Our hibachi table was very dirty. The signs on the table were gross, I had to ask the waitress to remove them. Host was rude. Then there was a hair in our dessert. We normally love this place but we had an overall unpleasant experience this time.

We love Shinto: the hibachi, the sushi, and especially the egg yolk sauce. The only problem we encounter is the timing of the food coming out. They can’t seem to get appetizers out ahead or everyone’s dinners out together. It makes it feel rushed. Great people and great quality food.

Went to Shinto for their Tuesday night special ($12 hibachi) without super high expectations - BUT.... they delivered. The meal along with the hibachi preparation was terrific from start to finish. No skimping on portion size and the selection of beef, chicken, shrimp was welcome. Meal included soup or salad, your choice of meat, steamed rice (fried rice is an upcharge).

Our empty bowls from the soup and salad, along with our empty glasses were piling up . Our server did not come around enough to collect them and even when he did come around, he brought refills without asking, which was nice, but never took our empties and we were left with little to no room. Even after requesting that he take the empty dishes, he would leave several empties, and fail to come back for them.

It was just average. It found it strange that the server kept serving us from across the hibachi grill.... I had to stand up and reach over to get my soup and salad from the waiter- instead of him coming behind us and placing it right in front of us.

Good food, generous portions. I, however, recommend the hibachi. The first time we dined there we ate at the hibachi table. This time we did not. I think the food is better at the hibachi tables. you also have a better selection of seafood. The food was good but I like the hibachi better.

Shinto has been a sushi favorite of mine for a couple years now. Since moving further from the Naperville area I’ve been unable to visit as often as I wished. Monday was my first visit in about a year and I was pleasantly surprised at all the cool new improvements. The patio was up and running, the reservation/wait process was smooth. The staff and waiters were just as friendly as I remember and the food was even better with some of my favorite sushi rolls just as good as they were 2 years ago. Atmosphere is great for a normal dinner date or as fun as a birthday dinner with friends. Love this place can’t rave enough.

Service was slow and poor. We didn't get our soup and salad that came with our entree. When we mentioned that we didn't get them the server just said sorry and walked away. We were charged for food that was not ordered also. Over all the experience was not worth the money we paid.

I arrived after our party was already seated for hibachi. I asked for a glass of Pinot Grigio as there were only food menus at our table. Shinto has a house wine and 3-4 options in addition. Needless to say when I was charged $24 for 2 glasses of Santa Marguerita, I wasn't happy. Not a good waiter and hopefully not Shinto's training.

There are quite a few local sushi restaurants, but we travel a little further to enjoy Shinto. A very nice modern ambiance, some very innovative sushi selections, and some very good daily specials combine to make this a regular stop for us.

Your evening at Shinto will go much smoother with a reservation as walk up wait times can get pretty lengthy, especially for the Monday sushi special.

Came here for a friends night out and Shinto did not disappoint! We arrived early and hung out at the bar. The bartender Joe was phenomenal! Very friendly and knowledgable when asking for recommendations. When we moved to our table, our server Adrian was fantastic. He joked around with us - which with me is a necessity - and was super accommodating. My two friends and I are all in the restaurant industry so it can be difficult to impress us while dining. Both Joe and Adrian far exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be returning! :)

We eat here often. Reservations honored on time. Friendly staff. Food always good. Must try the specialty roll of the week always a great value. However this time our service was terrible. Our waiter took our order, then disappeared??? We needed to flag down just about anyone to get a simple refill. Other tables didn't have our problems. Truly disappointing! Ordered dessert, which never showed up. Our waiter eventually wound up bringing the check. He said the kitchen was backed up. Really...what poor excuse

Monday night 1/2 price sushi. Even though we had a reservation, it was crowded and we expected more of a wait. But the staff got us seated within 5 minutes of our time and that was fine. 1/2 price only applied to the standard rolls of which there are plenty to choose from and the nice thing now is they can substitute soy paper for the seaweed (which I find bitter). The Chicago roll, Lobster roll are my favorites. But, dragon roll and others with eel sauce are also good. Service can be a bit choppy simply because of the crowd, so order a few plates up front rather than pace them out.

Nicely done meal. Way to load to have conversation with anyone at table, but that is the nature of the setup. Ambiance would have improved if they closed the drapes , spent meal looking out a a parking lot and if kind of took away from the authentic decor. Chef was very engaging, meal was cooked as requested, swerved attentive.

The service was good, but the food not so much. My fried rice had pieces of hard rice. The food was okay, but not necessarily good. I had swordfish hibachi style. Husband had a combo. My daughter loved her udonnoodles. This place is overrated and too expensive for the quality of the food. I am glad that I had a Groupon discount. The experience was nice, but I would not go again.
