I had the see bass and it was just
OK, not spectacular. Decent sashimi. Nice atmosphere. The one star is for the incidient that happened after our meal. After using opentable check, my bill came out to be $25.67, not bad right. Well, they accidentally charged $2,567.00 on my debit visa card! They were able to void it, however not w/out the money coming out of the account! It took 2 days for the money to go back in to the account! I was expecting a complimentary dessert BUT nothing, just a "oh, the machine made a mistake". I would try that place again, but I will definitely be using cash or a regular credit card."

Always the destination for my
favorite sushi & tempura prawns and vegetables. I did not rate the brunch or wine list. I have the saki sampler. Romantic depends on who your neighbors are, if you have a family with young children across from you, not romantic. There is seating at the front and at the back for groups, maybe a maximum of 16 - 20 people, my guess-timate."

We have enjoyed dining at Shiki
Bistro many many times. The food is always very flavorful, and nicely prepared. We appreciate the consistency and look forward to dining at the San Carlos restaurant. The sashimi (Chef's choice) is generous and one of the best we have had. Our serving included butterfish which is so flavorful. We enjoy a variety of sushi rolls, including the Honey Crunch roll, the Aki roll, Red Dragon roll, and many others. The Shrimp & Vegetable Tempura appetizer and Agedashi Tofu are excellent. Too many restaurants over bread the tofu and lack the tender texture. We have been to many other places that just do not know how to make this dish. Shiki really does it right! Also, they have a full bar with some creative drinks!"

Very large space with many tables,
some private, and a huge bar. Service was fine and food good. Portions were large and priced accordingly. Practically empty between lunch and dinner so no wait. "

We had made an Open Table
reservation for 11:30 a.m. but it was closed even though they had a special sign on the door they would be open at 11:30 a.m. So we called to let them know that we are waiting outside. Finally, they let us in and notified us that their computer was down so they didn't know about our reservations. They normally open at noontime on Saturday and Sundays. The food was very fresh and tasty. They still remain as one of my favorite restaurants. Hopefully, we won't be locked out the next time."

I have been coming to this
restaurant for some time now. They have the best California Rolls that I have ever eaten. I have eaten at many Japanese Restaurants and their California Rolls are the freshest and the best."

We enjoyed the saki and sushi, a
great selection. If you're not in the mood for sushi, a very nice dinner menu is available. My favorite is the tempura teriyaki combo."
Dined on 4/30/2014
Our kids enjoy the tempura udon
and pork ramen. It's great to have the opportunity to park in the parking lot."
Dined on 4/20/2014
Shared 4 different rolls, all
tasty. Cold sake sampler - also tasty but still prefer hot. Service and food good. "

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."
Dined on 4/4/2014
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."

Consistently good food- great
sushi and rolls, nice atmosphere with friendly service."
Dined on 3/23/2014
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."
Dined on 2/28/2014
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...."

Love Shikki! Great service and
there is something to please everyone. We come here a lot, dates, with the kids, it's perfect."
Dined on 12/27/2013
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."

Very good Sushi Rolls and sashimi
was very fresh. A little pricy. But worth it."

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!"
Dined on 10/12/2013
I like the fresh oyster, spider
roll, and uni. The cocktails and desserts are not very good."

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."
Dined on 8/30/2013
I was pleasantly surprised that
your menu had such good sushi choices. The sushi was very fresh and very tasty. We wanted to try more dishes. I liked the beautiful metro modern decor of your restaurant, too. The server was very nice and made good recommendations as well."

Went on a thursday at 5pm. Group
of 4. Seated at a nice booth. Good service. Miso soup was served luke warm. Salad was average with very lite miso type dressing. I ordered the combo steak teri and chicken katsu.Steak chewy and teriyaki sauce only ok. Chicken katsu was very good. Wife had miso seabass which she liked. Friends had butter salmon which was ok and shrimp and vegi tempura which was really good. Place got busy around 6:30 but wasn't sure if it was because of the farmer's market down the street or if this was a popular place.Ordered 3 desserts to share. They were good. Dinner with 3 drinks , 3 desserts, no appetizers was $120 w/o tip. I would not go back as there are alot better japanese restaurants with way better food in the area"

With so many good restaurants in
in San Carlos, it's hard to pick. However, the family keeps suggesting we go back to Shiki Bistro. What more can I say."
Dined on 7/27/2013
Went for a birthday celebration,
the 4 of us each order 1 or 2 special rolls like Lion King, Crunchy Shrimp, Jalepeno poppers, and also the soup and shared a salad-delicious! They planned each course for us so we weren't overwhelmed and every dish was great! Thank you Shiki Bistro! Loved it and we will be back soon."
Dined on 7/8/2013
Great japanese food and a nice
restaraunt that is also comfortable to take our children to. The staff is very attentive. The sushi is great and I love the tempura."
Dined on 6/30/2013
Food quality has gone down since
this place opened. Miso soup tepid, hamachi low quality, tempura Shrimp roll cold. Will pass on going here again regularly."
