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.

Came here for a Valentine’s Day dinner date with my boyfriend. We came early and were seated on time for our reservation. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive. For our drinks we both ordered margaritas, which tasted great. We ordered 2 orders of the fried wontons, which were great. For our entrees we ordered chicken & broccoli in garlic sauce with white rice and general tsos chicken with white rice. Both were great. For desert my boyfriend got the chocolate lava cake which he loved, I got the Apple caramel tart which was okay. I’ve had it before and it was better, so it seems like a hit or miss order. Overall I love Shi and I will continue to come there regularly for good food, good service and a good ambiance.

Unfortunately, this time around wasn’t as good as our first one - after we were seated, the hostess came around and told us that we would have to leave by 9:30 because they were so booked. We should have been told before we were seated. On top of that, the food was not as good as before. The shrimp and prosciutto fried rice tasted bland, like someone forgot to season it. Everything else was okay, but not great.

I didn’t appreciate the person who checked us in told us that our table was gonna be needed for the next customer by 8:30pm. What kind of nonsense is that. I came for a nice evening with reservation only to be told that I have to leave by 8:30pm. Thank God I like the place otherwise I would have left and enjoy my evening somewhere else. PS didn’t hear anything more about the 8:30 nonsense. Please the need to know no one rushes to eat it’s not a work break 😡😡😡😡

Staff was rude. Attempting to clean table while my husband had a full plate, asking him what they could take. We have always loved SHI, you can’t beat the view. Food was mediocre at best, something has changed. No longer concerned with quality only profit. The customer also is no longer the priority. I never provide feedback but I felt the experience will stop us from returning and thought you should know.

Fantastic food and drinks and wonderful service. The downside was that we were there as a wedding was breaking up and the noise level made it hard to have a conversation as the wedding party remained at the bar.

The food was ok but service could have improved. If restaurants book tables to a certain time of night, even the last slot should be treated with the same quality of service as the first reservation that day. Simply do not give patrons the choice of booking a table after a certain hour if you are going to rush them, and or tell them the kitchen is closing and to hurry up.

My family came to celebrate my Dad’s 60th Birthday. We had two little ones in tow and we had such a great time because our server was amazing. She and everyone made sure that our party had a wonderful experience. They were so thoughtful and everyone sang him Happy Birthday. My Dad was so happy. We ❤️SHI!
