We decided to try Shiro-Pittsfield, Parking is very tough to find at this location because it is in the heart of Downtown Pittsfield, and as the weather was very frigid, we didn't want to park to far away especially with little kids. So parking can tend to be an issue especially since they are across the street from the Cinema and other business venues. When we arrived to the hostess area Waitress asked how many people and pointed to be seated at the corner table which didn't make it feel to welcomed at first, As we were trying to get situated at the table with our two little kids, we had to ask the waitress from across the room if they had a booster or high chair our youngest one, waitress like "No we no have" so its was not very kid friendly since we would have to hold onto our youngest one (which is 13 months old) while trying to eat at the same time. The food was delicious but just a bit on the higher price end then I expected, considering that this Shiro location does not offer Hibachi service, Lounge area is nicely decorated, but if you are a person that tends to be claustrophobic as I can be at times, then this environment would not be suitable but luckily my wife and I and our two little kids were the only ones dining there for the most part of our dining experience. I would recommend this restaurant for couples or business people, not families.

This is an ideal location to dine before or after attending the Beacon Theatre. The food is always fresh,, the staff friendly, and prices competitive. The sushi options have always been perfect.

Had great expectations for ambiance and food. Neither one were up to par and neither was the service. Took forever to get served and the staff all seemed to be disoriented (no pun intended) and confused. The place seemed crowded but there weren't that many customers seated. We won't be going back anytime soon.

Wanted to write a reiview for this relatively new addition to downtown Pittsfield where my husband and I had dinner in October. This was an especially good experience since we both got ill following a dinner of tempura at their branch in Great Barrington, But that was another time in another location and enough about that. This time we had a very nice dinner in a very quiet restaurant following an afternoon movie which was at the theater right across the street. Very convenient.! My husband had steamed vegetables and substituted shrimp for tofu which increased the cost. I had one of several special dishes that they offer which was quite tasty.

What a pleasant evening my husband and I shared at Shiro on our 20th anniversary! We both ordered the Hibachi Shrimp & Sirloin - delicious and the food was plentiful! The dinner came with both soup (we ordered a clear fish broth with mushrooms and scallions which was served hot and was just right on a cold drizzly night) as well as salad served in an ecclectic bowl with fabulous ginger dressing...The entree included fried rice or sauteed noodles - the sirloin was melt in your mouth tender with a very tasty brown sauce; the shrimps were generous and large, and the plate even included more shrimp served over a fresh bed of chinese vegetables! Everything tasted so fresh and delightful - the dishes the meals were served on were modern and crisp as was the decor...Service was attentive and overall we had a fabulous evening! Definitely recommend it and we plan to come back with our sons who would absolutely love the shrimp and the sauteed noodles...plus being a Pittsfield native who returned to the city after living elsewhere, it is delightful to support the local businesses on North Street!
