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!

Beautiful and delicious meal! The Omakase menu was perfect for a friend’s birthday meal. Not too much to food as we had worried it might have been when we ordered. It was just perfection in every bite even to the very last bite for dessert.

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!

Akiko's on Bush St. is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. The sushi is top quality and includes varieties I've not found in other Sushi Bars around the country. It is definitely High-end.

Service is great: attentive without interrupting; always helpful & courteous. The owner, or the person I believe to be the owner, usually visits the tables and makes sure the guests are well cared for. He patiently answers questions about the menu and gives recommendations when asked.

Hint: bring your wallet. The unique fare and amazing plating does come with a cost. But definitely worth it for the taste and experience.

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.

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.

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.

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.
