The food is amazing! I only have Chilean sea bass!!! Plus Lobster roll and spring roll. My favs
Food is great! Definitely coming back soon! :-)) But if you're looking for quiet, that its not. Busy place and very loud music. (Good club like music
We have been to multiple locations. This particular location seemed rather crowded. We had a reservation at 6:30 and finally sat down at 7:30. We had a group of 8 people. As you can imagine difficult to be standing around for an hour. The bar is small. There was no space to wait anywhere. Once seated the server had no idea what the rolls were and needed a menu to let us know what was in the rolls. She seemed flustered at times. This location was beautiful on the outside but we will not be back!!!
This was one of the worst experiences I've had at a restaurant. We were not given refills. We had to wait forever to get our food. The server rarely checked on us. The food was mediocre and not worth the price. I will not be returning to this place.
Service was excellent. Food came out quickly however did not feel rushed and we were able to enjoy the dinner at a nice pace.
Very “Bro” spot vibe, the music reminds me of my Cancun vacation when every bar/club played the same music. Waiter was great and food was good.
Meeting with a friend for dinner. Enjoyable experience.
Food was great. Service was great. Waitress had an awesome personality. Great atmosphere.
Great server. She was very knowledgeable. Ambiance was fantastic
Great fun vibe for a night out. Food was delicious. Not for small kids.
Music early in eve when my husb and I have dinner is obnoxious. We come early 4:30 -5:00 and we can hardly speak because music is obnoxious n loud not a dine ng environment. We have asked to have it turned down but have been told manager wont allow mysic lowered. I understand when there is a full house but when there are only a few tables w bouncing sound off walls its obnoxious. We have negated going because of this issue. Also no server has ever asked us about points. I signed up on line with the ponits when i made an online reservation and no one has asked if we have a point card.
I don't really care for sushi but took my bf for his birthday because he loves sushi. For sushi it wasn't terrible. The place is really nice and reminds me of a nightclub. If I return it would be nice to sit upstairs. I was surprised at how many families were there with their kids. Didn't seem like a family place. Presentation of the food was really nice.
It wasn't my best experience of the day..
Shakou didn’t disappoint! Food was excellent and the service was top notch. Prices were reasonable for the amount of food you get and the price point of similar restaurants. We will definitely being going back in the future.
Great food and a very nice overall experience here when we came for dinner. Sat upstairs on the couches and it was very comfortable. Drinks, sushi and the soft shell crab appetizer were excellent!
Tasty sushi. On point beverages. House music. Great suburban date spot with a river north vibe.
Get a corner or side booth for noise level. Then it’s tolerable.
The food was delicious and artfully plated! Loved it! Will definitely visit again soon!
This was me and my girlfriend’s second time coming, our experience was amazing. The food was great and an overall wonderful place to dine.
The food was spectacular, as was the ambiance. What a beautiful restaurant. The menu truly has something for everyone.
Great food with good Service the Sushi was great and in the end we had 5 different rolls all were great we couldn’t determine the best . We will be back
The Shakou staff accommodated our large group at the last minute and made us feel very welcome. Our waitress was incredibly attentive and helped us make decisions about dishes and gave feedback on ingredients and prep. Her knowledge was top notch. The rest of the staff was both efficient and fun, and we had a fantastic business meal with plenty of collaboration and delicious food!
We had great food with outstanding service. I would highly recommend.
Great food and excellent service. Awesome restaurant.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THE FOOD. Kinda pricey (but my date was drinking high ball scotch so drinks alone were over $50)
This is the second time eating at Shakou in the past month and both times it was absolutely delicious!
I love Shakou and have never had a bad experience till this time. First off we had reservations at 8:30pm and did not get seated till 8:50 and were just standing and waiting and got told “the kitchen was behind” and the host was overly rude. When we sat down, I the water glass I was given was chipped. So had to get that replaced. I’ve been to this place numerous times and love it, but this last experience was terrible.
Reservation was a little late. Host and server were welcoming and helped up pick our rolls. Food was excellent. Great date spot.
Sea Star cold appetizer was delicious!
It was very very noisy not very good ambience especially for Valentine’s Day felt rushed very disappointed after reading some reviews and speaking with friends who have been there
The lady host at the door was very rude the place smelled so bad like spoiled fish it was not a pleasant experience at all would not recommend to any of my friends
The music was way too loud to visit with friends. The music did not seem to match the decor.
Music is a little loud
Great food-Great atmosphere. Always a great experience coming here. Our server KATIE provided exceptional service!
Service is great, food is awesome, a can't miss if you're in Libertyville.
Tremendous for the food and ambience, plus personalized service.
All was great except for table they reserved for us, it was next to the service elevator, not cool! Waiter nice enough to relocate us.

Always a winner, this chic Libertyville restaurant have a club vibe and much more than sushi. As a bonus it has excellent vegetarian options, something unexpected. Service could be a little warmer and attentive, but it’s not disastrous. It is a touch more expensive than some other destinations, but for the glamorous environment on red hot Milwaukee Ave, they can charge a premium.
