Fantastic izakaya food, and great drinks. Feels like a place you would find in Tokyo. Our go to spot in the neighborhood.

Quick service and solid Japanese fare on the menu. Sake options are great just very sad that they no longer offer sake flights!

Attentive, knowledgeable bartenders and staff who help you choose from a wide ranging sake menu and advise on excellent small plates. Highlights included the seared bonito, the fried chicken, the salmon and the pork belly.

The fried chicken was limited one order for each table but tasted so delish which was pitiful. The service was kinda slow probably because of the busy hour.

This is like the real thing, a delicious selection of small dishes, each one better than the other. We would highly recommend coming here if you enjoy typical Japanese food. The sake list was extensive, the service friendly and helpful and the ambiance low key but pleasant.

My business partner and I wandered in and were immediately taken with the room, the music and the vibe. Then the service was absolutely wonderful... friendly, personable and really helpful. My friend knows his food and sake, but our server [Ali? Forgive me if I have it wrong] was a perfect complement. And the food and sake was terrific! We will be back - again and again.

We went on a Friday night for a late dinner reservation at 10pm. It was two couples, and they sat us at a nice table in the corner. We asked 3 servers (including our own) and the bartender for water. They kept telling us they were working on it. i don't know if they had to walk to a water well, but it took a good 30 minutes before we had any water. We had sake and our appetizers before we had water. The sake and the fried chicken were excellent. I would recommend this place for those items, but I would caveat the service.

Shigure is a modern Japanese restaurant. I will definitely recommend the restaurant for both my Japanese and non-Japanese friends.

It was busy Friday night before the President's Day - with nice crowd I almost felt I was in the central Tokyo.
It is "sake bar" but the food here is so much better than some high-end Japanese restaurants. Their daily specials are super-fresh, seasonal, and of course real Japanese tastes. I would always try new dishes and never disappointed. Paired with great sake, I was in heaven!
This is also a rare place you can eat Japanese food late night as the kitchen closes around 1:00 am. We stayed pretty late, but could catch a subway from Canal St Sta. nearby. It was soooo delicious & happy Friday night.

This little place is just south of Canal on Church and everything on the menu was delicious. I have dined all over the world at countless Izakaya and the Tatsuta-age (fried chicken) at this place might be one of the best I've ever had. The Beef tataki (rare seared beef) was just as good. But a typical Izakaya (and to be honest, I'm not sure if that's what we can call this place) should have many more menu choices and that's what we wanted. The sake, shochu and Japanese whiskey selection was tremendous. Maybe it's just a sake bar with great food...it's got Sakebar in the name after all. But the potential for so much more is....... Unless we lived around the corner, we would be hard pressed to come back for just the same menu.

The dishes here are quite authentic and flavorful, we felt like we were in Japan. The Washugyu Tataki was excellent, as was the white miso soup for two, the fried tofu, and smoked grilled mackerel. All were well presented nicely. The atmosphere was laid back, casual, and quiet, the decor was straightforward. I imagine the bar is busier later at night. Aesthetically it is cute but could be enhanced to be more attractive especially as you enter. The service was attentive and friendly. Overall we enjoyed our experience at SHiGure and will definitely return.

Low key and unpretentiously welcoming and very serious in it's devotion to sake. A good place to begin learning with tasty food to help one absorb the alcohol.

I'm Japanese and I have been there several times. The food is authentic Japanese with some modern twists, prepared with care by the Japanese chefs using the finest ingredients. Aji sashimi from daily specials I had last night was so fresh directly from Japan. I also had chef's signature menus like pork belly kakuni made from the first-class silky pork, homey atsuage tofu, SHiGURE salad with nappa and other vegetables, home made smoked salmon - all perfectly executed taking a very long time. So good to pair with the great sake and shochu selection. They have my favorite sake but I also enjoy the sake specialist's picks of newly arrived. Nice decor and friendly, helpful staff. Would love to come back soon.
