I love Kinjo menu , people is good , food is so good , especially can sit in front of the chef ! Will come back more !
The restaurant was closed and has been closed since last December not sure why I was able to make a reservation.
We made a reservation. When we arrived the restaurant was closed for renovations after a 45 drive into the city. Did not have the courtesy to cal us livid
A fabulous and unique experience.
Kaiseki meal with 6 ($85) or 9 ($120) courses. Plus you get a chance to order more food before dessert. Excellent food quality and presentation. Seating is spread out and roomy. Definitely recommend for a quiet date.
Amazing food. Sushi chef is spectacular.
Really expensive for a pre determined sushi dinner
Great food. One of the few high end sushi places with a female chef. Expensive but worth it.
Over priced fix'd menu offered elaborate twists on sushi. Quality of uni & maguro not consistent with price.
Hard surface floors & walls makes dining experience less than pleasant.
Enjoyed our time at Kinjo. Staff was first class and very accommodating to my wife's food allergies. Atmosphere was warm & casual, but a little bit noisy with the one large table seated centrally in the restaurant. Omakasi with 9 course was well shaped, portioned, timed and prepared on the plate. Outstanding courses included uni hand roll with salmon roll, spider roll, tofu custard and smoked fish Negri-style.
We went to Kinjo for my husband's birthday and it was a great way to celebrate. The food, the service, the atmosphere was amazing. It is definitely a special occasion place - and it is worth every penny.
Overall, very solid place. Front of house and sushi bar service was excellent. Several unique and enjoyable courses as well. Cool vibe to the place as well. One comment I have is the Nigiri pieces are cut small and the proportion of fish-to-rice is a bit higher than I'm used to.
We had an amazing time! Such a great meal! May, our server was the best!
It was sublime! From the presentation, to the creativity of flavors, to the freshness of the fish. A wow all around. I've had many special omakase dinners, but this was memorable. Highlights were the seafood broth (perfectly flavored, beautiful mix of textures - decided I could eat it everyday), the cold smoked course, all the nigiri and sashimi, and the soft shell crab roll. We enjoyed savoring the texture and the flavors of the fish, which were all unique. Best was that we could order off the a la carts menu towards the end to get more of our favorites. The 9 course omakase plus any additional items add up to a pretty pricey meal. However, it was worth every bite!
Amazing experience, high-end service. Friendly but yet professional employees. I would recommend to anyone seeking an high-end experience with on point service.
We had an outstanding meal. Everything was perfect and presented expertly. We will go back again.
The whole thing was incredible. I recommend the Wagyu beef.
Kinjo was amazing! Quickly becoming my favorite place in the city for omakase. For freshness, creativity and service - Kinjo far outranks the top restaurants in the city.
This was a truly spectacular experience - the omakase tasting menu was divine, a treat for all the senses! As was to be expected, this was not a cheap meal - quite expensive, but delicious and rewarding overall
This restaurant is a hidden gem. The omakase menu is such a great deal, beautifully presented fresh food. Sitting at the bar you can see all the action. Everything single bite was amazing...go here before hpthe lines starts forming.
Simply Exceptional! Clearly one of the best sushi spot in San Francisco. Highly recommend! Outstanding fish quality, attention to details in the presentation and Chef Takatoshi Toshi definitely knows how to make your dinner a culinary experience you will remember and want to repeat!
I had literally the best meal of my life at Kinjo. Huge thanks to Taka-san for being friendly, open, and generous with explanations of his craft while also preparing the most gorgeous and amazing sushi I've ever had. When I bit into the cold-smoked wild golden eye snapper I think my soul left my body for a moment.
Best sushi I have had in recent time. Great service and really clean and carefully prepared dishes.
This omakase restaurant on Russian Hill was difficult to find as there was no visible outside sign, only small unassuming printed menus which could easily be missed. Wife and I arrived early (5:45 PM) for a 6 PM reservation on a Saturday but the door was not open. At 5:55 PM, the door opened and there were several couples waiting outside. We had made reservation through OpenTable for 6:15 PM and requested the sushi bar, and I was called by the restaurant stating that for the sushi bar, we had to come by 6 PM. We were seated at the sushi bar promptly. This restaurant is relatively large for an omakase only restaurant, with about 10 seats at the sushi bar, and quite a few tables. Behind the suhi bar is a rather large kitchen where at least five cooks were working diligently, often interacting with the chef. There are two omakase choies, a regular nine course one for $120 and a six course “omakase delight” for $85. We chose the regular omakase. The chef served each morsel one by one, and each was fresh and delicious. The sushi was varied, from oyster to Japanese squid to Japanese sweet fish to eel, among others. The chef used torch several times to sear the fish. They have a good choice of sake, wine, and beer. Wife had two glasses of sauvignon blanc and I had two bottles of Japanese rice beer. Overall, the ambiance was dignified but intimate and the service was impeccable. Overall, an excellent omakase restaurant, not quite at Kusakabe level but superior to Kiss. We will be back.
High quality ingredients, delicately prepared.
Attentive and gracious service
Superb food and service. Went with the full tasting menu. Highly recommend.
Went home n made another dinner afterward
My favorite sushi place in SF. Like the neighborhood, wonderful atmosphere inside, and great service. The sushi was wonderful (if you are not adventurous then you may want to ask them to keep it simple and they'll happily oblige). Our sushi chef, Miyukisan was a wonderful hostess and was very observant. The smaller menu was perfect but if you are very hungry get the larger one.
we'll be back here soon.
We had a great time here. They were attentive, food was amazing and
This is not your typical neighborhood sushi restaurant, meaning if you are a California roll type of person then you probably won't be able to appreciate the cuisine; however, if you have a bit of curiosity and adventure than this "omakase" restuarant is for you. The sushi is perhaps the freshest I have tasted (mostly from Japan), and the service is impeccable. The knowledge of the staff and care that goes into each dish makes this a restaurant not to miss. Grab a seat at the bar to see the magic as it is happening.
If you're a serious nigri omakase diner, this isn't the restaurant for you.
The food was excellent with the exception of fried fish bones and fried prawn head. I realize these where for the sake of presentation however I felt pressured to eat them and I would have rather not. They are trying to hard to be better than Ju Ni. They should lighten up.
Very creative presentation for Japanese food that leans towards contemporary. Everything was delicious! Portions are fairly small though. Was a bit hungry even after their larger 9 course offering.
It was a wonderful experience on a Tuesday evening when the place was mostly empty - weekends apparently become packed. The tasting menu, the smaller of the two, was a wonderful selection of fish and preparation techniques such as mild cold smoking pieces right before serving.
There is a dangerously delicious a la carte menu you can expand the tasting menu with. It's offered near the end of your set dishes.
Being sat at the sushi bar adds to the experience, possibly by tenfold.
The food was fresh, tasty, and beautifully prepared and the staff was friendly and attentive; they were also willing and able to accommodate my sister's soy allergy with a few days advanced notice, which impressed us. Overall a great dining experience.
The person serving water and drinks was very intrusive at the bar. I felt interrupted in a gruff way constantly.
Excellent food and an overall great experience. We sat at the bar facing the kitchen - IMHO the only way to get the full omakase experience. We ordered the full nine-course menu and had the personal attention of the senior chef. We could watch him prepare each course and talk to him and ask questions as dinner proceeded. All of the courses were good and several were way better than that. Omakase restaurants tend to be pricy, but worth it when you consider the time, effort, expertise and experience expended on you and your companions. It's the full experience. My lovely spouse was totally enthralled.
The food was superb. Not a place for a cheap night out but reasonably priced for the quality and the service. I loved it and would definitely go back.
