B-Day Dinner Recs
I know I *always* bring this place up, so I apologize in advance if I sound like a broken record. But, it's my number one destination choice for great Japanese sushi and dining.

Tsuruhashi would be a great place for a bday party if you had less than 6 in your party I think. I'm not sure they have big tables. They serve japanese/korean bbq where you cook your own meat. They have a kobe beef which melts in your mouth and the outskirt steak is excellent as well. They also have a great kimchi fried rice as well as the bimbimbop is good too. I also like their cold soupy noodles (not sure what that's called). And lastly, they have yuzu sorbet which I love! =) Yum!
This place is in fountain valley off of brookhurst, I believe.
We just celebrated a birthday at Musha's in Santa Monica, it was great! Definately try the mackeral, pumpkin croquettes, braised pork & lobster roll. See my more comprehensive review above.
For 8 items, 4 beers & sake it came to $90 (without tip). It was a lively place, food was amazing and you are walking distance to several bars afterwards.
