I have a pretty bad intolerance to gluten, so traveling can be tricky sometimes when you have to eat out. We read the reviews and it came up as gluten free friendly online. So we thought, let's see. After a chilli walk because our taxi dropped us off too far away, I was ready to rest and warm up. We... More

I really wanted sushi when we were in Chicago and we happened to walk past Friends one morning. After reading reviews we made a reservation. A lot of reviews complain about the size of the restaurant. It is definitely small, but we had a great table in the corner so we weren't bothered by the size. It's a cool looking... More

Our meal was really, really good. The place is very small and very loud. We were there on a Friday night right at peak dinner time though so another time may have been quieter. Make reservations.

came in just before closing on a Saturday night-selction was varied-drinks creative; peartini -( pear martini was lovely) Sort of a strange luncheonette vibe but sushis were good, service was excellent, and a good centrally located spot

I always grab lunch or dinner at Friends when I am in Chicago on business and staying at the Peninsula across the street. The fish is fresh, service is sweet and they are quick (or slow) depending upon your needs. Only thing I noticed this time is they have a bit of an annoying knat/tiny fly issue. I was sitting...

The sushi options were awesome, incredible rolls and prices were very good. Service was quick and we enjoyed dining at the small outdoor patio. Definitely recommend.

The space is small and has a unique decorating to it but the sushi is excellent. Service is very helpful and attentive. Sushi is fresh and creative offering items across the spectrum. Great spot for lunch and only a block of Michigan Ave.

We were looking for japanese food and we choose this one. Great experience. Not so familiarizated with some recipes of the menu but well advised by the service. We tasted some "not tipical" maki roll for us and where delicious! I dont live there but I would go there if I had it in my city!!

My boyfriend and I were in from out of town and looking on Open Table for places near our hotel that had open tables on Saturday night. We stumbled across Friends Sushi and decided to try it. We were pleasantly surprised! It is a small place but has an option for outdoor seating. The staff was very friendly, and the... More

Happened upon this place after reading some yelp reviews of restaurants in the area. Everyone in our group loved their food. Service was great, and the fish was fresh. I absolutely love Uni, but it is often not fresh, I was very pleased to find out they had just received their fresh uni that morning, and it was super yummy.... More
