cute little sushi shop in SF.. who can pass that up? The place is pretty small with only a couple of tables so it has a nice cozy feel to it. They have happy hour every day till 7pm which is awesome because you can enjoy small plates before your meal :) I came here in a group of 4 around 5:30 pm on Sunday night and it wasn't too packed. It took us awhile to get our menus and it might be because there were only two servers but given the restaurant size.. service should have been better. We decided to get: Fried Calamari: during happy hour its 5 dollars! and it was worth it because it tasted soooo good! The portion was decent. Sweet Potato cut roll: One of my favorites! surprisingly sweet potato goes really well with rice (: Artic Char cut roll: Delicious, very reminiscent to a salmon. Spicy Tuna hand roll: LOVED THIS. The tuna tasted fresh and spicy. Golden State roll: This has to be one of the best tasting rolls ever. The crisp apple combined with the yuzu really produced an interesting and delicious taste. The roll was slightly sweet, citrusy, and savory at the same time. Definitely worth getting. Extinguisher roll: I thought this roll was okay. It tasted good but it wasn't anything special. I thought the fire would actually cook the roll but it didn't, it was more for display. Kurodai (tataki): I never had farm sea bream before but it was tasty! I think it would be a shame if you came here without ordering a tataki plate because it was unique and they really presented the fish well plus it was easily my group's favorite dish of the night. Sangria: very fruity :) I loved how they put a lot of fruits in the drink, and the lychee added a nice touch to the drink. All the food was great, slightly on the pricier end. I'm used to bigger portions for the same price I guess. The one thing that sort of annoyed me was the slow service. They were great with getting the food out on the table until the last roll. I saw our last roll just sit at the sushi bar for 10 minutes and it turned out that they forgot about it. Other than that, I enjoyed dining here.

Delish. Tiny place, expect a good wait unless you go early. Impressive array of simple very fresh sushi, sashimi, and tataki. Also quite a few well thought out rolls. Very high quality ingredients and allegedly sustainably sources fish. Limited options if someone in your party doesn't eat seafood though, obviously. Reasonably priced for what you're getting.

Tataki’s mission statement is to “showcase the beauty and delicacy of Japanese cuisine while respecting the sanctity and fragility of our environment…[they] strive everyday to integrate the concept of sustainable dining into our menu options.” It’s a noble cause, but I was worried that its mission statement was the motivation for the overwhelming positive reviews. I also have to confess that I’m not a fan of sushi because I think the superfluous stuff rarely compliments the fish or rice and it ends up underwhelming me. Even with my reservations, we ordered the tuna, California, and the shrimp tempura roll. The tuna was fantastic, and while the rice was sweeter than what I’m accustom to it was also very good. The California roll was a mixture of two different crabs with mayonnaise and avocado and it was disappointing because my partner and I found it comparable to mall sushi. I strongly advise that this particular roll be avoided! The shrimp tempura was decent but not special. With a disheartening start, we were reluctant to order anything under the specialty rolls. Since we enjoyed the tuna, we ordered a sashimi plate. We got the regular and it’s 12 pieces of sashimi of the chef’s choice, which ended up being tuna, sea bass, arctic char, and scallop. When I had the first bite of my sashimi I immediately brighten up. The slices were generous and all were fresh and delicious. We ended the meal with green tea cheese cake with strawberries and a single azuki bean. I have to bitch about the azuki bean because there was one bean and it didn’t add to the dessert in any way! The cheesecake had a very delicate green tea taste and you have to close your eyes in order to not miss it. The slivers of sweet strawberries will mask the hint and you’re better off eating it separately. The cheesecake is not made in house, but imported from Nishimoto, which is also their supplier for fish. The rolls are not worth coming back for, but I am excited to visit again to try their chirashi, which is only offered during lunch.

My Take: a sustainable and environmentally-consicious Sushi restaurant | Went For: weekday dinner | The Vibe: the place to be for Sushi dinner | Special Dish: Chirashi or Sashmi | Avoid Their: n/a | Price Point: typical Sushi prices | The Service: the tiny space is not the ideal but the fodo is worth it | Reservations: high recommended | FYI, FRIENDS: the owner was featured on the food doc, Sushi: the Global Catch -- Eat up, Kimmie

My husband and I have been here a few times for happy hour, and it's great. Have to be there early or wait in line. The happy hour roll specials are great. This place has the best calamari I have ever eaten. Ever...and I love to try calamari at different places. The wine and beer selections pair nicely with the food.

Fresh responsibly caught fish. They have (gluten-free) Tamari. If you have Celiac, make sure to ask for take-out chopsticks as they regularly provide wooden ones for customers. The only celiac-safe menu item is sashimi.

I'm from Minnesota, and I've had better sushi there. That really shouldn't be.
