Shiro Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Loved my experience at this restaurant . The employees were amazing. Very attentive and super genuine. The food was delicious as well. The best thing I ordered was the Ponzu Catfish. Would come back again definitely for a date night or girls night out again !
Although the food was excellent, because it was New Year's Eve special, the options were limited, and the 3 course meal was overpriced. What would have normally been about $60, was $150. We did enjoy the jazz music, and don't know if they were regulars or a special for New Year's Eve. Oysters were especially good. Seafood plate was good, but small in quantity (2 shrimp, 2 scallops, and 2 very small pieces of lobster). Will be back on a normal night to hopefully enjoy the good food at a lower price and smaller crowd.
I have always loved this restaurant. Although I have never had the catfish, for which they are famous, there are SO MANY other wonderful treats that will tempt your palette. You can bring your own bottles of wine for a $20 corkage. BUT! They do the most amazing "Cosmo". All around it is an amazing dinner and Kerry is the best wait person.
Shiro is a true neighborhood gem. Shiro continues to offer an outstanding, high quality, innovative menu. We especially love their appetizers and their amazing fish
choices. The ambiance is relaxing, quiet and serene. The service is impeccable. Highly recommend Shiro.
Been goin on our anniversary for 25 years not every one but at least 5.... great food good service. The whole fish is legendary The halibut was fabfantastic and the ribeye was cooked to perfection. Worried the place is not attracting ANY younger clientele .....so many folks at retirement age. So different marketing tactics might help. In any case it was full so maybe thats not their thing. I will of course be back
This group of friends has dined together before at Shiro's, and it was again picked as a birthday celebration venue. Several of us enjoyed the John Dory, which none of us had tasted before. The waiter was very solicitous, and funny, and the ambiance is great. I have an unusual allergy, and the waiter was very helpful in checking out what I could eat. I truly appreciated that.
We were very happy we could hear each other talk, which is more and more rare these days, it seems. I'd like to return to try a couple of the other options that others tried and loved.
We had the pleasure of eating at Shiro's again and were even more impressed by the experience. First, we could actually visit with our friends so not too noisy. The cocktails and wine list were great. The appetizers amazing; two of us had the special ravioli with black truffle shaved on them. Then three of us had the signature catfish dish. Altogether, a great experience and we recommend it highly.
