Celebrated Mother’s Day and enjoyed the food. Very pricey, the most I’ve ever spent on sushi.
The only thing different i would’ve done is just get the sushi you enjoy versus the chefs plate.

The old favorite dishes have changed. No brown rice. No coffee. Chairs with holy back and can’t hold my jacket. Black cabanas along the wall not visually pleasing.

Sushi portions for the moriawase were small, even by Japanese standards. And it was a surprise to see Kimchi as one of the tsukemono appetizers—way to strong of a flavor to precede sushi.

What exactly is the point of making reservations when you have to wait 20 minutes for your table? In addition, the server took forever to take my order and gave me the wrong bill to boot. It’s a lovely place and the food is good but not worth the bother.

Amazingly delicious and creative food. And they altered a few of the dishes to be vegan for us. A little pricey but worth it.

ハマチ巻きとカルフォルニアロールをいただきました。ハマチ巻きは見た目にもきれいです。魚は新鮮で、ご飯もほどよいかたさでとっても美味しくいただきました。
アボカドが入った巻物が好きで、海外では良く食べます。本場カルフォルニアでカルフォルニアロールを食べた!と土産話もできました。
接客も素晴らしいです。お寿司がなくなりそうになるのを見計らって、声を掛けてくれます。
握り手は日本人の方でした。少しお話もできました。楽しい時間となりました。一人でもカウンターがあるので、大丈夫でした。
ご馳走さまでした(≧∀≦)

I thought the fish excellent, and the dishes creative. For the money they were small, so you need to order more than I would in other sushi establishments, making for a more expensive meal. My server was very sweet and attentive.

The food came out at wrong times, miso soup was served AFTER the main dish was out on the table. And the appetizer came at the same time with the main dish. My friend had to wait for 15 minutes to get her drink after she placed her order.

My wife is Japanese American and has extensive fine dining experience in Tokyo, she was satisfied so I am satisfied. We sat at the bad and had delightful contestation with both the Mongloian and Japanese Sushi chefs who were both experts, they made the night memorable. Their suggestions were greatly appreciated.

Ozumo is the best sushi restaurant I have ever been to...maybe the best restaurant overall! The food was outstanding, the service impeccable and the sake list remarkable! Even the bridge views from the bar are tremendous! One of the best dining experiences we've ever had.

The fish was primarily good, but two of the pieces were off. I expected better for the price point.

I was there with a friend from Europe, and apparently he didn’t tip enough (we split the bill)... and the server came over to embarrass him for not leaving sufficient gratuity. How embarrassing!!!

We've been coming to Ozumo for a few years now. It's our favorite Japanese cuisine restaurant in San Francisco. Recently for whatever reasons they changed many of the dishes we love and always order. The Hanabi, which used to be awesome along withe the Dhoyo and Buta Abara were all changed significantly and not in a good way. Not sure why these changes were made but I'd love for them to go back to what they know and what their regulars come here for.

Consistency is key in a great restaurant. If it ain't broken, don't fix it.

The fish at Ozumo is always first rate, but it's absurdly overpriced. I only eat here when someone else is paying (usually corporate lunches). We had an inexperienced waitress for our business lunch who didn't recognize our table placed individual orders and had the food sent out a couple of plates at a time (as if we were sharing). It took about 30 minutes from the time the first plate was dropped for everyone's food to arrive. We never saw our waitress again after that. I had to chase down another member of the wait staff to get our check. To be fair, I've definitely had better service at Ozumo over the years. The poor service on this occasion is not the norm.

If you are searching for an elevated sushi experience, something extraordinary, with an inviting drink selection and unmatched server attention, this is your place. This is coming from a self described foodie and drink connoisseur, probably someone similar to you. I was hear on business and look forward to my next trip to the area. Would also be incredible for a dinner date with a loved one as well.

We always feel special when dining here. From the valet parking to the hostess to the server and every sushi chef who shouts out a welcoming greeting as we walk through, we couldn't feel more comfortable. The food is excellent, fresh, and reminiscent of what one would have in Japan. I'm partial to the sashami, but the rolls, skewers (especially the vegetables and beef), and miso soup are fantastic. While not inexpensive, it is worth every penny.
