    Evident attention to detail throughout, from furnishings to lighting and bar utensils. Service is purveyed to a high standard, as a first visit it was unbeknownst to us that there is absolutely no visual connection with food preparation. Anyone with a developed repertoire of Japanese food experience knows the importance of immediacy of preparation, serving and consumption. The exquisite attention to detail in preparation of Japanese cuisine should be readily visible to enhance the dining experience overall.

    The sushi and the special cocktail were impressive. I rate this as one of the top culinary experiences I've had. The sushi equals or exceeds what is served at well-established Tokyo restaurants that I've been to. The speed of the service left something to be desired. I look forward to a return visit as soon as I can.

    We were blown away by the menu offerings, so different from other sushi restaurants! We had the eggplant, uni rice bowl, red crab pearls, risotto, scallops and black cod. Each was special and delicious in it's own way, The three of us had a taste of all six dishes and all want to come back to try other items. Even though we were already full, we couldn't resist trying a dessert, The yuzu panna cotta was heavenly, light, tasty, with the surprise of a little ground red beans on the bottom and sprinkled with crispy rice on the top. Each bite had all the textures and flavors. Every dish was well thought out and beautifully presented. We will be coming back for more.

    Was disappointed. Very very slow service, and extremely overpriced. It took 1.5 hours to deliver 5 pieces of sushi. 4 of us split an appetizer, was given only 5 pieces of sushi, 1 cocktail each and it was $500. Could’ve gone to a proper posh sushi place for that.

    Food was good but service was superrrrr slow and awkward. We were hungry and it took 30 min for our first course to arrive. Very odd clientele (and we constantly dine out in SF) and the restaurant smelled slightly of sewage, which was noticeable as soon as we walked in. I don’t think I’d return.

    Outstanding gourmet Japanese cuisine. Cocktails were unique and tasty. Mocktails are made for a refined palate. Beautifully curated wine & sake list. I'll be dreaming of the crab miso risotto & fatty tuna uni truffle bowl for months.

    Food was great! The only hiccup was that the food came out before our cocktails did...it was a Friday night, so I'm sure the bar was backed up but would expect that the service order would be figured out at this price point. Would still come in for food next time though!

    It was the first time I tried Sushi Sato and I didn’t know what to expect. It was delicious. We did the Omakase, which is the only way I order when I try a new restaurant, to discover the flavor journey a chef has prepared. I was elated after the meal. The nigiri and the order you eat it in is absolutely divine. I would definitely come here again.
