This is a great place to bring a family to. We had a 3 and 7 year old and they were mystified by the fizzing pop and bento boxes. They also enjoyed trying to use the chopsticks. The staff were very attentive to our table...More

Horribly rude and arrogant front desk staff. Worst treatment I have ever received at a restaurant. We called ahead and were told they were not taking reservations until 8, but that we could come and wait and they could get us in in a few...More

The atmosphere was vibrant and fun but the food was very ordinary. Being vegetarian there were plenty of choices which is great but the taste was very ordinary. I don't think I will be returning here again.

I understand they're trying to be trendy, but the music is so loud that you can't hold a conversation. Food was OK, but nothing special. I thought $90 for a sushi boat for two was a little pricey, especially when there wasn't all that much...More

We love this place and it is always our "go to" for their wonderful steak and lobster dish. It has a great vibe and wonderful patio (although the addition of the high top tables on patio makes it a bit crowded on the patio now)....More

Shakou is part of a small local chain. The Barrington location is attractively designed with a lounge like environment. We went at lunch and the restaurant was busy but not full. There was music in the background and the environment is on the noisier side...More
