Service was a bit brusk. Place was very loud making it almost impossible to have a conversation. Nigiri had too much wasabi. The fried roll soaked up so much oil it was all you could taste like the oil wasn't hot enough.

As always Shionos didn’t disappoint. It was my husbands birthday, and Shionos is always where he wants to go. We had a large group so I was very happy that the service was on point. Glasses were always filled and no one had a long wait for their food to arrive.

I look forward to Shiono whenever I am in Kona. I found it Years ago by following an old Japanese couple while on my way to chain sushi restaurant.

Excellent food and good service. I would have given 5 stars however the waitress did forget one of our bar drink orders. Other than that the food was amazing.

Terrific sushi! Despite what one earlier reviewer said, we live in NYC where good sushi is common and have had sushi on the west coast and in Tokyo and Osaka. This place is comparable. I watched the sushi chef in action and he’s an artist. If we were going to be here longer we would go back.

I've eaten at the Sushi Shiono at Island Gourmet, but this was my first time at the restaurant. The miso soup was piping hot, and the special rolls were flavorful with thick centers, fresh fish on top, and flavorful drizzles. The amount was perfect for the two of us, and well worth the price.

Server was phenomenal. Oysters in the half shell was the best I’ve had in a very long time. Sushi was fresh and on point. Ice cold beers, and tasty warm sake. For desert we had the MISO BUTTERFISH!! Lol..no but seriously that’s how we ended this outstanding meal, with the Miso Butterfish...sooooooooo ono!!!

The ladies at Shiono are always spot on and know the menu, food and drinks with no hesitation. Very attentive. The food is consistently delicious and flavorful with high attention to detail in presentation as well. I highly suggest reservations or going after 9 when the rush is done and over. Often times, large parties are present during the most common dinner times and it can get loud but service never suffers.

It was busy, but there's no excuse for bringing one guest's food after everyone else at the table had already finished. Asked for water when ordering. It came when the bill was delivered. Waitress brought a wrong order but it was close enough so we did not want to wait another half hour so we said nothing. 10 minutes later a different waitress comes to the table and berates us for having the wrong food. That was our fault? Worst Christmas dinner ever. To be fair, the food is good, but sushi is abundant in Hawaii and there are many places besides a dingy strip mall that serves good sushi without the wait or attitude

You know fish is going to be fresh in Kona, but the quality and level of fish here was beyond amazing. Compares to the top places in New York and Tokyo, and their uni was better than any at the best place in Hokkaido. We may go back a second time this week. Highly recommend.
