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.
Ashley was a great server and food was excellent
Food was fantastic, but took far too long to get to us. Restaurant wasn’t busy, so not sure of the reason why.
Love the abundance of small dishes that we can share... everything was excellent- although the Korean ribs weren’t the usual for some reason- really terrific and didn’t feel gross after !
Dinner was amazing. The food was delicious and our server made sure we had a great first experience. Will definitely be going back soon!
Great Anniversary / Date night with the wife. Small plate options at the finest, for trying lots of great food. The pork belly appetizer, spicy Hamachi crispy rice and scallops were all great. Caitlyn was the most attentive and helpful server for our 1st but not last time at Baku.
We haven't been in years but what a delightful experience. Exceptional food and service. The Kingu Kani roll was fantastic and all of the small dishes we tried were as well. We will definitely be going back sooner than later!
Never disappointed! Food was wonderful and they have killer drinks as well.
Ashley was amazing! Always pleasant and on point with service! As always, Baku never disappoints with their food. Have been here several times and have been extremely satisfied each time.
Thank you Sara for coming by and saying hi!
Our salad and scallops were delicious. We had outstanding service and had a quiet booth.
Great anniversary dinner
Would not recommend. Service was sub par, felt judged and rushed. Food is overpriced, 37 for a cod tapas? Will not go back
The food was great. The waitress was enthusiastic which I loved! She made great recommendations. Check out other reviews at @whereweeatinclt
Wonderful dinner with my family here. We've been many times over the years and have never been let down.
Baku is 2 for 2 with me. Great vibe. Great food.
Awesome experience. Highly recommend Baku to all people!
The food was really good. The biggest downside is that the menu online did not match the menu that they have at the location. Overall, this is a hidden gem!
Great service, awesome sushi, and delicious tomahawk steak!
I've been to Baku a couple of times and was always wowed by the food (the crispy brussell sprouts are the best anywhere) but my meal was not as fresh and tasty as usual especially for the price. What stands out is the service, our waiter and I can't remember his name, was fabulous. I will always recommend Baku though, I'm sure it was just an off night.
Food was very good, server not very knowledgable about menu. Not a surprise given these weird
covid times. Pricey.
Spent a few hundred dollars each time and left starving. When they say small plates they mean SMALL… went back about 4 times to give it a try. Left disappointed and hungry every single time. It’s a shame it’s so close to my house. Great Atmosphere, and great service and great drinks.!
Robatayaki Filet was perfect! Every bit tasted like the first!
The food was delicious. Our server was excellent. The first two rounds of dishes came shortly after we ordered. But after we ordered the third round we waited and waited. The server came by several times and asked if we were okay and said she would check on the food. After 20-25 minutes the food finally came, the server apologized (not her fault), but we never did find out what the problem was. All in all it was a very nice evening, and my son (whose birthday we were celebrating) was very happy. We will definitely go there again.
