We have been to Shiro on several occasions and always found it acceptable but not an experience that has you wanting to return ASAP. The sushi and most entrees are good, I would suggest to try the fatty roll sushi and the sea bass dinner. Service could be better we were at our table for about 25 minutes before being... More

Interesting atmosphere, however the sushi was average at best. Decent service although they left the empty beverage glasses on the table despite bringing a new drink/glass of wine.

I read some the reviews and had a different experience. The food and the rolls were excellent. The take out sushi rolls were excellent as well. Shiro's is a pricey, but I think the food is worth it.

We went to Shiro for Valentine's Day and it was our first visit. We had reservations and did not have to wait when we arrived timely. They were very organized with the rsvp list and the guests were seated quickly. We had sushi and it was very good. Our server was very nice and helpful with selection. The restaurant was... More

Went for sushi. The sushi was not the best as far as roll selection. The staff is very friendly and unique atmosphere. If I go back may get sushi instead of rolls or an entree.

The food was good, but not great. Nothing really made me say, "I want to come back here again". The service was good and the facility is interestingly nice. Shiro has the feel that they know what reputation they had and are thinking that this is enough. A few small things would increase the overall experience for customers and more... More

I have frequented Shiro for 15 years. I used to absolutely love it and often recommended it to others. Tonight was a grave dissappointment. I shared a birthday dinner with a large group, which we had reservations for. The staff was terribly unprepared- barely visiting our table, taking lengthy amounts of time to take and deliver orders, and could not... More

I have been going to Shiro for years with my girlfriends. A few months ago, my husband and I went together. It was his first time there. One of his first comments to me was he was surprised I enjoyed dining at Shiro. He then pointed out how dirty it was inside. I had never really looked around. I don't... More

Very few Japanese restaurants compare with Shiro. The unusual setting in a beautiful old house lets you know you are if for a treat. Beyond the setting the service is impeccable and very helpful in making your outing a memorable affair. Sit back and enjoy the finest Japanese meals you will ever experience. Start with a superbly prepared sushi followed... More

If you ever went to Shiro when it first opened it was a beautiful beautiful restaurant. All the charm is probably still there but hidden now. Everything needs to be polished cleaned or painted. I just had an appetizer and left
