    The food was excellent. Portions were small and price was a little high but that’s what you get for sushi in a place like Hinsdale. The staff was excellent and things came out quickly. Would definitely go back.

    Love this place. We had an hour to eat. We got right in, had no rush to our service, ordered more than enough and we were out in an hour. We love this place for long relaxed dinners too! Best Sushi outside of the City!

    Food and service good. Noise level was high and will be a dealbreaker for some. At table conversation was strained. They need to something about the noise

    The food here is very, very good. Especially the non sushi plates for those non sushi eaters. Guys don’t be afraid to bring your date here. You don’t have to eat sushi. They have other offerings that are really good!

    Each meal at Nabuki is memorable. Edamame was perfectly prepared. House salad has delicious ginger dressing with bright flavors. I was skeptical about the sweet potato, but the Stanley Cup with with spicy shrimp and crab, mango, cilantro, avocado, sweet potato, topped with chili oil and unagi sauce is an amazing blend of flavors with just the right amount of heat. We also shared the Nabu which was delicious. Topped the meal off with a fabulous rich (but not too sweet) molten chocolate cake and quality vanilla ice cream. Also recommend the cucumber martini - refreshing and bursting with flavor. Enjoy!

    The food is great always 5 star! The service is hit or miss. This last time was MISS! I didn’t even want to leave a tip. I did but it was well below what I normally tip. Empty wine glasses, nigiri brought out about 20 minutes after we were done and ready to go. Very disappointing.

    While we had a superb server for this Saturday, we came for the fatty tuna (Otoro and Chutoro). We learned when ordering our entrees that their shipment did not come in and they were "out of these items" on Thursday. Are you kidding!!!!! We drove nearly an hour to dine and then zip, no fatty tuna here...choose something else. What...we are supposed to call to see if they have food. Forget that. Very sad, but most likely will never return.

    Did not experience the food. We were seated, noticed a glass was dirty, exchanged the glass, and the other glass on the table was abruptly removed by a waiter. Waiter returned with two filled water glasses without any acknowledgement. Came back, took our drink and appetizer order, returned with the wine and proceeded to slide one glass across the table. The other glass was spilled by the waiter on the chair, splashing our pants, and again no acknowledgement or apology. We offered to pay for the wine, but we were done at that point. Oddest interaction ever at a restaurant and unfortunate that we were not able to try the food. When your “before” customer service is that poor, not even interested in trying the product.

    We enjoy the food and the service which normally should be a recipe for great reviews and repeat visits. However, we’ve been here more than a few times and have preferences in regards to seating. Unfortunately our seating requests are never honored since tables are held for other guests hours in advance of their actual reservations. We recently left disgusted after trying to enjoy our last drink upon closing our tab… while enjoying our drink we were asked to move tables although the restaurant was half empty since another party wanted our table. Pre-pandemic we would have written them off forever. However several of our favorite places have either closed or lost their edge since the Pandemic. Because of this we are willing to give them one last shot at our business before writing them off for good.

    Sake was little bit pricey and individual shots of sake were not available. A 300 ml bottle at $42 is pricey. Service was good, celebrated my birthday with Nabuki’s dessert. Thanks.

    We ate outside on a beautiful night - so wonderful ambience and moderate street noise. The sushi, dragon roll and spicy tuna roll were made from the freshest fish! The wine was overpriced but the meal price was reasonable.
