If you are searching for an elevated sushi experience, something extraordinary, with an inviting drink selection and unmatched server attention, this is your place. This is coming from a self described foodie and drink connoisseur, probably someone similar to you. I was hear on business and look forward to my next trip to the area. Would also be incredible for a dinner date with a loved one as well.

We always feel special when dining here. From the valet parking to the hostess to the server and every sushi chef who shouts out a welcoming greeting as we walk through, we couldn't feel more comfortable. The food is excellent, fresh, and reminiscent of what one would have in Japan. I'm partial to the sashami, but the rolls, skewers (especially the vegetables and beef), and miso soup are fantastic. While not inexpensive, it is worth every penny.

Bar service, drinks and food are great. There is always a long wait to order, and to get food to the table, which is my only gripe during lunch time...

Our server was outstanding! The sashimi (salmon and white tuna belly) was delicious, you don’t even have to chew, it literally just melts in your mouth. One reason why I only rated the food “3” was because when it came to the dessert, it was unfortunately underwhelming.
We ordered the chocolate fondue which comes with a side of variety of fruits and two different pound cakes sliced in cubes. We had the send the chocolate back as after waiting about the 10 min, the chocolate never got hot. The replacement took about 10-15 min to get to the temperature we were hoping for and was able to enjoy it. But for a sushi restaurant like Ozumi, I expected a bit more.
I mean, they should have served the chocolate fondue when it’s about 2 min away from being ready to enjoy versus serving it cold and having your guests stare at the dessert for about 15 min before you can enjoy it.

We found the restaurant to be very noisy and the prices to be high given the very small serving size. Though we had a reservation, our table was in the middle of floor where people went by us on both sides, creating a hectic feeling.

Ozumo is one of the more expensive sushi restaurants in SF, but it has an amazing view of the water, extremely fresh fish, relatively fast service, and great tasting sushi. The miso soup had too many mushrooms for my taste, but besides that, everything was absolutely delicious. Would recommend for a fancy lunch or dinner after work in Financial District/Soma!

The ambience was very nice, great view, however, what you get for the price is sooo average and bland tasting I would never go back or recommend. I would much rather have went anywhere else. Yes the service was great and they have a view, but if you are going for dinner go somewhere else If you are going to just drink, then this is prob worth it bc they have a wide variety of alcohol.

The quality of the sashimi was excellent. We sat at the sushi bar as we only wanted nigiri /sashimi but orders were being taking by the wait staff which was different from other sushi restaurant. The sushi chef Max was accommodating and took our order as we placed them a couple at a time.

I searched for Japanese restaurant with a full bar and this came out. The food was creative and excellent. My husband is a foodie and he did the ordering. Certainly not your run of the mill Japanese food. Bonus: we had a great view of the Bay Bridge. The meal was almost $300, though with wine and cocktails. But it was a great dining experience.

Everything was fantastic--my only complaint would be the value for what we got. My meal was $20 for a few rolls of sushi and I was still hungry after. Very expensive considering the same exact item is half the price anywhere else.

Good food but worth going only for a business meal. With such small portions and high prices for even small items, it becomes astronomically expensive just to have a full meal.
