Perhaps we went to Koo on an off day. The food was pretty good, don't get me wrong, but it didn't warrant the high praise I've heard about this place. The fish was all fresh and of good quality. The rice, however, was horrible and took away from the enjoyment of eating sushi. The fried shrimp heads were burnt and the worst I've had.
Spoonfuls of Happiness dish - sake, uni and ankimo? Yes, please!

While there is good sushi to be had in the Sunset, Koo has a little something extra to set it apart: the spoonful of happiness...
Start with uni, add quail egg and tobiko, take ponzu & ankimo wrapped with whitefish, add a hint of truffle-oil, washed down with a shot of chilled Sake.
If your epicurean endorphins aren't singing by now, try the bamboo tower, built with crystal sesame-ponzu, mizuna green with fresh white fish, scallop and shrimp.
Casual, chic decor and subdued atmosphere. It's not a scene, people come here to eat.

Found Koo nearly four years ago, and it is still by far my favorite sushi place in the city. Better than Ino in my opinion even if it's less traditional. They can be traditional if they choose to (the 3 chefs are all experienced and trained from Japan) but their menu has a wide array of choices that accommodates the American palate, too (choices of rolls are offered).
Their sushi is all top notch and from the best markets in the bay area. The owner (wife) also hand-bakes the desserts herself - they're all super delicious and not too sweet.
Perfect for a foodie or a date!
