First time to Nabuki. We sat outside which was probably a mistake because of the hot temps. The tent was shaded but no fans and no breeze. Our server was very attentive and even took back one of my drinks that was not right (no charge). Food was great! Will come back again but definitely sit inside where we saw it was really pretty.

Our waitress was good but the sending of the food from the kitchen was terrible. We ordered 5 things and at every sushi restaurant we have ever dined they bring them out one at a time and stagger the meal. Here they brought out 4 at the same time and the 5th a few minutes later. The table didn’t have enough room for it. It was one big mess. Also the restaurant (at least the bar area where they seated us) is very, very loud. I couldn’t hear my wife across the table from me on several occasions. It’s not loud from music but from voices. We like a lively restaurant but this was just full of noise. The food was excellent but the experience was not good.

Ate there tonight with my family and while the food was fantastic- it took almost 90 minutes to get our sushi. We went early with kids abs it was pretty empty when we got there so there wasn’t a reason for the long delay. We will go back and try it again since the food was so good

Food was great. Service was great. Would love to see quicker drink turnaround. I know it was a busy Saturday night, but it took 30 minutes to receive our first round of cocktails. Kind of a bummer, but everything was great overall. Thank you!

Thursday night double date. The food and cocktails were very, very good. I recommend the shrimp rolls and red devil / piccadilly rolls as well as the hibachi tarudo. The kitchen was slammed and wait staff was overwhelmed (skeleton crew) leading to significant delays, but they always responded to our requests and delivered with a smile. We will be going back.

Nabuki has lovely decor, except in the room in which we were seated. It was out of the way and completely sterile, lacking in style. The out of the way location made us somewhat invisible to the servers, which impacted the service. Also, the server was a bit careless and spilled soy sauce all over a member of our party. Although the food is exceptional, the service and ambience could be improved.

Very good food and service, but prices have really jumped up here in the past year. We will come less because of this.

We brought out of town business associates to Nabuki, both of whom are foodies. They absolutely loved the food and remarked it was one of the best that had experienced nationwide. Our server was knowledgable, fun and intuitive, understanding when we needed space to talk and when we needed attention. His recommendations were on point! Two of our party were vegetarian, and Nabuki easily accommodated them. This is an excellent treasure in the western suburbs - highly recommend.

Nabuki closes at 9pm, however, Open Table allows for reservations to be booked at 9pm.

The host (very rude) tried kicking us out after two hours even though it was a Monday night with plenty of empty tables. The waiter (who was amazing) was surprised when we mentioned this to him. We were just two girlfriends enjoying our first dinner together in over a year and enjoying the delicious food. Very weird.

Thia is one of my favorite new places for sushi. My favorite one was the Godzilla roll. I also ordered the seared scallops and where some of the best I ever had. Overall, the food was delicious and the service was excellent.

We never received our appetizer or one of our sushi rolls. Service was terrible. We were given a “discount” on our bill which still had the charge for the roll we didn’t receive on it. When pointed out, we were told that was why we got a discount. We were at the restaurant for just less than 2 hours which should have been sufficient time to deliver meals for a party of 3. The food we did receive was mostly good. We are regular customers. Very disappointed.

One of the best sushi spots in Chicagoland! Staff is friendly and attentive, especially Peter.

Latin infused sushi makes so much sense and is well executed. Great job team
