Kumiko is certainly a unique and classy place for Japanese-inspired drinks. The service is impeccable and you can tell that everything from the decor to the service was diligently crafted. The drinks are unique and tasty and the server has extensive knowledge and will make recommendations to you based on your preferences. I think the food is pricier than it should be - you should not come here hungry. The food are just small bites, good as a snack but don't count it for your full meal. Looking forward to coming again and trying more drinks. More

Great local joint. Food isn’t anything fancy, but it’s hearty and sticks to the bones! No beers on draught, if that matters to you. I visited from out of town before going to a concert. They complied with a special request on my food without complaint and made it happen. I would go to this down-to-earth place again. More

We ate here for our final dinner during our family vacation to Chicago and couldn't have asked for a better way to finish off our trip. Food and service were fantastic and we loved being able to taste so many different dishes with the small plates menu. My mother-in-law grew up in a Jewish home and the halva dessert took her right back to her childhood, leading her to share some special family memories with us. Thank you Aba staff for an unforgettable evening. More

Staff was very friendly, parking was available, food was delicious. We arrived a little early for our reservations so we were encouraged to have a seat at the bar while we waited. The bartender was super knowledgeable and helpful on selection of drinks. The hostess came and got us when our seat was ready. It was a perfect night until we were seated. The neighboring table was just a slight too close for comfort. Other than that, everything from the lighting, to the sound and level of music was excellent. More

Our family (me, my husband and our 3 young adult children) were looking for a place to meet and grab dinner in the West Loop. We found Green Street Local on OpenTable. Not only did the reviews look solid but it is sometimes hard to find a restaurant that is fun, has great food and also has food that is acceptable to an 18 year old male and a 26 year old female who always wants a healthy choice. Green Street Local delivered on all fronts. The food was excellent -- fresh and tasty. The service was outstanding. The ambiance was a great. I anticipate that we will be returning often. If I lived in that neighborhood, I would be a regular. More

Great spot to have a rooftop experience without having to worry about the weather. It’s got huge windows so you can see a 180-degree view and then 2 open patios on either side.

The food is still as good as it was at the previous location for those who always ask that question. Location was not very busy for a Saturday night, however occasionally it took a few times to get a waitress attention for service. My only complaint is that the booth seats although comfortable are a little to low for the table height. Overall it’s a great place for comfort food and I will definitely be back. More
