Great ambiance. Sushi samplers are fantastic !
The food was outstanding. My out-of-town friend was blown away by the quality and flavors and thanked me for ruining all other sushi for her.
Our first time at Baku, and it was a wonderful dining experience. A great menu, with excellent service and ambiance. Highly recommend if you enjoy this type of cuisine.
Very good food. Good atmosphere. Friendly staff. Pricey.
Fish is high quality and prepared to perfection. You will not be disappointed. Excellent.
2nd time here and needless to say it doesn’t disappoint. both times the servers we had were amazing, food delicious (filet specifically is so good). definitely will be coming back soon.
The meal was delicious and our waiter, Devin, was very attentive. We’ll be back!
Excellent service and food as always!!!
Wonderful experience, great service, lovely date with my sweet husband!
Our experience was really good, as always !
Drinks took 30 mins to arrive. Three bartenders but slow as heck. Every drink order took an eternity. Food was just ok. Any sushi place would do better. Way too expensive for mediocre food. Menu is confusing, items don’t reflect what you actually get. Brussel sprouts burnt. Half the dinner order was forgotten and arrived after server had cleared the table and given us our check. Ridiculous. Server has no clue.
Awesome as always
They brought a birthday dessert without even being asked because the server heard that it was my birthday!
Great experience for our first time!!
Excellent Food and Excellent Service..can’t wait to go back!
Haven’t been In years, it was better than expected. Very happy it’s back in the rotation.
Nice date vide. Soft lighting and music. Exclusive
Best sushi I’ve been had in my life (not being dramatic)
All the food was AMAZING! Alex was our server and he was attentive, friendly and very knowledgeable. This was our first time, but definitely not our last.
Our server was amazing. He was so helpful with picking drinks and food options. Will definitely return.
Family dinner for a birthday. Great food, drinks, atmosphere. Sushi was amazing. Service excellent! Pricey but an awesome special event place!
Sushi is always top notch. Service was outstanding.
The foodie in me was very satisfied with this experience. We took a while to figure out what we were going to eat (menu set up wasn’t my fav) but settled upon sharing small cold and hot plates which let us eat the perfect amount. The small plates makes this place a 1on1 experience whether that be for a date or besties night out. I throughly enjoyed myself and will suggest to others
One of my fave restaurants in CLT! Delish food.
Fantastic service and the sashimi on ice was amazing as was the maki and really all the appetizers!!
Very expensive for what you get. Everything is a-la-cart. With very small portions for everything. Be prepared to pay excessive for items you would normally pay less then half for. Nice vibe though. Great atmosphere. Food was good.
We had an amazing evening at Baku. There wasn’t anything we ordered that we didn’t like. I highly recommend the salmon belly nigiri, it was absolutely delicious. The whole experience was well worth the 1.5 hour drive for my birthday. 10/10.
Chose Baku for a date night. It was a great choice! The service was terrific and the food was even better. Highly recommend!
Fantastic food. Ashley was great!!!
The food is incredible! The menu selections are not only beautiful works of art but the flavors are exceptional. Sarah, the sommelier was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She guided us through the impressive sake selection. This restaurant is one you MUST try in Charlotte.
Food and service were both amazing
Great first experience. Been to Yama plenty, and absolutely love that place. Baku is definitely awesome for a special occasion. All the food was really good.
Everything was amazing! Excellent wine menu. We'll definitely be back
Good quality fish. Sides are overpriced. Edamame was horrible. Food overall was very good.
Appetizers were delicious, sashimi was very fresh and decent size. Cod was very tasteful but quite small for the price. Service was good and the restaurant was immaculate. The QR code menu in the phone was tough to use, really could use paper menus. It was pricey ($150 for 2) but really good
Food and service were excellent.
Baku did not disappoint! To name several - the salmon tasting, the spicy filet, fried rice, the Rosemary smoked otoro nigiri and the wild mushroom pot was ALL delicious. Our server Drew was knowledgeable and personable and made great recommendations. We could not get enough of the Tokyo old fashioned and the lychee martinis either. The only thing that was “just okay” was the Keylime pie as it seemed like one you might get anywhere and the yuzu flavor did not punch through. However the beignets were delightful and a great way to finish the meal. Will definitely return!
Went for my hubby's bday and the staff were wonderful and made his bday dinner wonderful as well, sushi is always great, drinks are great, it's or go to for sushi and for just a lovely date night.
Devin took very good care of us as for all the staff.
