What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.7

Juno is a quality sushi spot in Lincoln Park. It's casual but pricy at the same time.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Way too expensive. I've had sushi all over the world, including Japan and this has been by far the worst experience I've had. Not that the fish, or any other dish for that matter, was bad - it was actually very fresh and savory - it is the price they charged for each nigiri and slice of sashimi that blew me away. Wait! didn't I know how much they were charging up front? Of course I did - it was right there on the menu. Surprise, surprise: the pieces were about half of any sushi of comparable price from any restaurant anywhere. In a nutshell, if you value your money go elsewhere for sushi.

Nigiri is fresh but smaller compared to other cheaper Japanese places. Be prep to spend over $60 to get full.

As always the food was fantastic but I was super disappointed with the service. We sat for about 15 minutes before being offered a menu or a cocktail. Once the cocktails were ordered we waited another 10 for them to arrive. Then, we had to ask for soy sauce when in the past it was provided at the start and waited for additional drinks to come.

Food was well prepared, but small portions for the cost. Nigiri came out with wasabi already added, and for some pieces it overpowered the fish. Miso soup had a few more vegetables added than an average soup, which I appreciate!

Portions were very small. Sashimi pieces traditionally should be bigger than nigiri, but that was certainly not the case. Nigiri rice broke apart when picking each piece up with chopsticks. No complementary mist soup. They charged me $3 for a small bowl of plain rice, something that should have automatically come with the sashimi. Waitress did not introduce herself and did not smile. After paying $150 fir two, we were still very hungry so we went to Matsuya on Clark (Japanese chefs and a much better experience).

Need to preface this with - I eat a lot of sushi at very nice places.
Had about 15 pieces of fish. (Pseudo Omakase)
Juno was just “OK”.
Quality of the fish could’ve been better.
Dressing the fish could’ve been a lot better.
I shouldn’t need to add anything to my fish when it gets served.
More than half the fish needed more soy.
Some of the accoutrements could’ve been portion better.
A bunch of garlic, yuzu, and ginger with wasabi didn’t work out well for some of the pieces.
Was served “Otoro” when it was barely chutoro quality.

Again - I eat a lot of sushi at very nice places so I am aware of what I eat.
Juno wasn’t a “disappointment”, but I expected more from them.

If you don’t eat at high end sushi places, Juno will be a good experience.

Well constructed line up of sashimi and nigiri offerings, in a quiet dining area with good service. Would highly recommend Juno to anyone looking for a reservation for under 4 people. Seeing what came off the line, this is not a restaurant to visit if you prefer creative rolls or heavy ingredients. Go here if you want quality fish without a lot of window dressing (menu also lists the origin of each fish, so you have a sense of what you're buying). The value is excellent and it's a big reason we keep coming back. Overall, excellent neighborhood option.

One of my favorite places to eat great sushi. The service is always top notch and professional, yet warm, and the food is always fresh. As a gal who loved sushi before it became popular, I am very in tune with details such as the rice (the right firmness and level of vinegar flavor) and the cut on the fish that tops the rice. They get it right every time!

Juno is always an amazing experience when you’re looking for traditional style sushi with a slightly modern twist on some classics.

If you look for sauces or crazy complicated rolls, go somewhere else. This is a purist dream and the sushi chefs never fail to over deliver on high expectations!

Loved the food when I came years ago (before the fire). This time some items were great, others were ok. The food and quality are
Good but extremely overpriced. the reason the restaurant is not full on a Friday night is probably because of this. It’s a top rated restaurant and it was fairly empty. Lastly, unfortunately one of our ordered items were missed compeltlru, so that was a bummer at the end of our meal.
