I have been to Shakou once before and loved the food, the service was ok, but the noise level was incredibility loud. This time we made a reservation for 7:30 pm for my birthday celebration. I was totally excited to enjoy all that they offer food wise. We arrived 10 minutes early and they informed us that there were 5 parties with 7 pm reservations that still were waiting to be seated and it would be quite a wait.
This was such a disappointing experience as we had to leave. My husband is a diabetic and people cannot just postpone for an hour! That was a bit excessive to us...
Too bad...

I was quite surprised they have a great kids menu. I went with my two boys, 6 and 8. The older loved the salmon and tuna nigiri. The waitress was fantastic with my boys. We are looking forward to returning.

When you book a table for 6:00 PM, relatively early for the evening, I think you shouldn't start ordering an appetizer and few minutes later to hear the server saying: Sory sir we're out of it.
I can't stand the fact that an item is out and still appearing on the menu without notice.
It really reminds me of Romania 50 years ago, when going to a restaurant everything was out other than the one-week-old bread!

Food was okay. My boyfriend got chicken teryiaki with vegetable fried rice, I got the dragon roll. For the price you’d think the roll would come with rice or something but no. Also the gyoza was mediocre at best.

My wife really liked this place when she went with a friend so we had our anniversary dinner there. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Not that we needed any special attention.. but in general - they all went out of their way to provide excellent customer service. The place is very cool inside - nice decor....
The food? Not that impressed... it was good. Fresh. Nice size pieces of Nigiri... but the maki and tuna tartare left me unimpressed...
Will give it another shot based on customer service ... maybe just an off night.

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.
