It was date night for my lady and I. It was an awesome place for this occasion. The crispy rice appetizer was a great choice as well as the Black Magic box roll. Everything was so wonderful and our waitress was spot on with food and drink suggestions. Thanks so much for a great dining experience!

I heard lots of great things about O-Ku, so we decided to go to celebrate a birthday. We went during the week, so it wasn't too busy. We tried some of their cocktails- The Shogun and Paper Crane and really enjoyed them. We only got sushi rolls, we tried Mt. Fuji, Tuna Crunch and Baja California. They were all really good, but the Baja California was my favorite, just enough spice. I will definitely go back again.

I had dined at O-Ku in Charleston and loved it.. Unfortunately my Atlanta experience didn’t come close.

We dined on a Sunday night, it took 2 hours to get our food. We were served two free apps (in addition to what we ordered) as we waited.

The nigiri flight was fish on rice, no wasabi, no flavors.. a far cry from the flight I enjoyed in Charleston.

I’d heard so many good things about the place and after my Charleston experience was greatly disappointed.

Save your time and your money... there are far better Sushi options in Westside.. one is just down the road from this one.

The food was exceptional - the best sushi we have had in Atlanta. Our server Julian made the night very special despite how busy it was and went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of all evening. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone local or visiting.

I asked for the most fun server and best table. We were stuck in a corner by the back door. Not so appealing. Service was slow. Loved our server Zoe, so not sure why items were forgotten and drinks were super slow with having to ask the second time.

The location in West Midtown is great and we appreciated the valet service given we were running 10 minutes behind our reservation time. The staff was attentive and our server was knowledgeable in the differences between the numerous varieties of fish on the menu. The fish, however, was lacking in flavor and texture for us. Full disclosure: we're visiting Atlanta from the Pacific Northwest where we're spoilt with access to 5-star sushi from Seattle to Vancouver, British Columbia.

This place is a must for anyone who enjoys otoro and uni. They really knock it out of the park with the otoro spoons, creme de la creme, and fresh wasabi. Their rolls are also good, but it is really for those who enjoy the fatty tuna. Not many places in Atlanta like it.

We requested outdoor seating to only find out our reservation didn’t apply to the rooftop. Didn’t expect a 45 minute wait for a milestone celebration. Website should be updated to let customers know what to expect. Everyone who came was as surprised as we were.

Oku is always excellent, highly recommend the salmon appetizer and lobster box sushi. All the cocktails are wonderful.

Lately though they’re a bit understaffed, but I’m sure this will correct over time.

The hostess accommodated our party right away. The waitress Brittany did not smile but was pleasant. We asked the meaning of O-Ku and she did not know nor seemed interested in trying to find out the answer. We googled the answer & told her but she was not really care. The sushi rolls were good but the crispy rice was not very tasty. The drinks were very pretty good.

They were very under staffed. We had to wait to sit for almost 30 min, even thought we had a reservation. Food took forever, and waiter wasn’t very attentive. Usually my experience here is really good and the food is usually great, but this time my food tasted like it had been sitting out for a while. I was disappointed with this latest experience contrary to my many other times I have been.

O-ku exceeded my expectations! It was my birthday and they went above and beyond to make me feel special. The food was PHENOMENAL. As a huge sushi fan, I can truly say this is the best place I’ve been to (& I’ve lived in Chicago, and LA). I highly recommend the Uni. It was imported from Japan the night I went and it melts in your mouth. I also had the dumplings, rainbow roll, and black magic roll. Very friendly staff. Wonderful all around :)

Each O-Ku location I have been to has outstanding customer service. Each person you interact with makes it a point to remember personal details. They go above and beyond with the hospitality.
