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.

We waited 15 minutes even though we had reservations at 9pm. We were squished. The server asked about any bday, we said yes our child Jacob. Drinks were forgotten. Long wait between sitting and hibachi entertainment. The food was excellant. Our sons borthdayvwasnt remembered and that was disappointing. We reminded server and then didnt see him again. The room was also was being cleaned up while we waited for bill. Felt in the way. The hibachi cook was great.

The overall experience was mediocre. Being a Saturday night, they were more interested in hustling people through. The cleanliness of the place is definitely going downhill as well. Not sure if we will frequent it as often as we have in the past.

I made a reservation for this restaurant based on the great reviews. I have to say I was a bit disappointed. It wasn't bad, the food was good and the service was very good, however I have been to other Hibachi type restaurants with better food and much better, more upscale, ambiance. I was a bit disappointed in the high prices for the ambiance and food that we got. Especially in Naperville, there are definitely better Hibachi restaurants. I likely will not be going back.

The food was great, but so many additional charges that I don't get elsewhere. I felt for the price I paid, I would be getting a higher end type restaurant,and better portions- but I feel it is over-priced for what you get. I get better plates for less at other steakhouses in the area.

We are at the Hibachi table but waited 30 minutes to get a chef due to someone at the table requesting their friend who worked there to be the table chef. He just started cooking for another table so our table had to wait. Although it was inconsiderate of the other person to request everyone wait for him, Shinto management should not make an entire table wait for service, it ruins the experience

As always, Shinto doesn’t disappoint. From the excellent food to the service, Shinto continues to be a favorite for my wife and I. Last time it was the season Cupid Role we fell in love with, this time it was the Snow Mountain Role. That thing was amazing. We’ll continue to go back and recommend it to our friends and family.

Shinto is by far my FAVORITE restaurant, it never disappoints. The atmesphere, the good, the staff ALL are amazing. My fiancé & I love going on Tuesday’s for their hibachi special. Chris is our favorite chef & David is our favorite server! They’re both always on top of their game, friendly, funny & just very enjoyable to be around. They both always do an amazing job. If you go on a Tuesday make sure to request Chris as your chef & David as your server!

We had to wait twenty minutes even though we had a reservation?! What is the point of a reservation if you still have to wait an exorbitant amount of time? Our pager buzzed so we returned to the host desk. The host said he accidentally buzzed us. We were a little irritated with the entire situation. Everything else was wonderful.
