We were blown away by our experience at O-ku. Chose O-ku for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner. The food and drinks were excellent, the ambience was relaxing but what blew us away was from the moment we walked In the door every time we encountered a new member of the staff the first thing they said was “Clay, Happy Birthday, I hope you have a great day.” It was great how special they made my boyfriend feel and the fact that the entire staff acknowledged him with every encounter blew me away. Definitely service above all. Thank so much for helping make his day that much more special.
We went for a date and to celebrate my birthday. We had an amazing time, food was delicious, the service extraordinary.
Trey was outstanding! Great service overall, will be back.
Wonderful date night experience. Food, service and ambience was incredible. Our server Trey was attentive and also informative in suggestions both with pairing of wine (sake) as well as suggestion dishes that were new to our palate. The manager stopped by to confirm that our evening and meal was as we expected. The atmosphere for a date night was perfect. Decor, lighting piped music and food presentation. Furthermore during these days of covid an inddor dining experience that was comforting. Temp taken at the door, tables socially distanced (more than 6 ft.), staff masked at all times. We look forward to our next dining adventure at O-ku.
I absolutely love coming into O-Ku, especially for their half off sushi rolls on Mon & Weds. Amazing food and exceptional service! Thanks Reggie for always being great & taking care of us!
Always fresh, great food. My fav sushi place in Charlotte! Many rolls to choose from. Only complaint is that we had to wait 20 min after our rsvp time.
Oku has the best service and creative sushi. Love the Lobster appetizer and the tuna and bluefin sushi. Didn’t try the cocktails but fresh beer and local stuff on tap. Our server was the best lots of recommendations and just a fun person all around!
We love Tony and Ryan !
Ok-I is the best, I’ve been going there for years and recommend it to everyone
Place never fails to out do expectations, Trey is an incredibly knowledgeable and personable server, will be requesting him for all future dining! Love this place!
Sushi was fantastic and service was amazing. Great place for a special occasion or everyday dining. Interior is very modern although a bit noisy. I highly recommend O-Ku!
We had amazing service all around and had awesome sushi and sashimi. Recommend the salmon tartare starter.
Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff was top notch. I will definitely go back.
We always go as a group, order 8-10 different rolls and have never had a bad one.
So incredibly good!! Will be back ASAP!
Another beautiful evening out with a special friend. The food, ambience, service and everything else you can addition made it a delight.
This is our favorite place to dine regularly. It’s a special place for us and we continue to return. Home Sweet Home....
O-Ku is always incredibly fantastic! I have gone here on several occasions to enjoy their happy hours and celebrate various birthdays. If you want an enjoyable time with great food and a beautiful atmosphere check it out!
Delicious and great service as always.
LOVED IT!!!! We went to celebrate my sister’s birthday and we LOVED IT!
Food and atmosphere were excellent. Well spaced tables. Felt very comfortable and safe
The food and service were fantastic! It’s definitely for special occasions because it’s fairly pricey. You could do more reasonably priced items but most of the dishes they are known for are the most expensive items. Perfect for celebrations!
Tony made our experience at O-Ku amazing. The food is always phenomenal at this location. The drinks were unique and well-made. We sat down for a self-made four-course meal and had a wonderful evening. Thank you Tony & OKu
The best!!!! I would eat here every week if I could 😁
Server was great!! Food was awesome!!
My friend and I traveled from Greenville, SC for our birthdays.
The service was absolutely terrible. We paid for our drinks
and left after about an hour of waiting.
Service was outstanding and the food was excellent. Our waiter also made it a fun and enjoyable experience. He was excellent as well.
We absolutely loved the food and the atmosphere!
Leans to the pricy side, but we all deserve to treat ourselves now and then.
Dined for the first time a few days ago & I can already tell this will be my new favorite place. The food is absolutely amazing & the atmosphere is amazing as well. 10/10 would recommend.
Great restaurant & great server. We arrived early for our reservation and were quickly accommodated. I’m looking forward to my next outing to O-ku.
The service was great. The food was great. I am so happy we came. Thank you very much!
Always a great experience at O-Ku, it's a little dark so bring your reading glasses if you need those!
The wife & I enjoy the environment, service & food.
The sushi was very delicious and our server, Trey, was awesome!
Great food and great service. Will come back.
Udon noodles were amazing! The chef gave us a complementary salmon sashimi that was so delicious. Drinks were strong and very good. Everything was wonderful, including the service! Best service I’ve had in awhile. Lots of room to park too.
Food was fantastic, waitress was wonderful and very attentive. All around wonderful experience.
Have been there a couple of times. Awesome food, service, atmosphere. Ask for Ryan, fun times.
