Slowest Service Ever, Average Sushi

We waited over 1 hour to get our sushi on a Wednesday night. The service was poor at best. The sushi was average. I have no idea what some of these people are talking about. We will not be returning. To make things worse the waitress took it upon herself to add a $40 tip. We were a group of... read more

The hijiki seaweed salad is amazing. Enoki mushrooms were good as well as the vegetable udon - lots of fresh, still a bit crisp, veggies.

My wife and daughter and I had trouble finding an appealing place to eat in the central plaza area but my daughter likes Japanese and Chinese food so I searched on my phone and lo and behold, Shohko was close by. We went inside, were warmly greeted by the hostess and ended up having a very nice meal. I don't... More

A couple of gals and I went in on Feb 24, 2015 at 6:15. It was during restaurant week so we were happy to try the special menu. It took the waitress 10 minutes to bring us water after we asked for it when we sat down. My friends and I all ordered off of the special menu. Two of... More

The special dinner menu for restaurant week has the fixed price of $30 and states it is a $49 value and it is absolutely true. The menu offers you a choice of three each of appetizers, main course and desserts. I chose the seaweed sesame salad as my appetizer, the assortment of 15 piece chef choice sashimi and the three...

Shohko Cafe is a special place for my wife and me. Having first met her decades ago in Boulder, Co, we reestablished a long-distance relationship and when I came to Santa Fe in 2008 to meet her she chose her favorite restaurant, Shohko, as our rendezvous spot. We’ve returned to the restaurant many many times since then for romantic evenings... More

The menu is impressive, and the tempura was great. We were disappointed, though, with the sushi. Had heard raves from friends in the past, so maybe it was just a bad night. Ambiance, service were quite good.

The only downside to eating here is if you are on a budget. Everything is superb and it is tempting to linger and sample many items off the menu.

We've been several times recently and two things seem very consistent: The food is wonderful. A large menu and almost everything has met or exceeded expectation. The service is slow. I think this is because the kitchen is a long way from the tables, complicated by a long, narrow path leading there, with the sushi bar on one side and... More

We were driving through Santa Fe on our way home and stopped for dinner at one of my longtime favorites, the Shohko Café. I am gone there for meals for over 30 years and have never been disappointed. My favorite is shrimp tempura which is always more than I can eat and a wonderful mixture of shrimp and assorted veggies.... More
