I'm here in the off season. The Fisherman's Wharf hotel recommended Sushi on North Beach. I was impressed. Small but sufficient menu. Went twice this week. Tempura excellent. Sushi very fresh and tasty. The best part was the friendly wait staff. Happy hour lasts until 7 PM with 22 oz Asahi or Sapporo beers for $5. A great alternative to... More

So this is one of my son's favorite places for sushi. I really wanted to be impressed by it. Unfortunately the menu is very limited if you're not really a fan of sushi. My sister and I ordered the beef and vegetables with rice (not really any choices other than white). The beef was exceptionally tender and the vegetables were... More

Have been here many times. Great neighborhood restaurant. Was reluctant to review because I wouldn't want it to be too crowded. A good variety of sushi and nicely balance luncheon and dinner dishes.

Although I liked this sushi, it was very pricey for what it is. I didn't thoroughly enjoy it, and for the price and reviews I would have expected to. I know it's in SF and sushi costs a lot but still. If you don't care about money then head here.

Stan took care of us and arranged off the menu requests with a smile. Melt in your mouth salmon and tempura.

Extremely good sushi at an extremely relaxed place. Who ever heard of foie gras and scallop sushi? It was one of the most memorable pieces of sushi I have ever had. Good rolls. Hamachi Kama that could feed a family. Asahi on tap. And an easy walk from Fishermans Wharf. The bill for two was under $100 and we ordered... More

This place was very good. I am usually not much of a fan but the wife so I agreed to go in for a quick Dragon Roll ( even though we just ate about an hour earlier)...was so good we topped it off with a spicy tuna roll. Very good

Stopped by the "old" neighborhood (where we lived for one year, one year ago) to dine with friends. Friendly owner; small place; not the world's best fish and the ambiance tends toward the down-at-heel.

And with a sushi happy hour to boot! What's not to like? The key is - just get away from all the restaurants (aka tourist traps) in the immediate Fisherman's Wharf area. Start going up the hills into the neighborhoods and find the real places where the locals eat. Better food, better atmosphere, better prices. Following my advice ended up... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
