New Year's Eve Special Menus & Offers
Open for New Years Eve with stunning views of the bay and bay bridge.
Great place for a special occasion! Their outdoor dining on the embarcadero side has great views of the bridge and had excellent service during Covid.
The food was fantastic !!
Great quality and completely
The price was a bit out of our range that we would usually pay for a sushi lunch , however , it was our 17th wedding anniversary and it was the first time we went out to eat publicly at a restaurant since the COVID 19 Pandemic - so it was very special and totally worth it.
Always the best toro & amberjack. Been coming here for over 10 years. Still one of my favs
Great food and drinks! Miso soup, fish, sushi were all very fresh and tasty! Lychee martini is soooo good!
Live music was great. Went for restaurant week. Drinks are pricey
From walking in the restaurant to paying. Really bad service, never again I will eat at Ozumo.
It was good. We were expecting more of an authentic Japanese but I would say Ozumo is more of a Japanese-American restaurant. Everything was good. Portions were substantial, and we felt safe eating inside since they have taken all the needed distancing measures. We would come back for more wagyu steak and the cocktails were good as well.
Nice restaurant but could be better for the prices they charge.
Nigiri are small and fish is not that good.
Quality of the food is high. Outside service, which is required now, is slow. It’s also colder on the west side of Embarcadero.
Amazing service and the food is outstanding! Beautiful view of the bay bridge! We will be back soon.
Great dining and service. Giddy Geisha is divine.
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!
Great food and outdoor dining experience. The views of the bay bridge are stunning. Service is excellent.
Our server was amazing!
Nice to see u back up and running Great food and drinks.
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.
Grreat! Not too crowded for indoor dining
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.
We had a great time here. Our kids loves sushi and this was an amazing experience. Our food and service was on point.
Thank you for making our evening special.
Loved this place. Best ramen we have had in a while.
Delicious, great service, beautiful food. Everyone greets you walk in, what a nice touch.
The food, drinks, and service were immaculate. We had a lovely time!
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.
Great restaurant and a lovely experience sitting outside. Great food!!
This is a wonderful place for all occasions.
Beautiful views of the bay bridge , lively street action, terrific service, oh so delicious food and drinks.
Perfect and fun. Love the lobster roll, specialty drinks and he fried chicken among other things.
They have coupons right now so make sure you buy in before going. It’s all app based so makes checking out easier.
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.
Way over priced but the service and atmosphere are good.
The food was really good. It’s a bit pricey but the quality of food was fresh. I def recommend coming at least once !
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.
