pre theater dining was perfect

Excellent light but very satisfying diner before an excellent play at ACT. Not overwhelming in quantity but unsurpassed in quality. visually exciting with matching delicate tastes. to be safe we split the desert so as not to fall asleep during the play.

Dinner - Hosted a business diner at Anzu. They provided great service to us and made us feel welcomed. The food was delicious and we sampled a wide array of offerings including sushi and fish of the day entrée. We sat in the area just to the right of check-in and it was smaller than the main larger area which... More

I came here with a friend for a brunch. They have the standard buffet option and a la carte menu. I ordered fried chicken waffle - a huge portion, very flavorful. The restaurant looks great and fast and friendly staff. Also, they offer a discount on valet parking at the hotel which is a great deal.

I have a great affinity for beautiful bars and Anzu did not disappoint, neither did my martini! The restaurant is inside the Hotel NIkko, a short walk from Powell Street BART, if you're up for taking public transportation. The public rooms, as you make your way to the restaurant, are elegant and simple. We all had a round of cocktails.... More

We were here before a show. Our waiter knew about it since he asked. Unfortunately it took a bit longer than what we expected to place our food & drinks orders. Our server was very courteous but the quality service wasn't what I would expect since he was all over the place. Food/price is very reasonable for SF. I personally... More

We had a wine dinner in the private room of the restaurant. The pass around starters included steak tartar served in a small cone that was uniquely good with a bit of rice and soy. The corn and crab soup was also excellent. A black cod course was well done. They came very close to a 5 star rating!

Entertained two Drs here last night, and it was not good. Our coats weren't taken when we arrived, and we had to drape them over our chairs all night. We ordered and then learnt that the main course three of us had ordered was not available! One of our party ordered hot stone beef starter so we had to put... More

We have eaten dinner here two or three times and would highly recommend it. On this occasion we had breakfast there. Initially we chose to go there because our hotel that we stayed in across the street no longer offered a regular breakfast option. Only buffet. We really enjoyed our breakfasts. Everything was delicious. As we have become accustomed to... More
