Chotto did not disappoint its good rating. The Hawaiian roll was some of the best sushi we have had. It was tasty and so light you were hardly aware of the rice. My wife had the Ramon which she thoroughly enjoyed. The BBQed sticks were...More

I really enjoyed our visit. The staff was incredibly friendly, even though they had run out of our favorite dessert, bacon mochi. Small restaurant but still possible to have a private meal. Excellent sushi!

I tried three small plates and was very impressed. I started with the Uni Hotate. Think of it as a scallop / uni sandwich with micro wasabi. It was very fresh and very good. Next, I had the bacon mochi, which was amazing. The bacon...More

The food and service here is fantastic and they have an incredible range of sakes. The staff were also very knowledgeable about the sakes which made our visit a great dining dining experience AND an educational experience. This is a MUST do in San Fran.

I have to agree with previous reviews that the pick of the menu was the bacon mochi. The bacon is charred to perfection and the dish is rich, packed full of flavor and melt in the mouth fabulous! The Gyoza dumplings were excellent as were...More

Visited San Francisco for a day to get grounded, just to realize, that I love the Las Vegas heat (it was cold, windy, but sunny in San Francisco). I took a walk from the Palace of Fine Art, and passed this fabulous inviting restaurant. Sara...More

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
