Shari is a great place for happy hour, meeting up with friends, or a special occasion meal. Went this time for a birthday treat before seeing a show. Their happy hour menu is excellent and well priced for both staples and interesting rolls, as well drinks (wine & cocktails). Loved the Alaska Summer roll after trying it this time! Our server was great in being able to give recommendations and letting us try wines we were considering. Great ambiance and seating for the most part. We sat on the balcony and it was a bit dark for it still being daylight outside, but other than that it was a great table.

Only con outside of the poorly lit table was the restroom - hard to find and there was a line for both ladies and men.

All in all, I highly recommend Shari, and will be coming back!

We ate here before we headed to a local concert. The parking garage is great to have so you don't have to worry about downtown parking and it was only $2. Happy hour offers foods and drink specials so we both got a couple happy hour rolls and each a speciality roll. Our total bill was around $75 which is pretty good for 6 rolls and a large sake. Service was ok, our waitress forgot our sake and we were upstairs so we had to wait quite a while to flag her down to remind her but she was very pleasant and we loved the coziness of eating upstairs. The specialty rolls were really good and the happy hour rolls were basic but good as well. We noticed quite a few families eating here with small children so it seems to be a good place for everyone to enjoy.

What an amazing place. Really cool decor. Awesome drinks. And the sushi and sashimi were unique and delicious. From thinly sliced scallops that practically melted in your mouth, to baby yellowtail with a cornacopia of other ingredients displayed so beautifully, to rolls easy to pick up and no need to apply soy sauce or ginger as that would take away from what they're flavor profiles are trying to tell you. Service was spot on too! We've been wanting to go for a while and finally had the chance and will definitely be going back.

Really great find in Orlando. A good bet if you are in search of Oriental food. Sushi and sashimi are very good. Small choice of hot dishes (could be more). Trendy white interior - a little cafe like. Good for friends get together, but not for a romantic date, unless feel need to be trendy.

We had dinner before seeing a show and the food was great and the service was wonderful. I was disappointed to see that the cucumber bowl that used to enclose their ginger salad had been changed to just a regular bowl (it was such a visual delight and tasty). The oysters and signature martini to compliment it were spot on!

My only complaint is that there was an obvious smell of old cooking oil. It was so strong that our clothes smelled like oil when we left. Disappointing to say the least.

The Adamame & Chicken were spectacular. The main course “chef special” not so much expected more roles & the sashimi was ok. The worst part were the drinks, all watered down with too much ice. I feel like a bad first experience, going to give jt another try 😙

Went for our anniversary. Sat upstairs it was nice and quiet and we overlooked the sushi bar so we could see them make our food. We arrived for happy and the menu looked amazing. We only ordered 1 roll (ceviche roll) on the happy hour bc we wanted to try new stuff and it was actually my favorite roll of the evening. We also ordered the fried buffalo lobster app, the bff roll, the pink panther roll, and a ume dish. Plenty to eat. We also ordered the sweet potato beneights with cinnamon ice cream and it was also delish!
