Barracuda has a great selection
Barracuda has a great selection of all the rolls, sashimi, etc. that anyone would want from a sushi place plus a whole lot of specialty rolls and fun sake cocktails. The atmosphere is lively and fun with a really great music selection. It makes for a fun overall experience to complement the great food.

We had some friends in town
We had some friends in town and we wanted to find a place where we could get a last minute reservation in the Castro. The first time we went to Barracuda, we had some service issues, but decided to give it another try. The sushi is great! The decor is kitchy and leaves a little to be desired. However, as long as the sushi is good, I am happy.

The chef's dinner was wonderful!
The chef's dinner was wonderful! I have found new favorites! The sashimi was very fresh. I love the butter fish and albacore. The special roll was wonderful too. I love this restaurant and always enjoy dinner here.

Try the Tasting Menu
Had a Group On coupon to use and had dinner at Barracuda. It had been several months since my last visit. The Friday night crowd was buzzing and the bar scene (albeit a small bar area) was jumping. The Tasing Menu for 2 filled-up both of us with a very good variety of pre-fixe offerings from appetizer to dessert. We opted for the Sushimi entree (there was another choice that was cooked - tempura, I think) and the fish could not have been fresher or more flavorful. The very large "roll of the day" was great, too. Highly recommend Barracuda - especially if you have a coupon to use. You won't be disappointed.

We tried the tasting menu, the menu was not very descriptive and we thought the portions are going to be small. We ordered a couple more items from happy hour menu and realized we had ordered too much food. The tasting menu portions are more than enough for 2 people, the sushi and sashimi are very fresh and tasty. So is the mochi ice-cream with whipped cream. To top it off, the server had a very cheerful and positive attitude, she is very attentive and courteous. The decor of the restaurant is cool and hip. we certainly enjoy the ambience, service and food and will be back again and highly recommend this place.

The service and the food was vrey good. Great unlimited mimosas. My only complaint was their prices did not match the prices on their webpage.

Was very pleased!
The fish was fresh, the menu (tasting menu) was varied and creative and the portions were just right in size. I would recommend it as a good place to enjoy Japanese food and sushi.

Great value for super fresh fish. We had the chef's choice tasting menu which came with miso soup, several appetizers,sashimi and a specialty roll followed by a mochi ice cream dessert. Lots of food, excellent service.

Treated us well
Went to celebrate a birthday. They treated us great, especially given how crowded it was!

Very good sushi spot
Teryaki sliders + Japanese cowboy are the way the way to go!

Great food, great ambience.
We have been there many times and we love it.
The tasting menu is great.

after reading many reviews for all the sushi restaurants in San Francisco, I found Barracuda the most interesting and made a reservation. The place was perfect for us with our adult children and their boys, who are 2 and 5. They have grown up on sushi and we all love it. We have our favorite in the Philly area near our home but this is #1 on the West coast. My husband eats uni and quail eggs and yours made him happy.
Thanks for the great service and we will be back one day.

Excellent service and food!
My husband, son and I planned on spending the day in San Francisco. We found the Barracuda on OpenTable for dinner after visiting The California Academy of Science. Our server Chris was very friendly and attentive. We ordered teriyaki beef and chicken, dragon roll, California rolls, sashimi and sake for me. Everything was great. We will definitely be back again soon.

Great Japanese food in the Castro
The food was great, the ambience acceptable, but it lacked the feel of a real Japanese restaurant. More American-Japanese than actual Japanese.

Best Bloody Mary EVER
The brunch menu is really great for those who want Japanese or traditional brunch items. But what sent our group over the edge were the most delicious Bloody Marys we'd ever tasted. We got spicy and asked them why they tasted so good - yet different. Instead of Tabasco, they use wasabi and Sriracha. Amazing. We had three rounds of them. And we were a group of 10 which is well suited for Barracuda because their walls are covered with continuous benches, so they can comfortably accommodate really large parties.

Great sushi, ambiance, music, service. Everything was outstanding. I'll be there a LOT in future. Don't know why it took me so LNG to get there.

so nice food, too noisy
We love this place. The tasting menu is just fantastic.
It was too noisy last Friday, though.
Was hard to speak with my friends sharing table with me.

Excellent Food, Great Service
Conveniently located in Castro, this was a perfect spot for good Japanese sushi and friendly service by locals. Fast speedy service made the meal an excellent experience.

Great service and food!
We had the tasting menu, generous portions of unctuous sashimi were especially yummy. The service is impeccable, and the kitchen prompt. We keep coming back because of the consistency!

Last Minute Brunch Idea
It is almost impossible to dine at a well known (or any known ) brunch location in San francisco. Thanks to OT I was able to reserve a spot in a japanese restaurant that served a "japanese" style brunch. Bottomless mimosas with entree, very delicious and creative items on the menu, and attentive staff. Overall a perfect new experience for me.

"F" Train on Market to Barracuda
Excellent happy hour weekdays 5-7pm.
You can have dinner from the happy hour menu since there is plenty to choose from. Not fancy, but casual neighborhood dinning is the scene here.

Nice place for Sushi
This is a fun little, energetic sushi restaurant in the castro. Service puts out full effort and the dishes are attractive. This sushi quality is a step below some of the best in the City, but if you are hungry for solid and in the area, this is a good restaurant.

Although the menu is heavy
Although the menu is heavy on sushi, this non-fisher eater was able to find many yummy things to try. The sliders were exceptional.

Friendly wait staff Talented barman
I recommend the dragon roll. The food was great. The service was great. The host was super friendly and sweet. I arrived at 8:00 and go a great table. The place was packed at 9:30 with lots of people waiting outside for tables. The crowd was spirited and fun.

Excellent sushi restaurant to be discovered! You just must try!
