Diner Reviews
  • "If you want to have fun and hang out with friends while dining, this place will keep you alert and satisfy your appetite. You start out with appetizers or sushi if you wish, then the chef puts on an interactive show while preparing and serving your meal. The volume gets a little loud, so if you want to have an intimate conversation this is not the place. I was a little disappointed because we were celebrating a special occasion and only had 6 members in our group; they stuck 2 strangers at our table. This was awkward for both parties involved."

  • "I've been to Shintos many times and very disappointed this time. The restaurant was so unbelievably stifling hot. We told our waitress, but I don't think anything was done maybe the AC wasn't working. The waitress we had was kind of pushy too, I don't know if she was getting off her shift or what. Shortly after we were served or Hibachi meal, she was already asking us if we needed to go boxes, we all felt very rushed."

  • "Had a great time. Its important to hace a greay chef. The guy we had was ok but did a decent job. Food was excellent. Only down side is its a little pricey but its a great place for a date, anniversary, birthday, or special occasion"

  • "Went for family birthday. We were seated promptly which was great. The server was nice...good attention, except didnt refill waters. Hibachi guy was a bit boring compared to other places we've been and didnt interact much with kids. He finished at least 10 min before the chef behind him and they came out at same time. Same amount of people at table. The other chef actually paid attention to our kids after our chef left. Shrimp was over cooked and tasteless. Scallops and mid grade steak were good Brought out birthday dessert which was nice but no candle. Also didnt bring out kids dessert or ask anyone else if they wanted dessert until we asked server. Overall ok experience, but will not go back."

  • "The sushi was probably the best sushi I've ever had in the Northeast Ohio area. The hibachi was much like every other one i've been to and of course the yum yum sauce was delicious."

  • "Going to a Japanese Steakhouse is always fun with a group. Shinto did not disappoint us and even perked up our finicky 12-year old grandson. The food was delicious but the service was a bit slow. We were seated immediately with our reservations even though it was a busy evening. Waiting for the chef to arrive at our hibachi was the hold up. We enjoyed the evening with family."

  • "The specialty rolls we ordered and shared we're great. The Jimmy No. 30 and Snow Mountain rolls were exceptional. Good wine and beer offering too. The only reason for 4 stars overall is that this particular evening it was exceptionally loud in the restaurant. There were times it was hard to hold conversation at the table. Otherwise, service was great, the sushi was excellent and we had a nice time."

  • "This was my first visit to shinto which was highly recommended by many friends. We arrived early and waited at the bar for our friends. Unfortunately, they do not have draft beer so that was our only negative for my husband. Dinner was fantastic. I tried scallops for the first time and they melted in my mouth! Would have maybe like the option of a dessert menu but was not offered one so we ended up with dessert at home with friends. Looking forward to returning for another hibachi dining experience. Like the option of making an online reservation. Very convenient!"

  • "I've been to shinto all of twice in the last 10 years, but both times it has been an excellent time; the service, the cooking has always been outstanding; and the price point doesn't make your eyes bulge, which is surprising with how good the meals are!"

  • "This is my favorite restaurant and each time I go I love it even more! We went here for a belated Valentines Day celebration and had one of the best experiences. "Big Daddys" preparation of our food was one of the best I have ever had after coming here for years. The food, as always, was delicious. I can not wait to go back again!"

  • "We went with 2 other couples for Valentines day. It was great! Our only problem was the noise level. If it would have been just a little less loud it would have been perfect. It was great food, and a really fun time."

  • "Most of the specialty rolls are awesome and the half price monday deal is amazing! Our server was very nice and competant but it takes FOREVER to get drinks from the bar. All in all though it was a great girls night out!"

  • "Seems more authenic with Geisha girls or at least waitresses and hostesses dressed up as Geisha girls or boys. Real Japanese chefs who can't speak English would be nice also."

  • "The food and service were wonderful but the constant pounding "club music" was deafening and obnoxious. I could not hear my teppanyaki chef nor talk to my wife and other table guests."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We were disappointed with Shinto, the quality of the food did not measure up to other area Hibachi restaurants. We had high hopes based on reviews, but were let down. The food quality was OK - but it lacked flavor. I added extra vegetables to my order, which consisted of mostly onions. The sushi options looked interesting, we might go back to try the sushi but skip the hibachi."

  • ". This restaurant is very busy with the parking lot always full. So what is it that might draw so many people to this restaurant? The food-everything we tried was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the lobster which was part of the filet/lobster dinner. The lobster was one of the best I have ever had. My husband's chateaubriand was also excellent. Watching the food being cooked at the hibachi table was great fun. On the downside, the waitress at our table was very poor. She forgot ordered drinks, took forever to deliver a bottle of wine, was clipped and rather rude in responding to guests. I got the impression the guests were all rather a pain. The gentleman who cooked in contrast was a pleasure to watch and talk to."

  • "Overall good experience. Kids had fun. We waited quite a long time at our table for service to begin. We were served drinks and soup/salad, but the chef didn't appear for another half hour. It was incredibly loud so conversation was difficult if not impossible. The food was good and service was entertaining once it started."

  • "Food was really good - seating at hibachi table a very tight for 8 adults (fortunately we only had 7 at the table) Service was good - would have liked waitress to stop by a few more times even during the hibachi presentation. Noise level as evening wore on was quite loud. I did not like that even with a reservation we had to wait in the entrance area - no seats available as others were also waiting to be seated - and no area to check coats (It was January in Ohio!!!) However, knowing this all from a prior visit, we still returned to share the experience with a friend who had not been to this restaurant and they too were pleased with the food and hibachi presentation"

  • "We had a fabulous experience. They allowed us to move from a table to the sushi bar. Our server was quick and attentive. The food, wine, and sake were all great! Highly recommend the sashimi."

  • "We had a great dining experience. Our waitress was friendly and the overall service was great. Shinto's is a great place to entertain customers and everyone enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The Hibachi chef also did a good job entertaining as well."

  • "Great restaurant for a group of 6, 8 or 10. Food is always wonderful and the chefs are entertaining. The only thing I wish that could be better is the noise level. Don't get me wrong, I love to see the groups having a good time but it is very difficult to have a conversation with someone at the other end of the hibatchi. Denise - Parma Heights"

  • "A group of 7 for hibachi. we had a good time. Long wait, even with a reservation. Very open and loud format. But we had a good time and the wait staff was awesome. The chef was great too."

  • "hostess was not very knowledgable. I was attempting to sign up for the frequent diner club and she did not seem to know the details. The others at my table kept getting up to go out to smoke and that was rather annoying and disruptive. I would eat here again. It is rather pricey."
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "We have been going to Shintos for many years and our last 4-5 visits have declined each time. Our waitress this last time was exceptional. The chef, however, seemed like it was his first day. We were there for a birthday celebration and the chef missed every trick, didn't do any of the things the other chef's do at the table while cooking. Very disappointing. Also, we had a free appetizer on my Shinto's card and this wasn't applied."
    Dined on 11/18/2013
  • "We had a fantastic time! Our chef "Mike Jones" was fantastic. We had a birthday and they brought us out a dessert (fried icecream, which was wonderful). We were so full from our meal, but ate the ice cream too. Everything was delicious and we would go back again!"
