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.

Sushi is absolutely excellent! Service as well! Some items were truly heavenly!
However, be prepared for a hefty bill. I think we calculated about $7.00/bite of food :-) that can add up. That said, definitely a place for a special occasion or if you are just not that hungry. Some extra nice tables with a water view. Bar tables were sticky to touch, even after we asked to have it re-wiped.

Just OK !! I excepted something different.
The place
Is really nice, the service too touristy and slow. They recommend you the most expensive Sake and the premium nigiris…… BTW nigiris less than average ….sashimi avatar be average. Difficult to think to come back again !

We had to sit in an odd spot in the main dining area, adjacent to a big table. The acoustics of this section is horrible, so it was loud with lots of echos. It was uncomfortable, and frankly a poor experience. Server was nice, but service was slow. I’d confirm the table before arriving.

It’s our first time eating at Ozumo. For lunch, we had ramen, kaisen don and bento. The food was good and the serving was just right. Jimmy, our server, was very nice and helped us pick what to order. Will try to eat here at night. The place has such a nice view of the bay bridge! 😊

Our waiter “Z” was very knowledgeable and available but didn’t hover. All the server staff were incredibly attentive and accommodating. Food was refined, fresh, and delicious. My only complaint is that the first 7 course arrived almost on top of each other before drinks were served. When I’m spending $250 per guest I don’t want to feel rushed. The second series of dishes were spaced in better sequence and we definitely go back again. Amazing Saki selection

Don't go at 3pm. Tried it before a Giants game. The shift changes at 3:30 so we were firmly told by the front desk that all our food orders had to be in by 3:30. Felt rushed and the restaurant was empty. Food was good but very expensive. A light lunch and a few beers was $200 with tip. Lesson learned. Wagyu nigiri was delicious though.

Lovely view from the patio. Their more expensive sashimi was OK. Salmon Belly was fabulous as also the rolls and roasted mushroom.
Extensive wine list but wrong wine glasses!

Beautiful place, very nice people. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu especially since we arent very well versed in Japanese food. From beginning to end it was a great experience.

This is a favorite spot of mine! Slightly pricy for what you're getting, and the service is a little slow. But the food is delicious (including cocktails), and the views are incredible. Watch the lights twinkle on the Bay Bridge after dark!

Good, fresh fish and fast service. Pricey but worth it for quality sushi. I would recommend and go again when in the Bay Area. Nice outdoor seating options for summer, too!
