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.

Professional service, you feel like a VIP from the moment you walk in. The food is so good, comes out hot (or cold depending on the dish), and the flavor is always consistent and delicious. You can’t go wrong with Ozumo!

Our table seemed to be “between waitstaff”. We were left unattended, until a lovely busboy offered us some tea. The waiter who finally came to us quickly noted the tea so he could add it to our bill. Then a succession of waiters came to take our order...Food, which was seasoned dominantly by soy/salt, was delivered haphazardly.

Post-pandemic Ozumo is a major disappointment. Sushi was thinly cut, making was weak, service was poor.
Pre-pandemic was questionable, at best. It's not the same experience or quality.
Much better sushi elsewhere.

I highly recommend Ozumo. The food was amazing and perfectly prepared. Zeon was a pleasure and clearly an asset to his team. We sat outdoor on with a panoramic view of the Bay Bridge and the Embarcadero. We will be back again very soon!

The only things a little disappointing was the 2 hours table time limit but they tell you that in advance

The sushi was good, but for the price, I expected better service. We were first to arrive with a reservation but were given a non ideal table with less of a view. No one took our drink orders ever. And our entrees arrived 15 minutes apart. I had thought I'd ordered a dish that came with Miso soup to match my friends, but it didn't come, so perhaps that was my error. But I'd expect a nice place to notice that asymmetric ordering and ask if you'd like to add. No one checked in. It didn't feel like a nice restaurant experience despite the price. I wouldn't return.

Food wasn't served hot enough. Multiple dishes had the same problem. Other than that, service was great, ambience was romantic, and the food was good, but would have been great if served a little hotter.

Absolutely loved this restaurant. The staff's level of care for each detail, plus the outstanding food really make it one of the best dining experiences in SF. Price is high, but worth it as ever aspect of this experience makes sense.

We ate at Ozumo for the second time in 2021. The first time was for dessert outdoors in February and the second time was indoors in April.

The decor and ambiance was very lovely and clean and everyone is very welcoming upon arrival and leaving.

The food was very tasty and fresh. We ordered the most expensive sushi platter (Yokozuna), Shacho roll, Hamachi Maki Roll, Ebi Nigiri, Shime Sama Nigiri, Unagi Nigiri, Hakata Cheesecake, and our favorite dessert, the chocolate-chan dessert that we came back for!

Also I don't know why but the Sky Tower cocktail was literally the best cocktail I've ever had!

Our server Dean (he ended up being our server both times) was very friendly and kind to us.

Shout out to the BACK OF THE HOUSE TEAM as they are never acknowledged but work the hardest and they did a wonderful job and creating and providing a delicious meal.

Enjoyed an outdoor socially distanced dining experience at our favorite SF sushi spot. It did not disappoint and Dir. Luis Huerta went the extra mile to make it a special treat for my daughter .
