I liked the place it's just they seem to forget when people order and the food comes late.
Amazing Amazing!!! The food was amazing! I came to visit my sister from Florida and my sister and brother in law brought me here for dinner and Wow!!! The food, ambiance, the atmosphere the presentation of the food and service were all amazing! Looking forward to come again once I am back from Florida.
Bento box has a great variety including salmon teriyaki, potstickers, tempura, grilled veggies, rice and salad. Great value!
Tory our waitress was awesome and the food was delicious! And the hostess is always there to greet everyone. Thanks again for a fun evening.
The food was excellent and the ambiance and music was very upbeat , just what we needed after long day of work .
Shakou always excellent sushi. Love the black rice options as well.
Wonderful service! Very helpful and friendly staff! The food was delicious and well prepared!
Despite our reservation and specifically identifying a special occasion (anniversary), a table hadn’t been reserved for us and nothing was said about or done for our anniversary. However, the food was as always excellent.
Great service, excellent food!
Love the atmosphere
The food is always so fresh. The service is always so prompt, pleasant, and professional. It is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.
Great service and good time as always. Chicken teriyaki was pretty over done. All the food was great otherwise. This is the first time food has been below par and we’ve been many times. Still a great restaurant.
In the last month we have eaten at Shakou on a weekly basis. We love the option of black rice on the sushi and the overall menu selection. Great ambiance as well.
Highly recommended !!!!
All top notch !!!
Shakou was excellent and met our expectations. Food was delicious and staff was amazing.
Kitchen was backed up so it took forever for our apps to come. Waitress was nice and brought us free miso but we were so hungry and it took so long to get food. The biggest issue was the loud electronic music. Ruined the atmosphere entirely. We decided to leave after the apps finally came.
Birthday celebration- service was amazing and the food as always was tremendous
Meeting some special friends
Lunch is one of the best bargains and lunches in town. Way to go!
The food is good but you really have to like the constant head-pounding pulse of EDM music in order to enjoy it. I'm not likely to return because of it.
Elegant, roomy, night club like atmosphere with creative Asian-fusion takes on sushi. Menu has a page showing all gluten-free options. Above average taste and presentation. We started with an endamame appetizer which was a large portion and properly cooked. We followed this with the Ocean Drive and Urban Heat rolls, both spicy and flavorful. There was a decent selection of wine and we opted for the 14 Hands Merlot from Washington State. Prompt, friendly and responsive staff. This is a popular restaurant area of Libertyville so parking can be difficult.
The service was outstanding!!!
The wait staff was courteous, friendly, well informed and made us feel welcome and quite comfortable.
La señorita q nos atendio se perdia no tomaba bien las ordenes siempre decia yo nose deja pregunto no nos daba respuesta los asientos incomodos tuvimos q esperar una hora y media para q trajera lo q hacia falta en nuestras ordenes q mala experiencia..! Ya en comido en este restaurante en varias ocasiones pero esta ves si fue de lo peor
We have been to Shakou many times and always enjoy the food and the service. The hostess always greets you with a smile and they always go out of their way to make your experience enjoyable. They do their best to handle special requests and remember your preferences. We went there Saturday night for our anniversary and they even sent a desert on them to celebrate. Great sushi, food in general and great atmosphere and service.
Awesome! Great service and food.
Great menu! And, the quality of the food is always excellent. The short ribs and sea bass are extraordinary and have to be tried. The front desk and table service are excellent. It is our first choice when we are going out with special friends or for a special occasion. The only challenge is that it tends to be loud.
We love Shakou! Always great service and great food!
The noise level was too loud - unable to hear the people sitting across from us in our booth. The music could have been at a lower level - that might have helped
Our first impression was terrible based on an issue with seating and the obnoxiously loud electronic music. The entire staff seems miserable. I didn’t see a single person smile throughout the entire experience. We spent $245 (including tip) and it wasn’t worth it at all. Our anniversary wasn’t acknowledged by anyone which was really disappointing especially because it was noted on the reservation. The sushi was phenomenal which is too bad because we will never be back.
We love this restaurant! Awesome service! Great people! We love hostess Debbie! The food is perfection
Amazing can not wait to come back for my daughter’s birthday.
Wonderful experience. Filet was spot on with flavor and cooking temperature. Grilled vegetables were perfectly tender and seasoned nicely. Looking forward to our next meal!
Food was absolutely fantastic!.
What is up with the music? Music was horrible, and load. Loose it.
Birthday dinner for my daughter and the food was great! Great selection of wines and drinks.
Music felt like we were in a club and a little loud, but not too bad .
Service was excellent, food was good. A bit pricey.
The food was very good but the service was not that great our server only came to give us drinks and food he barley checked on us but he had time to check on everyone else
In my opinion, the braised short ribs are the best I have eaten and I have had them at many restaurants. I like the Bento boxes for lunch and the cod sandwhich. The mango sorbet is out of this world delicious and refreshing - a great way to end a meal.
A bit too loud, but great value for this kind of food. The quality of the ingredients is excellent along with the taste and presentation. The “look” of the space is chic!
It was our second visit and we will be back. The service and food was perfect.
