Everything was delish
Juno was a recommendation from our friend. And they didn’t disappoint. The food was delicious and fresh. We really enjoyed every bite of it. Our server was very attentive and helpful, awesome staffs, special thanks to Eric for an excellent service.
Juno will be one of our “go-to” places to eat when we visit Chicago again.
The food is excellent, however, very expensive. Not sure I will return.
Always a lovely experience! Food is impeccable, service is great, and the atmosphere is beautiful. We’ll be back!
Food was excellent, high quality, very fresh, beautiful presentation.
Our waiter was awesome
Our waiter Grace was just outstanding! Food was perfect.
Another incredible experience at Juno. The nigiri is amazing and Aaron is the best waiter
This is a very good restaurant for Japanese traditional food. The wine list is very limited but the food is excellent.
They initially tried to seat us in the bar, which was unacceptable. I'm heavily tattooed and my partner has a youthful appearance. The 2 whiter appearing folks in line behind up got ushered right into the dining room. so I kind of felt like I was profiled as being poor or whatever. Our smoked sashimi dish was brought out to the wrong table and the cloche was removed then just put down on out table with a minor apology, major service faux pas. The woman who waited on us was a consummate professional in a sea of mediocrity. Still I spent close to 300$ and was a little let down by all the hiccups.
Absolutely Amazing experience. Luckily Chef BK Park himself was there and hand made all our rolls. A must visit place for all the sushi lovers. Highly highly recommended!!
AMAZING AMAZING!! Ask the waiter/waitress for recommendations
As with any restaurant owned by master sushi chef BK Park, Juno always delivers outstanding food quality and incredibly fresh fish. Juno is a personal neighborhood favorite.
This was an amazing surprise! I went with my best friend for her bday and we were both obsessed with the sushi. Be sure to try the fatty tuna!! I will definitely be back soon.
Great fish, and great service from a whole team of servers and staff. Not your average Sushi place. Upscale and maybe a little pricey for many, but the quality and service is there. Unique Signature small bite are a must have when ordering. Get at least one of the Smoked Fish choices...smoke infused under a glass dome just before presentation at your table. Family owned and they are right on top of things happening in the restaurant. A very well run establishment.
Juno provided painfully slow service - we waited over an HOUR for our food *after* ordering (the restaurant was not busy) - and they served quite mediocre sashimi that was obviously not particularly fresh. Our server and manager were actually quite rude in a very uncalled for manner. Instead of offering a free cocktail for the poor service, we received a lecture. Do not go here. Overpriced at best.
The service (Eddie was our waiter) was excellent - he was very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu and also very attentive and caring about an allergy at our table. The food was incredible - very fresh with inventive new flavors and presentation. A wonderful dinner!
Great food! Smaller portions than I’m used to, but the fish is flown in EVERY DAY FROM JAPAN!!
They don't do anything special for birthdays, not even an acknowledgement even when you have it on your reservation and tell the waiter. Overall food was good but capping off a birthday dinner with something would've been nice. And yes we ordered and paid for a dessert, did not expect something free, but a candle or any type of acknowledgement would be nice. Other restaurants at this level put your name on custom menus, or offer a candle on a dessert, or a scoop of ice cream or at least something.
Restaurant was great! Servers were nice. Food was excellent!
You can’t really tell from the pictures but the sashimi and nigiri fishes were paper thin! Though the taste is good and presentation is nice, not good value for what you’d pay.
The food was absolutely fantastic. Very expensive…the triple dollar sign should be four dollar signs haha! But if you’re looking for an A+ meal with A+ service, Juno is your place. Our waiter Patrick couldn’t have been better.
Our server made our experience outstanding!! If you are open to suggestions and a surprise you are in for a treat if you offer your server the opportunity to set you up with your own tasting menu essentially. Every single thing we ate was delicious and of the freshest and best quality. We will put Juno at the top of our Chicago restaurant list.
top notch sushi and great service. prices were high for a mediocre ambience but worth it for the high quality preparations.
Excellent service, great sushi. Front bar area is a bit crammed.
It was a very fun and enjoying, the food was exceptional and the service was amazing. The presentation was very nice.
The sushi was decent but nothing to go out of your way for. Service started off well but ended poorly when a busser was extremely rude to us. It is unfortunate as we were originally interested in going to Mako, but they were completely booked and recommended us to come try Juno. Sadly, we will not be coming back to Juno nor will we be coming to Mako.
All I can say is .....yummy! Best way to eat sushi. Incredible combinations of flavors including smoky flavoring.
A masterpiece! Unique place with an atmosphere, but the most important - food is just amazing,
So incredibly impressed with the quality of sushi and ambiance! Aaron did a wonderful job of passionately explaining the menu and choices to us while making sure that we were taken care of at all times. We cannot wait to return.
Good food, very expensive, apart from the food not a great experience
Incredible. We had a wonderful waitress that made the best recommendations. The Juno Queen was unbelievable. I could eat so many of those! Highly recommend the zuwaigani, so unreal good!
Service is very slow.
the quality of the fish is good but portions are tiny for the price you are paying.
we made a reservation well in advance for 2 people and was led to a small table in the corner ( when other groups of 2s had tables for 4 people) when asked if we can switch seats we were told all tables were booked when the whole time we were there, there were other empty tables all around
ok atmosphere but because its widely open, noise level get loud
not worth the $$$ for the size of the portion or the overall ambience.
Gone her for years good quality sushi
Our waiter was amazing and the food was incredible! I would definitely come back here time after time. The signature nigiri is definitely where it’s at, and the smoked nigiri was fabulous too!
Wonderful experience all around !!!
Best sushi dinner I've ever had outside of Tokyo.
Everything was perfect. Wish I could go back today.
