Diner Reviews
  • "I don't like to give bad reviews but my dining companion and I sat for over half an hour waiting for our food after we ordered while everyone who came into the restaurant after we did, were already served. There were two or three servers and even though they comped us on edamame (we didn't order, the server just brought it over to us)--no explanation for the long delay was given except one of them said the reason was that the mackerel took a long time--were they catching it??? They gave us a 10% discount on the bill but it would have been really nice if a person actually came over to explain why it was taking so long. Just plopping a bowl of edamame on the table while we had sat there for half an hour, wasn't really enough."

  • "I had driven by Live for years and always wondered about it. I moved to the neighborhood in 2011 and decided to have dinner my first night in the area. It is, to me by far, the best sushi in town. The quality is always amazing. I'm more of a purist and don't go for rolls, tray dishes, etc; though those are very good here too. I order mainly off the specials board and am happy every time! The staff is amazing and service has continued to be top notch these years since that first visit. I go at least once a month if not every 2 weeks. Its a must for sushi lovers."

  • "My boyfriend and I went there for dinner the other night - I has two vegetable sushi rolls and he had two regular rolls, yet the bill somehow came out to be $90. The sushi wasn't worth the amount of money we paid. I won't be returning."

  • "Title says it all. The fish is really fresh. The staff here are very friendly and nice. I've been here multiple times and have never had a problem."

  • "We had a reservation at 7pm. We did not get seated until 25 minutes later. We'd have been just as well-off having showed up without a reservation."

  • "We had a meal for 14 on Friday night at Live sushi. The staff were very flexible on numbers (we increased the number to 16 then reduced to 14 with very little frustration). On the night the staff were very attentive with food & booze orders and useful relating to both quantity and what to order. Food was excellent (Hamachi Kama... Killer!). This is probably not a place you would go for formal dining or celebrations but as a great nrighborhood 'go-to' I have no problems giving them 5 stars. Great job live sushi!"

  • "The grilled squid and SFPD and Bergschneider rolls are outta this world!!"

  • "The good: The hostess and the waitresses were very accommodating. They put up with our group changing around our seating and sitting there for a while. They filled our tea and water as needed without us having to look for them. There is also plenty of parking in the neighborhood which is rare in SF The bad: Just a little too much rice in their sushi rolls. Seaweed salad is a lot like Costco's... nothing special Overall: The food tasted good and I enjoyed my dining experience. I would come back."
