The appetizers were had were fantastic, but that wasn't the reason we went. The sushi was average at best. Our first order arrived quick! After we finished that we ordered two more rolls but waited 48 minutes before they arrived out. No one came to the table to say anything for 35 minutes. Once we caught the waiters attention he told us that because of happy hour, they were running behind in the kitchen. We didn't complain. They provided us a free appetizer, which was really nice and unexpected. Service overall seemed inconsistent. When we arrived it was empty and we were only there with two other people. It did pick up but the person I came with was a frequent visitor and was upset they didn't give us fruit with our water or fold her napkin when she was gone. Per her, we were really getting a sub-par experience. It was a gift certificate from her to me, so she was disappointed that her referral was falling flat.
The setting is nice and dark -we were looking for this-. The food was good and delish once it actually came out. This is my only complain, the dishes would come at random and sometimes after a long while. It took so long at times that we kept ordering more food thinking we didn’t as we were very hungry. At the end, we ordered so much they even missed some of the items, yet they try to charge us for them. The drinks were very good, no hot sake though.
We had hesitation about going back because our first experience was not good. The restaurant itself was good but the valet was downright rude and soured the whole experience. But this time was a great experience. The food was good. Our waiter was excellent. All in all a good night.
Wonderful service and wonderful food!
Our new sushi go-to place. Quality is excellent.
The food presentation was fantastic and the sashimi spot on. The Chilean Uni was amazing! But the Lobster hand roll became one of my new favorites.
Always amazing and we played roulette with the menu and allowed the server to pick our courses. Creme de la creme is a must.
Great service, vibe, and food. Will definitely come back when they offer Half price rolls on Mondays
Everything was good, decently priced, waitress was very knowledgeable
Quality Asian food with a great wine list. The tuna appetizer was amazing. Modern and fun scene!
Excellent service and ambiance. Will definitely return.
Service was a little slow because they were packed but aside from that everything was awesome !!!!! Their manager was very friendly and welcoming !!!!!!
We’ve been here a few times and it’s been getting worse and worse as they increase in size as a company. Salmon appetizer was pretty good, but very small portion for the cost. The Urchin had turned. It was bad, we decided to stop eating that for safety. The rolls were ok, but some neglect in details as we had shells scattered through some of them. Our waitress seemed annoyed with us. Cocktails were perfectly fine. Ambiance is always great there. Unfortunately, I can no longer recommend this place or visit again. That’s how becoming a chain works I guess.
Sushi was the best I have tastes and the shrimp appetizer was delicious
I always love to come eat at OKU!!!
Every time I come to dine, I feel so welcome and excited to dine.
Of course, I miss my favorite server Wilson - but Wilson 2.0 was wonderful when we dined with him.
Top notch service and world class sushi! Cant wait to return!
Went on a date to O-Ku with my wife and we both had an absolutely wonderful time. The service was outstanding and the food was incredible. We plan on returning and bringing our friends too.
Delicious food and amazing service. One of my favorite spots in town for sushi and definitely one of the best happy hours!
We had a dinner date of
Three couples and were excited about the experience. However, the service was terrrrible! Everyone’s order did not come out together and the food was just okay.
Love this place. Great food, great service. Thank you O-Ku and especially Victoria!
Great relaxing time on Sunday afternoon. The Hamachi Carpaccio was incredible as was the nigiri selection we had. Great finishing on the fish. Presentation was above standard.
Great cocktails with very good food overall.
Great food, great service! Server made wonderful recommendations. Chef's choice was perfect and generous. Sake menu was varied, and it was fun to try new sakes. Dessert was outstanding! Kudos to the pastry chef!!
The service was 1st class and the food was great. My husband and I have been to the restaurant a couple of times, so we thought this would be a great experience for our nine guest and is was a wonderful! You now have nine more people that will go back to the restaurant.
Great food and server had very good expertise!!
Great menu and specialty drinks!
Food, service, staff were all great!
Impeccable service. They go out of their way to be accommodating. Really great customer service the entire evening. I noted a food allergy in my reservation, and when we got there they provided us with a special menu and offered to walk us through any items on the menu that could be modified for the allergy. All of the food and drinks were very good. Can't wait to go back!
Great experience. Great service. Delicious food
So yummy! Jack was a great server and let me change my order after I realized it was SO spicey!!
Amazing meal, 2nd visit won’t be my last for sure. Loved the yellowtail carpaccio & the salmon appetizer. I will say I ddI not enjoy their rolls, I prefer the sashimi & nigiri whether is raw or aburi (seared) it is melt in your mouth phenomenal!!! The salmon belly, tuna belly, scallop, wagu ....no matter what you choose you will not be disappointed!!!!
I feel like no other sushi restaurant compares!
O-Ku happy hour continues to impress. The drinks are unique and the half-price rolls are a great deal. The dumpling special app was delicious and the matcha chocolate dessert is good but the portion is small for a hefty price. Servers are knowledgeable and recommendations were spot on. Lemon, lime, and cukes for the water is a nice touch. Wait time once order is placed can be a while. Looking forward to another visit and exploring more of the menu!
If you’re gluten free - this is the sushi experience you want! They have gf soy sauce and know their ingredients well. Absolutely amazing and delicious! The half price sushi on Monday was so fun - we ordered everything on the menu and had a great time.
Cool environment, good drinks, mediocre sushi
The restaurant was mediocre at best
Birthday Dinner for our 21 year old. The food is always amazing and the service was exceptional. Our waiter took great care even bringing his favorite for us to try free if charge. He was very polite and helpful through out our entire experience
The music is deafening (bordering on ridiculous) in this place and for the price point I expected the ambiance to be a little more refined. Our server or the kitchen lost our order. To be fair, our server was over-taxed with too many tables. Not his fault. There was nearly an hour gap between app and main order.
But the sushi was UNBELIEVABLE!!!! Otherwise I would not come back. But the fish was so good that I can’t wait to come back.
We really enjoy O-Ku and their happy hour. It takes some time because they are making a lot of rolls. Last night was the first night I felt like they were “skimping” on fresh fish on sushi rolls. Some of mine were missing ingredients all together. I still will continue to visit. It’s very loud so don’t plan on having any quiet conversations here. Service is always great.
Awesome first experience! The drinks and sushi were bomb!
The food and customer service from Jack and Jamaal was exceptional!
