Nice place, good service, but mediocre ingredients, and very average food quality.

Sashimi was very basic (salmon, yellowtail, tuna - nothing like fatty tuna or any other upscale fish.

The Rock (wagyu beef) was so low on fat content that they actually had to pour olive oil on the searing rock (which resulted in a ton of smoke in the dining room). This is the first time I saw wagyu beef requiring grease in addition to it’s own fat. Costco prime beef puts this wagyu to shame.

So, a disappointing experience overall.

I went here with my partner for our anniversary dinner. It is a gem in the middle of the city! I have a few food allergies and they did a great job of taking everything into consideration. The food was absolutely delicious, the ambiance was modern/upscale and they even provided a complimentary dessert for the occasion. We had a very nice experience and will definitely be going back!

The food was good, but pricey as you'd expect of a hotel restaurant. The service was cordial but kind of hands-off-ish, and you didn't really get the impression they wanted you to linger much.

We've been to Anzu many years ago and it was a fabulous experience then with amazing food quality and atmosphere. This time they had closed of half of the restaurant and it felt like the breakfast room of the Nikko Hotel. My main dish was delicious and fresh but the rest was mediocre at best. Will not go back.

We both had the German themed tasting menu. Overall, very tasty except for a big miss on dessert which was German Chocolate cake, except it was actually a bad flourless chocolate cake with flavorless ice cream on top... nothing at all like it should be.

It was my birthday and I think the hostess was the only one who knew, which was fine. As for the food, the dinner was great, always love their sushi rolls, but unfortunately they were out of the flower tea. I was really looking forward to that. Otherwise, great ambiance and staff was very friendly. They had a big party close by, but surprisingly, they were not too loud so overall my friend and I enjoyed our dinner and time together.

a lovely experience all the way around - excellent service, wonderful ambience, some fun and funky presentations of super fresh ingredients - the restaurant was simply wonderful. The Rock (Wagu Beef thinly sliced raw that you cooked at table side by placing on a literally hot rock) was so much fun, as was the Chocolate Fog desert - a large chocolate and raspberry truffle surrounded by a moat that oozed fog when water was dropped into it. The sashimi was soooo fresh and the filet a wondrous cut of beef - yummm all the way around

Wanted sushi in downtown and my favorite place was closed. Had “The Rock” and a couple of rolls. Taste was very good, only knock is the rolls were not assembled like a top shelf sushi place. Looks and taste were good but the roll fell apart when you pick it up. If not for that it would be a 5 star rating. Cost is on the high side but it is downtown.

I brought my daughter here for dinner for the first time and everything was awesome. The service was excellent, and the food was perfect. Our waiter Deepak tended to us like we were family - and since my daughter wasn't feeling very well at the time, it was a definitely welcoming. Thank you... Yes, we will be back.

A beautiful setting in town filled with nice restaurants....this was a9+ setting. Dinner was a great experience with nice service and superb food. We began with arugula salad followed by the Busters Roll. Arugula was sweet with a mild bitter aftertaste...some of best arugula we have ever had. For dinner my wife has the black cod in a broth - flavorful and cooked perfectly. My dish was a fun Cioppino. Great flavors in the broth and excellent fish and shellfish. Our server Jaemmy was sweet kind friendly and yes an excellent server. We’ll be back why in SF. K & M
