As usual, my dinner at Naha was just perfect. The scallops with scented Vanilla bean, clementines, parsnip and oxalis was a very delicate and tasty opener. My Wagyu Beef Brisket with carrots, celery root, fingerling potatoes, scallions and potatoes puree was phenomenal.
The service was of the highest standard with great attention to detail. The waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. I highly recommend Naha!

Naha was fantastic! We arrived a little early and truly enjoyed sitting at the bar conversing with the mixologist. The drinks were heavenly and if you enjoy Purity vodka, they have it! We were seated at out table which gave us great views of both the restaurant and the street. Our wait persons were attentive and knowledgeable. We had delicious food and truly enjoyed every minute we spent at Naha. Anxious to return.

The service was fairly slow, and our server didn't offer any explanation. My clam starter had great flavor, but the clams were rubbery. My brisket entree was very good.

We found this disappointing. Cauliflower soup was quite salty. Alaskan cod was bland. Duck and deserts were good. In general, though the ambience was very nice, the food was unspectacular.

Naha was good, but with so many other great restaurants in Chicago, I don't think I would return a second time. Our waiter, Michael, was knowledgable and great at offering recommendations. The cocktails were excellent, but I felt that the food was slightly underwhelming for the price. We had a shitake and pasta starter in prosciutto that was big on flavor, but very small on portion. The salmon was well-prepared, but didn't see to have that Michelin Star quality I was expecting. Overall, the restaurant is clean and nice, but somehow feels a bit dated. That said, it has been in Chicago for close to two decades so they must be doing something right. The menu on their website is outdated as I assume they tend to switch up their entrees with the seasonal ingredients. Overall, not a bad bite per se, but a bit pricey without the "wow" factor for which I was hoping.

This was our second time dining at Naha, and this time it did not fail to impress. The first time we dined was for Chicago Restaurant Week 2016, and we left very satisfied but not overly impressed considering the star. This year (2018) was definitely better.

My SO and I each chose different courses so we were able to taste more. Every course we tried was a delight. I typically don't order oysters, but heard good things, so I ordered them. They definitely blew me away. The duck with foie gras was done to perfection, I finished the plate wishing it would never end. The steak was absolutely phenomenal. Perfectly tender, juicy, and flavorful. One of the best steaks I've ever had, including other Michelin Stars' and steakhouses' steaks. Typically we share a few bites, buy we each loved our entrees so much we were selfish and didn't want to share!

I really enjoyed each plating as well, everything was well placed and fit with the overall dish. Both the deserts we got were great too, not too overpowering.

Definitely will return to experience the regular menu.

It would be impossible to offer NAHA a proper review during restaurant week. They did a marvelous job of accommodating so many people who may not otherwise get to darken the door of the restaurant. They served about 300% more people than normal so of course some of the NAHA experience will be lost, but what an effort, what grace shown by the owners and staff. A million thanks for a fine meal and a great time.

We were delighted to snag an Open Table RSVP for the very popular Naha during restaurant week. Everything other than my husbands appetizer was very good. His crostini was basically burnt toast.

Came for the restaurant week lunch. All the dishes we tried are very tasty and special. Great service too. The only thing is that bread service for $4, it is a very small piece of garlic bread not special as the other dishes, other places would provide for free.

Naha is simply a wonderful place to dine. The food is uniformly excellent, the service is attentive but not overbearing and the atmosphere is peaceful. This was a Restaurant Week lunch, but I have dined at Naha at other times, and always leave thinking I have had one of my best meals ever.

Food was top shelf, wine recommendation even higher. Waiter was great, offered great explanations. However, no one asked to take our coats - its Chicago in February!!! You don't want a bunch of coats on the backs of chairs in a dining room; that is an easy trip hazard for the staff. Also, when served our food, it was a little surly for a restaurant of Naha's caliber

I have been to Naha’s several times and I have to say that this time was a real disappointment. Of the three courses for restaurant week, the first and the third were disappointing. They were flat without depth of flavor. Although my friend that had the Eyster‘s said they were good but they were simply oysters. The main course was absolutely fantastic. My friends and I each chose a different main course and all three were phenomenal. For dessert, the cheese course was good but it was a cheese course, the two sweet desserts that we ordered were presented beautifully but not particularly exciting or flavorful. We chose a bottle of wine from the restaurant week winelist. We asked the waiter which was the fullest body wine from the list as I was unfamiliar with two out of the four options and he recommended one. It ended up being highly acidic, lacking any depth, and more of a light to medium bodied wine. Had we known, we would’ve ordered from the regular wine list. We also asked for either olive oil or butter when they put the bread on the table and the waiter asked us if we had tried the bread yet. Apparently, he was not about to bring us olive oil or butter until after we tried it. It was a bit insulting. The man bussing the tables was one of the hardest working individuals I’ve seen in a long time and he was extremely polite and anticipated people’s needs not only at our table but at the other tables as well. On the other occasions this restaurant has excelled but I was incredibly surprised by both disappointing service and food this time around.

For a Michelin star restaurant this was rather disappointing. The biggest surprise was the service; it looked like they were short of staff. Cocktails came at the same time as the starter course.; The wine ordered almost with the main course. The table adjacent to us literally had their plates dumped in front of them.
Food was tasty - if a little under seasoned.

We went to Naha for our anniversary dinner in Restaurant week. The place is huge and the ambience is really lively. For starters, we had cauliflower soup and salad if house greens. The salad was refreshing and the soup was velvetty and delicious, roasted peanuts giving it the required crunchiness. I would definitely recommend the soup.
For our next course, we had the duck breast and alaskan cod. I absolutely loved the duck. It was cooked to perfection and the sauce was delicious. I could have had one more portion easily 😃. The fish was cooked well but i found it lacking both in presentation and taste.
For dessert we had oeuf a la neige and the ottoman custard. Of the two, I preferred the latter. The presentation was beautiful on the glass plate. The lemon cream provided a perfect contrast to the sweet custard and the caramalized tuile gave it the perfect crunch. Highly recommended. The oeuf a la neige was ok, i wouldn't go crazy for it though.
Overall, some dishes are amazing while some are just ok. Mind you the portions are small so you might find it a little overpriced.
