    It was our first time there. I didn’t know we had to share a table. We had to share with three young guys that were cursing a lot. It was a Father’s Day outing with my kids and their dad. The food was great. Even though we don’t eat beef. We had chicken and one of the guys had streak. The chief cooked all the food together, so it was streak juice- fat cooked with our chicken. Glad we checked it out but will not be going back.

    A bit too expensive for what we got but fun nonetheless. The best part was after the meal, we went to the bar and chopped it up with Andrew (bartender). Cool guy, great at drniks, and funny as hell. I would go just to have a few drinks with him next time.

    Ordered medium rare steak and received well done. A friend told our server that her California roll didn’t taste good and their response was “ok”. No toilet paper stocked in women’s restroom. Honestly my experience is a 0 out of 10 wouldn’t recommend.

    We were given to go boxes while we were still eating, never got offered dessert, refill on drinks, dirty dishes sat there for a while, no one checked on us. Poor service even though 20% service fee is already included. I don’t mind that practice but we expected better service

    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:)!
