Akiko's Restaurant & Sushi Bar
Still some of the freshest tastiest fish in SF.
Excellent service, a great dining experience.
We try to eat here as often as possible.
Some of the best sushi I’ve had. Omakase or bust.
Amazing! Our favorite sushi place in tkwn
For a restaurant trying to position itself as a high end sushi restaurant, this place fails with the most basic aspect. We sat at the counter and had omakase; unfortunately the food was inconsistent at best. Many warm dishes coming out lukewarm; the shari (the rice) of sushi temperature was inconsistent from cold to properly warm. At a restaurant like this at this price point, expecting consistency shouldn’t be an unreasonable request
Best in the city. Well worth the investment. Sit at the bar and get the best the chefs have.
We ordered chawan mushi and its v v small maybe only 3 cm of chawan mushi in a small bowl and its a ripped off 12 usd dollar .. we ordered without the seafood and still charge for full.price for chawanmushi
Great experience. Attentive and friendly service, great food and environment!
Service was very good as the waitress made detailed explanations of the menu, which changed daily for the daily specials. The sashimi was fantastic - a real delicacy of halibut, king salmon, two types of tuna and sea bream.
it made our love stoenfer
one of the better sushi spots in the area.
Tucked in a hidden spot, good quality ingredients and available for lunch.
Will be going again
Wonderful quality and unbelievable taste cushion, excellent service plus servers made on point suggestions. Truly a memorable experience which well exceeded our expectations
Miso soup, Otoro, Magura, yellowtail, salmon, snow crab, wagyu/truffle... try it all. 5* visit and experience every time.
Poor execution on the sushi rolls. Missing ingredients, unbalanced distribution, rolls were not tight. Also, not much variety in rolls on the menu; they all had about the same ingredients them.
For all they hype I expected this to be my new go-to. Nope.
Expected much higher quality food and ambience for the kind of price they were charging. Had the $150 per pax Omakase for 16 dishes. 8 cooked small bites and 8 nigiri. Small bites were pretty disappointing while the nigiri was nothing to shout about (vinegar in the rice was overpowering). Service felt extremely rushed and everything was served non-stop (nigiris were 3 at one go rather than piece by piece) - unsure if this was because we weren't seated at the counter. Felt like we were being ushered out too quickly without proper time to enjoy the dining expetience.
Impeccable service and delicious food. Can’t believe it’s taken so long to find this gem!
The service is unparalleled. The food, plating, timing...all top notch and high quality!
I have been to the restaurant before but this time was so disappointing, the cod been over cooked and marinated. I ordered Salmon roll and 2 pieces only has avocado no salmon inside at all. Nigiri over salted couldn’t taste the fish at all.
Quality and level of the food and service were both top notch!!!!! I highly recommend this restaurant!
This is my favorite sushi place. I have been going for years. The owner and staff are wonderful.
Service was exceptional.
Super Sushi. Teuer.
The chef was not serious about his sushi. He was drinking Jamba Juice while making sushi??? And he got some altitude I think. I will never come back.
The quality of the food was simply outstanding. Best sushi restaurant I have been in years.
Great service/ sushi- super creative
Really a top top top tier restaurant, everything is amazing: food, staff, service, intimate environment. Our 2nd meal and just relied on recommendations from our wait person. Already thinking about next visit.
The food was so amazing and delicious! Had the best nigiri sushi ever! As a constant traveller to Japan, this place totally equaled, if not succeeded, the nigiris there. I think the reason why they haven’t score a star is because their poor service. The waitress for our table were very cold and rude for no reason. Our waitress look like she was so mad for the 2 hours that we were there for. Thankfully, the servers were very nice and attentive. At the end, our bill was $480 for 2 people (we did order the omakase and some extra nigiris). Overall, I think this restaurant had great potential.
Excelente la comida y el servicio. El espacio es algo reducido pero el ambiente es agradable.
Pole position at Akiko's for a late leisurely business lunch is always a treasured experience for me and my guests. One-on-one conversation punctuated by moments of culinary wonder always resets my humanity and punctuates the calendar. Simply no better way to express an emotional connection or commitment to another person. Love and appreciate your partner? Enjoy the sakuramasu together!

There’s nothing like their omakase menu. It’s pricey, but you won’t be disappointed.
Returned after several years hoping the service would have improved - 10 minutes between the arrival of my friends’ lunch and mine - they seemed not to notice or find this odd in any way
The food was amazing. The staff friendly and helpful. The location great. A real treasure. It’s expensive but worth it.
Akiko's is a a true gem. The menu features the best and freshest ingredients and everything is presented artistically. Delicious and delightful! A rare treat.
Akiko's has the best sushi I've ever had. Hands down.
We had the Omakase which was great and an Uni Tasting, espectacular.
Great place for lunch - very high quality sushi and sashimi - a little on the expensive side but worth it - highly recommend it!
This was my second time at Akikos and I cannot wait to go back! I’ve never been an uni fan and my opinion is forever changed thanks to our waitress’ recommendation. The miso black cod was to die for! Best I’ve ever had from an upscale sushi restaurant. Overall phenomenal experience to start off a fun Friday night!
Amazing food. Server could have been a little more knowledgeable on menu and recommendations.
Awsome and fresh sushi!
Best sushi in SF! So glad to have a restaurant that does not require omakase and allows me to choose the fish I'd like to eat.
Outstanding in all respects, from food quality to presentation, the experience was memorable!
