Sushi for the rest of us. – If you're not into the "scene"-type of sushi restaurants (you know which ones I'm talking about!), Amberjack should be at the top of your list. The staff is super-friendly and remember me every time I visit, which is at least once a month. I like that they have both good sushi and good noodle dishes so I can mix 'n' match them for a wide variety of meals. Seems like the Japanese version of comfort foods, epecially in the winter when I might want something hot to eat. The ambiance is very "neighborhood" and friendly -- a very comfortable place to go.
An airy Noe Valley sushi joint serving familiar Japanese fare. – In Short
A glass façade invites light into a pastel-colored interior lined with framed artwork. The friendly staff serves maki, nigiri and a full Japanese lunch and dinner menu to a neighborhood clientele seated at small tables or the sushi bar. The chef says his loyal patrons "know what to expect" -- a predictable but dependable Japanese menu, including rolls like Golden Dragon Maki and entrees such as Chilean Seabass Misoyaki.
Reliably excellent – I go to Amberjack at least once a month or so, and I've never had a bad meal. The fish is always fresh, and the miso-marinated butterfish is a standout dish that I start missing when I haven't had it in a while. Other dishes, such as udon, are consistently good also. It's hardly ever crowded, making it a sure bet for a good neighborhood dinner.
Sushi in Noe – I've been here a couple of times and both times have been good experiences. The restaurant is small but not cramped. Amberjack is not a scene. It's a good place for good sushi with a nice atmosphere. The fish seems to be always fresh. The staff is very attentive.
Amberjack is Amazing! – I have eaten sushi a number of times during my life and Amberjack is one of the best, if not the best I have ever had! I eat there a few times a month since moving to the area and it has remained consistently great each and every time! The Chirashi is what I recommend and if you have room for dessert, you have to try the Green Tea Cheesecake!..it's hella good! The waitresses are very sweet and the service is fantastic. Amberjack is a hidden gem!
highly recommended – Friendly chef picked food for us, it came out sashimi are fresh (especially the Uni) and lots of different kinds, and lots of special starters never see it outside. They have Ginger Ice Cream as dessert.
