My family has discussed going to this restaurant for quite some time, but were not sure how the kids would like it. After taking the kids to a hibachi on vacation, to good results, we decided we we'd give it a go.
Everyone had a great time. The kids all loved the restaurant, even our almost 2-year old. The food was very good. My wife and I got filet mignon, I got mine with the salmon as well. The children got chicken and steak. Overall the food was very good. The fried rice and veggies were excellent. The filets were very tasty, though they came out well done instead of the ordered medium we both asked for. The kids loved the chicken and steak and the shrimp that come as a standard appetizer.
The surprise of all surprises is that we found out that our oldest son would actually eat brocolli. You just have to throw it in his mouth first! : )
There were five in our party and we were seated at a table with another family of four. I've heard complaints about having to sit with strangers, but for us it was fun. The chef was very entertaining and the server was prompt and courteous.
It's true that this place is not cheap, but it's definitely worth the price paid. You're paying for good food and good entertainment. Shogun did not disappoint on either front.
