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 roles. I also can't say enough about the Chilean sea bass appetizer which is excellent... 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.

Rise Sushi has always been a favorite place for my family and I. They have an amazing variety of specialty rolls and offer great fresh tasting fish. They are consistent and always have great food no matter what hat you order. Rise sushi is a great spot in Chicago for Sushi.

We were a larger group (11) but we had reservations so our table was waiting. Service was good as we didn't have a great deal of time before our show at Stage 773. I had the spicy curry beef and found it generous and excellent. We started with edamame and hot sake, lots of sake, hot and cold. Most others... More

This is our favorite sushi place. Their sushi seems fresher and better prepared with better ingredients than other places. They have many rolls that are unique. In the winter when I do not want sushi I order their snapper tips in a great sauce with rice. Good udon bowls, too. Great 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. Can't go wrong.

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 wine! If I'm not banned from there for using this headline, I'll be back.

Thank Chris D
