Ozumo San Francisco Reviews
Dec 28, 2005
Walk into Ozumo and you feel like you entered a
night club. Upon opening the door, you may or may not be greeted by a
beautiful hostess (depends on how much bling you carry), and there is a
trendy bar atmosphere at the foreground of the restaurant. It seemed
like everyone in the room was trendy and good looking, and that
enhanced the already chic decor. The meat of the restaurant maintains
the hip environment with dim lighting, unique art subjects, and a view
of the SF bridge, bay and city lights. The food itself was also
enjoyable. My dinner party of 3 ordered three rolls of sushi as
appetizers and our own entrees. The sushi rolls were fresh and
presented well. None of us died from poisoning. My entree, lamb chops,
was amazing... the other diners wished they had my plate. I can tell,
though, that some might have a bad experience at Ozumo, because the
prices are a bit kicked up, and the waitstaff are attractive but dumb.
I received my meal about 5 minutes before the others did, and none of
us were given proper silverware until we asked for it. Overall, though,
you'll enjoy Ozumo if you appreciate trendy/contemporary decor and
flavorful/fusion dishes, but stay away if you're looking for

I ordered the "Negima", which consisted of slices of duck breast
embedded with a bit of scallion. The scallion made for an interesting
combination, but the duck breast definitely could have been a lot
fattier and jucier. My impressions of this dish might also be skewed
because before I was served it I had a bite of Tim's lamb dish, which
was blew the duck away. The side dish for the duck was some kind of
burnt cabbage which actually tasted pretty decent.
Out of all the sushi rolls we got, the Ozumo roll was particularly
good. The fish was fresh and the sauce was spicy, but not too spicy.
This was my first raw fish since the infamous Tojo's Debacle, and I'm happy to say that my night did not end in an ER.
