This was our second visit to Nabuki and their sushi is some of THE BEST the suburbs have to offer especially having been spoiled for 10+ years living in downtown Chicago. We were a bit disappointed in the way they handle their reservations. We had a 7:15 and were waiting for our table when a party of 3 with a 7:30 reservation was seated before us, and then another party of 2 arrived for their 7:15 reservation and were seated before us after we had already been waiting 10-15 minutes. When we asks the hosts why this happened, they just said “YOUR table isn’t ready yet,” when we had made no special seating request and were clearly there well before all of the others. The restaurant understandably gets busy on a Friday night but the staff was easily overwhelmed by it all.
Juan is amazing. Every dish we had was great. We didn’t eat one thing that we didn’t like. The sea bass tacos are so good and so is the toro.
Excellent food & service, convenient to where I live
Would have preferred if children were not seated in the bar/dining area.
My bride and I enjoy Nabuki a lot. We’ve moved here from living in the Caribbean and really like their fish. The service is always good. Our only issue is trust with the bill. Each of the last 3 times we’ve been there, we’ve had at least an extra drink or food item added to our tab. We return for the food and service and certainly hope it’s a honest mistake, but it does have us guarded.
Always have a great experience here!
I test the caliber of a Sushi restaurant by ordering fatty salmon sashimi. The shashimi was well diluted and had lost it taste some.
Service was slow.
Food is always excellent, tried some new rolls and ordered some off menu. nabuki is always accommodating. Our server must have been very busy, we had to look for her a few times and even went to the bar once to grab a drink. We weren’t in any hurry so it wasn’t a huge issue
Way too loud
It’s always a scream fest in there — so annoying. The food is great but the venue is not
Can’t your figure out a way to dampen the noise?
In my opinion , I would limit bar seating to 21 and over. My party of 4 were seated in the back room again sitting near children. It’s a Friday night. I work at a pre school, the last thing I want to do is sit next to children in a bar and watch them color or on their screens . Have the bar for 21 and over after 4:30’pm. It’s an expensive place to sit and to be banished to the back room is unacceptable .
Always great sushi and service/attention even to our 3 little ones w kids menu, plastic cups, crayons etc
Another great experience at Nabuki. The wait staff is amazing! Everything from our drinks to food to service is excellent. They don’t push you out the door either.
Food was very good! Second time dining here.
We had such a fun time. We enjoyed the attention we received it was both professional and attentive. The food as always was delicious, every time we go we have a new favorite. I can’t wait to go back.
Very noisy. Food was good but not great.
Food itself was good but it took forever to arrive. They actually forgot to make some of our sushi order. Sushi came out piecemeal, slowly, over 40 minutes or so. Would not go back.
Terrible service. Our food took forever to arrive (even the appetizer) and the waiter was nowhere to be found 95% of the time. Why was I seated downstairs in the corner when I had reservations and I saw many empty tables upstairs. It was my first time, probably my last time. Sushi was mediocre anyways.
Food is phenomenal, literally hats off to the chefs.
Drinks could be refreshed a little quicker, however it bears noting that the restaurant was busy when we were there so this was more than understandable.
Best sushi in our opinion!
Always a favorite and crave worthy. Service is impeccable and the food is so delicious
Food was delicious and service was great. Maybe because it's Hinsdale, the wine list was pretty pricey. Cheapest bottle on list was $50! Nevertheless, we would go back again.
Horrendous service. Dirty plates piling up with no one picking them up. Food taking forever to arrive. No follow up from staff about missing dishes so if you don’t keep track, umm...too bad! After an hour and a half, just lost my patience and didn’t even wait for the remaining dishes. Paid & got the hell out of there! It was a special occasion which we ended up celebrating elsewhere where they were far more attentive than this sorry excuse for a restaurant!
Always a great meal. Lots of options for different tastes. If you go early there are a lot of families but that is not a deterrent. They treat everyone well.
Great food great atmosphere great service 😃
A splurge that never disappoints!
Amazing food and service!!!
Food is always incredible...expensive but incredible. This time the service was beyond slow. Not sure if server was new, her area too big and couldn’t get to her tables or what, but it was super slow.
This is my favorite sushi in the area. The Stanley Cup is maybe the most delicious thing I've ever eaten.
Has always been great. Really slow service this time. Questioning what changed. Will try again as has been my go to for good sushi in Hinsdale.
Good creative sushi but the service was terrible.
My new go to for sushi. That little bit of Mexican influence on Japanese sushi makes all the difference. I highly recommend. I would given it a straight 5 rating if it wasn't for the fact that it gets so loud at prime times that it is difficult to have a conversation. They open at 5, so the earlier you are there the better as far as noise level is concerned.
So noisy, it was impossible to have a conversation with my table mate. Hardwood floors....nothing to absorb noise. Food was good....but noise negated that.
It was great!
This was my first dining experience at Nabuki and it did not disappoint! Fried rice was amazing all of the sushi we ordered was perfection!
Great experience. The server was so helpful and his recommendations were excellent! We will definitely be coming back.
Best sushi, exceptional service, wonderful dining experience!
