Pleasant and relaxing atmosphere here. The sushi combinations make the menu stand out and are quite delicious. We enjoy the Rainbow Maki, Dragon Roll, Honey Roll, Ginza Roll, and the Kochi Maki (lobster!). Don't forget to look at their Specials menu which offer more delicious...More

Rolls were fresh and tasty. Delivery was very fast even on evening of game 5 of the series when there are lots of extra people in town. Will order again when I return to Chicago.

Wasabi! The wasabi is very weak. We're bringing our own tube next time. Seriously. The Ginza roll was excellent! Avoid the Aged Tofu. Order the Red Snapper specialty light on sauce. Attentive service.

Among all the sushi options in Chicago, Rise is a consistent favorite. Edamame, tuna tartar, and red dragon roll are our favorites but we've always enjoyed everything we've had. A great neighborhood sushi place.

Everything here is always fresh and beautifully prepared. Just a few steps from the Southport Brown Line station. Even though the vibe is upscale, families feel welcome.

Very "neighborhoody" go-to sushi place that offers great sushi and not just a place you go for its convenience. My friend likes the Red Dragon while the "flaming" sushi dishes were unique and very good. Try the noodle dishes after having sushi as the appetizer....More

Finally went to this place after 3 years in the neighborhood. We don't do sushi & sake, so it never held any appeal other than it's outdoor seating and good corner location. But the non-fish/noodle dishes are really good. And they even have good red...More
