The quality of our sushi is attributed to a one-of-a-kind combination of fresh ingredients, coupled with
26 years of experience and unique preparation techniques. "Akiko" means “autumn child; iris, bright
and light” in Japanese. When entering our space guests will see rustic-earth tones, imported rosewood
floors, exposed brick walls, and varied place settings on unique oak tables. The atmosphere ensures
that our customers get a unique dining experience. Our charming, boutique restaurant is conveniently
located in the Financial District in downtown San Francisco. We provide the Japanese staple in the area,
serving modern, yet traditional Japanese fare.

Best sushi around. Hard place to find as there is no sign on the door but once you find it you won’t forget where it’s at. For sure will come back every time I am in San Francisco.

Overall solid, but the kitchen and sushi chef forgot about items that we had ordered. In addition, enough with the glass lid smoker - I understand that it might be a fun party trick for novices, but it seemed that every other order was being placed under a small glass lid and then infused with smoke. Surely the quality of the ingredients should speak for themselves and not have to be masked with a haze of gas.

Our server was incredibly rude. She also forgot to put in our side order of rice and then when we asked about it, she said the restaurant was "out" of rice. A sushi restaurant out of rice!!! And she didn't offer any accommodation or anything in return. The sushi itself was "okay"- but way overpriced, definitely not worth it. We will definitely NOT be going back to Akiko's.

Every year when I come to SFO, Akiko‘s is a MUST. For those who say „I only eat sushi in Japan!“: this is a lesson for you guys that you are missing something! Creative but original sushi dining, top fish quality, excellent seasoning (to make sure you enjoy the right flavor the waiter removed our soy sauce pot —— and he was right!!!) perfect service, perfect ambiance. It’s a rather small place so book your lunch early!

Best sushi I’ve had outside of Japan, and on par with excellent authentic sushi in Japan.

Terribly slow service. We complained but that didn't change the situation. We left after the first course (and 45 minutes later) to another restaurant that had better service.

I had high expectations dining here, the food was good and fresh but nothing was really special that impressed me. Dishes came with small portion but delicate. Maybe I’ll try to go Omakase experience next time here.
