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
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..
we we're a table of 5 for a birthday celebration. one chair was dangerous and broken. It took almost 40 minutes after sitting down to get a drink. the wait staff then took another 20 minutes to take app order. many items we're not available on the drink menu when we asked for the saem drink. never checked in to see what we wanted for mains. we had to get up to find someone to help. another long wait for additional drinks. i used to love this place. we had a terrible experience for an expensive meal that didn't feel like one. i would not go back.
Among the best sushi we’ve ever had.
Amazing food, gorgeous presentation, friendly and super attentive staff. Will def come back again!
Did a little dine-around. Hit some of the self-acclaimed best sushi spots in town, and Momo sushi was wayyyyy better than the comp. Better sushi rice, better fish, better preparation. Only crushed nigiri in all of these spots, mind you. But quality was better, hands down. The bao bun double patty burger was a great way to be fat kid at a sushi restaurant, if you want the option. Love this spot will be back.
Perfect service, perfect food.
Had a great time catching up with a dear friend enjoying the most delicious sushi
Food is above average but service is about eat fast and the ambiance is for servers and staff to rush. They look frazzled and the experience and tone is one of “hurry up and eat customers.”
Chicago can do better than this . Living on old reputation. This place is ripe for others to over take it. Covid taught us all it’s about enjoying pace of eating and sharing time with friends and family . Not McDonald’s type fast eat and go service atmosphere.
Great service! Made her birthday special!! Thank you!!!!
So so so good! The food was good, the music, the ambience! Highly recommended
