The appetizer of chicken lettuce wraps was delicious -- even better than the versions served at comparable restaurants. The Szechuan Tilapia was good, but surprisingly not all that spicy. The host was nice enough not to mention that we were 15 minutes and we were seated fairly quickly, but the waitress left something to be desired. Interesting selection of drinks, wine, and sake. Wines seemed reasonably priced. The overall atmosphere was good; quite a few groups of 6+ people; lots of laughter and chatter.
A very nice selection of sushi for a lunch meeting!
I had been to the Wok n Fire in South Barrington and loved it, so I had thought the restaurant in Addison would have the same positive experience. Wrong. The wait staff was horrible. Our waitress or any waitress for that matter was never around. I had to keep flagging down the hostess to get served and even ask for our check. When I kept looking around, I saw all the wait staff near the kitchen talking. which was why no one was around when we needed them.
The food was ok but nothing special. I was very disappointed overall and will not be going back.
Made a reservation on Open Table the day before. Seated right away and the service was outstanding. Ordered appetizers while I wait for my friend to arrive which were delicious. Then came the sushi, some of the best I ever had. Ordered everything from the seasonal menu and it was terrific. We will be going again very soon!!
Brought friends there for their first time. Did appetizers and a little bit of this little bit of that for variety. Like everything
I have been here several times over the last 7 years. I have never had anything bad. Everything is awesome.
Walked in without a reservation told about a 30 min wait. Found it on open table and got seated within 10 minutes and from there everything from the food to the staff was superb!
The food is good, but the prices are expensive. The music is pretty loud too. Nice for the younger crowd.
The restaurant is a little on the small side, so be sure to make a reservation. The food and service were both great.
Had the best birthday night eating my favorite sushi, drinking great wine and spend my night with an amazing friend!!
food was good I really enjoyed our crab Rangoon
Next we were the only ones sitting in the dining room everyone else at the bar and patio. However it took the girl 10 minutes to come and say hi. I work in the indust I would've understood if it were busy (she was nice though)
Everyone was dressed in shorts and tees so nothing fancy like we had kind of expected due to pictures. Pacific punch was good too
Food is tasty but fillers such as the crunchy cellophane noodles are used to make servings larger. We ordered the lettuce wraps and the seasonal shrimp - very deep fried, only 8 mid sized shrimp and loads of the cellophane noodles. The presentation is very pretty in a red cabbage leaf. We left hungry. Good but not great!
Love the sushi appetizer platter, lettuce wraps, noodles and specialty rolls. Never had any complaints!
Was in town for a course and thought we would give it a try for its GF menu. The rolls were fabulous as a change from our traditional sushi place back home. Only negative was there was no booster seat for my daughter. The manager rectified that with a few phone books. Great service and food a little overpriced but we enjoyed our meal.
We enjoy the sushi very much! This is our second visit (different location) We will continue to dine here because even the kids enjoyed it.
Good food. Prices are a bit high. Love the scallops.
We enjoyed the sushi sampler and shared a noodle dish. Both delish, noodles a tad doughy, tuna melt in your mouth. Service fair. Close to home and my daughters favorite, we'll return.
I've frequent this restaurant ever since the opening about 1-2 times a month. Lately things have not been up to par including missing items when we order take out. My wife is 25 weeks pregnant and we don't go out much, we booked via Open Table and 3 things really set me off to write this review...
1) we were seated in a spot where every time the door opened we got a rush of cold air, we asked to move and they happily did so
2) I really don't like when waiters do not write down order, ordered 3 rolls all with soy paper and all 3 came out w/o it. They took it back and replaced after 15 min...
3) Never once were we asked if we would like to order if we needed anything, felt like we bothered server multiple times for place setting, waters, etc
Great food, attentive wait staff, nice looking place. Only possible complaint would be that it was a bit crowded but that's understandable. Very highly recommended.
Food and Service was Good but I thought was alittle pricey!!!
I have dined at Wok N Fire in downtown Elmhurst many times and have never been disappointed with Wok N Fire restaurants until I went to the Addison location. The sushi was horrible. No flavor, no flare - very small rolls and they were falling apart. The service was very slow and it didn't even seem to be busy that evening.
Don't get me wrong...I am not bashing them...I LOVE Wok N Fire and frequent the Elmhurst location sometimes almost once a week on Fridays for happy hour & have never been disappointed like this before. I will not go back to the Addison location - I will only continue to frequent the Elmhurst location. Their wait staff and chefs are PHENOMENAL in Elmhurst!
Too bad Addison doesn't have what Elmhurst does.
I abosolutly love Wok n Fire! It's my favorite place to eat of all times! Lunch or dinner, i love it!
chicken lettuce wrap appetiser was delish! :) had a variety of sushi and everything was excellent!
Great food and ambience. Go for happy hour in the lounge. 1/2 price apps and some drinks. The macedemia crusted chicken is amazing!
WokNFire in Addison is a definite "goto" anytime my gal and I are looking for sushi. The happy hour has really good prices on some excellent rolls and appetizers, and you can't go wrong with their happy hour mango margarita. Most other happy hours we've gone too drop down to very basic rolls and "happy hour" size appetizers, but the appetizers here could almost be a meal on their own and the rolls all come from their traditional combo menu. The happy hour is only for when seated at the bar/lounge area, but we've never had to wait too long for a seat in either part of the restaurant.
This was the first time my husband and I went to this restaurant. We went for lunch on Sweetest day, and we're extremely pleased with the food and service. The décor was very impressive when you enter, the booths are very quiet and the food is the best. Will definitely go back to this restaurant again.
Love this place! Have been coming here for a couple of years when I am in the suburbs and never get tired of it. The food is fantastic. Their seafood just melts in the mouth! Love their chef's specials- scallops, mahi mahi, and salmon. Sushi is the best in the area! Perfect place for a romantic date or just hanging out with friends.
We dine here frequently. "Papa" creates fantastic Sushi with a flair for plating. We like to try a different roll each time and one has been better than the other. The wok tossed entrees are delicious. Extensive drink menu and the kids love the desserts. One of our favorites.
Server was pushy. She didn't have any common sense. If we don't seem interested in ordering any other food... let it go.
Food was ok.
Rather hear Japanese music not alt pop.
Other then that...
this trip I didn't see a specials menu.
Our waitress was great...very cheerful, helpful in explaining a few menu items (different rolls and sakes) and checked in with us periodically without being intrusive. The barman came out to explain the sake flight and the attributes of the various sakes. It was the food that was really underwhelming. We ordered a few pieces of unagi...which was not good at all. We had two rolls...I can't remember the names but something unique to their menu...which were very average at best. Two pieces of yellow tail nigiri...again average. The presentation was nice enough, but the food itself was a bit disappointing. Now that I have tried it, I would move onto other restaurants yet to be discovered.
My friend and I went in to eat and thought that our waitress was perfect. Her name was Sarah and she was kind and friendly. She was very genuine and always looking out for us. She made great recommendations as well!
At best, this a very mediocre chain restaurant; the food was bland and the server clueless and hard to find. even though the restaurant was pretty empty, the service was slow. We asked to make our dishes spicy and the waitress brought us chili flakes so the cook is probably not very good either. We asked for a dessert menu; the waitress brought us a binder with the drinks menu. Apparently, the dessert menu was supposed to be in this binder. It was not. She brought us another one and put the binder with the missing page on another table.
Wok n' Fire in Addison has a great warm ambiance. The dark woods, lanterns, and the use of chinese characters creates a classy atmosphere with that necessary and tastefully done Asian touch. For mother's day they offered a dim sum special brunch. The dim sum consisted of a variety of sampler sized dishes. The actual cuisine was a variety of Asian or Asian-inspired dishes. It was all very delicious!! It was a very special treat for us, however we ended up eating far too much of all of this good food!
Second time at the restaurant - as good as the first. Tried the fried banana dessert - magnificent!
This was my first visit. Nice varied menu, beautifully prepared and presented.
Excellent bussing of table as we went. Noise level a bit high. We felt prices were slightly on the high side.
The place was pretty nice and quiet. I was there on a date and the service was great. We had to wait a little for the food to come out even with the not so busy day but once the food came out it was worth the wait. We ordered a veggie sushi and chicken fried rice along with a tofu dish. Food was amazing. I would recommending this restaurant to all my friends and it’s a must try place.
Usually a great place for food and drinks. Food was okay this time - hopefully just an off night. Will be back to try again.
First vist to this location with my peers. The food was great! The wait staff was nice, attentive. Overall good place for lunch!
Great local find. Good, varied food options and extensive drink menu. Really enjoyed the sake sangria! Mango mahi mahi was great.
