Akiko's Restaurant & Sushi Bar
Sushi lovers must have the omikase tasting menu!
I’ve been coming here every time I’m in San Francisco for the last several years. It’s the best!
Perfect. No really perfect.
Good food, small dishes at extremely high price without great service
Great sashimi- super fresh
Up scale sushi bar close to Union plaza, small bar seating and more on the back. Sushi and sashimi are very good quality for the fish a bit less for the rice, but i am picky and it is nicely executed. Sake menu is great and sommelier knowledgeable.The service is a bit cold and quiet slow. I would recommend if you want to spend a lot of cash. There are fine one star Michelin restaurants in the neighborhood with better quality/enjoyment/cost. I had 12 sushi, 3 sashimi, 2 glass of nice sake and a bottle of sparkling water for $200 without tip... probably the most expensive sushi place I ever visited... I think the chain SUGARFISH does better in term of taste and I pay $60 for omekaze and a few dollars for sake, a real bargain.
High points: good selection of fish for sushi and nigiri. Appreciated being able to try the variety of different uni from Hokkaido. And an excellent hamachi kama.
But overall, the space is not very comfortable — we were seated in the front near the window, with hungry, waiting guests just milling around us.
great choice of food and various ingredient
so much choice on the card that an helpfull team is always welcome to make the right choice
Delicious fresh fish with delicious drinks. Great spot!
Excellent omakase. Very inventive and luxurious offerings. Exceeded expectations.
Really creative & unusual sushi at the height of freshness. Attentive service. Tiny space but totally outstanding.
Wonderful and very fresh Nagiri and Raw sushi bar selection. However, you get very little for the price and we left somewhat hungry after quite a substantial bill. That being said all of the food we had was amazing and so fresh
Top notch! Freshest fish in the Bay Area. Fantastic service, excellent food! The waitress really knows what to recommend.
Can’t go wrong here. Was our 4th time dining here and will continue.
Excellent food, service and environment. Highly recommended
Always a joy to eat here. Fresh ingredients expertly prepared and served.
Amazing food! Just let the chef choose for you! Service was friendly and effective. Had a great time.
They are almost perfect.
Over the Top best Sushi experience ever. Recommend the Chef’s Choice, it was Amazing.
Akiko’s is an amazing restaurant if you’re looking for omakase style dining. While the prices are pretty high, the quality of the fish is incomparable. Skip everything and focus on the nigiri - the selection and craftsmanship is to die for!
Also - the sake collection is top notch.
Great sushi. But don’t expect the great service from servers.
I wish I knew the name of our sushi chef as he was extremely pleasant. This place is great for the price! We had the nigiri omakase and the fish tasted fresh with every single bite. Will definitely be coming back!
The place is small and cozy but the food is loud with how well the sushi tastes and is put together. I'd skip the traditional appetizers of miso soup or edamame and go for one of their fresh salads and assortment of sushi specials.
La comida estuvo deliciosa y fresca!! Nuestro mesero fue súper amigable y nos enseño trucos para comer sushi, todo increíble!
Everything was awesome. Impressive quality and service. Expensive, though; but worth it.
Amazing. Phenomenal. Sammy was the best.
The waitress could be more attentive for a restaurant at this level... little more omotenashi would be nice
We got the chef’s choice omakase and we absolutely enjoyed the experience of trying each piece of sushi. Without a doubt, each piece of sushi served was high quality. The customer service was excellent as well. A glass of water was never empty during the meal, and each time a plate came to the table, they would explain what each sushi was. Overall great experience.
Amazing High Quality Fish and Meat. A bit pricey, but worth the experience.
We read the excellent reviews on this quaint restaurant and had to check it out. We were not disappointed. The black cod was fantastic! Melt in your mouth, nice texture with the broiled flakes, squid dressing and ikura. My nigiri moriawase was the highlight..had to take a photo with the perfect accompaniment of Orion. Enjoyed lunch so much went back the next day. This place is worth the price. Service was excellent!
Great Omakase experience here.
Need an air solution ...too hot inside. No comfortable
Waitresses are too busy
Fun and delicious girls night out! The fish was fresh and prepared to perfection! If your considering sushi for date night or just for fun you should eat here!
I would say that Akiko's sushi was very fresh and we enjoyed the food very much. The service was good. Not superb. I'm Japanese and I'm very picky about where I eat my Sushi. It's a very small restaurant so do make reservations in advance. I would definitely recommend this Sushi joint if you are in San Francisco Bay Area.
It's rare to find a sushi place in the city that pushes the envelope on edomae sushi. Akiko's uses a special seasoned rice and brings the gastropub feel to traditional sushi-making. Don't let that mislead you, their sushi is delicious. The fish is fresh and the chefs know their stuff. If you sit at the counter, you will be enticed by the chefs' blade work. Came for lunch, but I would love to try their dinner
Good food, bad service from waiter on a bad mood
Screw all the overpriced “high end” sushi restaurants. They are trying to be like “Jiro dreams of sushi” and they are so off. I’m
Japanese from Japan. Americans are so fooled by ambiance. The food you guys!!! Are you full after leaving? Satisfied.
We left Akiko’s and went straight to another Japanese spot to actually get nourishment. Save your money. Don’t go
