    Pristine, omakase-style sushi isn't the easiest thing to find in SF, but this spot delivers with beautifully presented, painstakingly sourced fish served in the traditional style. Read more

    Pristine omakase is the name of the game at this tiny sushi spot, which boasts the talents of longtime local great Masaki Sasaki. Expect a Japanese-style sushi experience at Japanese-style prices.

    Beautifully presented in classic Edomae style, sushi at Maruya is incredibly fresh, brushed with a modest amount of soy sauce, and offered as a chef’s choice tasting menu or a la carte. Read more

    Real authentic sushi place. I'm Japanese and felt at home. Great service and perfect sushi! Not all tables are reservable through OpenTable. Call the restaurant for more options.

    The omakase here is amazing. Mix of sushi, soup, salad, hot food and dessert, it's really authentic. Service is attentive and professional. Sushi is really fresh and tasty. Just the way it should be.

    Last Fall, chef Masaki Sasaki opened Maruya in The Mission with limited seating and a traditional sushi menu upon which fish is only available according to seasonality. Read more

    Officially my fave sushi joint in SF. Beats out Yasuda and rivals Nakazawa and Sasabune in NYC, omakase-speaking. Get the Masa Hide Omakase and indulge.

    Sit at the bar and do the sushi/sashimi Omakase. I think it now serves the best sushi in town. Also, the oyster stout is nice!

    I came here the week they opened and they had their original sushi chefs. With those chefs this place was magic. I went recently & w/ the new chefs, the ambiance is different and quality has waned.

    The nigiri was definitely the highlight of the $85 omakase, so it seems like the $40 sushi course might be a better deal. You can't go wrong either way though.

    Omakase was great w fresh fish. It was the closest meal I've had to eating in Japan. felt traditional and very good. Green tea tiramisu was good but almost savory- tasted like cream cheese + matcha

    Been here 5+ times
    Do yourself a favor, sit at the bar and let them drive. The food is top notch and they offer a proper, elevated sushi experience I've yet to find anywhere else in San Francisco.

    the maruya omakase comes with hot dishes, soup, sashimi, and nigiri. good variety if that's what you're looking for. this place is also run by japanese hosts, waiters, and chefs!

    It's small and pricey, as these places tend to be, but it's an elegant respite from the sometimes noisy local restaurant scene. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Incredible. Taste, presentation, service and attention to detail. Sit at the bar for sure and appreciate how pure this place is!

    My first sushi restaurant in SF, so I can't judge but having had sushi in Asia I must say Maruya is very very good, but quite forgettable. Slow service.

    The chef preorders the fish from the Tsukiji market in Tokyo. It's like I'm in Japan again with a hot towel and tea.

    Get the Masa's corse. At the end ask for a toro nigiri to end the night. Bliss.

    Came here for Valentine's Day and a majority of the omakase focused on micro bite appetizers where were mostly boring. Fish that proceeded it was just ok.

    For the same price, I would venture out to other places that offer way better omasake experiences.
