You'll find a long menu with plenty of options. Everything is simply delicious. One of the best (if not the best) japanese restaurants I know.

Met a couple of friends here for dinner prior to a theater visit. While the outside is unassuming, the interior is very nicely decorated with a quiet laid-back feel to it (including the gluten-free soy sauce). We sat at the back and had a nice view of the Bay Bridge lit up for the evening. We sampled widely from vegetarian... More

Fabulous, friendly service, relaxed atmosphere. Good for a classy, upscale date or a laid-back, jeans & button-down shirt, weekend happy hour. Food, however, was meh. Considering how high the prices are, I expected better.

I actually ate here for both lunch and dinner on the same day while in San Fran this week (that is a story for another day). Lunch was busy and service was slow but the food experience was stellar. Dinner was even better with great service, lots of sake - great selection - and a chance to try many of... More

We have lived in the SF Bay Area for over 40 years and have dined in some mighty fine restaurants. We recently took a friend from the midwest to Ozumo to have fine sushi, and this is probably the best we have had. We splurged on $100 bottle of sake suggested by the waiter and sampled the calamari and tuna... More

Ozumo delivers in the sushi and sake department. Particularly for those who appreciate quality. The choices of fish and tastes of garnishes melt together in one's mouth in a symphony of satisfaction. Every meal is delightfully presented in the elegant simplicity that japanese fare is known for. Note that Saturday nights can mean a long wait unless one has a... More

I've been dining at Ozumo's for over 5+ years now and have never been disappointed. The food, ambience and staff are all top notch. When out with a group of friends, I particularly like dining inside their bar, which has a lounge feel to it. They have a great selection of sake for all you sake lovers. Their food menu... More

My fiance and I had short rib and scallop dishes - they were absolutely incredible. The staff were very polite and welcoming, we were even given free sushi whilst we decided what to order! I also had a lychee spritzer to drink, really tasty. Though a little more pricey than some of the other 'chain' restaurants in San Francisco, it's... More

The fish was amazingly fresh and creatively assembled. Our server was spot on with his recommendations. We are at the sushi bar which was very comfortable. Everything we had was delicious, including their version of a martini made with shiso and jalapeños.
