This place is good. Not spectacular and not a dump. It's a fine place to meet with friends, eat mediocre sushi and have a drink. Lots of seating areas so you can find the vibe you're looking for.

Great dinning atmosphere. However, the selections are limited. I would suggest pair desserts with coffee/teas to add more to the menu

I was not impressed. Everything was just “okay”. I wouldn’t go back, because it wasn’t worth going the first time. Everyone was seated on top of each other. The waiter didn’t really seem interested in his job. It felt like we were annoying him when we asked questions. The food was subpar. The drinks needed help. Everything about the place was mediocre. I do not recommend.

Food was great, drinks were slow- however there is a shortage of employees in the tri state are so no judgement or complaining- just try to be patient and understanding.
Ambience great and desert was yum!

Food was not very good. My dish was bland and my date’s was obscenely salty. Service was attentive but very very rushed. For example, 1 minute after I was served my entree, someone asked me if I wanted a box for it. It was still steaming and clearly untouched. Made for an uncomfortable experience.

Another great experience at SHI! My husband and I came here for my birthday dinner. We wanted a delicious dinner with a classy but relaxed ambience and SHI never fails to deliver just that. The servers were all very friendly and helpful, food and drinks were surprisingly delivered shortly after we ordered and was absolutely delicious. The place was packed with people all enjoying themselves but the noise level was not overwhelming at all. We could still hear the music which was also not that loud and enjoy our own conversation. Our experience here is always 5 stars!

I have been dining at SHI since they first opened. This is truly my favorite restaurant. However, my experience was not what I was used to seeing at SHI. For starters, I had a 7:45PM reservation. I was having trouble finding parking ( if you are from this area you know how difficult it can be). SHI use to provide Valet parking, but since covid occurred they have not. Nonetheless I reached out to the restaurant at 7:40 explaining I would be late because I was finding parking. Upon my arrival (8PM), I was told that I would have to finish my meal and leave by 9PM, by the host. I explained to the host, that I wouldn’t be done by 9PM, because I normally order various items. After sitting down, and ordering; we received our meal and the service by the server was great. As we are eating our meal, the server comes over to us , and states “ Hi I know you have ordered quite a few items, but I was told that you agreed to get up by 9”. I told her I never agreed to that, as I told the host I was not sure if I would be up by 9 after sitting at 8:05, and getting our food by 8:30.
The host then came to our table and began to argue with us, stating that she told us that we would need to get up by 9 and we were 15 minutes late for our reservation. She then stayed that no one ever gives her an issue when she tells them that they have to leave by a certain time. For starters we were still eating. We ordered more then 6 items. Secondly that was extremely rude, and there is a HUGE sign as soon as you walk in that states the sitting time is 90 minutes. Even if we were late, and we are counting from our original reservation, 7:45-9:00PM is not 90 Minutes. After going back and fourth and explaining this to the host. She then states that due to covid SHI doesn’t always honor the 90 minute sitting duration. This is completely unacceptable. If you are not honoring one of your polices in which you have displayed to your customers, then you should take down the sign or add a disclaimer.
