An incredible evening of superb food. Each piece was beautifully presented and the flavors were amazing. Spanning subtle to deeply engaging, the meal progressed at a comfortable pace, with only simple guidance. We were introduced to two fantastic sakes to pair with our meal. It was in the end a worthwhile adventure, and I felt the price was commensurate with the experience we had. I look forward to another visit. And the chef is deserving indeed of his Michelin star, announced the afternoon after making our reservation. Bravo!

The sushi was absolutely incredible, and we’ve had some of the best in Japan and on the West Coast. The setting is fun—Chef Park puts on a great show and the fellow diners at the tiny sushi bar were friendly and appreciative. If you like sushi, you’ll love Omakase Yume.

Every course was amazing, and chef was super helpful and insightful. Any time we had questions, he answered them fully and then explained even more than we originally asked. We're thinking next time we go out even for normal sushi that we should switch to nigiri after this experience.

This place deserves the full 5 stars. Omakase Yume was so delicious and just felt so special from start to finish. Every bite of fish was fresh and tasty, and from the minute you sit down you just feel an overwhelming sense of hospitality and care that goes into the entire experience. Couldn’t have been more pleased.

Best Edo style sushi I've had in the US. The chef was great. Just like being in Japan! The fish were divine. Eyes were closed while experiencing such delicacies. Will go back.

For the price, there are much better omakase options in Chicago. The alcohol selection is limited and priced fairly high. The fish is not as impressive as other places; better toro can be obtained. Many of the fish I was looking forward to see underwhelming but fortunately those I didn’t expect much of, turned out better than expected.

For those looking to have an omakase dinner, I’d suggest looking elsewhere.

Omakase Yume might be a good place for newbies to this style of sushi. It's an introduction to the genre that won't ruffle feathers. However, to an omakase veteran, this place is decidedly average. The flavors of the fish are all masked by the same, smoky soy sauce infusion. Every piece tasted very similar to the next. The chef was efficient, and the water filling service was rapid and unobtrusive. The setting was nice and intimate--only 8 spots.

The restaurant did not honor a substitution request--at this price point, they should be able to substitute a single item on request. That seemed a bit oddly inflexible and not in keeping with the best customer experience.

It was definitely not worth the price tag. I was disappointed that I have had a better-tasting omakase in St. Petersburg--surely, Chicago should best Southwest Florida in this regard. I wouldn't come here again.

Chef Park imports fish and ingredients of the highest quality from Japan and creates an Omakase menu that is an absolute masterpiece. By far the best, most original sushi experience in Chicago. Upon entering the restaurant you are immediately teleported to Tokyo. My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon in Japan and Omakase Yume brought many delightful nostalgic memories back with each bite.

Absolutely stunning. The care and hospitality towards diners was exceptional from he very beginning. Personalized name plates in this small 8-seater sushi bar was a nice touch. The actual meal was a show in itself. While conversation is by no means discouraged, watching the chef prepare each course was honestly awe-inspiring and quieted almost everyone. The flavors were so well balanced and course selection so well thought out that the food was the main topic of conversation after each course. Each course seemed to build on the last course. It was an exceptional experience and it seemed everyone was equally impressed with the food, the presentation, and little details that made the meal worth its price. Would come back again in a heartbeat.

The food is absolutely amazing. For years, if I am craving for REAL sushi, I have to fly to Japan. There are usually too many ingredients in one roll and I really can’t taste the fish itself. Yume provides high quality fish options and you really can enjoy the true tastes. Also, the rice is cooked perfectly that I think is another key to high quality sushi.

Been to Kyoten, Takeya and Yume - Yume is the best value and the fish is the star - not the rice, vinegar or anything else. Have had omakase all over the world and Yume can stand with the best of them
