Took an hour and a half to get food. Consistently ignored by the servers. Sushi was okay but not worth spending half our night there. Patio was really cute though.

Food was mediocre, service was dreadful. Definitely won’t go back. Took 30 minutes for them to come to the table to ask if we needed water / drinks. They weren’t busy at all, not surprised.

This was for my 1-yr anniversary, and there were rats everywhere! People left and I didn’t want to leave without paying for the food. Absolutely distraught by this…

This was an amazing first time at Seadog Sushi. The food was delicious, service was pretty good (only complaint was we didn't get water refills). Great date night out. I plan to come back again!

Went to Seadog Sushi Bar for our 11year wedding anniversary. We booked after reading the Michelin rated advertisement and nice gallery. We arrived at 5:30 for our reservation and while the restaurant was relatively empty the one waitress was also serving as an attendant and dealing with take out. She seemed overwhelmed. Upon entering I noticed my shoes picked up the dirt from the unkept floor. The washroom had a garbage can that was rusted out and unsightly. The food was descent. The green river was superb, our appetizer was good- an asparagus dish wrapped in beef. Several other entree’s were average. We were disappointed in the overall experience but would go back for take out.

Sat outside in the patio in the summer and it was really cute. The food was great. Three of us shared about 8 rolls which was more than enough. It’s BYOB which is always helpful for the wallet 😊

Seadog is hands down my favorite sushi place in Chicago. Never once have I had a bad experience. The staff are friendly, attentive, and just great. It’s BYOB which is nice, and the sushi/sashimi is just unmatched. Extremely fresh and you really get bang for you buck.

I didn’t realize this was a BYOB restaurant but that was a nice surprise. With so many sushi places in the city, I picked this based on Yelp. I can say the reviews DID NOT disappoint. This place was AMAZING! We were a party of 7 for my bachelorette party and they had to split us into two groups bc Covid but they put us right next to each other on the patio.

The menu is EXTENSIVE which is nice but a little overwhelming. I ultimately went with a spicy California and the Spooky Maki. Both were DELICIOUS. Spicy California is usually solid or just lame, this was a 10/10 in my book. You gotta nail the classics! The Spooky was one of my favorite rolls I’ve ever had in my life. So unique and flavorful. I absolutely LOVED it. Eel, cilantro, spicy mayo torched and eel sauce. Perfect combo of sweet and spicy. There’s def a kick so if you can’t handle that don’t get it but it was amazing.

The sushi did take a loooong time to come out but the waitress gave us an appetizer on the house for waiting and the food was worth the wait. The waitress was exceptional. She checked on ya regularly, filled water, gave us ice buckets for our champagne and at the end of the night she took a picture for us on her phone (better camera) and air dropped it to us. I will be back regularly!!
