Really liked the place. First time going. Food/Service was excellent. There a table of rowdy kids at the large table next to us by the front door which was extremely annoying and ruined the romantic vibe, but not really the restaurants fault.
Had a great meal and nice experience. We are keeping a keto diet and this restaurant has good keto options
A successful evening!
Kansaku is just a truly great place. I love my Salmon Teriyaki, which I get most times I go. My wife and daughter both really liked their dishes also. We got there VERY early so for a few minutes we had the place to ourselves. Fpod and Service both great.
I ordered raw tuna, salmon, snapper(I think) and the pristine freshness was remarkable! Will do it again soon
This is our favorite spot for sushi. The atmosphere is warm, the staff is friendly and attentive and the food is consistently delicious.
Sushi was definitely not fresh. Quality of ingredients and preparation was not what I’ve come to expect. Disappointing.
Great overall experience - will definitely be back and nice to know there is another better-than-average sushi spot available in Evanston!
How to describe this dining experience our 7 o’clock reservation was not honored until about 720
After we sat down the first appetizer brought to us was stone cold in the center the mixed drinks were awful to be fair the next appetizer had a hair in it and our final strike was when the beef and asparagus came out lukewarm we then asked for our check and walked to next door to bar Louie or we had a great meal with a wonderful attentive waitress named Jenelle and enjoyed ourselves immensely
This is a great go to spot bc food is very consistent and not too noisy.
My favorite neighborhood romantic night go to. Great sushi, sake... oyster shooters!
Wonderful meal from start to finish! Sushi for the guys and Teriyaki Chicken and Salmon for the gals. Great conversation with great food!
Food was great!
Food was good. However, what they are trying to pass as Japanese Gyoza is more like a Korean Mandoo product. Other than that, the agedashi tofu was excellent along with the Tempura udon. The sushi roll was good as well.
The bacon wrapped scallops are amazing. Presentation of all of the food was stellar. Nothing was sub-par.
The food was very fresh and tasty. The presentation was lovely and innovative.
Food was good , service was very good , nice location , nothing too fancy
Food was terrific. Service attentive but not overbearing. There was a large party nearby and I was worried about noise fortunately there was nothing to worry about.
Great food and service
This restaurant is in our neighborhood and we eat here often and get takeout as well. On this occasion we were joined by friends as it is their favorite restaurant in Evanston. The agedashi tofu is our favorite appetizer . The sushi and maki are consistently good choices. Udon noodle soup makes a warming entree in the winter. Service is almost always good. Everyone who works there is very friendly. Consistent in every category.
It's a wonderful spot for an entire family that enjoys an diverse menu. We will be back!
Food was great. We dine here many times, 6 of us, 2 children and 4 adults and this was the first time we have ever been charged an automatic grat for 6ppl. Anywhere else that is based on 6 adults. When asked it seemed to be a hassle to take off. Very disappointed and this is my fav restaurant
Delicious, as always! Great presentations!
All food we enjoyed was of expected quality and creativity. The service couldn’t be better. No kids options on the menu (we were looking for a kids bento box).
Nice food and good place to gather for family.
Another perfect dinner at Kansaku. Calamari and Gyoza appetizers, followed by two orders of Salmon Teriyaki, one order of Pork Katsu and an order consisting of Kamikaze and Spicy Tuna rolls delivered to the table and devoured with enthusiasm! Wonderful dinner and evening with friends.
I was looking for a Japanese restaurant I hadn't been to. We really liked this. The food was good and if you had certain sushi the prices were good. some others seemed high. a lot of good choices of appetizers and first courses. i had miso soup, edaname and a soft shell crab appetizer . they were all really good and that was enough food. my friend wanted to share dessert. the only food that wasn't really good was the chocolate lava cake( they call it something else). it was not good. too dry. everything else was delicious and decent sized. I recommend this restaurant.
Outstanding food, presentation, and value.
Flavorful, beautifully presented. Great food. We had been talking about trying Kansaku for some time, and had somehow not gotten around to it. We were very happy to finally go, and look forward to our next visit.
Great food and service.
Wonderful treasure of a restaurant in Evanston.
As always, excellent service and consistently very good sushi and cuisine preparation and presentation.
They were running behind and we were seated 20 min after our reservations. They were very apologetic about the wait due partly that there was a party of 10 that had a reservation for the same time. They offered us a seat at the bar but I really didn’t want to sit there because they were so busy, I would recommend some chairs off to the side.
The food was excellent and fresh. The service was also excellent.
Went for a spur of the moment date night with my husband and it was excellent. The soft shell crab appetizer was an awesome surprise, and the maki rolls were fantastic.
Service was attentive, food was delicious. We started with vegetable goyoza which was great. The maki rolls were very good, as was the vegetable udon noodles with tofu. We'll definitely be back!
My mom and I went there after a concert for both Mother’s Day and my birthday.
Wonderful dinner with friends. We had an assortment of appetizers — Tuna Poke, Calamari and Gyoza — followed by dinner choices — Chicken Teriyaki, Salmon Teriyaki and two Maki rolls, Kamikaze and Spicy Crunch. Everything was delicious! Love this place!
Kansaku is a reliably good neighborhood place in downtown Evanston. The food is delicious, consistent and reasonably priced, the atmosphere is pleasant and the service good. A great place for a weekday dinner. Also specials on wine on Wednesday - I had a decent chardonnay for $5.
