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

Shiro is not a typical Japanese restaurant; it's located in a historic 1929 mansion built by Charles Rogers, the inventor of condensed milk. The central grand staircase evokes staircases of Civil-War era southern plantation homes. Seating in the mansion may find you in any one of several rooms, upstairs or down. Shiro's several menus are long-ranging - specials, sushi, mains,... More

On Mother's Day, I wanted to surprise my wife and kids to a new restaurant and my wife wanted Asian food.

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

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

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.
