We go seated at a bad spot right next to the door while the whole restaurant was empty. The server was inexperienced and grabbed an edamame bean from the table with his bare hand and put it on the platter for us to consume. He also forgot about my drink which I had to remind him about. The food was good but the experience itself was subpar.

There was no attention made to that or offering of dessert. Both the signature and the maki rolls were very small for the price. The bottles of wine were overpriced- even on “half-off bottle” Monday’s. Instead the $10 corkage fee was more feasible. The entire restaurant was open and another table was sat in the booth right next to us. The meal was way too expensive and I would not recommend this restaurant in the future.

I’ve had better but the feel of the place plus interior plus service overall made it a great experience, would like to visit the place again sometime!

I forgot his name :( I asked if he could stagger the rolls that we ordered so that they didn’t come out at once and he did it perfectly on one of the busiest days of the year (v-day). The hot buns were amazing and we ended up ordering an extra roll because the sushi was so good. Highly recommend

I ordered safe because it was my first time there but next time I am trying new things. I can’t imagine ordering anything that tastes bad from here. Service was responsive and quick. Not the friendliest but didn’t bother me. Not trying to sit there and talk to server forever anyways, just used to friendlier servers that go over and beyond in this neighborhood. I will 100% recommend this place to others for sushi. Nice date night ambiance.

The service (Mack) was great; pretty much what you would ask for: knew the menu, made recs, and wasn't intrusive. The food was incredible. Lots of options for all foodies (we're vegetarian and had plenty of choices). The drinks were spot on and it was a great vibe for a Fri. night dinner. You should try it soon!

This might be a bit harsh, but I can break it down for you. It was a rainy Saturday at about 6:15, the place was only a quarter full. Our server came back literally every 2-3 minutes. I'm talking beyond ANNOYING. As if they needed the table for people waiting!? There was still 2 pieces of sushi on a plate and we had only been there for about 15 minutes, and one of the servers asked if she could clear the plate. No, you cannot take away the food we are still eating. We were getting interrupted so much, I asked if we could please just have about 10 minutes uninterrupted, we had our food our drinks, we were 100% good-there was no literal reason to check on us or interrupt us, and at the this point the restaurant was only half full. I wouldn't be going out of my way to write a review if it wasn't incessantly annoying. The sushi was B quality, the bao was pretty tasty, but the experience was just awful. I left them a comment card (since they gave us one with our check) and I thought maybe someone would come out after they gave us our credit cards back that maybe they would say something, but nope! There's better sushi places in Wicker Park

Was slightly confused by the early 2000’s music that was playing though? It was pretty empty and the loud jarring pop music felt bizarre contrasting the cozy romantic vibes of the place.

Mushrooms on the grill we're tasty. Wine list was small. Overall a pretty good value. Restaurant was crazy loud and overstimulating. Lots of TV's and music was loud (great 80's and 90's tracks, for what it's worth). Fun place for a bigger group. Not a place to go if you want any chance of a conversation.

Because of the unique curvature of the ceiling, the acoustics were amplified. The music was way too loud for a restaurant. And the choice in music was much to be desired especially for a sushi restaurant. So with loud music comes loud conversations which in turn made it difficult to talk to person across the table. The food was just okay there are a lot of offerings and a bit higher price point. I don’t mind spending more for good sushi but there was nothing special that would bring us back. I’m not saying to stay away-different strokes for different folks.
