We stopped here for some sushi. It was really good but we felt like the servers were rushing us. They asked several times to clear our plates before we were finished. More expensive than expected but it was delicious food.

Good place with other locations in Chicago. Ask for fire dragon maki and the thai escargot ( very different and spicy)

Went for dinner and ordered edamame, a Dragon Roll and Pad Thai. The edamame was mushy, Dragon Roll small and not good and the Pas Thai was bland. The atmosphere was cheery and there was outside seating. However will not go back!

I have been to this location a while back and it hasn't changed. The service was ok not amazing. I asked the waitress whether they can do rolls without rice and add cucumber and she looked at me like I was speaking another language. I said forget it and ordered the large sashimi plate, seaweed salad, and miso soup. The... More

We have been going to Butterfly on Grand Avenue for several years. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, gathered with out of town family, etc. It is ALWAYS great! Everyone loves it, the food is fresh and tasty, the staff is friendly and helpful! We love Butterfly!

Portions were substantial, fresh ingredients, full of flavor and yummy. They are great about making substitutions and/or tweaking a dish to your liking. Ambience better for small groups

I have been going to Butterfly for several years now -- the value for the sashimi platters is amazing, and served with lots of daikon, carrots and beets.

The food is awesome, the place is very nice, clean with a modern decor. Did I mention it is BYOB (bring your own Bottle) for those unfamiliar with the concept. I would have given this place a 5 star except for the fact that the last couple of times we were there I got the impression they were hurrying us... More

absolutely everything on the menu is superb including take-out if you like Thai this is a MUST! Clean service style and nice atmosphere, especially in the warmer weather streetside when outdoor is setup. Godzilla roll is especially excellent however you won't experience much disappointment with anything you might choose. A++
