Worst dinner ever. Tasteless food and rude servers. They even yelling at customers. The food is also pricey.

We went to Shine on Armitage a while back and liked it, and this was our first visit to the new location on Webster. We really loved it. It’s large and spacious, with outdoor eating if the weather permits. The decor is lovely and interesting...with funky shaped lights and cool art on the walls. But the best thing was the food. The menu gave us so many choices, it was hard to choose. But we narrowed it down and all of us loved our meals. The service was excellent as well, very attentive, and they had no problem making ingredient substitutions as restaurants often do. And the meals, while very tasty, are also large. So we all had take home to enjoy another night. Highly recommended.More

It doesn't look a bad place and I'm still wondering why it was empty. Anyway, I tried noodles and to be honest I expected more savory flavor. Price is ok and also the service is good. I like that there was a lot of space...among tables but i wish there were more peopleMore

I have always loved this restaurant but had never been to the new location (yeah it was like a 10 year hiatus due to logistics). I went recently on a Friday night with a group of friends and it was just as good as I...remembered. Appetizers were great and so was the sushi. My bowl of shrimp fried rice was enough for 3 meals. Everybody loved their meal including the super picky eater of the group. I pray it doesn’t take me another 10 years to return!More

This is a hidden gem in Chicago! There are so many sushi restaurants in Chicago and we have tried almost everyone, we always come back to Shine as our favorite!!! It's in the heart of Lincoln Park, always fresh and just delicious, mouth watering actually!!...The service is as outstanding as the food!!! They will make any accommodation to a role, always attentive but not disruptive!! You are greeted with a warm welcoming smile and you are always treated as a special guest even when the restaurant is packed! They also have a full non sushi menu which makes even better when you want to go somewhere that fits everyone's taste! Even if you are staying downtown it's worth a cab ride to try this neighborhood gem!!!!!More

We've been with grandchildren several times. Favorite is sharing orders of pot stickers and hot edamame, then one large dish with rice. Staff is friendly and welcoming, even though this is not a big ticket sale. Place is spotless, takes reservations.

I had not been here for a while and went there this weekend with my wife and daughter and her fiance.We had some sauvignon blanc and shared edamame and a delicious chilean sea bass appetizer. My wife and I shared the yakisoba noodle dish with...chicken and vegetables which was very tasty, as well as some delicious vegetable sushi. My daughter and her fiance got various sushi- spicy tuna, flaming maki, niku maki and honey roll and liked it all. The service was very good also. I recommend it highly.More

I've been eating at Shine for years. It actually had a more upscale feel when it was on Armitage, but I like the relaxed atmosphere of the property on Webster. Their speciality roles are always amazing (try the Honey Roll) and I love their sashimi....Even delivery/take out is good. I've only had one instance of "bad" sushi (some hamachi sashimi was definitely fishy), but considering the number of times I've eaten there, that's not bad at all. It's pretty much the only sushi restaurant I regularly return to outside of Butterfly. The service can be a bit off, so just make sure to flag your server when you need something.More

We enjoyed the Thai and sushi food here. I had a vegetarian sushi which was good and I had chicken pad thai which was very good and a very large portion. I had enough left over for my daughter to take home for lunch or...dinner the next day. The others had a variety of sushi and thought it was very good. Good service and atmosphere.More

Nice and comfy with great service, but the sushi rolls I had were just OK.
