    It was my second time dining at O-Ku and it lived up to the hype I experienced the first time months ago. From the host to our waitress to the sushi chefs and general manager, every staff member was friendly and created an awesome experience. The sushi here is some of the freshest in Greenville and tastes immaculate. This quickly became one of my favorite Greenville restaurants!

    We had a reservation at 6.15, our show at The Peace Center started at 7.30 so plenty of time to have a quick sushi dinner…wait, not so fast…when we got there at 6.10 we were told it would be a 20 minute wait…it ended up being a 25 minute wait.. Ordered a glass of white wine which was served at room temperature so had to send that back…our food arrived at 7.02 and it was excellent but we had to wolf it down to make it to the show on time…

    I can not wait to come back! From check in to dining the staff was so friendly and helpful. We sat at the counter and the chef’s were not only very skilled but, they also were open to questions about the menu and very happy to converse. The food was sooo delicious and fresh, I’m already planning my next trip back asap.

    Had a great time with amazing food. It did take awhile to get a server to our table as well as our drinks and food. The food was very good and drinks were moderate. By the time we arrived to when we received our food was about an hour and a half, and about 30 minutes until we received our drinks. Overall moderate- good experience.

    I’m not a hard person to please in a restaurant at all but this just was not it. The waiter never introduced himself or greeted us, we had no idea he was even our waiter until he came back and asked us for our order. The food was good. The lobster was very buttery but good. It would have been so nice to know ahead of time that the hot plates come out quite a bit before the cold. Good food but tons of better options than this in greenville

    Oh my gosh! I cannot recommend this place enough. We were treated so phenomenally by the employees and were so lucky to be celebrating our anniversary and promotions there. Our waiter (Jay I think?) was so knowledgeable, caring, and genuinely such a great person. The lobster temaki was phenomenal!!! The sushi was great!!! It was overall such a great experience. 10/10 recommend.

    Food was good, but timing of kitchen/sushi bar off, appetizer took at least 25 minutes and our rolls came out almost immediately after. Service was mediocre at best. Waited at least 15 mins to be seated for our reservation.

    I selected O-Ku to host a guest lecturer in a departmental dinner for Clemson University because of the Chef's reputation. I wanted to show off Greenville and the Upstate as a growing city. I would not recommend the restaurant if you're trying to impress anyone. It was so loud our group of 6 had trouble having any kind of conversation. They need an acoustical designer and/or a few softer finishes. It took 20 minutes to get water to the table. And, every time we needed a refill we had to flag someone down. 40 minutes to get our food order taken. 1h 40 minutes to get our food. Three dishes were wrong. Food quality was great. But, most of the group's conversation as we were leaving was about how poor of an experience it was, and for a Monday night!
