The restaurant looks a bit worn down. The table, chairs and floors were sticky. Our food tasted delicious but the black cod had a ton of bones in it which wasn't fun to pick out. The desserts were wonderful. The price of the food is slightly above average for what it was. Our servers were pleasant and the service was good. We would return but feel that we can find sushi equally high priced in a more updated venue.
Food and service were great. The drinks weren’t very strong and it felt like the air conditioning was not on as it was a bit warm in the restaurant.
Great service, great food, love the atmosphere.
Just did a "surprise me" omakase, but they let me set my own budget! Good for the most part, really loved the posters with melon and ponzu, plus the imported uni and the snapper tasting.
Best sushi in charlotte.
Hadn't been there for awhile and was happy with meal and service!
Wonderful service throughout. Food was beautifully prepared and presented. Prices reflect similar quality in the area and are mid-high but worth it.
Baku is a favorite of ours, but the bar takes forever to make even the simplest drinks. It’s a shame that the bar is a consistent problem and bottleneck in what is otherwise a fantastic dining experience with a chic vibe. Be sure to order the “rice krispy” appetizer- it’s amazing!!
The wagyu was amazing
I really enjoyed Baku. We recently moved to Charlotte and this is the best sushi we’ve had so far. It was pricey- more like NYC pricing that CLT - and I thought some of the dishes were overwrought. That seems to be the trend for Charlotte sushi though so maybe I’m just out of touch. The service was excellent. The noise level was ok early on a Saturday night.
Everyone from the hostess, to the waitstaff and the manager were extremely pleasant and professional. The waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu. Food was delicious as well.
Excellent food but a bit expensive compared to similar level places.
Great date-night, girls-night, anything-night spot. The food was amazing and the dessert was yummy!!
The service was amazing, the ambience was perfect. The food was good— but not great:(
Great service and excellent quality sushi and drinks. However, it is a little overpriced. For the price everything should be perfect but the Korean ribs were over cooked. So disappointing!
Nigiri sushi was excellent. All other dishes mediocre/OK. Overpriced for the overall quality of the food. Tapas style, but still small portions even for tapas. All 4 people in my party were disappointed. Not bad, it was decent fare, but didn't meet high expectations. Much better sushi or Asian cuisine restaurants out there for the price.
Talking with the server the weekends tend to be a more energetic vibe - we went on a Saturday - and weekdays tend to be a little more relaxed.
The food was amazing, the drinks were well made, and the service was wonderful.
Excellent food and great service! Tables were spaced apart appropriately and servers wore masks.
Nick is a great bartender - we love sitting at the bar for dinner. He remembers our favorite drinks and dinner orders! Highly recommend!
We love Baku! Great experience every time. Best crispy rice. Love the salmon belly nigiri!
Fabulous food and service! I can’t wait to come back.
It was wonderful. Our waitress was excellent. The food was delicious!! Great experience.
Low key. Classy vibe. Definitely underrated. Highly recommend.
By far the best low key luxury restaurant. Took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we never been so we really didn’t know what to expect for sure but he was so amazed and happy with my choice.
Excellent sushi and sashimi that can be made to order. Tuna is always fresh and melts in your mouth. If you go, ask for Natasha as your server. All are good but she will make your experience 100%.
Fun spot, and the food adds to the smiles. We were sat in front of the sushi bar on the main floor and felt like we were on a busy street with people walking around us so much. Try to consider your placement in the building when they seat you if you have that opportunity. Our server was really well versed and fun to include in our evening...
We had fantastic service! The wine was amazing! The food was really good. I thought the sushi was similar to a number of other high end sushi restaurants in Charlotte.
This is one of the most enjoyable restaurants I’ve ever been to in my life. And I eat out a lot.
Everything was wonderful, we just had a passing in the family and was looking for the perfect place to have some sushi and drinks and it was even better then i could have imagined. Nicole our server was super sweet and took great care of use very good understanding of the menu. She was great especially since we were one of the last tables there. Somewhere i will deffiantly be back over the years. The Absolute most Fresh Fish you could ever ask for. I had a wonderful time talking to Drew as well very kind. Entire staff was wonderful. People always ask me your going to spend that much on dinner and the answer is no i spent it on a memory i will never forget everything exceeded our expectians and we will deffinatly be back
Absolutely recommend 10/10. Service is top notch, the manager checked in with us twice. And drinks are delicious and strong! The dishes are small but delicious.
Awesome!! Great venue!!
Incredible as always. Beautiful space and great music
Server was welcoming and prompt. The food is consistent high quality. Hot when it comes to the table and beautiful presentation. Our sushi came out on a unique bamboo wooden platter.
Great food in a romantic setting
My wife and I have been to Baku on multiple occasions, we’ve always have a pleasant experience- and our last visit was very pleasant as well- the COVID-19 restrictions are well appreciated, excellent atmosphere, food quality worth the price, great service , great margaritas!
I gave 4 stars on the ambience because of the music. We enjoyed our food and our server was great, but we couldn't help but notice the terrible music that was playing. This is considered a higher-end restaurant and for them to play a radio station full of tik tok hits and one-hit wonders from the 2000s is a weird move on their part.
Our waitress was amazing, very friendly and attentive.
