We go to Shogun on a regular basis and have not been disappointed. Both their grill section and their Sushi section are very good. The cooks in the grill section are entertaining and engaging. The waitresses in the Sushi section are very polite and attentive. You really cannot go wrong with this place and I see it as a model... More

This was a family affair for an anniversary celebration. There were 12 of us and we had a blast. The food was delicious and the server was very friendly. The chef was very entertaining and did a great job preparing our food. I have been here a couple times prior and the experience was just as good as this time.... More

I've been here probably close to 100 times in my life and very rarely is the food not good. There are many different chefs so you are kind of up to the mercy of which chef you're assigned to. Almost all of them are personable and of course they put on a lovely show, including making a train out of... More

We have had dinner her many times and this was the WORST meal ever. I had breaded pork and ginger salad which came on a lettuce leaf and served with rice. The breaded pork was over cooked, dry and tasteless. My dining partner had beef which was stringy - not a good cut of beef. We will likely eat there... More

We have been to Shogun many times over the years, and never been disappointed. As you walk in, the Shogun warrior armor should be your first clue this place has atmosphere. If not, the spinning water wheel and giant koi pond inside should. The chefs at the tables are hilarious, and my kids love being able to try to spin... More

While it is super pricy its super worth it. Very fresh and delicious. Would recommend all of the food. And the cocktails are delicious too :)

We had a party of 11 and made reservations well in advance. When we checked in the people that work the front desk we not friendly at all. I was quite surprised. After waiting 15 minutes after our reservation time I inquired and was abruptly told -"you're next." We were seated at a grill by ourselves due to the size... More

The people working the front were rude and inappropriate. They make you feel like you owe them something. I wonder if this is a family run restaurant. It's like a bunch of snobs. The food was not up to par. You can get this type of food but better in Rockford. Try hatchi hatchi - or even at the mall!... More
