Ozumo Santana Row is elegant and functional. Our restaurant can be configured to offer a wide choice of spaces perfect for any event from a total buyout, including our outdoor Beer Garden, to a single private room. Large or small, standing or seated, with nearly 20 years experience, we are here to make your event special.

The Spaces

  • Ozumo Buyout

    For any large events, our indoor/outdoor spaces can accommodate up to 150 people for a standing, or 75 for a seated, reception. Create an experience to remember and take advantage of our outside, but sheltered, Beer Garden for a lively evening dance. And don’t forget your sake tasting station in your private Hanabi Room, hand rolls to order from the Sushi Counter and oysters and caviar from our bar.

  • Hanabi Private Dining Room

    Our gorgeous Hanabi Private Dining Room is ideal for private or business parties for up to 10 guests, seated comfortably around a beautiful handcrafted table.

  • Beer Garden

    Outside in the adjoining Atrium so we can enjoy our beautiful California weather! That’s why our Japanese Beer Garden is the perfect place for cocktail parties, baby showers, brunch parties, seated dinners and much more. You imagine it we can surely do it. The Beer Garden has heated lamps, a satellite bar, twinkling bistro lights and a separate entrance to make your outdoor event one for the books.

  • Ishi Kabe Dining

    Our stylish and sophisticated inner Ishi Kabe Dining Area, adjacent to the bar, is a space where you can be in the center of things but also have your own semi private space. The area can be sectioned off in different ways to accommodate up to 30 guests.

  • Dorobo Lounge

    Sip cocktails and nibble on bites from our Otsumami Menu in our Dorobo Lounge. Host lounge parties from 6 to 50 for standing receptions, with our house DJ spinning the hits of the day. Or any other day if you prefer! Our Dorobo Lounge’s modern and sleek decor is perfect for corporate or cocktail parties, mixers, and sake or wine tastings. We can accommodate smaller parties by sectioning off part of the lounge.

  • Sushi Counter – Chef’s Omakase Experience

    Up to eight guests can be seated around our Sushi Counter and enjoy Chef’s Omakase selection prepared in front of you and served by your very own Sushi Chef. Omakase, one of Japan’s most enjoyable dining experiences, means you “entrust” your choice to your chef. No pressure then! Sake pairing is required.

You can choose custom curated menus for any event, in any space. Ozumo’s Sushi, Robata and Izakaya menus are perfectly flexible and easily scaled to suit any occasion. We can assist you in selecting wines and sakes to complement your chosen menu. And of course our Front Of House teams are standing-by to look after your every need.
