The food at O-ku is awesome, we have never been disappointed. We were surprised at how crowded it was during these covid times. Although the service was sometimes a little slow, our server was incredibly aware of that, and even offered us a complimentary side dish AND dessert. We will be back!

Our experience wasn’t great to begin with. Kayla at the front desk had reserved a booth for us. Unfortunately, her colleague took us to a table close to the kitchen. We expressed our disappointment, the colleague’s response was “okay, well you can wait a little longer”. This after waiting for >30mins, reserving a table a week ago. Kayla & her Manager quickly deescalated the situation. The staff gave us complimentary drinks & food to compensate for their colleague’s unprofessional customer service. That was a surprise!! Their Old Fashioned is a must have.

Currently, Nashville has a restriction viz. 50% with social distancing. This place looked packed, ~75%.

Highly recommend/absolutely would order again: the rock shrimp and the mule mocktail. The suishi was good - I’d be open to trying different rolls next time. Service and ambiance was excellent.

Very noisy/packed for a Friday evening so I would recommend making a reservation.

BIG FYI- Nashville Boot were hovering around cars waiting for the paid time to expire. Definitely buy extra time or pay the $60 boot fee like me.

Thank you for the 5-Star review! I'm so glad you had good experience with us up until the unfortunate booting situation. Thank you for making us aware of this.

The food was great! Definitely would come back again for that. The service was alright. I arrived and wasn’t even acknowledged at the door or at least told to wait while the receptionist helped someone in front of me. She actually straight up ignored me and I had to wait around for someone else a few minutes later to take me to my reservation when the receptionist left the front. The waitress was not super attentive to the table.
