My sister wanted to take me out for lunch and highly recommended Shota as a great place to eat and a great place for sushi. When we arrived she pointed to the many celebrity comments posted on the walls. Michael J Fox and others obviously had a much better experience than we did.
Our server seemed quite nice as she seated us, but not overly friendly. Once she had taken our order she brought me tea and water and a drink for my sister. We never saw her again. Another server came by to deliver my sister's order and part of mine. The second part of my order arrived after I had finished eating and was ready to leave. I assumed my order had been forgotten and was quite surprised when it did arrive. My tea cup was never refilled until the bill came, even though a server walked right past us to take tea to another person who was seated behind us. No one checked to see how our meal was and on our way out the door the person who had brought the bill ignored us. Although another worker did make somewhat of an effort to say goodbye, she did not even look up from what she was doing.
The food was okay, but not great. Had I received all of my order in a timely manner and had the service been better, I may have enjoyed the meal more, but these things did not happen. As the place was not particularly busy, there was no excuse for the poor service. On the other hand if this is the way customers are normally treated I can understand why there were so many empty seats. I won't go back.
