Naha Ratings and Reviews
We hadn't been to Naha for a while but it proved once again to be an excellent choice for a dinner with some guests from out of town. Everyone was quite complimentary of the starters and the entrees. My wife felt the duck entree was one of the best duck preparations she ever had.
I was not impressed with the food or service. The appetizer scallops were decent but not outstanding as would be expected for such a small portion at such a high price. The main course pheasant was dry and overdone. Our waiter was rushed and impatient each time he came to the table and didn't once check on us between appetizers and bringing us the dessert menu (other servers brought the food and refilled the water).
I am glad we went to NaHa. However this is a total foodie experience. People looking for something other than foodie would be wise to skip this one and avoid paying the premium price that Na Ha commands. Our meal was okay but we had a hard time finding something on the menu. Not a good fit for us.
Three of the four of us were very happy with our choices, but one appetizer, a pepper soup, did not please the fourth in our group. Quail and walleye entrees were excellent. The expresso/chocolate ice cream was disappointing.
Overall, it's a fine restaurant, but not as outstanding as we had hoped and expected.
Naha used to be one of our favorite restaurants. So disappointed this last visit. Food was average at best. We sent back the risotto no flavor. halibet just ok. But for $48 should have been fabulous and was only average. Not even all that hot either. Service has slipped to. Had to ask for water on more than one occasion. Saw the chef at the bar when we left so we know that hasn't changed but overall a big disappointment.
The food was good but not delicious. Certainly there are much better restaurants in the city with more wallet friendly prices. (Lula, giant, Mindy’s). The ambiance was refined and romantic. Our server was friendly but seemed inexperienced. I wouldn’t got back.
The restaurant feels somewhat like it's in a hotel lobby; not an intimate space. The service was fine but not noteworthy. Appetizer descriptions were interesting and made good use of seasonal ingredients, but flavors were not outstanding. The exception were the scallops, which were delicious. Burrata was fine but not spectacular. The chicken main was very good, the quail OK. Overall we were neither impressed nor disappointed, but at this price level we had hoped to be wowed. There are so many dining spectacular options in Chicago, no need to repeat.
Fresh linen tablecloths were ironed when placed on the tables! Careful attention to detail. Fine service and friendly staff. When the host was assisting others, one of the servers greeted us so that there would be no unnecessary wait.
Oh, yes, and the food was wonderful. Creative combinations beautifully presented.
We've been to Naha many times before, always on a special occasion and have never been disappointed.
Evan was our waiter and was most attentive without being bothersome. I ordered the scallops as a starter which I highly recommend, juicy and very flavorful. My wife had the Greek salad which she said was very delicious. We ordered steaks ( I the sirloin steak "frites" and my wife the rib eye of beef ) both of which were done to perfection. For dessert we ordered the walnut baklava and the spring english trifle which should not be passed up! Even if you're full, order a dessert!
We love Naha because the menu is so creative and ever changing with the seasons and the service is exceptional.
4 of us went for a birthday dinner. Service was very relaxed, but we were not in a rush. The food was beautifully presented and tasty. There are a variety of breads and good butter brought at the beginning of the meal without asking. Our Rose was delicious. Having said all of that, I felt the salmon was very overpriced, albeit well prepared. Really my only gripe was with the valet service. I got my car only to discover the seat had been changed and the radio was on a station I do not listen to. I called the restaurant right after I left, and I was told a manager would call me. I got no call.
Selecting a restaurant for a weekend visit to Chicago is difficult task with so many terrific options to choose from. NaHa not only meet but exceeded our expectations. Lovely setting and an excellent staff. The food was excellent in ever way. While our table choose many items , we found the Halibut and Quail dishes to be the most notable. We would highly recommend a visit when in Chicago.
The food was beautifully presented and equally delicious, with wonderfully fresh and seasonal ingredients. The soft shell crab appetizer is a must, and could easily be eaten as a main cause. The ribeye steaks were cooked to perfection and well marbled, and the quail and pot belly entree was unique and flavorful!
This is a place I've been meaning to dine at for years, and now I can kick myself for waiting so long. Ugh! This was a unique and lovely meal. The farm-fresh corn soup and beet salad were ordered with the intent to share... but were so delicious that we forgot (or that's the story we're sticking with). Best scallops of my life. Period. The steak was perfectly-cooked, full of flavor, and smartly paired with crispy onions and frites. Lovely wine choices and a beautiful, elegant dining environment pushed this spot into 'favorite' status. We won't miss stopping here again when we return to the city.
It was a fantastic menu. The only problem was deciding what to get. So we decided to share several items. The Foie Gras was memorable. I actually had to talk one of my guests into trying it, but once she did I was lucky to get another bite. The barratta was good, but not memorable. We had the pork chop and the ribeye and the duck. They were both delicious, and outrageously large portions. Nothing came with a side except. The crispy skin on the duck was flavorful. The pork chop was very good, and the steak was delicious and perfectly done to the rarer side we requested. The desserts were also yummy. There was this carmel crème with the chocolate dish. It tasted great, but it took a second to wrap my head around the texture. The baklava was one of the lightest I've had. Not cheap, but fairly priced. If you don't go overboard like we did you could have a great meal for a good value.
