  • Met my craving for sushi at Shinto!

    We ate outside under the umbrellas which was nice. We usually order the spider roll but this time we tried their special roll - killing me softly which was excellent. All of the rolls we tried were great. We had the Philly roll, another one with lobster, and another one with crab. This is a great place for sushi or hibachi. The only issue we had was our points not being credited, we had to stop at the host stand after dinner to get it cleared up, but then our points were added.

    We were a party of 5 with a four year old on a Saturday afternoon for hibachi. The service was phenomenal. Brendan was our server. Very personable and attentive. Our chef did a great job. Entertaining and delicious. A birthday dessert was complementary and great! I was quite pleased with the entire visit. I plan on returning. Pricing is comparable to other Japanese hibachi restaurants.

    I usually go to the city for my sushi fix but a couple friends wanted to meet up and naperville was the spot. I'm so glad I picked up the groupon and tried this place out. Our waiter Nick was the best host and was helpful in selecting the best food for us. we had drinks, appetizers, and the Sushi was Great!!! we were there from 830 til midnight, being that they closed at 11 it was really nice for them to let us stay that extra hour. If you have the Groupon, give them a good tip for good service. The service here is amazing and the best part is that they will not rush you out if it's busy. so come in and unwind, have a couple sake bombs and enjoy the fresh sushi.

    Came here for the hibachi grill. Udon noodle were phenomenal! Also loved the steak, make sure to upgrade to the chatuebriand. It makes all the difference and definetely worth the $$. I will be returning in the near future to try the sushi. Ohh and the service was outstanding. I wish I could remember our servers name, but he was very knowledgeable and friendly! Great show by the chefs as well. I would definetely recommend coming here especially if youve never been to a hibachi grill!

    We went this weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was absolutely delicious! We love these style of restaurants, and for the price the portions are very fair. Same goes for the sushi. The rolls my husband ordered were twice as large as rolls we've paid the same price for at other restaurants. The wait staff and chef were attentive and wonderfully friendly but not intrusive. Excellent meal and experience here this weekend!

    Dined on 5/4/2014
    We were seated prior to two other parties. Too are surprise, both parties had chefs at their tables and was getting service while we sat and waited. After waiting an additional 10 minutes we were able to finally flag down the manager to ask for an explanation to why we did not have a chef at our table. The response was very weak, full of excuses, but with no real action to remedy the situation. This was our first experience at this restaurant and will be our last. It's unfortunate too, since the food was actually good.

    When to shinto's for my birthday, this everyone's first time at shinto's for everyone and a first time hibachi experience for most of the group. The wait staff was great, he knew the menu very well, as well as the sake drink menu. My wife that's a pizza and burger only type of person a very picky eater, the made her a fried rice with out chicken, and made her a steak with perfection. She said we'll be back. My 3 year old was a little rambunctious while we were waiting for the chef, but once he started the show his eyes lit up with the initial flame and everyone was entertained the whole time. The dragon roll was amazing. Fried rice was awesome well with the extra money. Everyone loved they're food.

    My wife and I found this place through a last second change in my company's party plans. We loved the attention we received and we wanted to return. Fast forward a few months and my wife asked that we go here again for her birthday. We were not disappointed. The food was terrific and attention to our Hibachi experience was an A+ all the way. I fully recommend this place for any occasion. It is worth every penny you spend! CHICAGO ROLL!!!!!!!

    Always great food at Shinto. The sushi is so fresh and with little to no fat. The hibachi dinners are plentiful. Only thing I would change is to add some more sushi rolls without crab to the menu. Ryan was our server and is especially good.

    The food here is delicious! I've been to a several hibachi places and this is definitely in my top 3. It's a bit pricey so it's a once in a while treat or for special occasions. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for great food and an awesome atmosphere. From the hostess, to the waiter, and the cook.... The service was great!! Until next time Shinto!

    Realist
    Dined on 4/15/2014
    Not a long wait for the table, but the last maybe 4 times we've been here the wait for our food (after we have had soup and salad) has seemed like a long gap. I bet about 20-30 minutes after finishing my salad we finally had some veggies. Anyhow, not a big deal if you plan for it because the food is great and the chef's are really entertaining.

    This was my fourth or fifth time coming here. I had done the hibachi before but we like coming here for sushi. My boyfriend is allergic to shellfish and I only like cooked sushi so were trying to talk with the waiter to see what our options were. He kept recommending things that wouldn't work which left us puzzled. He wasn't very good about checking on us either, leaving for long periods of time. He failed to mention/offer me items that came with my meal, but by the time we saw him again our entrees had been brought out and I thought it best just to forget it. While we enjoy the food enough to come back, I think service could be improved a bit.

    The food was good....something I'd crave...the atmosphere is nice...waiter was nice and attentive, HOWEVER....I went on half off Tuesdays....he did not advise me that the combo meals were not half off.....I learned that when I got the bill. The manager offered me a friends and family discount ...although it did not amount to the half off price...I would revisit

    My husband and I only go out to an expensive restaurant like this about once every six months. Was worth every penny. We started with two sushi rolls, both excellent. We ordered the steak hibachi, and salmon hibachi. So good! Only negative was there were three empty sugar packets, along with sugar on the floor. I saw them as I approached the table, and felt the crunchy sugar under my feet when I sat down. This did not impress me. I feel if my husband and I are going to spend more than a hundred dollars on dinner, I don't want to see and feel garbage on the floor as I eat. All in all though, we were definitely glad we went, and I can't stress enough how delicious the food is. If it wasn't so expensive, I would go there all the time!

    Great restaurant, go for the Hibachi, unless you are a sushi nut, both will delight. The service is always friendly and he is there when you need it. I thought it was busy for a Tuesday evening. But rest assured most nights are this way. Had a drink at the bar while we were waiting for the party to arrive. The bartender was friendly and seemed please to serve you anything you like. At the table our server was prompt and courteous. He was there just the right amount. I started out with a sushi roll and and finished up with a filet, lobster and scallops, all perfectly cooked. We had an awesome time. I know we will go back again to enjoy great food and in the company of friends and family.

    Dined on 2/28/2014
    Really enjoy this restaurant. Went for the Naperville restaurant week menu because it was a great value and allowed us to try an appetizer and dessert (generally we will get an appetizer and stick with the same one or two items). Because it was a special menu it was printed on a separate sheet of paper and descriptions of items were not included leaving us to have to flip between that and the every day menu. Food was great but the timing could have been better as we got out sushi before finishing our appetizer. Overall we would return to the restaurant if we were in the area.

    You can not go wrong here! Mondays 1/2 off all Speciaity Rolls! The Sushi is great! Remember to make a reservation as it tends to be crowded. They also have Habachi grills That are smokeless. Nice presentation and good Childern specials. The Sushi and bars part of The restaurant tend to be more for adults but they have done a nice job of deprecating the Habachi room which you Can still get sushi at and Habachi. You will not be disappointed!

    The only complication I encountered I found it difficult to book a party os13 people,the on line booking kept telling me that I couldn't book this.I tried a slightly different number and later times but with little success I am assuming that your hitachi seats lesser amounts of people so we had to wait for two tables for that amount of people.The problem was I was not asked until much later in the questioning if I needed hibachi or sushi, and we actually wanted sushi

    A bit of an off location being in a strip, but the ambience is good. More hip than I expected with a diverse dining crowd. Fire and Ice Roll was very good, as was the cucumber tini. The night club was non-existent - I heard rumors about a dance floor but it wasn't happening. Good place for a group dining wise though.

    Took my girlfriend and two kids (6 & 9 yrs). The Hibachi chef was talented and very fun for adults and kids alike. The food was great! The server was personable but was different as he had this hipster/cool guy attitude and did not come around enough for drinks, but he did try to make you happy. There were only 2 problems in the night: One was that the restaurant is off the street a bit and in a dark stripmall so you have to be careful and have your head on a swivel to find it. Next, we had resos for 6 pm and arrived 5 minutes early. The hostess told us we would have a 10 minute wait to be seated. Not good when you have young kids!! Overall, great food, great interior, good crowd and a very good place for dates and families alike!
