Magen I made reservation asked to not be at a high top and when we got there that is where we were seated and told there were no other table options. Service was great but we did have to wait more than usual for food. However good was excellent and our server was great
Good. Audrey was good. Busboys were way too anxious taking plates as last bite was being taken off. Makes a casual relaxed meal feel rushed and uncomfortable.
I loved Shakou it was just a bit loud
Love the food but the noise level is too high while dining. You have to scream to talk
Love this place.
Great modern and upscale decor. Food was excellent; fresh, creative and great portions. I would highly recommend it in the area for great sushi. It was a little on the noisy side, but manageable. The establishment is also well situated and quite large, capable of accommodating larger groups.
It was the perfect night! We sat upstairs. Loved the food and drink. Will be back!
Very very loud.
We had reservations and were seated right away. I almost always order the same thing - braised shortribs and they were excellent as always and I have decided that I am not going to bother ordering them at any other restaurant as no one does them as well as Shakou. My husband enjoyed the pork chop and we shared a chocolate martini for dessert and it was the best. I love this restaurant.
The menu is weird if and sushi was just okay, service was slow and not great, best part was the mushroom risotto. If you’re expecting authentic sushi/Japanese food like we were this isn’t it. Very expensive for what you get.
My first time there. Everything was delicious! Beautiful restaurant with great food and great service
Loved this place, food was really really good and wait staff was very friendly and great service. Will be going back for sure.
It was a good atmosphere enjoyed the lighting and drink menu. Food was good however, the ocean drive maki wasn’t as good as usual.
Love this place.. the freshest best tasting sushi and great vibe.. feel like your in the city only the food is better
Always a great place to go.
given its deep in suburbs was not bad but the decor is a bit tacky out of place. sushi quality was ok
service was good
Excellent all around
Pros: Excellent food and attentive servers
Cons: Apathetic front of house staff and house music at all hours, its like they are trying for a night club vibe even at 4pm on a Sunday.
Crowded, got a table that seemed to be on hall way, congested. They took forever to bring our food out. Server too busy to even notice we were waiving. My husband and I go on few dates due to kids so very disappointed about the experience.
Food is fantastic, would give it a 5 star and visit more often if I didn’t have to psych myself up for the awful rave music!!!!! Manager NO likes it!
celebrating a special birthday we were warmly greeted by the staff at the front. Promptly seated and our server Jason made sure we were being well served. Everyone ordered a different main entree after enjoying appetizers. All dishes were served t once and the food was hot and tasty.
I loved this place, but having shelfish allergy the sushi menu options for me was VERY limited. I wish they would make more rolls with tuna and salmon, but the majority of their rolls had shelfish.
Go there all the time
Celebrated my daughter 16 th birthday . It was fantastic !
Very disappointing.... I have eaten here before but I am not sure if I’ll go back. Our “hot” Chicken Bento box was a misnomer. (Actually, this is the 2nd time we’ve been served cold food) This time, our two chicken bentos sat on a table for 7- 8 minutes before our friends’ meal (which consisted primarily of cold Sushi) arrived and all were served together. The chicken, tempura, gyoza i think because ours sat on the table waiting for them to get their primarily cold sushi? Either the chef was not able to complete his tasks timely for all to arrive together where Hot things would be hot when served; or the server should’ve delivered ours when it was ready. Sitting 8 minutes - uncovered at room temperature was unnecessary. I think the food could be good and maybe enjoyable IF the food were hot.
Food great. Too noisy for conversation, mostly due to loud recorded music. Seating in booths too close to table.
Just loud music bothered me. Everything else was really good
Was really looking forward to celebrating my birthday at Shakou! I was expecting the restaurant to be loud based on previous reviews, but was really disappointed by the whole experience. Overall within the first 5 minutes, the music was so loud and techno we couldn’t even hear each other talk, the cold air was pouring out of the vents so we asked to move tables and the waitress was not friendly at all. My Moms steak ordered medium was completely rare and after re-cooking, still came back medium rare. The chicken teriyaki had no sauce and my blackberry mojito was pure sugar. Unfortunately, we won’t be returning even though my Green Dragon roll, shrimp tempura and Seafood Miso was delicious!
Noise level was to high, but over all everything was fine
Our first visit. Went with friends who enjoy sushi. They loved it. While we enjoy the more basic rolls, I felt the signature rolls we had were excellent. I believe our favorite was the white tiger. Next time we will try one of the boats.
My friend & I met here for dinner on a Tuesday. Everyone was very friendly. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu, she gave us some great recommendations. Our meal was amazing!! My friend lives downtown Chicago & is a world traveler & said this was the best sushi she has ever had! The restaurant is beautiful! Keep up the great work !
Food is great but every expensive and noisy. I’ve been there many times and keep hoping it’ll improve.
The quality of the food is great, and we enjoy the specialty cocktails served in whimsical glassware. We appreciate the wide menu options of both non-seafood/fish items such as beef and chicken as well as vegetable options. The "Secret Garden" vegetarian rolls are our favorite!
A bit too noisy . Loud music drowns conversations . Informal seating . Good food but nothing special .....
Nice evening over good food. Great presentation. Our first visit. Thank you!
I liked the interiors and the sushi was good (for a non sushi lover)
Food and service were great. I was given a booth by the window which I requested ahead of time. Hostess was lovely and so was our waiter. Just PLEASE keep music to a lower volume—nearly impossible to carry on convo bc it was just too loud. Had to leave and go to Starbucks for after dinner conversation. And no—we’re not old!
Solid, consistent, service and food in an energetic atmosphere.
We like the Fish and Chips for simple treat that's easy to enjoy. Wife likes hot and slighty spicy
