We had a party of 3 adults and 5 children under 9. The wait staff was great and very accommodating. The food was great and all the kids ate their meals. Fun experience for all.

We had lunch there. It was not busy at all on a Saturday. It was irritating that everytime we needed something our waitress was sitting down across the restaurant. Are cook was great and are food was good.

So far I have enjoyed Shirasoni's every time I have had the opportunity to eat there. I think many people are discouraged since Shirasoni has developed the policy to charge 18% gratuity for parties of four(4) or more. Most all restaurants do not charge that unless the party is 6 or more. I do not like it myself.

Food was good. Server was very attentive in the beginning and then disappeared for a while. Then she got busy and I had to flag her down to get the check and then take the check to the hostess stand. 25 minutes from end of dinner until we were able to leave.

The server I had wasn’t up to my expectations. She didn’t refill our drinks and she didn’t even bring us out our food it was some other server. I didn’t appreciate it.

Great place for a special celebration. Food was very good and abundant. We all had a great time and very happily full of tasty things. Make sure you have the garlic fried rice and we shared spicy chicken, shrimp and steak.

Only issue was the wait for drinks or ordering an appetizer was over 20 min.

We have been to Shirasoni quite a few times. However our last visit had been a while ago so we decided to give it a try this weekend. Our chef was completely lackluster and barely interacted with us let alone doing any of the entertainment that other chef's have done such as tossing broccoli for the diners to catch and so forth. It was hugely disappointing as Shirasoni is very expensive.

The food itself was good, not great. Our waitress was excellent and definitely the best part of the experience.

Bottom line, if you want the show, go to the real deal - Benihana. If not, there are many better and less expensive Japanese restaurants.

I learned that it’s not a place to go for a quiet dinner. Or at least a not so loud dinner. Much more laid back/informal than Benihana’s. Food was good and so was customer service. Okay for a happy hour treat but not a date.

Our chef didn't really put on a show like the other tables (teppanyaki dining). Everything was pretty salty except the sushi dishes we ordered. The only positive thing was that we were seated right away since we had reservations. It was a little pricey for a mediocre dining experience. $245 for 3 adults and 1 child including tip.

Jesus was very good and entertaining as our chef. We thought our 20 month old grandson would be delighted with the fire and show. Unfortunately he slept through it all so we will certainly go back. There was an abundance of food and we took some fried rice home which he later devoured. Very happy with our choice of this restaurant for our Mother's Day celebration.
