We found ourselves wandering around late on a Monday night, trying to find a place to eat. This place was open so we decided to give it a try. On Mondays they offer half price bottles of wine, which was good news to start the meal with. All the fish we ordered was so fresh and buttery, we were pleased... More

I have been going to South Coast for at least the past 7 years... and never once have I been disappointed. The service was always good there, although it can get a little slow during busy times. I think that's partly due to the amount of carry-out/delivery this place handles. The spicy tuna roll is different every time (heat-wise) which... More

One of my favorite places to enjoy sashimi and sushi rolls. They Sparkling Lychee is my favorite drink. Love the Hamachi Carpaccio, fresh oysters and Crunchy Maki. Frequently dine here with friends (ladies between 35-40 yrs). Looking forward to the next visit. Make reservations if you can. Otherwise, you might wait on a Thu-Sat night after 6:30-7:00 pm. The front... More

I went here due to the good reviews, but was disappointed. They had a three course special but they would not let one person in the table have it if the other one did not have it. I went with a friend and she wanted to order that, but I wasn't too hungry and wanted something small so they didn't... More

The sushi is excellent. The drinks are good. The atmosphere is eclectic. The servers are nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. My favorite sushi spot in Chicago.

We've frequented South Coast on a number of occasions (we live within walking distance). Consistently good and the service is always attentive. I've even brought foreign business colleagues here for a evening meal. Delivery is equally good and firm favourites are the rolls. Always flavourful, always fresh. If you are driving, note they have some free parking across the road... More

One of my favorite restaurants in the South Loop: fantastic sushi, prompt service, nice decor. It is a little out of the way but worth the walk or cab ride.

I have visited Chicago before, so my second time around I was not really looking for anything famous or well known. A friend and I walked here from Hyatt McCormick Place. It was very high class sushi wish a great modern twist!

I'm a sushi lover, and recently moved to the South Loop, so I couldn't wait to check on this place, the closest Japanese restaurant from home. I was really looking forward to make it my place to go in the neighborhood! Besides, the space looks really nice: modern, cozy, elegant. The gastronomic experience was surprisingly disappointing. The waiter told us... More

This restaurant is a bit outside of downtown, but ins an up and coming neighborhood. We loved walking to it from our hotel. You get a free appetizer each night. the selection is good and the food is well-prepared. The staff are very nice and accommodating to our large party which included two babies.

Staying in South Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you happen to visit during football season, you may bump into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park is one of Chicago’s premier locations for green space and recreation with views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Take a stroll down memory lane in the historic Prairie District where you can enjoy views of old historic homes. Restaurants, theaters, and clubs are spread throughout the neighborhood along with a collection of burger joints along Michigan Avenue just across from the park.
