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.

Our dinner was delicious and beautifully presented. We all commented on the freshness and beauty of our rolls and sushi. We enjoyed cocktails and sake (our server made some excellent recommendations). It was a wonderful night out and I can't wait to go again!

One of the best Sushi spots in SF. Love it. Unable to do hot sake in less than 25 minutes? Huh?

Excellent socially distant outdoor experience. All protocols followed. However the quality of the food was extremely disappointing. Portions seemed smaller, over all taste had deteriorated, and food felt like a chain sushi place...extremely basic and mediocre. Sad to see such a beautiful space has deteriorated in food quality. Come for the ambiance, not for the food.

Staff was so friendly! Our server, I think his name is Alan, was so helpful and timed the entire meal perfectly. Sake selection is incredible. The food is TO DIE FOR. Ingredients were fresh and each plate was balanced beautifully.

Food is a bit pricey but great, views spectacular, service was a bit slow. We were charged for my boyfriend's birthday dessert which we didn't notice until after we paid, not a big deal but usually birthday desserts are on the house.

Not worth for the money they charge. On top of that, there was a construction truck that made the entire dinner experience very noisy. We went for my husband's b'day and inspite of me telling them twice that it's his b'day and try to make it special for him, the restaurant did nothing. So, overall not a great experience. I don't think i will be going back

Food was fabulous and expertly prepared. Service was impeccable. Sitting on the sidewalk next to the Embarcadero was like eating while watching the Indianapolis 500. It was very loud and distracted from the wonderful entrées. It was also quite expensive. Over $400 with tip for three people and we only drank half a bottle of sake.

Main courses were brought out while we were still eating our appetizers which is my pet peeve. It was just generally overpriced and the food was good but not exceptional.

The food here is on point. Some of it is extremely inventive. Some is tried and true. Everything is delicious. This time we had margaritas with dinner, also good. We had everything from appetizers to dessert. Nothing disappointed. The host could drop the attitude. Having a snob as a host doesn’t improve your image. Warmth is what people want. Overall, definitely go here, you will love it.

Due to COVID, the outside tables are well spaced and are Embarcadero facing, which may present itself as a somewhat loud avenue. It became chilly throughout our meal, but there were plenty of gas heaters to avail - although they didn't seem to do a great deal. The food was great! Two of us are gluten-intolerant and this is a great choice for like-minded foodseekers. The portions are more than adequately sized. I do recommend the wagyu dish, which was absolutely delicious as was the miso soup and sushi rolls.

The view of the bay bridge was beautiful! We made a reservation and were seated immediately.

The food was 2/5 stars. I ordered the Tokyo Shoyu Ramen and it was over-salted. I rarely send back food, but the soup was inedible. I asked the server if chef could adjust the soup or make a Tonkatsu instead.

He came out with a Tonkatsu which was also overly salty... at this point I took a 2 bites and slid the meal away.

Even though I wasn’t satisfied with my meal, I didn’t send the meal back and happily paid in full as I know times are tough. I’m happy to support businesses where I can.

The server didn’t ask how my 2nd soup was or if there was anything he could do to make the experience better- he just gladly handed the check.

We paid and I let him know that the soup was still inedible. I hope they can adjust the recipe so that other guests can enjoy their meals in the future. Not sure if I will be coming back as there are plenty of other restaurants with a Bay Bridge view.

The food was average. The service left a lot to be desired.
Our drinks arrived after we were done with the appetizers. A server was hard to come by. Was nice to be out again since Covid restrictions are lighter. But try your luck elsewhere.
