Great feel!!

This restaurant was recommended by my check in clerk at the hotel. It was a short walk away from the San Francisco Marriott fisherman's wharf. The food was terrific and the prices phenomenal!! Staff was very friendly. Highly recommended! Don't miss the happy hour! Highly suggest the sushimi bowl.

Was looking for a spot to eat near pier 39 etc, read the reviews for this place and thought we'd give it a go. Service was excellent - didn't feel rushed at all but was checked on every now and again. Sat at the bar and watched everything being made fresh. Food was delicious and really reasonably priced.

Suprised at wider selection of foods and drinks. Prepared sashimi and sushi freshly. Tempura was also nice. The store is approchable from Wharf.

This small, no frills place has a nice feel, friendly service, and great sushi. We arrived at happy hour so we enjoyed a few treats before dinner. Their chirashi was good though we enjoyed their rolls more. Definitely try the specials (posted on the wall). Anything with the foie gras is good but their scallops were amazing. The Buffalo and...

This is unpretentious sushi that is great quality, good price and in very low key setting. I've been here more times than the unfiltered sake I drank allows me to remember. Service and food are excellent, has limited seating which is not such a bad thing.

We recently had a very good lunch in this unpretentious restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed the Sashimi Combo, the Dinner Set and the New York plates, accompanied by several glasses of draft beer. An excellent price/quality relationship, with friendly and efficient staff, this restauran,t is recommended.

Sushi on North Beach is a Stellar Example of just that!!! I've gone quite often in the past 2 months since moving here and have... More

We chanced upon this place with our 2 kids after a long day's travelling from London. The staff were really friendly and served up a sushi feast quickly. Pretty good value too (at least compared to what we're used to in London).

This is a small, neighborhood restaurant and so can be crowded, and noisy at times. The night that we went the service was a little spotty and slow, as the restaurant was quite busy. The shrimp and vegetable tempura was excellent with a light and crispy batter. We both ordered Chirashi and, while it was good, it wasn't the best... More

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
