Excellent arrival/hostess experience. Nice table near window - server was very polite in offering to enter our order before a large party - both she and the food runner were very kind. I am sure it is covid related but I think there was only one server for upstairs so it took quite a bit for wine order and wine service/no water refill. But, would absolutely dine there again - great atmosphere.

Excellent flavors, best sushi I’ve had in years. The staff were so nice and kind, even went out of their way to print some tickets for me which I’d forgotten to do at home. Really went above and beyond!! I will def come back.

We had several sushi rolls which were ok, but nothing to write home about. The music was very nightclubby, which wasn’t pleasant. Service was courteous and quick.

We’ve had Zeppeljn delivery many times but first time dining in. Quality of food is always good and consistent. Service was also very good - very attentive and friendly. I gave 3 stars for 2 reasons - one, the place is so loud. You can barely have a conversation and you have to constantly yell and repeat what you say. Its like being at a club. It was not comfortable dining experience at all. Second is the value of food/drinks. Although their sushi is good, I think they are very expensive for what they are. They also put so much markups on Sake. I get that a business has to survive and relies heavily on alcohol sales but some of the Sake prices and markups really put me off. Overall, good experience but I don’t think I would go back to dine in there.

The venue is nice decorated and they walk us to our table right away. The service was great and the food is served in good portions and was delicious. We didn't order drinks as we were working early next day, but will definitely try next time.

I probably wouldn’t come to the restaurant if they didn’t have karaoke.
The food and the service were pretty average, but the karaoke was GREAT! We loved the ambiance! Dave was an excellent host!

Zeppelin is consistently delicious and fresh. I love the mix of food that provides options for everyone in your dining party. The outdoor seating is comfortable due to many different space heaters that keep it warm while allowing you to sit in the open air. The cocktails will sneak up on you too. They’re so delicious and deceptively strong.

Wasabi and ginger portions too small. Miso soup actually really good. Fresh fish and well cooked rice. Cucumber salad good but a bjt too soft.

The sushi was great, cocktails were good, service was good, but there were tons of mosquitoes and not the best outdoor seating vibes. I know it’s not necessarily their fault, but it did affect our experience. Maybe a insect repelling candle would’ve been nice

Had a super fun night celebrating my daughters birthday upstairs at Karoake. Dinner was delicious, drinks are great, and it's lots of fun. It was pretty loud, even before Karaoke started, which caused us to scream at each other. But still super awesome.

One of my favorite Shaw spots. The sushi is always delicious and they have a great variety. They may want to think about heat lamps as it gets colder. Our server tonight was the least friendly person ever. We wanted to ask if he was ok. Other staff picked up the slack though, and this is not my usual experience here. I generally love this place and would definitely recommend it if great sushi is what you're after!

If you are seated near front door - expect to hear loud slamming as people and servers go though. They need to fix that.
