Great Japanese hot pot?

It's my partner's 40th birthday, and she has requested sukiyaki. So where can I find the best sukiyaki in the SF-Berkeley-Oakland area? It doesn't necessarily need to be prepared tableside, but I'd like it to be really fine beef and carefully prepared broth. She's crazy for sukiyaki, so that's what I'm looking for--not any nabemono. (And I love it too when the meat is buttery and the mushrooms are full flavored and the broth is the perfect balance of sweet and salty--mmmmmmm.)

I was thinking Ozumo, but reviews make it sound overpriced and annoying. It looks like Yoshi's has removed sukiyaki from its menu.

I should also mention that we'll have a couple of vegetarians in our party, so we'll need to take that into consideration, too.

Any recommendations? Many thanks!
