About

This restaurant is permanently closed.

For the most stylish and refined Japanese cuisine in Oakland, Ozumo is a can't-beat restaurant that serves exquisite meals in its inviting setting. The shira-e kozara with carrot, cucumber, tofu skin and sesame-miso sauce and the kaisen sarada with prawns, snow crab, wakame seaweed, yuzu and cucumber, make tantalizing appetizer options. Some of Ozumo's specialty entrées include the jidori with sake marinated roasted organic chicken with house tare sauce, the wagyu steak with foie gras compound butter served in a cast-iron plate and the abara sweet chili glazed pork ribs with cilantro. Vegetarian dishes, such as the yasai Japanese eggplant with zucchini, shishito peppers, peas and asparagus and the agedashi tofu with shiitakes and okra in dashi, are also perfectly seasoned.

Ozumo's maki-mono are also popular, such as the house maki Ozumo, made with unagi, snow crab and cucumber topped with tuna, avocado and spicy aioli.

We arrived promptly at the open table reservation time and found the restaurant closed for a special event. Obviously open table and ozumo are not communicating! It was a major inconvenience and embarassing to have to get back in the car, give up the parking that we found, and go to another restaurant.

Booked a table and came there they were closed! Why is their appointment system open if they're closed on a Wednesday? Website or fb account didn't say anything about closing that day. What a waste of time

This restaurant has good food and a great atmosphere however it is a bit pricey but more than that I was disappointed in the service as they had more customers than expected for the evening and we waited a half hour for our meal and when we first sat down no one came over to our table to greet us until about 10 to 15 minutes later. I expressed my displeasure with the manager and she apologized but that's all she seem to be able to offer.

We dined before the Oakland Speakers Series, Tuesday evening. Because I was tardy in making a reservation for the restaurant, we were seated at the Sushi Bar. While the sushi we were served, I was disappointed not to be able to choose from their extensive and interesting dining room menu.

We have eaten here before, however, this time service was incredibly slow and they did not have two items on their menu that we were hoping to have. They clearly were not prepared with adequate staffing for the clientele which they should have projected due to the Joan Baez concert nearby. We were there an hour and a half and had to cancel an order so we could get to the concert on time. The manager did comp our 2 glasses of sake. This was a birthday night out and we had high expectations that were quickly diminished. However, we very much enjoyed the concert.

Food and drink were wonderful as always. A touch pricey for everyday, but it's always good. Atmosphere is also friendly, busy and yet quiet enough for conversation.

The overall experience was wonderful. The food was excellent, and we loved our server. However, towards the end the restaurant was very busy and the service got quite slow.
