    I went to Shi once in 2017-18, back then I remember it being chic trendy and actually good. I went to shi today to celebrate seeing family I haven’t seen a long, long time. Let me tell you, the food was subpar, the service abysmal, and the drinks were just OK. As soon as I walked in the host asked if I had a resy, I did, but she yelled at me when I said the time- anyway she was rude and improper. The food itself, not at all what you would expect from a place in LIC. The sushi spots on 30th Avenue are exponentially better. The saving grace was the sesame chicken. That’s should tell you everything you need to know. The quality has dropped, the views are still nice though.

    The ginger mojito I ordered did not taste like a ginger mojito. When I asked to send it back because it tasted more like tequila instead of rum, our server looked at me like I committed a cardinal sin. The flourless chocolate cake was a disaster, and the food was overpriced and not tasty. I had high hopes and was extremely disappointed.

    The hostess as she was seating us for our reservation says I am going to need this table by so and so time. Not a very pleasant way to be seated when you hear that you are being rushed out before you even sit.

    First of all, the views and ambience are stunning. The food was fresh and flavorful. Fried cauliflower, chicken satay and beef satay were my favorites. The server was very attentive. Two thumbs up definitely would return.

    The sushi and ambiance are good and a good value. The service was not great - the waitress recommended a basil dish with chicken and beef - it was a bad combo.

    The overall ambience is GREAT. The music & the vibe was great! The food was okay. I'm a big sushi girl and felt it could he better however the shrimp tempura and the spicy snow crab rolls were 10/10. The drinks were straight liquor.

    Corporate backed pan-asian cuisine that doesn't have a culinary identity. Staff did great, but the menu was a confused novel, the food was only so-so, and the steamed bao was a soup dumpling. The playlist made me feel like I was in a Panera Bread. Great views though!

    Elegant space for the type of cuisine for the area. Drinks were terrible. I ordered the Hi-Ya Marg.. tasted purely like syrup. Lychee Martini was probably the best item out of everything ordered. Food was bad. Sushi did not taste fresh. Bao Buns had no flavor, and the sauce had a horrible, pungent smell. The Shrimp Dumplings were big, but lacked in flavor. Vietnamese Noodles were good. Ceviche was ok, no value for your money, just gave about 4-5 thin slices of fish on a plate dressed in a ponzu sauce. Cheap presentation of the Banna Rolls for dessert .. apple tart was fantastic. Overall, food was bad, drinks was bad, service was alright... still have a pungent taste in my mouth since yesterday. Tasted like old sushi. Won't be returning nor recommending.

    From the moment my friend and I sat down, we kept being interrupted while speaking to one another as if we needed to order right away. Once we paid our bill we were asked to leave so that someone else could be seated at our table. I cannot recall if I have ever experienced that kind of rushed service before when dining out--something I rarely get to do the last 3 years because I am a mom of two young boys. To feel like we couldn't relax while eating and drinking at our table, which competing five star restaurants allow their patrons to do, is poor customer service because making your customers feel welcomed and comfortable is the bare minimum. It's not likely I'd recommend dining out there to anyone I know, unless they just want a drink at the bar. The fact that I took the time out to write this review means I feel stifled by my rare night out to catch up with a friend. Perhaps my review will bring awareness to the restaurant about prioritizing customer service.

    From the moment we were seated, our waitress was unfriendly, cold, and abrasive. She spoke to her counterparts in her language and ignored us. When she took our order, I informed her that it was my daughter’s birthday and she seemed uninterested and practically ripped the menu out of my hand. Surprisingly, when we ordered dessert she actually sang Happy Birthday to my daughter- it was the only time she showed us an ounce of respect or kindness.

    Came into the restaurant to try out the food and atmosphere as a potential birthday location. We ordered vegetable soup, general tso, triple mushrooms, and cheesecake. The soup was bland, the entree was okay, the kicker was the cheesecake had ants crawling all over, we told the waiter and she was very causal about it , she said she would take it off the bill which was a given but still charged us the full amount for the other items. I can only imagine the lack of cleanliness of the kitchen. Patrons beware.

    service was good but if you’re a person of color i would watch out . i had reservations pretty early in the evening and the place was basically empty. still, i was sat in the back two tables away from the kitchen and not in a booth. other than that, food was amazing, server was nice, good ambiance, and cute for date night.

    Shi was one of our favorite restaurants. Everyone that worked there when it first opened were very welcoming, attentive and polite. Food was well presented, delicious and the service was great. Our last night experience was completely the opposite. A few of the items on the menu were not available and our appetizers were served about 7 minutes apart as well as our entrees. Hoping to go back and find the welcoming and warm atmosphere that characterized Shi.

    Our party of 4 had a lovely, unrushed celebratory lunch! The restaurant was quiet at 1:30 PM, the time of our reservation. All of our food was well prepared and delicious. We ate several appetizers including squid, edamame, lettuce wraps, crispy rice with raw fish, and some sashimi. All APP orders were large enough for sharing between the four of us. Main courses varied from sashimi/sushi to curry duck and crispy cod. For dessert, we shared a flowerless cake and a delicious creme brulee. The drinks were varied and well made. My only complaint was a specific part of the service. The main courses were not brought out together. Those who ate hot entrees sat waiting while the cold sushi/sashimi was delayed. Other than that, service was attentive yet not intrusive. Shi is worth more than one visit!

    The sushi was well prepared. The duck dish seemed to be made of a lot of scrap pieced with lots of chewy, inedible pieces. The meat in the Pho soup was also very difficult to eat. It was thin, but very hard and plastic like. One of the young lady employees walked by my seat and I think accidentally kicked my chair on her way to the kitchen. It startled me, but what I found strange was that she didn't say excuse me, but seemed to find it funny. I made the reservation, and didn't remember that we previously visited this restaurant. When we walked in I remembered the place and previous bad experience. I decided to keep an open mind and give it another chance, but we left disappointed.

    I gave the place a 10/10 to my boyfriend, they really had me pleased. Up until I got up to leave and the waitress comes back to me to tell me that I didn’t include the tip on the card with a very nasty attitude. I had left the tip in cash on top of the table and pointed to it. She didn’t know what to say after that. The food was great but maybe some people should be reminded about manners when it comes to tips.

    The food isn't anything special, it's a typical Asian restaurant. However, I was really angry with the Asian female server who had purple ombre hair. After giving us the menu, she suddenly took it away and passed it to the table next to us because we weren't looking at the drink menu. I felt pretty bad. Also, no one paid attention to our table, they were kind to the other tables though. This is the worst service experience I've had in the US.

    Food was great! We had a few apps then split the sushi & sashimi for 2. Fish was fresh and perfect amount for 2 people. Skip the Saké - it’s too inexpensive and tastes cheap. Made my partner sick. Service was pretty slow and I always had to call someone over.
