Fun and light

Shi offered a great menu with lots of selections. The food was good...but be prepared for lots of small children. The bar area looked like it was 'adults only', but the restaurant had lots of baby carriages--which could be a good thing, if you have small ones!

The ambiance is more for a date night then for a night out with girl friends. The tables were really close together, if I tried to... More

It was our first night in town and we were looking for a satisfying meal. The apps were great, but the entrees were not very flavorful. Setting is really beautiful great decor and views

My boyfriend and I went here with another couple. The service was great and the food was delicious. It was very reasonably priced. We had a seat at the window and the views over looking Manhattan was amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant

I came across Shi searching for a spot to eat not too far from me for a business lunch. I didn't know what exactly to expect. This place is amazing! I don't know why it has $$$$ as the price for the food was VERY reasonable. For a group of 4 people it averaged about $40 a pop and we... More

The prices are on point for a good sushi place: $6 - $12 rolls. They're delicious! The atmosphere is nice & romantic. Great views of the Manhattan! Love coming here.
