Very tasty sushi spot with creative rolls and presentation. Really enjoyed the cloud nine roll!
Large selection of excellent sushi rolls as well as other sushi/sashimi and Japanese dishes. Normally I only eat nigiri - but the rolls here are so good that I made an exception. My favorites were Acapulco roll, Caterpillar and Meguan rolls.
This has a feel of a cozy neighborhood restaurant, but you are going to get a Michelin star-worthy meal! The best sushi ever, with an interesting twist on every dish and exotic ingredients! An adventure you don't expect!
Our favorite sushi place. All the rolls we've had are phenomenal. Top favorite is the turtle. We always look forward to going here and know we are going to enjoy our meal.
So amazing. This place was recommended by a coworker and we loved it. Can't wait to go back.
Been coming here since they opened and still love it as much as we did the first night. Great food, decent prices, nice staff. Definitely my go-to sushi place in the city even after almost two decades of living here.
This place is such a great place to eat! Service is outstanding as is the food! Job well done
Rollapalooza is our go to place for sushi! It’s conveniently located for us as we’re right in the neighborhood but it’s good enough that if we had to we would drive a good distance for it. Thankfully we can just walk. And it’s BYOB which saves a lot of money for us!
one of chicago’s best sushi spots. personally, i love the garlic salmon, turtle, and pink flower specialty roles. they also have exceptional nigiri and sashimi, as their fish always tastes very fresh. my favorite appetizer is their super white tuna mango tartare. highly, highly recommend
Lots of tasty menu options, clean and cute aesthetic in a minimalist space. Fish was fresh and rolls were well made, but a little expensive for Boystown. Our server was really nice but could have helped with more recommendations or offered a drink menu. Around 3:30p on a Wednesday, we were the only ones there. I think some patio space would be nice but it is in a tight spot off Halsted.
I was rather disappointed. From the reviews we thought that Rollapalooza would be something special. It was just OK. It was a trip out of our way. We will probably not return, given the plethora of sushi restaurants in Lincoln Park and Lakeview that are closer to us. The staff were friendly and the service was prompt, however.
Such great food service and well worth every penny spent! About to plan my next trip back!!!!
I don't normally write reviews and I definitely do not normally eat sushi but my cousin was visiting and she wanted it. Plus it's nearby and BYOB, so I decided to try this place... and all I can say is I'm glad we did! 10/10 would recommend, I think I might even call myself a fan of sushi after eating here.
The staff was very easy to work with as we were planning a surprise. They had as much fun as we did! The menu choices were imaginative and delicious.
Rollapalooza has fantastic sushi for a decent price point. I love the Black Monster roll and my date loved the Nigiri. I absolutely recommend checking this place out! It's also BYOB and there's no corkage fee!
Food and service was excellent. Very customer focused with innovative sushi menu.
This is our go to place for sushi. Always fresh, always creative & great selection. Service is impeccable. They really take pride in everything they do. Not a big place so plan ahead if possible.
Food was excellent. However it took 40 minutes to get the first of our seven sushi rolls. We were starving so after inhaling the first, we had to wait another 15 minutes for each of the subsequent sushi rolls. While the rolls were all delicious, it really took away from the experience to have to receive and eat all the rolls separately, rather try them all simultaneously. It took a total of an hour and a half to receive all the food we ordered, so make sure you have a lot of time on your hands otherwise this restaurant isn’t for you.
Best Sushy in Chicago. Try the Black Monster Roll, it was so so good!!!
Great service and good food!
We were up in Lakeview for a comedy show and had heard about Rollapalooza. The sushi was very creative and the pieces very tasty. We overall enjoyed our food especially their specialty dishes. They were busy and the food took a while to arrive but definitely worth the wait.
The food was fabulous and creative. Very extensive menu. BYOB makes it really affordable. The waiter was very helpful as this was our first time. Very small place. Could use some sprucing up. Had a good time.
Delicious sushi. Competent and friendly service. Enjoyed bringing our own bottle of wine.
Food are delicious and BYOB without fees
Good food. Nice atmosphere. Service was not great but okay. Would go back again.
we come here often and always leave satisfied. this is our number 1 favorite sushi place.
Absolutely wonderful delicious food!
Always great food & service @ Rollapalooza. Small place, but great!
Great service, beautiful presentation, excellent food!! Will definitely go back!
The Smokey salmon was AMAZING! The turtle roll was good too. They have black rice here which is supposed to be better for you and lower in carbs.
Great variety of sushi options! I got sashimi and was so good...i love rollapalooza!! super casual BYOB spot to go with friends.
We have been to Rollapalooza quite a few times. We enjoy the variety of sushi rolls that tickle our palate from the hot and spicy to the sweet. We love the calamari salad and miso soup as starters. Then we move on to picking our sushi rolls which are always so good. We have never been disappointed when dining here. I highly recommend.
Always an amazing experience. Live the fact that we leave the ordering to them, and got to try new rolls
We were in the neighborhood for a movie on Christmas Day and this was one of the few restaurants open. What a good find. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. It is obvious they specialize in sushi rolls. They were artfully presented and delicious.
Don't be fooled by the neighborhood vibe- this is probably my favorite spot for sushi in the city. Two words: BLACK RICE. Mmmmm. I'm not sure why this superfood hasn't caught on at other sushi restaurants, but I'm so glad it's at this one. Try it and you will be hooked! Staff are so kind and attentive, fish is always fresh, appetizers are inventive, they are open late, BYOB, and the rolls are on par with some of the best I've had. I can't say enough great things about Rollapalooza!
Always an amazing experience!!!!
Nice and quiet at first. Group of 12 came in. It’s a small establishment and their group was very loud. Didn’t seem to mind the other customers.
Great food. Highly recommend
By far my favorite sushi restaurant! It's always a treat.
My favorite sushi place in Chicago which offers black rice.
The description of this restaurant says "we are not number one restaurant, but we do our best"- I can say this is the number one sushi restaurant I've been to in the city. If you are looking for great service, outstandingly fresh fish, and amazing sushi for everyday dining, a date, a birthday, special occasion, or even takeout, I can guarantee this place will not disappoint. Our absolute favorite, again and again.
