Phenomenal service, GREAT food, the sweetest manager that made my friends birthday dinner feel extra special. Highly recommend the Hamachi Carpaccio as a starter to kick it all off!

nice location, view to the city a bit obstructed due to construction on rooftop. but still looks nice.

Food is good, a bit pricey but taste good. I think a bit high due to location.

This was my first visit to O’ku and it did not disappoint! We were early but they were able to accommodate at us at the bar which was socially distanced. The service was amazing, attentive but not overwhelming. The food was outstanding! I’ve told everyone about it that I’ve seen today, absolutely delicious! Good wine list and the desserts did not disappoint! Perfect evening!

Overall it was a wonderful experience! I had the salmon + avocado roll and I was surprisingly disappointed, I order the same thing for the same price at a sushi place near me and it tastes twice as good. The flavor just wasn’t there. The pricing was ok for the quality, I can only speak for the sushi I ate. It took about 30-45 minutes to get our orders which provided enough time for conversation. The energy of this restaurant is a very nice, dark, chill ambiance, a perfect to start your night. The staff was super kind and funny.

Super excited to go to O-Ku to see the rooftop. Made a reservation with an outdoor table request only to find out they only seat reservations inside, bummer! They were out of the first 2 bottles of wine we tried to order so we went with our third choice. They were also out of dumplings on a Saturday night - what! Kind of disappointed with the missing menu items but what we did end up getting was really good. Three of the tuna rolls, miso soup, and edamame.

Reservation does not apply to rooftop tables, which was disappointing as we wanted a rooftop reservation. While the overall service was fair, I felt that not enough was done to keep things sanitary (e.g. tables wiped down using just a wet rag, no visible sanitizing solution or cleaning agent)

We made a reservation for 5pm however the upstairs patio is first come, first serve so we didn't end up needing a reservation after all. Since they open at 5pm we had the choice of seating. Only about 7 tables up there so plan early and accordingly. The view was mainly of the large construction zone they call Howell Mill. I ordered the chicken teriyaki bowl and the food arrived quickly however was not hot. Room temperature at best even though it was supposed to be a hot entree. Food was fresh and tasty though. My friend and I lingered and the waitress seemed a little miffed that we didn't finish our food and leave. We kept ordering drinks so not sure what the problem was. Bathrooms are downstairs and I don't remember seeing an elevator so keep that in mind should you have issues walking steps. Overall, not awful but probably won't be dying to go back.

Great venue and they cater well to a late evening crowd. However, some menu items weren't available. With that said though, it's nice to know they have fresh ingredients arriving frequently.

Phenomenal sushi and experience. We did the chefs multi course dinner. It did not disappoint and was an incredible amount of food. Waiter was fantastic. The food came out a bit slow, but they were busy. If your are doing the course meal expect to be there at least 2+hrs if you want to be there for each course.

We haven’t had sushi in Atlanta since we would regularly go to Miso Izakaya. We have been hesitant because we loved Miso so much but the taste and quality of O-ku was comparable. Very delicious, just a little more expensive. It was very nice sitting outside on the patio and the beer selection was good Although it always blows my mind how much you pay at a restaurant compared to buying at the grocery store.

This is the place you want to celebrate your birthday or go on a date. Smooth and sleek vibes with the right lighting and approach to dining. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly and CLEAN. Dining through the pandemic can be scary but this place goes above and beyond for it's customer. Highly recommend Richard as your server - knowledgeable about drinks and food if you aren't sure what to get. I was spoiled in Miami with excellent dining, but this ATL restaurant has made itself a staple in the city. Make a reservation because it will get busy starting at 7PM.
