The shrimp and chicken were way over cooked. My steamed rice wasn't very hot. Our server never asked us if we would like dessert. My steak was excellent.

It was so easy to order the table on line. It was my friends birthday and it was free. We had a great time.
They also brought a desert that was delicious.

have been here several times over the years-- this was probably our worst experience. we came here to celebrate my wife's bday.. we come here knowing it will be a little pricey however, we didn't know it would be 95 degrees outside and 105 inside. assuming the AC was out as they had a portable AC unit.. unfortunately for the customers they only pointed the unit at the employee counter instead of the dining area. also very dusty throughout the restaurant. besides the heat ( and it was a biggie) i think our biggest disappointment was the service -- felt very rushed.. soup was cold, apps came out with dinner, 5 minutes after our chef left the table our server brought boxes to our table for leftovers, two minutes later the check came..

Great atmosphere..Great Staff...Very entertaining..
The food was great the only issue my wife had was the use of a nasty rag to clean the grill and the use of garlic butter instead of fresh garlic..
I won't be able to get her to go back because of that rag .😢

Food was delicious, but it ended up being a 2 hour affair. The wait was as expected, our waitress was nice but not really around, the chef always takes a long time to show up and when it was time to pay the credit card machine went down. The majority of the patrons and wait staff were waiting for the one credit card machine for nearly half an hour. Kind of a drag because we had other plans afterwards, but ended up missing out because dinner took so long. But dinner was yummy, our chef hilarious, our waitress very kind and apologetic.

The setup person gave excellent service, above and beyond what is common. He even put ice in a child's miso soup to cool it down, without being asked to do so. We didn't know any of the other 6 people at our table but everyone had a great time together. The food chef put on a great show.

Took my mother out for her birthday and she absolutely loved it! Couldn’t stop laughing the entire time we were there. Our server was very nice and quick. The chef was hilarious lol had my mother cracking up throughout the entire night. Her first time at Shirasoni and she’s already talking about having the rest of our family go for upcoming events! Would highly recommend dining here great service, food and entertainment.

Shirasoni is one of our favorite places to celebrate special occasions and enjoy delicious Japanese food. The ambiance is always fun and energetic, the chefs are awesome, and the staff is super friendly and professional. Never a dull moment dining at Shirasoni. For authentic Japanese cuisine and loads of fun, look no further!

The waiting area has poinsettias. Fake ones. Christmas season is over. The food was good. Our server didn’t come back until we were done to check if we needed refills on our drinks. Our cook was good, engaging, tuned in. The place looks like it needs a good cleaning. While we were waiting for our chef, I was looking around. I had a good view of the area where the chef stands. It looked dirty. Even the switch plate was dirty.
Scrub it up! Make it more appealing.

Food and customer service was amazing. I love how they brought out those yummy potstickers as appetizers. They won me over Hana Japan and Benihana’s with that. Would definitely recommend.

The management there is very rude trying to squeeze 10 to 12 people in one table is ridiculous just to make more money. Service was very slow had to flag down our server about six times just to get drink refills and white rice that we ordered for her daughter

This is my daughters favorite place, and for as many times as we have been here we are delighted to see new cooking routines and jokes. The food is made to order directly in front of you. I am not much for vegetables but i cant get enough here especially with their goody goody sauce

We always have a lot of fun when we come. This last time we came with a group of 9 for a birthday. BEFORE we could finish our meal, the manager himself and staff came and were cleaning the table and hovering around us. It was very uncomfortable and we felt rusehed to leave. I understand it was busy, but we are paying customers and a big group for a special event. Please be more tactful next time. It was extremely rude!

This was our second visit to Shirasoni. Both visits we had a reservation. This time we were seated within 5 minutes - a vast improvement over last time. The food was just as good as previous visit.

They took at least 20 MINUTES to bring and process our payment!! All of us at the table were left waiting for our checks and all while different staff would be coming by clearing dishes, etc. Even if still sipping on water was asked by an older gentleman if I was finished. Found this extra visitor intrusive. It was NOT OUR FAULT that the patrons waiting to be seated had to WAIT for our table to become available.

The final clearing of table and bringing of plates for the NEXT customers should have WAITED until we were gone. You should not cause your customers to feel as if they are in the way.

My wife and I came for her birthday dinner for teppanyaki. At the time of our arrival it was just the two of us and we had the whole table to ourselves which made it even more special. Service and food was good. The only drawback was as we were halfway through eating our meal they appear with a Birthday dessert and the check. Afterwards they kept coming back to have us pay when we were still trying to finish our meal as if to rush us out the door which seemed rude. May only come back for sushi in the bar in the future. Don’t care for being rushed to eat an almost overpriced meal.

In-laws came in town from CO- wanted to stay close to home and not go down to Walnut Creek or Concord. Made reservations but our time kept getting pushed back for other parties that walked in. So an 8:15 reservation turned into 9:15 pm :( . My in-laws were starving and both my both played football games that day too so they were hungry...the waiting made it very hard to convince everyone to stay. But our chef was excellent! Food was great.

I love tappenaki, however, the steak and shrimp was tasty, the steak, cooked perfect by the chef, but the New York strip was not even. Choice grade steak was tough and grisly. More like round steak. The chef was great but for 4 people $182 with a $40 tip for $222, don't get me wrong, tip was more than 20% and overall, great staff, the steak was way too tough. I love the show, the staff was great but seemed a little overwhelmed as we received someone else's drinks and hard to get refill ordered another sapporo at half full, got it after asking twice when empty 10 minutes. Glad he brought water with lemon first.

I give 4 of 5 because of Staff alone, steak, better NY strip, choice grade at least.

Overall the experience was great. The hostess needs to learn to greet just a bit better. She was talking to a customer and they customer went to check on her party. The hostess was waiting and instead of looking at me or acknowledge I exist to maybe say she will be with me in a moment she just stared at the desk. I had to say hello there for her to make eye contact. Otherwise everything else was fantastic! Would go again, will just bring my neon saying I have arrived for future visits.

I would not recommend this restaurant for any special occasion. The service was terrible myself and my husband along with four other patrons (whom we got acquainted with during the long wait.) All agreed service was lousy we waited 20 minutes before a waiter came to our table. Restaurant was hot and stuffy like the air was not working. We never received any water, food was greasy and flavorless. Don't waste ur time or money on this establishment.

I just wish the vegetable tempura had more vegetables and less sweet potatoes. I love the broccoli and zucchini but just get 1 of each while you get 4-5 sweet potatoes.

They ran out of soup by 7:30?? How does a restaurant do that? Soup is included with the price of dinner but there was no offer to make up for the soup. Took 50+ mins for our chef to arrive! We were starving. Place was packed and noisy. Some at our table got their dinner in stages. Rice first then veggies then lastly meat which meant their meal was in stages of cooling off. I had the seafood noodle which had everything cooked together and delivered all at once and was excellent! Their “salad”, also included in the dinner is a joke. Tiny and just iceberg lettuce with slivers of carrots and a house dressing that was boring. Very disappointing.
