The very casually dressed hostess who sat us turned out to be the manager - during our time in the restaurant she was sitting at a table with her laptop out and was directly in line of vision of all diners and it was quite off-putting. That said, our server was very good and the food was also good.

This restaurant is modern and gorgeous and has the food to match! The oxtail dumplings were amazing and all the sushi was too. Very fresh fish. I had the Mandarin Mule to drink and I recommend that too. I'll definitely return.

One of the best sushi restaurants I've been to. Fun location as well! I'm typically not a huge fan of salmon sushi and I'd get their salmon rolls every time.

The food here is amazing. My wife took me here for a intimate birthday dinner back in December & I love every bit of it. Sushi? Amazing. Drinks? Amazing. The ambience? Amazing. Seriously, the only thing to not like about this place is how difficult it was to find. However it was a crazy cold, snowy night in downtown Chicago... More

This place is beautiful and the food and service excellent. My friend and I show up late in a very cold night (Chicago style on December). Was no rush from the people at the bar or at the kitchen. The food was delicious and with a great presentation, I love sushi and this was fresh and yummy every single piece.... More

This is a trendy, neon atmosphere, with good sushi and excellent service. We ordered several rolls, Fire & Snow was our favorite with crab, really fresh salmon and avocado. The mini spicy crab tacos were outrageously delicious! We tried the ox tail dumplings which were great as well. Our server B, was so professional and polite and made great suggestions,... More

This is the very best sushi place in Chicago -- very fresh fish! I order from here about once a week. The one helpful heads-up I will give is that the restaurant is quite warm and humid in warm weather. The first time I ate at the restaurant I thought there must be a problem with their A/C and that... More

This is the second time we have been to Jellyfish in the past 7 months. The atmosphere is fun and young, but also suitable for families with older kids. The sushi is very good and we were delighted to see Happy Birthday wishes to our daughter at the top of our paper menu! When I made our reservation I let... More

My husband and I went here for dinner since we were in the area. We found it on groupon. It's on the second floor so you won't see the restaurant if you were just passing by the street. You have to enter the building and take the small elevator. There were homeless men asking for money on that block and... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
