    Everything was extraordinary, from the moment the door opens to reveal the cozy, beautiful bar-kitchen to the last plate, the experience was magical. Top-notch cuisine, delicious sake and cocktails pairing, and a great service.

    This is my new favorite Chicago restaurant!!! I was so impressed by the meticulously prepared, creative dishes. The cocktail/sake pairing is a MUST. The service also blew me away; the omakase style made for such an intimate, friendly experience with not only the serving staff but also with the incredible chefs. Furthermore, it was the first time that my left-handedness has ever been addressed at restaurant. Love the attention to detail!

    This experience has definitely earned its reputation. Watching the staff prep the dishes in front of you definitely elevates the meal. The dishes progressed as the evening went on, in the best way. I had the cocktail/sake pairing while my wife had champagne. Both were excellent, and a couple of the cocktails were real showstoppers. Mariya Russell and the staff took lots of time to talk to the guests during the meal, which was a huge bonus. Also, of all the restaurants in Chicago, this had the best pescatarian substitute for Wagyu beef. I was not stuffed full at the end of the meal, but I did not leave hungry. We had a very small bite at Kumiko upstairs just before dining, which was a good move. Congratulations to the Kikko team on the Michelin Star! We are definitely coming back, and bringing friends.

    From minute we walked in the door, everything was exceptional - service, food, ambiance. Everything. Especially enjoyed being able to talk with the Michelin-starred chef as she prepared each item on the menu. Exceptionality often doesn't come cheaply, and it doesn't come cheaply at Kikko. Still, this is a fine choice for a special night out.

    Wow. This experience blew me away. Incredible food, prepared in a beautiful space, with a more laid-back experience than I've ever seen at a place this high-end. It's not a whole lot of food, so I left a bit hungry, but each dish was absolutely exquisite. I loved it, and would absolutely go back.

    We had a phenomenal experience at Kikko! The food was outstanding as was the ambience, and it was a very personal experience as you're in a room with 6 total dinner-goers and 3-4 staff members, including those preparing the food. They are extremely knowledgeable, attentive, and were happy to answer and and all questions during the meal! Additionally, everyone was quite nice and personable and we enjoying talking to the chefs and other staff members. I would highly recommend going here!

    Chef Russell's interpretation of traditional Japanese omakase was fantastic, and the comfort and ease with which she guides the intimate 8-seat counter at Kikko really makes for a great experience. We enjoyed the 7-course progression -- everything worked well as part of the theme, the flavors were great and creative, and there were some real stand-outs, especially in the nigiri courses and the agedashi tofu (handmade in-house!). If you are expecting a more traditional, sushi-heavy omakase, there are other places in Chicago that will probably fit the bill better, but I found Kikko to be a worthwhile experience. I knocked off one star in the Value category because I think for the price they could have included 1-2 more main courses...we didn't leave hungry but weren't super full either.

    Wow! This dinner is one of the most memorable dining experiences I have had. The counter space only holds 8 people and each of the 7 courses are prepared right in front of the guests by Chef Russell and her sous chef. The host made sure the guests had great conversation with each other and the chefs. Each course was excellent and the tofu dish lived up to the excellent reviews. This restaurant is highly recommended and worth a special trip to Chicago!

    A must-visit restaurant for any sushi lover. Several bites left me and my partner speechless—two of which I'd consider among the best bites of food I've ever had. Pair that with an exceptional drink menu and you have a meal you'll tell people about/recall often. Already planning a return trip.
