"Environment was nice, but the food was not worth the cost. Although the ambience and quality was high, it still seemed overpriced. There are better Japanese restaurants in Oakland with more reasonable prices. I am unlikely to go back."

"Ozumo is the best sushi around. The service is hit or miss and we never see the same wait staff each time we go. The waiters always seem like it is his/her first night on the job. Friendly but not well trained. Wednesday ramen night and Monday sushi bar night are both favorites of ours. The hamachi sashimi appetizer is amazing! The karage chicken a chili dusted chicken is great. All of the sushi rolls and nigiri are fresh and inventive."

"Ozumo- Oakland is a very attractive modern restaurant with Asian accents. The bar is an enjoyable place to have a drink with an excellent variety of Sake. The dining tables are large with comfortable chairs. All of our servers were excellent. The menu has many options. We had at least eight dishes. All the food was very good, but not necessarily better than some other Japanese restaurants in the East Bay. The prices reflect the upscale nature of the restaurant and the neighborhood. We will return for special occasions."

"I booked a 9:30 p.m. reservation, though they close at 10. I was under the impression, as most fine dining restaurants do, that if they book your reservation, the intent is to allow you to complete your meal, unfettered. At 11 p.m., after spending $500 between 3 people, we were ejected from the restaurant because they were closed. To say that I was flummoxed, would be a gross understatement. I will absolutely NEVER come back to this establishment again."

"This restaurant has very nice decor and the service was good. The food is not worth the money at all. The sushi and bento box was just okay. The salmon could have been bigger, it was really small piece and served a huge scoop of rice and the sushi didn't seem fresh."

"I was hosting a lunch with the president of a sake distillery in Japan with a well known sake sommelier from the Bay Area, so this had to go well. We were greeted very warmly upon entering by the manager (apparently also a sake somm). When I explained who my guest was, we got the royal treatment. Sake tasting cups were provided upon request; the staff was very attentive, and the food was fantastic. Given that we weren't your "ordinary" guests, I can honestly say that the staff took great care of us with extremely short notice. I would definitely recommend Ozumo. Be sure to ask your servers for their sake/shochu recommendations, as they have a great list. My only regret was, I couldn't enjoy the sake as much as I would have liked, since I was driving!"
