Sat at the bar and service was excellent. Oysters were fresh and delicious. Miso soup with seafood was a creative take on my favourite soup when eating sushi. Lobster tail was phenomenal. Highly recommend!

Waited for service for 20 minutes after being seated and only getting water. Expected better service and was hoping to, at least, try the food. Good luck to anyone trying to have a meal while visiting Chicago!
