SF Weekly's Description

At Michelin-starred Ame, ultrafresh, Japanese-influenced seafood preparations like tempura poke with ogo seaweed and cuttlefish noodles tossed with sea urchin share the menu with stylish yet universally pleasing entrées such as duck breast with mushroom-foie gras bread pudding and crispy roast suckling pig with potato purée. Ame's specialties are the
fusion-frenzied dishes, such as the signature sake-marinated black cod in shiso broth. A tapestry of dark and light woods, the elegant space recalls the hotel in which Ame resides more than the neighborhood outside or the food it serves. Cocktails are fabulous, especially the Hirotini, which features cucumber-infused vodka.

    It's Sashimi Fusion with Italian. They call it New American cuisine. They change their menu every three months. They have great sashimi dishes, but it’s not sushi. They do a lot of sauces with sashimi and it’s the best I’ve ever had in my life. It’s Italian, too, and they have a great wine selection. I recommend the soft shell crab dish with truffle sauce if they have it. It’s so amazing.

    I would definitely go back to Ame. Their tasting menu with wine pairings is a little pricey but well worth it.

    The Hirotini is clean and crisp. Yummy complimentary snacks as well as selections off the restaurant menu. -Preeti Mistry, Top Chef

    Hiro Sone and Lissa Doumani have crafted one of the most underrated East/West dining experiences in town. The space is a looker too. [Eater 38 Member]

  • Mix and match items from both the hot kitchen and the sashimi bar and it’s worth checking out the daily crudo special. - Inspector

    If you're vegan, you can order steamed or grilled vegetables and they'll make them for you
