Great sushi place in Wicker Park area. The dragon roll is delicious, and their veggie rolls are always on point.

Good food, lots of options, reasonably priced. Food took a little longer than anticipated for a rather moderate Friday night, but the staff was very friendly and offered a free appetizer for the wait.

Food was good but it was an hour after we ordered before we actually received food. By then we were so hungry it was difficult to actually enjoy the food. At some point serving staff told us the kitchen was backed up, but communication was poor. They didn’t do enough to A) give us something to snack on while we waited and B) tell us how much longer we should expect to wait

We have come here probably six times in the past year. My family really likes the sushi and we love sitting out back on their patio. We like that it's BYOB and the service is always good. I'm not much of a sushi fan so I'm always looking for more of the cooked dishes, such as scallops. The last three times we've come, they've been out of several of the cooked options. It's disappointing to not find something I enjoy eating. I think we need to find a different place that has options for non-sushi eaters.

The outdoor patio was lovely and the service was ok but the food was wretched. Really awful.
I’ve booked many Open Table reservations, but this is the first time I have submitted a review. I don’t normally complain but the food is truly inedible. Take a pass.

This used to be the low-key place to go for good, fish-forward sushi. However, my last experience was hot (A/C broken?), cramped (tables are packed), and there was just sauce on everything. I'm all for sauce, when you can taste the different components of a roll. This was too much. Presentation was thoughtless (I feel like it used to be better?).

Service was exceptionally slow, which would be forgiving on a busy weekend night; however, we dined on a Tuesday, and was the only table in the restaurant (besides a couple carryout orders). Also we were really disappointed by the fish quality. The spicy salmon had a weird mayo and the salmon was slimy. The namasake sushi was stringy looking and fell apart as I picked each piece up. Also it was very odd that each namasake was covered with sesame like seeds - I never had sushi before which was sprinkled with seeds. Not sure if it was trying to mask something but it was a texture and taste turnoff when you are just looking for clean, fresh tasting fish.

This was our first visit to Seadog. I was a little put off by some of the reviews that said the service was slow but that was not our experience at all. The service was fantastic. The restaurant is lovely, but a little cramped depending on where you are seated. The food overall was good but a few things we had were a little bland. BYOB is a major plus.

Their sushi was fresh and delicious! I ordered the sashimi platter and several uni sushi. I was not disappointed at all! They also have free parking out front, which was a nice bonus. The atmosphere was romantic, dark, and moderately quiet. Definitely a great restaurant to have a dinner date with friends, families, and couples.

The food was delicious. However the services was slow and overall pretty poor. They have a deal for parties of different size we did the party of 10 for $225.00, were you pick 6 different app, 9 Maki rolls and 8 specialty rolls. However it was not explained that if you order an appetizer listed such as Goyza, it is one order (4 dumplings) we assumed since this deal was advertised for a party of 10 you would get enough to feed the whole table at least one. We waited about 20 min between first few plates then everything came out at once like rapid fire. Like I said though the food was good maybe with a smaller group it would be better. As well as this place is BYOB they didn't charge us a corking fee so Idk if they have one.

First time at Seadog. Food is great but took some time for food to come out but it was a busy Saturday night so not surprised it took a bit. Regardless service was good. I’m all about BYOB, no corkage fee. I’d come come back.
