Cute room with very comfortable chairs. Had edamame that was steamed perfectly and salted just right. The tempura was light and crunchy. Hubby loved the spicy miso. We had many pieces of sashimi as well as The Lake Shore Drive, Summer and Tokyo Sunset rolls that were all perfect and very fresh. Mango mochi was served split for ease of consumption. Our server was very sweet and kept our table clean. Loved it here. We will definately be back.

This is the second time I go here for dinner. Food is delicious and aptly priced! On weekends noise levels can be pretty high, making it difficult to hold a conversation. However, during the week days it’s fine. Ambiance is perfect for a date night.

Food was really good! We went for restaurant week and were able to try a little bit of everything. The staff was super accommodating and helpful with any questions/requests we had. The room is a bit loud but overall good ambiance. Will be going back!

Came here for restaurant week. The moment we arrived, the entire experience felt rushed. While our food came quickly, we were receiving 2-3 entries at once. There were times when we were still eating and they tried to take away our plates.We understand that the restaurant was crowded, but it definitely prevented my friends and I from truly enjoying ourselves. Nice staff and decent food, just not sure if i'll ever return.

We attended during restaurant week. Our waitress was extremely friendly and spent the time to listen to our tables debate. The restaurant was very busy but my table agreed the meal ease beyond the deal and was the best sushi we had had in quite some time

Waiter was very rude. There was a hair inside a sushi roll. The waiter took it to chef and to manager. They deducted is was mine. Completely different hair and how i'd get it rolled in the sushi is ridiculous. They realized that and took it off my bill. I appreciate this but i'm not going back. Too many other good sushi places to go to.

Literally my favorite sushi restaurant in the city, if not one of my favorite restaurants altogether. The whole team is great and happy to accommodate. Sushi always tastes fresh. And let’s be honest, the dopest music as well. Must try.

It’s just far too loud. There needs to be something done to bring the noise down so that you can have a conversation with your dinner companion.

This was our second time at Enso, but likely the last. We literally couldn't get service. Lots of staff running around, but none of them would stop by our table. We went to the bar to order a drink, but even that didn't get much response. We eventually left. Not at all sure why a restaurant would treat customers this way.

Was slightly disappointed with the pork belly bun. The bun tasted like it was over-microwaved and was hard to bite into (not soft at all). The pork inside was amazing.. I wished it compared to the bun. The sushi was very good and fresh but slightly overpriced. I wish the booths had cushions because its very stiff and not very comfortable, I had to switch to a table that had cushioned chairs.

The staff was decent As they forgot one of our rolls. There were tv’s everywhere which I found to cheapen the experience and was not expected as the picture of the interior did not show any TVs. Over all the sushi was good and the service was good but not worth a return visit in my opinion. The music was very enjoyable.

Sunday night around 6:30 it was quiet which was nice for conversation. Sizzling rib app was tasty. Pork belly buns a must. Loved Mad House and Romper rolls. Kimchi and pork belly rice and soup good. Soup needed to add a bit more ingredients. Topped off dinner with chocolate lava cake which comes with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Wonderful. Service was gracious and exceptional!! Will be back.

We went there on Sunday afternoon so the place was kinda empty. The service was super friendly though. I've ordered a drink called Despacito and it was really refreshing. We haven't tried any appetizers. We just ordered maki rolls. All of them were really delicious! Especially Mad House one which was recommended by our super friendly server. I would definitely go there again.
