Ozumo Santana Row is a new Japanese Restaurant in San Jose. More casual, with Japanese Beer Garden and with a different menu to Ozumo San Francisco, it offers both Sushi and Izakaya. The menu consists of numerous "tapas" style moderately sized dishes to share. The Bar and Dorobo Lounge are open till late, with food served through the end of Dinner.
“Was here on a Saturday night. Absolutely loved the sushi and ginger tea. … Overall, a fine place to go on a date and try new things.”
“Ozumo is anything but a standard Japanese restaurant, they very thoughtfully and elegantly bring the BEST and truest Japanese experience but add a ton of fun and impeccable easy-going service…without fail, and this new location is no exception.”
“I’ve been to their bar quite a few times already, always grab a drink and some skewers after work and this is a great place to go!”
“Went to Ozumo for dinner on Friday night and a DJ started spinning at 11:00PM. Shout out to Rob Floyd for hooking us up with bomb drinks.”
“Ozumo is such a great addition to Santana Row! I mainly come for drinks and small bites which is what this place is perfect for.”
“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.”
“The Izakaya dishes are amazing, especially the skewers. Also the distinctive decor is beautiful.”
“The ambiance is modern Japanese and felt alive among the Santa Row strip and service was impeccable.
This exceeded all expectations and I highly recommend this place for a true Izakaya experience!”
“The bartenders were quick and efficient even when it was insanely busy; I was thanked profusely for waiting for my drink even though I only waited about 5 minutes which made me really feel how dedicated to great customer service the entire bar staff is.”
“Great late-night yakitori menu! They have a decent sized yakitori menu past 10pm which includes my favorites, pork belly (Buta-Bara), chicken thigh (Momo), Gyu Kakuni short ribs, shrimp balls, etc.”
