SFReview

The upscale omakase spot in the Financial District has been holding it down since 2014—so expect an orderly and tightly-run operation. During the 18-course meal ($185), staff will drop off pristine nigiri, shabu shabu with slices of toro, and braised black cod swimming in a green tea in front of you like clockwork. By the time the final course comes around (a flaky unagi nigiri), you’ll be so full you might have to be rolled out. But a meal at this omakase institution is always an excellent option for a solo date or once-every-few-years type of meal. Request a seat at the bar.

Serious quality sushi, provided you're willing to pay. Akiko's Restaurant will even serve you up a baby barracuda.

Eiji in the Castro is one of the best low-key sushi spots around.

The Shota

The Shota is one of the more expensive omakase spots in the city, but it’s absolutely worth the high price of admission.

Come to this lively, aptly-named SoMa spot for some of the best omakase in town.
