The best sushi in San Francisco! We drive in from the East Bay. The tasting menu with Waygu beef is just amazing. Service is engaged and not stuffy. Highly recommend.

Sake pairing was excellent with the Yamato omakase. Smoked amber jack is my favorite fish. Trout roe was also delicious. Yuzu zest added to some dishes was a refreshing flavor. Best miso soup I've ever had. Glad I sat at the sushi bar. I loved watching chefs sear fish and beef, grate fresh wasabi, slice fish, etc. My main issue is the price of the meals. Not enough outstanding dishes to justify the high price. Some items I did not like and would not want to eat them again, such as giant clam, too salty soy sauce, pollock fish.

The food was very good, but I didn’t feel the service matched the price or the Michelin Star. We arrived 2 mins after the hour, and it took a while to get our first bite, then we felt rushed during the rest of the meal. The chef seemed to be distracted by the couple next to us, and forgot to announce what a few pieces of nigiri were. Finally, I was a little off-put that they charged $4 for green tea when we were spending over $200 for the meal. Overall tasty sushi, but I’ve had better omakase experiences at other restaurants.

A very personalized and genuine service by Master Chef Jackson Yu. He served Nigiri he would himself enjoy to eat. His precise 8 mg of sushi rice was an enjoyable interaction with fellow diners.

Once again, the Michelin Star restaurants disappoint. Apparently, weird has replaced good for the mark of a decent high end dining establishment. After a 1500 dinner for four, all I can say is "meh." And frankly, that's being nice. Most of the dishes were not terrible good. There were one or two exceptions, but nothing terribly noteworthy.

The house-made wasabi was quite good. So they have that going for them.

If this was a regular, non-Michelin Star rated restaurant, and cost less far less than it currently costs, I would say it was good. However, due to price and rating, I was underwhelmed.

Unreal experience. Everything was amazing except for the woman over in the corner that wouldn't shut up talking to the owner. The food was delicious and the chef's were great. Next time I am in San Fran I will be returning. This restaurant makes all the homeless and needles laying around everywhere worth the trip. Best sushi in USA hands down.

My fiancé and I went to their for his birthday. It was an amazing meal!!! It was not a big place, every chef served 3 or 4 guests. We had a great chat with our chef. He answered everything we asked and told us stories about their food and the materials. The fish was very fresh and delicious. This place is a perfect one for occasions!

Not remarkable to support the price point. Most courses of the tasting menu were fresh sashimi or nigiri. We felt silly afterward for spending $750 on a meal with sake for two.

May be worthwhile for someone else

The service was fantastic. The food was equally good. My fiancé and I had many discussions as to our favorite rounds; and it got harder as the meal went on as there were so many options. The staff was a little mortified as a party of 4 ladies were getting a little rowdy at the end of the bar but everyone in the restaurant seemed to appreciate the lively mood amplifying the good time.
