Wow...the apps were incredible. The Tuna Pyramid, the Lost Salad, and the Punch were all incredible. The tempura was fabulous. The sushi rolls (spicy tuna and dragon roll) just mediocre-nothing special. Maybe we ordered wrong-we should have stuck with the first page of the menu rather than the... read more

We went to eat right when it opened one night and the place did not miss a beat. Service was outstanding and everybody that work there was involved in the service. The menu had raw shrimp which I never have had and I was surprised. I liked the shrimp and everything else we ordered. We will be back for sure.... More

Absolutely the best meal/cocktails of my life whenever I am in San Fran. Sit at the sushi bar-- you won't be disappointed. Amazing staff, incredible food.

My wife and daughter would like to eat only the pyramid of tartare, a combination of guacamole and sashimi served with homemade potato chips. But I enjoyed the crunchy pork appetizer. The sushi was creative and very tasty.

Blowfish Sushi To Die For makes the best sushi I’ve ever tasted. I stress that may be because I’m a Londoner (and sushi during the week for me usually means nabbing some mass-made salmon on rice from the supermarket chiller cabinet). But there’s a fun and inventiveness to the Blowfish maki rolls that I’ve not seen anywhere else. And damn,... More

Phoned in a reservation for six while in driving to the place and they accomodated us. The waitress was second to none. She was friendly, helpful, & knowledgable. The Sushi Chefs provided a culinary... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
