Food and service good. Bathrooms were the problem. They need a plumber. Mens sink was leaking from the wall faucet. My wife reported the womens toilet wasn’t working. Its in a mall area and the parking area underneath had leaking pipes and a foul smell. Not pleasant coming into and out of the restaurant. I wouldn’t return until they fix these basic sanitation issues.

The hostess Reese was adorable.
Our waiter never showed up until the end to deliver the check. A girl took our order someone else delivered it and then the actual waiter appeared at the end. Why not just have a waiter for a specific section instead of one that has tables outside or in another part of the restaurant? I’ve been eating here for years and the service is consistently sub par.

This was our first time here and the food was delicious! The ambiance was perfect. We sat inside only because it was a rainy day but the next time we will try the outdoor seating. Our waitress was great. Overall everything was great. The bathrooms could use some attention/plumbing though.

Obon has a wide variety of tasty and carefully prepared foods, and also had particularly good and attentive and pleasant service during this visit. That combination is impossible to beat. Of course, we were there between lunch and happy hour, so perhaps that helped, but, again, the food and service were excellent.

Good drinks, nice food ingredients and portion sizes. Edamame sauce and Obon ramen were too salty—the salt overshadowed other flavors.

This busy restaurant had a club-ish vibe and “pretty” servers who gave adequate but not great service. The room was very “live” and loud, which made conversation at the table a little difficult. That being said, the food was pretty good. The cocktails were ok, but not really special, despite the menu claims 🙂

Food is always good here. Service is sometimes spotty. My husband asked for club soda and he received an already open five dollar bottle of mineral water. When I asked if they had soda water from the gun, she said, “this is better” I think he should be given the option rather than having a server decide! We made a comment about it, she said oh OK next time I’ll bring it to you from the gun. No offer to comp the five dollar bottle of soda water or replace with what we wanted, or do anything else——poor

We have frequented Oban several times because the sushi is quite good. The service however, is absolutely terrible. From the hostess to the server. Waiting that long just to get sliced sashimi is frustrating. Would highly recommend that Oban hire staff who is interested in making the experience match the food
