    Sebo is not your typical Japanese restaurant. Here you will find no California Rolls, Philadelphia Rolls or ramen. If you've seen Jiro Dreams of Sushi on Netflix, Sebo is that in America in real life.

    I had a uni ($6), Miso Soup ($4) and one of the Negishima ($12). The food was very flavorful, traditionally made and you get a very Japanese feel. I will definitely come back when I have the budget and try the Tasting Menu or the Sashimi combination.

    Fresh, seasonal, phenomenal fish sets this minimalist, modern sushi restaurant apart from its many Bay Area competitors. Don’t expect fancy rolls, or even many seafood alternatives – this is the place where sushi conossieurs drop boucou bucks on seafood in its pure, unadulterated form, washed down with an impressive selection of sakes.

    Nestled in a truly authentic San Francisco neighborhood, Hayes Valley, Sebo boasts some of the best sushi in the Bay Area. Having indulged in sushi all over Japan, Sebo is the best I have found stateside. However, be warned, if they do not get a fresh shipment of fish they do not open. Also, since they do not take reservations, and the space is small your best bet is to join the line before they open at six to guarantee a seat. Enjoy the magic of sushi preparation by sitting at the bar chatting with the chefs over a stellar bottle of sake. Enjoy!

    the only way to get the full Sebo experience is ordering the omakase at the sushi bar. Short of that, Sebo could be any sushi restaurant in SF.

    The ingredients fresh, service efficient, chefs skillful, and sake refreshing, we have the basics of a good dining experience at any decent sushi restaurant. This time, it happened at the sushi bar at Sebo.

    A local chef who emphasizes fair trade & organic food alerted me to Sebo. This is sushi at its best, simple & pure. Sebo has innovative dishes as well, but it prides itself on the purity and freshness of its fish & clean execution. Other reviewers are right in noting its pricey menu. If you prefer to watch your wallet here, come after already having had a late full lunch :)

    was here a while back and really enjoyed it. we shared mostly nigiri and maki sushi. the fish was extremely fresh. the server and sushi chefs were pleasant and helpful. all in all a good experience. haven't found too many sushi joints in SF that i'm excited about, but this is one of them.

    No doubt, Sebo has good fish. But, be prepared to pay steep prices. I'm a fan of Ino, Koo, & Sushi Ran, but I felt genuinely ripped off at Sebo - even tho yes, I admit, their sushi is all very good.

    9 pieces of sashimi will be $40. I left extremely hungry. If I were to come here again, I would highly advise to get the 6 course tasting menu for $80.
