Service was great, sushi selection was very limited, I can't say this is a Japanese restaurant, only if you like rolls, they have a big selection of rolls.

The teriyaki chicken was good. But only a little bit for $18!

Our first time at O Ku Atlanta did not disappoint! Service was above and beyond. Every course was a culinary wonder. The butter poached lobster hand rolls and the blue fin toro truffle special brought tears to my eyes! The 3 rolls we had were delightful. The rock shrimp appetizer also was full of flavor and texture that made us sad when the dish was empty! We will be back ASAP.

I love O-Ku. Definitely my favorite sushi spot in Atlanta. Sucks the rooftop view of Atlanta will soon be obscured by high rise apt buildings. *sad face emoji

Terrible terrible service. The food may have been good we just didn't stay long enough to find out. After waiting inordinate time for our table and food, un-welcomed by a very rude hostess, we lay some money on the table and cut our losses.

O-Ku is probably my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. The food is almost supernaturally good—and the attentiveness and intuitive style of the service is world class. Jack, our server, really knows his stuff. Warning: you will put away a shocking amount of food... and it will be worth it!

I’ve been O-Ku several times and all of the times have been good. However, this last time the service was below par. We got our drinks, but never saw our waiter for another 40 minutes. Don’t know the reason. We saw others having their orders taken and even getting their food even before our order was taken. I don’t care what kind of excuse it is, that’s totally unacceptable. Makes me think twice about going back. The only thing that make me want to go back is the food. I would say it’s one of the better place in Atlanta to get good sushi.

We splurged for the Omakase (which is $100 per person) and it was amazing! Our server thoughtfully asked us if there was anything we didn't like, so he could tell the chef and they were able to substitute or switch plates if needed. One of the plates of sashimi had salmon with truffle oil (!)– a combo I had never even dreamt was possible.

Ok used to be one of my FAVORITE sushi places that I would compare even to Umi. After this last experience, I believe the service and quality of food has gone downhill. I've had better sushi at takeout sushi places. My rolls fish even tasted like it had been previously frozen. We also ordered the "balling" pice, which is $16 a piece and they had no truffle on it. Our waiter for got our drinks, but did give them on the house since we were almost finished with dinner when they arrived. I'm not sure I will come back to Oku.

Was expecting an amazing dining experience. We ordered the chefs choice. The food was unremarkable and the sauces were the same for almost every course. The sushi was okay and the appetizers were not that delicious.
We sorely disappointed and will not return. Our waitress was lovely but she could not make up for the food.

I’m not an avid sushi fan, so I’m not the best judge of sushi. However, I was less than impressed with the food here. I didn’t like the house salad (the ginger was way too strong IMO) or the sushi rolls (one tasted like they had used Rice Krispies in it). Bright spot...the drinks were delicious. The service was kind but SO SLOW. Our waiter looked either very confused or very frustrated. It took close to three hours to eat here and we waited about 30 minutes after the food was gone to check out. We went to Umi two years ago. I’m more likely to visit it again. This wasn’t worth the effort.

Rolls are small and they ran out of miso soup. That’s was disappointing. I honestly expected the food to taste better. The ambiance was better than my food.

I always thoroughly love my dining experience here! The host down quickly and politely and my usual server Wilson came by to get my experience started. He let me know he was going home but assured me my server Jack would take great care of me.
They remembered my order from before and already prepared the food and cocktail which I thought was so considerate of them!
I love dining here. Every time I am always treated so well and leave super happy. Thank you to Jack, Wilson, and Minjee for such a great night!
