    The staff were accommodating of a last minute time change. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. The creativity of the pairings and presentation of each was on target. Pricey but I would return.

    Excellent sushi - exceptionally fresh. Attentive and friendly service. Great beverage selection. Highly recommend, though the omakase-only price probably makes it more appropriate for a date night, business dinner, or special occasion.

    Wow. Once in a lifetime experience. The production was incredible. The synchrony of the staff and elegance was breathtaking. The cost was high… very high… but something that you absolutely should do at least once.

    Fantastic Omakase lunch. Each course was in itself a work of art. The nigiri was fantastic and the rice was spot on. You have the ability to add a few extra pieces at the end and the uni was truly remarkable.

    My husband and I had one of our most memorable (and expensive) meals ever at Akiko. After having trouble finding the restaurant (there’s no sign on the street), we stepped into a quiet and upscale dining experience that was as equally beautiful as it was delicious. We were blown away by the omakase tasting menu and even got chills several times while enjoying the amazing dishes. The drinks added up quickly so I would recommend skipping to keep costs down.
