Fantastic sushi, ambiance, and our server was excellent. Everyone was attentive, filling water, clearing empty dishes. Bring new plates and silverware for our next course.
We had such a fun time with delicious food and drinks. We ordered the Ika salad, Nabu and Crabby Tuna. Then we had some fresh tuna that was so good! Can’t wait to get back.
First time visitors. We had a nice meal and would recommend.
We had a wonderful meal! My Chilean Sea Bass was amazing!
Apparently the sushi chefs walked off the job at the start of the dinner service and so as a result we were not able to order most of the things on the menu. I certainly understand that things like this happen but I would have expected someone from management to apologize or visit the table to explain or something. But we were told nothing and it seemed like no one cared. I was disappointed. I live nearby and go to Nabuki frequently. I think it is one of the best sushi restaurants in all of Chicago. But that is not how a business should treat its customers.
Our favorite restaurant! Food is always amazing!
A good Japanese restaurant to visit. Friendly service, and suggestions for drinks and food. Enjoyed the appetizers- edamame, peppers and cauliflower tempora and noodles for entree.
Great food and service!
The BEST!!! 💕♥️
We love Nabuki and have always enjoyed their food and drinks. During Covid they seem to have acquired the space next door plus outdoor dining and this seemed to really slow down service the night we were there. Our server was great and really hustling but it was apparent he had more tables than one waiter could handle. The table next to us asked for his appetizer a few times and finally asked for it to be just taken off his bill. Hopefully they get the kinks worked out with their expansion because it is obvious they are well loved and deservedly so.
Outdoor service was slower
We had a reservation at 7pm and didn’t get acknowledged by our server until 7:50pm. They close at 9pm. At that point we put in our drink order and all food including apps. Which meant everything can at once. No spacing of meals.
Food is always good!
Wonderful food and service. Inside dining room very loud - hard to have a conversation - but other than that, we really enjoyed the meal.
Love this place. Food is great! Service was a little slow that day but I’ve been before and everything is usually great!
We went to nabuki last night for our anniversary and had an amazing time! Food was delicious & the service from our waiter named Brian was outstanding :) we’ll definitely be back and will request to sit in his section!
Our server was. On-existent throughout the night. We waited for a good 25 minutes before he even showed up to take a drink order. Once we placed our food order (skirt steak, How we Roll, Red Devil) it took an extremely long time to receive it. When it arrived steak was good but cold. And only one sushi roll arrived. When I asked about the second one, he seemed surprised. A while later the second roll arrived. Unfortunately it was not the roll I ordered. I waited a very long time for our server to return and finally had to ask the excellent server servicing the table next to ours to get our server. When our server finally arrived, he took the roll back. It took a crazy long time to get the actual roll I ordered (How We Roll). Of course my husband had long since finished his dinner at least 30 minutes prior. Several times we had to ask the server servicing the table next to us to get our server to get drink refills and pick up our check. Our reservations were at 8:30 and dinner took 2 HOURS (!!!) due to our nonexistent server. I LOVE Nabuki and have been regularly going since it opened. By the time our dinner arrived there were a total
Of 6 tables full outside.
So it is not like the restaurant was busy. Could not have been more disappointed. It will be a while before I return. Just not a pleasant experience to spend two hours begging for drink refills and our order to arrive cold - and incorrect.
Brian was our waiter. He is really great. He pays attention to detail, allergies, foods we especially like. And the quality of the food is excellent
Excellent sushi as always!!
We were seated outdoors as requested. The food was delicious and service impeccable. This is a neighborhood gem!
The new expanded area is great! We enjoyed a great bottle of wine! Loved the tuna! Tried the Dragon roll, Stanley Cup and the Nabu...yummy
The food is always spectacular. My problem is the noise level.
Jezelle is the best server. Very attentive and very thorough!
Food was great - as always. Ambiance, not so much. Indoors is loud and not very attractive. We were squeezed between three other tables in a back area ( two were very large loud parties of 8) almost cafeteria style. Not great. It was just dinner out for us so not that big a deal but if I had been hosting friends or business associates I'd have been embarrassed.
So excited to finally get out. Food was mediocre, the past few times with takeout from there we were slightly disappointed too. Not sure if food quality has gone down but it doesn't taste as good as it used to.
Our go-to place for sushi. There is no better place! However, this visit was surprising in our initial interaction with the three (3) hosts, upon our arrival: rude, very impersonable and either need to be re-trained or hire new hosts!
Absolutely delicious! Definitely will be back.
Overcrowded, incredibly loud, slow service...The food however made up for it.
Service was fantastic and food was so delicious. We celebrated my daughters birthday and the server comped dessert. I will be a regular.
I came with a friend on Thursday night. While the staff is excellent as is the food, the noise level is rather loud. It makes it hard to carry on a conversation. I will go back as I do love Nabuki, I just might go at a less busy time.
This is our 3rd time to the restaurant as we live in Arizona and dine when we visit our son in college. It was nice to see the restaurant so busy and Brian B. made the dining experience wonderful. He offered great suggestions and we enjoyed all the food. Thank you ;)
Brian waited on us and made our dining experience a party!
Love the sushi and the vibe! Favorite place for sushi, but so hard to get a reservation!
Great menu and high quality ingredients. Great drink menu too.
Love this place!
Haven’t been back in a few years but the food is as I remember it. Consistently great! Server was phenomenal I wish I remembered her name but she made sure that we were taken care of and when asking about items that weren’t in their covid menu she was accommodating.
Their sushi was delicious and service was great.
Always great food and service! Thank you
Really great food, fast service and a fun atmosphere. It took us a while to try this place after moving here, but we will be back for sure.
