My family and I have been going to Ozu for many years. We drove to Manhattan from Rockland county and found an almost empty restaurant with a sign displaying kosher certification has been suspended. We were soooo disappointed. We knew the menu so well ..we...More

Ozu is my go-to place to go when I am on the Upper West Side. It's usually great and fast and delicious. I highly recommend.

I've eaten at Ozu many times in past years but had not eaten there for a couple of years until this evening. I was shocked at how much worse the food was compared to my previous experiences there. I brought my cousin there for his...More

If you are going out to eat with a group of people and not all people are vegan, this is a great option. They serve fish with most of the dishes but you can make all dishes vegan. Great place!

I've been here a few times, but with growing reluctance. I've had several dishes on the menu, and they all seem to lack seasoning. My most recent choice was the Ozu Tempura -- salmon and vegetables prepared tempura-style. The coating was unusually thick and extremely...More

This is a cute restaurant on the upper west side. Unfortunately, like so many other restaurants in this area, it is rather nondescript. The service is excellent. In addition, the menu has several nice vegetarian options. However, we tried the steamed dumplings, the Ozu noodles,...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
