We are so proud that our very own Jorge Arciga is one of the secret weapons in the SF restaurant industry! His dedication and work ethic is essential to ICHI. Thank you +ZAGAT and Lauren Sloss! 
There's no doubt about it: our top chefs are truly some of the biggest celebrities in the Bay Area. But behind every big-name chef and hotter-than-hot restaurant there's a kick-ass team that makes things happen. These under-the-radar stars work hard, get the job done and usually don't get ...

Chef Erik had a great time talking Japanese pickling with +Sean Timberlake! Check out an at home recipe in the link:
Photo: Alanna Hale Japanese cuisine is perhaps my favorite, or at least certainly in my top three. If I were stranded on a desert island, I'd be just fine so long as there was ample seafood, rice paddies, and someone to turn it all into perfect sushi every day. Hands down our favorite sushi place in the city is ICHI Sushi, and its izakaya bar, NI, in the back. We've been fans since their early days, occupying a tiny and fairly charmless space tha...

Thank you so much +Tastemade for listing us as one of the best sushi bars in SF! :)
Let’s rock and roll at these stellar spots that showcase pristine seafood, along with a deep lineup of over-the-top creations, well-filled and often fried. Masters slice and serve fresh fish to perch beautifully on nigiri at Ichi Sushi, Zushi Puzzle and Akiko’s Restaurant. And nothing feels more like Tokyo than the basement bar-like set-up of Ryoko’s, which pumps out beats and albacore into the wee hours.

This was my second time here and it was just as fantastic as the first time. I sat at the sushi bar and I feel like this is the best way to go because you can have a customized course selection determined by the sushi chef. He selected pieces based on our preferences and made them in an order similar to how you taste wine or beer, lightest to heaviest. We finished with the wagyu sushi and I'm still thinking about that today because it was like "cheeseburger sushi". A thin beef slice topped with torched fat gave it a slightly caramelized sweetness. Oh my god, so good. I'm not a connoisseur of sake so when I described to the server the kind of tastes I prefer in a wine or beer, she delivered just what I was after, Thank you ICHI for making such a memorable meal for me. I also love the hexagonal tile in the bathrooms, overall the design and decor is very fine and 5 star as well.

Table of 2, Friday night reservation. There was room at the bar but we opted for a table. Didn't really have a great first impression because the layout of the restaurant is actually a maze. if you're sitting towards the front of the restaurant, you can only get out one way, and the tables are too close together to walk through. Figuring out how to get the bathroom also required a double take. There are a ton of options available on the menu. Many people recommend the omakase on Yelp, but we were told it would be in the $90+ range. Instead, we opted to try a few of their more izakaya style dishes. Miso Asari Clams: A salty mixed miso soup with clams. It was very oily but delicious. Then, some nigiri. We got the Maguro Zuke, Saba, and Shiro Toro. I didn't like the large amount of wasabi they put on these, since they used fake wasabi. The maguro zuke had very little flavor, and literally tasted like nothing. The other two were a bit more flavourful, but definitely not worth the $3.5-4 per piece price. We were pretty disappointed by the quality of the fish. We then got momo yakitori, which is chicken thigh. The meat was very tender and juicy, making us want to order another skewer. We chose the buta katu niku kushiyaki, which was pork shoulder. Also amazingly juicy and delicious. A single skewer was only $3.50 each, making it the best value to price ratio on the whole menu. I'm surprised no one is talking about these skewer dishes at all. We also tried the kampachi kama, which is amberjack fish collar, the best part of a fish. Very delicious and more filling than most items on the menu. This was $12 and great for sharing. We were not full after finishing all the dishes I named above, but had already spent ~$30 each so decided to call it. The service was friendly overall, the interior is very modern and clean, although the layout really bothered me. The non-sushi options on the menu are AMAZING, definitely recommend trying them over the overpriced sushi.

Ok sushi - not nearly as mind-blowing or creative as they tout it to be. Decent beer menu and some ok shareables if you're looking for sushi.

Decent food but not amazing. Wait is long and food is slow. Service was ok. Weird rap music with Japanese dinner. Pricey. Weird selections for food. Ocean trout nigiri sushi was stringey. They have WiFi but don't let you use it.

Omakase must eat at the sushi bar! Fish is fresh & delicious and the best part is, it's not extremely pricy like omakases usually are. It's also close to lots of bars and Mitchell's ice cream, so a great spot for fri or sat nights.

I've been looking for a suitable replacement for my favorite sushi restaurant since my previous favorite closed. Ichi is definitely in the running. The staff was excellent and the sushi was top notch. We ordered the chef's selected menu and were not disappointed. Can't wait to go back!

Third time there and, alas, enjoying it less with every visit. The place remains extremely popular (I.e. crowded) but the nigiri seemed small, bland and uninspired. Other dishes were disappointing. For example, the okonomiyaki was slathered in spicy mayo and bonito flakes, making it too salty and spicy to enjoy. Considering the premium price, I expect higher quality and attention to detail. Unlikely to go again.

My baromater is a spicy scallop handroll and Ichi had one of the best I've had in SF. Tim - the owner has done created an awesome sushi bar which is quite the challenge here in SF. As some reviews indicate - it's good to know what to order because the fish is good...
