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’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!”
“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.”
“I genuinely enjoyed my Izakaya dinner in Ozumo. The food is fresh and well/presented.”
“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.”
“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! ”
“Danny the manager was super knowledgeable when I couldn’t decide on the sake. For all those sake lovers.. he knows his stuff.”
“Our server Brian OHMAN. Always so helpful when we dining here and especially when we were drinking. Pretty sure we made a scene but he made our night one hell of a time.”
“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.”
“If your there during brunch they offer bottomless mimosas for $18. The brunch menu also features a yummy dish with cold noodles, raw egg and shredded beef topped with pickled unions. This was amazing and shareable if you order other items. We split one order between 4 adults and there was plenty to go around.”
