One of my absolute favorite sushi spots in Naperville! Love their Monday half price deal! Great service every time at the 59 location.
Make sure you make a reservation or expect a wait-it’s totally worth the wait but just better to make a reservation.

Tried to use a coupon with a gift card, and was not allowed to. A gift card is usually considered like cash, not a promotion. Not happy! That is a lousy company policy.

6:30pm reservations, requested Reg dining table, seated immediately. Friendly front staff. We eat here all the time. Restaurant did get busy. Enjoyed their “Featured” and “weekly” specialty rolls. Always something New! Last night didn’t run so smoothly. The fried rice generally is served first but last night the kitchen dropped the ball. Didn’t arrive until we were almost done with our meal? The check was incorrect. Used their coupon which wasn’t discounted on the bill. Disappointing experience. The mgr did apologize.

We went to Shinto to celebrate my birthday. As always, the food was plentiful and excellent.
We've had our chef before and he's excellent as well.
Our server had the annoying habit of saying things like "What will WE be having tonight", "Would WE like another glass of wine?", "Are WE finished with our plates?". My daughter is a teacher and my husband is a journalist; it was particularly frustrating for them. Unless you're sitting at the table with us, are part of our group, you are NOT part of WE.
When dinner was over, we were served a birthday dessert, but I declined their offer to sing.
Great place for a group of family or friends and their food makes them one of the best hibachi restaurants around.

Our cook was not very good, not interactive and he made out rice and dishes extremely salty. Also added too much soy sauce to the point of unbearable.

Overall the food was ok kinda pricey for what you get the chef was intrusive and overhearing my conversations with my date and I also don’t appreciate the waiter and chef making rude sarcastic remarks to me “ oh I seen u here before many times why you have a different date now “ it made me feel uncomfortable when I’m with my date . It is none of the chefs or waiters business .

The waiter was rude and unfriendly I asked for pineapple juice for drink then he snapped and said yes it’s coming from the bar so u have to wait ! . Then when I asked for a bag and two boxes to pack my leftovers he cut me off and said I’ll be back without listenjng to what I was asking for but he didn’t come back and was rude and unfriendly . The chef was also unprofessional kept telling me “ oh I’ve seen u here before many times !” In front of my date and this is very unprofessional and made me feel very uncomfortable and offends me . I think the chefs have poor boundaries in what they say to diners.

I have been to this restaurant several times. The food is usually very good. The service is spotty. We have dined on the sushi side and hibachi side equally. The last time we went was for hibachi on my daughters birthday. I’m not sure we will be back. We made reservations for 5:30 on a Thursday. We were given a warm welcome by the hostesses. Expectedly the restaurant was quite empty. Despite this, we were sat at a hibachi grill with another family. There was no reason for that. The service on the hibachi side is VERY slow. My daughter requested fried rice but was served white rice. It was very difficult to alert anyone to this. The server was robotic and uninterested in our dining experience. He stood in one location and we had to basically shout out our orders to him. The chefs here are always good and entertaining. However with 2 different parties at the same table ordering multiple things it just didn’t work. By the time my husband got his salmon, the vegetable were cold. My tofu was delicious but served by itself due to the disjointed cooking process. Also, two of us nearly fell due to a thin layer of very slippery oil on the tile floor. Previously the grill we sat at had food stuck in the sides. The place needs a good cleaning for sure. Overall the experience was only fair and I wish we had gone somewhere else to celebrate.

Everything would have been perfect, chicken was a little over cooked at the table. I guess that’s to make sure it’s not under cooked.

6:30 reservations arrived early seated immediately. Friendly front staff. Must try their Special Sushi Roll of month. Great food & service. Our waiter Adrian was most attentive. Another enjoyable dining experience.
