I was super excited to finally get a Soichi reservation. You need to make sure to get a reservation right at noon on the first of the month. We had the full omakase and we also enjoyed a bottle of sake with our dinner. Everything was amazing. The sashimi plate was edible art. It was great sitting at the sushi bar watching everything being made. Incredible!
We had the most wonderful time at Soichi. We shared the Omakase and ordered a salmon roll on the side. Everything was fresh and delicious, and the dining experience was something we will never forget. We wish it was easier to get another reservation, we will have to try again next month! If you are looking for next level sushi at a reasonable price with great service, Soichi is the place to go.
Hands down best sushi I've had. The restaurant only has 3 tables inside plus bar seats. Feels very intimate. Great for date nights or special occasions.
(Apr 2022) Fantastic experience! Best Omakase and Nigiri Sushi I have tried by far! I happened to check the Michelin guide on Wednesday and found this Soichi Sushi being a 1-star in San Diego. Then on Thursday afternoon I saw an available slot for one person that night and took it immediately. It turned out to be a sushi bar seat right in front of a younger chef and I watched his performance all night. I think the nigiri sushi was the best. The fishes were super fresh. And the course consisted of 12 pieces to show variations. Also the raw shrimp in the sashimi was impressive.
Food was great. We could only get table reservations, so be warned, your nigiri will be sitting and come only when its ready for the whole table, in multiples, rather than one at a time like typical omakase. Your server will still explain each piece and dish, but it'd definitely nicer being at the bar. I've been told the servers here use too much perfume, and it's true, which doesn't make sense when diners are eating something as delicate as sushi. Sashimi plate felt a little lacking. The ice cream comes out rock solid at the end, so be prepared to wait a bit for your spoon to be able to push through. Overall, though they have a star, I've had better, but it definitely does not mean this place is bad.
The Omakase experience was absolutely incredible. We did the full menu and loved it. The chefs and staff were amazing and made it a once in a lifetime experience. They joked and enjoyed themselves just as much as l my girlfriend and I did. A must do in San Diego.
INCREDIBLE, Delicious and so much fun! We did the Omakase and loved the food and experience! This was my second visit to Soichi. The first was in late 2020 before their Michelin star, I did a walk in. This time around, we had to make a resy 4 months in advance! Likely because they got recently got a Michelin star, but well deserved! This is my new fave Omakase restaurant and the sushi chefs including staff are so much fun and nice! We already made our resy to return!
Had a wonderful date night here for my anniversary. The location is a quaint and comfortable size with attentive staff. The service experience was amazing, and watching everything being prepared from the bar was mesmerizing. The talent and skill on display was impeccable. If you?re a sushi lover do yourself a favor and make a reservation!
