Cloak + Petal
Our concept for Cloak & Petal was drawn from the implementations of the words themselves. Cloak alludes to the ideas of secrecy and a social sphere below the levels of ordinary life. Petal implies a gathering of friends and families, similar to the Japanese tradition of "hanami", where people gather under the blooming cherry blossoms for food, drinks, and companionship. This "cloak" takes you underground to an abandoned Tokyo subway, a stratum of society all its own, an artist's dream. As you cross the threshold of the space, you enter into a lounge meant to make you feel as though you are seated outside, similar to a waiting platform. A trellis of draping vines and teardrop lights suspends from the ceiling, creating a more intimate feel. Beyond the concrete arches, you are met with high ceilings and cherry blossoms, the epitome of "petal" itself.

Everyone was attentive and helpful. Carla made great suggestions of food.
Had a dinner “date “ with my 8 year old son , we both enjoyed the food ! My favorite was the edamame plate and the corn soup ! Had a seaweed salad and sashimi plate , it was great as well . Son’s favorite of course the dessert 😆 and California roll . Also tried Devils Advocate ( alcoholic) and a Pinacolada mocktail (non alcoholic) both were super tasty ! The servers were friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back !
Sushi rolls were tasty and the cuts of nigiri were nice and tender, but the soy sauce they serve is extremely salty. We also thought it was weird that they pour the soy sauce for you and then take it away, and if you want more you have to ask for it and repeat the process.
We had two sushi rolls an
Thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The sushi was extremely fresh, even the rice was just cooked, unlike some sushi bars. The flavors were wonderful - not classic Japanese, but creative. The pork belly is to die for. And enjoyed the wagyu roll.
Though crowded, we could still carry on a reasonable conversation without yelling. And we love the decor (which is why we went in the first place).
The service was really slow.
Fantastic all around! Food, service, ambiance. We can’t wait to go back.
The front of house is run under the incredible eye of Robbie. His approach to service is impeccable and his passion for the guests comes through. The food and drinks were great and for a second visit, I enjoyed it more than the last. 10/10
Wasn’t real thrilled with our table, asked for a booth and was told when we showed up that they were all reserved in advance (I specifically asked to reserve a booth) They sat us by the door, every time someone went in or out there was a blast of cool air coming in because door would stick open. Receptionist would have to go over and manually close the door. Has anyone at C&P heard of WD40?!
For desert we asked to move over to one of the booths as very few patrons had showed up for their reservations apparently. The waitress was very accommodating.
That said the food was amazing. Highly Recommend the Duck and the Sashimi is as good as Japan. The decor in the restaurant is fantastic also.
One other mention are the wicker chairs that they have are very uncomfortable. They need cushions for them. After a long meal and discussion of almost 3 hrs my rear end felt like it had the imprint of whatever pattern the chair had in it! My date ended up actually sitting on her jacket.
Restaurant is gorgeous and cocktails are out of this world.
This place is amazing!! The cocktails were incredible, the food was superb, and most importantly... The service was GREAT!! Super happy fun people and that made the experience that much better! We will be back 😀
Food was ok, service was ok.
Wonderful place, great service, and great food - all 5 stars - plus there's even a valet right next door so you don't need to navigate parking in the crowded Little Italy area.
Great experience, service and food were awesome and we had a good time
Food came out super quick and each dish tasted absolutely amazing. I highly recommend getting the cheesecake for dessert it’s the best I’ve ever had. Our server was super sweet and took great care of us the entire time even though it was crazy busy, would 100% give this place a try!
On my previous 3 visits to Cloak & Petal, we had a mind-blowingly good food experience. When we went for an early New Year's Eve dinner, the food was mediocre at best. While I am happy to chalk our disappointment up to the pace of NYE, it's tough to pay a couple of hundred dollars on a dinner and walk away disappointed. If you're going to be open on a holiday, make sure you have the staff in place to maintain the quality.
Dinner on New Year’s Eve was amazing!
Our driver arrived 30 min late, then the traffic in Little Italy was backed up forever! I called and left message we were late. They evidently didn’t get the message, but accommodated us. We were only about 20 min late. They were very gracious . The waiter was great. Beautiful room and cherry tree. Unique menu.
I wish I knew what the different dishes were that I saw on line. I wasn’t sure what to order, but it was all delicious!
Food and service mediocre at best. Table next to us ordered same item and presentation was much more thought out.
Fresh and delicious seafood. One of the best sushi experiences that we have had in the last couple of years.
Great vibe and friendly staff at the bar. The hostess was not helpful at all with our reservation so we had dinner at the bar, where they took care of us! Great restaurant
Loved everything about this place and can’t wait to visit again. Took my daughter there to celebrate her bday. Food was delicious, drinks were on point, atmosphere and artwork was a nice touch. Definitely recommend
Very over-rated for the quality of food you get. Not recommended.
Service was a little slow. Food comes out in order when ready. We got our bowls of rice first, I got my soup & then we got the second soup by the time I was finished with my soup, then the entrees came out separately, then the sushi roll came out last.
8/10. Sat at a small table near the front door. Food was amazing. Service was above average. When the food server delivered the Karragge chicken we requested a side of sauce. She mentioned the cost would be a $1.00 up charge we said no problem. Unfortunately she never returned
Great food and service what more can u ask for
Food is top notch, decor is fantastic. It can get very loud and sometimes the service is really slow. Overall I like this place a lot.
Cloak + Petal was so beautiful! The decor was very modern and it like being in Japan at the cherry blossom garden. The sushi was scrumptious and fresh. The miso soup was very flavorful and great. Only, thing was I thought they would do something special for birthdays but they don’t really have that.
Great experience! Loved the service and the food was outstanding!
I love the place!
It has hip-hop and sushi.
The ambiance is really cool.
The service was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. The glazed duck breast was delicious. The sushi was alright. The amount of seaweed salad was a lot which was great. My date and I enjoyed the experience. :)
I’ve been there many times and this time was a terrible experience. More because of the service and the wait. I didn’t get my drunk until 30 mins after I was sat down. Like wtf? Didn’t enjoy my meal because the waiter didn’t give me what asked for. Just disappointed
GREAT time at Cloak & Petal! I went there to celebrate my birthday Saturday night. The staff was so accommodating - it was a busy night and they sat us at a table that was not optimal for a group of 8. They were able to find us a large table in the back for my friends and I. I was so grateful the staff went out of their way to make my birthday special. Will definitely go back next time I am in SD!
Great - cool - fun and good food
Just skip it or to the bar have a bad drink and leave
Beautiful and "One of a kind" of restaurant!!!, excellent food, service, staff and ambiance!..
Made a reservation for a birthday dinner. Everyone loved the ambiance and the cocktails. Great location!
Hostess was incredibly rude when I asked to be sat in a different section.
Overall, the place seems to be in a indenity crisis. Is it a high end sushi restaurant that also has cocktails? Or is it a cocktail bar that also serves sushi? Hard to tell and it’s a problem.
The restaurant was very noisy so conversation was difficult. Otherwise the ambiance was okay.
There was no non alcoholic beer available although one of the managers did try to find some at a store across the street. That store did not carry it either.
The food was good but not remarkable and not worth the cost.
Manaya was such a great server. Would come back just to see her!
