Diner Reviews
  • "Get there before 6:00pm for $3 draft beers and great prices on sushi. Try the Godzilla roll!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We love the food at this restaurant but the service was bad. We made a reservation because they seem to always be busy. This was a special occasion and they DID NOT have a table for us. Even arriving a few minutes early to ensure our table they told us they didn't have anything available and we could sit at the bar. How do you sit at the bar with children under 10. We eventually were seated but not after some discussion with the greeter. Food is good but don't expect great service."

  • "We had a very nice enjoyable dinner. We started with an order of avocado rolls, for dinner my husband had the teriyaki chicken dinner, I had the combination Tempura & steak dinner. Even though it was a Sunday evening, people were waiting to be seated. I'm glad I had made a reservation, as we only waited until a booth was prepared and we were seated."

  • "This place is pretty good. Fairly standard Japanese fair. Could use a little work on service, though."

  • "I took my team here to celebrate after we completed some important milestones on client work. Parking is usually easy enough to find, food here is always mouth-watering good, and the service is prompt and easy. And the sake sampler is always fun! The food is fresh and choices have just the right amount of variety."

  • "Great specialty rolls. This is the more upscale of the three branches. The flaming roll is kitschy but a must-try!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great night. They were able to squeeze us in for a late dinner. We didn't get the "Valentines special" but the good was great."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Good quality sushi and sashimi - generous slices, very fresh. Plenty of private parking at lunchtime. Quiet and attractive."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Sashimi was good but very cold, so not as tasty as it could have been. Staff friendly but heavily accented so a bit hard to understand."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "The food was delicious and the owner was gracious - be careful with the bar drinks though - you may have to tell the bartender directly what drink you want, as the servers do not seem to have any knowledge of a liquor menu...."

  • "The restaurant did not have our open table reservation in their book. They were very busy that night and even though we showed them our email confirmation, we were the last group seated as they continued to seat everyone in order of arrival - except one large party that arrived after we did that had a reservation. Once seated, food and service was very good."

  • "Love Shikki! Great service and there is something to please everyone. We come here a lot, dates, with the kids, it's perfect."

  • "Very good Sushi Rolls and sashimi was very fresh. A little pricy. But worth it."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "Start with the Saki sampler, enjoy with Ahi tuna. Delicious combination choices, my favorite Prawn tempura with pork chop. Attention to detail, service and decor. A very nice dinning experience."

  • "Wonderful, extensive menu with an attentive and pleasant staff!"

  • "We were celebrating Taylor's win for 1st in the hula competition. The pork ramen is delicious as well as the salmon and tempera. The side Goya and Calfornia roll are always fresh. Miso soup is tasty. They mistakenly brought gyoza for the side lunch ramen and so they gave us the sushi in addition."

  • "The nigiri was some of the best I've had! The rolls were very good as well!"

  • "The sushi rolls were delicious. I cant wait to go back!"

  • "Shiki's is a great local restaurant and a great place to dine in a group setting. The service is fast and the sushi is fairly good as well. There is not much in the way of outdoor seating, and it can get very crowded at lunch, so reservations are advised. It's also a great place for a happy hour with friends or coworkers."

  • "I like the fresh oyster, spider roll, and uni. The cocktails and desserts are not very good."
