    We love this restaurant and now, the boys love this restaurant. The service was excellent, although the UPSALE could have been reeled in a bit...atmosphere was pretty and the food is always a treat. The prices are a bit higher than some other sushi restaurants, but having a "coupon" for $40.00 helped. Great restaurant all around.

    Not my first time to Shinto, so it was an easy decision to make a reservation for our return. Great food, with deals in the afternoon and at happy hour. And if you're there for dinner you can meet the head sushi chef and speak to him about his special maki roll of the day. Always a treat!

    Menu was diverse and had plenty of choices. The pricing was a bit high for the type of resturant. The bill was over $200 for four people not including alcohol. Which i thought was a bit on the high side. The food was good and the service was great no complaint there.

    We usually don't venture out on Valentine's Day simply for the crowd reason...we we pleasantly surprised when we walked into a very happening Shinto, shared our name and reservation and moved ahead of 20 people waiting for a table!!! That was wonderful, but boy did we get the looks...Thanks, Open Table, for securing the table so we could spend more time enjoy each other, the food, the wine, the music, the adorable and romantic decorations, the complimentary chocolate fountain and the superb service!

    Great spot for dinner with a show. The quality of food is high, especially the sea-food. Sushi is of great quality and creative new ideas. Will definetly be back for more hibachi and sushi. There was an error in my order of forgetting the chicken I had Ordered with my meal. The waiter was quick to correct, offering to have it cooked up, or comp a portion of the bill.

    We love to eat sushi here! It is conveniently located for us. Our favorite is the Guatemalan roll. This place has a nice vibe, live music and great sushi. Don't expect to be swept off your feet with the service there, but if you have time then it is fine.

    we chose shinto because my husband loves sushi and i wanted seafood. it was our first visit and we were absolutely delighted. from the minute we walked in we were treated like royalty. the service was beyond reproach. our chef - who in his own words does a pretty good job for a white guy - was very talented, entertaining, and funny. the food was exactly as i expected, and so much fun to watch being cooked. and i must mention, i had two of the best long island iced teas i have ever had - if they arent made correctly, they tast way too much like alcohol. these went down waaaay to easily!! :-) we will definitely be back to shinto!

    I had an excellent experience. We were seated promptly and the food was as good as the other times I've visited. The customer service was great! I've always loved the Hibachi here and this time was no different. Thanks Shinto!

    Pleasantly suprised. Typical cook at your table place but cook, servers, and food were good. When busy they can pt up to 10 patrons at a table but that would have been way too crowded. We had seven at our table and thus plenty of room. I will go back.

    Very nice waiter who knew the menu well - even knew that the soup was fish-based, which is fantastic for us because we are vegetarians. Food came quickly, and the sake was warm and refreshing. Definitely our local sushi place from now on.
