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.

Birthday. I was a little disappointed with an incident with a server but would still return.

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.

I think all the hype is just cause the name is cute, there's nothing that special about this place.

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

I love this place, I will be back. My boyfriend and I enjoyed ourselves. The food was amazing and so was the drinks we really enjoyed our sangria pitcher sooooo worth the money.

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.
