    Incredibly delicious sushi. Fresh, simple, well-made. We had a few other dishes that were also good (the scallop & cucumber salad and miso soup). The service was wonderful. My sake was also delicious. I wish they had a few more non-alcoholic drinks available, and the ambiance could have been a little bit "warmer." But, that's really nitpick-y. The food was amazing!

    Beautifully executed tasting, but some of the flavor combinations and fish choices fell flat. The "Pièce de résistance" of the courses - Toro tuna with black caviar and gold flakes on toast was especially underwhelming. I found the combination of flavors and textures not working well together. While individual ingredients were probably great, the sum of parts did not do them much service. Speaking of service, it was excellent! Overall it was a good experience, but for the price, the food could be better tended to.

    We were hoping for a better experience. Everything was just "ok". It was a bit too bright, the fish didn't seem as fresh as it could be, and the service felt impersonal.

    We first dined here recently because we wanted sushi outdoors (covid precautions) and had to come back right away, it was so good. I think this is going to be our regular friends get together spot. The tasting menu is fantastic. Great wine. Service has been so lovely each time and they even celebrated my birthday with a surprise! Traditional Japanese welcome & goodbye from the global staff is so sweet, too. Definitely book here!

    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.

    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.

    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.
