    You can tell if the cook can prepare decent miso soup - this one was outstanding. Amazing sashimi and sushi. Awesome waiter - thank you DeFrantz for taking the experience from spectacular to unique!

    Service and food were exceptional. We sat in the bar late on 11/20/22 and the team on shift that night were welcoming, attentive, astute, and really fantastic overall. I really can't say enough good things, and the creativity with the sushi and cocktail preparation is top knotch.

    Ozumo remains one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The good daiginjo sake is worth splurging on and the “Yokozuna” sushi selection is like a trip to Japan it is so high quality. It ain’t cheap - especially if you go all out - but worth every penny. You kinda just gotta go for it at Ozumo!

    Wonderful place and experience! Expect a cozy environment, delicious food, and good service. Hosts and bussers will keep your table clean and aesthetic throughout the dinner but are not intrusive like many other establishments can be. The ambiance may vary depending on where you sit but the overall feels is wonderful. Lastly we come for the food, if flavor is important to you then you get an excellent bang for your buck. Portions are reasonable, just pace yourself. Recommend ordering a few plates for a party of two to split then one by one after. Take your time and enjoy the experience! Stand out starters: Nasu & Hamachi Maki Wine: Wide selection and bottle service! We opted to split a low end red pinot by the glass and it was excellent. Would recommend!

    There is so much good sushi in SF that it's hard to defend Ozumo's very high price point. Their menu is twice as expensive as other sushi restaurants for no clear difference. The dining room is nice, but no better than other sushi restaurants. It's good sushi and very overpriced. Also, not a very big selection of rolls. I think this place is where you bring an out-of-town client to impress them with your sales budget… I'm sure this is appealing to some guests, but the servers were so focused on clearing the table that they interrupted our meal repeatedly and make the whole experience feel rushed. More than once I had to stop a server from taking a dish we were still eating. Honestly, it makes a diner feel a little unwelcome.

    We tried the SF restaurant week special, 3 courses for $30. It sounded good at first glance except the first course is either edamame or Miso soup which usually come with the main course in most places anyway. The last course is a single mochi. So, really, it is about $30 for a choice from 2-3 dishes. We had the Hamachi kara bento and the Wagyu meatball donburi. Neither is something one would write home about. Food was underwhelming but the service was good. Don't think we will be back.

    Still the best sushi in SF! The sushi is fresh and delicious. Specialty rolls are delicious. You can also ask them to create something for you and it is outstanding. The Director of Sake and the Wine Director are both top notch. They know their product and recommend well.

    Celebrating our friend’s anniversary. Food was absolutely delicious! The best chicken karaage I’ve ever had. Crunchy on the outside but so moist on the inside! All the seafood was fresh and the flavors of everything was amazing. The rib eye steak was as tender as the special Wagyu beef! The sushi was so fresh and delicious.

    Dined during Restaurant Week. Miso Soup was tasty. Kento Sashami and Maki Bento consists of tuna, hamahi and salmon sashimi with California Roll. Also included a nice and fresh salad. Fish slices were thick, delicious and substantial. Tsukune Donburi was a good portion, consisting of three tender and moist meatballs with a running egg yolk. Added an order of karaage fried chicken..pieces were smaller than previously and pricey. Matcha Mochi was delectable to end our lunch meal.

    Ordinary Japanese food (far, far below Tokyo average) at high prices. Dishes are small. Music is loud. If that’s what you want, it fits the bill. If you spend any time in Tokyo at all, you will find the prices outrageous and the quality uninteresting. Nothing was terrible. Just uninspired.

    Sushi/sashimi isn’t very fresh but the price point is okay. Ordered tofu and it’s pretty good. Ordered mushrooms and that’s the best dish. Steak was terrible and had a weird smell… Do NOT order their steak.

    Food was good as was the server - however it took 10 min for the first item and an hour for the last (sushi) to come from the kitchen. And was so loud for first 45 minutes (7:30-8:15) that we weren’t able to have a conversation until the last 30 min of the meal.

    Service is fine and food is above average but frankly, the food portions were pathetic. How do you justify charging $35 before tip and tax and whatever else SF layers on for basically what is a quasi-amuse bouche / appetizer portions…at lunch?!

    Nigiri sushi was excellent, as was the Ozumo specialty sushi, which is very unique. Truly melt in your mouth quality. Our server was nice but there were long periods with no checking. The hostess was awkward and rude when we asked for a table near a window. She could have handled the decline much more graciously, but left the impression instead that we were a lower priority customer. The interior is very cool but it is also very noisy, even when all tables aren’t occupied.
