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.

Its a good place (not great) for Sushi. I think the best way to order it to ask which fish are fresh. Location is great and the staff was friendly.

We did not have great service. Our server forgot out menu and didn't read our special note for a birthday celebration. The birthday impact was totally disregarded. Food is excellent!

Had severe stomach ache 1~1.5 hours after having some of the rolls / tuna tartar. I suspect some of the ingredients had gone bad.

From the moment we walked in everyone greeted us. We chose to sit outside and we were very comfortable as the space heaters kept us warm. We would like to give a very big compliment to our waitress, Ginnie, who was exceptional and very personable. The food was fantastic and we will defiinitely return again in the future. Thank you to all of the Ozumo staff for a wonderful evening.

Beautiful location & great ambiance, but unfortunately just average sushi. Overpriced. Also disappointed by the $17 cocktail that was overly sweet & mostly just ice.

We strolled in on a Sunday afternoon to try this restaurant that we always drive by. We were greeted warmly and chose to sit in the lounge near the bar. We had no idea that there was more to the restaurant than the lounge. It made sense later why they were encouraging us to sit in the dining room...it's a whole different space which was more impressive than we expected.
In the lounge, the server, Ben, was very friendly and knowledgable. He asked what types of drinks we typically enjoy and he made excellent recommendations ranging in price. He took note of what we planned to eat and recommended drinks that would pair well with our meal. He did not disappoint.
BUT as if Ben was not already an amazing server/bartender, he invited over ROYCE, the Sommelier, Beverage Connoisseur, Extreme Mixologist, The Man! He's the go-to person if you want to be educated on spirits, cocktails, and everything in between. He will give you a tasting experience you won't forget.

The food is to die for. The chef prepared the most amazing omakase we could ever imagine. Everything was prepared and presented beautifully. The pairing of sashimi and sake was mind blowing. The food was definitely worthy of a Michelin rating. The service was world class.

Overall, Ozumo was the ultimate gastro experience in a classy yet non-pretentious atmosphere.

We showed up at 11:52 am. Snippy host informed us that they weren't opening until noon, spun on his heels and walked away. Put a damper on the whole experience when we returned in eight minutes and there was a long line. Gyoja were on the verge of being burnt. Kind of expensive, especially considering the way we were treated.
