    Not Japanese

    Pushy waiter. Pushed all highest priced items on the menu. Wanted us to order everything at once. Seemed miffed we wanted to enjoy our appetizers with our cocktails first. No help with the wine menu offered. Delivery was machine like. Get EM in ring up the tab and get EM out. Not even close to the environment of a japanese restaurant. More like a typical high priced chain steak house Would never go back. PS the Kistler chardonnay was excellent but they had nothing to do with making that wine. Probably the worst $500 meal experience I have had. My Japan guest who picked it but had never been was torallt embarrassed.

    The best days are in the past

    We frequently stop along the river for our of town guests while taking the scenic river cruise. This used to never happen, but it seems that each time we visit Japonais in the summer of 2012, the service gets poorer. The staff is more concerned about who texts them than being attentive to paying guests. And most concerning is the lack of care - they just don't care about the customer - you have to constantly ask for water, drink refills, napkins, silverware, another round of drinks, etc. We asked for the bill. It arrived at the patio in the server's one hand while she stared at her cell phone screen in the other hand. I asked, "Is the tip or text more important?" Her response: "Huh? Oh, sorry. Tipping is 20 percent." My response - we left her nothing. We won't be returning.

    a sad decline

    Japonaise was once at the top of the culinary scene in Chicago. Sadly, from my last visit, there is a significant decline in the service and food. Staff not engaging, helpful and unable to provide timely, reliable food presentation.

    I will never go back

    Although the food at Japonais is very good, I will never go back.....I took my mother here a about 5 years ago and she still raves about her meal, I took her back in May 2011 and the music was so loud that we couldn't have a conversation at all. We had to shout across the table and even then we couldn't hear each other. I asked if the music could be turned down and of course the answer was no......The food although still good it was no longer exceptional. Because of this I will never go back and will never recommend it again.....I no longer have a favorite restaurant.......As a side note I have a friend who had the same experience I had but on a date, she will also never go back.

    Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!

    I have been to Japonais many times and have never been disappointed. I had friends in town this week and they wanted good sushi. We ventured to this wonderful atmospheric place and truly enjoyed our meal. The waitstaff was very attentive. Keep up the good work. You have a forever customer.

    Perfect place for a special night of fun with in town guests

    Is this the cheapest sushi place in town? Definitely not. But Japonais has some of the best sushi I have ever had, especially at this price point. More importantly, it has the atmosphere, menu, and sake to impress your in town guests. Order the sake and an assortment of maki and appetizers and you won't be dissapointed (or hungry as some have suggested).
