We have been to Shirasoni quite a few times. However our last visit had been a while ago so we decided to give it a try this weekend. Our chef was completely lackluster and barely interacted with us let alone doing any of the entertainment that other chef's have done such as tossing broccoli for the diners to catch and so forth. It was hugely disappointing as Shirasoni is very expensive.

The food itself was good, not great. Our waitress was excellent and definitely the best part of the experience.

Bottom line, if you want the show, go to the real deal - Benihana. If not, there are many better and less expensive Japanese restaurants.

I learned that it’s not a place to go for a quiet dinner. Or at least a not so loud dinner. Much more laid back/informal than Benihana’s. Food was good and so was customer service. Okay for a happy hour treat but not a date.

Our chef didn't really put on a show like the other tables (teppanyaki dining). Everything was pretty salty except the sushi dishes we ordered. The only positive thing was that we were seated right away since we had reservations. It was a little pricey for a mediocre dining experience. $245 for 3 adults and 1 child including tip.

Jesus was very good and entertaining as our chef. We thought our 20 month old grandson would be delighted with the fire and show. Unfortunately he slept through it all so we will certainly go back. There was an abundance of food and we took some fried rice home which he later devoured. Very happy with our choice of this restaurant for our Mother's Day celebration.

It takes us around close to 1 hour to be able to eat dinner and this is in weekday night. We have reservation at 6.45 pm and we didn’t even get to sit until 7.10. And even the I have to check with the lady in front because at first she told ya that we will get our seats in 15 min but at 7.00 she said that there are a party in front of us. I have to tell her that our reservation is for 6.45 then she has to check and said oh yeah that’s true. If I didn’t check with her she might have given our seat to other parties.

Had a great time celebrating my birthday with my daughter. We opted not to do the show this time because we’ve seen the same exact show at three different teppanyaki chain restaurants. Maybe you have to teach your chefs to do some tricks thats unique to your restaurant or some new trick and switch it up more often.
Good luck!

I used to go quite frequently but, my past few experiences haven’t been good. At all . The past time my rice was hard,HARD, food wasn’t as flavorful as normal, also the waitress didn’t come around not ONE time and ask did we need a refill or ANYTHING. By the end of our 2 hours there a different waitress asked us were we ok and then a DIFFERENT waitress brought my bill. ALSO I asked the chef to throw a broccoli for my daughter to catch(shes 4& “the fire restaurant is her absolute favorite ) she had been raving about it the entire time. He told me he’s sorry he can’t I should have asked him earlier.im sorry but I’m pretty sure I’ve NEVER asked for that they chefs always just do that. So on top of that I was charged a Gratuity Charge for 3adults & 2 small children ages 4 & 2 who didn’t even order a meal! I spent 200$ that night I took my little brother out to celebrate .Im very disappointed.

Once seated, they moved us to another table for a 'better table'. We sat for one hour. No chef. No explanation. Then they said the grill was not ready even though it sizzled when another at our table set their drink accidentally on it. No offer of drinks or anything. The manager comes and pretends to be lighting the grill. Then the chef comes out not prepared. He served cold broccoli and my 12 yr old raw beef. Then the capper: an automatic ĺ18% gratuity on the bill (party of 5 - really?) no birthday discount because our party was not 6 or more. For as loud it was, no manager service and poor meal, Never again.

Service:

Table service is slow due to the ratio of customers to waiters/waitresses. But our waiter always came to check up on us even if it took 10-15 minutes.

Teppanyaki service was awesome even though it was rushed. Our chef was funny and season and cooked to perfection.

Food:

DELICIOUS.

Value:

Expensive but worth the splurge once in a while.

Overall, it was a great first time experience. Who knew garlic fried rice, made with BUTTER, can be so tasty! If you have patience and love butter on everything, this place is worth checking out.
