Great food and meticulous service. Happy that they were able to accommodate two more people for our reservation with very short notice. It does take a while for the food to come out, so be patient! But otherwise well worth it to wait for the delicious meal. The Naha platter of hot freshly baked cookies put a smile on everyone's face to close the meal on a happy note.
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.
Very classy restaurant. For any occasion really. Food made to perfection, and chocolate something dessert heaven in your mouth
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 The menu on their website is outdated as I assume they tend to switch up their entrees with the seasonal ingredients.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.
Amazing! Wonderful service and the knowledge level of our waiter was incredible
Unfortunately, I don't like the food at all... the bread is cold too...
restaurant week: oysters were great, steak was a little too fatty/rubbery on one side, dessert was fine, the complimentary dessert was actually great
I had high expectations, but experience proved to be disappointing.
From the appetizer to entree, there was a BIG gap in time. Other than that, all good.
Didn’t meet expectations. Reception lukewarm and halfhearted. Service very pushy, they rushed us through lunch. Food ok, not great. The Cod-Tempura was totally off.
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.
Rude host staff
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.
Went for Restaurant week lunch. Three courses for $22. Food was amazing and a real bargain
Visited 7 restaurant for Restaurant Week. Naha shined as the best of all seven.
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.
