O-Ku - Raleigh
Outstanding is an UNDERSTATEMENT. The service and food here was phenomenal. The cocktail menu is diverse and our server Diana was very knowledgeable of the food menu and gave great recommendations. Myself and my closest friends celebrated my 24th birthday here and the staff was top notch. The food was amazing and came out in a timely manner. They even brought us complimentary green tea shots to help us celebrate! You don’t find that kind of dedication to customer service anywhere. The manager was professional and polite and checked on us to make sure we were satisfied with our experience. I cannot recommend this place enough. I’ll be back!
Overall a very good experience! Waitress was super kind, attentive but not over-bearing. Knew the menu. Never felt pressured or rushed. Would go back again!
We love this place. The service was fast and personal. The food is always delicious. O-Ku has a nice selection of sushi and sashimi. I would definitely recommend O-Ku for a date night.
Great food. Amazing service! We complained about our cost table because it was by the door and the cold breeze keep us cold but they were accommodating enough to switch us a different table and end up having the best server.Joe was good and knowledgeable about food and drinks. Food was great! Pork bun, yakitori, hamachi and tuna tataki! Mind blown 🤯 Definitely will go back here with group of friends. Clean, elegant and good ambiance for date night and ladies night. Highly recommended
So much variety to choose from! Everything was delicious including the desserts!
Last minute reservation. Great sake pairing with sushi. Elegant place for a great bite to eat. Recommend a reservation so you don’t get sat outside in the cold.
Great service. Food was delicious. Got a little loud during the end of our meal.
Excellent food and service
Our meal at O-Ku was absolutely exceptional. As far as I'm concerned, this is the best sushi in the city. The staff is very kind and very knowledgeable. It was a fantastic evening out, and I will certainly be back again soon!
Food was amazing, staff was awesome and accommodating but it was expensive to be expected but still worth it by far.
Amazing food, service and cleanliness. I will definitely return for special occasions.
We loved our experience at O-Ku. Food & service was exceptional. Definitely one of our favorites now. The birthday celebrant felt special for sure. The extra attention given made it really a celebration to be remembered!! Thank you O-ku!!
Amazing sushi!! Probably the best in the Raleigh area
Thank you so much for the kind words. We look forward to having you back in the restaurant soon!!
So glad they are back!!! Forgot how good they are!!!
Our first experience at O-Ku and we enjoyed it very much. We will be back!
Had a great experience here. The waiter noticed it was my friends birthday and brought us a drink and donuts with a candle for an extra special evening. It was so appreciated!
The food was fresh and innovative. I will definitely return.
We waited 30 minutes for our food. I ended up having to leave and come back to pick up our order as a to go order. The portions were entirely too small for the cost. My daughter ended up having to share my meal bc the two pieces of crab meat they gave her weren't enough to bait a shrimp net! Will NOT be returning!
Kisha, Thank you so much for your feedback, we love feedback. I will be reaching out to you to discuss your experience further. Thank you for your time and have a great day. Zach Stewart General Manager
Came in for my sisters birthday. Could not have had a better time. Truly an experience we will never forget.
Ok-u is by far my favorite sushi spot in Raleigh,NC. The service and ambiance are unmatched! Additionally, the establishment is very clean.
Good food, fairly creative and interesting, though the outside dining is a mixed bag. Some moving air would have been good, but I know they are doing the best they can in the COVID era. Maybe prices are a little high, but overall value is good.
Excellent food and service
Definitely will be back! You certainly do need a reservation.
Great cocktails. Great sushi. Great service.
We love O-ku, food was excellent, fish was super fresh. Every single dish was delicious. Cocktails were great, sugar and spice is my favorite. Service was outstanding, super friendly and courteous staff. We’ll be back soon.
This was our first time out since March and we loved every minute. The food was amazing, service was great and we got to eat on the patio which was wonderful. Great experience. We love OKU!!
Going to O-Ku last weekend was only the second time i've been out since the beginning of Covid19, but if more restaurants handled spacing, temperature checks, and overall safety the way they did, i'd be likely to go out to eat more often.
Food was excellent. Service was amazing. Social distancing tables for COVID made us feel more comfortable.
Excellent service, food, and atmosphere. A little in the pricy side but a great place to splurge once and a while.
We have been here the past two weekends. The food is amazing...top two sushi places in Raleigh, hands down. The service is wonderful, and the ambiance is perfect for a night out, romantic or with friends. 10/10 recommend
Consistently good food and ambient atmosphere. Service is sophisticated but was a little slow this time. Favorite aspect is always the atmosphere.
Very disappointed in the omakase. Last time we came just a few months ago the omakase experience was so amazing that we were very excited to come again today for my birthday. It’s a sushi restaurant, and on top of that, it’s an omakase, but salad and gyoza was given for 1/4 of our course. I don’t understand why gyoza would be a part of an omakase. It felt like a waste and they were just trying to make us more full. The omakase experience we had a few months ago was definitely worth the $100 but this time we were so disappointed that it felt like it should’ve been a $50 meal. Wagyu is also not worth it unless it’s the A5 which wasn’t available so we went with hanger steak wagyu but it felt and tasted so tough and bland. Half of the fish in the sushi courses were so low quality that we were confused because when we had sushi here a few months ago it was amazing and a different experience. Overall, the only word I would use to describe tonight’s dinner is: disappointment.
Went with my family and everything was great from service to food and wine.
Best sushi in Raleigh. They have the freshest fish and all the rolls are so good. Even their hot dishes and appetizers are great
Took my friend for her Birthday! When I made the reservation I included a message that explained the occasion and they went above and beyond! Our server Anna was so helpful/thoughtful. Our dinner was amazing-she even brought out dessert with a candle and champagne at the end! Thank you!
Best sushi In Raleigh 🤗 so good and great service.
Always the very best!!!
Wonderful food and staff!! I will definitely go back soon. I highly recommend!!
O-Ku was delicious. Even better than the first time I went a year ago. The service was great and safe.
