I can just go eat all the appetizers. Food is always good. We've been going for years now. It might me a little noisy towards the weekend. But Monday was empty and quiet.

The food is very good, reasonable prices, a beautiful view of the city. What I did not like, is that I made a special order on my reservation, we wanted a table in the window and a small dessert because we were celebrating a birthday, they did not have consider my request

The wait staff is very polite, helpful and patient. Valet is very rude and does not come out to greet you upon arrival. Hostess tried to tell us with an attitude we didn’t reserve the right amount of seats when we explicitly described our party as 5 in the notes. Food was not good and we tried various plates, from sushi to chicken, beef and shrimp. Appetizers were ok but better than the entree plates.

As a first time customer I was very pleased with the service, the food, the surroundings, and the ambience being right on the water. I do think charging $16 or $17 for the general Taos chicken was a little pricey but nothing too crazy. I understand there’s a lot of overhead being in a prime area of the city so I get it.

Food and main waitress was fairly nice and sweet. However, they started sending bussers every ten minutes to ask whether we finished dining or not while my dish and cocktail was obviously half way done. Needless to say, if I was done I would had left even if they begged for staying longer. Being busy restaurant is one thing. However, I don't think any patron will be happy to be rushed out.
I have respect for restaurant business and their desire to increase table turn around. At the same time, as a guest people also should be able to enjoy their experience and conversation in any restaurant. If I was holding the table for obnoxious amount of time, I get it. However, sending bussers every ten minute and asking whether I was done while they can apparently see is not pleasant. SHI is not fast food restaurant and management should aware of these type of stupidity.

Our table is by the window. The night view of Manhattan was great. The atmosphere and candle light is amazing. Only downside is that I was nervous for our first dinner date.

We used to love this place very much. The food is good, the service is great. However, the portions shrank and I believe the prices went up... but the service stayed great- the servers are very attentive and extremely nice! Let’s keep this will stay the same. It’s a great neighborhood place for fusion food.

My boyfriend and I had a night out without our kids and we decided to have dinner here. We enjoyed every minute of it. The music was great, I was the designated driver so I only had a glass of wine, him on the other hand had several cocktails and he stated they were strong and f#$@ing good Lollllllll . I had a flight to catch the next morning and we were seated and served in a timely manner, that was definitely a plus

Everything was great except for my waiter. She was rushing everything, so I felt like I didn't get the chance to really enjoy my time there. The reservation was close to closing time but I feel they should of accomadate the customer's time or have the cut of time for reservations at an earlier time.

It was my first time there, however, other people in our group had already been. Very nice ambiance & food was great. The Shi Breeze was very good. The waitress could have been a little more attentive and personable but overall a lovely evening out with friends.

Great location. The decor was lovely and it’s a big restaurant. It can work for both big parties yet it has corners for more cozy dinners. Food was really yummy and reasonably priced. Will be going back again to enjoy the bar!

I wanted to surprise my husband for his birthday and made reservations at SHI. Everything was lovely.

My only hesitation is how unknowledgeable the hostess was. I’ll message the restaurant privately and would recommend more staff training on her behalf.

In any case, we will definitely be back! The sashimi was amazing, some of the best we have ever had. Our server was delightful as well. We had heard nothing but fantastic reviews from friends, and we will continue to spread the word!
