I'm gonna buck the trend and give Tatami a 3. It deserves a 3.5, but TA doesn't allow half points, so i gave it a 3. The setting is nice and modern, with pleasant mood music in the background. I got the Teriyaki Beef box. The beef was delicious, and the rice was very good, but the sides were reasonable... More

I'm not a big fan of salmon, but the special roll they have 'salmon cheviche' is amazing. Thin sliced lemon on top of the roll makes perfect balance with salmon. Definitely going back!!!

They must have done a remodeling, all the decor looked new and modern. Outside was totally unnoticeable strip mall appearance, though. Did a couple of plates and all were excellent.

May look like a whole in the the restaurant, but dinning experience is way above average! I have eaten sushi many times before. I use to be the kinda person that bought it from Safeway or your local mart. Well that all changed after I went to Tatami's! The ingredients are so tasteful, I know its fresh. The display on...

Easy to drive by in this Glenview strip mall, Tatami promises fresh sushi and they really deliver! The restaurant is beautifully appointed with white table clothes and lovely china. There is a small bar area if you like to have cocktails while waiting for friends. Our server was very attentive and patient as we ask many questions. She double checked... More

We do not regularly go to Sushi restaurants but when Groupon "made me an offer I couldn't refuse," I took advantage to make our first visit to Tatami. This restaurant is located in a very non-descript strip mall on one of Glenview's main streets, Waukegan Road. We went on a Friday and had a 6:30 reservation. When we promptly arrived,... More

This gem in Glenview is easy to miss when driving down but find it and you are in store for something fresh and clean. Seaweed salad, miso soup were standard but the lunch special comes with edamame which was a pleasant surprise. My coworker liked her dragon roll and the decor. Its a nice find in Glenview and not too... More

My husband and I used our Groupon last night at Tatami and really loved it! They have a varied menu, something for everyone, and overheard the waitress saying "if there is something you want we will make it for you!" I noticed that there were even two choices for LC (low carbs as opposed to low calories). We asked our... More

I live there but hadn't visited for a while. The restaurant is fancier and the prices have gone up considerably. There are better sushi restaurants within comfortable driving distance.

The sushi is very good, it's not like other sushi places where all the sushi rolls taste the same because they put the same kind of sauce on each roll. The sushi are very fresh and the wait staff are very friendly.
