Shinjuku Station Ratings and Reviews
Everything was great. Started off with the Tok Fries and Tempura appetizer. They were both fantastic. I'd go back just for those. They had $5 margaritas (happy hr) that everyone loved. I got a sake tasting that was really good. We then just had them start bringing out their most popular rolls till we said stop. They were all so good it'd be hard to chose just one. We will definitely go back soon.
Had a reservation and then when we got there, we were told that it would be just a few more minutes. Which turned into 45 minutes. They said people were taking longer than usual, but instead it seems that they just did a poor job of projecting when to seat people and how many to seat. After we were seated, it took 15 minutes for our drinks to be delivered. Some of the food we ordered was pretty good (the tok fries, the ceviche, and the sushi), but the other items were just OK.
Ate here about a year ago and wasn't too impressed. Figured I'd give it another try. This time around service was absolutely horrendous. Food average. I would not recommend this restaurant. Good for hipsters, that's about it. I have never submitted a review even close to this poor for any other restaurant.
Second time here & we love love it!! Josh was our server this time & we gave him full access to order for us. His knowledge of the restaurant & menu is outstanding, he was fantastic! Cannot wait to return.
*If you're a meat & potatoes kind of person, this is not the place for you.
The tok fries we're amazhing. Best thing they have by far. A must order.
The pork steamed bun dish also excellent.
I've had better shishito peppers but they were still good.
Onto the last three dishes we got:
1. The scallop tartare- was ok, needed more flavoring. Wasn't crazy about the cracker they came on.
2. The king crab roll- was different. Didn't care for it that much. The sever recommended
3. The Hama chili was disappointing overall. The fish was not that cold (key). I've had much better in Cabo and at uchiko in Austin (the standard)
Was a little disappointed but still decent overall
Food was great, the waiting service was awesome. But the hostess were pretty rude. I know SS gets pretty busy in the weekend evenings, but I'm sure by now (however many years they've been open) they can have a better approach when talking to customers and provide decent hospitality and service.
It started with me asking for o-cha and the response from the waitress was - what's that? Japanese tea I said. We have hot green tea she says. That's what o-cha is I said. And it went downhill from there. The food here is expensive but bland. The menu items seem to be a poorly executed attempt to mimic some of the great food items from Uchi. No dish that we ate, from the miso salmon crudo "special" to the Ishiyaki to the Karaage to the Hamachi Kama was especially tasty. Yes, I'm Japanese. Yes I've grown up eating sushi since the mid 70's both in Los Angeles (including with Masa Takayma in the late 80's and early 90's and other well respected chefs) and in Japan. Yes I have high standards when it comes to eating Japanese cuisine, and I realize this isn't the west or east coast, but a great city like Fort Worth deserves a far better Japanese cuisine experience than this.
second time, as a party of 8-10, we have been seated as a long table next to the door---DRAFTY, and SNOW was coming through the large space between the door (facing Magnolia)!!! Despite this, both times, they have told us we couldn't be seated elsewhere....meanwhile, there were several tables available that could have been put together to seat our group.
FOOD IS FANTASTIC, and we are a very generous group (in both our ordering and our tip), but I think this is our last visit there. Their inflexibility to seat us elsewhere in the space is poor customer service. Especially when that customer is spending $600-700.
We were told our server was busy but we weren't in a rush so we didn't mind. He gave fantastic service. I had their weekend special drink "spiked chai tea" and it was perfect for the cold night it was. Food was good! Probably ordered too much but it was all worth it! It is small and cozy but busy so it can get loud! Great find for sushi!
Unique sharing plates. Reminded me a lot of Cannon Chinese Kitchen as far as how the place presented itself (I still prefer Cannon, though). Shinjuku-rita was exactly what you'd expect from an overpriced craft cocktail, not nearly strong enough. Tok fries were flavorful (with a kick) and delicious. Octopus was charred but juicy. Felt the burnt flavor was too much at times, but still overall tasty. The Chef's Special Candied Jalepeno Roll was simpler than I expected. I was prepared for something much spicier, but I'm not complaining. Finally, the quail eggs were beautifully presented. The waiter was great, giving us tips on specials all along the way. I was very impressed with everything. Plan to come back for lunch so I can try the Ramen
Who brings a baby to a place that bills itself as a "Japanese gastro-pub?" The people sitting behind my husband and I, that's who. It made our "special sushi date" a little less special. It was a bit stuffy inside, and this was not helped by the sizzling beef dishes ordered by those around us. My sushi was good but a bit warm, which always makes me wary. Inconsistent spice level on the spicy tuna rolls that we ordered. This place is good but clearly coasting on its hype.
