Using a 30% discount voucher for Sho Shaun

Hi. I have a reservation at Sho Shaun in a few weeks (and just got one for EMP due reasonable evening dinning hours - yay). Anyway, I have seen that Sho Shaun has a 30% discount available. Is this because there are issues with Sho - or just because it wants to attract more dinners? Also - has anyone used these vouchers there, and if so do the treat you any different / worse than normal dinners. Thks in advance.

  1. I used one on a Saturday night within the last 5 months or so.

    The restaurant was at maybe 40% capacity and the bar completely empty.

    I did not feel like I was being treated any different / worse than normal diners.

    1. The food is wonderful,as is the space. I'm sure they aren't completely full solely because of the location. I have used the 30% coupon. Just tell them when you arrive and they will do the rest-they're really nice. Ask them to seat you in the kitchen room-very chic- and the tables are set well apart.

        One of the big selling points of the 30% discount is that you do not have to tell the staff either when you arrive or when you order about any special deals. Since I made the reservation using the 3rd party the 30% discount just appears on the bill.

          I don't know which discount you're using, but with Savored they request you tell the hostess on arrival,otherwise you could have a problem

          1. re: pammi

            I use Savored all the time at many different restaurants, and I never tell the hostess (it's indicated on their computer screen, so they should notice). Sometimes the server is unaware or forgets, and I have to tell them to redo the check, but I have never encountered any problem. As others have said, I've used Savored at SHO and was treated as well as when I did not. I also tip more when I have the discount, which makes it better for the staff.

              Definitely! They always treat you beautifully there. That's why we go there and have celebrated so many wonderful events there. the food is a wow. right on about the tipping too.

              Like rrems I use Savored and never have to say anything to hostess or waitstaff.

        2. Due to their location, I think they do more of lunchtime business. I had a prix fixe meal there, was treated well and the food is top notch. Enjoy.

            So after your feedback I tried to buy a Savored voucher today - but can't because the site only takes US credit cards. Now I def want to dine and Sho buttttt it kills me to think that I could have paid 30% less.

              The certificate is only $10 -maybe you can use an Americans friends card?q

              agreed, SHO is often full for lunch - but empty for dinner. ah, such is life in the Financial district.
