“The Izakaya dishes are amazing, especially the skewers. Also the distinctive decor is beautiful.”

Tricia B.

“We reserved the private room and they even let us keep our balloons in there before everyone arrived! They were more than happy to accommodate. The room has this gorgeous large table, a TV, and is a lot more quiet that the outer area.”

Mia S.

“Wagyu, Sea Bass, King Crab, and the Short Rib skewers were phenomenal, giving us the variety we wanted and the flavor we craved. … Mind blowing sushi.. definitely worth the price with such a variety of fish, and the fish tasted so fresh.”

This exceeded all expectations and I highly recommend this place for a true Izakaya experience!”

C. D.

“If your there during brunch they offer bottomless mimosas for $18. The brunch menu also features a yummy dish with cold noodles, raw egg and shredded beef topped with pickled unions. This was amazing and shareable if you order other items. We split one order between 4 adults and there was plenty to go around.”

Brenda I.

“I ordered the lychee martini and started with corn fritters.  Super fresh and delicious.  I can’t wait to go back and try other dishes.”

Vana A.

“The new Ozumo is very different than SF – lighter, more izakaya, casual approach than the heavy, more formal San Francisco dining room.  This is a more serious, authentic approach to Japanese than the previous incarnation (Blowfish) but totally approachable as it is a bit more casual.”
