Delicious food with amazing service. We felt very taken care of by our server, Darshan, and other staff member, David. They were all very attentive, and it definitely added to the experience. Starters were small, but artfully crafted. Entrees were actually large portions--the Miso cod entree was HEAVENLY and super buttery. Perfect place to celebrate our anniversary!

This was my first time at this restaurant. I was meeting a friend for lunch and we both enjoyed it. I don’t remember the name of what I had but it was shrimp in a bowl with rice noodles, shredded cabbage and carrots and a delicious sauce. The whole thing was quite delicious . I was greeted warmly upon arrival and all the staff were friendly and helpful.

Had dinner on the SF food week and ordered the special prix fixe dinner being offered. First up the salad it suppose to be an apple/arugula/endive/carrot pickle frisée with Roquefort and what I got was a salad made up mostly of radicchio and no cheese so the flavors were biter and nothing to balance it out. Also, there was only 1 small piece of a pickled carrot. Poor execution on the staff. Next up was misoyaki black cod (gindara) the fish was perfect the dashi was subtle with a hint of truffle. The pumpkin gnocchi on the other hand was as hard and over cooked; it was like chewing an old piece of gum and lacked any flavor and did not finished it. They were going make a couple of more but I declined because there was nothing to taste. Finally, the goat cheese cheesecake tasted old from the fridge and I don’t blame for making it in bulk for the menu but it was not satisfying at all.
This was there opportunity to win over customers and it did not do it for me. The waiter apologized for the errors and mentioned it to the chef and they did comp my daughters dessert to make amends but nothing wowed us. The staff was pretty friendly but there seems to be a disjointed effort; it lacked the seamless service that I get from a well run restaurant.

We were there for SF Restaurant week of $40 dinner set. The salad is not tasty. And has weird red polka dots dressing..The black cod main course was good, but portion is so small. The cheese cake has a weird goat cheese which I definitely do not like. Overall, the meal is just average or below average to me.

The octopus was flavorless and sushi very spicy and just ok. They told us about the free glasses of sparkling wine only at the end of the meal when we were ready to ask for the check and just leave.
I would not recommend it

The food was superb and exactly what we were hoping for and expecting if not exceeding our expectations on some dishes. The food was delicious and left us wanting more but we couldn’t fit anymore into our very satisfied belly’s haha. The service was amazing, the waitress was very knowledgable about the dishes and ingredients as well as very courteous. She catered to our needs quickly when needed without leaving us looking for our waitress. She was extremely attentive without being too bothersome for a romantic meal. The atmosphere was spectacular for a romantic setting and the lighting was perfect for mood setting. I give everything 5 stars undoubtedly and plan to return soon. We also tell people about this location because its so amazing which is located inside Nikko Hotel and would be my only complaint about my experience was that it was tough to locate as there is no closure about where the restaurants actual location would be located quite a few floors up inside of the Nikko Hotel. Other then that, it was an overall beautiful experience and a must do again.

We were seated 30 minutes after our 8pm reservation for the Christmas dinner buffet, and then at 9pm, we were told that the buffet was closed. Over $300 (including 18% gratuity added automatically for a party of only three) for mostly appetizers. Very disappointing experience and not good way to celebrate Christmas.

Had reservations for Christmas dinner buffet. Overall very good. Some of the meat was dry, but that par for the course on most buffets. My main complaint was that I had a reservation at 7:00PM and was not seated until a little after 7:30PM. I understand it's Christmas and you can't predict how long everyone will stay, but that was a bit excessive.

After a number of prior visits with excellent service and pretty good food, Christmas dinner was disappointing. I had the wait thirty minutes past my reservation time for a table. I had to actually ask for an ETA re when I could expect my table before anyone acknowledging the wait.

When we finally received our table, I expressed my frustration to the hostess and manager and they seemed stunned that I would be frustrated.

When we are finally shown our table there were at least five empty tables that would fit my party of four.

After this start, the food was mediocre albeit it was a buffet. The quality was much better at past Christmas buffets. All in all a very disappointing visit. They overbooked the tables and did not plan for the number of reservations.

Good food. Expensive. Automatic 18% tip (which we knew about) for buffet is ridiculous. Wine >$18/glass and they fill 20% of the glass. Love the variety of a buffet and like the dining area but you definitely pay an excessive price. This is our 6th time for holiday dinner at Anzu and the food this time was by far the best experience of the 6 times we’ve been.

We were visiting SF for the Christmas holidays and after much research decided on Anzu for the Christmas Day buffet. Worst decision! The food was below average, they must have the most untalented chef !!! While the menu sounded great the execution of the dishes was poor. The only dishes that somewhat met my expectations was a squash soup and a savory bread pudding. The buffet was $75 per person and was barely worth $25 ! For a family of four I paid$425 and was sorely disappointed! Our dinner next day at Bouchon more than made up for this mess they called a dinner. Their deserts were store bought pies and cheese cakes . I have written reviews for open table in the past but have never received a response, so let’s see if they post this review
