First visit to O-Ku. for a local, they make it very easy with Valet parking. once inside, the service is great and the food is top shelf. try the lobster with tableside cooking, I was fabulous. on a busy night, manager checked on us no less than 3 times, with no problems to report. it can get a little crowded at the high tops next to the bar (bar was packed) but nothing that you cant deal with. we will be back.

Food was good, servers as a whole seemed scattered and not under control. We had a few questions about the menu and the server wasn’t sure but was very willing to find out the correct answer. I think the restaurant didn’t know if it wanted to be a restaurant or a nightclub.

This was our first visit and we have visited many sushi restaurants across the USA, O-Ku can certainly hold it’s own! The only negative was trying to find parking around the restaurant. Everything else was truly exceptional! Cocktails, sushi and service exceeded our expectations for a local sushi restaurant.

Food was excellent, service was fast and great! But it was so loud, we were seated at high tops by the bar d that’s probably why

The food was amazing -- especially the sushi. Who would've thought potato wrapped sushi could be so amazing, but it was. Would absolutely recommend. The serving staff was also on-point.
