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.
“I enjoyed what I ordered-especially edamame, and the fried chicken app.”
“Recognized some of my favorites from SF, and appreciated that the executive chef for this location took the time to develop some on-brand dishes that were unique, and still delicious.”
“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.”
“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.”
“I love Izakaya so we had to try the Yakitori Skewers. We ordered the Tebayaki (Chicken wing), Gyu (Beef tenderloin), Buta Bara (Pork belly) and Kinoko (Shiitake mushroom) -everything was cooked to perfection, juicy and tasty! ”
“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!”
“Wagyu, Sea Bass, King Crab, and the Short Rib skewers were phenomenal, giving us the variety we wanted and the flavor we craved. … Mind blowing sushi.. definitely worth the price with such a variety of fish, and the fish tasted so fresh.”
“This has become my favorite spot for lunch on Santana Row. … It’s always very chill here, the atmosphere is calm and of all the restaurants on Santana Row (I’ve been to them all because I work here) they have the best food and the best air conditioning. ”
“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.”
