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.
Great evening. Food was delicious if a little expensive
Had an amazing night out, went for a special date night and couldn't have been more happy with the food and service.
TLDR; Pretentious and overpriced.
The food was fine. Not outstanding.
The service was terrible. My guest and I did not feel welcomed. The server clearly confused our order, we watched as the server brought our order to the table next to us, returned the food to the sushi bar, and brought the same platter back to us 20 min later. The server also had a pungent body odor.
The tables were cramped.
Spend your money elsewhere.
Fantastic food, extensive knowledge of the menu, and great service.
Food is amazing! The steak waygu style filet mignon is the best in the city! A friend describes it as butter-beef - served 'sushi' style, pre-cut into bite size pieces. The sushi is super original and incredibly flavorful. A surprise favorite - the bacon and eggs skewer. Just trust me and try it.
The only watch out is that on a busy night, the service can be a little over-stretched.
While not budget friendly - if you are going to indulge, you won't do better than Momotaro.
This restaurant was great. The fish was so fresh. Highly recommend
We didn't enjoy our dinner only because there was too much soya in all the dishes we ordered. Cocktails were great as well the staff&ambience
Great first time At Momotaro. Our server James made the experience wonderful and the food selection was nice. I would say we were expecting a little more variety as it relates to flavor. I will be transparent in saying the street-fare inspired dishes were amazing and we look forward to trying more in the future.
We did the omekase; the waiter asked us what we wanted to spend and they created a lovely nigiri and maki experience for us. Everything was delicious except the squid, but I've never liked raw squid anywhere. Hint: the Marat gruner veltliner goes really well with sushi.
Food was great, but service wasn’t the best.
Even with a reservation, we waited over 30 minutes to be seated.
As it was a birthday, a relative sent a bottle of wine to us, which was scheduled earlier in the week. The server did not know the kind of wine nor did he recall who sent it to us. Not great...
Amazing for an anniversary
The food was exceptional as always. The staff could not have been nicer. I had told them the dinner was for my fiancé’s birthday and they really helped make it special.
Best Tuna in the world. Amazing.
The food is spectacular as well as the vibe. The noise grew louder as the evening progressed.
Fantastic food. Will definitely be back. Sushi was super fresh.
The food was good, but very expensive. You can get just as good, or even better sushi for cheaper. The restaurant has a fun and modern vibe, which is what I think you are paying for. I had a sesame cocktail, which tasted just like a normal mojito. The glass was full of chopped ice, which didn’t leave much room for the actual drink. For an appetizer, we had age dashi tofu, which came in a nice broth, but the actual tofu wasn’t as good as what I’m used to.
The sushi rice was good, which is vital in good sushi. Overall, I’m glad I tried it, but I probably won’t be back.
Best dining experience to date.
I heard really good things about this place but was not satisfied nor impressed with the food. The noise level was too loud.
Server was probably the best I’ve had in years
Fantastic dining experience
This place is amazing! The food is top notch and you feel like you're in Japan when you're dining there. I'm glad I went there while I was visitin Chicago.
They seated us at a table right by the door and every time it opened cold air blew in. Otherwise it was great
All of the dishes we ordered were outstanding, however the order and timing of the dishes as they were brought out was less than outstanding. There were large, irregular time gaps between dishes; the strip steak dish was too early in the sequence and the fried rice too late, etc. But again, the dishes were exceptional, just expected a bit more for the whole experience.
Sashimi is so fresh! Unagi don and crab legs are very delicious. Momotaro tartare is kinda mind blowing. The cuisines are slightly different from what I used to have in other Japanese restaurants and you can tell they made modifications and added combinations of other ingredients to truly bring out the flavor. The waiters are really friendly and patient, and they also give me a little introduction about the sushi. It’s a great experience and I would definitely come back again if I have the chance.
Good and drinks were excellent
Our servers once again made it awesome!
Starting with the service, it was amazing. Our waiter was very nice and helpful. She recommend several dishes when we asked for some guidance. We ordered many of the recommended and none disappointed. It was all delicious. The ambiance and place is very nice as well. Will definitely come back.
I love this place I think this is the best place to take a group of friends or a beautiful lady that you're trying to impress or just anybody in general who has class. The food the ambiance the drinks everything is on point lots of beautiful woman and beautiful people to look at. The menu was hard to read if you don't know what to get but the waitresses and waiters do a really good job explaining it to you and making you pick the right choice for your needs. This place is freaking amazing love it so much.
Great experience! Had a later reservation, and Christopher treated us like his first table of the night. Great recommendations, and even better service. The food was outstanding, I will definitely be back.
Everything about this place was superb. From
The food to the service. Would highly recommend.
Third time at Momotaro, and it never disappoints. The only really annoying thing is that even though we made reservations, we had to wait 20 minutes before our table was ready. This happened the previous two times as well. This may be the reason why we - despite excellent food - may not come back again.
Very poor service. Waiter was stretched too thin over several tables. Took over 45 minutes to get any sushi and when asked about delay we were told the sushi was being “hand crafted”. Overall not worth it
Great ambiance, and food was also good. Especially I like Uni nigiri :) but portion was too small.
Went to Momotaro for a date and got a huge four-top table near the door. The restaurant was empty since our reservation was at 6pm and it hadn't started to fill in yet, so there were plenty of cozier more intimate two-tops available. We eventually asked if we could sit at the bar. The food was fine. I will recommend the tomato tartare if you are vegan/vegetarian (or simply like to try new, different foods) because that was good, but the rest of the food and sushi was nothing special. The cocktails we had were nicely balanced and tasty, so that's a plus. Service was weird. Our waitress would be standing there and just take off when we were in mid-sentence asking a question or even in the middle of ordering. Probably saw her three times during our entire visit. Good thing my date was an awesome conversationalist and we had a lot of fun, but the restaurant itself gets a thumbs down. Just an honest review.
Their are dishes that are outstanding!
Their are dishes that had no taste.
The service is impeccable!
Restaurant beautiful, service pretty spot on, wine delicious; you offered 1/2 Glasses which is great but portions a bit small for price - I expected small but not that small
The staff at Momotaro made us feel very special when we were celebrating a big birthday. Personalized menus and a special treat, along with delicious cocktails and knowledgeable staff made for a wonderful evening!
