Exquisite. Finest omakase in Chicago, by far. The food and service are outstanding.
Been to Kyoten, Takeya and Yume - Yume is the best value and the fish is the star - not the rice, vinegar or anything else. Have had omakase all over the world and Yume can stand with the best of them
The ingredients of the nigiris were fresh, but the flavors were all in one note, nothing exciting (quite boring actually. If anything, the dessert called matcha panna cotta was the best part out of the entire meal - the texture was perfect; the flavors were balanced, and it was beautifully put together, simply delicious). And besides the outrageous corking fee, everything else in terms of service, selections of sake, restaurant decor, etc. was pretty standard.
Amazing food and very friendly atmosphere
Unique flavors in each bite that need to be savored
Very good and fresh must try!!!!
I will never tire of this place and my favorite thing to do is to get coworkers to come and get addicted to the freshest sushi I've ever had.
Overall great experience!
Incredible experience! Still dreaming about every course.
Very good overall
This is an excellent sushi restaurant - in my opinion the best in Chicago with no close second. It is on par with the top sushi I’ve had in Tokyo. Enjoyed so much immediately made a return reservation.
Great experience, very intimate setting. Chef only talked to say the name of the dish. Sushi was incredibly fresh, added the Foie Gras that was amazing. Highly recommend!!
Most of the tastings were excellent but there were a few that were less than impressive. The sticker shock is real, about $100 more expensive than I would value the experience to be.
Unique experience! Loved watching the chef prepare the sushi. Having the ginger to eat between the courses was a palate primer. Good selection of courses with appetizer, miso soup and dessert. We enjoyed our companions. Good location. Would definitely recommend.
The fish and service was excellent. I would say that some of the patrons were obnoxious but that is something that the owners can't control. Overall, I would return for the food.
Excellent quality fish. Would go again.
The experience was great. The service and hospitality was so gracious, and the food was amazing. I will definitely be bringing friends next time I come in.
Good atmosphere with sophisticated edomae sushi. We enjoyed Japanese sushi counter very much in Chicago.
Chef Park and wife Kim provided us with an outstanding meal and one of the most memorable meals we have ever had. We are coming back in June.
It was quaint, quiet, courteous and above all worth every penny. The Chef the Servers all deserve medals for kindness and efficiency. The food was spectacular. The pace mellow and relaxed. I loved it! Will be coming back! Thanks Omakase Yume! I RETURNED WITH MY BROTHER! And it was just as amazing, consistent, attentive and peaceful. You can't go wrong with place where the Chef is focused and Servers are spot on. There are many points to love about Yume but I'll stop myself. One thing my brother and I can say for certain, WE WILL RETURN TO YUME!
Meal was 370.
It was 600
Bc the add on items from the main menu were 230 dollars.
The food is incredible. Must try!
Very expensive for the amount of food that was served, but the quality was top-notched.
Intimate. Luscious. Watching an artist at work.
Superb sushi and great service in a very intimate sushi bar setting. The omakase menu is reasonably priced, but the specials can add up. Ample street parking in the area.
An incredible experience at Omakase Yume. Chef took great care and appreciation for each course and you could taste it in the fish. Thoughtful and engaging staff. Will come back again and tell everyone about with wonderful omakase option.
We were excited to go and celebrate a birthday. The food was really good, but expensive for what it was. The restaurant was very sterile. No music or cool vibe. A couple walker-bys came in and opened the door to check on availability which instantly brought a massive cold draft into the restaurant. The chef was nice, but wasn't super engaging. They also have an a la carte menu which is overpriced and some of those items should have been included in the omakase ordering. Glad we tried it, but there are better omakase options in the city.
I have eaten at many sushi restaurants. The sushi was slightly above average, the portions were small. The overall value terrible. Save your money. The atmosphere was very quiet and just felt weird (and I usually like weird). I was hoping for so much more.
Absolutely incredible. Worth the wait!
Thanks again for everything and all the help to Kate to plan our engagement. Everything from chef, Kate, and the support staff was the best ever! I've never had any sushi even close to that excellent. See you guys soon!
What an amazing experience! The sushi was some of the best I have ever had, if not the BEST! Service was impeccable. Absolutely nothing to complain about! Bravo Omakase Yume
Amazing experience! I am in the industry and chef was happy to talk, in detail, about each course. Overall a great place for a special occasion.
Came here for a birthday - the food was amazing, quiet atmosphere and friendly staff. Would highly recommend for a special occasion or event.
Some of the best sushi this side of the city!
What a delightful experience with amazing ingredients. This cute 8 seat tasting menu is perfect. Chef Park and his wife offer beautiful dinner experience. There’s a unique assortment of fresh delights and a great assortment of sake, beer and white wines. Do your self a favor and get the first reservation you get. It’s worth the wait and the mula.
Best sushi I have had in Chicago to date, hands down.
If you have an opportunity to dine here, immediately seize it. Truly, a wonderful experience. It felt like we were sharing a meal with friends, and it was a privilege to watch someone in action who has spent countless hours honing his craft. Can't wait to return.
WOW. If wow could even do justice to the amazing meal we just had at Omakase Yume. Every piece of nigiri was absolutely delicious. Chef SangTae Park finds this beautiful balance of flavor as every ingredient he adds enhances and highlights the fish. I love how Chef’s wife will give us additional information on the fish and the ingredients Chef uses, as well as additional information as to why Chef approached the technique in a certain way or used certain ingredients. Thank you Chef and the Omakase Yume team for an amazing meal!
Best sushi I’ve ever had. Overall an amazing experience. Would highly recommend!
Came here by myself and really enjoyed every single dish on the menu (the fish and rice both). Honestly I think it's better than all the omakase places currently in Chicago.
