This is the best Japanese food in the Bay Area. Jackson is a master chef and his food is an art. If you love sushi, you must try this place.

The ambience was fine, but the chefs are a joke. The chefs were loudly greeting their acquaintances whom suddenly popped out from the restroom side (yes, they did fist bumps too). This strong contrast of boorish chefs and fine food made our experience became a disappointment. You can find a better-quality experience in somewhere else with half of this price too. Not recommend this place at all.

Omakase is my favourite Japanese, especially Nigiri restaurant in San Fransico. It's a really nice place and the chef, also the owner, Jackson is really nice and easy going. This is a nice place for a date or a business meal. Really worth it! Highly recommend.

We went to Omakase for our anniversary. The restaurant created all sorts of special touches for the occasion, making us feel special before we even began. The meal itself was spectacular— quality, taste, and presentation could not be better! The sake pairing menu was excellent and highly recommended.The chefs and staff were very friendly and engaged in good natured banter with the guests seated around the sushi bar.
Overall, a memorable evening and well worth it.

I have been dying to come here for awhile and the stars finally aligned. Was able to join a couple of friends and went for the Yamato Omakase.

The timing of the plate delivery was perfect, I never felt rushed or like I was waiting for food to arrive.

Portions were perfect. I was worried that I was going to be too full by the end of the meal but by the time they served dessert I was ready.

My favorite of the Nigiri was the Kamasu (Japanese Barracuda) cant recall ever having it before so it was a real treat.

The staff was attentive and yet didn't hover or intrude so it was really nice to have a quiet evening with my friends were we could just chat about the food.

Would love to come here again.

Sake pairing was excellent with the Yamato omakase. Smoked amber jack is my favorite fish. Trout roe was also delicious. Yuzu zest added to some dishes was a refreshing flavor. Best miso soup I've ever had. Glad I sat at the sushi bar. I loved watching chefs sear fish and beef, grate fresh wasabi, slice fish, etc. My main issue is the price of the meals. Not enough outstanding dishes to justify the high price. Some items I did not like and would not want to eat them again, such as giant clam, too salty soy sauce, pollock fish.

The food was very good, but I didn’t feel the service matched the price or the Michelin Star. We arrived 2 mins after the hour, and it took a while to get our first bite, then we felt rushed during the rest of the meal. The chef seemed to be distracted by the couple next to us, and forgot to announce what a few pieces of nigiri were. Finally, I was a little off-put that they charged $4 for green tea when we were spending over $200 for the meal. Overall tasty sushi, but I’ve had better omakase experiences at other restaurants.

Once again, the Michelin Star restaurants disappoint. Apparently, weird has replaced good for the mark of a decent high end dining establishment. After a 1500 dinner for four, all I can say is "meh." And frankly, that's being nice. Most of the dishes were not terrible good. There were one or two exceptions, but nothing terribly noteworthy.

The house-made wasabi was quite good. So they have that going for them.

If this was a regular, non-Michelin Star rated restaurant, and cost less far less than it currently costs, I would say it was good. However, due to price and rating, I was underwhelmed.
