- The freshest sushi in town! ServicPotsandPensVIPDined on 10/3/2008The freshest sushi in town! Service could be a little better/fasterSpecial Features:
- Not anything to write homeOptblerVIPDined on 9/20/2008Not anything to write home about. There are much better places in SF.
- good niche with the live uniOpenTable Diner Since 2003VIPDined on 8/29/2008good niche with the live uni and live scallop; other than that, the raw seafood is not fresh; service is an unorganized nightmare - everyone from the host to the 4 different waitresses you'll get that don't talk to eachother; cute 'no frills' place, which is a good thing, but i'll never go back b/c of the risky seafood.
- I really like Live Sushi.SteveFromSeattleDined on 7/30/2008I really like Live Sushi. The food is excellent, the service polite and competent, and you can actually find on-street parking in the neighborhood! This is a place that is going on my list of regular stops.Special Features:
- The service was half decent,OpenTable Diner Since 2001Dined on 7/17/2008The service was half decent, but the food was not fresh. All 4 of us ended up getting sick. I will not return to this restaurant again.

- The staff are friendly andOpenTable Diner Since 2004Dined on 6/27/2008The staff are friendly and helpful. What we enjoy most is the sushi bar and their extensive Sake list.Special Features:

- We sat at the bar. In theOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 6/7/2008We sat at the bar. In the past, it's always been great. Jackson is fun, and he recommended some fresh items that were fantastic. But this time we ordered from a server who wasn't nearly as knowledgeable and took a while getting us our check. IMO, if you sit at the bar, you should order directly from the chefs.
- A very good Sushi Bar. TheRocioVIPDined on 5/30/2008A very good Sushi Bar. The service was excellent. It is rare to find a sushi bar well stocked with a wide variety of Saki. The Saki flight offered was well priced and provided a good experience. The sushi and presentation was very good. I will definitely be coming back.Special Features:
- The fish and seafood are notOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 4/11/2008The fish and seafood are not top quality, and I definitely won't eat them raw. Only order cooked / fried food smothered in mayo or teriyaki sauce. Not a place that Japanese go to for real sushi.
- Live sushi is a place I wouldOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 4/5/2008Live sushi is a place I would return to. It has very good food for a very fair price. Good sushi often costs a fortune, but Live Sushi is a great place to get your fill without feeling guilty about how much you spent.
- Best kept secret about findingOpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 4/4/2008Best kept secret about finding good quality sushi at a nice price. Street parking was easy to find on a Friday night. There were several open tables when we arrived at 8pm but there was a waiting line when we left.Special Features:
- This is place is great! AllOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 3/31/2008This is place is great! All the sushi was fresh. The sushi and sake recommendation from the host was outstanding. The restaurant had modern decor that made you feel relax. If you are a sushi lover go try that place. It is moderately priced, but you will be satisfied. I recommend the Bergschneider Roll, Potato Bug Roll, and Dragon Roll (those are actually the only one that we tried, but I am sure everything is great.) If you are there for the lunch special (500-630) I recommend the sake sampler. I am really happy with the experience. This is be one of the only sushi place I will go to from now on.Special Features:
- The food was good but nothingOpenTable Diner Since 2001VIPDined on 3/25/2008The food was good but nothing really popped. The flavors were a bit bland and all seemed similar. The ambiance and service were great and I plan to come back to try the saki flights.Special Features:
