    I had the Lion King for the first time and LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it. Also had a bite of my husband's teriyaki plate and it was sooo flavorful. Kudos to the chefs! The restaurant was unfortunately quite empty but that guaranteed us a bay window which was a real treat! The waiters were very nice, they took pictures of us, the Maitre'd was perfect.

    We went to Hana zen thinking that they offer both sushi and yakitori just as their downtown location does. Unfortunately, when we went there, we found out, that they don't offer yakitor due to their grill not meeting the pier's regulation or rules. Sushi was good but I was little disappointed that they don't offer yakitori. Also when we wen there, there were only another couple eating at the restaurant. Since they have a big space, it made it look even more empty than it was.

    Dined here for Valentine's Day with my boyfriend. The space is beautiful with bay views and modern design. The servers were very attentive and friendly. The sushi was good, but definitely not the best I've ever had. They brought a rose with the check for Valentine's Day which was a very sweet gesture :)

    We enjoyed the Hana Zen combination special including Tempura and Teriyaki Chicken. The portions were plentiful and the chicken was moist and had a crispy skin top. The salad and soup were also good size. The California Roll was fresh and tasty. The view of the Golden Gate Bridge was great.

    The sushi was very good. Very good interior and wonderful view. But overall it was too pricey. The special rolls are quite small portion. The dinner special with 2 items, rice, salad and miso soup was almost double the price compare to other fine Japanese restaurant. There were only one waitress and one bus boy running through the whole restaurant. The waitress was really running, no kidding. She worked very hard but we still waited for our service all the time. This was not the service we paid for.

    Gorgeous view of Alcatraz and the Bay. High quality fish. Exquisite presentation. Delicious spicy scallop and hamachi roll. Lamb chops are also note-worthy.

    A great addition to Hana Zen's Union Square location. The fish is very fresh. The appetizers are delicate. And the portions are very generous. The view is of the Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Angel Island. The grill, however, is not working yet, but I am sure the yakitori will be as goo as their Union Square location.

    With so many great places to choose to eat in SF, it was a nice surprise to trek down to Pier 39 and find a noteworthy sushi place with an incredible view. I typically would not go down to the pier for food, but it was recommended by friends and living in Russian Hill...it was a quick jaunt. Service was pleasant and attentive without being overbearing. Sushi was wonderful with exceptional presentation. Definitely would love to go back once they have their liquor license in place. This was just one of the disappointments, but understand it being one of the quirks of doing business here in SF...red tape.

    This place is clearly geared towards tourists who have never had sushi. Most rolls have cooked or tempura fish. It is a terrific location, but I wouldn't go back.
