The best whisky selection in West US for sure! Got to taste Lonach 43!!! Although to taste Lonach 43 cost $70 (it was not listed on the menu) but it was worth every penny!

I think it's good to eat first and go to Nihon Whisky Lounge.

Great atmosphere, two levels, awesome whiskey display and certain yummy items, but the maki were lackluster and the service was slow.

Compared to your other options in SF, Nihon has one of the better whiskey selections but pricing is outrageous... especially if you plan on drinking popular Japanese whiskeys or buying a bottle -- highly recommend googling prices and don't trust the bartenders. Food, both sashimi and grilled foods, are only ok.

Interesting menu, not your typical dishes, enjoyed most of them. Huge selection of whiskies and cocktails.. fun bar to hang out at and a quieter loft like space above. Enjoyed our evening, went with a groupon and saved some $$.

What a delightful, and busy place to have a drink and an light dinner snack this was....We were visiting relatives in the area, and they only had an hour to spend chatting. We met here, and sat in the first floor bar/lounge area. The interior decoration is really different and pleasant (stone floor under your feet). ALthough we are not whiskey fans, it is an enormous selection available! We did have some nice drinks and several plates of small snacks they prepare. Really good! And, they have 1/2 at happy hour - a good thing!
