Mi cumpleaños y me habían dicho que era bueno,pero no fue así 😓
The food is exquisite. Even the miso soup and agedashi tofu had layered & nuanced flavors. The sushi was fresh, and maki rolls were light & not packed full of rice, & not topped with sweet sauces.
You must try the Hokkaido seaweed salad. We couldn’t stop eating. The waiter, who was actually Japanese, made an excellent sake suggestion & when I told him the type of sake I liked, he steered me to the perfect selection. It’s more expensive than most sushi restaurants but after eating there you understand why.
Perfect for a special occasion.
Ozumo is great but a tad overpriced for the food and drinks they actually deliver. We tried the sake flights which were delicious but there were only 3 servings in each flight ($20 and $36 resp.). We ordered three rolls and a fried chicken appetizer. The rolls were okay but I would have preferred more sauce and bigger rolls for the price. The Yu Yake Maki roll was quite dry and little too sour for my taste = not worth $20.
Our server was very nice and the service overall was great. We had a table on the Embarcadero side (outdoors) which was okay, not cold (they have good heaters) but it was loud. Maybe sitting on the Steuart St side is better.
We've gone to Ozumo many times over the years. It's always been a great place, but it seemed to have slipped a bit when we went last year. We decided to take out of town guests hoping that it had gotten its grove back and happy to say that it did. We ordered a variety of appetizers, as well as mains, as well as sushi, and all of them were well prepared. The kitchen was on top of their game. The service was paced perfectly, so we never felt rushed, even on a Friday night. Corkage of $40 is a bit over the top. Overall it was an extremely enjoyable dinner.
Delicious aesthetic food! Beautiful restaurant! Loved it!
One of our favorite places
Excellent, fresh fish; beautiful creations, great service.
The server was not helpful or interested, When we asked for recommendation, we were pointed to all the most expensive items on the menu.
We were a party of 3 and one person was late. The Host and hostess were gracious and allowed 2 of us to sit while they watched for the missing person. We were attended too as soon as we sat. Servers were also gracious and answered all our questions succinctly. All of our food choices were beautifully prepared and delicious.
At first bite, we all knew that we'd return to Ozumo often.
Great food great experience!
Great dinner last night. Everything was delicious - from cocktails to dessert!
Exceptional service! Food was delicious. Thank you all, so MUCH!
Ozumo came as a high recommendation for a sushi establishment on the waterfront. While we we pleased with our service. Sushi item were nearly inedible with how much wasabi/horseradish was applied. I personally had to pick off most of the wasabi to make it “edible”. The entire rice was covered in wasabi. I was highly disappointed so was my boyfriend. As it made us cut our dinner short since our palette was shot was wasabi. I can’t emphasize enough on the wasabi.
We, however, had a great sake recommendation and spoiled ourselves with a $250 bottle of sake. Overall, would we come back? Nope. No fault to the server, your service was excellent!
Beyond 5 star
Amazing service from the whole staff, our waiter Jimmy was so kind and accommodating! Delicious food and outstanding overall experience!
The food was amazing and our wait staff made the experience all the better!
Food was bland and had no flavor. Disappointing as it was so good in the past. Excellent service however.
Great quality sushi. On the expensive side, but worth the price for a special occasion.
Excellent fresh fish - sashimi was fabulous! Ambiance was great - warm heat lamps and great views of the Bay Bridge.
Drinks were good, but expensive, and they didn't arrive until part way through the meal. Our waiter kept forgetting to bring soy sauce, and one of our appetizers got missed.
For the huge price tag, I expect a more consistent level of service.
The drinks were amazing, food was so nicely presented like a piece of art felt bad eating but didn't want it to go to waste. Amazing place to take a date. Pricey but for the experience worth it.
It was FANTASTIC!!!
Food took way too long. Service was very poor and unprofessional. Even though we ordered all the sushi rolls at the same time they were served separately 15 min apart. I am not going back. 2 people we needed up paying $360 for this. Yes, doesn’t worth!
Insulting how Ozumi charges for minuscule sized sushi .
Food was amazing! Staff were so kind and attentive!
I absolutely love this restaurant. The food is exceptional and so fresh.The service is impeccable and highly attentive and I really enjoy the ambiance.
Not like it used to be
Never disappointed at this restaurant. The food is amazing although a bit pricey. A fun and delicious treat!
