Not much in terms of ambiance, and the nigiri was mediocre for the price? Not bad, just feel like there are better places in the city.

Maruya is an authentic Japanese kaiseki food with the serene ambiance of a traditional modern Japanese restaurant. If anyone wants to experience a wonderful palate of fresh sashimi presented so beautifully in traditional dishes, you will full enjoy this restaurant. Every single time I have come to this restaurant I have never had a unsatisfactory experience. If you enjoy extraordinary Japanese food with the taste and presentation, you will not be disappointed.

The food here is outstanding. presentation is beautiful but the flavors are really phenomenal. I'm a sushi lover and have discovered layers of complexity in fish that i had previously just enjoyed. Each bite is an experience.
The service is responsive and thoughtful without being intrusive. e.g. when I dropped my chopstick he was there within 30 sec with a new pair without us asking. He made sure our tea was always ready for us at the temperature that worked for us.
I absolutely love this place and consider each meal I've had here as some of my best meals I've had.

Food and Service were outstanding and top-notch. The restaurant itself is a local neighborhood spot - perhaps too "bare bones" for the multi-course dining experience, and the prices charged. Some soft lighting and comfortable seating would be suggested upgrades.

We did the $95 omakase. The early courses really shined but the nigri was sloppily presented and the flavors muted. Overall, I felt the food was fairly average for the cost.

Maruya has arranged a Japanese garden style patio with just few tables. The food is delicious and the experience is really relaxing yet you don't feel you have to be quiet if you want to chat :)
We went there with our 1 month old baby to celebrate our 10 years anniversary. They brought the dessert with a chocolate made anniversary note on a dish plate.
The chef's omakase is copious and delicious, this is place where we like to go often when we need to celebrate.
We are so glad that we can enjoy it now with this new outdoor setup

I cannot begin to describe the incredible meal my partner and I had. The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable, the restaurant was quaint and quiet. Everything was perfect. The sake pairings complimented the food perfectly. Our server ls level of passion and engagement was perfect for the meal, deeply knowledgeable and approachable, but not overbearing. Every dish was made and presented with incredible detail and care. If you’re reading this, you must dine here. Trust me.

My partner and I found Maruya online while looking for sushi in the mission with good reviews. What a treat to discover this place! The food was outstanding, the service was perfect and we had the back patio to ourselves for two hours (which was unbelievable for a Thursday evening in the time of Covid with food this incredible). It was a delightful sensory experience and the perfect setting for some serious discussions that my partner and I needed to have. We ordered a bottle of sake to go with our meal and were offered a sake tasting, as well. Highly recommend this place.

Taking a friend out for a birthday celebration and attending a nearby show at Lost Church I picked it for the location.I did not realize it was not a la carte and offered fixed price sushi starting at $86.00.We chose a wonderful vegetarian Buddhist Monk with 8 dishes at a lower prices
.Delicious and very attractive in its presentation.They evensurprised my friend with a lovely dessert.Service was good but on the leisurely side.I want to save up and go back for one of the sushi specialties
