    I brought clients here for a business dinner and we all did the fixed tasting menu. It was phenomenal and allowed me to try different fish that I wouldn't have selected myself. The atmosphere was quiet and the server was attentive. Each nigiri comes with the wasabi and soy sauce already included and was perfect.

    Tasting menu was incredible. My only complaint is the 90 minute table time. While the service was excellent 90 minutes is a bit rushed for 9 courses.

    My partner and I had the omakase experience and it waswonderful! The sushi was fresh and our server was very thoughtful when he noticed I was new to trying wasabi. He offered to remake my sushi and I was extremely grateful 😭 Sushi shio has my business forever and ever, thank you so much for making my birthday special! ❤️

    Good food and service but greatly overpriced. Surprised to see a tip automatically added for a party of 4. Very cold and dark inside. Strong smell of chemicals you don’t expect at a restaurant - probably cleaning or disinfectants.

    Booked a table at the counter, expecting to have an omakase experience with the sushi chef, but instead sat at an unmanned bar. Took over 10 minutes for anyone to come welcome us once we were seated and once someone did show up it felt rushed and impersonal. Food was good, but not as outstanding as expected given the price.

    Overpriced for mediocre sushi. We had the 7 course omaksase menu and were disappointed in the average selection of fish, it’s freshness and in particular the seasoning, by which I mean the soy sauce and wasabi. It was supposed to have added already by the chef but was indiscernible and there is nothing worse than eating nigiri sushi without soy sauce. Also make sure you check your tab for an added gratuity before you add a tip - for our party of four(!) 20% was added.

    Absolutely wonderful tasting menu. Service was outstanding. We will definitely be back! A new favorite to us. We chose the patio seating due to Covid. It was fine given the low case counts. The table was lovely & well set. There were a few plants making it feel a little bit like a garden. The heater after the sun went down was perfect. Unfortunately, it could use a little attention to be as beautiful and spotless as the restaurant interior. Many restaurants made accommodations when Covid started; it is time to up your game! There are beautiful, safe outdoor dining options which are much nicer than this. The air flow wasn't as good as we'd hoped for, due to a dirty sun shade covering much of the patio blocking the breeze. I wouldn't go back when case counts are up, unless they redesigned it. But while case counts are low, this is a great option. Definitely get the tasting menu!

    The omakase chefs tasting was incredible. I ordered Supplement A: with the uni and wagyu. The only thing that doesn’t get to the 5 stars is the yuzu panna cotta. My friend and I were not impressed and were expecting something more nuanced. Nonetheless I’ll be returning with more friends.

    The PRO - Friendly, attentive service The CON - The restaurant reused a previous non-Japanese venue. The sushi bar is thus not purpose-built.

    Came back for a night when the wife was craving sushi. Did two of the Shio Omakase and added the Wagyu course. Fish and ginger quality was good. Non-nigiri pieces in the omakase ranged from good to excellent. Rice didn't blow me away. Good wasabi portions. Decor was cute. Overall value: not bad - I'd at least recommend to try this if you can find parking nearby.

    Sat at the counter and had the omakase. Nigiri were delicious, as was everything else on the menu. We splurged and had all the add-ons which made the dinner expensive (250+ per person, including 1 beer and 2 premium sake glasses) but worth every cent.

    On a Sunday night at 5 PM when they just opened is when we went in. We were the only ones in the restaurant so the service was very attentive, but felt a bit lonely. We had the tasting Omakase menu of 7 courses for $95 per person. The scallop starter with seaweed was excellent. The first course of nigiri was very fresh and superb but the second course was not as spectacular. I did love the toro bruschetta, and we did not need the extra caviar supplement. With the pannacotta dessert, we were stuffed.

    As a sushi fan who always dip a ton of soy sauce on my sushi, I struggled with the pre-seasoned sushi the chefs put on. Don’t get me wrong, the fish quality was FANTASTIC and you really get to taste the fish and not so much of the soy sauce. I’d just set up that expectation first for anyone that hasn’t had fancy sushi before. Love this spot, will come again.

    Overall the chef did well on Omakase set. Especially on all the small appetizer dishes were surprisingly beautiful and tasty. However, the nigiri presented on wood plate looks not clean enough and serves 5 pieces at once not like omakese but normal nigiri set. Nigiri used pretty common fishes and simply use soy sauce and wasabi for seasoning, taste good but not impressed.

    The chef tried to "improve" sushi, which is hard to do. Instead of showcasing the fish, the omakase meal was about the chef complicating things, including overseasoning the nigiri (wasabi and various sauces/condiments such as yuzu zest were pre-applied) and putting sansho (numbing pepper) in the miso soup. The condiments often overpowered the fish rather than complementing it. We would have preferred traditional sushi. I felt the meal was overpriced, and the wait staff seemed to be rushing us out.
