Innovative, Contemporary Japanese cuisine offered at this serene, elegant, Zen-garden inspired restaurant located in the heart of San Francisco's Embarcadero District. Breathtaking bay views, authentic modern Japanese design, 30-person sushi bar, open kitchen and robata grill, sleek and sophisticated Sake Lounge, and a monumental Sake list are among some of the qualities that set Ozumo apart from all other Bay Area Japanese restaurants.

Refined Japanese Revelry is about crafting an indulgent Japanese experience by balancing our obsession for seasonality and the artistry of not just great Japanese food but Japanese culinary culture. Ozumo was created over 19 years ago from a vision by our founder Jeremy Umland.

This was my third time celebrating my birthday at Ozumo and my second time celebrating at the San Francisco location. It was an absolute 10/10 per usual experience. The manager and waiter were so nice and greeted me with a glass of champagne on the way in and completely sorbet when we finished dinner. Will definitely be coming back again soon!

If you want an outstanding Japanese restaurant with a real San Francisco feel, Ozumo is the place! Nestled right under the Bay Bridge along the Embarcadero. Wonderful service. Outstanding food. Don’t skip the desserts!!! Fabulous!!

Waiter/service was awesome, great view of bridge, food especially the black cod was delicious. Portions a little small on vegetables but overall a great dining experience.

Great experience, lively decor and ambiance throughout. Two seated tables were a bit small and close together but overall was a great dinner with delicious food.

Nice place for a birthday dinner. I am not sure the cost is justified though.

Its a good place (not great) for Sushi. I think the best way to order it to ask which fish are fresh. Location is great and the staff was friendly.

We did not have great service. Our server forgot out menu and didn't read our special note for a birthday celebration. The birthday impact was totally disregarded. Food is excellent!
