I Privé - Sushi Sake Spirits
We reserved the table on Tuesday at 12 pm and got confirmed. But when we got there on time, the restaurant was closed. We had to find another place for lunch. Not good!
Appetizers were so-so. Entrees were delicious. Service was challenging as the server seemed to have trouble understanding us.
The level of flavors in the sushi rolls sauce needs to be elevated.
Best Sushi restaurant in the Bay Area.
Best fresh sushi in the area. Love this place.
Absolutely fantastic, will definitely be returning. Excellent service, tasty food, owner came up to us and gave his personal recommendations - he was very passionate about his culinary creations as well. Everything was outstanding!
Excellent food and cocktails were amazing. Staff is a little brusque. Definitely recommend
Super! Great food and service.
We had a reservation for 11pm.
We arrived in front of the restaurant around the 10:45 pm but they were closing all the stuff in front of us.
So we remained without dinner.
Really bad experience.
We had kids with us & the servers were very generous and patient.
I will not go back.
Very good customer service and food presentation. Nice clean decor.
We choose to allow the owner to guide us through a seven course meal and it was a wonderful experience! Food was amazing and his guided tour through the dinner was amazing. Definitely recommend!
We were a party of two, and had originally reserved a standard table. However, we saw the vibrant bar, and instead chose to sit at the bar.
The bartender greeted us warmly, and walked us through the menu with amazing details and recommendation. On asking him about his culinary chops, we learned that he was The owner and Head Chef Stanley Chan! He was himself bartending that day!
What followed was a part of flavors on our palate. We started with Sriracha Edamame, followed it up with Josh (their trademark dish), and then ordered two designer roles of Sushi. Since I was also getting tipsy with a delightful Japanese Whiskey sampler, I cannot recall the name of the rolls. Meanwhile, my partner-in-crime was smiling sipping her delicious Lychee Martini.
We topped off our meal with a dessert, again recommended by Chef Stan-the-Man. It was green-tea ice-cream that was melting in a martini glass as Stan poured hot sake on it. The ice-cream had a crispy-fried Salmon chip adding crunch to the dessert.
Each dish was carefully made and had amazing flavors. I love Sushi, and often try highly rated places, but this was by far the best experience I've had! We thoroughly enjoyed and will definitely visit again! One of the best dining experiences I've had!
IPrive is fun. The food is good the manager i does a good job. Good for small groups.
The 007 roll is the best!!! And great cocktails. My friends and I love meeting here for dinner.
Absolutely the best food, service and evening yet. Dan outdid himself. He ordered, explained and paired each and every entree. It was a Michelin Star Dinner! See you next week!
I Prive continues to be my favorite sushi spot in the general SFO Airport area. Sushi is great Sake is great.
Great! Best sushi in Burlingame, great experience. Can’t wait to go again!!!
Friendly staff very good service. Everything was prepared to excellence. The menu has a very nice variety. Prices are very fair. Happy hour is highly recommended for a great deal. The owner is present most often and is very approachable kind and attentive. I’ve taken my family there many times and we always enjoy our time there.
We went here for a birthday celebration. We had to ask twice for the hot sauce and we never received the miso soup we ordered and yet we were charged for it. Our server seemed rude, constantly asking if want to order more food. We felt rushed although our dinner was at 6:30pm this past Saturday. Great food selections and we were happy with our food choices. We will definitely be back for the food and hoping service can be improved.
Portions are micro sized.
The server was upset that I told her I was not ready to order as my husband stilll looking at menu. She never came back to ask how we’re doing and she gave our check midway through our meal and did not ask how our meal was or if we needed something else or If we wanted to look at dessert menu. Then she sat down across from us with her back to us taking with her colleagues. I expected more from this restaurant
Food lover, must try this place!!
The food, this place has very unique approach and was very good!! Loved it!
However, Despite their independent menu, effort and uniqueness, the restaurant ambiance is unmatched for the quality of food unfortunately. It’s too open, feeling very exposed and feel for everyday dinning and not for special occasion or business meals despite their wonderful food.
Not impressed by this place. After living near here for 6 years, I thought I would try it out. I have noticed a dwindling of crowds, but we were celebrating. We got a reservation at 8:30 and then within 20 minutes were told the kitchen is closing. Why offer reservations so late when the kitchen is closing? This is bad manners. We were forced to do the chef's selection and were not given an opportunity to look through the menu. Our cocktails were mediocre at best, and we were also not offered if we wanted another one. Strange. They did not seem interested in serving us, pressured us to order what was convenient for them, and were way over priced. We went to La Corneta next door after to get burritos. $250 was out bill. RIP OFF. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Great staff and even better food. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
My wife and I had a fabulous evening at this restaurant. We had edamame as an appetizer. I had the hamachi dinner and my wife had the Katsu Bento. The food was amazing and the service was superb. We most definitely will be coming back to this neighborhood gem.
I had a dinner reservation at 8pm, didn’t get seated until after 8:40. Slow leaving customers inside, understandable and they bought a round of drinks. Overall good time...
We had a wonderful waitress who took the time to walk us through each dish! The food was delivered in a timely manner and was delicious.
A complete waste of time and money... Would've been a great night for us but turned out the other way, fish comes in really small and thin slices, it wasn't that fresh too and kind of dry. Sushi rolls are pretty expensive (thats not the issue) it's just wasn't worth it, they have really great fish & ingredients combination but even the rice wasn't even a real japanese rice.. after taking orders, our girl server (I cant remember which but she has lots of bracelets around) didn't bother to check on us, she just clear plates and put the food, and that's it. Im sorry but Im not coming back. There are a lot of good and worthy japanese restaurants around.
We love I Prive. The sushi is fantastic and beautifully prepared. It is SF quality sushi in Burlingame. The owner is usually working the bar and helping serve food. He is proud of his extensive bar selection and happy to give samples. My husband and I go on a regular basis and love sitting at the bar.
Since your in Burlingame, how about providing ingredients that are special. Such as a healthy soy sauce made with sea salts or wasabi and ginger with no chemically engineered ingredients. It’s all about less white salt and wild caught fish. Offer brown basmati rice too.
My experience here was HORRIBLE! I had a reservation at noon. As I approached the counter, the hostess started rolling her eyes. She seated us. Said a server would be with us. The woman who seated us proceeded to clean the windows with windex. Then she returned to the table and said...I'll take your order. She took our order and came back 2 min later and asked us to repeat our order. She stated she was new...we understood and said no problem. Our miso soup was watered down with carrots and onions. Strangest miso soup I've ever had... and it was COLD. We complained and she brought us new soups which were boiling hot. Our sushi was incredibly small and so were the chicken terriyaki pieces. We also ordered cha sui ramen. That was plentiful, hot and good. There were no other patrons in the restaurant other than a family of 4 sitting inside. I had to wave down a hostess for more water, more tea and the bill. They were NOT ATTENTIVE at all. I would NEVER RETURN nor refer this place to anyone!!!
Felt as if it was a little expensive for what I got but the customer service was great and food didn’t disappoint.
We pulled this place out of a hat, figuratively speaking, because we could not agree on where to eat. Each of the three of us found something we really liked, and two of the rolls were recommendations from the waiter. We enjoyed the ambience of the entire area and this place integrated well. Try it, you'll like it!
Fun place. Good food, mostly Asian fusion. Served by a very interested and attentive wait staff. And w the active involvement and attention from the very committed owner. We were in town for a conference and went twice for dinner in three days
Menu has wide range of choices. Server seemed a little rushed to get us to order but was very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Sushi was creatively done and tasty. Could have used slimmer plates as it overlapped our narrow table.
Presentation is beautiful and much better than most of the food. OK service at the bar. Mixed drinks so so - weak . Overall - it’s not our too choice to return.
We were 'sold' into the $79 tasting menu and while the food was good, the value is very poor. This was our third visit but after this experience it may be our last.
Order ala carte, and don't be sold on a poor deal.
Food is awesome. Service was really bad. She forgot our order, a couple times.
