Speechless. From the moment we walked in, to the time we were seated, everything was such a memorable experience. The concierge and the chef were phenomenal. The food. I can't even begin to explain how good it was. All I can say is, Omakase should be on everyone's bucket list of restaurants to eat at in SF. :)

Left my credit card and they texted me right away from my Open Table reservation. So was able to turn around and get it. Great service and a truly unique experience with real Japanese imported sushi. Highly recommend!

The overall experience was very good. I took my husband to Omakase for his birthday. We very heavily weight the quality and taste of the food, which was exceptional. The preparation is very fun. While our chef was rather quiet, we did not mind that at all and he definitely tried to explain every thing he put in front of us.

However, we had some strange experiences with the staff prior to our reservation. I received a text confirming our reservation and in the test they requested we change our reservation time 15 minutes before otherwise the timing would be condensed due to another reservation starting after ours. We were able to accommodate this request, but as an Omakase style restaurant I was shocked they would have to ask us to do this. We made our reservation for our preferred seating time and since the chefs are the ones serving the plates and dictating the timing, I do not understand why we were asked to change our reservation time. I would expect at such a high-end restaurant would work the timing out before accepting the reservations.

Also, the space is quite cramped. I appreciate the bar-seating, but I was definitely brushing shoulders with my neighbors the whole night.

Finally, we asked for a recommendation on sake and I was surprised that the only recommendation suggested was the most expensive option. At our hesitancy, the person insisted the most expensive option was the one we should get. I recognize we were already splurging, but we did not feel comfortable refusing in that moment and did not feel we could choose any of the other more reasonable options.

I have been to Omakase now 3 times in the past 3 years. It is by far one of the best traditional sushi restaurants in the US. The service and attentiveness is excellent and the food is top notch. Highly, highly recommended.

Latest update: They saw my review and sent me a text saying they would send my partner a gift. We are not expecting a gift, but the “gift” they told me about is still no where to be found.

I brought my partner here for her birthday and this is not our first omakase experience. The seating was VERY tight and squished. I was literally shoulder to shoulder with the person next to me.

The fish was okay. Not good enough to pay over $500. I didn’t care for the over use of uni and the use of truffle in multiple dishes. When I have omakase, I expect the fish or A5 wagyu to be the star of the dish, not black truffle/truffle oil/truffle salt.

Lastly, everyone there was celebrating their significant other’s birthday. It also happened that all of the females were celebrating their birthday’s. Everyone received a candle on their dessert and a rose. My partner did not receive a candle or a rose for her birthday. I’m not too sure how this happened, but I expected more of the service as I am paying A LOT for the food and experience.

I personally will not be coming here again. It’s too expensive and not worth it. There are plenty of other omakase restaurants out in SF that are 4-5 stars with excellent service.

Excellent dining experience from reservation to trip home! We were celebrating our anniversary, they prepared a special placard for our spot and gave me a beautiful rose at the end of the night. The service was impeccable and kind, not hovering or in any way intrusive. The sushi chef educated us on each of the dishes, the fish, the prep, the history. Fabulous. And the food was AMAZING: not your everyday sushi, inventive preps and unusual fish. I’d go back in a second!

The ambience was fine, but the chefs are a joke. The chefs were loudly greeting their acquaintances whom suddenly popped out from the restroom side (yes, they did fist bumps too). This strong contrast of boorish chefs and fine food made our experience became a disappointment. You can find a better-quality experience in somewhere else with half of this price too. Not recommend this place at all.

Omakase is my favourite Japanese, especially Nigiri restaurant in San Fransico. It's a really nice place and the chef, also the owner, Jackson is really nice and easy going. This is a nice place for a date or a business meal. Really worth it! Highly recommend.

We went to Omakase for our anniversary. The restaurant created all sorts of special touches for the occasion, making us feel special before we even began. The meal itself was spectacular— quality, taste, and presentation could not be better! The sake pairing menu was excellent and highly recommended.The chefs and staff were very friendly and engaged in good natured banter with the guests seated around the sushi bar.
Overall, a memorable evening and well worth it.

I have been dying to come here for awhile and the stars finally aligned. Was able to join a couple of friends and went for the Yamato Omakase.

The timing of the plate delivery was perfect, I never felt rushed or like I was waiting for food to arrive.

Portions were perfect. I was worried that I was going to be too full by the end of the meal but by the time they served dessert I was ready.

My favorite of the Nigiri was the Kamasu (Japanese Barracuda) cant recall ever having it before so it was a real treat.

The staff was attentive and yet didn't hover or intrude so it was really nice to have a quiet evening with my friends were we could just chat about the food.

Would love to come here again.

Sake pairing was excellent with the Yamato omakase. Smoked amber jack is my favorite fish. Trout roe was also delicious. Yuzu zest added to some dishes was a refreshing flavor. Best miso soup I've ever had. Glad I sat at the sushi bar. I loved watching chefs sear fish and beef, grate fresh wasabi, slice fish, etc. My main issue is the price of the meals. Not enough outstanding dishes to justify the high price. Some items I did not like and would not want to eat them again, such as giant clam, too salty soy sauce, pollock fish.
