My fiancé took me out to celebrate our engagement. We had a wonderful server named Ray. He gave several suggestions on food items/drink options. He recommended a sake flight which was great! We will definitely be coming back!
Absolutely delicious and creative selections and the service was very welcoming!
Our server was absolutely FANTASTIC!!!! A young lady whose name we forget. She served the entire patio on Saturday night. She really made out night! Make sure you hold on to her....she was exceptional!
Wow! Just wow! Took my fiancé out for dinner and our server Gus made it a great night. 10/10 will be back soon! Thanks Gus you were great!
Great service! And food was fantastic. Can’t wait to go back
Great food, especially the lobster temaki and the pork belly. Excellent service as well. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and very courteous.
I would eat there again, but I won't do that until the owners drop the mask requirement for the staff. It's not fair to them that the patrons don't have to wear masks, but they do. Drop the masks, O-Ku, or we won't be back!
Amazing! Our waiter brought free champagne for my birthday, which was 2 days prior, and everything we had was so amazing!
Apps were deicious. Rolls were average
Great food and service! Great desserts. Sushi happy hour is Mon-Thurs, not MWF.
Food was amazing but always super slow. Love the ambiance too!
Great food and service. :-)
So good! As always. It’s one of our go-to restaurants!
Fantastic night there great as always. Food and service was amazing
It took a while for the server to come over to our table (she walked by multiple times without greeting us or even having someone pour us water) so I notified the hostess. After that she was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu and made a good recommendation for appetizer.
Best sushi around!!
Elgin took excellent care of us and made the entire experience as wonderful as the food. I hope to return soon!
Loved the atmosphere and sushi was amazing! Will definitely return.
Nice looking restaurant! Nice lighting! Music was way too loud! Reminded me of a retail store like h&m or forever 21. Waitress had to yell at us to communicate and we had to yell back. Food was expensive, which is fine as long as it’s quality matched the price. It’s quality did not match the price. Took girlfriend for birthday and she was not happy unfortunately.
Wonderful sushi and spectacular service! Our server, Ray, went above and beyond to make our dining experience special. We will definitely be back!
Really good and flavor food. Service was timely and my cups were never empty. We sat outside so our experience was a little quieter.
From beginning to end, this restaurant was superb. Janelle the hostess had such fantastic energy, gave us wonderful recommendations on food, and really set the tone for how great the rest of our dining experience was going to be. Tina was out server and her knowledge of the menu, personable touches to the table, and charming character was a much needed refresher from what the average restaurant offers. Highly suggest the chili edamame, the usukuzuri salmon appetizer, and the katana roll were delicious. Dessert was flawlessly executed with a strawberry and green tea mochi as well as Japanese style doughnut balls dusted with sugar and caramel drizzle. Overall, this experience could not have been better. MAJOR SHOUTOUT TO JANELLE AND TINA FOR MAKING THIS EXPERIENCE MEMORABLE!
Great sushi. Good happy hour prices on many rolls. Excellent waitress and bartender. Nice outdoor area. Would highly recommend
The food was great and our waiter was very attentive and pleasant.
Excellent service. Portions on the small side. Grilled Yellowtail and donuts were outstanding. Sashimi potions were small. Excellent service
Below average food at a premium price. Go to Kai or Waraji if you want good sushi/Japanese.
Excellent sushi restaurant in the heart of the city. Highly recommended for a lovely night out, great service, and delicious food.
Amazing service- our waiter brought us champagne & dessert since we were celebrating a birthday!! Food was phenomenal! Highly recommend!
Every bite amazing as always. Excellent service and presentation.
Thanks Ray for excellent service and suggestions. Food was great.
Great night of good food and great service.... Just wayyyy too expensive. We knew what we were going in for, but the sashimi price was exorbitant for the quantity and quality of the cuts. Luckily there are plenty more sushi places in the area. Again, the service was great. Maddie or Matty (muffled through the mask) and the rest that worked as a team, including the bartenders did an excellent job.
Food was prepared well, but portions were small. Service was good quality (thanks Joe!)
Try the Mochi (especially if you have read I Love You So Mochi)
Best sushi I have ever had! Great service. Great variety of dishes. The donut holes for dessert are a must have!
Made a reservation for 830 here on a Tuesday night. My date and I were meeting for the first time so we were trying to take our time and relax. However, directly at 9 our waitress told us that it was last call for any orders and stood by the table while we rushed to try to figure out our order. From then on it was rush, rush, rush to get us finished and out the door so the waitress could clean up and leave. I hate feeling rushed when I’m dining out, and even more so when I’m trying to meet and make a connection with someone. Very disappointed by this.
O-Ku was the most wonderful dining experience I have had in quite some time. Would highly recommend to just about anyone!
Our waitress, Maddie, was excellent - saw to our every need and made sure we had every thing we needed to have a wonderful evening out. The food was delicious as well.
Very efficient waitstaff. Excellent ambiance. Excellent quality sushi. Beautiful presentation.
Donuts were good. Wings were small, sent back due to pinkish tint. Smooth sake drinks.
Everything was amazing. Perfect cocktails. Delicious food. Amazing cocktails. Service was spot on.
Unfortunate that drinks arrived after we finished our entire meal. The bartender was “backed up”. And we were still charged for them.
I love this restaurant so much. The food was amazing! I ordered a bunch of food to share for the table and the kitchen was great at bringing the dishes out in waves so we didn’t have a cluttered table. Our waitress was outstanding. She was attentive and really paid attention to anything we might need. I also enjoyed sitting outside next to the heater.
