Insiders Tip: After 5:00 PM the parking lot behind Sushi Ran is free. You enter off of Pine St. just uphill from Caledonia. Pine St. there is one-way and comes down the hill towards Bridgeway so you’ll have to go around the block via Johnson or Turney from Bridgeway to get there.
Insiders Tip: If their parking lot is full, check out our special page on Parking Near Caledonia St. Without Getting a Ticket. It explains how to avoid the no-parking zones that catch some visitors by surprise.
Sushi Ran is a top Bay Area restaurant. This super-popular sushi place, just north of downtown Sausalito, draws a faithful clientele of regular customers from San Francisco and from points north. Some people drive a long ways to get here, but it’s also only five blocks from the Sausalito Ferry pier. They have patio seating in nice weather. The Sushi Ran bar across the walkway from the main seating area has a more narrow food selection than the main dining room, but on crowded nights it’s also easier to get a table there.
Situated one block away from the Bay and three blocks away from downtown Sausalito, Sushi Ran is located in an area that caters to local residents. It doesn’t have the big waterfront views of the downtown destinations, but it does have a reputation among foodies that draws a big regional audience. Service has been excellent on my visits.
I strongly recommend getting reservations if you’re going to Sushi Ran. During dinner and sometimes at lunch you can have a long wait if you just decide to drop by.
