Great "Fancy" Japanese Option in SF!

We enjoyed our food a lot at Ozumo. We were pleasently surprised with the service and quality of food. We are typically pretty picky about sushi and like Ozumo because there are a lot of non-sushi options on the menu too!

With all the Japanese chefs around SF you would think it wouldn't be this hard to prepare authentic Japanese food. I hate when restaurants try to be all things to all people. You don't mix sushi with robata-yaki with tempura. Sorry. it doesn't work.

My wife and I arrived an hour early for our reservations and sat in the bar area until our table was ready. They were very timely with our service and friendly in the bar area. Unfortunately, when we were sat, we felt like we were involved in an intimate chess game with the server as to which expensive item on... More

I've eaten in a lot of Japanese restaurants and sushi bars, including a short visit to Japan. I live in Austin, Texas and we have some of the best there. This place is right up there on the short list. I sat at the sushi bar. I asked my sushi chef to make me some sashimi and a roll. He... More

Ate here with friends as part of our trip to SF. The service was excellent and the food was soooo good. It's a little more pricey compared to some sushi places but it's totally worth it.

Came here for a team dinner and couldn't have been happier. The food was delicate and tasty, and exceptionally well presented and the ambiance was fantastic..buzzing but not too loud. What really made the even better was our server however. If you are lucky enough to get Jen at your table then you know tor are going to have a... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
