Excellent food, service and environment. Highly recommended
Always a joy to eat here. Fresh ingredients expertly prepared and served.
Amazing food! Just let the chef choose for you! Service was friendly and effective. Had a great time.
Over the Top best Sushi experience ever. Recommend the Chef’s Choice, it was Amazing.
Akiko’s is an amazing restaurant if you’re looking for omakase style dining. While the prices are pretty high, the quality of the fish is incomparable. Skip everything and focus on the nigiri - the selection and craftsmanship is to die for!
Also - the sake collection is top notch.
Great sushi. But don’t expect the great service from servers.
I wish I knew the name of our sushi chef as he was extremely pleasant. This place is great for the price! We had the nigiri omakase and the fish tasted fresh with every single bite. Will definitely be coming back!
The place is small and cozy but the food is loud with how well the sushi tastes and is put together. I'd skip the traditional appetizers of miso soup or edamame and go for one of their fresh salads and assortment of sushi specials.
La comida estuvo deliciosa y fresca!! Nuestro mesero fue súper amigable y nos enseño trucos para comer sushi, todo increíble!
Everything was awesome. Impressive quality and service. Expensive, though; but worth it.
Amazing. Phenomenal. Sammy was the best.
The waitress could be more attentive for a restaurant at this level... little more omotenashi would be nice
We got the chef’s choice omakase and we absolutely enjoyed the experience of trying each piece of sushi. Without a doubt, each piece of sushi served was high quality. The customer service was excellent as well. A glass of water was never empty during the meal, and each time a plate came to the table, they would explain what each sushi was. Overall great experience.
Amazing High Quality Fish and Meat. A bit pricey, but worth the experience.
We read the excellent reviews on this quaint restaurant and had to check it out. We were not disappointed. The black cod was fantastic! Melt in your mouth, nice texture with the broiled flakes, squid dressing and ikura. My nigiri moriawase was the highlight..had to take a photo with the perfect accompaniment of Orion. Enjoyed lunch so much went back the next day. This place is worth the price. Service was excellent!
Great Omakase experience here.
Need an air solution ...too hot inside. No comfortable
Waitresses are too busy
Fun and delicious girls night out! The fish was fresh and prepared to perfection! If your considering sushi for date night or just for fun you should eat here!
I would say that Akiko's sushi was very fresh and we enjoyed the food very much. The service was good. Not superb. I'm Japanese and I'm very picky about where I eat my Sushi. It's a very small restaurant so do make reservations in advance. I would definitely recommend this Sushi joint if you are in San Francisco Bay Area.
Good food, bad service from waiter on a bad mood
Screw all the overpriced “high end” sushi restaurants. They are trying to be like “Jiro dreams of sushi” and they are so off. I’m
Japanese from Japan. Americans are so fooled by ambiance. The food you guys!!! Are you full after leaving? Satisfied.
We left Akiko’s and went straight to another Japanese spot to actually get nourishment. Save your money. Don’t go
Food and sake always on point.
This is the only place to eat fresh sushi in SF. It's our "go to" place. Allen is very personable, friendly, and professional. We will be back there soon.
Awesome sushi. Omakase was amazing.
Unbelievable. Probably the best sushi I have ever had...including in Japan.
Colleague recommended and we are sure glad he did. We are in town from Chicago and wanted a nice sushi restaurant. Your restaurant was perfect, food portions just right and service outstanding from the time we walked in until we left. Open Table made it easy for visitors to research, select and travel to our destination. I have already recommended to others. Thank you.
Elegant, restful space with delicious, clean, fresh fish.
Possibly the best sushi I've ever had. Took Wife here for an anniversary dinner and it didn't disappoint.
Had the omakase, and was treated to one of the best meals of my life. Not sure if I can go back to eating sushi at other places after this. The servers were very attentive and the meal was great. Would recommend everyone to experience their omakase.
Akiko's is a hidden gem. Once you are seated the superb quality of the sushi shines. Your pallette gets to take an adventure as the sushi chefs create new rolls and outstanding traditional favorites.
Had a reservation for 7:30pm, was not seated until 8:10pm. Waited for 10-15 minutes before our order was taken. Food was great and our server had great recommendations so that was the highlight of the evening. We also ordered sake and it was never brought to us so we decided to not have it. It could have been that one off day.
The food was great. The staff could be slightly more friendly, but it really didn't bother me. The sushi chief was great. It was on the pricier side but I feel like the price was borderline "good"/"high" for the taste and quality.
Need some help at the host stand, perhaps new practice or communication style with customers.
9pm reservation was met with, “we have a 15 min cancellation policy, let me see if we still have a table for you.” We arrive 9:16pm. Not kidding. Made a joke about that and she repeated the policy and line about maybe having a table for us. Ok. How about glad you guys made it, we’d thought you canceled? Nothing.
So we are late and this person’s approach and whole demeanor was completely negative...we were fine cause we just walked over from having seen a comedy show at the Masonic.
Policy is fine, and as mentioned above, we were late. But I had called you back specifically that afternoon and confirmed our reservation. Your food is great and I have no problem paying $400+ for two people...you do sushi extremely well. Just lose the attitude at the door. You should be happy people are showing up at your place and not another’s. Your food is too good to ruin it on something that takes no talent to produce...attitude, gratefulness.
Just some friendly advice.
There isn't a rating high enough to grade this place. Absolute gem in SF!!! Thank you so much for having us!!
Akiko's is consistently the best place to meet for a quiet meal with a close friend. The food is remarkable and subtly creative, and almost every meal surprises me in some cool way. The front of the restaurant is a totally different vibe from the rear dining room, with San Francisco in front and Tokyo in back.
It's a privilege to have dinner at Akiko's. Thanks.
