Our favorite lunch spot!
Sushi was good, not great. Mushrooms on the grill we're tasty. Wine list was small. Overall a pretty good value.
Restaurant was crazy loud and overstimulating. Lots of TV's and music was loud (great 80's and 90's tracks, for what it's worth).
Fun place for a bigger group. Not a place to go if you want any chance of a conversation.
Arriving there we were seated and noticed that having a conversation was going to be challenging. Because of the unique curvature of the ceiling, the acoustics were amplified. The music was way too loud for a restaurant. And the choice in music was much to be desired especially for a sushi restaurant. So with loud music comes loud conversations which in turn made it difficult to talk to person across the table. The food was just okay there are a lot of offerings and a bit higher price point. I don’t mind spending more for good sushi but there was nothing special that would bring us back. I’m not saying to stay away-different strokes for different folks.
Great food and atmosphere. Great place for date night and groups.
Wonderful service, great food! Love this place so much. BYOB option is appreciated
Favorite sushi place in Wicker Pk/Bucktown! Food delicious but most of all service & staff kind and attentive!
Good food, quick service, great service from entering restaurant. Got us in early for our reservation! good cocktails!
Loved it! The sushi was excellent, loved the vibe of the place. Will be back!!
Service excellent & very friendly. Food delish!
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.
Service was not great but the sushi was delicious
Great food for great price.
Place was very busy, service was a tiny bit slow.
All in all it was a great experience.
Really liked the buy one get one half off saki. It was Valentine’s Day so it was busy but service was really slow
Love this place. Best bites of food imaginable. Great music. Still get to watch some TV as well.
Awesome service!! Great food... couldn’t be happier!
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.
Went during restaurant week. Food was amazing!! Spicy miso soup was perfect during the polar vortex. I loved the pork belly bao. The waiters were very friendly and prompt. Will definitely be coming back.
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
Excellent food, service and sake menu. Their signatures roles are creative and delicious. The sake menu is extensive and has options at all price points. Robert our server was super too!
Great food, service was awesome...I just don’t know why their bench style seating is so cramped! I barely had room to breathe
Excellent service and delicious food!
Enso had absolutely incredible sushi options. My mom said it was the best she ever had.
Food was outstanding, we went there on a whim and could not have left happier. The server was very kind and helped suggest some of the best rolls they have. Would definitely invite more people to join us next 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.
Enso was great! Excellent food, excellent service.
Always a pleasure dining at Enso.
Great service and food quality. Highly recommend.
Great food!! Will definitely be back!
Love this place!! The romper & summer rolls are delish.
Excellent cuisine. The pork belly app was incredible. Great sushi selection. Cool vibe.
Creative variations on sushi, good service, and a great location. I’ll visit again.
Great sushi and date spot!!
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.
The food was delicious! Cool atmosphere, little too pricey.
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.
This restaurant lost its touch, they used to be great when opened.
