been several times. It was always great and just keeps getting better. Super fresh fish - the king salmon is incredible, so tasty. The hot and sour Tom Yum soup is wonderful. The cucumber and seaweed salad is best I have ever had. Gyoza are perfect. Solid bartender. Nice sake selections. Creative and delicious rolls. Not cheap but worth it for the freshness. Excellent service. Keith the owner is super.
Our server, Olivia, was great. She was very accommodating and personable. The food was amazing. The crawfish fried rice and the tempura braised short-ribs were delicious. We also liked that there was a pre-set menu option they had for NYE for a reasonable price. We will definitely be going back again!
Had Christmas dinner at Chiba and it was delicious! Yummy sushi and sashimi dishes and great selections on their menu. Portions on the smaller side but beautifully presented. A little pricey for every day but great when you want to splurge or for special occasions. They do have a happy hour menu that would save a few bucks but, of course, it was not available on Christmas (though the sign on the sidewalk outside on Christmas provided the happy hour menu so it was a little deceiving). Overall we really enjoyed Chiba. EVERYTHING we tried (and we tried A LOT of dishes ;-)) was delicious.
