very disappointed. the interior looks like an office space. the menu is short and uninteresting. the crab salad on julienned cucumbers was too salty & oily. my friend's Atantic salmon tasted of dill and nothing more. my special filet mignon in a shallot reduction was not memorable. the presentation of the food was sloppy and sad. i did see many tables with the much talked about catfish which, taste aside as i've never tried it, looked ridiculously out of proportion next to every other entree. a family style sized serving calls for similar options on the menu. the lady next to us looked quite embarrassed as her husband's entree was 1/10 the size of hers. we, without hestitation, passed on dessert. and, for the price, there are so many better options. Hideo Yamashiro's other restaurant, Orris, is a winner, though. the food is fantastic there. maybe he's left Shiro's kitchen unattended for too long.
