    Palace Hotel, 2 New Montgomery San Francisco CA 94105
    Exquisite Japanese fare - including top-notch sushi, a monthly changing multicourse kaiseki dinner, and sophisticated, unusual hot and cold dishes - is the draw in this rather underdecorated series of rooms tucked away in the back of the posh Palace Hotel. More

    O Izakaya Lounge

    1625 Post San Francisco CA 94115
    Despite the upscale decor and potentially sterile hotel location (Japantown's Kabuki), this restaurant manages to create the casual, welcoming vibe of Japan's convivial izakayas, where groups of friends or co-workers gather around a table for a few hours, knocking back large quantities of alcohol while fortifying themselves by sharing small More

    San Francisco Sunset (Inner)


    1290 Ninth Ave. San Francisco CA 94122
    The menu is headed "Japanese Noodle Cuisine," and almost every table in this cozy spot bears a steaming bowl of somen, udon, soba, or ramen, with toppings ranging from the simplest (green onions and seaweed) to the most elaborate (shrimp, scallops, baby squid, fish cake, and vegetables). But there's a More

3339 Steiner San Francisco CA 94123
It's like Hard Rock Cafe with sushi -- excellent sushi. The AOR music is pretty decent, too, with the odd Bay City Rollers tune thrown in for low comedy. The rolls, despite cutesy names (49er, Steiner), are splendidly imaginative, especially the crawfish roll and the Flying Kamikaze Roll. Traditional sushi More

865 Market St. San Francisco CA 94103
The signature ramen at Ajisen Ramen, an international chain based in Kumamoto and big in mainland China, is its Kumamoto-style ramen: straight noodles in tonkotsu (pork-rib) broth, the bowl topped with seaweed, cabbage, and an egg. The opaque, 10-hour pork broth is capped with a spoonful of an aromatic brown More

542 Mason San Francisco CA 94102
149 Noe San Francisco CA 94114
A quintessential neighborhood restaurant, welcoming to the first-timer and especially so to the regular. Nicely situated on a corner, in a big square room. The vast menu of sushi, sashimi, rolls, and a few hot dishes is supplemented by a changing list of daily specials. Good list of sakes. You More
1497 Church San Francisco CA 94131
CLOSED Quiet, stylish spot offers very good sushi and sashimi, with standout roles reserved for specialties like wonderful beef negi maki, rich, tender, sakana misoyaki (fillet of miso-marinated butterfish), and hamachi and tuna tartare with lemon-pressed olive oil. More
689 Mission San Francisco CA 94105
At Michelin-starred Ame, ultrafresh, Japanese-influenced seafood preparations like tempura poke with ogo seaweed and cuttlefish noodles tossed with sea urchin share the menu with stylish yet universally pleasing entrées such as duck breast with mushroom-foie gras bread pudding and crispy roast suckling pig with potato purée. Ame's specialties are the More
5041 Geary San Francisco CA 94118
Sushi bars and sports bars don't typically overlap in the Bay Area, but at tiny Ariake, you can sip an Asahi, tuck into an assortment of rolls or a teriyaki-drenched entrée, and watch a game on the flat-screen TV positioned behind the bar. The servers are friendly and prices are More
2365 Chestnut St. San Francisco CA 94123
In contrast with some of the Marina's raucous sushi bars, Asa Sushi is clean, tidy, and minute, a family-owned operation with good service and low prices. The Japanese menu won't surprise anyone who has eaten a lot of sushi in the United States: rolls stuffed with tempura, spicy salmon, or More

41 Montgomery St. San Francisco CA 94104
2251 Market San Francisco CA 94114
While the name suggests otherwise, this location of an area minichain is the sort of cute, modern, fun-oriented sushi joint San Francisco has in spades. The '80s music is saucer-rattlingly loud, the cocktails flow freely, and the menu is long on sushi preparations with chuckle-provoking monikers, like the Power of More
