What Insiders Are Saying
Momotaro is like a Japanese Discovery Zone. You may need to sample the menu a bit, but hit your stride and it's a great meal.
Momtaro is a fantastic place for sushi. The cuts were all visually pleasing an unsurprisingly delicious. Many of the cuts just fell apart in my mouth and the roll ingredient combinations were great compliments to one another. The place is pricey so unless you have deep pockets it's probably not a place you'd visit daily, but it's definitely worth it for special occasions. Also, the staff is extremely professional, working as a group effort to ensure the table is served for every minute need or desire. It was an overall pleasant experience.
Great sushi, unique options. Only thing I’ll say is the hot sake was super expensive. We didn’t think to ask how much because it’s usually not terrible but for a teapot of it we paid almost 50 dollars. Otherwise everything was reasonable!
Great food and service!!
Horrible service, overpriced. There are tons of better places that are reasonably priced.
Food was fantastic as always. Alexandria our server was excellent. Usually service is decent but she was excellent.
With a reservation made over a month prior, I was disappointed to have a table in the back of the space by the server station when there were a number of more intimate tables open the entire time we were there. The food and service were both good, but not as wow as our last visit here 5-6 months ago. And finally, the bill was steep considering my 21 year old son said, “It was good, but I’m still hungry.” So it was good but I walked out kind of deflated rather than giddy
Great food and service!
We had a great time!
Man... this place is just consistently excellent. Deann the manager is a rockstar and her passion for the food and beverage was contagious when she visited our table. I don’t remember our server’s name, but he was amazing as well. Our meal couldn’t have been better. Momotaro is worth what we paid x5
Freaking FANTASTIC! ALL of the staff deserves a raise! 10/5 ☆
Great sushi. Ochazuke was good but too salty for me. Loved the dessert!
The new menu is not as good as the previous.
Momotaro is one of our favorite restaurants, and owe try to dine there once a month. We order off the regular menu, because the variety of cold and hot dishes is amazing, and all the ones we have eaten are delicious. We loved the shiitake mushrooms on skewers, as well as the shishito peppers. The raw, marinated fish dishes were all refreshing. Service is consistently attentive, and our server Cherice did not disappoint! We left feeling refreshed, and comfortably full of clean, healthy, tasty food. Thank you for a very nice experience.
Amazing service and food! Thank you :)
Our server was so sweet and went into so much detail about the food, and gave us great recommendations. Dessert was incredible.
Fantastic service, great food, and such a treat!
A very nice special occasion dining experience. The service and ambiance were lovely but the food was good, not great.
The food was really tasty and inventive. There were several service breakdowns however. It took forever for someone to come over and take our drinks orders. The water guys had already visited us 6 times by then. There were plenty of staff around and seemingly available, but our server seemed to be responsible for the whole restaurant. A couple of times what was delivered to our table was different from what we ordered. Overall though, we enjoyed the experience. Our server was super cool and helpful. He just seemed overburdened.
Really excellent service. Knowledgable and attentive staff. Overall, excellent experience.
The food was underwhelming and expensive. After a$300 bill we left hungry.
why does sharing mean spilling three items four ways, "happy to add a fourth for an additional charge." Noise level was such we could not hear server or understand runners as items were presented. Server disappeared after dessert menus were presented and then described dessert as like a "McDonald's hand pie" Unfortunately a McDonald's hand pie taste better. Eating reheated pastry is not appealing. We've been multiple times but left saying we won't be back.
Sushi was good, but they brought out the dyed horseradish rather than the grated wasabi we ordered. Ike Mizudako was the highlight of the meal. High end sake should be served with a sake cup not just the serving sake bottle. Tokyo negi, which was on the menu, is not the same as scallions that were served. Miso soup was overpriced and was more of a clear mushroom soup, lacking the creamy miso. Ika to Sake had rubbery squid. Service was rushed with skewers taken off of our plates while we were still eating. Beautiful place to have drinks but food and service is not worth it.
Food quality was poor. Sushi rolls tasted old. Drinks were very average. Best part was actually the sliders.
Felt sick after eating and got sick in the bathroom, had chills, etc
Slow service with food - told it would take 30+ minutes for rolls and took longer...at 900PM. Took longer. Food was amazing. Very fast clearing tables.
Fantastic Food! Special flavors, outstanding service. Highly recommended.
i love this place
Food is deserving a Michelin star but service was not quite up to the food. Water was always filled and dishes were always cleared promptly. Server was pretty attentive at beginning of meal and then disappeared towards the end. Service wasn't bad. Actually it was pretty good, but when your food is that good the service should match.
We had a reservation for 8:15, but didn’t get seated until almost 9pm which is just an awful way to start. They said they would make up for it and take extra good care of us, but this wasn’t the case. The food was very good overall, but I was extremely disappointed in the service and professionalism.
Dropped in quality
You have the best fish ever! And I enjoyed the food! DON’T RUSH YOUR GUESTS. It was so odd when the food was still on our plates and somebody constantly showed up trying to clean the table. BE RESPECTFUL TO YOUR GUESTS AND LET THEM ENJOY THE DINNER INSTEAD OF COUNTING HOW MANY TIMES YOU WILL ROTATE A TABLE THROUGH THE NIGHT.
Like the Nigiri
Amazing food and cocktails, beautiful space! Everything served is a work of art
Incredible service and fun birthday! Our group did the omakase and everything was delicious. Our table was ready about 10 minutes late and the staff was very kind and made sure we still had an incredible experience and enjoyed ourselves. Definitely recommend!!
So thoughtful to change the menu so it said happy birthday to my sister and everyone said happy birthday to her!
Very good food. Service showed attention. There was a bit of a rush bringing the food to the table.
Beautiful restaurant in a trendy part of Chicago. Wonderful ambiance, friendly and helpful staff. Delicious food. Tried the oysters, grilled shiitakes, and two sushi rolls. Everything was perfect and incredibly delicious.
Always an exceptional meal. Service was spot on. Like the cocktail list
Great food and service!
