We had looked forward to NOMI as we used to go there for brunch which was always excellent when we visited my Dad.The restaurant has changed.The prices are still expensive,but the ambiance is gone.We felt we were eating in a cafeteria.No table cloths, no more elegance.When we asked why it had changed,we were told that after the recession they made the restaurant “more approachable”.We can understand it,but the prices don’t reflect an approachable restaurant.We have no objection to paying a Chicago price for a great meal,but I expect a special place.I realize that this sounds snobbish,but there are so many great restaurants in Chicago “why not”.The Service was great no complaints.The food was very good,but as I said you can have a great meal at other restaurants that make you feel special.

Food and drinks priced a little high. Not that the food is not good but you can get better tasting elsewhere for similar price. This is my second time at Nomi actually and this time because of the quality of service i was a little disappointed. Just took forever to get drinks and food and it wasnt that busy. On a hot day can be frustrating. Still worth going to if you've never been

We reserved on open table and were able to receive window seating which we really appreciated despite the short notice.
The dining room was grand, clean and pretty calm for a Friday summer night.
Service was more than excellent! Waiter was very familiar with the menu and was able to guide us in choosing our entrees despite our food restrictions.
Staff checked in with us multiple times during our meal including the manager who was very welcoming and courteous.
I especially enjoyed the raspberry ginger root beer, a refreshing mocktail to enjoy during the summer heat and the smoked salmon beignets were scrumptious.
I think the sushi options could use some updating although their sushi is the best you can get in Chicago.
Will definitely visit again!

I had been there three times within 8 days. The first two, were excellent. Food excellent and service excellent. This last time, it wasn't even busy, but the service was very slow. There were a lot of servers hanging around , but no one seemed to know who was taking care of who. When we asked where our food was, we were assured that it was on it's way. That same server brought a table to young women, a pastry for their "wait". We received no pastry or apology.

We have been here a number of times and sadly we had such a bad waitress sitting on the patio on a perfect night that our entire group felt the experience was overshadowed by a server who always seemed bothered and upset. On a fairly quiet night she was overwhelmed with few tables and took away from the evening. Sadly the other couple in our group had not been there before and won’t go back. Food is very good, portions are very small for what you pay.

We had dinner Saturday night with out of town friends and ate at the outdoors/patio area of NoMi. It was a beautiful night, the food and service were wonderful and it could not have been a better experience. Drinks were terrific, my wife's margarita was one of the best she's ever had. Sushi was fresh and perfectly served. I had the shrimp and avocado salad which was extremely flavorful and had perfect acidity to the dressing. We will be back soon!

A friend and I always go to NoMi in June for both of our birthdays as well as a few other times a year, especially in the summer when their rooftop outdoors area is open. This summer was no exception. I booked a week ahead on Open Table and confirmed. After spending nearly 140 dollars for lunch/drinks/tip I got an email from open table saying we were missed and I was admonished for being a no-show. When I called NoMi to correct, instead of "I'm sorry", I got a "did you check in with the hostesss?" in an accusatory manner. The food was exceptional if overpriced (they've increased their prices significantly), the service was quite good and the outside patio is a wonderful place to spend a summer afternoon. I was disappointed in how the restaurant responded to my phone call. And while the waiter was told and the reservations stated this was a birthday celebration no offer of an amuse bouche or a desert was made--certainly not a requirement, but a nice touch that they have offered in the past. Might opt for another place.

Marvelous from start to finish, from the friendly welcome to presentation of the check. Our waiter made a couple of suggestions as we looked over the menu, full of treats and surprises. We remember NoMi from years ago, when it was a much more formal (but not stuffy) restaurant, and nicer in some ways. But the new version has a contemporary feel that I expect younger customers like, and we did not feel at all out of place. Salmon beignets were lovely, delicately but distinctively flavored. The breast of duck and the Amish chicken could not have been bettered, both dishes coming with attention-getting touches (e.g., the pea puree, the walnut ash). It was hard to settle on a main course, there being so many to choose from. We loved the strawberry-rhubarb esquimaux and affotago, although, again, it was painful to have to choose. But what a nice problem to have. Service at all levels was quiet, unobtrusive, even charming. We left wondering why it had taken us so long to go back. We will make our next trip a lot sooner. The restaurant earns its lofty reputation. Dinner at NoMi is an event.

After not going to NoMI for years, I took my friends a couple of months ago and it was great, so I rebooked for Father’s Day. The food was good, but the service was really terrible. No water refills or requests to refresh drinks, no follow up from server, food took forever and there were very few people in the restaurant. I could go on...very disappointed

I came with a group of friends for my birthday and loved it! I had the halibut for the main course and it could arguably be the best fish dish I have ever had. The broth/sauce it came with was outstanding. My only complaint was the Gnomi drinks i ordered. I ordered 2 and didn’t even feel
Tipsy. To preface, I drink perhaps once or twice a month and weigh 115 lbs. In other words, two drinks should make me feel tipsy. It was delicious just not strong enough.

Sat outside on terrace. Only 3 sun umbrellas out and it was very sunny/. They still had the heat lamps out and I guess that was the shade! 7 bucks for an ice tea which you had to ask for a refill- we expected way better from a Park Hyatt. No plan to return.

It would have been excellent but no one informed me that the Menu at NoMI garden is different than at the indoor restaurant. Also, the wind was gusting at 15-20 mph which caused the table settings to be falling over.

It was a bit chilly when my wife and I dined. It looked like a little disorganization with orders as I got a burger with a salad when I didn’t order a salad it wasn’t until my wife saw someone with fries with their burger. We told the waiter and he was surprised that I didn’t get my fries. He got me some but we were almost done eating at that point. So like I said it was chilly, so we thought it should have been more heaters. It just didn’t seem right for some people to be comfortable and not all. We still liked the restaurant and probably would return.

The NOMI Kitchen on the 7th floor is elegant with a great view. Overall, the food is very good with varied options. The additional availability of very good Sushi besides the usual dinner appetizer and Entree items makes the place interesting and somewhat unusual. The noise level is generally making easy conversation possible which is a big plus.

Absolutely fabulous evening! We celebrated my husband’s birthday and they made the evening very special. The service was friendly and excellent. The meal was delicious - the halibut would melt in your mouth! The birthday dessert was a light mousse concoction that was a big hit. I can highly recommend the s’mores-ice cream dessert as well. All in all - a wonderful experience!!
