Otoro is, perhaps, the best sushi restaurant I've ever eaten at. Everything is fresh, creative and delicious.
I got the best seat in the house! The food and beverage selections were so serving to my palette. The chefs were fabulous. The host was so nice and seemed to know everyone there! Those who served were so kind as well and took care of everyone. The whole vibe was set last night. Thanks!
The food is fresh, innovative and traditional. The owner, Jimmy, and the entire staff are charming and respectful. They are cautious about COVID protocols. They have inside and outside dinning and , for outside, adequate heat lamps. I've been going to Otoro since before the pandemic, and am happy that it has returned and is thriving. Reservations are recommended.
excellent fish, well cut and their balance of rice is perfect.
Dining at Otoro Sushi is always a satisfying experience with friends because they find something special on the menu to suit them. Sharing dishes only enhances the time together.
Delicious Food, Friendly Staff. From the Miso Soup to the Garlic Soft Shell Crab, each item we ordered was better than other sushi restaurants
We return to Otoro again and again. We love the service here (Jimmy, the owner, is the absolute BEST) and the food is just great. We have often sat at the bar and asked the chefs for an omikase platter - and we were never disappointed. :-) Now that we have a child - we bring her here because it is her favorite sushi restaurant.
Perfect for low-key but absolutely delicious New Years!
Excellent food, drinks, and service! Tried 6 different things on the menu and we loved it all. Go hungry, you won't be disappointed! ❤️ A+
Great food and beautiful presentation! Service was very good. We would definitely go back!
Great food, very good service and overall wonderful dining experience.
Delightful! Delicious! Amazing service! We will be back!!
Otitis is nothing but consistent whether it’s the chefs special or hot dishes. We are regulars.
Food was excellent. Staff was extremely attentive and had great food recommendations.
Wide ranging menu with very good appetizers. Very tasty. I usually have a variety of small dishes, and a small amount of actual sushi at the end of the meal. The food is pretty much identical to prior to the pandemic, which was very good. Recommended.
We always receive a warm welcome and the staff is professional and attentive. The food is excellent and the menu has been expanded so there are many hot and cold choices. Eating in the outdoor space, in winter, was comfortable with the heaters. We always come here for a meal before our SF Symphony concert.
Don’t let the worn interior fool you, Otoro still has some of the best sushi and Japanese dishes in SF. Those in the know continue to go to Otoro for their super fresh fish and awesome food.
What a great neighborhood sushi place. We look forward to many visits.
Good food good service on a busy san francisco night. Unusual and delicious fish dishes
As always, an excellent meal with super service!
We chose to sit outside. It was a Friday night and there were a lot of cars on Oak. We could still have conversation easily. They lit a warming heater right next to us.
The quality of the sushi is always first rate and so what's a little noise!
Decent place. Flavorful rolls, nice quality sushi.
Fantastic sushi. We did the Omakase and it was delicious. We sat outside. it was very nice.
Inside corner table, felt pretty private. Food was better than expected. Fried foods a bi oily, but delicious. Sushi: mostly very fresh. Mackerel a bit fishy, but o-toro sumptuous. Uni fresh. Would return anytime. 3 blocks for Davies.
The fish at Otoro is very fresh AND they have creative rolls. Everything is super yummy
I have now eaten at Otoro 3 times and have been very impressed and happy each time! It is nice to be greeted like an old friend when you visit a soon to be favorite restaurant. I am betting that the gentleman who handles seating etc is the owner...but either way, I appreciate his friendly style!
The food is fantastic...very fresh and tender sashimi and their rolls are just how I like them...not too much rice!
Decent food but the Thanksgiving service (considering it happened by accident) was outstanding.
Too much sauce and seasoning on nigiri that take away fresh fish flavor
Chef's sushi special was fantastic, rolls were ok, Hamachi Kama was good.
Love this place! Highly recommend. I’ve been coming here for years, I don’t live in the city anymore but I make a point to go to Otoro when I visit. Always fresh fish, great service, and a laid back atmosphere. It’s a home away from home! Thanks to Jimmy and team for always making this place great!
Loved the food. Everything was delicious. We sat outside and it was warm enough with the heaters turned on.
fabulous food and service. i have eaten her many times and it never fails.
The wagyu rolled around asparagus and the shishito peppers were my favoite items. The rolls were okay; maybe I picked the wrong items for myself, but I would come back and try the hamachi carpaccio, nigiri items, and more tapas. Outdoor seating was nice, open and spacious, more than the inside. My friends really enjoyed it so I'm glad.
Smallish place walking distance from the performing arts complex. Food is good, and service was generally good, just a little slow right at the end of our meal, but end of the day definitely a place worth visiting if you’re in the Hayes Valley area, especially if you’re heading off to the symphony, the opera, or SF jazz.
Amazing quality sushi and such a nice staff. Nice and spacious inside and nice tables outside
The sushi was unbelievable
Excellent quality! Everything was delicious! Highly recommended.
greeted at the door immediately & shown straight to a good corner / window table. every staff person came to the table at some point or another to take an order, bring food, pour water, you name it. great service. very good food.
