6/14 @6pm reservations, friendly front staff seated immediately. Must try their Featured “Special” Sushi Rolls. Absolutely delicious! Great food, excellent service from our waitress Brittany. Another enjoyable dining experience.

Sushi was decent but the service was overall very lacking. All entrees came out at the same time as the appetizers that were ordered leaving a very crowded table that we could barely navigate. Drinks were only able to be ordered once and each member of the party planned on ordering a second drink but the server never came back until she came back with the check. Quality of the food doesn’t outweigh the poor service experience for the price.

I thought it was ok. Not as good as I remember. I feel the quality of food has gone downhill. Probably wouldn't go again, but by all means wasn't terrible. Service is always good.

We went for sushi, but I think the teppanyaki attracts an less refined crowd.

Noah was a great server and Chris was an awesome chef. Noah ensured that my husband's sushi came out when my habichi meal was being cooked. Chris made the steak the perfect temp (between medium rare and medium)!

We had a great time! Wonderful service and great chef! My kids ordered shrimp fried rice and said rice on hibachi is better. Wish they could make like chicken fried. Other than that, no complaints!

We frequent Shintos often & have always had a top notch hibachi experience. Consistently great meals. The meat is quality, fresh, decent size pieces of steak, chicken not tiny shards like other places. The shrimp are seasoned and delicious. Salad, soup and fried rice were spot in. Our hibachi chef had mad skills this past Sunday. The best we’ve had here so far. And it’s always good!! Everything was cooked perfectly.
Highly recommend Shintos. We love it.

Excellent service from Kyle and Jaime. The food was delicious! I love their salad dressing. My family and I went there for hibachi. Nice menu with lots of options! In addition, there were also vegetarian/vegan options.

We have been here multiple times and usually love it. It was not good tonight. Chicken fried rice is our favorite. We ordered a side order of it. They came out with two orders and it wasn’t good like it usually is. Plus, we couldn’t eat it all. Our waiter was late to our table to welcome us and constantly apologizing for long periods of not checking in. He disappeared and one point and we just decided not to order anymore drinks. We had one. Sushi was good as usual. Someone else brought us our check we never saw our waiter again. Disappointing for a sporadic night out that we really needed.

For a not busy Thursday the service in the sushi dining area was slow.
The waitress was OK.
The food was great.
But the food wasn't all served at the same time. Some in our party had sushi, some had teriyaki dishes. The teriyaki dishes came much later (15-20 min) and the fried rice that was to come with their dishes didn't show up for another 15 minutes later and only after I asked for the manager. The manager did apologize and comped the rice and gave us a free dessert.
Again, all the food was delicious, I just don't think we will go back because of the service.l from the kitchen. If they are slow on a slow night, how is the kitchen during a busy night?

After many nice lunches here, tried dinner Monday night for the 1/2 price rolls.
The waiter was a complete bozo. He put other people's dirty glasses on our table while taking our order and forgot them there as well as forgetting to put in part of our order. 2 of 3 rolls, the lobster and the heat rolls were relatively tasteless-tending more towards imitation lobster and crab than the real thing. Maybe they are too busy to bother doing it right but it will be a long time before we consider going back there again.

Very energetic atmosphere. The circuses are wonderful and full of energy. Our server was busy with several tables so her attention to us was a little off. The food was very good, and the chef was incredible.

It is a great venue for family, team building, or group dining. If you are on a date, especially one early in the relationship, it may be hard to hold a conversation. The ambient noise is always at a medium roar. Then a chef will flame up the griddle and it gets very loud and hot.

The sushi is wonderful. I will return to enjoy their sushi selection. I just wish they had a larger spicy sushi selection.

Overall, I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
