My husband and I went out for a quiet meal one Wednesday night after work and discovered a hidden gem... The Loop is a cozy yet stylish restaurant, with friendly and very knowledgeable staff who go out of their way to make you feel at home. The food is without doubt the best Japanese food I've eaten - beautifully presented and extremely innovative. On the menu you'll find familiar items prepared with a culinary twist and a long list of signature rolls which are both inspired and delicious. Amongst our choices were light shrimp tempura, flavorful shumai, melt-in-the-mouth eggplant with miso, and a Big Mac signature roll which we were encouraged (by the chef...) to eat with our hands! We left full, satisfied and with only a very small dent in our wallet. We will definitely be going back!

A welcome addition to the neighborhood. Great sushi. Kid friendly with high chairs. Quality of the sushi is wonderful and the staff was very friendly. - Noga Rosenthal

Wonderful addition to the neighborhood! Fresh, delicious, creative sushi. Service was adept but non-intrusive, and my friend's spicy tuna roll was phenominal! Also, the Sake Cosmo? Wonderful. This has just become our go to place.

The Loop has incredibly good sushi. My favorite is the Pink Panther, but I've never tried a roll I was unhappy with. The lunch special portions are especially generous. The restaurant retained most of the decor that Chino's had & it is very cute inside. I get carryout 3x/week & since going there 2 or 3 times, I've always received a very warm greeting from the staff.

I just stumbled into Loop today because I liked the look of the place when I walked by. The staff is so nice. I got take out, but will be back soon the dine in. The Mohawk roll is absolutely delicious. It has Softshell crab, tuna, avacoda...it has this delicious chopped salad on top (just for flavor). Yum!

My girlfriends and I were blown away by this newcomer! We expected it to be like all the other little sushi spots on every block of the city. However, the menu was refreshingly creative and the food was presented beautifully. We loved all 3 ceviches/carpaccios we tried; the fish was extremely fresh and the portions were generous. The Crispy Spicy Tuna app might even be better than Koi's! King Crab + Mushroom salad and Rock Shrimp Tempura were delish too. All the rolls we had were great too. This is by far the best quality sushi bar in my neighborhood. Great value, great fresh food. They will definitely be my go-to. Only complaint was it was quite hot sitting in the back away from the windows; I'm sure with Fall coming this will no longer be an issue.

Loop is a diamond in the 'ruff'... I wish there was a way to have it pop out more from the street because there are some fantastic dishes here. The spicy tuna rolls are amazing. The king crab rolls are fantastic! If you get a crab hand roll with avocado and crunchies OR the king crab with crunchies salad you will come back every day bc you will be addicted. The portions are very generous and the staff is super friendly. They are handing out free samples all the time because they want feedback on new creations. This is a must!
