The best sushi I’ve had. Ever. I’m not joking. Beautifully prepared and presented. Imaginative and playful flavors. And the fish...ohhh the fish. We will return.
The server was not that helpful. Octopus and ramen were pretty nice. Eel was not fresh enough& Their creative Tamago was basically bread which I hope that I would be informed when I made the order
Excellent all around
Great food & Justin was excellent helping pick food and sake.
Thank you to Cathy and the entire Team for taking care of us Saturday night. It felt like restaurants were BACK. Even with reduced seating, it still had great energy. The food and drinks were amazing as usual. This is the best sushi restaurant in Chicago and so glad that it's in our neighborhood!
My favorite Sushi restaurant so far.
Juno is one of my favorites in Lincoln Park. The service is always top notched. They make their own soy sauce in-house, which is absolutely delicious. I would recommend going to Juno any time of the week if you are looking for a high-end sushi joint that will absolutely exceed your expectations.
Best sushi spot on the Northside by far. Haven't had anything that I didn't like here. Price is a bit steep, but you get what you pay for.
Another superb dinner in all respects - quality of food and knowledgeable, efficient & friendly service. I'm always pleasantly surprised at their wide selection of fresh fish and they never seem to be out of stock. This really is a terrific restaurant !
Every dish was perfection and our service was on point. We took almost all of our servers recommendations and were not dissappinted. Can’t wait to go back.
Prior to this visit, I haven’t had Juno for several years. The quality of the sushi was as wonderful - if not even better - as I remembered! Our servers were personable and provided wonderful recommendations. I am looking forward to dining there again soon.
we LOVE Juno! Outstanding experience every time!
Juno keeps spirits high during the pandemic. Our food was, again, outstanding. The service still as jovial as ever.
It was a great time. Still the best restaurant in Chicago
Juno is my favorite sushi place in Chicago. I have been multiple times and the food is always sublime. That being said, I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday and I was less than impressed with the service. While the food was still superb, the wait staff was borderline rude and very quick to take dishes/glasses away without asking; even while food was still on the plate. When ordering drinks, our waiter jokingly suggested a long-island iced tea (which they don't have on the menu) as if to assume we wanted to be as intoxicated as possible which came across to us as rude and offensive. While I will definitely give Juno another shot, it was a little disappointing spending that much money on a romantic/special occasion with the service we received...
10/10 best sushi in the city! So flavorful, excellent service and knowledgeable wait staff!
The food and atmosphere was fantastic. Staff was all very friendly and not knowledgeable and extremely helpful when ordering food. Only issue is bang for your buck. I ordered 2 (16$ each) plates of sushi thinking I would receive 6 pieces each but only received 2 total pieces for each plate.
The food was excellent. Due to the snow storm and Covid, we were the only diners for most of our meal. The service was excellent. We had cocktails which were top notch and all of the recommended dishes from our service were delicious. We had our two teen children with us and our server, Justin, kindly recommended less adventurous dishes for them. Everyone enjoyed the meal. I would definitely recommend and I plan on returning.
Super high quality fish and great service. Juno is a favorite spot!
Only drawback - portions/prices. Mostly, this would be a one off experience. Came home & ate some wings.
Juno was once again absolutely superb. Despite being only re-opened since a few days for indoor dining they had a full selection of fresh fish. Service from Justin was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. All in all a wonderful experience. This really is a terrific restaurant.
best sushi & dining experience in Chi.
Absolutely amazing. Amazing server, amazing food. Everything was soo delicious and soo perfect. We ordered edamame, miso soup, charred corn, and all of the signature rolls. Everything was so yum!
Juno was again magnificent. Superbly presented food, beautifully presented and immaculately fresh. Excellent friendly service and fair value considering the high cost of the ingredients. Looking forward to our next visit soon...
The service was horrible this time and EXTREMELY unfriendly!!!
Sushi was high quality. Prob skip on the shoyu ramen though.
The best authentic Japanese sushi restaurant I've been to in Chicago.
Servers were very attentive and knowledgeable. Thanks!
Wow, just wow! Everything, from the entrance, to the seating, to the cocktails, to the food, to the service was impeccable! You HAVE to go!
It was amaze balls! Great nigaris.
The food and service was amazing. The crudo with truffle oil was delicious, as was the charred corn and the Juno King. Overall great experience and ambiance.
Best sashimi outside of west loop
This place exceeded all of my expectations. Everything was delicious and served quickly. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. They gave us excellent recommendations- the smoked hamachi & crudo were my absolute favorite apps & the lychee-tini was to die for. Chicago has a lot of good sushi spots but this has to be my new favorite!
Great food and ambience. Not a traditional sushi experience, but the menu and flavours were excellent. A good date restaurant.
One of my most favorite sushi restaurants in years!
Delicious, unique, and absolutely beautiful presentations. The service was my favorite part of the experience - such enthusiastic, warm people! Would definitely go back and try more items!
This is our "go-to" restaurant for premium quality sushi and overall great food, drinks, and service. The waitstaff is knowledgable, attentive, and friendly. The dining space is large enough to make families and dates feel equally as welcome. During the COVID pandemic, this is the first place we went back to as soon as we could. My family and have been coming here for years now and the experience is consistently outstanding. Highly recommended.
The best sushi experience in Chicago; this isn’t your average spot.
I definitely would go again, but make sure you have the means to enjoy - and eat beforehand because the portions are hilariously tiny.
Thought this place was going to be AMAZING, but the food was just good. Came here for my birthday and my moms, and we were underwhelmed. We didn’t get any birthday desserts or any celebratory things either, which is always a bit of a bummer when a nice establishment doesn’t do anything.
