Great sushi and atmosphere

This was our first experience at Shiro. It isn't your typical modern and eclectic sushi restaurant. It is situated in an older Victorian style house, which made it interesting, albeit a little drafty and cold in the winter. But the food made up for sitting next to a cold window. The best meal of... read more

The food at Shiro is always excellent and it's one of our favorite places. It's also romantic and has great ambiance for a special occasion. We don't eat out often and we like to try new places, but are often disappointed with the food and don't return. Not so with Shiro. It never disappoints and the prices are reasonable for... More

From the moment my husband and I walked in we were treated like VIP guests! Our waitstaff was extremely attentive and made sure our every need was met. The sushi was very fresh and it was sliced and seasoned beautifully. Our entrées were DELICIOUS and the presentation was absolutely perfect. The desert really blew the top off of our experience...

This is a great restaurant! The service is prompt and friendly and the food is excellent, fresh, and creative. I also love the setting of the restaurant - an old mansion, it's very romantic and nostalgic. They also have a great, trendy bar with a wide selection of liquor, wine and sake. This is a great place for a date... More

Walking up the steps to this once grand old house was an experience in itself. Service was friendly, food very well done and fresh. prices moderate. I had the White Castle roll..I know I know, very fresh ingredients, well made and pleasant serving appeal. Their shaved ginger was excellant-so fresh! A table of 9 ladies, we shared several appetizers, then... More

I was in town for a conference and met a friend there for dinner. We walked through the door and the maître d greeted us with, "Do you have reservations?" At that point I actually did; I wasn't sure I wanted to eat somewhere where "Welcome, good evening or hello" weren't standard. We said we didn't and he said, "We're... More

I love this place!!! The food is always fresh and the wine prices are not out of control like several places.

Service was horrible. It was like the waitress didnt even care we were there. But then again when you write down your order for a server you dont get that personal touch to it. Sushi was good. Was disappointed by the kiss of fire roll though. Was hoping for more spice.

This restaurant sushi was not authentic. I recently visited Japan so probably I have higher standard than others. We tried Dragon roll and sushi dinner combo. Dragon roll was not bad and the fish can be fresher. The waitress was interrupting us too much so we could not have conversation there. I would not go back there again.

My husband and I went to this restaurant yesterday, we ordered sushi for two. The fish did not look very fresh, it was a little dry. The sushi had tons of wasabi and the octopus was over cooked and hard. Our waitress came to the table all the time interrupting our conversation and we had not yet finished our meal... More
