    We were going to a show at Feinstein's and were late for our dinner reservation because of an accident on the freeway. The staff called us, let us know they'd wait for us, told us how/where to park, and we ended up with the best seat in the house at the show! I will probably try another dish besides the sushi roll next time, which was just OK, not great; the mussels were superb. We loved the experience!

    We ordered the appetizer “The Rock” , thin slices of wagyu beef that you cook on a hot rock at the table. Delicious and very special. It was an experience! The restaurant is beautiful, very calm. Service is excellent! I very much recommend this place!

    A la carte menu suspended because of a conference in town. Buffet only. Asked to pay a $39 per person extra charge if we spent more than an hour at our table. No wonder SF is suffering to attract visitors.

    Anzu is a very nice restaurant located inside Hotel Nikko. The food was very good and service was outstanding. Entrees were somewhat limited on choices, but appetizers and starters were sufficient to complete a full meal. The "Rock" is a great choice for starters. I would definitely recommend and most certainly would dine there again in the future.

    Was really disappointed in the NYE dinner menu. Beef was severely overcooked, dry and tasteless. The soup and tempura alternatives offered were cold and needed seasoning. Will not return for a set menu on a holiday again. Server was great.

    The NYE experience was just mediocre. The main entree - filet mignon - was cooked one way - medium. Flavorless and overdone. Dessert was good but not great. Everything else was unmemorable. For $150/person, it was not worth the money. Did not feel special at all. Not recommended.

    NYE meal was overpriced and horrible. I booked a pre show meal at my hotel and I selected to not have the pre-fixe, but was informed later that wasn’t an option. Ok, no big deal. I’m fine with paying for great food. The filet tasted like a dried out roast and everything but the oysters and salad were pretty basic and just plain bad. Literally went to a burger stand right after because I left so much on my plate. I’ve never eaten here, but stay at the Nikko a lot. Disappointed. If this place is good normally they should stick to what they are good at.

    Food, setting, ambiance were great. Service was terrible: Server served from only one side of the table, and put my wife's side dish (crispy potato) in front of her as her entree, then gave he entree to me, wondering what to do with the third plate (my entree). Server tried to clear our appetizer plates while we sere still eating from them and while there was food on the plate. Entrees were delivered to the table before we finished with our appetizers Server cleared our dinner dishes at the table by stacking them as if we were in a greasy spoon diner. The amateur-hour level service was shocking considering this was the premier restaurant in a premier SF hotel

    Mediocre service, especially since we were seated in the lounge, even with advanced reservations. The chicken breast dinner portion was so small we joked that it was a pigmy chicken or game hen. The bread pudding dessert was mushy/slimy.

    We thought this was a full Japanese restaurant, it’s far from it. This restaurant dose not have any identity, it was difficult to find since the Open Table only posted their address, it’s located inside a hotel building. They sell some Japanese and some Italian? Very confusing, most of all not many choices of foods. It may be good for a simple Lunch but not for a nice full dinner.

    Overall disappointing. Waitress took our order and never came back until we had to flag her down for check. I ordered a baby greens salad and they brought an arugula salad. Ate it, even though I don’t like arugula, due to no one to flag down. My husband had soup which was delivered and he had to ask for a soup spoon by flagging down a server. Had to ask for additional water, pork chop excellent, Ravioli just OK. They include an 18% tip so my husband’s theory is they don’t have to provide good service because they get the tip regardless. We always leave 20-25% tip but did not add anything. Went to Feinstein’s after dinner. Michael Feinstein very good but way to many people shoved in a small space. A major concern with flu and Covid season. The app to order drinks does not allow for any modifications and is very non user friendly. Will not be returning.

    This review is for Thanksgiving ‘22. Pros: 1)The Thanksgiving buffet food itself overall tasted good. There were some service hiccups (see below). 2) Our server Miguel took very good care of us once we were seated. Cons: 1) First, we booked on OpenTable no problems… until I got called at least three times a week later from Anzu demanding a credit card on file. That’s fine (many restaurants do) but it’s usually integrated in OpenTable - you’re asked in the app when you make the reservation. Chasing customers down days later for a card felt trashy and desperate. The woman I spoke to claimed the “system didn’t allow it” up front… which is funny because it happens all the time on OpenTable, so I know for a fact it’s possible to do in the app. 2) When we checked in we still had to wait 15-20 mins for our table and the host acted like he couldn’t find our reservation (after all the drama above, I was getting annoyed). 3) The buffet itself did *not* have everything as advertised. The menu explicitly said oysters. During the 1.5 hours we were there, I saw oysters come out once, and it was only four. Literally four. I was lucky to grab one. Same with the bao buns and maki sushi - very little fresh came out, and what little did got immediately snatched up by the hundred hungry other customers. It felt like people had to rush and fight each other to get anything good. 4) Staff started breaking down tables and chairs well before service ended and while dozens of people were still eating! It was so distracting to try and enjoy your meal while staff and carrying heavy tables and chairs around/over you (along with the not-so-subtle “get out!” vibe they were clearly giving us). We arrived around 7, and while I get the last seating was 8, and the night was winding down, it still felt tacky and tasteless. Bottom line: Won’t go back and wouldn’t recommend.

    Paid for the thanksgiving dinner event. Buffet looked picked over when we got there at 7pm. Food was pretty awful for the price of we paid. Stuffing was dry. Turkey was decent. Sushi never refilled for the entire hour we were there. Dimsum was dry. Overall a $30 value. We paid triple this per person lol. I felt scammed haha.

    Thanksgiving buffet. Just ok. Way too expensive for the quality of the food. Was just me and my husband and they added an 18% automatic gratuity. Saw my server once all night. Apple pie and turkey were great!! Hotel Nikko is amazing. Staff best in the business.

    Good Idea with bad execution for their "World Famous Thanksgiving Buffet". Had to jump through 3 hoops of confirmation to get to our table, "server" was never around and left all the work-including how the food was question-to the bus person. We were charged an 18% gratuity for the privilege of barely seeing the "server"- hoping the bus person gets a large part of that fee! Menu sounded delicious but failed to meet expectations. No one seemed to be watching the buffet line and ensuring fresh refills. Oh,and what's up with the $7.00 cup of drip coffee? Save your money and go for a buffet that more accurately deserves a $90.00 per person cost. ANZU is not that place.
