Like Kobe beef? The famous Japanese beef is out-shined by Wagyu, and the A5 grade (think USDA Prime) is the best. It's not cheap. Nothing in SF is cheap, and they have a city tax added, as well. For a special treat, try some A5...More

A small establishment... but service excellent...and the steak I ordered was cooked to perfection...flavorful....delicious....and perfectly marinated. A bone-in rib eye. Best steak I've EVER had in my entire life...and I consider myself a gourmet connoisseur of food and wine.

One of the few places that you can get legitimate Wagyu steaks. I have been to Japan before and I can attest to this fact. Beyond this, the Chef then adds an amazing amount of flavor without overpowering the essence of the meat. The staff...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,

A stylish & modern take on the traditional steakhouse, blending the ambiance of a contemporary restaurant with that of a vibrant cocktail lounge. We serve the best, top quality steaks from around the world - US Certified Angus Beef and Australian 'Kobe' and the grade A5 100% Japanese Wagyu - highest grade of beef in the world. Our menu is also very accommodating with several non-red meat options and different sized portions available. Great for an outing with friends, a business dinner, or a romantic evening on the town- 5A5 caters to those looking for outstanding food & service complemented by a fun & upbeat dining experience. 5A5 - 5 senses / the A5 experience
