Sushi Ondo is a decent place to have a nice dinner for a special occasion. It's not perfect, but most of the things that weren't so great about it can probably be chalked up to the fact that it's still the soft opening period for the restaurant.

While our sushi chef was fantastic in both food preparation and service, the waiters who helped us seemed a little bit lost. There was, overall, no greetings, no eye contact, and they seemed a little clumsy when bringing & taking away dishes to and from our table, often bumping into us because we didn't know they were coming from behind us, or attempting to take away dishes (from the previous course) while we had already started on the next one without much of a heads up, so there was more awkward bumping there. But again, this restaurant is still in its soft opening stage, so I'd say these are all just growing pains of a new restaurant, and really not such a big deal at this point in time.

I do feel like the menu can use some work, however. While the idea of a Korean and Japanese fusion omakase sounds interesting, the contrast between the delicate fish from the sushi, and the more potent flavors of the Korean fried chicken, or Bibimbap, was a little off putting. But more importantly, when the sushi part of the meal is so far elevated in its flavor, the parts that intended to bring forward Korean flavors felt a little lackluster. This is even more so reflected in the price of the tasting menu. While both the $70 base menu and the $102 base+supplement are both good prices for high quality omakase, this imbalance in the tasting menu between the shift of flavors felt a little unsettling at this price point, especially given some pretty tough competition from places like Hinata and Kusakabe, that both have menus at this price range as well. I think if Sushi Ondo were to improve on the synchronizing the two different cultures on their menu, this place would be a huge hit.

Great food, great service, great atmosphere. A little pricey when you add in the "supplements", but you absolutely should.

I had the “Jung-sik” Omakase tasting menu. I probably don’t qualify as a full-blown foodie, but I do enjoy a nice high-end meal ... and let me say that the value here was off the charts. It’s truly the best sushi experience I’ve ever had, with some dazzling takes on Korean dishes sprinkled throughout. At the end, I told the host that I’ll be back, and that I fully expect that in two years that same meal will set me back twice as much. If you love sushi, just go.

Great value and quality for the Omakase. I would highly recommend the omakase with the add on. Quality and portions were excellent. Unlike any other omakase due to a Korean/Japanese fusion style omakase, would return again!

This place is such a little gem!! It's not everyday that you find a gorgeously cute restaurant that offers Edomae style Omakase in SF at a reasonable price. We sat at the bar and opted for their tasting menu (Omakase), each piece of sushi was perfection! In between the sushi courses there were also some delicious and thoughtfully prepared korean dishes. Hubby booked this place based on a yelp suggestion and I must say at first I was skeptical. But OMG did it not exceed all my expectations!! It was such great value as well, it's very rare to get sushi of this quality in the city at Sushi Ondo's price. My favorite was the otoro, that was a melt-in-your-mouth sushi heaven experience. Chef is a SF native but trained in Japan for 15+ years. Cannot wait to go back!

It was our birthday dinner. We liked the food but we thought most servers ran into each other a lot because there's little room between tables.

What an interesting pairing - sushi meets Korea! Loved these flavors and they completed each other so wonderfully. Sake pairing was on point! I am excited to see this place grow and continue its creative thought.

The paring between Japanese Sushi with Korean flare is a great idea. It allows a person to enjoy great fish but doesn’t let them get fish’ed out. From Wagyu dumplings, to marinated pulled beef, it’s the best of both worlds!! I’m going again next month and taking my foodie staff!
