From the team behind RAMEN-SAN, SUSHI-SAN serves up fresh fish with fresher beats. With crispy
handrolls, bincho-tan roasted meats and ice-cold beer; this is not your typical sushi joint. Come in and see for yourself.

Honestly some of the best sushi I have had, a little different but everything was fresh and the fish is excellent. Awesome experience and I'll have to come back the next time I'm in Chicago

Everything was amazing until we looked at the bill the next day. The manager was treating our party to a few appetizers because we were waiting for our table to be ready longer than they expected. Once we left and saw the bill they charged us for all the “complimentary” appetizers. We didn’t even ask for this.

Ordered the daily sashimi special (otoro), shishito peppers, bbq lettuce wraps, crunchy spicy tuna rice (5pc), a few cocktails, and a sake bottle. We ate every last drop and rice grain. so tasty. excellent service and ambient make it worth going vs just takeout. Will go again soon !

Had a great first experience here- food was amazing and different from classic sushi restaurants. The only con was it is pretty expensive and adds up. Would definitely suggest for a special occasion or just go sit at the bar for a snack and some drinks. Still thinking about how good the food was!!

I was very surprised that the food was not good. The soy sauce was way too salty. And the makis (purchased 4 different makis) were also salty. It was a saturday night, and I couldn't believe how bad the sushi was. Ambiance of the place was great.

We really enjoyed our entire experience, minus the waiter. After our drink, he never once came to see if we needed another drink. He never smiled and seemed completely uninterested in our table.

Place was packed. Staff at the front not overly friendly and because the woman who initially greeted us went MIA, the guy who took her spot didn’t know that she had banished us to the bar because we were a bit early - so when our reso time came they never let us know. We had to go back over to the desk and the guy acted pretty indignant that we weren’t right there on time. After that - no complaints other than maybe time down the house music.

Rude service - the waiter took away our unfinished edamame plate, even though I was still eating it. Same happened with our sushi plate - there were sushi remaining but he took away all the chop sticks.
Food quality was far below what you can find in a much cheaper place - our nigiri were mainly rice with very little fish in it.

The non-sushi items were quite good, but the sushi items were just average for sushi in Chicago. Presentation was good across the board and service was good. The music was too loud for lunch although I think the target audience was into it.

My boyfriend and I had a great dinner at SUSHI-SAN on Saturday night. The sushi was extremely fresh and delicious. We had the Spicy Tuna, Wagyu Tartare, Tempura Shrimp Maki, and S&P Chicken. We both ordered the Cilantro-Lime Margarita. The menu is creative and fun, and the service excellent. We were seated right on time for our 7:15 pm reservation even though the bar and restaurant were filled. I highly recommend it for a night out. Cheers and Happy New Year!
