Lovely food
Waiters push too hard for outrageously expensive drinks - probably getting a commission there, but this makes them overdo it

Beautiful space, excellent service. We started off with the seaweed salad and grilled octopus. We then had the omakase make, 10 chefs choice pieces, all were amazing. Finished with the chocolate fondue and wonderful views of the bay. Pricey, but a great overall foodie experience.

This was my first time at Ozumo, and it was a very positive experience! The staff were all very welcoming and helpful. The food and drinks were outstanding! My only slight disappointment was that I felt the price of the cocktails was a bit high for the portion served. Otherwise I was very satisfied with Ozumo and have already recommended it, and plan to return!!

Ozumo used to be really special. While our food was okay, the service was so bad. We started with our order, only to be told by our waiter they were out of one of the dishes. Would have been nice to know before ordering. Then they didn't follow the order (we had specified that we were sharing one dish to start, then my friend was having an entree and I was having two small plates). And the uni starter was unimpressive (go to Skool if you want good uni custard), I left almost all of it behind -- partly because it came a long time after all the other dishes, and partly because it was tasteless) and our hapless waiter didn't ask. Not appropriate service for this level restaurant.

Very Japanese arthritics and cuisine - totally what I love. The robata grill made the main dining area slightly smoky and warm. Great view of the waterfront in the main dining area.

Since I have been to many other sushi places in the city, the value for the quality isn’t what it used to be. There are other places I would rather spend that kind of money.

This was the most amazing meal ever!!! Everything from the wine to the appetizers to the sushi and the plates were fantastic. It's on the pricey side, but worth it 100%

The restaurant is beautiful and the sushi is good. Out of the four rolls we had, one was outstanding, however, the rest of the rolls were just good. Our waitress seemed to truly not like us. Not sure what we did wrong, but it was very annoying, especially if you look at the pricing levels. Personally, I would not return.

Either research your knowledge of the different types of sushi and Saki before you go, or hope you have a server that is really good at explaining things on the menu. We found the menu complicated and our server wasn't able to go to the basics of explaining how to order very easily.
The food was excellent as was the Saki but we finally got to the point where we just had her bring us items she thought we would like.
The restaurant feel and decor were beautiful and everyone was very friendly. Great location too.
We will definitely go back but will do our research before we do.

Overall great service. Our plans had changed and moved up our reservation time which was super easy to do. Our waiter was very careful about our food allergies and double checked to make sure to get everything right. He was very attentive and received our food really fast.

Had date night with my husband and we had the best customer service that we have ever revived by our server, Natasha.

She made our evening very easy and special. Also, thanks to all the staff who greeted us upon our arrival at our table. Food still pricey per the offerings though.

I enjoy Ozumo for many reasons:
- quality is consistently top notch - always fresh and brimming with flavor
- service is also consistently great - attentive staff who are professional AND personable
- ambiance is wonderful for any occasion
- location is close to public transportation and street parking
This is our Japanese restaurant of choice and dine here often for lunch and dinner.

The server really wanted to turn the table so he rushed us through. And when I had to add a drink he rolled his eyes.
Food is okay, but service makes it not worth returning.

Lovely place just to many people asking same question about if we are ready to order. It is nice with attention but co fusing who is our waiter. In business lunch one may need time to chat and not rush through the order.

Terrible experience. I spent $550 for 2 people and received by far the worst service and food experience. Sashimi and sushi felt like they have gone bad, and they just served us leftovers. The uni was the worst I ever tried. The desert was bad. The waiter wouldn’t come to us and only came to tell us that the restaurant will be closing soon. I don’t write these reviews ever, but this was bad.

It use to be a good restaurant, and now has turned into a bad place..
