    As a repeat customer of Sushi Shio, it is with regret that I pen this review, reflecting a stark contrast to my initial visit. The dining experience on this occasion, possibly affected by it being a weekday or perhaps due to the staff on duty, was notably disappointing. Our party of three incurred a bill totaling $600, inclusive of tips and taxes, a sum that aligns with the expectations of fine dining. Unfortunately, the ambiance did not mirror this standard. The presence of no less than three flies persistently hovering around us as we savored our sashimi and sake significantly marred the experience. This intrusion not only detracted from the enjoyment of our meal but also diminished the otherwise delightful atmosphere that well-prepared Nigiri typically brings. On a positive note, the quality of the ingredients and the sake remained commendable, although there was a noticeable dip in the freshness compared to my previous visit. My initial experience at Sushi Shio was memorable, marked by exceptional service and a pleasant environment. This recent visit, however, fell short of those standards. I sincerely hope that the restaurant takes this feedback constructively and implements necessary improvements. As it stands, the mandatory 20% gratuity does not seem justified given the overall experience.

    We were looking for a nearby sushi place that was still open for a late lunch and came across Sushi Shio. My partner and I each ordered a different lunch special which included miso soup and salad. The miso soup was especially tasty. The salad was not lettuce based but a combination of thinly sliced lightly pickled cucumber along with some other small vegetables. The nigiri and sashimi were beautifully done and delicious! Although quite close to the freeway, it was quiet enough inside and tastefully decorated. Will definitely return!

    Sushi Shio is an underrated gem for any high-class date night. I have been twice. The standard menu is extremely reasonably portioned (even for an active man over 200 lbs.) The interleaving of nigiri and "more creative" dishes creates a nice variation in pacing.

    The quality of this sushi is not bad, but it’s definitely not special. Go to Saru if you’re looking for a spectacular experience. I’m a little concerned to see the other reviews…I’m not from San Francisco but it’s very possible the sushi scene here is average and expectations are lower than LA or NY which has incredible options

    Food was average to poor at best. It took over 3.5 hours for our meal. I burned more calories waiting for the food than the food supplied. Service was disjointed and it appeared the sushi chefs were overloaded with takeout/ delivery orders. Even accounting for that the food pairing was ridiculously poor. As far as we could tell this was for all of the tables as everyone seemed to be waiting forever for their food. Over $600 (incl tax and tip) 5 people One $50 bottle of sake. Maybe the worst value meal of my life. Perhaps takeout or delivery is a ok (the overly wasabi and soy flavored sushi rice made the fish impossible to taste so I doubt that too). Perhaps they had a really really off night. Perhaps they paid for their Yelp elite reviews. Bottom line. Don’t go. I never will again perhaps they will find their way at a ghost kitchen.

    A sushi find in SF. Great food and service - best value. Only small suggestion - perhaps not put the soy sauce on top of fish - makes fresh fish look a little old.

    First time here and it was a Tuesday so kind of quiet. Tried the handroll tasting and the Shio Sake Flight. It came to over $400 with tip, for two of us. Not exactly a value but the food was good and the service excellent.

    We ordered the shio tasting (95 per person) with 35 for supplement. Credit where credit's due, the 35 for supplement was quite worth it, but the rest of the menu left much to be desired. The atmosphere was enjoyable. However, the chef served me fried shrimp after it was explicitly mentioned that I was allergic to it at the start, and still charged 20% gratuity (which was around 70$) automatically. It was not a service worth that tip and I would not return.

    They added a gratuity to my party of 2. Didn’t even realize it till I got home and saw the bill. I left a very healthy tip not even seeing the gratuity added. I know large party’s often require a mandatory gratuity but never have I seen it in a party of two. Horrible. Wont be going back.

    The fish quality was subpar, it tasted very fishy. I also did not like that they used inedible items in the dishes, if I have to ask if I should eat this, don’t include it. The service was awkward as the staff is trying to give you a fine dining experience, but they’re not trained in it. Overall, the amount you pay for the quality is not worth it.

    Incredibly delicious sushi. Fresh, simple, well-made. We had a few other dishes that were also good (the scallop & cucumber salad and miso soup). The service was wonderful. My sake was also delicious. I wish they had a few more non-alcoholic drinks available, and the ambiance could have been a little bit "warmer." But, that's really nitpick-y. The food was amazing!
