    The only thing that was frustrating was the host team confirming our reservation 3 separate times. I confirmed the reservation via text, then was called the day of the reservation and was left a voicemail that asked us to call them back if we were still intending to come?? So I called back to confirm the reservation a second time. Then 5 minutes before our reservation I received a call asking us if we were still coming as we were giving our car to the valet... I didn't see a note on the reservation saying to get there early? Other than this, the meal was perfect. Our server, Jane, was fantastic and the food was incredible.

Looking forward to dining here again when we are back in town, or when the restaurant opens near our home in Tampa! You all are the best! Much love!

    O-ku has wonderful sushi! Out server, Brittany, went above and beyond for our daughters birthday. Super friendly, a complimentary appetizer and mochi for dessert! Amazing. It is SO COLD inside, so prepare for that!! Otherwise a wonderful spot with great food.

    I always love dining at O-ku. They're great about gluten-free and have a separate printed, gluten-free menu. They even have gluten-free soy sauce. I love the hamachi carpaccio, the truffle salt edamame, and marble roll. We celebrated my Mom's birthday and they brought out some mochi ice cream for everyone. I also like how their dessert menu changes. Each time I've gone (this is my 3rd time) there's always been something different. This time I tried the gluten-free japanese strawberry sando, and it was delicious! Our waitress was super friendly and informed me of all of the gluten-free options, plus other items that could be made gluten-free that weren't already on the gluten-free menu.

    The food was really good especially the box sushi which we had never tried before and was a standout! Highly recommend. Our server, Felicia, was great. Only negatives were that the miso soup was cold and that I think the rooftop could use a little spruce up and some decor. Maybe some plants and color. The downstairs is so beautiful and the rooftop is just drab from a design perspective. Overall great time and great food and drinks.

    Incredible experience from the moment we walked in until we stepped out for the night. The staff went absolutely above and beyond, making for an unforgettable birthday dinner for my brother, father, and me. It was a unique occasion for us all to get together and the staff were so kind, so attentive, and truly made us feel special. The food was absolutely amazing from taste to presentation. The unique takes on classics to their own special combinations, I wish I could go back and try everything on the menu. Cannot thank everybody enough for a very memorable evening!

    O-Ku never misses, and this restaurant is literally my favorite place in Atlanta. My fiance and I were celebrating our Birthdays and Joe and Jazmine really made this birthday special for us. We were greeted by Joe, who is always super friendly and inviting. He also added beautiful flowers to the table due to the occasion. Our waitress, Jazmine, was also super friendly and knowledgeable and added the final touches to a perfect date night/celebration. As always, thanks for the great time =D

    O-Ku is a fan favorite for my fiancé and I. We diner here once a quarter or so. Food is always great!!! This time around, our server must have been new, so can't fault her too much for that. But items weren't cleared from the table timely, and some orders were a little off (meaning incorrect). Of course we will dine here again, but a little disappointed this time around.

    O-Ku delivered some really awesome sushi, but the delivery itself was less than stellar. Valet on a Saturday night was a nightmare- took about 15 minutes to turn off Howell Mill until I walked inside. Once seated they forgot to bring us a drink menu. Waiter was friendly, made good suggestions, gave us an appetizer on the house. All of it was really good. We ordered a couple rolls afterwards, which took a while to come out as the kitchen got backed up (maybe 20-30 minutes.) They did bring us out some edamame for free as an apology. My wife ordered a wine with dinner which never came. Bathroom was pretty gnarly. They didn't look very busy (it wasn't packed by any means), but the service and ambiance kind of seemed like it. I'd give it another go, but if the service was the same I'd say it's not worth the $200 price tag and the valet hassle.
    O-Ku - AtlantaResponded on March 26, 2024
    hi Andrew we are very sorry that the dinner fell short. We will definitely step up our bathroom cleanliness. As our dining room was quite mellow, our rooftop was completely packed that night. All of our sushi chef are trying their best to push out the food as fast as they able to, and most days it does take 20-30minutes. I am also very sorry about the wine, I will talk to your server to make sure we step up the service. Beside the valet, there is Interlock parking deck that you can park at if you want to avoid the valet line. I will also bring up this issue to our valet manager. We appreciate your candid response as it is what pushes us to do better every day. My name is Fatini, and let me know next time you're coming in.

    This was an amazing experience. My husband and I went for our 1 year anniversary and the staff made sure our experience was incredible. They brought over some bubbles for us to celebrate and were super attentive the entire night. Even when our food took slightly longer the manager immediately came over to apologize! The sushi was so fresh and the appetizers were amazing. We will definitely be back again!
