    Extensive menu, perhaps too much so. But food preparation was first rate, with good fresh ingredients and interesting dishes. However, the service was mediocre (for example, appetizer plates removed with utensils, but utensils not replaced; dinner wine poured in same glass as aperitif wine glass - but it was a different wine; long delay between serving courses). Restaurant appeared to be understaffed by at least 3 servers. Had a better visit first time, and will try again.

    Came here for a friend's birthday dinner. Had a BALL! The chef was great and very funny. He came in singing and ringing a little bell on his food cart. We had a FAbolous time. Would definitely recommend and I will make this a definite stop on my next trip.

    We live on the island and love to dine at OKKO when we want sushi. This last visit was the usual with great food and service but their A/C was not able to keep up with the scorching temps we've been having this week and it was quite warm in the restaurant. I hope they can get that fixed because we do enjoy the restaurant.

    This was our first trip to OKKO and we are looking forward to many more visits. The food was excellent as was the service. The sushi appetizers were very tasty and well presented. Our entrees' were also very nicely presented and delicious. The wine list was quite extensive with good selections. We liked the décor which was clean, fresh and modern. A very nice dining experience overall.

    My family - which includes a 10 and 14 year old - had hibachi dinner and some sushi. The sushi was outstanding (walker roll and a shrimp tempura roll). The egg drop soup was devoured by both kids as was the miso mushroom. The hibachi chefs are entertaining. If you don't care for too much for a salty taste on the grilled hibachi - let your server and chef know. We are heading back for sushi dining.

    A great experience and meal! We made a reservation for OKKO on the last night of our stay on Hilton Head Island, in hindsight we wish we had visited earlier during our stay! This was the best meal by far that we had during our vacation. We opted for a Hibachi table seat so we could see our food prepared in front of us. Romeo our Hibachi chef was great, very entertaining in addition to be very skilled in the preparation of our food. The Hibachi prepared food was excellent, lobster, steak & sea bass were our choices. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, especially taking part in the Sake competition, watching the tricks with fire and the juggling with lighted batons. If we ever visit Hilton Head Island again we will be returning to OKKO!

    Dined on 8/6/2014
    First off, the Unagi and Cowboy rolls were delicious and easily could have been served at some of the finest sushi restaurants. Unfortunately, in our opinion, the restaurant is trying too hard to be everything for everyone and as a result lacks authenticity. Some items noticed: 1. It is very club-like in design, where you would expect more martini's and loud music; 2. it has a wall of wine that rarely is first choice for sushi fans; 3. It doesn't serve jasmine hot tea (a staple in an Asian restaurant); 4. It sells Japanese, Chinese and Korean fare... perhaps more???; To me you cannot be expert in all cuisines. Think of it as just going out for sushi, but do not expect to be wow'ed. We would go back if having a sushi craving.

    The wait time to get food was way too long. Reservation was for 715, left at almost 945. Appeared to be only 2 hibachi cooks. Maybe 1/2 cup of vegetables served. I was very disappointed in the service. No refills on drinks, I had to ask. Also a manager talked down negatively to our cook right in front of us, very poor decision. However, the sushi was very good!!

    Four of us enjoyed a great evening in Okko's lounge-y digs-- healthy basil rolls, a great sashimi salad, a special roll, general T's chicken and yummy drunken noodles all with perfectly made drinks. Okko is operating at top-form and we hope they will continue to pay attention and maintain their success!

    Okko has two sections, the main dining room which offers a full menu with Japanese, Chinese, Thai options. The other section is a hibachi grill which I have never tried. The sushi is always excellent and I have tried both the sea bass and drunken noodles and have thoroughly enjoyed both. Reservations are highly recommended.

    Enticing sushi menu. Broad offering of specialty eastern dishes (try the Panang Curry or the Walnut Shrimp) escorted by more traditional oriental items. Eat in or take-out. It's a great atmosphere for a romantic dinner but go late so that you're not inundated with vacationing families. Reservations are recommended on the busy weekends. Extensive wine list. Great food. Inexperienced servers. (At least during our last visit.) We live on the Island and have never had stellar service here but it's worth tolerating the service for the food.

    Beautiful upscale restaurant (although most dressed in usual beach spot shirt and shorts), ambience in sushi bar area really cool, ate in the hibachi area, our chef outstanding/entertaining and the food was much better than average. Angry dragon roll something else (appetizer), all sushi nicely presented. This place was spotless. Was little slow this nite, but per regular patron beside our party, was not usually the case. Look forward to returning, outstanding overall

    It's modern and hip design with soft club background music, stainless steel beads border one side of the sushi area, tall ceilings. We ate dinner with our 3 boys, with no complaints. We had their sushi and it was awesome! You will not be disappointed. Note: If you want a Hibachi cook to prepare in front of you, you'll have to reserve a private room. But if not, you can order from the menu and they bring to your table.

    we enjoyed great sushi and good thai main courses at OKKO. Restaurant's main focus is Hibatchi dining. The regular dining area was fully booked so we ate in the lounge area . Despite this, the noise level was fine and service good. Panang curry was good, could have been a little spicier. Red snapper with a tamarind sauce was beautifully presented and tasty. A bit pricey though.

    This is our third time there. We brought a friend and my son who is a waiter at a medium high end restaurant. We waited almost 20 minutes before ANYONE came around after we were seated.. Finally someone took our drink order after my husband complained to a server that no one had been to see us. Though the restaurant was not overly crowded, everything took a long time.. too long. another 10+ minutes for drinks then another 20 for appetizers.. I would think twice before returning which is too bad as we think the food at OKKO is superb.

    We've all been to Japanese steakhouses and experienced the hibachi grill. I expected nothing more. This place was hands down the best steakhouse experience ever! The waiter Martin was hilarious and kept us laughing the whole night. The food was superb. Plus, the sake shot just added to the fun and entertainment. The table next to us was laughing with us and it when it was their turn we did the same. I would just go to Hilton Head to eat there.

    We have looked forward to coming back for an entire year. Happily, I report that if anything, this restaurant has become even better than last year, if that is even possible. JD was our server and he was so attentive and made our visit fun and informed. The food was exceptional. This year we were very impressed with the private dining spaces this restaurant has to offer. Of course, I must mention that the restaurant has an outstanding decor. Plating/Food offerings++ Who needs more ocean view dining when you have this exciting indoor scenery. You will not be disappointed. Thank you OKKO for maintaining your high standards and providing us with a great place to eat wonderful Japanese, Indian and Asian Fusion food...really great.
