Smoaked salmon rolls were amazing. Fire alarm went off after a while and nobody seemed to know why...

They desperately need more staff, service is severely slow & waiters have multiple tables. The food was good that’s the only reason to go back but eat a light meal before you go, you won’t get your food or drinks for awhile.

Food options were decent but service was extremely slow although the restaurant was barely filled. Our waitress was nice but doesn’t help overall when food takes 45 minutes to come out.

Took the family out to dinner and service was super slow. Our waitress first brought out 3 drinks for the family of 4 until we had to ask for another. My husbands food came out about 20 minutes into dinner while our 3 year olds dinner of fried rice took over an hour (it was the side dish size). The waitress could not be found throughout dinner service. It then look 4 people to find her when we were requesting the bill. All in, service was 90 minutes for 3 sushi rolls and fried rice. Not worth the cost, time or money.

The food was good but the service was terrible. Our main server was not attentive, messed up our check and was sneaky about it and other servers we asked for help acted very put out by us.

We were on a birthday celebration. It was a Monday and we had no difficulty in finding a table that we liked. One of my drinks arrived a little late when the meal was already finished. I was told that bar was busy, but there hardly anyone at the bar. Other than that, whole experience was very good. Most importantly, I love the food you serve.

This was a Wednesday evening, I though the service could be better. I am accustom to all rolls being brought out at once not in stages. Waitress addressed us as, " i will being serving your group;" it was my wife and I. I guess the little things set the tone of how I viewed the experience.

Was disappointed that there was suddenly a $4 upcharge for frying our California rolls. Always order them for delivery to work and that never happened. The mango lobster roll is excellent but was not served with the sauce that is included in the delivered version. Bummer but overall good

Our server was nowhere to be found multilpe times, kept forgetting the soy sayce, ginger, wasabi etc.

My husbands food was brought out 15 min before mine-we didnt even enjoy our meal together. My sushi was terrible, I wasnt sure if it was because it was happy hour? But bad quality.

Bug fan! I have celiac disease and they have a gf sensitive menu but the staff is very knowledgeable as well. The manager also came to my table to let me know she was aware of the issue and taking great care to avoid cross contamination. I found this very comforting. Annnd.....I didn’t get glutened! :-D

We enjoyed our dinner, the sushi was delicious! The restaurant is nice. However, it was 7:30 and we felt like we were walking into a nightclub....the music was way too loud. I seriously thought they had they’re own DJ. Other than that, we would definitely go back and perhaps choose outdoor dining.

While the food is consistently great and the service usually good. This time the service was awful! Very inattentive. Never brought silverware. Had to get it ourselves. Also took a long time to get our check. We sat outside and the umbrella almost fell on us. Hard tome finding someone to take care of it. Wanted to box up our leftovers and the waitress threw them away!!

They have some really good food on the menu, aside from their sushi. There isn’t one roll that doesn’t include crab or crab mix, which just shows cheap and inauthentic they are as a sushi restaurant. Lots of other tasty options, just not super sophisticated sushi.

Just kind of disappointed again. Tried again after 2 weeks. Quality of food didn't even seem as good. You ask for something hot and it's not brought hot. The servers excuse is always the kitchen is backed up with an attitude. The appetizers all came out with the sushi so 3 appetizers and 3 sushi rolls just isn't ideal all at once. Then edamade. No refills on drinks. Not really sure what is happening there. But again, it's Lombard and a classy area..this kind of service sucks!!

This restaurant is beautiful, in a beautiful Mall. It's a shame the quality of both the food, and wait staff, has decreased so dramatically since I was there a couple of years ago. What should have been enjoyable date night, turned out with me having to constantly pester the staff for basics such as Wasabi, plates, chopsticks, and straws for water. When are food did arrive, the presentation was wonderful, unfortunately I was expecting an average of 10 to 12 pieces, but instead received only five per roll. In addition our appetizer didn't make it out until after our entrees.

It's a shame because as I mentioned the restaurant is beautiful, it seems such a waste to have incompetent people who are ruining it.

Great food! Awesome DJ Friday evenings! Unfortunately we ended up putting our overwhelming amount of dirty plates on the table next to us because not one person came to remove the used plates once we were done using them. Other than that, the service was good and the loud music and low lights created a nice, weekend ambiance!

The past two times. Service has been horrible.. Guy totally forgot about 2 of our sushi rolls we ordered. Also tables were always dirty. One waitress that we asked for just drinks bluntly said she's not our waitress and doesn't know who is. This is Lomabrd not sure what is happening at this location, very disappointing tho.

We arrived for a 12:45 reservation on Mother’s Day. The party included 4 small children. At these ages the children can only sit still for so long and we still had not been served all of our food an hour and a half later. We were in this restaurant for 2:00 for lunch. It was over all an unpleasant way to celebrate Mother’s Day

Our reservation was for 7:30pm to celebrate my wife for Mother’s Day. We were seated right on time. We sat in the middle of the restaurant, and the restaurant was probably about 3/4 full at most. 10 minutes went by and my wife and I made note that we were surprised that no one has been to our table yet. We noticed the servers we saw around us were servicing their tables. Another 10 minutes went by and still no server had been to our table. I went to the hostess and notified her that 20+ minutes has gone by and we had yet to see a server. She quickly apologized and went on the search for someone to help us. After about another 5 minutes a server came to our table, didn’t apologize for our wait, took our drink order and left immediately after taking down that order. Another 10 minutes went by and we still had not received our drinks, not even glasses of water. After 45 total minutes we got up and left.

ALL THREE SUSHI ROLLS WERE BROUGHT TO THE TABLE BEFORE OUR DRINK CAME OUT. WE FINISHED OUR FOOD BEFORE THE FIRST DRANK EVEN CAME OUT. KEPT HAVING TO REMIND THE WAITER TO SERVE OUR TABLE...
