Sushi to Sashimi*
six pieces seasonal nigiri and five slices of seasonal sashimi
Chef's Seasonal Nigiri Selection*
spicy beef curry, scallion oroshi, black garlic oil
What an incredible experience. It was so busy but the staff did not show it. The entire meal was perfectly paced and everything we ordered was outstanding. The Wagyu strip was easily the best steak we’d ever had. Our server, Paul, was so attentive, kind, and knowledgeable; every recommendation he gave was thoughtful and fitting for the evening we’d envisioned. Will definitely be coming here again. I think it will be our go to for very special occasions. Thank you, Momotaro!
Our server Taylor was helpful picking out a wine and very informative about the menu. She got our sashimi chef’s special the way we wanted it by asking the chef to switch a couple of fish pieces for the ones we wanted Nice ambiance Will go back
Does not disappoint. One of the best in the city. Thank you Momotaro!
Best sushi that we have ever had. We tried some new things and enjoyed everything that we ordered.
We live in indiana and come to chicago once a year and never miss a dinner at momotaro
Great venue for all occasions. Atmosphere, service, food outstanding ...
It was an amazing experience. The food and ambiance was truly special.
I can’t imagine food can taste any better. Absolutely amazing.
Was an amazing experience! Very unique menu more like a tapas style Japanese food place with lots aid amazing small dishes.
Sophisticated menu with complex flavors; great sake selection!
Momotaro is perhaps one of the best Japanese restaurants I have ever been to. Everything on the menu is special. You close your eyes and fall into a world of different flavors. Truly outstanding. It is an expensive experience, but one that is totally worth it.
Phenomenal. Food is exquisite and perfectly paced. Taylor, our server, was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. I will be back very soon.
Paul was the best server! We try all his recommendation dishes and it was great
Top end nigiri, but expensive. Ambiance is nice, casual.
My companion and I overall had a lovely experience dining with Momotaro; however, their service was slightly under par. Our drinks took a long time to craft, despite being simple orders, and our Miso soup lagged 20 minutes behind our other apps due to issues with the kitchen. Every menu item we sampled was outstanding and the scallop dish especially was our favorite. One other small point of contention was the menu layout. It is very confusing to try and course out a meal without a lot of forethought as each category was vaguely labeled and apps are lumped in with mains under the same banner. We would definitely return and recommend this restaurant despite these few minor setbacks!
We flew from Houston Texas to celebrate our 8 year anniversary and chose this restaurant because of its reviews. When arrived and waiting what felt like 10 minutes, the waiter stopped by to say hi and ask if it was our first time. After answering “yes” he didn’t ask if we were celebrating anything and said he’ll be back to help us “navigate” through the menu he did not even bother to ask us what we wanted to drink. After another long wait, we’ve decided to flag him down to order ourselves. We ordered our drinks and food and he did not help us with the menu like he said. We felt ignored and didn’t think it was worth the price that we spent. $360 for 2 people!
The food was okay though, maybe because we selected on our own and without the help of our server.
Very good variety of dishes which were all fantastic; the seafood and sushi especially. We had a wonderful time and would definitely come back. The restaurant did get a little busy later in the evening, but it didn't get overly loud. The ambience overall was very clean and modern.
Fabulous and unique meal. Love this place. Great part of the neighborhood. Thank you.
Everything from the beginning to the end was perfect there wasn’t a single dish we didn’t like, we did chef selection till we couldn’t eat any more
Our absolute favourite restaurant in Chicago. Amazing food and great service.
The food and service was absolutely wonderful. The scallop and tako su were probably our favorite dishes, and the sushi rolls we had were excellent. The soba and nigirizushi were not really worth the prices on those. We also had the banoffee dessert, which was huge and more than enough for the two of us.
Amazing meal at one of my favorite restaurants!
Our dinner here was really good. The belly fat tuna was to die for. We had an amazing dinner and will definitely be back. Thank you!
Shared a special birthday dinner. Our server made us feel special and of course the food was, as always, spectacular.
Good, but not great. We’ve had sushi around the country and I would say this is good but when you factor in cost it is a bit overpriced. I’ve probably spent half to two thirds of what we spent here for same quality of food.
Great experience. Ate indoors, and there was a good guard between tables. We ate early to avoid crowds. Food was great. I was there with my 17-year-old son. Next time we'll focus on the sushi, which was extraordinary. The hot dishes were strong but not as mind-blowing.
We had a great time at Momotaro! The service was excellent and every dish we had was great.
The food was delicious! We had a great time! Restaurant employees were all friendly and knowledgeable.
Loved the food and the service is amazing
Excellent service and food was delicious!
Excellent Service and food! Very poor experience when you come with a baby and send you upstairs far away from everyone
Service was absolutely horrible. It was my girlfriend’s birthday and they couldn’t have done anything else to ruin it.
Nice ambience, great food and no stress with your table
The food was incredible—we loved everything that was served our way. My only regret was that we didn’t get to sit downstairs, as the ambiance there looked amazing. That being said, the service was impeccably knowledgeable, and the food was to die for. Would love to return soon to try other items on the menu!
The food is exceptional. The staff is so sweet. It was for my boyfriend birthday, so we got personalized menu. Also, they allowed me to dropped the cake at the restaurant earlier, so it’s completely surprise for him!
Celebrated a birthday and the food was amazing
The sushi is superb, and the lamb chops are to die for; likely the best I've ever eaten.
Service wasn’t great. Chef’s seasonal nigiri was not good.
They kept rushing us not even an hour into dining...there were a few open tables so I don’t know what the rush is..food’s okay.. nothing special.. won’t be coming back..
