Yellowtail Sushi and Asian Kitchen
Excellent food and service. The staff was extremely apologetic when the kitchen was backed up, and even though we really didn’t have to wait long for our food, they gave us complimentary appetizers and were extremely attentive. I would definitely come here again and recommend to friends.
Hot stone bowl was a little too sweet and not spicy.
The people at both tables next to us were terrible to sit next to but that has nothing to do with the restaurant! Great time otherwise :)
Everything was great.
Yellowtail is a fantastic byob date spot with really good sushi
Always our go-to sushi spot in Chicago. Best sushi in the area and always great service!
Versatile menu that offers something for everyone, even if you don’t like Sushi. The sushi is great though. Very fresh fish, beautiful rolls. BYOB is an extra bonus , so you bring what you like. The service is super friendly and helpful with recommendations.
This is our go-to for sushi in the neighborhood. The food is always fresh and the service is spot on.
Best sushi that we’ve had in the city of Chicago. Great price, great quality, and great staff! We come here at least once a month.
Best place for sushi in Chicago. Calvin and his wife are so sweet.
Best sushi in the city
The people here are always amazing. Working together and so friendly to provide wonderful hospitality and food.
Amazing night.Food is excellent and portions abundant, also great value. The place is so tastefully decorated and cute. Our server Yaz was very discreet and respectful of our conversations whilst providing us with everything we needed. I loved their service, very careful and balanced, best I had in a while.
Thank you for a great night!
I love Yellowtail. They have great outdoor seating and are BYOB!
This is an economic mainstay, great sushi & BYOB!
Always fresh delicious food, excellent service and atmosphere. By far my favorite sushi place!
The food here is WONDERFUL! The servers all seem quite new and are sweet but a little uncertain of what they're doing and how to accommodate guests. (I had to flag several down to get basics like water.)
However, I wouldn't let this deter you from attending because the food is sensational and the prices are quite good. This has become a neighborhood gem.
Yellowtail is my favorite sushi spot in all of Chicago. From the food, kind, prompt service and atmosphere, you can't go wrong.
We were looking for a casual spot for dinner at the last minute on a Friday night. Heard Yellowtail was BYOB, got an immediate reservation through OpenTable, and arrived 15 minutes later. It took longer than expected for our table to be ready—over 45 minutes, actually. But restaurant staff was extremely attentive—they made sure we had chairs to wait comfortably and brought us appetizers on the house. Eventually we sat down to an amazing menu with delicious, quality food for a great value. Everyone was apologetic about the wait and made sure we had the best experience possible. The ambience and decor were great as well. Now that we know it’s there, we’ll definitely be going back!
OMG loved this place! It was my first time and can’t wait to go back. The fish was amazingly fresh and the rolls creative. Then the bill came and we were shocked.......it was so reasonably priced! Will definitely be back soon!
I don’t normally leave negative reviews. (I am a former restaurant manager in Chicago). However this is the second time that I’ve been here and had horrible service. The first few times I was in awe. Great service and great sushi. However the last two times it’s been horrible service. When we order everything at once and say “please place all items in now and don’t worry about the timing” it doesn’t mean “please course our items and make us wait 30 minutes between courses.” Also the “we had a lot of carry out orders” is a horrible excuse for terrible service. Next time I will order carry out and not frequent your establishment.
The food is always great and the service is fast and friendly.
Great food , amazing service , remember it’s BYOB
Great value and friendly service!
Great ambiance! Good food! Excellent service! Will go back!
There are so many interesting choices on this extensive menu. We all ordered sushi and everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The restaurant is lovely and comfortable. The only thing that made our meal less than perfect was that it got very noisy. We were there for an early dinner and there were no other guests. Soon after, a large, noisy party arrived and they were seated very close to us. It's not a large restaurant so I understand that ultimately all the tables would fill, but it seemed like when it was just us and the other group, they could have been seated further from us.
It was great! And the owner was very hospitable. Food was good
Great dining experience and very good food!
Yellowtail has been mine and my partners’ favorite sushi place in all of Chicago. They’re byob which puts them above the rest. Their service really tops every other sushi place we’ve been to and their fish is SO GOOD.
Best sushi in lakeview- best roll is the executive chef. There are also quite a few non-sushi items as well. I would highly recommend the Kobe beef stir fry
Restaurant lost our reservation but we were seated within 20 minutes. Food was good, but the service felt rushed even though the restaurant was not busy. Overall a nice meal.
