We had our team celebration over lunch and decided to order family style. We ordered couple of hot appetizers and it was good! We ordered Scallops, Toro, Salmon Belly, Yellow Tail and Uni Nigiri and all of them were delicious and so fresh! The hand rolls were pretty good too most especially the Ken Roll! The highlight of the meal was the happy spoon 😊 will definitely comeback!!!!

There are better places for sushi. We waited for at least 1/2 hour or more to get our starters of robata grill items. We were sitting at the sushi bar and luckily, the sushi chef escalated. They finally delivered, beef heart and chicken thigh were very tasty. Ordered some sashimi - tuna, salmon, yellow tail - all fine, but not any different from any less expensive sushi restaurant.

Place was very busy so service was lacking.

An extraordinary Epicurean evening with excellent service and the very best Japanese art food we've ever experienced. Stuart, the sake sommelier, was a true master and a great conversationalist. We will go back many times in the future.

Unexpectedly seated us in a private space - perfect! Service was phenomenal given we were not in the main dining room. Our drinks and meals arrived promptly and our water glasses were never empty. Meal service the way it should be!

What a delightful experience my boyfriend and I had for his birthday dinner. We wanted to fine dining restaurant and thats exactly what we got, but with stellar execution without paying an arm and a leg. The fish was fresh, well cut and we LOVED the "outside" dining area/ambiance. We will be back and not just for special occasions!

PABU was fantastic. The food was amazing, exceeding my expectations and then some. They had a full house, but the food came out very fast. I loved the music that was playing, a perfect vibe for an upscale sushi restaurant. I was in and out of the restaurant quickly, which is what I wanted, but there was never any pressure to leave after I finished eating. The staff was incredibly nice, professional, knowledgeable, and had amazing attention to detail. A manager came over to check on me after my food arrived, which just put the cherry on top of the whole experience. Well done PABU!

I was hosting a high school classmate from Mexico with friends and PABU was an excellent choice. The service was very good, although it was challenging to find our waitperson a couple of times. Also, a piece of Tokyo friend chicken karage in one of our orders was under cooked and our waitperson immediately took it to the kitchen and it the entire order was replaced -- great response and turnaround time. Our meal was delicious, we were not rushed and the staff was welcoming. PABU made a great impression.

I generally like PABU but the service was very slow and little attention was paid to simple requests (I know, extra wasabi is a stretch...). The size of the sushi relative to the mound of rice looked like a penny sitting on a silver dollar so all in all, I’m not racing back anytime soon

The main course was just ok. The main course food was tasty but not memorable. The dessert, however, was phenomenal. I will be dreaming about that custard dish for days.

Came for lunch with a friend and shared their King Crab and Seaweed salad and two rolls. The salad had hardly any King Crab and the rolls were ho-hum, very ordinary for the price, not very fresh tasting. Will be heading back to Ozumo for sushi lunch next time.

Food was good but outrageously priced. It was $250+ for our family of 4 to eat dinner. One drink each for my husband and myself. For food this expensive I expect more of a wow factor. Pieces and even rolls were very standard fare. I would have rated it higher if it were not for the outrageous prices.

This is my favorite SF place for Sushi. It's so good, not too much rice. Simply delicious. I can just eat the Hawaiian Kampachi, the Yellowtail Nigiri, and the A5 Beef Nigiri and die a happy girl. I'll be back for sure.

Enjoyed another fantastic dinner at Pabu! The oysters h/s were delicious followed by ice cold Sapporo in a special can....... sushi/sashimi fresh and superbly prepared by their chefs.

If you are looking for an upscale trendy Japanese restaurant, PABU is worth a visit. This restaurant is located right in the heart of San Francisco's Financial District. The restaurant serves sashimi, sushi and various tapas style dishes. The seafood and tapas style dishes are fresh and delicious served by a courteous wait staff. The restaurant has a large lounge area serving all kinds of cocktails and appetizers. PABU has an extensive sake' selection by the bottle but, in my opinion, the prices/mark up is "extremely high"! My recommendation is to order the jumai daiginjo, Kurozaemon PABU Label, by the carafe $48.00. This sake' is light, bright and slightly sweet with a clean finish. Pairs well with sashimi and traditional nigiri sushi. When ordering sake', be sure to ask your server for sake' cups, otherwise you will be drinking sake' out of wine glasses.

Since this restaurant is located in the Financial District, after work and dinner periods are packed and rather noisy. PABU is not your traditional Japanese restaurant, but is still a great place to visit and enjoy delicious food and drinks!
