Akiko's Restaurant & Sushi Bar
The food and service were outstanding!!! This place is a gem!
Little hidden gem! Fantastic omakase with loads of buttery, zesty delights to your palate.
Can tailor to your low/ no carb diet easily. And prompt service.
It can get pricey 😊, yes. Absolutely delightful!
Easily one of the best sushi you can get in SF!
Best sushi ever; we tríed allí ítems in Nama selection menú : excelent !!!
Special place. Always new and unique sushi menu items and the sushi is always the freshest. Sushi chefs are always so knowledgeable. Sitting at the bar is highly recommended.
Wonderful experience - the sushi is so fresh and masterfully prepared. Ask your server for recommendations and follow their lead. Small space but big tastes. Truly the best sushi I’ve eaten anywhere in the world.
I had the $150 Omakase which consisted of very little sushi/sashimi and most dishes were either cooked or seared. I was very disappointed in the quality of the fish, especially given the very high price of the meal. The uni aa nothing special and a fried Parmesan nigiri was very unappealing. Also I was totally disgusted watching the sushi chefs throw order tickets on top of pieces of nigiri before they left the sushi bar. I don’t know where that paper has been, and certainly don’t want it on top of my $26 nigiri.
Exceptional food, service and ambiance! My fave sushi place in the city!
Stunning sushi, immaculate presentation, faultless service. This is the best of the best.
1st time we dined here was about 18 months ago and the entire experience - ambiance, food, service and comfort were off the charts wonderful. We spent about $500 for the experience. Our waiter was very inquisitive about our expectations - at first this was not appreciated but it really worked out. He ordered for us and the food was spectacular. Easily my best sushi/Japanese experience in SF. Unfortunately we went for a return recently for my wife's birthday and other than the same $500 expense the experience was meh. There were some hits - the mature yellowtail and dungenous crab whip with shaved white truffles. But there some real duds (baby eels with ponzu - yuck) and the rest mostly meh.
The real downer was the ambiance. We sat in the back and could smell the bathroom cleaners/oDorizers. Yuck. And our waitress was nothing like the guy we had previously - curt and not at all helpful.
We will likely try one more time but with a keep it simple(r).
Quite pricey for what it offers. The chef has a tendency to season most of the nigiri sushi thus unable to taste the original fresh taste of the fish, don't like that.
Awesome Omokase experience!
Our dinner at Akiko's was the best dining experience during our recent trip to San Francisco. I am not even sushi lover. I booked it based off strong recommendations for my husband, but I loved the dinner myself. Linda, our server, felt like a great friend guiding up through the meal and she didn't steer us wrong at any turn. I love the intimate nature of the restaurant with only a handful of table and the bar. Plus, there is enough on the menu for non-sushi goers. The Black Cod was to-die for. I will be certain to go back on our next adventure in San Francisco.
Always the best omakase
My favorite place
I had a wonderful experience at Akiko’s. The service was great, and the food and preparation couldn’t have been better. We were seated at a nice table by the window. The fish that was served was very fresh and delicious, delivered from Japan. It was a great spot for a date. Would absolutely go again.
Outstanding food and service as always; recommend sushi bar!
Amazing food every time
Akikos was excellent. The specials and expert wait staff made our evening wonderful.
It was such a phenomenal tasting experience. You can have a business meeting, a date or a get together of friends for a spectacular meal!
Service was superb. You will not be disappointed!
Excellent food and service
The food was phenomenal and the staff exceptional. This was a great culinary experience and I would be thrilled to dine here again. Definitely an experience!
We enjoyed the food and service! Excellent sashimi and tasting menu options!
Excellent nigiri and very friendly/helpful service. We would definitely go back!
Ordered omakase and requested to sit at the bar. They brought all our sushi out on one plate rather than piece by piece like most restaurants. They chef didn’t pay any attention to us the entire time and instead served only the couple next to us.
This is the second time I’ve been here and this was a uniquely bad experience.
My favorite place for fresh sushi and rolls where the ingredients and service are always first rate.
Never disappoints. It’s always such a different experience from other omakase
By far some of the best sushi I've had in 5+ years in SF.
Our server was knowledgeable and offered guidance with our choices. The food exceeded our expectations.
When we found out there was a special sushi roll (chef's choice) we ordered it as well as a small bite that was also not on the menu and everything was exceptional. Pricy but what you'd expect with the quality and innovation.
Tip top as usual. Fantastic menu with many uncommon offerings of the highest quality- barracuda, gizzard chad, Russian uni, trigger fish- with superb presentation and excellent service. Prepare to pay for it, but you’ll have a fantastic meal and experience.
excellent sushi but way to pricey...expect $250+ per couple
Food was incredible. Expensive, but incredible. Our waitress was warm and helped us with the menu. Great experience
Incredible food and service. Do expect to pay for ot though.
My partner and I really enjoyed the food tonight. The quality of the fish is always exceptional here. And our server was great. However, we were very disappointed when we saw the receipt because one of the dishes was charged $1 more per piece of nigiri. We had four of this piece. Akiko is my favorite restaurant of all time in SF. Whenever I'm in town, I've been religiously visiting Akiko alone or with friends. All of my friends have become huge Akiko's fans. I can't believe this type of error was going on and I was the only one to catch it. I have a pretty good memory and if I hadn't closely read the receipt, we would have been charged extra. This isn't about the expensiveness of the dish but about the principle of trust and paying attention to detail, which is fundamental to why I chose to eat at Akiko's. Unfortunately, neither one was there tonight and I am disappointed and feel defeated.
The omakase set didn’t worth the price. Nigiri was great.
Love it all
Wonderful, every bite is a piece of heaven! Really excellent chefs, top notch fish, and very friendly staff. Fantastic place. Our favourite in SF.
Very good but not great enough to justify the price!
Very overpriced sushi. Monkfish was good but besides that not worth the price
