Our server should re-evaluate her career choice. One of the worst and uncomfortable dining experiences I’ve ever had. Food was lukewarm and bland. Underwhelming experience all the way around.

I enjoy eating at Shakou because the food is good and you can’t beat the value at lunchtime. My only unhappiness was that the Music was too loud, with a lot of bass, lessening the enjoyment of the experience.

We all loved the food and the choices. Unfortunately, I got sick afterwards, but everyone else was fine. It may have been a bad crab as I had the crab appetizer and no one else did!

We love it here. Always a good meal with drinks. One suggestion. They are most always out of Jameson whiskey by Saturday night. They say they order 2 bottles per week and it’s popular. Maybe up your order? Just a thought. But still love it.

My first visit here was great and it pretty much hit 4.7 stars. This last visit save the splendid company joining me for dinner was disappointing. The wait-staff seemed to be non plus'd and disengaged throughout the dinning experience, my steak was near cold and over salted when it arrived. A second glass of wine requested to compliment the main arrived as we were getting ready to leave. Third times a charm, we'll see!

Wasn’t impressed with sushi I got, won’t get it again. Some sort of shrimp tempura with smoked salmon. The roll was purple and took away flavor of the roll.

Food was absolutely AMAZING. Hands down best Maki rolls I have ever had. Great, very modern atmosphere, open air seating with fire element. I felt bad for the server, though. Obviously she had way too many tables or something. She took care of our needs but was extremely rushed and short with each interaction. Will definitely be back.

We were a party of six I brought in my own dessert for a celebration. Our server was ( I feel )overwhelmed and not nearly attentive enough. The server asked us if we wanted dessert and we hadn’t even been served dinner yet. I had to get her attention to order a round of drinks to go with our dessert. They took an exceptionally long time to be delivered. We waited an inordinate amount of time for our special dessert to be delivered I had to inquire of the hostess if the server was bringing it out and then when the server came and asked if we wanted anything else I had to then quietly ask her about our special dessert and then she only brought out one part of it.

The food was mediocre at best for some in our party. The service very disappointing.

Our server was lovely and gracious. But as I said, couldn’t handle all the tables she had to serve attentively.

I’ve made reservations about two weeks prior and I requested to be seated in a booth. Upon arrival the staff didn’t have that prepared, so we were seated in this dark table with poor lighting. It was hard to see the menu and my food to be quite honest. When our appetizers came out, the way the waiter was holding the plate, his thumb was in our sauce and that wasn’t pleasant—other than that we enjoyed our rolls.

I love everything about Shakou and normally give a 5 star rating for every category. I order the sea bass, which is my favorite dish on the menu. The server suggested I try their new preparation of the dish. It was disappointing. The appearance was off putting and not nearly as good as the original dish. We were also seated at the very back of the restaurant where is is very dark. Also, we were marked as a No Show, which Open Table corrected immediately.

The drinks and appetizers were fabulous as always and everyone else enjoyed a fantastic meal!

Great overall service, too!
