In a city where restaurants come and go, Ebisu has held its ground in the Sunset for 30 years. Take a seat at the sushi bar for a front row view. The rolls are unique, popular & great to share.

Nigiri specials are great, rolls just ok – This place has great fresh nigiri specials. The fish is fresh and tasty. Last time I tried the kobe beef nigiri and it was excellent. If you sit at the bar the sushi chef will let you know what is freshest. The rolls aren't anything special and I can't speak for the entrees or appetizers since I've never tried them. Service is pretty good. It gets crowded so it's best to go during off-peak hours.

Extremely Overrated – The entrees had a subpar quality and were too pricey. The sashimi and the sushi was not very fresh, a cardinal sin if you specialize in Japanese cuisine. The tuna sashimi looked like it had been left out because it looked really pale and tasted very gamey. I don't mind paying high prices for good food but this was just a horrible experience. The staff though was very accomodating despite the throngs of people lining up to get a table. But there are other way way better Japanese restaurants out there with cheaper prices.

Great Sushi! – Ebisu is a great little sushi place in the inner sunset. They have quieter back area where guests take off their shoes and eat at traditional low tables while sitting on cushions. I really enjoyed the experience and the sushi, though guests do pay more for the high quality meal.

sushi good! – We went last night and were so happy. The fish is so fresh and clean tasting. We ate too much. We drank too much. Service was perfectly timed and very friendly, always important to us - Why sit at the bar if the chefs don't interact with you? These guys were perfect! Thanks for a sushi good time.

Voted #1 – I can see why Ebisu was rated #1. I've been there a couple times now. The place is always packed, but the wait isn't very long. Service can be a little slow because it's busy, but it's always friendly. My favorite is the salmon sashimi and unfiltered sake!

Excellent Sushi!! – We went early, and sat at the sushi bar, so we beat the crowds. The sushi was excellent, with the right amount of rice. Excellent toro and aji - aji so good I wanted a second order. Spicy tuna roll is just spicy enough. Sushi chefs were excellent - very busy, but willing to chat. We'll go back each time we visit the city.

Probably the best sushi in town! – We've been comming here for years..the food is excellent, A+, everything from imaginative rolls to sashimi; they do get Very crowded and there're no reservations, so come early, around 5:30 for a good spot at the sushi bar..talk to the chef, and enjoy! Yes, this place is a bit pricey, and you can easily leave $45-70 for a dinner for two (with drinks), but it's WORTH it!

Average Sushi – The service was excellent, but then again, my sig. other's mom is personal friends with the owner...so we got the works. The sushi is average - I've had better. If I had paid for the sushi, I'd be pissed because for what you get, it's over-priced. Skip Ebisu.

Expensive, Paper-Thin Nigiri Sushi – Slices of fish were cut so thin that you could almost see through them! The quality was generally OK but not great - ikura appeared old because the eggs were shrivelled. Ebisu's non-sushi items are generally not very good. Ebisu used to serve good sushi, but now it is below average (but still pricey) that I will not go there any more.

Oishiiii – O mi God ! I love the nigiri sushi. They're all fresh and hand made perfected by the cool and friendly sushi chef Suzuki san. The Hamachi, Toro, and Aji were among the best nigiri sushi i've ever had. Uh! the Roll #29 rocks! You better sit on the sushi bar, I bet u'll get the special treatment from Suzuki san.

The service was fast, the waitress were cheerful, the glass was never empty even for a minute. coz they're always filling it right away. Worth every bucks
