my first time at PL8 and will definitely go again! food was fresh and awesome! great selection for small and large plates!
Usually GREAT! This last visit lacked attentiveness. Maybe they were understaffed...we’ll go back.
Making a reservation for a Saturday night meant nothing. When we arrived at our reservation time, they had no tables available and we were told to wait. Seriously, why take reservations?There is nowhere to wait comfortably.....the limited available space was overcrowded and cramped. The wait staff was sorely understaffed for such a busy time. Waited far too long for basics such as water refills. This restaurant is much more pleasant to go for lunch or for a weeknight dinner. Will not be coming here on a busy Friday or Saturday night again......
Only one bartender to handle every table and the bar patrons. Sat at the bar for 30 minutes before the bartender even looked me in the eye....never got a drink. Had a reservation and was on time. My table was 30 minutes late, hence sitting at the bar for 30 minutes with no drink. Waited at the table for 15 minutes before a server came to the table...too bad, wanted to like this place.
Consistently Great ...
very good menu variety and interesting special
Food is always good but the place needs a good cleaning
Patrick was our server and he was great!!! The food was great too
Loved the Biltmore sushi combo platter appetizer, and the dry beef stir fry was delicious. A very nice setting for special occasions and romantic dinners with a lively vibe.
730 reservations. Seated at 750. 10 more minutes until acknowledged at our table by a server.
Disorganized, slow, cold appetizer, no napkins/silverware until asked for.
Food was nothing special. Disappointed.
First and last time here.
As always, pl8 is great. Great sushi and Chinese with flair.
This was our second time at Pl8. We had a great time and shared many different dishes. the food and service were both great. So many choices from sushi to traditional dishes. The only reason for a 4 star overall rating was that we were sat right next to the kitchen door which was a little distracting. Regardless, we will return again.
First time at Pl8. Server was very attentive and helpful. Dim sum was good but next time will order it steamed so more tender. The shrimp Basel dish was very tasty and interesting; lots of raw red onion. Very fresh tasting. Must like cilantro. The chicken dish was very good and more traditional. Chicken fried rice was Ok. Had lots of left overs of everything. The wine was good but very expensive. Desserts are from local bakeries and the lemon one is excellent. Nice evening out. Our bill came to $96 before tip. Will go again.
Wonderful service! The menu is pretty big and our server helped us pick through to find the best! Portions are somewhat small for the price, but the taste is on point for everything! Great for groups of all sizes. Will be back soon to make my way through the rest of the menu..
Wonderful Asian options on PL8's interesting menu, and a fabulous selection of specialty drinks, too. Make a reservation, as it gets super crowded on weekends.
My husband and I come to Pl8 frequently and even bring our young kids here on occasion. We are never disappointed by the food, drinks, atmosphere and the service. Great sushi menu and really unique rolls- we love the rolls that use the black rice— SO good!!
The only thing that kept me from giving a 5 star is the hostess. I am a super friendly person and always greet people with a warm smile. I tell ya- there is this particular hostess who seems so annoyed at the world in general. I have come in with a reservation, without a reservation, with my kids, with just my husband, with friends and lots of times for take out. This girl is SO rude always! For no reason. She has a look of contempt on her face before you’ve made it to the hostess stand. Other than her, Pl8 is great!!!
it was ok. some of the food was REALLY salty. 6oz of wine was $9??!?!!? are you serious? I can get a long Island Ice tea at Breakers ni Crystal Lake for less than that!!!!!!!!!!!!!.. veggies in fried rice were HUGE and no knife was provided. service was a bit poor.. I waited a LONG time for a second drink. she was more interested in new customers than us. Very nice when talking to us.. but un-attentive. didn't like the LED lights over us.. too bright. glad we tried it.. but probably won't be back.
We tried some favorites and dared to try new items... all were amazing!
Pl8 always has excellent foid and service. They recently added a few things to their main menu and the specials are ALWAYS something we look forward to.
Food was really good but service could be better. We had to request water refills, drinks and waitress wasn't as attentive. It wasn't very busy either. However, the food was delicious and ambiance was great. Would recommend and would go again.
Our meals were fantastic. Great presentation, fresh, and flavorful. We have been to PL8 numerous times. Unfortunately, this time the wait staff were slow and forgetful. Took 20 minutes to get our initial drinks followed by repeat requests for other items and for the table to be cleared of appetizer dishes. Definitely an off night that changed my guests perception of the restaurant.
Super busy in NYE.
Upscale asian restaurant. Loved the food and atmosphere. We'll be eating there again!
Server was awesome. Had time. Good recommendations. Love the specialty rolls.
We have been here several times and this time was disappointing. Our waiter was also working the bar so he was not very attentive. I ordered the orange peel chicken and although plentiful was just average in the taste and presentation categories. My husband had the wide noodle dish and felt the same, just okay. Our friend had the 7 spices chicken and a tempura dish that they said was good. Will give it another try to see if it was just an off night.
First time here. Food was very good and service outstanding. Did find price for glass of wine a little high for suburbs. However, will be back.
Food was great! Portions were pretty big. Sushi was very good! Our waitress was helpful and prompt. Overall it was a great place and somewhere we will definitely visit again!
Always good for a good meal and fast pleasant service!!
Great service and food!
Excellent food and service.
Creative use of shipping cargo container!! Ambience is very warm and friendly. Lighting is low but not dark.
Our menus were rather old and tattered (well loved?) but they were clean so who cares?!! We only ate sushi. Patrick our server/bartender was EXCELLENT in offering rolls and describing them to a T.
Our rolls were presented beautifully and they tasted even better!
We will go back!!
The Sushi tasted and smelled as if it were stored out in the open compared to being stored on ice. The ingredients were absolutely not fresh.
Great experience overall. Food was hot & fresh. Service was great.
Food was delicious and service was great. A little loud when we first arrived which made it hard for us to hear each other. Would definitely go back.
I have been eating here for years. I love the food. Wild caught seafood, fresh ingredients and one of my favorite restaurants. I have brought many friends and they all love it. I eat here at least once a month.
Met a friend here for dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the great service and food. It was a Saturday night so I made reservations and we were seated as soon as we arrived.
It is a good rule of thumb to help the customers in front of you before a phone call. Not too many people at the restaurant and our table was set... Minus the tablecloth when everone else outside had one. Before the host sat us she took a phone call and someones order. We waited... Not a long time but enough time that everyone in my party noticed. Moral to the story... Help the customer in front of you first.
Good food at reasonable prices. But very noisy not good for conversation. Not sure what can be done about that.
We have few GOOD choices out here and this is one of the very best!

Pleasantly surprised - rolls, sushi well made and fresh, good selection. Missed Udon noodles, but many other choices.
