                        I would definitely love if I could’ve had the table for just me and my friends since it was my 25th birthday and I decided to have a wonderful dinner with this lovely restaurant. Food is amazing. I’d love to be able to buy the yum yum sauce LOL. Super delicious!

                        Everything is considerable, but the prices are very high, and apart from the mandatory tip that the restaurant asks for 20%. No minimum or maximum number of people on the reservation. I don't think the rules of the restaurant are fair.

                        The wait time was like 25 even with a reservation but it’s a reasonable wait time the chefs are funny and know what they’re doing even though it takes another 20 min for chef to arrive , the waiters and front desk people are super chill , the tables were cleaned nicely and we’ll organized , overall pretty good experience, I would come back with friends but I wouldn’t go there a lot , maybe once and a while , the only downside is that they charge 20% on top of the food you have to pay for , if your going with 1 other person you would have to be ready to pay around 150-230

                        The food was very good and the cook was entetaining, but felt like we over paid for the service that was rendered like a hole in the wall kind of restaurants from the server. I would recommend this place for the food, but not the service.

                        They charge a 20% gratuity which is split amongst the workers which is ok but it makes it extremely expensive to pay those working behind the scenes and the ones who actually served us. I’d personally prefer if they raise the prices and divide the overage that way rather than charge 20% on top of taxes and expect you to still give 15-20% for your sever/cook. You pay Gratuity even if it’s a party of 1

                        We usually order a bonsai Teppanyaki dinner along with filet mignon and a side of sushi and we usually get the fish bowl drink and share with my husband. The only thing I don’t like is that we had to pay a mandatory 20% tip with our check. The only reason why I have an issue is because the waitress was really busy she barely had time to come and check on us so overall I am disappointed with the fact that 20% tip was required

                        Honestly this was the first time we have gone to Shirasoni as a family and we really enjoyed the experience :) Our server was super nice and always asked us about how we were feeling and if we needed anything else and overall super helpful. Our chef was also super nice and hilarious because he could make us laugh a lot with his comments. Everything was super pretty and it was a nice ambiance, also with making a reservation before it was super nice to just enter and in less than 10 minutes be seated. thank you for a great dinner:)!

                        It’s very expensive now that they automatically charge an additional 20% SERVICE FEE to EVERY CHECK.

                        The 20% gratuity for everything you purchase (even one glass of wine) is ridiculous. The food is so so and the way they pack you into one table ( even adding a seat to our table ) so they can use one chef is also ridiculous. I made reservations for a party of 7 at 5:30 and they made us wait over 30 minutes to fill the last chair for a table of 8 but then squeezed in one more because it was a couple. Clearly all they care about is getting money and less about customers. If gas wasn’t $6 a gallon I would drive to Benihana

                        We were a party of 6 and shortly after we ordered they sat a party of 2 at them end of our “table” so our chef waited until they decided to cook. It pushed dinner back 15 - 20 min and when you are celebrating a 7 year birthday that can be too much waiting.

                        Horrible experience. We arrived in time for our reservation and were told it would be another 25 mins. Once sat, it look a long time to get our drinks and the cocktails were terrible. One of the adults in the party ended up going to the bar directly to get the next round. The food order was wrong, twice. We also were sat with a family who walked in already drunk and were dropping F bombs and making racial comments throughout the meal, despite celebrating grandma's 90th birthday and having a child in tow. All of this was brought to management's attention and the remedy was $30 off the bill which didn't even cover the 20% gratuity that is forcibly included. Needless to say, we won't be going back.

                        When I got there we had a slight reservation mishap regarding the size of our party. The host discretely pulled me to the side and explained my seating options, then honored my requests perfectly. We had 6 children with us so the chef made a Mickey Mouse out of the fried rice, which they loved. Overall we enjoyed ourselves and we’re very pleased with the customer service of the staff.

                        Fun! But it seems like our reservation didn’t matter - we weren’t seated until nearly 45 min after our reservation time.

                        The Hubs wanted to celebrate his birthday here as he had a coupon for a free birthday dinner so I made reservations on Open Table and when we arrived 10 minutes after our reservation time, it was no problem as we had to wait about 15-20 minutes for a table. I had indicated that it was his birthday and they assumed that we wanted to have a teppanyaki experience, which was ok since it was a special occasion. When we were finally seated, there were two other people at our table that had birthdays so we knew it would be a fun experience! This was our first experience with teppanyaki here so why not do it for a birthday celebration! Our Chef Noy was friendly and entertaining and we had a good time seeing his cooking show! The food was plenty and we had to take the rest home. Dinner started with soup with mushrooms and salad (the dressing was a bit tart). Then we had stir fried mixed veggies and the garlic butter fried rice. Both were very tasty and a bit garlicky. I like garlic but sometimes garlic doesn't like me! Anyway, Hubs ordered the salmon and I ordered the New York steak medium rare. Portions are huge as Hubs shared his salmon with me as he had two big pieces of salmon and I had a whole New York steak! The servers also provided the 3 birthday people with a mochi ice cream dessert with candle and sang Happy Birthday. Needless to say, we had to take half of our meals hope because there was so much tasty food leftover! You don't need to season your food as our chef put enough garlicky butter, oil and soy sauce and salt when he cooked our food.

                        We had okay service at this restaurant, was alittle disappointed because we made reservations ahead of time so we can have private sitting for my husband’s birthday. Instead of informing us ahead of time, that we might not get our own private sitting we were basically thrown with other customers, I thought that was unprofessional, so reservations was not even needed. Adding this Resturant didn’t implement covid rules, I saw customers walking in and out with no mask and workers there didn’t say anything, sitting was not spaced out for distance at all. The table we sat was not clean well either, I put my hand on it was greasy with left over from previous customers. I truly recommend this restaurant to put dividers. The Who teppanyaki or Hana experience was low, the chef who try to entertain our table only did want trick which is with the fry rice , his name was Hugo he was nice but need more training. Food was over charge and lack freshness n taste. On top of it, when I made the reservations ahead of time, I put down it was my husband birthday and even inform our server ahead of time. But at the end they brought out mochi from the customer who was thrown with our group and I had to inform server that it was my husbands bday too so they ran back in kitchen to bring out another, I believe we shouldn’t even be charge for the experience we had at this restaurant on top of it they already took out tip etc
