To be honest, hotel restaurants can really be a hit or a miss -- generally they are passable. Very rarely are they of the quality of Anzu. The food at this establishment is beyond delicious, and everything is so fresh. I had the best steak fillet I have ever had in my life -- it was so tender that I... More

A group of 4 business colleagues and I spent the evening of the NCAA men's basketball finals at ANZU. Since the game was on, we asked for and were granted seating at a large round table in front of the screen. As it was a Monday, the place was lightly populated, so we basically had our own waiter. We tried... More

We travel a lot to S. F. and this restaurant was a great surprise with really first rate food and service. We went there on our last evening and, while it was full, the service was very good. There is also a very nice selection of wine and drinks and the decor is excellent. I had the Kobe Beef burger... More

The Asian cuisine is executed well with a modern flair. My visit at lunch time found the restaurant nearly empty, however, it permitted very attentive service from the staff, which made for a nice treat. The restaurant is a modern Asian decor that delivers a tranquil atmosphere. The location is on the upper level of the entry hallway can be... More

I love Anzu at Nikko Hotel in San Francisco. I don't usually eat at hotel restaurants because I usually find them overpriced and underwhelming. However, Anzu at Hotel Nikko is very different. They serve fusion Japanese cuisine and everything is super fresh and the buffets are very good value for the price. They have regular breakfast buffets for hotel guests... More

I love this restaurant, inside the Nikko Hotel, for their amazing breakfast buffet. In addition to traditional American options, they also offer a full range of Japanese options. There are literally dozens of choices and everything is very well prepared. Service is top notch.

The buffet breakfast was awesome. For the price you had a fantastic variety of foods to choose. The pancakes were the best we have had at any restaurant.

Smartly decorated, inventive menu and a very nice environment. The $42 prefix referred to as the "tasting menu" is an excellent value with 3 courses.

The room is contemporary, and nicely decorated, however the banquet seating is awkward, so opt for a table with chairs. We felt, mistakenly, that a Japanese hotel would serve some tasty Sushi; the menu sounded wonderful, but the food was disappointing. Our "fusion" appetizers were the best part of our meal. My rolls were dry and nearly tasteless, so I... More
