We were a party of three. We ordered two appetizers, the edamame and fried rice—both were very flavorful and delicious. For the main course, we had sea bass, chicken tonkatsu and soba and vegetable tempura. Everything was fresh, the sea bass was so well seasoned and buttery, the chicken was spicy and crunchy and the vegetable tempura was light and crispy. The desserts were amazing, especially the matcha shaved ice. Our server was so friendly and warm, making the experience totally enjoyable.

One of my go-to spots for a nice dinner because it is SO consistent. Service was great, as always. My friend had the omakase with sake pairings and loved it -- and he is a picky, hardcore foodie! Our server gave me a couple of sakes to try, which I really appreciated. I ordered a la carte due to dietary restrictions and ordered tsukune, tempura veg, sashimi (chef's selection) and the sashimi was of course the star. We also had sake and coffee and tea at the end of the night. We stayed pretty late and the server was very kind and did not rush us out.

Quality of food and service are great, but even though this felt way too pricy. The Omakase with sake pairing ended with a check of $600 for 2 people... The sake sommelier was very friendly and this was a nice touch, but since the sushis come and go quick, the sake pairing felt pretty rushing and we caught ourselves many times having to almost chug the glasses so we could keep it up. Because of that, it was hard to remember which sake paired with what and, in the end, we were just drinking the first glass that was in front of us. The Itamae who was serving us also promised a revisit on one of the sushis we most liked, but never server it and started cleaning his counter... I'm totally fine to pay more for good food, but other starred restaurants in SF, including Michelin stars, can offer a way more complex meal + exquisite wine pairings for much less than that.

Service was slow, food was expensive relative to portion size and quality. Needed to work hard to get server attention. Great for happy hour, lunch I'd skip.

Best Japanese in the city. Start out with the raw Kushi oysters. Then the ahi poke and happy spoonfuls of uni and ikura. The ten piece sashimi and nigiri were perfect for three of us but had to get the Ken’s Roll and Michael’s Negitoro, my favorites. Desserts are very Japanese and the shave ice hits the spot. Our server Gabriel and manager Kevin really took care of us and made it a fantastic birthday celebration!

My BF & I both enjoyed the foods -especially Sashimi & sushi were very good.
Service,decoration , music are all fine.
I could only try the special fixed menu for VD this time and want to sit at the bar ( which seems very popular) next time and try different dishes.

We went for a special valentines late lunch. Without prior warning when we arrived we were told the kitchen would close in 20 minutes do we needed to order ASAP. We did and they brought it all out with 10 minutes. It felt very rushed and not special at all. But the cost was still as if we’d had a long leisurely lunch. So disappointing. Would be nice if they would let us know that was going to be the case and I would have rearranged our plans.

The food and drinks here are always great - both lunch and dinner. I work two blocks away so am usually here on work related occasions. Last week, my parents were in town and staying at the Hyatt down the street so figured we'd have dinner here one night - which was actually the night of dad's 80th birthday. We ordered the usual fare - various sashimi rolls, grilled fare, tempura (their mushroom tempura is true delight). Overall, the food was solid but I'd have to say my overall experience was seriously dampened by the fact that after having reminded the hostess and server separately that it was my dad's 80th birthday dinner celebration, they didn't once acknowledge or even bring out a candle to blow out. Unfortunate..

Great food and an interesting cocktail menu. Ideal for large groups but also good for a booth style seating for small groups. Service was ok but fairly impersonal like a large restaurant.

Celebrated my daughter’s B’day on a Monday night and PABU was amazing. All aspects of our dinner simply outstanding. Service by Yuli was top notch. Very fresh Kushi oysters started the night followed by mouth-watering assorted sashimi and nigiri. We also enjoyed the chicken Karaage and yakitori plus the mini-Japanese pancake Okonomiyaki. Compliments to their desert chef because the matcha/coconut shave ice really hit the spot!! What a night, PABU is the best Japanese joint in the city......

We came to PABU with a group of 12 for a business dinner. A large portion of the group needed to catch a red eye flight so we had a limited amount of time for dinner. I explained the situation to our server Cecilia and everything that followed was fantastic. She helped me craft a semi-fixed menu incorporating house favorites and a variety of choices to ensure everyone could find something familiar and new to try. The food delivery was placed well to keep tings moving while giving us time to adjust as needed based on the group enjoyment. Individual drink orders nicely rounded out the options and the service was attentive and professional. The entire staff that interacted with our table were fantastic. We had a wonderful experience and the out of town business partners left town with a wonderful memory of their trip. I cannot compliment and thank Cecilia enough for making our evening such an enjoyable success!

Pabu was chosen by my work team because it has everything you need! Great atmosphere, easy to get to, and everything on the menu is delicious! The service was also exceptional, as we had a large group (and even had to add a couple chairs). The employees at Pabu were very professional and accommodating.

This location is great for financial district. Service was excellent. I realize this is a Michael Mina restaurant in SF, so prices are probably expected to be high; however, if I'm being completely upfront I'm always a bit disappointed at the cost for a couple rolls and a bowl of edamame. Frankly the rolls are small, nothing spectacular. I go here more for business lunch convenience. There are some other really great things on the menu, but it is sushi and when spending the extra money on a great restaurant, I want to walk out feeling wow'd.
