Very limited menu and really high quality delicious seafood but so expensive. We don’t drink and left the dinner still hungry and still spent about $180. It just didn’t feel worth it. I also don’t feel great about eating fish flown overseas that are possibly overfished. All bad for the environment and bad for the pocketbook. There are other high end sushi places in town with better ambiance and many restaurants that focus on sustainability. And there’s very little ambiance here - very sterile feeling. Won’t be back.

Service was not great. First, when we ordered a wine, the server said not to get that one as it wasn’t very good. The menu is small- why have a bad wine on the menu. Then 4 of us ordered the omakase and we also had 1 child with us and they weren’t very willing to make any accommodations. The food in the omakase was good though.

My first time at this relatively new restaurant. Sushi was excellent. Service was attentive and wonderful. The place was not full at lunch probably still recovering slowdown due to Covid restrictions. Highly recommended!

That was a damn fine meal, food was so good it improved both of our moods and saved us from a grumpy night. Service was timely, attentive and and full of positive vibes. But did I mention the food? We got the Mother’s Day omakaze with all the addons.The fish was perfectly cut (the silver fatty layer between the skin and the meat was intact on there fish pieces where it’s supposed to be, a good sign of the quality of the cut and skills of the chef), expertly prepared, deliciously and creatively spiced and with flavors delicate at places it should and with a punch when needed. Presentation was excellent as well. Dessert hit the spot just right, the yuzu panna cotta was deliciously creamy with a nice tangy touch made a perfect end of a meal. Bravo.

COVID protocols were great. They took our temperature at the door. This is the first restaurant I've been to that has done that. Good spacing between the tables. The server was very considerate of when he needed to enter into our space. Gloves were worn the whole time. Everything was paperless from the menu to the final bill. They changed/cleaned the tablet in between patrons even though two other tables around me were ready to pay the bill at the same time. Bonus is that they're one of the few sushi restaurants on the Eater SF list that is open on Mondays! Food tasted fantastic, and the chef was able to accommodate the omakase menu to be compliant with my diabetic needs. I highly recommend!

This has to have been the best sushi experience I've had in my life. You pay for it, but it is worth every cent. My partner was laughing at me for how strongly so many of the bites affected me, I was in heaven. I see why this place had such sky high food & service ratings. Shout out to whoever does the music playlist too, lively modern songs that stayed away from top 40 territory. If I lived in San Francisco this place would be a problem for me, ha. The things that made me the most blissfully happy: the uni & truffle bruschetta(had to order a 2nd one), the A5 wagyu nigiri w/truffle(again, a 2nd round was a must), the hamachi w/yuzu small plate, and the yuzu Panna cotta dessert. If you have the money, don't miss this experience.

Shio just leapt into my top 5 for omakase and nigiri locations in the city. Ordered the smaller omakase and loved it so much we both had to order it again.

An absolute must try if you are in SF! The fish is so fresh and delicious. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I’ve only eaten at a handful of restaurants during the pandemic and I felt the most comfortable here. The outdoor patio seating is away from Valencia street so no random people passing by. Overall, such a wonderful experience and the food is delicious. You can’t go wrong!

If you’re new to sushi, or want to try something very different, this may be a good place for you! But if you love classic sushi and the complex flavors of the varieties of fish, consider another place. The fishes all taste quite bland, and they mask this with a curing process in soy. So they all taste like soy, not fish.

Outside of their sushi, the appetizers and other food is quite good. Service is quite good and ambience is not bad either.
