Great food, good service. Nice calming environment.

Worth the visit. Nice wine list and excellent food. A calming retreat in the otherwise bustling River North neighborhood.

Whilst visiting Chicago on business I was recommended Naha - definitely glad I went as had a great evening. It happened to be Chicago Restaurant Week so I went for the 3 course option and added extra the Foie Gras and Oysters. So it went as follows: Oysters: Yum! I was dubious about the freshness but they were fantastic. Named... More

I gad the opportunity to visit Naha during Restaurant Week and so glad I did! The entire evening, from drinks at the bar to the post-dessert bonbons, exceeded expectations. Even the customers at the next table joined in the fun, offering us tastes of their risotto and recommending the dishes they found particularly delectable, such as the lamb bouregi appetizer....

Lucked out and was in Chicago during restaurant week and got a great three course meal for a reasonable price. While the food was excellent and the service attentive (if not a little too full of itself), I would not venture back for the regular menu as it was overpriced for the quality.

Four friends visited Naha on a Friday evening in early January. Though cold outside, Naha was warm and inviting - such a pleasant place to spend a winter evening in Chicago. The service was friendly, unstuffy and helpful, and the outstanding food never disappoints - this visit we had the scallops, which got rave reviews from my husband and our... More

Naha is clearly one of the best fine dining establishments in River North. The atmosphere is chic but not stuffy with an upscale vibe. The food is contemporary but not overly trendy. Particularly tasty are the soups, seafood dishes and the always interesting assortment of freshly baked breads. Naha is quite expensive but a very fair value compared to other... More

Every December for last 27 years I go to Chicago to do Christmas shopping with my daughters. I have dined in virtually every fine dining spot there over the years--Charlie Trotters,Tru, Alinea, Everest, Spiaggia, Arun et al. The one restaurant that we repeat every year is Naha. It never disappoints. I have on other trips entertained clients there because I... More

Had a business dinner here a couple of weeks ago. My manager had to mortgage the company to get a reservation. She told me they charged a very large sum to her credit card to hold the reservation. That seemed ludicrous, because the dining room was not full at all. There were empty tables the entire time we were dining... More

Three of us had dinner at this restaurant on a recent business trip to Chicago. I came with high expectations, given the fact that I have been to so many highly rated restaurants in Chicago and have NEVER been disappointed. Well, this was the first time I have dined in a top restaurant and didn't enjoy the experience. First, I... More

This is a hidden gem.We have dined here on our last two trips for lunch.Staff is very attentive but not intrusive . A special three course lunch is offered with choices from each category for $26 a bargain. Also Chicagos best burger and hand cut fries.
