Lunch special chirashi. Excellent.
Amazing Omakase! The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating and let us taste sake before choosing one. Food was delicious. A bit on the pricey side but great for a date night!
Quick service and very fresh seafood
Great restaurant with solid food and attentive service. Will certainly be back!
Excellent all around!
Gintei has a always been a favorite of mine in the area! They always have a great selection of fish from Japan served in a very traditional setting and atmosphere. The service was impeccable.
I tried other sushi restaurants last few weeks. No one is as good as Gintei. Gintei always have BEST flavor and service with smile. I do not think I can go any other place.
Omakase was great!
The fish is always fresh and service is always great!!
Such a hidden gem in the area. Amazing service, fresh selection of sushi shipped form Toyosu fish market. Highly recommend!
First time and had a very enjoyable experience. The food was delicious...particularly the omakase deluxe, pork belly, and ice cream! All the fish is fresh and tasty and the uni and cooked/grilled bites are good, too.
It's a bit pricey so not an everyday place for our budget, but would definitely come back for occasions when we want a more upscale, higher quality sushi meal!
Authentic and refined Japanese food just a few minutes away from SFO. Attentive and cordial service, and reasonable prices for San Francisco area. Most of the customers were locals and Asians, which says a lot. We had a late flight to catch and were looking for good food not far from the airport. We were quite pleased!
Absolutely amazing sushi! Best I had in a very long time. I enjoyed every bite of it. We liked it so much we went twice during our short trip to San Francisco.
My favorite sushi on Peninsula / fresh, excellently prepared and presented, focus is on the food/drink and your company.
Celebrated a birthday and the food was delicious!
Superb all around, however, pricey. The staff are warm and efficient, the fish fresh and unique and the saki offerings excellent.
As close to Tokyo, this side of the pacific.
We love this restaurant in town! Fresh fish assortment! Must try Omakase plate ! Highly recommend
My son and I love sushi and wanted to try someplace new. Gintei was excellent. We are very particular and everything we ordered was fresh and of high quality. It’s pricey but worth it!
The Bruno roll is amazing ! Friendly staff and very attentive service plus amazing sushi - truly a hidden gem !
Sushi is made to perfection. Warm dishes are delicious. Good airflow as they keep the front door and back door open. Service can be disjointed at times but you never feel forgotten!
We are glad they are open and doing well. The speciality sushi is always good.
New favorite sushi in the Bay Area
Great Japanese foods and drinks, affordable price for us. It was very excited party with colleagues!
I discovered this gem on OpenTable, and drove down from SF on a weekday to try it. Absolutely delicious, fresh sushi, and wonderful service. Would go again in a heartbeat. I had the deluxe Omakase, 10 pieces of chef’s choice nigiri + an appetizer and miso soup. I was pretty hungry so added a spicy tuna/scallop roll, also great
The food was absolutely incredible. The service was also fantastic and the server was so nice.
Very disappointing. They got our order wrong. Many missing items. Did not state prices upfront which made for a surprise bill. $56 for 4 pieces of uni is really high even at elite restaurants. Service extremely poor. Two servers in the entire restaurant. Had to request items that were not initially served, like water (which we requested initially) and soy. We paid way too much for decent but not spectacular food. Never again.
We had a great meal. Everything was excellent and the service was very good. We plan to return.
We ordered the Sushi deluxe omakase for each of us. $70 includes miso soup, appetizer, and 10 pc nigiri. We also ordered A5 miyasaki wagyu nigiri on the side. Great quality, good value. Excellent and very attentive service. Highly recommend.
Gintei has very good and fresh ingredients. We always enjoyed our meals here. I do have two recommendations although this may only apply to us and not other diners:
1) We love the truffle ikura nigiri and usually get them when we dine here - however the rice was soaked with the marinate sauce so it was extremely salty - maybe drain better before placing over the rice? Also, we noticed that the taste is different this time - the pungent truffle smell was clearly absent.
2) We tried the salmon skin roll - while it was crunchy and flavorful with good texture, the skin was diced up to very small chunks but I think this reduced the salmon fragrance after it was fried.
Amazing food. But had to ask for water 6 times. It’s only water and it wasn’t busy at all so I’m not sure why it took 10-15 minutes to get water.
Amazing sushi. I come here often for lunch but dinner is next level. You would pay twice as much in San Francisco
Always a wonderful experience there, from the chef owner to the servers everybody is top-notch service with a smile, Fresh fish great Omakase! Cheers
This is as close it gets to Japan
Authentic Sushi bar!
The pork belly was melt in the mouth, not greasy - a must order! The sushi rolls are fresh and delicately made. The ice cream trio was a nice finish - matcha, black sesame and salted caramel.
Omakaze $70 - way below expectations
Delicious sushi / sashimi and fabulous cooked food. Stunning choices in Japanese fish. Great service. Beautiful decor and dishes. Looking forward to our return!
Great food and quick service to order and deliver main dishes. Had to wait 17 minutes between finishing most mains and ordering final dishes, and being presented with the check.
I'll probably regret writing this as the restaurant is so awesome, and I don't want it to become overrun.
