What they’re saying….

“The owner/chef is more than creative, the combination of foods very impressive. We absolutely loved every bite: the rolls were fantastic, the scallops divine and the Kung Pow Wow were all very unique. Thank you to the staff for making our first experience at Shiso incredible!”

Lisa S., Petaluma

“Great sushi and creative Asian dishes like sesame scallops on seaweed salad, wasabi deviled eggs, and inventive sushi rolls like macadamia nut encrusted spicy tuna roll called Mac Daddy! Beautiful wooden sushi bar makes it easy to dine solo. Cozy atmosphere with good lighting and candles.”

JJ Wood

“Shiso satisfies the soul….
As dinner progressed, it soon became obvious that Metcalfe was turning interesting culinary ideas into smart, sophisticated, and intriguing dishes, but without straying too far from the expectations most of us have for good Asian food.”

Jeff Cox, The Press Democrat

“You are definitely in for a treat at Shiso with it’s friendly staff, casual elegant setting, and of course Chef Ed’s delectable creations with the freshest sushi and garden fresh herbs and vegetables. The sashimi alone is the kind that just melts in your mouth and the presentation itself is a work of art. The ingredients are really what makes you want more. I could just eat the wasabi alone, it is freshly ground, and not from some paste so the course texture adds a richness to the sushi.”
