    Celebrated my son's birthday there, and they gave us a complimentary sashimi plate and dessert. The waitress was very friendly. Their salmon sashimi and otoro are to die for!! We'll be back.

    I heard good things about O-Ku and it lived up to its reputation. The sushi was excellent and we took the server’s advice to try a different dish for the nigiri instead of the tono. It was scrumptious. The Persimmon dessert was delicious and the whiskey and sake selections were excellent. Can’t wait to go back.

    O-Ku ran out of parking in the back area and the valet was slammed so we ended up having to park somewhere and our car got booted! We would’ve loved this experience so much more if the restaurant told us where fo get additional parking and help us navigate being in west midtown because it was not a fun experience whatsoever

    Love that they have mocktails - loved the ginger pineapple! Their box sushi was really amazing, particularly the Black Magic - we asked for light rice so as not to fill up too much. The rock shrimp were divine!

    Our service was stellar, the fish was superb (uni was particularly fresh), and we were gifted a hamachi appetizer which was a nice surprise. The place was bustling on a Saturday night but everyone was very attentive. We are grateful to the team for hosting us given some snafus which occurred on our last visit.

    For a first time customer, I was really hopeful but left disappointed. The food arrived 1 hour and 20 mins after being seated. Our waiter went above and beyond realizing the experience was less than stellar. He apologized for the long wait, offered us free appetizers while we waited and even brought us free dessert. Once the food, my sushi (Mt Fuji) was pretty good but my friends salmon was raw in the middle, they clearly rushed it. The asst general manager eventually comped our meal and urged us to return, so I may give them another chance but never expected it would be that bad for a sushi restaurant. Really surprised.

    The food, the ambiance, the staff is all top tier. I recommend after a long day at work, especially Mon & Wed 5-7 (happy hour undefeated), with a group of friends, for a date, with family etc. One of the newer drinks, Wasabi, is my favorite. I love the follow the yellow brick road, tuna crunch and miso soup (yes even the miso soup, they do it right!) 20/10…they didn’t pay me or offer a free meal for this review but if they see it I’ll take a follow the yellow brick road🤣🤣.

    We had an excellent time at O-Ku. My boyfriend and I celebrated our two year anniversary and we had a fantastic time. Our waitress was fantastic, as was all of the staff. We had excellent service as well as excellent food including the desert, I would recommend the mochi. I would highly recommend this restaurant overall and I look forward to going back!

    We are originally from Hawaii and have been missing quality sushi since moving to ATL. We found this place while looking for a good sushi spot to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. We are so glad we chose O-Ku! Our server, V, was amazing! She was so sweet and made our anniversary so special. The food was so incredible! We ordered a lot and even ended up ordering two rolls to go (Shrimp Tempura Spider Roll and a Black Magic Roll), both were equally delicious! We will definitely be returning to get our sushi fix.

    I took my mom and sister here last night as their Christmas gift, and we had the best experience. Our waiter, Richard, was top notch and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and gave some great recommendations. He even brought us an extra appetizer and dessert to try! The food was beyond delicious and the presentation was amazing. It’s definitely a pricey meal, but with raw fish you get what you pay for. Worth every penny. I truly do not have enough good things to say about dining here last night.

    Excellent food. I will definitely be back just for the crispy rice. Service was slow and our server forgot to enter our entree but the manager was very friendly and worked hard to rectify the oversight. I would highly recommend it. One note to management though. The choice of music was not great. The ambiance gives a lounge/date night feel which we loved but listening to pop music (Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Meghan Trainor, etc) was weird and definitely didn't match the vibe/ambiance.

    We love oku ! This visit they were packed and by the looks of it short staffed . Was told kitchen was behind so order asap. Then one app came out almost immediately. It had been sitting in the window for a while. Brought to waitress attention and she handled it well. Will come back on a slower night. Normally our experiences are all good. Didn’t really see a manager either.
