We had to wait at least 45 minutes for our table even though we had a reservation. This is why the service was poor. Once we were seated the service was quality but not while we were waiting.

Waited 25 mins for our reservation. Spent $165 on our dinner. Asked to “pack up and leave” after 45 mins into our dinner. Disappointed on how restaurant handled their over bookings. Frequent diners in Gold Coast and River North.

Literally so good! In from out of town and this was a close walk from the Magnificant Mile and the hotel we were staying at. My friend and I would excitedly go back next time in Chicago!

Great place for sushi. Would not recommend if you don't like dim lighting.

Delicious sushi and a great server. The space is very tight so if you do not like to be right next to your neighbor don't dine here! The great server and food helped to outbalance the tight space.

Went for happy hour with a couple colleagues and really enjoyed the maki rolls. We thought we had ordered some spicy ones - Fire Dragon and something else but they weren’t spicy. With wasabi on them, they were very good. Had a couple of the veggie ones too - what an awesome selection! The tempura sweet potato maki and futo maki were both very tasty. We’ll definitely be back! Oh and the cocktails were yummy too :)

Service was great and they made special items for us since one was vegan and great options on the menu...vast! The noise level is loud but the cozy-ness dulls it. The staff made us feel welcome. Pricey on some “staples” but worth it! Great choice if you want to have a fun relaxing eve with friends or a loved on if you dont mind sitting close to other tables....although as close as we are to other tables we still felt privacy.

I went on a date (just our third in total) around 8pm on a Saturday and I really enjoyed the vibe of Friends Sushi. The food was good, the music was good and the ambiance was nice for talking. Cool spot!

Rose was an awesome server! The Jinmai Roll was the best roll I have ever tasted. We’re from out of town and make a point to have dinner at Friends every time we come to Chicago. It’s great!

My expectation on dining at Sushi on Rush were high. The restaurant was cozy and funky, with a good vibe. the menu promised interesting and innovative twists on sushi rolls. Unfortunately, the maki that I ordered turned out to be mostly rice, with the heralded combination of ingredients hard to find. Sushi on Rush promised far more than it delivered.

Great sushi, small intimate venue tucked away on Rush. I’d go back anytime!

Small modern chic restaurant. Good menu and choices. Friendly service. Food was very good (noticably better than other Japanese restaurants in area).
