Delicious! – I love this place and in fact have been back twice! I highly suggest the dragon roll or the white dragon roll - absolutely delicious!
Fantastic service as well! Can't wait to go back!
Best Sushi in Chicago – This is the best place to go for sushi in Chicago. It is authentic, fresh, and clean.
Vegetarians will enjoy the spicy sweet potato sushi.
Non-vegetarians should try the house specialty: the White Dragon roll.
Lychee sorbet is an excellent dessert.
this place rocks! – i give this place 3 thumbs up! they surpass my expectations and wowed me with their food. their miso soup is simply amazing! very reminiscent of Japan and it keeps you a little bit full enough while you wait for your sushi to be served, flavor is clean and very good to the palate. love their maki and sashimi, set in very cute presentations and very, very fresh. their tempura is cooked perfectly, crispy on the outside and soft in the inside and very flavorful inside and out. the ambiance is also nice, low lighting that is good for dates and the place may be busy at times but you can still enjoy your food and have decent talks with your date without having to shout over the din.
Best Sushi in Town! – Coast is our favorite sushi restaurant in all of Chicago, and we have tried many! The best part is that you can bring your own wine, we always pack our favorite bottles, that way you know you are going to love your wine for the night.
The quality of the sashimi and maki rolls is fantastic. I can't get enough of the crunchy spicy tuna rolls! Everytime we dine there we find something new to try, usually reccomended by our waiter.
Worst Sushi and service in town – I don't know how this restaurant be famous!
The fish is not fresh at all and the service is really poor.
The servers don't care me at all and I have to wait for more than 30 minutes to be served with the damn fish!
Cut my head me if I have to go back again!!!
Great f*%$ing sushi! – My wife and I dropped in to this place last night. Fantastic. I eat a lot of sushi . . . a lot and I thought the freshness here was bar none. We started out with the kampachi carpaccio. (The server incorrectly identified it as tuna, it's not tuna, it's its own type of fish. However, almost everyone makes this mistake about kampachi. But a sushi place should be on its game!) We also had the seafood soup and the miso. I highly, highly, highly recommend the seafood soup. (I think that Americans tend to forget that traditionally, Japanese cuisines are always supposed to start with soup and small plates in order to reduce the amount of $$$ sushi that one consumes in a sitting.)
Service was very nice. (Young brunette female with short hair, closely styled to the scalp.) She was very tolerant of me. I was tired and cranky and she did not react to this, instead she anticipated my wife's needs and asked her if she would like soup as well which she did and hadn't thought to order it--truly the mark of a great server. She also checked in often, which I like, but did not bother us with idle or personal chatter.
No complimentary fruit for dessert which is generally characteristic of a sushi meal. Ah, but that was my only complaint. I thought the price was great we had 2 soups, carpaccio, 2 pieces blue fin nigiri, and 5 maki rolls for only $79. I will be back.
Rather disappointed – Ahhhhh, where to begin. I feel like the whole experience was bad from the moment we pulled up to the curve and were ignored by the valet (really?). The hostess seemed rather apathetic as we walked in; promptly followed by an abrupt waiter who asked us "this is it"? We were seated and presented with a table rendering a Chinese "all you can eat buffet". Our despondent waiter took our orders with complete ambivalence to our queries.
The food was marginal. Seaweed salad; not good. I don?t understand how they can legitimately refer to their "Ceviche Maki" as that, seeing how there is a relative absence of "ceviche" in the maki. See aforementioned for my opinion of the "wasabi roll". The Unagi was over as cooked as our waiter was rude. The mochi was good. No complaints.
In regards the BYOB; make sure that you bring your own wine glasses a well. We were forced to drink an 01 Cab out of Japanese rocks glasses; what a crime.
Bottom line, only go to Coast if you are looking for phenomenal quality Sushi. The fish is fresh and clean.
Unimpressed – I live just a few blocks from Coast and I have been dying to try it. I put my name in and was told it would be a 45 minute wait. After 45 minutes, I checked in with the hostess and was told we were the next table to be seated. AN HOUR LATER we were finally given a table. The wait was unacceptable!!! Once seated, it was another 15 minutes before our server corked our wine. The glassware was dirty and our server was never around. If I am going to wait that long for sushi, I would much rather drive across town to Toro Sushi, where a 45 minute wait means 45 minutes--not 2 hours.
Had it delivered to work. – I thought the sashimi was excellent. large fresh pieces. The guy who took the order was very nice and so was the delivery guy. So, I can't comment on the restaurant it self. I have never been. The sashimi on the other hand. I would definitely recommend it.
