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.

Restaurant doesn't know how to manage their reservation system especially on holidays. Had to wait for 30 minutes just to tell them we had reservations and another 20 minutes before being seated. Customers at the other tables were loud with foul language and no employee said a word. Staff seemed overwhelmed and not prepared mentally for the Job. Really considering not returning.

Salad tasted fresh, love the ginger dressing. My husband had the Banzai - NY steak, Sheimp and Chicken. I would definitely come again.

We had a party of 25 and had reservations at 8:30pm however we were not seated til 9:45. I even called the restaurant to confirm our reservations. They ended up having to seat our party separately which was a disappointment because we were celebrating my nieces birthday. They knew we were coming, they should have held thwir largest table for us. We understand their need to accommodate all guests however waiting over an hour for to be seated on confirmed reservations was disappointing. However to accomodate the long wait, the manager comped our soft drinks and appetizers. Aside from the very long wait, our servers and chefs were amazing!

I was so disappointed, I wasn't able to eat at this location...it almost ruined my Valentine's night. We made the reservation thru Opentable 4 days ahead and set it for 8:45 pm. We got there 20 min before our reservation and the place was packed, lots of people standing in the front, the hostess were running like chickens with no head. I do understand so caos due to the holiday but it was just crazy; we got to the front desk said that we had a reservation at 8:45 pm. Well they said that they had people waiting that had reservations too and were seating people with 7:30 pm reservations...WHAT!!!!! they were taking reservations for walk in people and adding them to the list. They said that Opentable sucks that they were allowing people still make reservations up to that minute and didn't have a way to stop it. They said I had to wait at least and hour to be seated and they close at 10pm. that is crazy, who's fault is it Open Table or the Restaurant? We end up leaving and went to a different place.... Crazy place I am telling you, Don't know if I can count on OpenTable reservations anymore

I was just taking my son out because it was Valentine’s Day and daddy is deployed a lot. My only complaint is more vegetables if you order the vegetable tempura. It was pretty much just a whole bunch of starches deep fried and I was looking forward to broccoli (we got 1 piece), zucchini (zero pieces), onions (1 piece). Other than that everything else was perfect.

I reserved well in advance per the open table app only to get there and not have my name on their reservation list so then the host just wrote my name at the bottom of the waiting / walk in list. I seen a friend from high school there who had reservation for 45mins before mine reservation was and they still had not been seated. This place does not know how to schedule reservations or they just purposely double book them.

We made a reservation and it was so packed in and outside the restaurant. When we were finally able to get to the counter they were very disorganized and we were told we would have to wait 20-25 minutes and we had a reservation. I thought that was the purpose of a reservation. Bad experience to say the least. Don’t go on a Saturday evening if you want to get seated, be in a comfortable environment, and eat.

This was our Family New Year Eve dinner.

We made reservation for 8:30pm. We arrived at 8:10pm. When we arrived we were told that it would be 10 to 15 minutes for us to be seated. That was perfectly fine with us because we had arrived early. Well, that was not to be. We were finally seated by 9:30pm. The chef started cooking around 10:00pm and we left the restaurant at 11:00pm. We, were the last guests in the restaurant. Not happy with this.

Love coming here for birthdays and such. It’s a fun experience and the food is great and so are the drinks. Try the Washington Apple. Kids really enjoy it too. And if you have a cool cook like we did it really is an awesome experience. Only downside this time, was that service was a bit slower than usual but because we had to wait long they gave us the edamame appetizer on the house.
Highly recommend.

We went to Shirasoni Saturday night and to start we were SHOCKED by how many people they SMASH into each table. The teppan dining tables are set up with two grills and a large C shape table, our 1/2 had 16 people seated at it. Probably would comfortable fit 12. The chef was very good, super fun. The fish dishes were good as was the chicken and shrimp. I did not taste the filet mignon but was told it was good. The New York steak however was TERRIBLE. Too tough to chew it. My youngest son ordered the kids terryaki steak which was cut in strips and he almost cried because he could not chew it. If they improved on the steak and seated less people I would rate them much higher. (My guess is that they were way over fire capacity)
