Had a nice lunch with my wife, food was great. Just a little expensive. Weird location, downstairs on a main street.

We came back to the "Bune" restaurant, that we enjoyed 20 years ago, but, unfortunately, we went to the "Fish Boat" restaurant, thinking they changed the name. Food was 'cosmopolitan' sushi. Prices were ok. Atmosphere was chain type restaurant! We have to visit SF again to go to the right one.

Food was great. Took to long to get all the food. 5 minutes between bringing out each persons food. Cancelled a sushi roll. Did not leave a good tip.

We want your dishes to be as fresh as possible, Rhonda, and I'm sorry if your first visit didn't have them all arrive at once. Some meal services are busier than others, and we will send out the dishes in waves to allow for a better dining experience. It's unfortunate that this was such a detractor from your dining. Thank...

We enjoyed our experience here. It was my first time to a sushi boat type restaurant. It was so cool to see the sushi going by around you. Th sushi is being made in front of you. The sushi was very good. Very calming and relaxing time.

I dropped in for dinner while I was in San Francisco on business. The hostess was polite and sat me at the bar where they have multiple sushi options moving past you on floating sushi boats. The sushi was fresh and well made. The chef working behind the bar was engaging. It would be nice to see more variety on... More

We were going to walk to Chinatown, but found this little place instead. We sat at the Sushi Bar. The food was amazing and the sushi chef was so friendly. I'd highly recommend it.

Went there on late night. The staff behind the counter making sushi was very nice and fun. However the staff serving you aren't and take forever to take orders. Food was decent. I may or may not go back.

All of our staff are part of the Sushi Boat family because of their prompt and courteous nature, and I'm sorry to hear that and interactions with a server might have given you a different impression. It sounds like our dishes and our chefs were a hit, and I hope that we get to see you back again some time.... More

We wandered past feeling like something not western (had a bit too much fries and burgers!) and decided to give it a try. Total surprise to hit on such wonderful food! Sushi made in front of you. Sushi boats (literally!) going past in front of you on the conveyor belt. Seriously a hidden gem in the middle of the city.... More
