We love going to sushi boat restaurants and wanted to try this one out. It was OK - not great - but just OK. The fish just didn't seem as fresh as other sushi boat places we have been. The people that work there weren't very friendly. I won't be back.

We waited in a loooong line on Christmas day for a bowl of soup that came highly recommended by our hotel concierge. Not much was open and I didn't want to believe her but she was right. She advised us that the sushi traveling on the boats may have made many rounds before being plucked for consumption and to avoid.... More

3 of us dined here , after being unable to get in some where else. What a great find food was fantastic. We ordered off the menu and also had sushi off the boat. Everything was really good. Disappointed to read that they are closing.

I was in SF for business on a December weekend and ate here for dinner twice. It's too bad this location is closing after over 30 years. The food is good and the value is good. You can order off the floating boats or you can order off a menu. They have regular seating, but I chose the sushi bar... More

I've been going to this restaurant when I go to the city for business for 30 years. The food is excellent and fresh. Sadly, they are retiring and closing for good at the end of December 2016. Get there for your meal while you can, you be glad and full for less than $25.

We have been going to the Sushi Boat for years and it is dependable. There is nothing to draw you here other than its Union Square location because the food and service are pretty average. That being said, you can get way below average without even trying so my average rating is "not bad". The bento meals are probably the... More

Value for money, quite good food. Serving was quite big for the Bento set which cost almost US$20. We ordered 3 dishes for 4 persons.

My wife and I were on our last day of our vacation in San Fran when we stumbled upon The Sushi Boat, after being unable to compromise on standard fare. We were pleasantly surprised with our choice. My wife had sushi - which was fantastic! - and I had a pho dish that was one of the best I've ever... More
