Everything was mediocre at best. Would not go there again. Huge disappointment
Great meal from start to finish. We did the meat and fish platters and added apps and sushi. The Brussel sprout chips were great and I’m not a fan of Brussel sprouts. Not noisy so the whole table could talk to each other. Would definitely go back when I’m in Chicago again.
Eddie is the best! The food is always excellent but he makes the experience on another level which makes this our favorite restaurant.
This was my husband's and my first visit to Katana, while taking a mini-vacation to Chicago. WOW ! We were blown away from the superb customer service from the moment we were greeted by our host/hostess and the entire staff greeting us in Japanese! Table service was excellent as was the amazing dishes brought to us. The manager came over to say hello and ask us how our experience was - we told him this was our first visit to Katana but would not be our last. If you have a chance to check out Katana while in Chicago, DO SO! You won't be disappointed!
Music sucked, for was delicious and great service.
Sashimi was sliced to thick, better 3 slices instead of 2.
The maki missed an extra flavour
Miso.marinated black cod needed a lttle more miso
The service was horrible and the suski was not good my wife almost slipped due yo water on the floor. I will never go back there again.
patio music just too loud to actually have a conversation without having to scream across the table. You get used to it, but the music could be more in the background rather than the foreground.
Amazing sushi, crazy professional service. Made my neices birthday extra special. Cant wait to go back
Food is great and service is generally good, but the waiters shamelessly push for the most expensive items on the menu.
Wonderful service and really good food.
food is refresh and service is good. But I am not impressed by any aspects. With this tier I am expecting more. For example, introduce the dish name(fish spicy and from) or provide a clean table(dust on our table). One-time visit.
Phenomenal food and service - our server knew everything about the menu and helped us to navigate it perfectly. Also, they had a DJ and sent out a special treat for my bday. 10/10 would definitely go again!!!
Mark, the manager, was great!
Food and service were great. I
Absolutely amazing, definitely will come back next time I visit!!!
Today’s my birthday and our waitress, Jennifer P, made sure to try her best to not let me enjoy it. She was very short and rude with us for the moment we came in and didn’t smile one time. She didn’t bring us any utensils to eat with. She never came to ask us how our food was. On top of all of that, my boyfriend tried to surprise me with getting a dessert for me and he asked her when I was not there to bring it at the end of the dinner. After we ordered some more food she said “ok so should I bring the dessert after this?” and completely ruined the surprise.

Comfortable spacious dining experience
The food is outstanding
Wide variety of sake
Wait staff was very attentive
Great place to celebrate a birthday, especially with the Rosè fountain! Will definitely be recommending this place to other friends.
Visited my BFF in Chicago so we decided to check this place out...the atmosphere was sexy, music playing and the food was amazing. Truffle Edamame was yummy, as were all the rolls, and our Carnivale dessert was for sure a show stopper.
The Katana Roll, White Lotus Roll and Spciy Taco Roll is absolutely hands down the best sushi roll i've ever eaten. I've dinned all around the world and the Spicy Tako Roll is my idea of what all amazing sushi should taste like. The hamachi and especially the Hanabi were oustanding cold dishes served! The popcorn shrimp in miso glaze and the ribbye-wrapped asparagus in soy mirin sauce were good too. The host went beyond the job of duty and treated my table to an amazing desert, cotton candy lit on fire around the desert which made for an awesome finish to the night. Drinks were great! The server was awesome too! My experience was a win win!!
One of my favorite restaurants! I have been here several times. Delicious food, great drinks, trendy atmosphere, good service. If you like Asian fusion food with a sexy vibe, this is the place for you! I always get the Katana roll, white lotus roll, sea bass skewers, hanabi, and lychee martini. Amazing experience every time!
We got to katana nice and early and we’re able to check out all the amazing things on the happy hour menu. I highly recommend this restaurant for food and drinks. Can’t wait to go back!
Outstanding food, service, location, and interior. My new go-to sushi place in River North!
My husband and I went to Katana for the first time to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary and it was a fabulous experience. Everyone was super friendly and congratulated us. We also got a very comfortable table. We loved every single dish we ordered and will definitely be returning! The dishes we tried were the A5 Wagyu, Toro tartaru, unagi sashimi, tsukiji roll, and carnival dessert. The matcha mule drink and the whiskey was great too. You can tell all the ingredients are super fresh and high quality. A bit expensive for sure but it's totally worth it.
Overall this place is fine but there are so many better places you could go so i say try somewhere else. The service was just ok and considering we were there very early, 6pm reservation, and the restaurant was not nearly full by any means. It just seemed the hosts were only sitting people in our servers section making her very busy while the rest of the place was empty. Strange. The portions are tiny, like really small, but also pretty steep on the price. Food is good just not worth it for what you get vs what you have to pay. Do yourself a favor and skip this place unless you really want to go for the cache of the name and clubstaruante vibe.
Katana was a splendid restaurant experience that we stumbled upon. Everything was wonderful - the ambiance, the staff, the service, the food and the overall experience.
Ambience - large space, very open, spacious and immediately inviting with a very clean and airy vibe about it.
Staff and service - as soon as you walk in, there someone to greet you and take you to your table, give you enough time to look at the order and are so willing to answer any questions we may have had, which were quite a few! Our waitress was very helpful and genuine. She took note of small things such as when we may need to use a fork and knife and would bring it out then or when there was a need to change plates or when the table got a little messy, she got a cloth and cleaned the table like a pro before the other dish would arrive. Secondly, my glass of water never reached half a glass because the server would keep an eye out and refille it quite often. The service was seamless, small details were taken into consideration and they paid attention, this added to the overall experience.
Food - the food was very tasty! The restaurant serves in small plate style, please look at the pictures to see what we ordered. It was clean, simple and very filling.
One thing I wasn’t particularly fond of was the spicy tuna and smashed avocado on fried rice cakes. The rice cakes were very sticky to the teeth and quite heavy, the avocado didn’t add much flavor.
My favorite dishes that I highly recommend are the Seabass Robata skewers and the scallops! They were perfectly cooked and a must try!
Overall, I would visit Katana again. I left the restaurant with a full and satisfied stomach :)
Food was great!! Location was great!! But the restaurant was very hot and the music was dance music and very loud...
The uni and tuna are not fresh and the overall price is not reasonable. I have better options for the price that we paid.
Never disappoints. Food, service, ambiance, all terrific.
Don’t miss the Wagyu. Pricey but worth every bite. Yellowtail with jalapeño is excellent. Finish with the Carnival dessert
Our dinner experience at Katana was excellent! The sashimi & sushi was the freshest and most delicious I had ever tasted and so was the fillet mignon and ribeye.
They also carry SYLTBAR, one of the best premium Prosecco on the market.
Our Waitress Jessica was very knowledgeable and friendly. Mark, manager and GM Dan couldn’t have made as feel more welcomed.
We can’t wait to return to Katana.
Be prepared to have a delicious but expensive meal. Our check totaled $400 with a tip for four people. I’d like to see them provide a larger serving size per dish. The portions are tiny and very expensive.
Service was great and the ambience was great. I did however think it was average quality sushi for above average prices.
A bit pricey for the portions. They are extremely small they’re more like “shareable” foods but everything tasted great
Food was not bad, better sushi places in town. Service was great as well as the ambience
Celebrated a birthday & was very pleased ! Nice birthday dessert & presentation ! Excellent Happy Hour -will definitive back for that ! Dinner was delicious & great server ...enjoyed everything we ordered
We have dined at Katana several times and have always enjoyed the experience. Excellent food. Vast selection of wines and cocktails. The restaurant decor is beautiful and the service is always superb.
It was fabulous!! The food was delicious and the service was outstanding from the hostesses to our cute and sweet waitress.
The service was the highlight for us. From the hostess taking care of a special request to the server who figured us out quick and gave excellent suggestions and checked on us just the right amount.
