    I went here for my birthday about a week ago and I’m still thinking about some of the most perfect bites I had here! We had such a great experience— our sushi chef did an amazing job plating and explaining each course and adjusted the rice/wasabi to our preferences; the rest of the staff were super attentive and knowledgeable as well! Make sure to get the beverage pairing. I’m usually happy with splitting a bottle of junmai daiginjo, but opted for the pairing and it did not disappoint. Since it was my birthday week, I went to another omakase restaurant a few days before coming to Sato. Although it was a similar price point, it seems unfair to compare the two; Sato was by far on another level above the other place I dined. Can’t wait to go back!

    Spectacular Omakase experience, remarkable fish from around the world, served expertly by Chef Lee, whose artistry is delightful to watch and who makes wonderful conversation throughout. We went early on a Thursday and were practically alone in the restaurant, which enhanced the experience.

    The Omakase was not a traditional sushi Omakase. It’s sorta fusion. The service was lovey and our chef was kind and we enjoyed his service. The fish was very fresh. I kinda wish we’d just eaten at the restaurant and skipped the expensive Omakase.

    Came for wife’s birthday dinner and the omakase experience exceeded all expectations. 2.5 hour dining from start to finish and each dish was artfully and deliciously done. Service was on point w/ never an empty glass. Wish we had room for the extra 35$ maki- maybe next time. We split the sake pairing which was perfect for us.

    My omakase was one of the best, if not the best omakase I ever had. The chef, Lee, was amazing, knowledgeable and made the experience so enjoyable. The ambiance was wonderful and everything was exceptional. Each piece was unique, beautiful to look at, and absolutely delicious. The only comment for improvement is that the sake pours were light each time. While they might “save” money doing that, they lose money (because you won’t get another glass) and good will. Still, it’s a pardonable sin for an otherwise outstanding experience!

    One of the most memorable meals I’ve had in a long time. Every piece of sushi and dish of the Omakase was something special from start to finish and although there was a clear personal favorite it was very hard to pick a second favorite. They were all that good. The Cherry Salmon was my favorite, the heirloom tomato salad was the most surprising. The Sommelier was amazing at his job! The entire staff really created a great experience!!

    Found this place by chance on Open Table as we were in SF for a couple of nights, staying fairly close by, and wanted some good sushi. It was an incredible experience to be at the bar and watch the love and attention to detail that went into every dish and piece of sushi.

    Excellent experience. Nicely balanced tasting menu focused on sushi. Seasonal fish included in tasting (sakura salmon) made it special. Thank you Chef! Sake pairing was interesting. Some unusual sakes were introduced by Richard along with background info on the breweries. The room was elegant and warm. Sato is an impressive restaurant!

    What an incredible experience we had last evening at Sato Omakase with Chef Min at the helm. We had the 12 course tasting menu & desert which was amazing. We also had the beverage menu for an additional $75. The tasting menu was $195. Everything was paired beautiful. Our group of 4 enjoyed the evening so much & will definitely return. Chef Min was very engaging as we asked him so many questions while he was preparing the dishes for us. He is a real talent & we are now fans of his. The service was first class with the waiters gliding in & out effortlessly changing our utensils as magic was performed in front of us. We look forward to another opportunity to experience Chef Min’s creative dishes. Part of the menu consisted with a collaboration with Korean Chef Mun who came over to explain the dishes to us. We met Chef Li on the other side of the bar seating and look forward to experiencing his creations also. A very special experience definitely worth a detour!

    Went here for our anniversary, the food was a complete knock out. Absolutely mouth watering and amazing. However, the service was a bit awkward. While we were seated at the counter; it was a great experience to watch the chef create such incredible dishes. On the other hand, it felt awkward that we were being watched with a close eye by the other staff….noted: we were the very first seating, so the first 45min-1hr were a bit odd. Great food & sake list. However, wasn’t really worth $700 CAD for the experience/overall. We left hungry and ended up getting a slice of pizza across the street. Next time we visit SF we’ll be sure to check out Sato Sushi or Sushi Hon instead.
