Akiko's Restaurant & Sushi Bar
So goood sushis !
Fresh fish, good service.
A very good restaurant I recommend.
Food and service was excellent. We both had the Omakase. Agree with other reviewers that a few of the dishes contained unique fish that you cannot get at other sushi restaurants. However, we both thought the Omakase was a little over priced, hence 4 out of 5 stars.
Amazing omakase. Loved the United. Added Wagyu beef with black truffle. Can’t wait to come back. Service was impeccable.
There simply is no better place for sushi in the city.
Awesome I highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning again!
Wonderful experience! The manager/greeter was fantastic, she was so attentive and welcoming, and it really helped make the experience more enjoyable. The sushi chefs were great to chat to, and the food was sublime. My favourite place to eat in SF. Thanks!
Went here with my wife and we both ordered the Chef Choice Omakase. We both felt that all the dishes were very beautifully plated but overall lacked flavor. The 18 courses is very rushed, they bring 3 different plates at any given time and the flavors of each course given aren’t complimentary. You get the sense that they are just trying to get you to finish the omakase as fast as possible. I enjoy wasabi on nigiri but the chef was very heavy handed on all the nigiris, their were times where I was watching my wife struggle with her burning nose because of the amount of wasabi. I overall liked the variety of the fish and was pleased with the plating but I would go elsewhere next time for an omakase experience.
Our dining experience at Akiko’s was superb. Our server was very passionate about the fish being served and her customer service skills were exceptional 👌🏻. My fiancé and I ordered omakase ($150 each), and we were extremely satisfied with the dishes the chef put together. The food was decadent, creative and tasty. We will definitely be coming back because of these reasons.
Phenomenal. We came once over a year ago and wanted to come back. Was not disappointed.
Amazing omakase and the most friendly and professional staff.
Great time at the sushi counter
Omokase was excellent. I loved how they gave you some courses from the kitchen as part of the Omokase before getting into pure sushi. Loved everything about it. Had an excellent Napa Chardonnay as well.
The best and most creative sushi in town. Lunch at the bar was an hour of bliss. Leave your soy sauce and wasabi for someone else and feast on the freshest there is, inventively prepared. Greens also were exceptional.
Top notch sushi with friendly and attentive service.
It’s not cheap but it’s worth it.
The place was excellent but there was a fly or two constantly hovering our table.
Great and fresh fish, everything is very tasty. Friendly server, will definitely return again and again.
Possibly the top sushi restaurant in the country. Impeccable service. Omikase out of this world.
The best sushi we have ever had including in Tokyo, NYC and LA. Extensive choice of rarely seen fish, presented with unique touches and ingredients. Service was impeccable and Akiko’s has a great sake list. Recommend the Uni ( both kinds), freshwater eel, sea bream and Ikura. You will enjoy the food so much you are likely to keep ordering and have a pretty good bill to show for it. Well worth every $ and more. Book well in advance as it is a small restaurant.
This place is incredible and worth every penny! Linda made our experience a memorable one. She knew the menu and specialties very well!! Definitely will be thinking about this meal for a while and highly recommend everyone to stop there and enjoy.
Very good food, good service. Restaurant was loud but otherwise good experience
Rolls were well below average.
For the price they charge, the food should be better
Exceptional variety of fish
Sushi at a whole now level. Sublime
Everything was great, worth a visit. They had sushi that were not on menus at other restaurants.
Sit at the sushi bar and give the omakase a go. It’s absolutely worth it - even for lunch!
Always a treat to visit this fine restaurant. The food and presentation are superb and the service is excellent.
Lovely experience. We had the omakase and it was absolutely worth the cost
Omakase is very special here
Food was excellent. Each dish presented nicely. Service was polite and very good. Always predictably very good place to lunch.
Food and service were both good. No acknowledgement of our anniversary was a bit of a disappointment, but still a functional meal.
Excellent Omakase and service!
I have gone to this restaurant over several years. It started out more traditional Japanese menu but now is focused more on Sushi and Sashimi. Delicious and fresh. It feels much more like special and memorable dining experience.
I’ve been coming here for decades, and it never disappoints. Some of the best sushi in San Francisco.
The food here is outstanding and I highly recommend going. Only a few issues, our service was not great for the price, I expect better service for what we paid. Second, the place is small. Come for the food and and sit at the sushi bar if you can. Get the raw wagyu.
Really ninice food, unfortunately we had to wait 30 mins for our table even though we arrived on time for our booking. A complimentary drink would have been appreciated.
Good food but service was honestly too much. Cleared the plates before we were done. The tables were so close to each other that we had a hard time having a conversation above the people next to us. Food was good but overpriced. Everything felt like such a big fuss. Why is it so difficult to get good Japanese food without all the pretentiousness in SF?
Linda was awesome and really knowledgeable about the food! Everything was delicious, highly recommend!
Nice ambiance. Food was good, except one plate we took. Weird smell in the whole place. Waiters were polite and respectful.
I'm lucky that Akiko's is close by my office, it is consistently exceptional
If you get stuck by the door you’ll be cold and if you ask them to close the door, they will tell you they can’t because back is warm.
