Likely the best fine restaurant in metro Phoenix. The best ingredients and the overall quality of the place made our visit remarkable.

My husband and I chose the 5 course menu. The food was delicious, unusual and nicely presented. The service was excellent. However having experience it once I don't think I would try it again it wasn't stellar. I've tasted better sushi in Scottsdale.

ShinBay was a good place to try, but at the price, it was not exceptional. The restaurant itself is nicely set up, but the ambience was a bit barren (perhaps because it was a Thursday night). The menu is only Omakase, and we chose the...More

I will be short: this is one of the very best restaurants -- if not the best -- in the metro Phoenix area, and arguably one of the best in the U.S. I had the four-course meal, and it was simply excellent. The attention to...More
