    Came here for a work happy hour (love a deal) on 8/4! We were a large party of over 20 and Chris was our server. He was such a delight and he made sure our drinks and plates were filled...super polite, very knowledgeable about the menu, A+++! Great food and you can't beat the location but good service is what set our experience here apart. Prior to arriving, Michelle in special events helped us make arrangements for our large group on fairly short notice. She was so accommodating! Definitely would host another event here! Can't wait to come back!

    Good quality of fish and assortment of dishes. Poor service; understaffed, waiter constantly running around and never checked in on us. Took 45 minutes to receive an Arnold Palmer. Extremely poor value; not worth.

    We had a lovely view of the Bay bridge as the sun went down. Service was helpful, but unobtrusive. The food was excellent- the gyoza had light but crispy wrapper, flavorful and juicy filling. The Kraage was great, and the fish and rolls were flavorful and fresh.

    I was actually SHOCKED -- it took nearly two hours for our food to arrive for lunch -- and even worse, NOT in any kind of logical order. One appetizer arrived fairly late into the process -- then food orders for three of eight people at the table -- then another appetizer for the table some 20+ minutes after that (the three of us were already done eating our main courses by then) -- THEN the food courses for the remaining five people. WHAT'S GOING ON OZUMO?? I know you get to write in a 20% gratuity, given we were more than 6 people, but that is shockingly bad. We had an advance reservation, so no good reason for such poor service. The waitress was fine, mind you, but the TIMING was unacceptable -- half of us had to return to work, before the other half was even starting their meals.

    The recommended starters were excellent, fresh and yummy hamachi in ponzu dressing, love the tuna avocado on Chips, good agedashi tofu. For mains and sides, we had Delicious sautéed mushrooms, decent sushi and sashimi, generous portions and delicious grilled miso hamachi.

    Went on a Wednesday evening. Restaurant was full and we were seated right away. Menu is very creative with many options and classics. The only issue for us was the noise level which made conversation difficult and the choice of background music (selected by the bartender) was too much pounding for a pleasant dining experience. I’ll choose to sit outside nextime. The cuisine is so good I’ll will make another visit.

    Outdoor patio is a nice option to have although I do wish the outdoor seating was on the waterside (like Perry's down the street). There is a smell that can waft up from the drains that really competes the wonderful food smells. Just know that if you plan on eating outside....

    It pains me to warn you about questionable service and lack of follow-up at this establishment. We have been there several times before and WE WILL NEVER RETURN. We felt abandoned by our waiter several times. We indicated that we had to catch an event that our son and his finance flew to SF for, which should have been fine for the time we had, but it was kind of ignored. We paid fully before" the end of our meal to stress our need to leave by a certain time. The waiter, and what appeared to be the head chef, said "3 minutes", which turned into 30 minutes, and WE LEFT WITHOUT COMPLETING OUR FULLY PAID FOR MEAL!! To make matters worse, I tried three times (3x) this week to contact the Manager (Kayla?) to discuss what I thought may be a one-off issue with service for them to be aware of. I left messages. NO CALL BACK. Hence my remaining recourse is to WARN FUTURE CUSTOMERS.

    El pollo Crispí estaba muy malo ya que el pollo eran muchos nervios y la consistencia era mala. El mari de tempura de camaron, muy sencillo, y con muy poco sabor. El tempura de camaron eran muy chicos los camarones y su consistencia era aguda. Pedimos un whiskey específico y nos trajeron un bourbon (nos lo cambiaron después, pero llegó otra cosa de lo que habíamos pedido). La mesera muy muy amable. Nunca volvería. Precio calidad me precio pésimo.

    We have been going to Ozumo for several years for our "date night" option. Food is amazing, ambience is great and its always been really relaxing. Something we both look forward to as a getaway and a nice evening out. However this experience was rushed and it felt like we were getting pushed out. We showed up and were told promptly after ordering our appetizers to order dinner because it was last call and we had to finish and leave in the next 30 minutes. For a $200 meal, to be told we had to eat and get out in 30 minutes- we were really upset. I'm not sure if the hours changed suddenly but this was very disappointing for a place that we have enjoyed coming to for so long.
