    Food was great but unfortunately the service was rather spotty. I understand due to Covid there may not be enough workers, so it was disappointing. We had theatre tickets. We were there in more than enough time but we’re still very rushed. Please hire more wait staff and sushi chefs, or don’t take that many reservations.

    Silverware had food from previous diners stuck to it. Food presentation was quite good, but overall quality was at best average. Service was professional, but subpar to other restaurants in the immediate area. This is a hotel based restaurant and likely sufficient for travelers looking for a good meal. However, for those looking to go off property, there are better values to be had.

    Dinner was excellent. Loved cooking skewers on our own little grill on our table. Service started out great, then waiter seemed to disappear. Dessert of s'mores was not great. Ok, but not what was expected after great meal. Took forever for check. Busy there but not slammed so guess waiter just forgot about us. Too bad as this would be five star if service didn't drop off and finally disappear!

    This is an upscale Japanese restaurant. The food, service, and atmosphere are all excellent. I had black cod and it was as good as I have had anywhere. As an added bonus, the restaurant provides preferred seating for the show afterwards at Feinstein's.

    I have been to Anzu several times, but this evening was a real disappointment, due totally to the lack of management and inadequacy of the service staff. Low/more affordable wines ($60) out of inventory, long wait for any service other than water, when finally served, incorrect and omitted items. The entire experience was very disappointing.

    It's great to eat here if you're seeing a show in the hotel; you get priority seating and almost free parking. As a destination restaurant it's just good. The food was good, but it's not cheap; stick with the sushi and Japanese cuisine. The cocktails are on the small side, as well as the wine pours. We'll keep going for the show perks and stick to the Japanese food and bottles of wine!

    My brother and sister-in-law were in town to celebrate my sisters birthday so we decided to go to Feinsteins to see a show and then have dinner at Anzu - the menu looked wonderful. We had a fantastic dinner, I had the steak bavette (great!) we also had a few sushi rolls. Everything was excellent including the service and In particular we loved WILLIAM!!! There is something truly special about him and I would go back again just to see him! Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    Anzu is a nice setting, but the value of Mother's Day Brunch of a basic, lukewarm mediocre breakfast without Salmon, fresh omelette or crepe, at $75 per person is a huge disappointment. Does not live up to it's reputation, and I regret taking my family there. It was embarrassing, because it looked like a $20 buffet at best.

    In the past, Restaurant Anzu has provided one of the premier buffet holiday experiences in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. No longer. Buffet was severely abbreviated, pickings were slim, and we were ushered out because something in the hotel set off the fire alarm. Curiously, all the hotel and restaurant employees remained at their jobs inside the building. I guess Hotel Nikko/Restaurant Anzu do not value their employees very highly.
