While in The Bay Area on vacation, Ozumo was recommended by a local. It was Happy Hour on Friday when I visited and sat at the Sushi Bar. The food was amazing and the wine selection was good. I tried two kinds of the specialty sushi rolls and was not disappointed. The DJ was playing a nice mix of music... More

We recently attended a gathering of friends in their private room. The service was slow, and only had one server actually responsible for 25 people. Not really enough. Waited too long to get drink orders. Dinner was delicious, BUT our assigned server never came back for additional drink orders. Had to go out to their main bar and get a... More

Where else but in up and coming Oakland would have find a DJ playing music in a sushi restaurant. Place is lively but not so expensive as to be out of reach of families with older kids. The rolls are excellent, well-prepared, great taste. Salads standout especially the beet salad which is large enough to share. Wine is not so... More

A business dinner here impressed me with the food but surprised and disappointed with slow service. Perhaps that was a short staffed night so I'd try it again.

Sushi is fine. Cooked food is very good. Appetizer with tuna and avocado is excellent. Sake selection is very good. Bar is busy and hip. Ambiance in dining area is calm and lovely. Eating available at grill bar can be a nice diversion if you want entertainment/something to talk about just in case; you will watch the chefs grill, prep,... More

We went out to lunch today with from friends from my wife's work. They had suggested the restaurant and what an excellent choice. We all had the salmon at our friend's suggestion. Ozumo has a secret sauce that makes it very special. It is only available at lunch, I am told. They have a wide selection of food and the... More

Food is fresh, service great. Ideal place for a business lunch. Lively but no too loud to talk. Sushi is fresh. Nice pots of interesting teas.

Late night dinner with 10 colleagues We were seated in a private room. Some ordered individual entrees like the brush rice and salmon, chicken curry. Few of us ordered platters of sushi. Split at least 2 bottles of wine with several ordering beer and green tea. The 2 servers brought out dishes in a timely manner. Sushi presentation was impeccable.... More

We had dinner tonight in Oakland at Ozumo. The food was fabulous and varied. DH ordered short ribs with an amazing sauce/gravy. He put soy on his dish of rice and I nearly wept. We shared a range of small plates, such as the abalone, the spicy scallop (not spicy, actually, if you like heat in your food), fried chicken... More

www.ozumooakland.com. This restaurant is in the business section of Oakland, a nicer part of town, about 10 minutes’ drive from the Berkley University campus. We met our family there for dinner based on their high recommendations. This is a sushi fusion restaurant / Bar in a beautiful setting with a DJ. If you don’t like the loud music, the back... More
