Good not Great

This was a tough one. The chef is obviously talented. However, with all the amazing chefs and restaurants in this fine city, there are many factors that go into my rating. I love dining, but this place was a little too stuffy for me. The bar had a nice vibe but it is not a place I would spend... read more

Beautiful space, nice furnishings, gracious staff, decent selection of champagnes by the glass. The food was.....competent, but nothing really stood out. The soup was bland, and the consistency had a hint of gumminess. The fish was also bland, though cooked well (not dry or tough). The doughnut dessert was actually disappointing. The saving grace was our server, Scott, who kept... More

Dined at Naha for the first time and it was a great experience. Service was attentive but not intrusive, and our meals arrived tasty and hot. We all had the Restaurant Week tasting menu, and the portions were perfect. Loved the chef's attention to texture (e.g. risotto with pepitas). Great ambiance- the minute we sat down and looked around, we... More

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
