My favorite sushi place in Chicago. Amazing food and stuff. Loving the home-made special edition soy sauce, it adds a special elegant flavour to each fish. I recommend this place to everyone who loves sushi. Try this now and thanks me later!

Overpriced and average quality sushi. You are better off at any other nice Japanese restaurant.

Best meal in literally years. Grace’s guidance and the work the kitchen puts into every detail make this a world class experience.

Beyond Delicious. I wish there were more servings of each item but only because they were so delicious.

Exceptional service (thank you Grace) and quality product prepared with care! Super impressed with the sake selection and little nuances that separate Juno, like the jalapeño soy sauce offered, Rose colored sake by the glass and the kinmadai “golden eye snapper” — we’ll be back!

Sushi are all very thin and tiny comparing to any other Japanese sushi restaurants at the same price level, it is definitely not a match for others. I don’t know why this place’ s chef create a “new standard” for the sushi including sashimi and nigiri.

This was our second time eating at Juno and it was just as amazing as the first! While there are a lot of options for sushi in Chicago, Juno is absolutely the best! We’ve eaten at some of the top rated sushi restaurants in NYC, LA and SF, and also lived in Japan for two years. I would put Juno in my all time top 3 restaurants! Not only is the sushi so fresh and delicious, but the service is excellent...the waitstaff is always very friendly and attentive.
Highly recommend!!

I have been here three times now and each time I've been uber-impressed. From the food quality to the service, this place is a hidden gem. Far superior to your average (good) sushi place in Chicago.

Although good quality, the size of portions are so small. In Los Angeles you would get 2 big pieces of fish in an order of sushi. Not this place, you get one tiny little piece. Really not worth what we paid.

Nobody greeted us at the front when we arrived. Stood and waited 5 min for hostess to show up. Sushi quality was quite dismal -- boring, small maki rolls without a lot of flavor -- and overpriced. Saki came after we were done with our soup. The Miso soup was also very salty with very few mushrooms in it -- mainly liquid. Very disappointing.

Juno met all of our expectations for food and sushi experience. We had a little issue getting service at first (20 mins after we sat down), but once they realized what happened the waitress was very very good and apologized for the delay.

Would absolutely recommend them if you are looking for a unique experience.

One of our favorite restaurants in the city. We love everything. The cocktail list is great and fun way to set the mood for all that is to come. Don’t miss The King and The Queen.

We celebrated my son’s 16th birthday when we dined here last weekend. We decided to give it a try due to good reviews and it did not disappoint us. The ambiance is very nice. The service is superb. And the food was really great! It is pricey but on occasion like this, it is worth the splurge! We will definitely come back.

My companion and I were stunned at how minuscule the nigiri was. It almost seemed like a joke — “dollhouse food.” It would’ve been fine if the fish was exquisite, but it was only okay. The hamachi crudo was so minuscule it was almost laughable. We go to another sushi place, NIU, that is vastly less fashionable, but the hamachi crudo there is far fresher and more flavorful, and each piece is three or four times the size of Juno’s portions. We also didn’t like the way the waitress poured us a small amount of soy sauce, and provided no extra wasabi. The pretentious implication was that “our sushi is so delicious that it doesn’t need anything extra,” which would’ve been fine if it were true — but it wasn’t. Our waitress also condescendingly informed us that there was “a small dab of wasabi between the fish and the rice,” as if that was some sort of unique preparation! Lastly, fairly early on a Saturday night, they were out of what we wanted most, uni. And the green tea dessert was ridiculously skimpy. After spending far too much money for hardly any food, we were both starving, and had to buy some chicken tenders and curly fries at the movie theatre just to fill up.
