Ozumo - San Francisco
WowThe sushi never fails to amaze. Fresh, Japanese-style portions. The fusion sushi is great as well - very inventive. The beer selection is wonderful, and Charlie, our server, could not have been better.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious sushiI loved the food at Ozumo. The sushi and rolls were just amazing -- anything with hamachi or tuna were my highlights. I would definitely return. Service was friendly, helpful and attentive. The restaurant is a little loud, but otherwise great.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMit was good but...I started off with sashimi. The sashimi arrived and it looked tiny. The cuts of the meat were smaller than what I expected. On the menu it stated that the sashimi consisted of 5 pieces of meat. I received 4 fairly small pieces. My wife asked me how much that was and when I told her $22 she just stared at me dumbfounded. It was good but not worth the price. However all of the rolls we ate were good. It was good but the overpriced undersized sashimi kept it from being great.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMi really enjoyed it! Greati really enjoyed it! Great food, and great service. Tried some new food items for me and all was great and our server Daniel Jun was fantastic. great energy and very helpful describing the menu to us. Thank You!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Dining ExperienceWe went to Ozumo's to hang out with friends after the Giants game (Pagan's walk-off inside the park hr!). This is a fantastic restaurant. Full feature bar in the front is available while you wait for your table or just waiting for your party to arrive. The wait staff is friendly, everything you would expect from an upscale restaurant.
The food is, in one word, wow. We ordered the Yamabuki (Uni Rissoto), Benijake (Sockeye Salmon), oysters, Bison and Tontoro (pork jowls). The Tontoro and Yamabuki had to be my favorite dishes of the evening...simply melts in your mouth. The other dishes were very good too, just these two in particular were that much better.
Absolutely wonderful dining experience.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMCool placeOzuma is a great choice for Japanese food and for a great scene!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMontrealer in San FranciscoIncredible experience. Nothing quite like it montreal. People told me SF has a good restaurant scene, I was skeptical this put my doubts to rest.
The waiter recommended a few of the daily specials, as well as the spicy tuna and another starter. His suggestions couldn't have been better (spicy tuna is a must have).
The sake menu is just crazy. More sake's on their list than calories in a big mac.
Was given a glass of wine after one spilled. Got 6 pieces of sashimi instead of 5.
Everything about ozumo went above and beyond.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOMEFood is amazing- rivals Nobu and Katsuya for sure!!
Amazing saki selections as well!!
The best way to spend our first night in San Francisco!!
Spectacular view!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSupreme Service and TasteCelebrating Mother's day at Ozumo turned out to be fantastic. My wife and I are not only vegetarian but gluten free as well. This seems a paramount challenge at most restaurants but not Ozumo. Not only did the waiter and chef go out of their way to ensure our dining delight but we were made to feel at home. Thank you all at Ozumo for helping cap off a wonderful Mothers day for my wife.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our "go to" sushiThis is our "go to" sushi restaurant with my importand client and partner, and we are never disappointed.

This last time we had an assortment of small plates and rolls. Everything was delicious. The only downside to the meal...the price. You definately get what you pay for, though.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food ExperienceWe had an amazing meal at Ozumo for 2 people that cost $300. It was money well spent because it was not just food, wine, sake and tea, it was an experience.
The experience flowed smoothly and professionally the entire evening and our server helped guide us through the extensive sashimi, sushi and beef menu. She was at our table when we needed her and away when when we didn't need her. She made suggestions and got to know our sashimi palate so that what she brought to the table perfectly matched our desires and was beautifully presented.
This was truly the most delicious and freshest fish I have ever eaten and even the soy sauce used to dip was extraordinary.

I usually eat and drink in the bar and am always impressed with every aspect of the experience. This time, I brought a group of friends and ate in the main dining area. Once again, blown away by both food and service. The server was very knowledgable and helped us pick appetizers and the perfect Sake from a huge selection. Ozumo continues to be my favorite eating and drinking spot no matter where I stay in San Francisco.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time toThis was my first time to Ozumo, and I enjoyed my meal. The waiter was very knowledgable and helpful. I told him what I typically liked, and his suggestions were spot on. The fish was very fresh, but it was a bit pricey. It was close to $180 for two of us, one drink each, and I had to order a bowl of rice at the end so I wouldn't leave hungry. Good for special occasion.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food - well done.Amazing food - well done.

Thank you again for another memorable food night!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur table overlooked the BayOur table overlooked the Bay Bridge which was beautifully lit with LED lights. The service was excellent. My son speaks Japanese, and he mentioned that the staff mispronounced the Japanese greetings as we came and left. On my own, I never would have known that.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional high end JapaneseOzumo is an exceptional, very hi end Japanese restaurant. The food, as is the case on every visit I have ever made, is outstanding. There is quite a bar scene that you have to snake your way through to get to the more peaceful but still energetic dining room. Service is very polished.2/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMixed feelingsAlthough the food is very good we tried to have the chef's menu but were told they weren't serving it that night which was quite a let down. Their sake kist is the most extensive I have ever seen and tha waiter was very helpuful in heloing me decide which one. Their sushi was outstanding but our very las plate, the unagi (eel) was the worst we have ever had. Don't know what happened here.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AM
