We dined here on a recent trip to San Francisco, just before Thanksgiving. The place is hopping and be sure to make reservations because its very small with only a few tables and a sushi bar. We sampled the toro sushi and special rolls- the HIP HOP roll-very good. The salmon sushi was also very good, as was the scallops... More

We had a sushi lunch and enjoyed it. Costs are a bit higher than would be ideal (thus the 4 rather than 5 star rating) but fish was fresh and the rolls were very well done.

A small place that was packed on Saturday night, even at 5:30PM. Got there a little late for a 5:00 reservation but they seated us anyway. Very fresh and well presented. It took a little while for the order to come even though we were the first customers to arrive. Within 10 minutes the place was packed and humming with... More

I went on a date night to Otoro. We got there a tad before our reservation but had to wait extra 15 min for our table. The place is tiny so plan for additional waiting. The menu selection looked OK but the food, fish quality was not that great. Unfortunately we did not experience friendly service so don't think I... More

Absolutely bar none my favorite evening in San Francisco. The establishment is petit, the waitstaff swift, and the food delectable. I believe we ordered three times just to extend the delicious experiment. Really worth trying for a table. There isn't an ounce of pretension, which I definitely appreciate.
