Chef Sushi Special was just basic fish like salmon and tuna. Nothing out of the ordinary. Really disappointed had been wanting to

The service was good, and the noise level was energetic. The food did not feel like elevated Chinese as much as just Chinese.

Pros- Beautiful ambiance and great customer service. I was seated quickly upon arrival and easy to reserve through open table.
Cons- Both appetizer and entree were flavorless. Drinks were average.

We've been here many times and never disappointed. The cocktails are great. You can't go wrong with anything you order. Sushi is always fresh. One of my favorites is the cubed steak.

My boyfriend and I showed up 10 minutes before our 9:30 PM reservation. I went up to the hostess stand where after 3 tries I finally was able to give the hostess my name over the loud music int he lobby. She kindly told us that our table would not be ready until 9:30 PM which was absolutely fine and understandable. She told us to sit on a couch in the lobby while we waited. 9:30 PM came and went, then 9:35, the. 9:40. The hostess came up to us to apologize for the inconvenience and asked us if we would like something to drink while we waited. We politely accepted and she handed us a menu and said “you can just go up to the bar and order and pay there.” I was certainly not expecting a free drink but it seemed like that was being offered to us. We decided to not go to the bar and continued to wait. By 9:50 my boyfriend asked the hostess when we would be seated. She continued to say our table was not ready so we asked for a specific time. She immediately became flustered and said she would seat us immediately. She finally walked us to the back of the restaurant where we counted 6 open tables. She sat the 2 of us at a 4 top. I sat down first and was fine. My boyfriend proceeded to sit down and stood back up to show his pants soaking wet and covered in rice. The bus gentleman quickly ran over to apologize and cleaned the chair. At that point we have had it. We went back up to the hostess stand to explain why we were leaving. In an angry tone the hostess said the chair was wet because it was just cleaned to which we asked “do you clean your chairs with rice?” The manager was also at the stand and did not say a word to us. I watched as she marked our table from occupied to open and simply walked away. I usually am very understanding when restaurants are busy over booked but this was just insulting and disgraceful. On top of all of this the returner did not check for proof of vaccination and was very crowded given the current CDC guidelines.

Great service and food. The view from the window seating area wasn’t as previously described - no real water view. The music inside was annoying and impossible to have a good conversation. We moved to an outside table which was nice. Would definitely return.

We specifically requested a window table for a special occasion when we made the reservation. When we arrived we were told the window tables were being saved for reservations...which we had. Our server was very lovely and helpful. The food was not as good as it was the last time we were there, the quality left a bit to be desired. The fried cauliflower was overdone and mostly bread. There were several large groups that were incredibly loud and there were young girls in the bathroom who had clearly been overserved, they were blackout drunk. I wanted to bring my sister here because I had a great experience last time I came to Shi, but she was disappointed and I was too. 👎🏼

The food was exceptional. My boyfriend loved the crab rangoon & garlic chicken. The evening was perfect. Our server was great too. The only minor inconvenience was it was a little too warm. Otherwise, highly recommend.

I have visited this place maybe 5 times on different occasions. This time I'm completely turned off. I returned a shrimp order because the shrimp tasted horrible. Then as I'm looking around I see cobb webs by the window by our table. So gross It's a restaurant. The fried wontons tasted like old oil.

The food was great. I had The Gantry roll and California roll. The salmon was fresh and good quality. My boyfriend had the General Tso chicken. The portion size was very large and well prepared. The service was okay, nothing special but got the job done. The food was brought out very quickly. The restaurant is very loud inside . It did not have a view of the water. I would recommend the restaurant, because the food was very good.

On the whole enjoyable. Love the food but unfortunately it comes out too fast. We’ve learned to first order appetizers and wait to order the main course after we’ve finished the appetizers.

Unfortunately we did not have a good experience. I came here before with my husband and decided to come back for father’s day but our service was not good. He was not attentive, the food came before our drinks (guess he forgot) just wasn’t a pleasant experience.

This place is good. Not spectacular and not a dump. It's a fine place to meet with friends, eat mediocre sushi and have a drink. Lots of seating areas so you can find the vibe you're looking for.
