I ate here with a large group (25) on June 30. Group dinners are often mediocre but this was great. We had two seafood appetizers, the one with ginger was exceptionally good. The salmon I ordered was delicious and the chocolate dessert creamy and just the right touch. The Pomerol wine we chose was also great. The staff were fun loving and efficient. It was a very good evening and terrific meal. I would definitely go there again when I am in SF.

Outstanding and surprise experience. I don't even like steak a great deal but this experience has ruined me for any other steak in the future. I also liked the ambiance a great deal: sufficiently intimate to have a private conversation and comfortable as well.

We have just enjoyed a fantastic Wagyu experience at the 5A5.

The steak was so tender it melts in your mouth and bursts with flavour, you certainly did not need the awesome steak knifes provided!

The ambience was exceptional and it was truly an evening to savour and remember

They literally treated us like second class citizens because we where from New York and they would not be getting repeat business. First the Lobster Tempura took 30 minutes to get to the table. It was delicious no big deal. Then the steaks come out, my wife who asked for the demi on the side got it on the steak. Ten minutes later they bring her a new one. That steak is cooked wrong, I cut into my steak and it too is cooked wrong. They take all the sides and steaks back. We wait another 25 minutes for new steaks. My new steak was cooked right but was short on the demi and fodue that had been on the previous steak. They did try and cover it up with the herb salad there was also a few pieces of tendon still on the steak. Then to make it up to us the waitress pushed deserts on us that we didnt even want. Those deserts took 30 minutes to get to the table. We where at 5a5 for 3 hours and 20 minutes. That's one course every hour. They comped us one app and the deserts. A total of $50 for 3 hours of my life I will never get back. I wrote an email to the establishment and never heard back absolutely no follow through. PS they would have treated us better if we where not from out of town is what the waitress said to us.

The wagyu steak is hands down the best I ever had. Better than Alexander's steakhouse in SF. Also cheaper. The Wagyu is served with different flavor cook very well, unlike alexander just a single piece and eat with salt....

This is where you drop 500 on a meal and feel like it's worth it. won't disappoint.
