About the restaurant
62 years of loyal customers can't be wrong. We are grateful to all of our customers, employees, and critics (...though we may not always agree!). The only way to find out the truth is with a visit. Oft imitated, never duplicated. Thank you in advance.

About the restaurant
Located in San Francisco’s Design District, Niku Steakhouse is a meat-focused restaurant, highlighting an in-house dry aging program, exclusive cuts of coveted Japanese A5 wagyu with an emphasis on wood fired cooking.

Niku, by the Omakase Restaurant Group, hosts a dining room oriented around a roaring custom binchotan charcoal and wood-fired grill, where guests watch as Executive Chef Dustin Falcon (Lazy Bear, The French Laundry) and his team prepare steaks to perfection. At Niku, there is a true marriage of American and Japanese sensibilities. Falcon’s cooking is driven by the terroir of Northern California — which finds its way onto the menu through foraged ingredients and products from local farmers — met with the highest quality domestic and A5 Japanese Beef.

We thought this was another restaurant that we had been to 12 years ago on our anniversary but it wasn’t. But we were pleasantly surprised with the food, service and ambiance of the restaurant. Is a shame that this place is going away to make way for a steakhouse. I’m not much of a fan for French cuisine but everything I had here was delicious and I will fondly remember visiting this restaurant during our 14th anniversary.

We had a limited amount of time before an event so we could only get appetizers, but they were all very delicious. My only critique is that the polenta poutine would benefit from the polenta fries to be crispier. Otherwise all very good

I thought the food and wine selection were good. The service from the waitstaff was outstanding - friendly and knowledgeable. I would request slightly more vegetarian and vegan options (maybe just one or two dishes more -- there were two pasta dishes that were vegetarian, and a few side dishes but no entrees). Desserts were quite good. Decor and ambiance were fine. Pricing was slightly on the expensive side. Two people for a full meal including cocktails, a bottle of wine and desserts was ~ $500.
