Wow so good! We got the chefs choice sashimi, nigiri and 2 rolls. Top quality, delicious.
Service was also great and efficient but not rushed. The sesame mochi are a MUST!
Thank you

Best Sushi in River North. It was crowded when most restaurants nearby were not.

This place is awesome! Great for a date and sitting at the bar and getting the tasting menu. I’d highly recommend or last night we did a pre fixed menu for my girlfriends birthday and had 14 people. Daniel and staff are awesome. So fun, totally enough food and all you can drink. Well worth it!! Great place and I’ll be back.

Great place to grab a quick bite or special occasion. The staff is really energetic and friendly. The food is great and the menu is filled with options for newbies to Japanese food or pros.

Can't wait to go back!

Amazing food - best sushi in Chicago - we were at Yume that same week and Sushi San is definitely superior.

The only downside is that it’s very crowded and a bit noisy... but when sushi is that good you should forget about the ambiance... ;)

The Omakase dinner is incredible. Each of the nine courses is delicious. I wish it wasn't so rushed so we could relax and enjoy more but it is advertised as a 45 minutes experience.

First time at Sushi San. It was fabulous. Food was wonderful and inventive. The sushi was amazingly fresh. Our sever Johnny C. was excellent. He guided us through the menu and his suggestions were spot on. It is bustling and noisy, but this added to the ambiance. My husband and I were able to talk easily to each other. Will be back!

overall, it's a good place for friends to hand out and chat. super chill vibe. food is nice and price is affordable. I would recommend people to try it out. The miso salmon is really tasty and the japanese breakfast pancake is worth trying too.

Not as great as it's reviews. We paid almost $300 tax nd tip included. We could've eaten at a Michelin starred restaurant at that price.

Our server was amazing. The place is very alive. The sushi was very basic. The appetizers were unique and delicious, we loved the tako tacos and had the tempura eggplant. Drinks were good

This was our first time at Sushi-San, and we will definitely be back. Despite a packed house for Valentine’s and All-Star Weekend, our food came quickly and was delicious. The musical vibe of the restaurant is just the cherry on top of the whole experience.
