    Really delicious omakase experience on the roof outside. Covered roof which they opened once the rain stopped. Wait staff was friendly, very attentive, and knowledgeable about the food. Music levels were low enough for easy conversation. I would change the glossy black tables bc they show every speck of dirt, and add a couple fans on the roof - the air was hot humid and still. Breeze would have helped.

    Valet was easy and a good price. Our waitress was very sweet. The dumplings were phenomenal! My miso soup wasn’t hot but flavorful. Our rolls were awesome! I expected a little more from The O-Kurrr but still good. The chicken teriyaki needed a little more flavor as well. But portions were really good.

    We made reservations at 8:30 pm not knowing the restaurant closed at 9pm. Honestly I wouldn’t have done that if I knew but nothing was good. The drinks tasted like water and I haven’t had a drink in months. I hate I’m having to leave this review because this is one of my favorites!!!! I’m going to charge it to the restaurant closing at 9pm.

    As far as ambiance goes there's not much to talk about. The food was good but would have expected much more for the price we paid. The quality of the food wasn't enough to make up for the rest of the experience. Non-food related comments: -the menus were stained and dirty - some of out plates were dirty - one of us didn't get chopsticks - the happy hour prices are not posted anywhere so you have to ask the waiter about every single item - wait staff not overly friendly or attentive - the upstairs patio is not air conditioned at all, there's not even a fan We won't be back.

    We enjoyed our evening on the rooftop however because it was raining off and on they kept closing and then opening the rooftop. It would have been better if they had kept it closed. Our server was very nice however I think they were short-staffed because our food took a long time to arrive and they forgot to deliver one of the appetizers. Anyway ,the ambiance was fantastic and overall it was a nice experience.

    The portion of Omakase is quite big. I had to take something back home by the end. I really like two appetizers, the Nigiri and Rib. Cocktails are good. Service is great and the Chef is really friendly.

    My wife and I went to O-Ku for our 25th wedding anniversary. We love sushi and were looking for a low-key place to celebrate. The good: The food was excellent. From the appetizers to the sushi rolls, everything was flavorful and fresh. The cocktails were also unique and tasty. Our server was very kind and offered us some unique saki at the end of the meal in recognition of our anniversary. The saki was very good and, unlike any I've ever had, was a bit sweet with a distinct floral finish. The "could be better": The wait time once seated was much too long. While I didn't time it, it seemed to be about 20 minutes between ordering our drinks and them arriving. The time to start receiving our food order was delayed in a similar way. While we didn't mind too much (it gave my wife and me time to talk), we were both starving so it was noticeable. I assume this was a result of being understaffed. Overall, it was a good experience and we would consider visiting again.

    The servers were friendly and the space was nice. The food was mediocre. The soup was lukewarm and the rolls were just okay. I do suggest trying the “Don’t Chai Me”. It was a delicious, nonalcoholic blend!

    Had dinner with friends we haven’t seen in ages. Ordered pretty bunch everything on the menu and it was all delicious. The service was the best part. The server mentioned up front that the kitchen was a little slow, which it was, but every one was so helpful and happy it didn’t bother us. We will definitely go back.

    While the quality of the sushi was generally very good and our waiter was friendly, the overall service was dreadfully slow. Additionally, when we got to our table the water glasses were cloudy and stained (seems like low finishing liquid from their dishwasher or something) and the decroative limbs on top of the partition next to our table were covered in dust which was blowing around in the air moved by the airconditioning. Overall, I'd recommend the sushi but I would not likely eat here again.
