    QUICK REVIEW: Solid 4.8 stars. Outstanding food, service and cool atmosphere. A nice surprise near Embarcadero. YES, we will be back. LONGER REVIEW: One of us had been to Ozumo many times before, and the first time for another. We had high expectations, and Ozumo delivered. SERVICE: Seated promptly in a booth by request. Yoshimi - our main server - was Outstanding. Great attitude, nice advice, and she was always there with perfect timing. Very nice job! COCKTAILS and WINE. Fairly impressive cocktail, whiskey and wine list. Nice selection of Japanese whisky and sake. Wine list was very adequate for the venue. FOOD: Ebi Tempura special, Dohyo, Ginza Wagyu filet, Special Maki. All perfectly prepared and cooked. Very tasty. OVERALL: A great spot near Embarcadero and the East Cut. Tip: Get reservations, this place is popular, even on weekdays. Prices will set you back a bit, but worth it. YES, we would go back.

    Service was extremely slow. It took 40 minutes for our food to come out, and they ended up making a mistake with our bill (charged us an extra bento). The food was also mediocre. The rice that came in our bentos were hard and cold - it was disappointing.

    Ozumo was a great spot for New Years Eve dinner and the selection was amazing for how busy a night it would be expected. Although we didn't try the Omakase special menu for the night, the tables around us all seemed to enjoy it a lot and was definitely a great value for the prix fixe.

    Waiter was up selling and didn’t inform the customer about the cost of omakase. The website menu for omakase is like $250/person but in reality it was much more than that. I thought he was very unprofessional the way the waiter was upselling it. The bill for dinner for 2 was $1200! Yes $1200 before tips. With tips it was $1409. It’s the most expensive dinner that I’ve been to and I have been to many Michelin restaurants. Definitely not worth it! We were still hungry when we left. Definitely not recommended!

    Horrible host refused to seat us with groups we have unless we commit to a minimum of $100 spending. She seated us as far away from each other as possible and we still spent over $100 per person at the end... not worth the money and won't be going back

    Food was outstanding. I asked the waiter if he could keep us to $100/head on food (family style). He said we would need to do $120/head or we would not have enough food. I went with his recommendation, and we had WAY too much food. Almost all of the sushi and sashimi was wasted. I think $80/head would have done the trick.
