    I have visited this restaurant many times. Unfortunately, the portions are extremely small. I spent about $100 for myself and another person. It's safe to say we were both still hungry afterward.

    Every time I come back to Chicago I make sure I stop by for dinner. I really like the aburi and beef n bop bowl, but the spicy tuna roll is my favorite.

    This was the first time at Sushi-San and didn't know what to expect. Two friends recommended it. It was a great experience. It was filled with young Japanese people, and the noise level was acceptable for elderly people! The server was patient with us with our questions. The food was well presented and delicious! It was a birthday celebration, and the restaurant presented our table with Japanese chocolates for dessert which were to die for delicious. And the tab was reasonable. I hope to dine there again soon.

    The 8 nigiri set is way over price for the quality of the fish. It is a thin cut average quality sushi that you would find in a conveyor belt sushi establishment. There's a 3% service charge added to the bill. The restaurant needs to communicate with the customers upfront.

    I went to Sushi-San by myself. The food was amazing for the value. They have very high quality sushi at a reasonable price. You gotta order their spicy scallop roll — it’s a staple. My only critique is that as somebody who was there as a party of one, I was put at the end of one of their long tables instead of at the bar and at either side of me was a couple on a date so I was kind of intruding on them. Highly recommend going though to Sushi-San

    Food & Service was Great- Booked early dinner res easily accomondated but they got really busy before we left. Place gets a little noisy as the night progressed. Food was pretty good, waiter made some great suggestions. Happy Hour offers great value with limited selections. Had the Mr Maguro Combination- good quality and value. Staff very customer servive oriented and worked well as a team, all staff pitched in to provide high level of service. Great referral by the Park Hyatt Concierge. Enjoyed dinner and would return

    Made a reservation for 8pm and had to wait half an hour to get seated. The restaurant had obviously overbooked, and there was a huge crowd waiting in the reception area. The long wait was never acknowledged by the staff. The food is always great, but what’s the point of making a reservation if the restaurant won’t honor it?
