After a long travel day from NY what's better than fresh sushi and a cocktail. Amazing flavors bursting in every bite. The carbonara fried rice is so delicious it is a 'must try'! Wonderful friendly service coupled with fresh sushi and an eclectic Menu!

We were there with local friends. We were warmly greeted by the owner and staff. The food is simply eye-popping. We went crazy for the specials. Sake, soju and beer selection was outstanding. We will be back!

You arrive, you're shown to your table. Water is delivered along with a delicious complimentary vegetable juice shot. Amazing. So, here's a tip. Open the menu, close your eyes and let your index finger...or any finger, really...fall on the page. Open your eyes and whatever...More

Shiso offers a great happy hour from 3 - 5:30 p.m. The chairs are extremely uncomfortable at the tables. The Wait Staff is a bit too small town carefree and often are not readily available unless you call one of them over. I had to...More

Shiso is the best sushi restaurant in Sonoma County. David is the best waiter in town and made our date night experience very special. The mac daddy roll is delicious and the wine list is great.

We have a small space with the inside dining room that seats 36, our patio is an open garden with 25 seats. There is one part of the dining room that is almost private. Not sure what you mean by quiet.
