Amazing food but really slow service

Melody, June 8, 2019

The spicy tuna makimono roll and salmon sashimi were great. The yellowtail was okay.

Kate, June 4, 2019

Food was delicious! We had salmon & konbu onigiri, and unagi sashimi.

Katy, May 25, 2019

Shiki is a small, intimate restaurant with superb food and an excellent sake list. Service is very friendly and helpful though a tad slow at times.

Terry, May 19, 2019

great sushi and great service. two thumbs up!

Michael, May 19, 2019

The food was good - autentic Japanese. The service was perfect. I do not like a basement, but this restaurant was as nice as it could be in a basement. the location is great.

Ulla, May 19, 2019

Shiki has wonderful service and excellent fresh vegetables and seafood. Loved my meal.

Saffron, May 16, 2019

The lunch Chirashi was good but the amount of fish was minuscule.

Great food and services!

Patta, May 12, 2019

Helen, May 9, 2019

Very authentic food and service was great. I ordered something I had never tried before and the waiter gave me tips on how to best enjoy it!

Maren, May 6, 2019

Good service, good food, nice atmosphere and decor. I'd love to come again and try some more dishes.

Deva, May 4, 2019

It’s a great place with friendly staff and yummy food. I plan to go again.

Annie, May 4, 2019

The food was delicious, as was the sake. Great-tasting ginger dressing with a generously-sized garden salad, fresh and tasty tuna roll. The tempura was one of the top tempura dishes I've ever had: perfectly fresh and crisp batter on the shrimp and vegetables with a delicious dipping sauce. The vibe was bright, comforting, and happy. Quite crowded and a popular place on a Thursday night. Attentive and polite staff. Only drawback is that it got very loud; hard to hear your dinner partners talk.

Becky, May 2, 2019

delicious food great customer service

Rachit, April 30, 2019

Shiki is a hidden gem!

Wendy & Tim, April 28, 2019

The friend I brought here described the cuisine as "authentic Japanese as possible outside Japan". The service was nice, food really satisfying.

Alicia, April 27, 2019

Welcoming staff, pleasant atmosphere to enjoy conversation over lunch. Nice lounge music in the background and attentive service. Sashimi, miso soup, and seaweed salad all delicious. First time trying, and will definitely go back.

Paula, April 11, 2019

Authentic look, feel, and taste. Cozy little restaurant a la Japan.

Fred, April 10, 2019

Absolutely delicious, good mix on traditional Japanese plates, quick service, friendly and welcoming environment

Mary Katherine, April 3, 2019

Great food, service and cozy. More authentic vs. Americanized Japanese. I'll be going back!

Marcia, April 3, 2019

Excellent food, very friendly servers. Unfortunately the meal (just sushi) took over 30 min to come out. They were very nice, but don’t expect a quick meal!

Elisheva, April 3, 2019

I had the Ikameshi, which was delicious. Portions are on the small side for dinner, otherwise, a really pleasant and relaxing dining experience.

James, April 2, 2019

Food was solid (unagi nigiri and takoyaki were the best), but it was hard to get service's attention throughout the meal.

A, March 31, 2019

Thanks, we really enjoyed dinner at Shiki. I love that you serve water without ice. The maki rolls were very fresh and delicious, as was the tofu. We also had the fresh rolls that could have been better with some kind of sauce.

Deb, March 30, 2019

The food was delicious and the service was great!

Susie, March 29, 2019

Despite being a busy evening with a full restaurant, the customer service was great, and the waitress was very friendly. Nice, light and delicious meal.

Ellen, March 28, 2019

Portions were small but fine given it's an expensive place. Cashier accidentally didn't take off my $15 from the bill initially so I had to return to the restaurant to get credited, but not a huge deal.

Jingwen, March 28, 2019

I had never been to Shiki. I have been thinking about sushi and wanting to really like it. I don't always know what to order. The server gave me some great advice, and I had a truly wonderful meal and experience! I love them!

Uzma, January 12, 2019

My sister and I enjoyed Shiki very much. They had different Toro options as their special tonight, we ordered two pieces of nigiri each. Since it was cold outside we decided to go with the udon, which hit the spot. The wait staff was very friendly and the food came out in good time. Overall a great experience.

Rachel, January 11, 2019

We had a nice meal here. The yellowtail and spice salmon maki were delightful, vegetable tempura also tasty if a little undersized. Good service.

Not your usual Japanese place; lots of small plates, fresh fish. Sticky rice wrapped in squid, winter odeng special, nice futomaki rolls. Good stuff!
