The diverse, sustainably driven menu presents a modern take on the traditional omakase experience, underscored by whimsical approaches to Japanese cuisine prepared with local, seasonal ingredients and fresh fish from Tokyo’s famed Toyosu Fish Market. With dynamic courses such as the signature shokupan, comprised of grilled milk bread, toro, and golden Kaluga caviar or the aged, soy-cured bluefin tuna nigiri, Akikos’ cuisine fuses curated ingredients and high-quality seafood with innovative preparation and presentation.

Kindly note we are currently offering omakase experiences for lunch and dinner and do not offer an à la carte menu. For those looking to expand their dining experience, additional selections of nigiri are available a la carte on the nama menu following the tasting.

The omakase lunch experience is offered at $150 per guest, and the omakase dinner experience is offered at $250 per guest.

    Incredible restaurant. Seems like Akiko’s could get a Michelin star. Can’t wait to go back next time I’m in SF

    This was my 2nd time here. Last time was over a year ago and we did lunch omakase. This time it was for dinner. All items were different and tasted great. Sake was also on point. Would highly recommend this place for their omakase.

    One of the least warm of the omakase experiences. Too much of the menu was preprepared. Looks like they are cutting corners on food and preparation.

    The star of the show at Akiko's was unquestionably the food, as would be expected at an omakase restaurant. And the food did not disappoint - it was absolutely superb. Every bite was delicious and layered with flavor. The toro nigiri and the lobster at the start were true standouts. The food is reason enough to go to Akiko's but we were also blown away by the warm, welcoming service from literally every staff member! Everyone was friendly and attentive, and this made the evening a really special experience. I highly recommend Akiko's and we cannot wait to go back!

    This was our 2nd time at Akikos and we loved our experience as much as the first time. The food was delicious and the sake pairing was excellent. Top-notch experience in every way.

    Fabulous omikase! I’m a fairly picky sushi eater and I can eat everything because the fish was so fresh and beautifully prepared. This locations is gorgeous and a wonderful fine dining experience!

    We had lunch at Akikos and were lucky that it was Spring break week. The result. Fewer than a dozen people sharing lunch and a very quiet experience ( the way my wife and I prefer to eat)! The service was excellent. The presentation exquisite. The food - so fresh - delicious. Served as a tasting menu, with the use of fresh vegetables and seafood, it was a culinary delight. My favorite was the cherry trout and the crab and lobster bisque. A fabulous meal for those who love seafood especially lobster!
