Waitress was very Blah. Didn’t converse much, took forever to come and get order and food took even longer to get to table. Food was amazing but the portions too small especially for the price. We ordered hot sake and she brought a carafe to pour the sake into another carafe to heat it up, not telling us that the initial carafe was cold, so the first shot was a tasteless disappointment.
After all that we get the bill and there’s a SF Ordinance tax. I ask about it and the manager comes over to tell us that they are responsible to covers their workers health insurance and that is what that tax is for. Now I’m new to the area but it seems ridiculous to charge $350 for two and then charge me a tax to pay your workers insurance. It’s like a doctor charging her patients for her nurses health care. Definitely NOT cool.

I met my 3 friends there for dinner. I waited in the bar until they arrived and ordered a Sancerre (not on the wine menu by the glass, but he did have it and I was glad). I paid $23 for the glass ($27 after tip)...by the way, my husband owns a winery and this is extremely overpriced for Sancerre. Another friend arrives and she orders the same thing..,again $23 for the glass. We are seated and order another glass each OF THE SAME WINE, and we’re charged $20/per glass. Something is very off in the bar area. Either the bartenders are charging up and pocketing the extra $, or they have a disconnect with the servers in the dining room. Overall the service in the dining room was good, as well as the food. But for a wine list that is lacking some great vino choices, they’re overcharging (a glass of Sancerre should be around $16, by the way...). I will be back, but i’ll Never order a drink in the bar again.

Having walked by Ozumo many times on our way to the Embarcadero YMCA we finally decided to give it a try. We have very high standards for sushi and the sushi here did not disappoint. Fish was fresh, artfully prepared. Good wine and beer selection. Huge space with room between tables for a change. Nice ambiance, not too noisy and fantastic views of the Bay Bridge.

Great Japanese find off Howard st near the piers in San Francisco. Very tasty and filling sushi, sashimi, nigiri, maki, shrimp. Great wine list. Very nice feel to the place with funky furniture and a big open sushi kitchen to view while waiting. Well recommended.

Sushi was beautifully presented and delicious. Oysters were among the best I have ever had and were presented in such a beautiful manner. The restaurant has a great vibe + energy.

We have eaten at Ozumo for 12+ years when visiting SF. This meal was by far the most disappointing and unfortunately pretty expensive. The fish on the nigiri was clearly frozen as it was without flavor and quite wet. The carpaccio portions of fish on the nigiri were embarrassing and Ozumo should be ashamed of the price per piece. I ordered a carafe of saki that was half a full bottle yet was charged nearly the price of a full bottle. The bill was 4 times what we pay on the SF Peninsula where we enjoy markedly better sushi and reasonable drink prices. Ozumo undoubtedly pays a lot in rent for its location and in my opinion the location/view is its primary attraction. We will not be returning to this over-priced, low quality restaurant.

Simplistic cuisine with impressive visual appeal and a tantalizing impact on the pallet! Not for the fainthearted wallet, but worth splurging on an unforgettable experience - cooking your own wagyu steak! Question is, can you handle that pressure?

I've come here in the past and really enjoyed it; this time it was sub par.

Hamachi sashimi plate was not great. Salmon nigiri was wonderful.

We asked for house sake - we were directed t a list of sakes on the menu that could be poured "as house." without knowing it, we ordered an 80$ carafe of sake. Not exactly house sake. I didn't appreciate being misdirected on what I was ordering like that.

My wife and I needed a date and we both thought of Ozumo. The food was excellent and our server was very friendly. We spent $200, including tip, cocktail, sushi, appetizer, small plates and dessert. Our entree was the black cod which was very tender, melting in our mouths. My wife especially loved the rice pudding dessert. Our seat had a great view of the Bay Bridge and it was lit with its dancing lights. Expect to spend $50-$75/person for a unique foodie experience in SF. Will return, but probably next year or really special occasion.
