As usual the food was tasty but this restaurant is slipping . We went their for my grandson's birthday to enjoy the food and usual cooking show for hibachi style but were let down. The food was good but the cook did not do anything special like toss the shrimp or other such things. And when he moved to another table to cook he did. So the whole family was disappointed...no fun. Also the wait staff was very attentive to a fault. It was like they were trying to push us out of the place. some of us were not finished eating and she was bring take home boxes and the bill. Won't go there for a long while . Would expect the usual fun for the high prices but we did not have it. Also note that this restaurant did not credit the points for open table to my account. Be aware of these oversights if you book with open table.

Excellent service and tasty meal. My wife and I took our daughter for her birthday. She loved the Hibachi table and show put on by the cook. Excellent choice.

I went to shinto tonight and was disappointed. The presentation was very lackluster and the rice in the special rolls were so mushy. Even if it’s half off special rolls on Monday, it’s not worth it because it’s very low quality.

Everything was fabulous other than the couple who were making out and touching other inappropriately at the table. We had young children with us and there actions weren’t appropriate.

I have celiac disease and asked for gluten free. I appreciate that I can ask for that accommodation. The gluten free substitute was amazing. The rest of our party and I had a great time. The food and service ate always excellent. We will be returning again soon.

Food is always amazing. Hibachi cook was very talented as usual. We had a reservation and they still made us wait nearly 25 minutes. I wasn't sure what I wanted to order and my friend didn't want hibachi, so when the hostess asked where we preferred to sit I told her it didn't matter. She told us to choose. We decided we'd prefer to watch the show and opted for hibachi. When I finally decided what I wanted to order it didn't end up being hibachi. The waitress rudely pointed out that neither of us had ordered hibachi, laughed and rolled her eyes at us--in front of the rest of our table. For the bad service I had no issue leaving less than 20% tip.

The server (michael?) was very very good. He explained everything and offered options to us.

After dinner we wanted to sit at empty high rise table in the bar area to have a drink and chat more and were told that we couldn't by one person and that it wasn't a problem by another. They were marked reserved but the bar area was fairly empty. We didn't want to sit at the bar since it is more difficult to talk with 3 people. In short, Shinto lost business because we went somewhere else.

One of my absolute favorite sushi spots in Naperville! Love their Monday half price deal! Great service every time at the 59 location.
Make sure you make a reservation or expect a wait-it’s totally worth the wait but just better to make a reservation.

Tried to use a coupon with a gift card, and was not allowed to. A gift card is usually considered like cash, not a promotion. Not happy! That is a lousy company policy.

6:30pm reservations, requested Reg dining table, seated immediately. Friendly front staff. We eat here all the time. Restaurant did get busy. Enjoyed their “Featured” and “weekly” specialty rolls. Always something New! Last night didn’t run so smoothly. The fried rice generally is served first but last night the kitchen dropped the ball. Didn’t arrive until we were almost done with our meal? The check was incorrect. Used their coupon which wasn’t discounted on the bill. Disappointing experience. The mgr did apologize.

We went to Shinto to celebrate my birthday. As always, the food was plentiful and excellent.
We've had our chef before and he's excellent as well.
Our server had the annoying habit of saying things like "What will WE be having tonight", "Would WE like another glass of wine?", "Are WE finished with our plates?". My daughter is a teacher and my husband is a journalist; it was particularly frustrating for them. Unless you're sitting at the table with us, are part of our group, you are NOT part of WE.
When dinner was over, we were served a birthday dessert, but I declined their offer to sing.
Great place for a group of family or friends and their food makes them one of the best hibachi restaurants around.

Our cook was not very good, not interactive and he made out rice and dishes extremely salty. Also added too much soy sauce to the point of unbearable.
