I've been to many Japanese/sushi restaurants in California. Too many to count. Akane in my honest opinion is #1 in the Bay area, and I still have my favorite restaurant that I go to because of memories and such, but Akane is right there at the top with it. I recommend anyone to pay a visit and figure out what I mean for yourself. I hope your visit is as great as mine was.

Wonderful sushi. They have real, fresh wasabi. Delicious. We usually have an assortment of food and have never been disappointed. The only time was when we had to wait an hour for a table... no more, we only come here with a reservation from now on.We love it! Stay away it is hard enough to get a table as it is.

My favorite under-the-radar Japanese place. It isn't as crowded and busy as other Japanese places, especially those in the more popular downtown areas. It's Los Altos, after all, the city that always sleeps. You may have to wait on occasion, but typically it hasn't been much of a problem for me. Akane used to be Japanese-owned, but I don't know if it is anymore. It still retains its simple, homey feel, capped by the sushi bar that is festooned with square, bamboo sake cups. The service is good, but most (if not all) of the servers are not Japanese. They're generally very good about accommodating your preferences, and are definitely nice enough. But I wouldn't say service is "excellent". The sushi is great, because the fish is always fresh. The cooked dishes are good as well, and I recommend trying some of the small appetizers or side dishes.

My family and I have been going here for years and Francis the owner and her employees always give excellent customer service along with great food. My favorites dishes are: Nabeyaki Udon, fresh sushi, hamachi kama and for cold dishes we like the zaru soba.Parking is easy but waits can be longer on Fridays and Saturdays, so reservations are a good idea.

Freshest sushi in the Bay area. Maguro and Sake are amazing here, nice colors and extremely fresh. Their Hamachi is also delicious and the rice and fish temperatures are on point.The tempura ice cream is the way to go to finish things off! :)

Probably the worst Japanese restaurant I've ever tried in the Bay Area. Expensive and so-so taste. Ordered a shabu hot pot and it was literally a few thin pieces of beef and cabbage in hot water costing nearly 20 dollars. Wife's order of udon wasn't with much flavor either. Definitely wouldn't recommend to anyone crave for authentic Japanese food.

It’s great going to Akane, a great place for family or business. We love to sit at the Sushi bar and talk with the Chefs. The fish is always fresh. They have a variety of rolls and fish! We have been coming here since about 92, 93.

Tip: Authentic sushi-ya located in the sleepy town of Los Altos. Order from a broad assortment of Nigiri (check the white board special) as well as cooked dishes, such as chawanmushi or Udon. For lunch, the Chirashi ($24) is a solid choice.

Have been here many times over the years and liked some of the dishes, such as Akane II rolls, tombo tataki, hamachi mama. However, I think over all it has not improved over time, rather it has gone backwards a few steps.

FRANCIS the owner is extremely RUDE! It was my Mother's 80th birthday. I had been patronizing Akane for many years. I asked Francis if I could make a reservation for a party of 10. FRANCIS responded "NO" we only accept reservations for a maximum of 5. I said how about two tables of 5 then? FRANCIS responded "NO". I then said how about we make the reservation for when you first open and the restaurant is not crowded? FRANCIS again responded "NO". My guess is that if my name was "Steve Young" or "Harris Barton" or anyone else on her "A" List of patrons, the response would have been different. In these trying times of "Covid 19" I would prefer to support the Businesses that truly deserve our support.

I really like the sushi here. The fish is always fresh. The best place is to sit at the sushi bar.The Japanese entrees are ok. I don't think it is that spectacular. So if you don't want to have sushi, this is not the place to go cuz it can be pretty expensive.Service is a hit or miss. If they are busy, then they really very slow. I don't think they are capable of handle full house. So if there are people waiting outside, my suggestion is to move to other place.

Busy, Chic place. The sushi rice is perfect, glistening little pearly nibbles of translucent rice. Special order dragon roll was stuffed with real crab. Don't let the waiter take your plate away too soon! Sushi meat was very fresh and delectable. It would be very easy to overeat here. Luckily, the pricing helps restrict bulging waists. Another place worth revisiting!
