Be prepared for the wait but there is a great place for a drink down the street and they will call your phone when there is room. Be sure to sit at the bar if you can.

This is a tiny Japanese restaurant. But the food tasted great. The problem is that the price is very high. You should make a reservation for this restaurant.

After arriving into Chicago from a long road trip from San Francisco we decided to check this place out. Chef Mitch moved to Chicago from Monterey and offers a creative and delicious menu. We ordered four special rolls between the two of us and the most memorable was "the Pig and the Sea" roll with salmon, spicy scallop, bacon, yamahgoboh,... More

I ordered gyozas and three different kinds of nigiri and it was all delicious. The restaurant is conveniently located near the stop of bus lines 22 and 36. If I visit Chicago again, I will definitely go to eat there again.

Toro Sushi has the best sushi in Lincoln Park, and perhaps in Chicago. Mitch is the sushi master, and he not only makes great rolls, sushi, and sashimi, he is very entertaining. It's a tiny place, with no reservations and long waits. They will take your name and cell phone number so you can go to a nearby bar for... More

I have lived in Japan, Hawaii, LA, and have had plenty of sushi. As a kid, we used to eat at the old Hashikin on Clark. For old time sake, we decided to eat Japanese in the area. The sushi was terrible, I even spit some out, as I couldn't finish chewing it. Most of it was slightly frozen (unacceptable),... More

In a very small restaurant, lives amazing sushi! Small bar in front of the main chef who is quite friendly, seats about 10 people. The restaurant holds about 12 small tables. Waited about an hour but the service when seated was efficient and very helpful. BYOB is great. Oh my God was a terrific sushi as was the Spicey Taco... More

I don't know much about sushi's history in Chicago. And growing up in Toronto and London (Ontario, not England), followed by moves to Atlanta and New York, the question surfaces - can you really blame me? One of the most difficult things in life is to step outside a comfort zone, especially with something as deeply personal as a meal.... More
