I've been going to ozumo for years, they have never let me down. Besides being a sexy local hangout, the food here is a few levels above all others. If you know sushi rice and soy sauce this is the only place to go!

My son and I were there for dinner while visiting the city. The sushi was very good but my soft shell crab there was just 'fine.' A little soggy and not that interesting. When we left, the bar was definitely hopping. There is both a dining area near the bar and a quieter area further back in the restaurant-better for... More

Thought out presentation of food, which was very fresh and delicious. It's a little pricey but that should be expected of a Japanese restaurant in SF. Located in Embarcadero, it's easy to find. Service was very attentive and fast.

Everything great, the food, the service, the place. Top 3 japanese restaurants ever visit. I offered a beer to the chef and got a great and different desert.

Incredible selection of fresh fish, appetizers, tasty sake, beautiful view of bridge. There's nothing I didn't like, except not being able to stuff myself blind with their amazing food. Can't rave enough about it and, sushi is my favorite food, so I seek it out wherever I go.

Having had sushi in top restaurants in Tokyo and London, this was by far the best. Exceptionally fresh and very well prepared. Coming from Europe excellent value given the quality. Only criticism was slightly frosty girl on the front desk but otherwise awesome

We recently visited San Francisco and brought our daughter to Ozumo for her 23rd birthday. They made our evening very special...from the beautiful table with a view of the bay to the incredible food and service. I have never written a review before until now, the experience at Ozumo was so deserving I had to share. They had impeccable service... More

We were here twice (once during happy hour and once for supper) and I recommend that if you are going to go make sure it is during happy hour. The happy hour menu is a great deal for both food and beverages and try the calamari if you can.

This was a really excellent sushi and Japanese restaurant. Great view of the bay bridge. Service was helpful and knowledgeable. A little pricey but worth it. Sushi rolls were great and looked like works of art.

I sat at the sushi bar. Delightful servers with good recommendations. The sushi chef was great very friendly and I just let him serve me his choice. This was an excellent idea and I had a great selection of sashimi, nigri, and rolls. Wine very nice but over priced.
