Akiko's Restaurant & Sushi Bar
Quite pricey for what it offers. The chef has a tendency to season most of the nigiri sushi thus unable to taste the original fresh taste of the fish, don't like that.
Awesome Omokase experience!
Our dinner at Akiko's was the best dining experience during our recent trip to San Francisco. I am not even sushi lover. I booked it based off strong recommendations for my husband, but I loved the dinner myself. Linda, our server, felt like a great friend guiding up through the meal and she didn't steer us wrong at any turn. I love the intimate nature of the restaurant with only a handful of table and the bar. Plus, there is enough on the menu for non-sushi goers. The Black Cod was to-die for. I will be certain to go back on our next adventure in San Francisco.
My favorite place
I had a wonderful experience at Akiko’s. The service was great, and the food and preparation couldn’t have been better. We were seated at a nice table by the window. The fish that was served was very fresh and delicious, delivered from Japan. It was a great spot for a date. Would absolutely go again.
Outstanding food and service as always; recommend sushi bar!
Akikos was excellent. The specials and expert wait staff made our evening wonderful.
Amazing food every time
It was such a phenomenal tasting experience. You can have a business meeting, a date or a get together of friends for a spectacular meal!
Service was superb. You will not be disappointed!
Excellent food and service
The food was phenomenal and the staff exceptional. This was a great culinary experience and I would be thrilled to dine here again. Definitely an experience!
We enjoyed the food and service! Excellent sashimi and tasting menu options!
Excellent nigiri and very friendly/helpful service. We would definitely go back!
Ordered omakase and requested to sit at the bar. They brought all our sushi out on one plate rather than piece by piece like most restaurants. They chef didn’t pay any attention to us the entire time and instead served only the couple next to us.
This is the second time I’ve been here and this was a uniquely bad experience.
My favorite place for fresh sushi and rolls where the ingredients and service are always first rate.
Never disappoints. It’s always such a different experience from other omakase
By far some of the best sushi I've had in 5+ years in SF.
Our server was knowledgeable and offered guidance with our choices. The food exceeded our expectations.
When we found out there was a special sushi roll (chef's choice) we ordered it as well as a small bite that was also not on the menu and everything was exceptional. Pricy but what you'd expect with the quality and innovation.
Tip top as usual. Fantastic menu with many uncommon offerings of the highest quality- barracuda, gizzard chad, Russian uni, trigger fish- with superb presentation and excellent service. Prepare to pay for it, but you’ll have a fantastic meal and experience.
excellent sushi but way to pricey...expect $250+ per couple
Food was incredible. Expensive, but incredible. Our waitress was warm and helped us with the menu. Great experience
Incredible food and service. Do expect to pay for ot though.
My partner and I really enjoyed the food tonight. The quality of the fish is always exceptional here. And our server was great. However, we were very disappointed when we saw the receipt because one of the dishes was charged $1 more per piece of nigiri. We had four of this piece. Akiko is my favorite restaurant of all time in SF. Whenever I'm in town, I've been religiously visiting Akiko alone or with friends. All of my friends have become huge Akiko's fans. I can't believe this type of error was going on and I was the only one to catch it. I have a pretty good memory and if I hadn't closely read the receipt, we would have been charged extra. This isn't about the expensiveness of the dish but about the principle of trust and paying attention to detail, which is fundamental to why I chose to eat at Akiko's. Unfortunately, neither one was there tonight and I am disappointed and feel defeated.
The omakase set didn’t worth the price. Nigiri was great.
Love it all
Wonderful, every bite is a piece of heaven! Really excellent chefs, top notch fish, and very friendly staff. Fantastic place. Our favourite in SF.
Very good but not great enough to justify the price!
Very overpriced sushi. Monkfish was good but besides that not worth the price
Incredibly fresh and well-prepared fish. Lovely setting and attentive staff. Perfect.
Today I had lunch at Akiko with my colleague. We sat at the sushi bar and asked one of the chefs to pick out the sashimi and sushi. Just fantastic melt in your mouth!!
The best sushi in SF!
Sushi tasting menu the best in the Bay Area. Innovative and unique!
The best sushi place I’ve been to. It’s a must!!
Great quality of fish. We sat at the sushi bar and ordered directly to our chef. The waygu beef with truffle is just a must. It was a little more pricey than expected due to their sushi being priced by piece vs the usual 2 piece but very worth it. Exceeded my expectations by far.
Great steak entree and the freshest fish. Many selections and waitress was helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.
Top quality sushi and sashimi in an intimate space. Definitely need to make a reservation, this is popular with locals and visitors alike and there are no empty tables.
Exceptional. Almost a favorite and I will definitely be back!
Maybe the best sushi I’ve ever had. Will go back for sure! Great place for a special occasion, date, or business lunch
We had a reservation and were sat within minutes of arrival. Very friendly service and very knowledgeable. We had the Omakase (chefs choice) every dish was presented and explained. The sushi quality and presentation blew my mind. I’m from Michigan and I so wish we can have this quality too. Over all on the expensive but it’s in S.F. I would have to say so well worth it! I’m still dreaming about the yellow tail , Tuna toro and Uni (sea urchin). Yum!!!
This is the best sushi bar in Dan Francisco. The prices do reflect that so we only go on special occasions but find it fabulous.
