handrolls, bincho-tan roasted meats and ice-cold beer; this is not your typical sushi joint. Come in and see for yourself.
Greatest sushi so far in Chicago after trying many! And the service was beyond!
Everything was amazing except having to wait even though we had a reservation. I will definitely be returning 🙌🏻
Terrible, sad sushi. The nigiri didn’t stick together like it should. The rolls were mediocre at best for the price. Would’ve rather got sushi from Walmart in Waukegan.
Service and food were outstanding. Will definitely go back.
Everything was great. Service, Food, DRINKS and the atmosphere was lively and fun
Great place! Food was fantastic. Fun spot for a group or even as a couple.
Loved everything! Thank you!
The Express Lunch is a great deal: 4 little courses, lots of variety. Decor reminiscent of modern Japan.
Loved the music...dishes are among the best in the city.
Great service and quality food. Server made excellent suggestions. We were promptly seated and waited on. Food was remarkable. The restaurant itself was very busy but service didn’t suffer and atmosphere was very comfortable. Highly recommend.
Absolutely the best service you can get in a restaurant. I was very impressed and pleased.
Food was also as good as it gets for the price point.
Week sushi to price value
Took my girlfriend to use our birthday bucks, amazing food, fast service, almost too fast! We were in and out in under an hour!
Amazing sushi and the service was top notch. The menu is very deceiving as the description of the contents of the sushi rolls are minimal and don’t describe how amazing they really are.... we didn’t know how much of a treat we were in for!
Overall, the food was very tasty with the exception of the Maki. Appetizers, waygu skewers all great but the Maki rolls were very basic and just kind of nothing.
Laid back, hip atmosphere. Great music, awesome service, incredible food! Loved the music and staff vibes. Will be back when visiting Chicago again and have already recommended
The sushi was fantastic even though a bit pricey. Good treat yourself place.
Ask for Maria
We had a wonderful experience at Sushi-San. The friendly greeters at the door set the tone for the night. The friendly staff, quick service and delicious food made this a great night. We will definitely be back. Thank you!!
the food was good, but for that price the service and atmosphere should have been better. It was loud, and we could not hear each other talk. We can hear the table next to us much louder. Also, the chairs are not comfortable. We were thinking of doing Omakase, but once we set down on the wooden stools, we knew we could't stay for more than an hour...
Fantastic food! Best sushi I’ve had in quite some time
Very good sushi. Great attentive service
Food was subpar for the price and portions. Waiter was nice but the restaurant was very packed and loud. They should also advise patrons in advance that they have $15 valet to avoid $37 parking around the corner.
First time at Sushi SAN, and was not let down. Atmosphere was fitting for both a casual group to have a good time with good food or a nice date night spot. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and was able to point out some of the more popular dishes and recommendations. For the location in River North, prices were not over the top, either. With an appetizer and main course MEGA between the two of us, we left comfortably full! Can't wait to come back for another try.
afternoon and place was fairly empty but open table had no spots. went 2 hr early from open reservation and no problems seated. ate mega - great presentation andvalue.
Ate here with my son. Very trendy - it was dark and loud. Our server was nothing special. The rolls were bizarre. The nigiri was blah. Expected much more based on the price.
The food is amazing and the service is outstanding!
While visiting Chicago I wanted to have some local sushi. This place had excellent reviews, and they are accurate. I was treated very well from the moment I arrived, even though I was a solo diner. All the staff took time to make sure I had what I needed. The food was outstanding - extremely fresh fish served in ways that highlight the best of the variety. I hope to return next time I'm in Chicago.
Best place we ate at in Chicago. The seaweed salad was delicious and inventive. The tuna belly nigiri was out of this world. By far one of the best peices I've ever had. Great service, great menu, great drinks; all while listening to great rap music. I would describe this joint as a new take on old favorites. We will definitely be back.
The thank you cocktail was awesome, came in a Chinese to go container and was delicious! Sushi was amazing, not a huge selection, but was top notch. This is my new favorite place for sushi in River North
Fun, modern sushi restaurant. Incredibly fresh sushi and some tasty unique items that everyone will love. Great service and vibrant atmosphere. Highly recommend. We’ll certainly be back. Plenty of great menu items for those not keen on sushi. Loved the cocktails too.
They use the tiniest amount of fish in the rolls
The host and waiter were great 😇
Awesome sushi, service and atmosphere! Our seating requirements were also honored!
Great place. Will visit again!
It had to have been 80+ degrees inside the restaurant. The heat killed our appetites - especially for sushi served too warm. It colored the entire experience negatively.
Had reservations for 730 and got seated at 8... with 5 open tables around. Looked like this hosts first day on the job..
Despite our being one of the first tables to arrive for lunch, the Kitchen was extreme slow. Our server (Alfredo) didn’t keep us updated, so we felt silly waiting there. We had to flag him down too much to get his attention.
Food was excellent (most importantly), and I’m hopeful management will figure out how improve the service.
Great food and service! The waiter was extremely helpful, and the whole experience was wonderful.
