Great staff. Excellent food. Quality service. Loud, but the energy was good. Fun night and will definitely go back. Cheers!
We had an amazing time at Oku! Our waiter, Ray was beyond amazing and was so helpful with menu options and made our experience even more enjoyable! Can’t wait to come back!
Best dinner out in a long time! Our waiter was amazing! The food was incredible and they were very knowledgeable about accommodating for GF! We will definitely be back!
Great food and great service! You'll most likely need to make reservations until restaurants open to 100% post-pandemic.
Phenomenal meal and perfect service. First time but not the last.
We love Oku and it’s a regular spot for our date night. We never usually make it for Happy Hour, but we finally did this go round.
There are only a few items on the HH menu and it’s def a great deal but we would come whether it was HH or not. Our favorite menu items are the Ha-Ha-Machi, the Usuzukuri and the Yellowtail carpaccio. Our server was super friendly and accommodating and offered great recommendations. We can’t recommend Oku enough!
We have been to O-Ku several times now and this was a really poor experience compared to other times. We were excited to bring two of our friends visiting from out of town and all left feeling really disappointed. The service was extremely slow - we arrived at 6:45 and did not receive our sushi until after 8:00. Our waitress hardly checked in and when she was there it felt like we were bothering her the whole time. For a nicer restaurant we expected a lot more. Not sure we will be returning especially if we are hosting guests and want to bring them somewhere new.
We frequently dine at O-ku. It has some excellent takes on sushi and other entrees. We sat outside and it was delicious as always!
Got laid, good work
Food is SO good but our server was a little rude, she maybe just wasn’t having a great night. Then we also realized after getting home that we never got the edamame we ordered and paid for.
Great food and amazing customer service. Oh yeah, the wine is super good :-)
My wife and I have eaten here ever since O-Ku opened. Usually about once a month. We have always enjoyed the food. However, when we ate there last weekend it was dismal to put it politely. The food was way below average. We sent an appetizer back because it was so awful, I was given the wrong drink, the Nigiri that we ordered was really bad. All of the items were 95% rice, 3% sauce/topping and the other 2% was fish. Even the fish seemed to be poorly cut and prepared. So we felt really ripped off. When you drop $200+ for dinner you kind of expect to get at least good food. It was so bad I don't think we will return. I hate leaving bad reviews and I rarely do...but this was a pretty bad experience overall.
Elgin was our waiter & He was A-mazing!!!! Great food, & everything was perfect!
Had an amazing date night meal! Server was personable and knowledgeable with great suggestions. Will be back!
We love O-Ku! By far the best Sushi in the area.
Reservation for patio seating at 7:45 and ultimately ended up sitting inside after 8:30
Great service. Food was amazing, as always. Best sushi in town.
Great service! Delicious food! We really enjoyed everything and had a wonderful evening!
Food was great but portion are small so order at least a couple of items. Loved the outdoor area.
Girlfriend’s birthday dinner
We had a birthday to celebrate! We had not been COVID-vaccinated yet so we ate on the patio; the gas heaters kept us warm. All three of us ordered the omakase dinner and it was delightful. Elgin was a terrific waiter. We look forward to returning.
We had an amazing time. Also, costumer service was incredible. Totally recommend the restaurant!! They rock!!! :-)
Great service, extraordinary food and wonderful ambience! Can’t wait to return!
First experience here and it was awesome! Food, service, etc. will definitely be back!
Our server, Elgin, really made the experience at O-Ku so fantastic! He had such a warm personality, made suggestions from the menu, and even brought us a complimentary treat! Everything we ordered was delicious!
Great food and service! We loved the sashimi
The food was generally good but a few of the smaller dishes felt quite overpriced for the portion size. Although the quality was fine the price was higher than other quality sushi restaurants like City Market Sushi. There is a cool factor premium you are paying for here.
We met for a birthday dinner, it was exceptionally pleasant in their outdoor seating with heaters if they would have been needed. The fried rice and the chef specialties were all fire. And we could bring our dog which was an important part of the celebration. I'd highly recommend it.
Our server was excellent and we loved the creative non-traditional rolls!
Overall, there were some parts that were wonderful! Our server was sweet and attentive. The pork buns were amazing! Portions were small on the dishes we tried, but were advertised as small plates. We did have a shellfish allergy at the table and I was a little disappointed that the cauliflower ended up being a non-option (I love me some caulifower options!), but was pleased that we were notified before it was served. Will probably give it another shot, and it's a great option for those who do like seafood/sushi!
The food is always top notch. Service staff could be a bit more knowledgeable and polished considering the price point.
Ordering from regular menu would be better than omakase. I've had better. Not worth the money for omakase and too much time between the dish.
The waiter was great! Food was delicious, as always. We were also pleasantly surprised that oysters were available and the yuzu + oyster was fantastic. GREAT idea!
Great costumer service. Food was amazing!! Had a great time. Thank you!!
Excellent service, excellent food so glad we stopped in!
Didn't like my Sushi - don't think lemon aioli sauce belongs on sushi and was expecting better food for such a nice sushi place
Celebrated my boyfriends birthday. Phenomenal experience. Wonderful customer service, great food — mood was set in an excellent way. Will be coming back!!
Our server was on point we failed to inform her about a mild egg allergy and she quickly took care of the item and was inquisitive to prevent any further interaction. She was well-versed and attentive. Sushi was delicious!
Oku is an excellent, 5 star Japanese experience. The prices are not moderate but the food is top quality and the service is personal and very customer oriented. Excellent restaurant for high end dining
Love this place. It is a bit pricey, but food and service area great!
