ANZU Ratings and Reviews
The sushi/sashimi we started with was excellent quality and nice presentation and the oyster shooter was outstanding. My wife said her soup was a little tepid and it wasn't clear if that was intentional, but was still very tasty. My grilled shrimp in shell were slightly under done in places and had not been left in milk while still alive, making it necessary to clean up the veins at the table. At least I got a hot damp napkin to clean my hands after peeling the shrimp, which would have been impossible with utensils alone. The sides were very good, but the supposedly spicy Thai curry sauce was not so spicy, though still pretty good. The other mains were very good according to my wife and niece.
Overall, it didn't quite live up to the expectations, but I would likely give it another try and choose a little differently with more emphasis on the raw bar selections.
The Bincho-Tan is a great value and glad to say, quality food.
I went with the Scottish Salmon as my entree, with a side of grilled cauliflower and king oyster mushroom.
-First off, I made a request to use as little oil as possible. Ok, so 9/10 when I done it and request this, they don’t so much as give it a second thought. Get this - at ANZU, my plate came out almost perfectly oil free and was still exceptionally delicious. I couldn’t believe that they actually listened to my request! Bravo to the chefs.
-The flavor of the salmon really shines. It tasted quite fresh. Plus points for cooking it to an absolutely perfect medium rare. You don’t even need the sauce (though the Thai Curry sauce was delectable and perfectly balanced in flavor)!
I ordered the “Man of the House” whiskey beverage. It was good, but you can’t taste the thyme that is supposedly in it. It was like a glorified old fashioned.
Likewise, I decided to try the maple old fashioned next. It was overly sweet. To my chagrin, it was a less-glorified, overly sugar-forward cocktail. I sent it back after one sip and they took it off the bill.
Our server, Acen, was a pleasure to have serve our table of two. He is certainly a very capable staff member. He came to our table to check on us at just the right times and was very personable. He’s good at short banter and chit chat, too, if you’re in to that. 10 stars for exceptional service through our dinner.
Last minute decision to eat here, but was not a bad choice! The thinly sliced of wagyu beef served with the 500 degree rock was amazing, as well as our entrees.
With Japanese cuisine being somewhat of a staple in our life, we were pleasantly surprised at ANZU. Would recommend this place to those looking for something familiar, with a slight twist.
Food was bland and overpriced. Hotel dining. Elegant setting but so disappointing. Why the high ratings open table? We had the two course menu and it was just plain boring—for $57 for an appetizer and main course. Plus we didn’t even drink so that money was just for the meh food. Don’t waste your time.
This has become one of our very favorite restaurants in S. F. We come to the city often for plays and our usual choice is ANZU!!!! The warm hospitality and outstanding service warms our hearts each time we go there!!! What amazes us is that the restaurant remembers us each time we come back! We always leave with a warm glow in our hearts. Many thanks again!
Our expectations were low for a hotel restaurant. Expecting mediocre food, with high prices. We were blown out of the water. Newly renovated, Asian fusion theme, Californian with lots of seafood options as well as steaks, pasta and sushi rolls. Given such a wide variety of menu options you think that they wouldn't be able to deliver, they knocked it out of the park. Our server Ace was attentive and friendly.
Had my 7 month anniversary dinner at Anzu’s. The atmosphere was pleasant, the food choices plentiful and the service outstanding. I had the seared Ahi and it was cooked to perfection. The Bar offered many Asian and American drink order. My favorite we the Bogart.
We arrived on time and 1 hour and 15 minutes still no food while others came way after us and got their food. Some even finished. It was the worst experience I ever had with an open table restaurant. When the manager came over after the hour and 15 minutes she said the sushi would be another 10 minutes. We left.
Went there with great expectations since it's located in hotel nikko which is a Japanese hotel. The restaurant is dated and stale , I was hoping the food to be good and we had ordered sushi dishes and it ended up being the worst sushi we ever had
Coming from Vancouver the hub of Japanese i know my sushi but the food here was below average , waste of time and money
The service here is always so personal and outstanding!!!! As well as the food presentations. Only disappointment this time was the chicken wrap--not as tasty as when I had it at a previous lunch. We had a delightful visit with Marcia Striffeler, the restaurants sales manager! And so enjoyed Joel and Carlo, who waited on us!
Had high hopes for this place since my wife and I love sushi. We decided to order sushi, steak, and the cod. The sushi was mediocre at best. Nothing fancy. The steak was tough and lacking seasoning. I had to cover it in salt to make it taste better. The cod I was a little too fishy for my taste. It almost had a pungent smell that you would get underneath an old fishing dock.
The service however was outstanding. We were taken care of from the moment we walked in. The wait staff was very friendly.
This would be an amazing restaurant if the food would live up to the expectation. Are usually don't flinch when I see my bill and it's 200+ dollars. But this time I felt like I was Robbed. The food is not worth what they are charging. There are so many other spots in San Francisco I would have rather visited.
Food is good but breakfast is very slow unless you want the buffet at $34/person - our milk on the table was curdled so we had to wait ten minutes for a fresh cup of coffee and $49 for breakfast for 2 seems a bit excessive for eggs and toast, lunch is better and better priced
We thought Anzu would be a good place for our daughter's birthday dinner while visiting SF. The dinner was okay, with the highlight being the wagyu beef appetizer. We had two sushi orders for dinner, one black cod and one salmon filet. The timing was terrible with the cooked meals coming out a good ten minutes before the sushi rolls. The chef needs to time the meals better given the price of the restaurant. The black cod was okay, but my local sushi spot on PA (Blue Fin) serves a better miso black cod so I was disappointed. Salmon was fair. Rolls were good. Overall, fair.
Awfully disappointing. The reviews, appealing menu and gorgeous food images on the website did not match our experience. San Francisco has a million better options with livelier ambience, finer provisions and more refined cooking.
Also, the pours of wine by the glass were really stingy and -- therefore -- overpriced.
