Excellent food and drink, attentive service, friendly staff. Thank you for a memorable evening!
very tasty; portions not very large but quality. Hostess accommodated son with disabilities and very pleased with our table. I like the individual restrooms. Waitstaff helpful and pleasant but it was sometimes hard to catch them (maybe more waitstaff needed).
I arrived early for a 7:45 reservation and was not seated until 8:15 and was told that the kitchen was behind and my order would not arrive for 45 minutes to one hour. So I got up and left. I was unhappy that they hadn't told us that when we checked in for the reservation so I wouldn't have to wait 45 minutes to find out it would be yet another 45 minutes before eating.
I want to be completely fair to the restaurant and say they they were entertaining a very large private party which probably accounts for the kitchen delay. And when I complained to the manager, she was very apologetic and provided my companion and I with a gift card for our next visit. At least now I'm only disappointed and not angry.
Great service and food. Made my fiancé very happy with how her birthday dinner went! Will definitely come again soon.
Definitely very pricey. Portions were small. But did a great job with celebrating my birthday
This place is hot
Sushi is overrated.
Great service at the sushi bar!
When we walked in and the restaurant was bare they tried to seat us right by the front door. We had a reservation for 6:00 pm. We asked to be moved to the back of the restaurant in a booth. The hostess got snippy and said that’s fine but we have to be done by 8:00 because that booth was reserved. The one next to us was open the entire 2 hours we were there. There was no reason for her attitude. The food was good but portions are small and overpriced.
The food does not miss any marks. The fatty tuna and beef tartare are MUST orders. The ambiance of this restaurant makes you wanna stay for another drink and dessert, as well.
Can't wait to come back!
Absolutely incredible. Definitely the finest sushi you’ll find within a 1000 mile radius.
Just about everything we ate was amazing. The Wagyu Tartare, Scallop Motoyaki, and Tako were delicious and well presented. I would highly recommend the Chef's Seasonal Sashimi. Presentation was awesome and the fish was incredibly fresh. The only underwhelming dish was the Tontoro, which was presented somewhat plainly and was just OK. While Berkshire pork is generally delicious, the dish was missing something and didn't really excite.
The ambiance and service were excellent. It was a bit noisy, but that's to be expected for a packed restaurant. Pricing is definitely reasonable for what you get. I'll definitely be back.
We came here to celebrate my husbands birthday. He was very excited to try Gene Kato menu, as he is one of his favorite Chiefs. However I was so disappointed in the restaurant, it was no the same as I remembered it. The food was good, the service was not great. They don’t have kids cups, but have high chairs - strange, they charged us 3$ for extra 3 pieces of toast of the size of the cracker. Which is ridiculous. My daughter was eating eat, and you would think for the prices they charge they wouldn’t go that low. We ordered two bottles of wine, but all my husband got was a little pocake. Which is kinda rude, you should have brought at least a scoop of ice cream for the table.... needles to say we will not be back and will not recommend this place anymore.
Incredible. Go! Don’t hesitate. Just do it.
Amazing meal! Amazing drinks! Amazing service! Amazing everything! Great quality sushi with an added bonus of being able to order fresh grated wasabi! The robata menu was amazing and very tasty . Cannot wait to venture back here!
Amazing food and great service. Crab leg appetizers was delicious. Sushi rolls were fresh and fantastic. Beef sliders were also delicious. If there had to be a complaint it would be the noise level. Vibrant atmosphere but difficult to hear people you sit with because so loud.
Incredible! I was impressed not only by the food and ambiance, but also by the service! Every staff member that we interacted with knew it was my significant other's birthday, and they really made us feel special. Well done!
The food is amazing...the drinks amazing...the service amazing...had a great time.
I’ve been wanting to go this place but the menu I was looking for wasn’t available and the menu didn’t really explain the portion. For example, I order tontoro (2 skewers for $16 btw) and a lot for he places would say how many skewers I will be getting but it didn’t say anything on the menu. The portion overall is very small and the place is very loud. My friends and I couldn’t even have a proper conversation. Will not be returning.
Gorgeous decor, great food, wonderful service. The bar downstairs is great!
Been going here for years and the ambiance, service, cocktails, and quality of sushi never disappoints. One of my favorite Chicago restaurant establishments.
Always a pleasure to eat here! My boyfriend and I went here to celebrate our 4 year anniversary after our flight to New York got cancelled and we spent the evening trying to get refunds on our tickets, hotel, and dinner reservations. Everyone was so understanding and seemed to hear about our situation and stop by our table to wish us a happy 4 year anniversary! It was so nice of them! Chef Gene Kato also sent over 4 amazing desserts. So happy to have ended our night celebrating at Momotaro. We wouldn't have had it any other way. Thank you again for such an amazing experience yet again. Stand out dishes for us today were the Shiitake and the Cold Tofu as always!
Tasty eats. The barracuda and crab leg were my favorites. Oysters are huge, so I woukd just order one per person.
Veeery good! The only caveat is this time the Otoro was not as buttery as we are used. But the special Red Snapper was superb
Wonderfull Place and the Food Was delicius only the noise is horrible
The food is amazing. Everything we had was perfect. We had a great experience. The service was amazing too. All the food was explained to us nicely when served. We sat at the Counter and were able to see the Sushi being made.
My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary, and noted that in our OpenTable reservation that we're celebrating our 2nd anniversary. They wished us as soon as we checked in, gave us a nice comfy table, and made us feel extra special. We really appreciate the service and the high quality of food here -- we're vegetarian, and though the vegetarian menu is much smaller, it's all super delicious food!
Spectacular meal. Every bit was perfection. The salmon belly will haunt me for months. Just a wonderful sushi experience.
Waitress was very helpful and accommodating to our large group
The food was absolutely wonderful. The restaurant itself didn't have any particularly striking decor, so I rated it...a restaurant. Totally worth the price of admission, however. We had a number of rolls, a few special pieces, a couple of warm dishes, and a few desserts. Not a complaint to be had on the lot.
Excellent food and service. Recommend it highly. Especially good for larger parties.
Great food and great service!
Great as always
My absolute favorite!!
Too noisy to talk. Excellent food and service. Unique menu.
Another great evening at Momotaro. The food was outstanding and very flavorful. Our waitstaff was helpful and attentive. The chicken oysters were very flavorful and juicy. We also had the gobo, spaghetti, tsukune, tako and tofu fried noodles. The sushi was delicate, fresh and delicious! The sake (Cloudy Dreams, Drunken Snapper and Snowflake) was crisp and refreshing. I can’t wait until my next visit!
Absolutely fantastic! In the elite Chicago food scene
Food was great. One of the best sushi places for certain. Pricey.
