A group of friends and I have been going here for about 3 years and have always enjoyed the service and the food. I was EXTREMEMLY dissapointed the last time I was there due to the fact they didnt honor our reservations for being seated in the bar area. I made these reservations 2 weeks in advance and when we arrived were told there was nothing availbale in the bar area and sat us in a corner table directly behind the host counter right by the front door inside of the restaurant area where people comining into the restaurant kept bumping our chairs. We even asked if we would wait till something opened and were told it would be a very long wait. 15 minutes after being seated in the corner, a table in the bar area opened up and we asked to be seated there and we were told they couldnt do it. My friends are very tall and the bar area is more comfortable for them to sit. We have ALWAYS made reservations here to sit in the bar and have never had an issue before. And then to watch people who showed up after us being seated in the bar just made us feel like we didnt matter for some reason! The wait staff and food was exceprional which slightly made up for the host basically brushing us off and ignoring us.

Consistently the best sushi and service in all of Chicagoland. Worth the trip or just a walk down the street.

I made a reservation a week in advance. The hosts did not seat me a t a booth, they put us on a second table , by the door, cold and drafty. didn't expect to be seated by the door for a 5:30 reservation.

Normally, I love Nabuki. The food is always wonderful, but the service we experienced Wednesday night has me rethinking my allegiance to this place. Our server was rude. No greeting whatsoever just said, “what to you want to drink?” When he came to our table and completely ignored my 10 year old son, who wasn’t even given the chance to order. Twice, he literally walked away in the middle of our ordering. He practically threw the food down when it arrived. It was terrible service!

Our server seemed to be in a rush and terrible mood. Felt like we couldn’t ask questions and was annoyed when we did. He also appeared to yell at another server near our table. It was uncomfortable. It also took us over 20 min to get our drinks and we asked for the edamame to come out as an appetizer and it came out the same time as our food. Wine was very overpriced. The food was great!

While the food was tasty, the service was really poor. I think our waiter forgot about us for 20 minutes at 5:30 on a Friday night. Then when I got a bill for $120 for 3 sushi rolls and 3 drinks, I decided that I will never return to Nabuki. Ever. Too many good restaurant options to waste time with this place.

Service was very slow, took over two hours which is unusual. The shishito peppers were insanely hot despite what the server said, so beware. Otherwise the food was outstanding as always. An unusual off night.

It took 20 minutes to be sat at our table, despite arriving on time for our reservation. The restaurant doesn't really have space to sit and wait for your table, so we stood in the tiny space in front of the hostess desk getting bumped by everyone walking in and out. They tried to make up for it with free appetizers and drinks, which is nice and we appreciated. However, when our meal came out, my vegetarian meal had chicken in it.

Rude & inattentive waiter. Service was terrible. Food came out snail-pace slow and late, and didn't taste as fresh as it normally does. Management's response to concern was equally disappointing. In future, will try to avoid going there on a Friday night - the restaurant's busyness seems to impact quality of experience, not to mention, some waitstaff's attitudes.

Food was excellent. Didn't love where we were seated (front bar) because it seemed service was a little slow initially and it was loud. Didn't realize there was a back bar section since it wasn't offered (and was completely open) but like I said earlier the food was spectacular and next time we will just request the back.
