I love O-Ku and the wait staff. Linda is absolutely amazing, kind, professional, and always makes me feel welcome and very special. Whether you eat on the rooftop or inside, the ambiance is always fabulous. I brought a friend who had never been and the only thing he liked better than the beautiful evening Atlanta skyline was the Frose'. I can't recommend this place highly enough. Never disappointed

We got the same waiter we had exactly 2 years before when we went for my birthday. He made wonderful suggestions and everything was delicious! We had a slight delay with our dinner being ready so they provided an appetizer on the house to tide us over. Absolutely phenomenal experience all around.

Fish was fresh yet possessed less than the wow factor for me. Drinks were less creative and tasty than I have experienced at other venues. Service was delightful and friendly.

We ordered the dragon and black widow rolls in addition to the chef's selection of hamachi. The fish was thin enough you could see thru it......very disappointing! We came in specifcally for the black cod and glass noodles and they didn't have any.....btw, we arrived at 5:30pm....no excuse.

We sat at the rooftop, which was nice. First come first serve. We had drinks and some sushi as well as an appetizer. It was good but not the best in Atlanta. We have eaten at the Charleston location and it was great. Great spot for date night, or girls night!

Great location, excellent service and exceptional food. Second time visit after getting my wife to try real sushi 🍣 vs just rolls. Our server (Jack) provided excellent recommendations and our server from our first visit recognized us and cane by our table. This exceptional service and quality food will have us back again and again.

Great food and excellent staff. It was just freezing. I know you probably have to keep it cold bc of the sushi but I was painfully cold even w a jacket on. It was actually distracting from the food. Everything else was great!

Our good, as usual was great. Our service from Justin however, left a lot to be desired. Communication was poor, service slow, orders incomplete or forgotten. At one point I had to walk to the kitchen to get an update.

I went here with my boyfriend on Friday night. I made reservations a few days before and was able to get us spots at the counter. The ambiance was trendy but casual. We were seated right away. Our server, Robert, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and recommendations. We had nigiri, several rolls and their fried oysters. Everything was fantastic and tasty. They have a good wine/drink menu. The only downside is that we tried to go to the rooftop bar after finishing our meal, but it was packed. Overall, service and food was excellent and we would definitely come back again .

Me and my best friend celebrate all of our special occasions at O-Ku. We love to eat here and always enjoy our evening. Wilson is always our server, and he is spectacular. He takes care of us and the general manager, Linda, was so nice!
We loved our sushi - we love amaebi, creme de la creme, kani truffle, ottoro, and more.
We'll be back when we're celebrating next!

Our experience at O-Ku was excellent. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was delicious. We got a number of sushi rolls and a few appetizers and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I especially recommend the spicy yellowtail crunch. We will be back!

A dark, warm ambiance fills the air as you walk in. The seating arrangements are well done. I was fond of the menu on the board. Noise level was quite loud, making it difficult to hear sometimes. Service was good. Our waiter was away for quite awhile before returning at profusely apologizing for his absence. He was gracious enough to offer us a free appetizer, which was excellent. My only real gripe was the main course of sushi. It was good, but didn't blow my mind. There was just not enough flavor in the sushi.

Have been many times, however on this visit the service was very poor. The kitchen was obviously backed up, however we watched several tables who were seated after our party be served before us. We asked to speak to a manager and had to seek them out as the request was never answered. The food is always good but, on this night the poor service made this visit unpleasant.

Parking was a nightmare. They had closed the valet parking entrance so I drove around for 20 minutes looking for somewhere else to park. Eventually they opened the entrance again. We also waited 30 minutes to get a table on the deck which was frustrating as we had made a booking. 2 people who hadn’t made a booking got seated on the deck before we did even though they arrived 20 mins after us. The hostess was not very polite or professional either!! But the food was outstanding, and worth the wait. Loved having a view, good music and atmosphere as well. Appreciated that our waitress took note that I was gluten-free and brought out a menu just for me. Loved the veggie sushi rolls as well.

Great atmosphere, but the sushi was terrible. I had the shrimp tempura roll, but I could barely even find and shrimp and the topping was terrible- I had to scrape all of that off.

Great food, service, and view! We ate on the rooftop and everything was wonderful - from the cocktail menu to the excellent service to the apps, sushi rolls, and desserts.
I highly recommend and will definitely return soon!
