    Host and waiter had so much attitude. The sushi was overpriced and not good at all. Needless to say, this was the 1st and last time we’re going there.

    Went on a Wednesday evening. Restaurant was full and we were seated right away. Menu is very creative with many options and classics. The only issue for us was the noise level which made conversation difficult and the choice of background music (selected by the bartender) was too much pounding for a pleasant dining experience. I’ll choose to sit outside nextime. The cuisine is so good I’ll will make another visit.

    It was my first time here, but there wasn't anything we disliked from the numerous dishes we ordered. It was all so fresh and delicious with bites melting in our mouths. TOKYO GYU was a big hit/favorite. I look forward to another visit ... =)

    Outdoor patio is a nice option to have although I do wish the outdoor seating was on the waterside (like Perry's down the street). There is a smell that can waft up from the drains that really competes the wonderful food smells. Just know that if you plan on eating outside....

    Excellent sushi and the service was great. Suggested Saki was awesome. The cod was also good. Noise levels were a bit high. It was a birthday treat for my wife and we enjoyed the dinner.

    It pains me to warn you about questionable service and lack of follow-up at this establishment. We have been there several times before and WE WILL NEVER RETURN. We felt abandoned by our waiter several times. We indicated that we had to catch an event that our son and his finance flew to SF for, which should have been fine for the time we had, but it was kind of ignored. We paid fully before" the end of our meal to stress our need to leave by a certain time. The waiter, and what appeared to be the head chef, said "3 minutes", which turned into 30 minutes, and WE LEFT WITHOUT COMPLETING OUR FULLY PAID FOR MEAL!! To make matters worse, I tried three times (3x) this week to contact the Manager (Kayla?) to discuss what I thought may be a one-off issue with service for them to be aware of. I left messages. NO CALL BACK. Hence my remaining recourse is to WARN FUTURE CUSTOMERS.

    The food was great and we we were at happy hour the day before and they had an awesome bartender with great values. Especially when we compared the prices from the day before. The drinks at dinner were kind of expensive but overall would eat there again. We had sushi rolls, all were delicious.

    El pollo Crispí estaba muy malo ya que el pollo eran muchos nervios y la consistencia era mala. El mari de tempura de camaron, muy sencillo, y con muy poco sabor. El tempura de camaron eran muy chicos los camarones y su consistencia era aguda. Pedimos un whiskey específico y nos trajeron un bourbon (nos lo cambiaron después, pero llegó otra cosa de lo que habíamos pedido). La mesera muy muy amable. Nunca volvería. Precio calidad me precio pésimo.

    We have been going to Ozumo for several years for our "date night" option. Food is amazing, ambience is great and its always been really relaxing. Something we both look forward to as a getaway and a nice evening out. However this experience was rushed and it felt like we were getting pushed out. We showed up and were told promptly after ordering our appetizers to order dinner because it was last call and we had to finish and leave in the next 30 minutes. For a $200 meal, to be told we had to eat and get out in 30 minutes- we were really upset. I'm not sure if the hours changed suddenly but this was very disappointing for a place that we have enjoyed coming to for so long.

    The decor and presentation were just artistically fantastic. Food was wonderful. The noise level was mostly unacceptable. I wear hearing aids and want to have a fulfilling conversation with friends over dinner - this was impossible at times because of the noise.

    Haven't been to Ozumo in a few years. Moved away but when the opportunity to came to visit San Francisco, had to come. It was my wife bday and what a perfect way to celebrate then to take her to one of my favorites restaurant on Saturday May 28th. Well, not a fan or favorite anymore! Sent a note via Open table when I made the reservation. Asked for seating in the lively bar AREA. Arrived when the hostess wanted to sit us at the Bar??!! I asked her if she read my note for restaurant, FAIL. The note also stated it was a Birthday. No mention of this, no special acknowledgement what so ever. FAIL. Got our seat after negotiation with hostess. Spread out seating, the lights were turned way up, too bright in the place now. It's not sexy at all here! This used to be the spot, not anymore. Staff is lack luster, our server didn't tell us about any specials. Had to find out by asking another group what they ordered and then Mgr said, oh yea, that our special chef's roll for this evening. No energy with our server, brought up all this to her and no real effort for service recovery. Not even a scoop of ice cream with a candle. Will not come back.

    We were not a priority to our server - continually forgetting things and barely coming by. Excuses about big parties and lack of staff. Had to pay 20% tip even though it wasn’t worth it because it was automatic at 6 ppl. Not the service I come to expect from Ozumo at all

    We were so excited to try Ozumo, after walking by the restaurant every day for almost a year. We had out of town guests. We were all impressed by the room. It's striking how beautiful it is. There were a few times something disappointed us with the service, since we felt the prices warranted stellar service. For the price, a little more than $100pp for 6 of us, we didn't feel it's a place we'll go back to. The food is beautifully prepared, but there's not much of it. We'll keep looking for our sushi place.

    Went back to Ozumo after few months. I feel the menu used to be longer and had more items. They were out of few items, as well 🤷‍♂️ Food: - mushroom was great - sushi was good. - Cheesecake was meh (save the calories for something else :)) - The tea was so bad that we couldn’t drink. - They charged $4 for a thin glass of soda. And no free refill! I think we paid more for soda (per fl oz) than for the cocktail :) and yes, I am complaining about a $4 item out of a $200 bill! - Service: ok with new post-pandemic standards

    Our server gave us misinformation about which menu items wouldn’t work with a serious allergy. This led to food being delivered to the table that could have caused anaphylaxis. Thankfully another server came by to inform us just in time, but it made the experience uncomfortable. The food we did have was delicious, however.
