What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.4

Excellent sushi in an unlikely spot. This tiny restaurant at the bottom of the Hilton hotel on Mies van der Rohe Way street is worth a trip for any real sushi fan.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

The items at Mirai Sushi are all of high quality but the variety is a bit limited. The prices are high but are merited by the quality.

Food was okay, nothing special. Only real disappointment was fried rice, but this is not an inexpensive restaurant. Unless you are staying at the hotel and are too tired to venture out, there are much better options, some within walking distance. Service not super friendly or efficient, but not terrible.

We have eaten at the Wicker park Marai many times. We love the food and the service there was fine. The service last night was awful. We ordered miso soup and seaweed salad when we sat down received the soup got our seaweed salad about halfway into the meal after asking for it 3 times. They brought my husbands sushi order then took it away then returned approximately 25 minutes later with the correct order. They did not end up charging us for the salad but we had to repeatedly ask for water. Pretty much beg for attention for service.

This is our favorite Sushi restaurant, period. The sushi is clean and always fresh. There are also interesting choices of other dishes (shrimp togorashi, bin cho salad, fried rice, tuna tuna shrimp maki roll and more, even the seaweed salad is great). The Golf Coast location is small, in a good way. Best to have a reservation. Wouldn’t go with more than 6 people. The sakitini is a light refreshing martini. The service is personal and friendly. Excellent.

The food was good but not the caliber of the original in Wicker Park. The atmosphere is small, stark and cold.
Though I didn't love the restaurant environment, the sole reason I won't return is service.
The Server was cold and seemed annoyed from the start of our meal. We rarely had her stop at our table and we waited with dirty plates in front of us for more than 15 minutes at the end of dinner...had to call her over for our check.
Though Open Table accepted the reservation it was a Monday evening and when I put the address in my GPS it came up "Closed." When I told the Host what had happened he corrected me that is was the Wicker Park address that was closed on Monday...he should have looked up what I was telling him to see for himself vs. correcting me and I'm sure given the lack of attention that issue has not been resolved online.
I was entertaining my boss who is a sometime sushi eater, this was not the experience I had anticipated given my typically stellar service and attention at the Division location.

We decided to try this sushi restaurant because we were staying at the Hilton so it was convenient and it had good reviews. When we first looked at the menu I wasn't sure what to to think since it wasn't a typical sushi menu with 30 different standard rolls to choose from. I'm so glad it wasn't! The sashimi was unbelievably fresh, and just melted in your mouth. The waiter was attentive and provided suggestions to us throughout the meal. His recommendations were not the highest priced items, and he recommended trying them from light to heavy. Everything was fantastic, highly recommended!

Hmm, I am not sure how I feel about Mexican sushi chefs....there has been a change in ethnicity
since my last visit. Somehow, I expect Japanese sushi chefs. What would Jiro think? The years of training just to make the perfect rice.... somehow, a few months behind the sushi bar does not compute. I will take a pass....I prefer Japanese sushi chefs.

While I wasn't impressed, my wife thought it was very good. The staff didn't seem to be very organized and it took forever to get our order in. The people a few tables down came in much later, and was served well before we were. The first plate of sushi looked different that what I thought I ordered but I ate it anyway. As the night wore on, my wife and I became aware that the first dish I ate was someone else's order! Oh well.....I think that the quality is dependent on what is ordered. In the dark ages when I use to live in Chicago, seafood was always a "dicey" order given that shipping is not what it is like today. Overall, I would probably give it another try the next time I'm in Chicago

Mirai Sushi - Gold Coast, in general, is a very good place when you want to try specialty rolls and a great variety of sashimi & nigiri. Sometimes service decreases a bit when its busy, but its normal. Since I come here very often, sometimes the host can get moody and my friends and I feel uncomfortable. It's a very small restaurant, I think around 24 seats in the whole restaurant so reserving a spot for a table is preferable, especially on weekends.

It is too bad that an exceedingly rude server made this a miserable experience. While the maki was top notch, the actions of the server were not only unprofessional, but downright rude. Inattentive, constantly running into the table and myself while serving, and spending additional time on other tables while ignoring our needs, I am not sure the exceptional food was worth the issues. Unfortunate. In the end, after paying, we chose to sit and enjoy our conversation, and our server took our bill holder back, looked inside, threw it, and glared at my guest in anger at, presumably, the 15% tip.
