Okoze has been keeping neighbors here satisfied with excellent Japanese food for years. Prices are a bit high, but then so is the quality.

Any time I'm craving sushi, Jason is the only Dr. I trust. I'd highly recommend calling ahead to sit at the Sushi Bar in front of Jason and doing the omakaze. It's the ultimate sushi dining experience and something I always do for friends coming to visit. The best sushi I've ever had has been in front of Jason.

Their sushi is as good as I've ever had, anywhere. Loved the ambiance, too. I would love to give it 5 stars, but we didn't like one of the rolls we ordered and didn't eat it. I let the waitress (who recommended it) know and she was very polite but charged us for it anyway. Maybe that's on me, but... More

Our second visit was as delectable as our first. On a Thursday night, we circled the block a couple of times to find street parking. Then, we waited only 5 minutes as walk in for a table. It was quite crowded. The waitresses are so friendly and accomodating. We love the miso soup which is clearly homemade and the best... More

This Russian Hill neighborhood sushi restaurant exceeded my expectations! Delightful cozy interior. Serene. Gracious staff. Our house miso soup was delicious....fried tofu and small squares of fresh tofu. The shrimp and vegetable tempura rocked...so crisp, light and delectable! A stand out. We ordered two rolls: The tsnami roll had the freshest cubed fish....so slippery, clean and yummy. Our eyes reflected... More

I loved my dinner here! Chef's choice rolls were fantastic and the tuna tataki was on point. The service was just ok, but no real complaints. Make sure to sample some different sakes, as they've got a good selection of both hot and cold. This is definitely on my list as a go-to sushi in San Francisco!

We were 3 people for dinner on a friday night. The place wasn't specially full, but we were told to wait 30minutes, what in the end ended up being an hour and half, with either us asking constantly when we were going to be seated or them saying that we would be seated soon. Anyway, once seated they took half... More

After wandering around from the Fairmont trying to find another close by Sushi destination (which turned us away) we happened across Okoze. Great service, very interesting flavours. Different to what we have experienced in Australia but amazing non the less.

We dined here for my birthday on New Year Day. The restaurant was completely full at 6:15 pm. We sat at the bar and ordered the Chef Omakase. It was smart to sit at the bar and let the chef guiding you which piece of fish to dip in soy and which not to. The fish was extremely fresh and... More

Just what I wanted and even better than I expected from a San Francisco sushi place. Unlike the first one I tried, I was made to feel very welcome, and the food was utterly delicious. Subtle tastes that make me really appreciate the value of prime ingredients. I'm sure I'll be back.

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood 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.
