Josh was absolutely on top of his game as a server, had great recommendations, and was super knowledgeable about the menu. The sushi was super fresh, the two step roll and mochi were incredible

Our server Austin was great. The atmosphere (despite COVID) was chill, relaxing ... love it there. Staff was very accommodating. The sushi was good but did not wow like usual. Hopefully, it is a COVID thing not the new norm.

Fantastic - we did the chef’s tasting menu with sake pairing. It was pricey but it was some of the best Japanese-inspired food we have eaten since Nobu in New York. Service was outstanding. Noise level was a bit high to start but calmed down some over the course of the evening. Highly recommended.

I love the restaurant and was so excited to be back. I've been twice since they opened and truly love my experience and the food. The staff is amazing, food is beyond. Everything is so clean and they follow protocols mandated by the Mayor. Be sure to get extra ginger. It's the best.

I am so incredibly happy they are open again. I was craving their ginger and sushi during the COVID shut down. I would love to see them bring back their sushi happy hour. However, I will still pay full price, but probably go less often.

We ate out at O-Ku for the first time out since the safer at home quarantine. We had eaten there for our anniversary dinner back in mid-March, and yes, that was the last dinner out we had together. Then, and now, it was an exceptional experience. Our server, Ben, was knowledgeable, charismatic, and fun. All our food was, well, perfect--fresh, temped perfectly, and flavorful. Just perfect. It is a bit pricey but you know, you get what you pay for! We'll be back, again and again.
