I enjoyed this restaurant very much. The sushi was good and the martini hit the spot. Too bad they are only opened Monday through Friday for dinner.

I stopped by Kyo-Ya on the way back to our hotel with my daughter who wanted to take sushi back to our room. Since Kyo-Ya was on the ground floor of our hotel (The Palace Hotel, 5 stars in my book), we chose it without much thought. At first, I was taken aback by the prices ($14 for a California... More

Fantastic sushi and soba soup. I ordered off the menu thru room service and the food was served as part of the conference.

Tried this place while on a business trip in SF ... and my server pretty much completely ignored me. I sat at the sushi bar and expected to be able to order directly with one of the two chefs’ right in front of me, but apparently not. I had to wait an inordinately long amount of time just to order... More

Met some friends here when they were in town on business. They ordered about five different dishes and we all shared. I enjoyed my pick, the spicy tuna rolls, but my favorite were the rolls topped in fish eggs and gold flakes. Maybe it was the presentation that got me, but I actually did enjoy the Pop Rock type explosion... More

Went to Sanraku & Kyo-ya on same day; was like night & day. We love sushi, & this was excellent. Decor was nice, waitress was lovely. We started ordering miso & udon soups, she suggested the udon soup was large enough to share, which we did. I really appreciate that she was willing to lessen our order even though it... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with attentive service. Fish is very fresh and plates are as beautiful as they are delicious. They are celebrating their 20 year anniversary so ask about specials.

Kyoya have the best sushi I have ever tasted and I have eaten sushi in 100+ places. Nothing beats Kyoya. If you give the place a low grade you don't known what you are talking about. Yes, it's expensive, cost me 100 bucks the last time. If you're looking for a replacement for McDonalds you've come to the wrong place...... More
