An outstanding experience! Sat at the sushi counter and ordered the tasting menu. Extravagant, beautiful and delicious! The staff are all charming - from the front door to behind the counter.

Such a fun dining experience ... and one of our first indoors post-COVID.
A treat all the way around.

My fiancé (now wife!) and I went here during our honeymoon and had the omakase and oh my god (eh)! It was a truly fantastic meal and the sushi chefs and wait staff were very friendly and made the whole thing a very fun experience. The omakase is not cheap, I will warn you, but the quality and overall experience was worth it we felt like. We would both place it among the best meals we have every had in our lives. So, if you are a fan of sushi and want to do something really special, splurge on the omakase here and you will have a memory and story to tell for quite some time!

Fantastic meal with amazing service. Sushi and food was top notch and high quality with service to back it up.
Went for my father's 65th birthday and had my pregnant wife with me. Obviously there was not a lot she could eat, but the server made an extra effort to recommend and helped course the meal out for her as the rest of the party did the omakase. Definitely will come back for other special and even just a casual occasion.

This place is high end sushi and expensive, i go there once a week after work and i end up paying between $350 and $450 per person with tax and tip. if i return it is because of the fish quality and the staff skills. It is a true journey about sensation, i am not even sure it is about food... so if you want to eat, go somewhere else, if you want to be taken into a olfactory journey, a craft and art experience, than, this might be one of your spot.
if you enjoy refined sake, you may also find some that would match your taste, ask the sommelier, the staff is very competent and that is not the usual in San Francisco.
If you sit at the bar and are lucky to have a clever chef, you may even have a very nice culinary teaching at the same time!

The restaurant is clean, chic and understated. The Omakase menu was a curated selection from the sea. Pairings were thoughtful, unique and perfectly prepared. The presentation of each dish was beautiful and reverent. Some of the best flavor combinations I have ever had. Chris is a sake sommelier as I had never experienced with a friendly affability that elevated a restaurant dinner to a meal with friends.

a fine high end sushi place in downtown SF, one of my favorite in the city.
service impeccable, friendly and classy staff, nice set up.
the omakaze was really amazing, starting with several delicate dishes, non sushi then several one piece nigiri with usual fishes but artfully crafted.
with a couple glass of sake and tip i ended up paying about $400 so this is a pricey place.

The food was outstanding. Period. We chose the tasting menu and it noticeably did not have a price mentioned. My fault for not inquiring. I'll just say that is was a bit more expensive that I could have possibly imagined...

We had the Omakase tasting menu and it was fabulous. Amazing presentation and just the right amount of food to feel satisfied. Ambiance was great, restaurant was quiet, you really got to appreciate your surroundings. Great sake recommendation by the waiter. All and all I would recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends.

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner this past week at Akikos. I had been to Akikos a year ago but we ordered off the menu at that time.

I wasn’t prepared for the Omakase meal as an only option (nor the high price) but it was the most delicious and memorable meal I’ve had in a very long time.

I’m a fussy sushi fan so many things (too fishy) are out for me. Every single presentation was beyond superb and delicious and plated on varied artistic china and stoneware.

This is a very special restaurant with an unbelievable chef and most accommodating staff that make your feel welcome and like royalty. One hundred percent worth the value! Bravo!
