We had a lovely evening. They have improved the noise level enormously. The food was delicious, especially the chef's choice tempura and the shisito peppers. We were with a wine and sake expert who gave good marks to the wine list, but felt the sake options were ordinary.

Told us we had to leave because we were under 21 even though we did not try to purchase alcohol. Do not come here for a date spot if you are under 21. It didn’t mention the age limit on the website and was very disappointed.

Wonderful meal. Compares to some of the finest and most creative Japanese in NYC. Our server was extremely nice but opted to bring one item at a time making the meal more than 2 hours long. She apologized. But do not let this deter you from going as she fixed the problem. I told everyone in my office to go. We will return very soon and are not put off by the 30 minute drive.

We had a great family celebration for our sons birthday. The sushi is definitely the standout - really unique and delicious. The sticky ribs and dumplings were excellent too. Only "complaint" - but we knew and expected - is that the sushi is VERY expensive... if you are really hungry prepare to have a big bill.

What happened to Oko? We had a really poor experience on sunday night. Quality of fish, taste of the dishes, service timing, everything was off. Tables next to us were complaining as well. Very disappointing!

The fish is fresh and amazing. We sat at he bar despite the reservation as the seats near the window were very cold and the restaurant temperature in general was cold. And yes while seafood doesn’t mean it needs to be so cold, we ate at Whelk the next night sat next to the window and was fine!

The bartender was great and understanding and gave us great recommendations. I’ve been to Matsuhis’s restaurants and others very nice if not more exclusive in NYC. Most are very good at either meeting customer requests or upfront on the website manage expectations about changes or the inability of changes. This place did not set expectations that way and was certainly unwilling to meet our requests on the sashimi we would have like to order. And $6 or $15 for just one piece of sushi even if it is Otoro - again Matsuhisa despite being expensive is still much better value than here.

We enjoyed the few fish and hand rolls we did have but left feeling unwelcome and unappreciated as a customer. Not sure I would come here again, why when there are always choices and better choices around.

Best sushi around truly authentic Japanese style. Although I have butter and cream sensitivities. I would love to have dumplings without butter sushi is a must have along with hand rolls Desserts are soft serv cones served in a with an amazing variety of toppings. Cocktails and wines are brilliant and designed to go well with your food choices. The Chef is brilliant and hard to believe I wasn’t sitting in a restaurant in Japan. Go Omikase and let chef make choices on best pieces of sushi. Loved it. Will go back for lunch next time. Congratulations on transforming what used to be a (NEAT)coffe cafe by day and cocktail bar at night into an amazing Japanese dining room. Must return so many more options to try. Something for everybody. There are even kid bento boxes.

The food was mind blowing. The sushi was like butter and so fresh. Also the fact that you can order tempura and its celiac friendly & gluten free is wonderful. I was so incredibly fresh, clean & crisp.
Westport is so lucky to have this gem

Okra TEMPURA - Need I say more?! If you have spent your whole life on the East Coast (GET A LIFE!) don’t sit around wondering what Okra is ... just know it is a vegetable and get on with it ... SO YUMMY!

Overall it was a good experience. Food was good but, for me, there was no WOW factor! We tried 7 different dishes...the only one that I loved was the seaweed salad... the rest were bland...and the Duck & Foie Gras Gyoza was a bit salty!
Service was great..a bit noisy but tolerable. I guess I was expecting something more!

Had dinner for the 1st time Saturday night..
Positives..Very good food and great service.
Negative..Very expensive and one of my pet peeves is when you are charging $13 for a drink, give a generous size drink..Little things like the short drink turn me off to a place.

We enjoy eating at Oko and tasting many dishes. I appreciated themholding 2 seats for us as reqauested at the bar after I phoned and said we'd be 15 minutes late.
Albert at the bar was great in service, conviviality and skill. Unfortunately, the loud noise level does not permit conversation and distracts from the delicious meal.
I was very disappointed that OpenTable did not award me any points for this reservation......why????

This is the 3rd visit for us and we do enjoy the variety and the quality of their food. However, the portions are on the small side and the price is on the high side. I still would recommend Oko as the quality is very consistent and the service is very good. One just have to expect to pay the price for excellent service and food. The cocktails are also very good. Make sure to leave room for a little bit of dessert. I love the chocolate cake.

Four of us had an excellent dinner at OKO. The sushi (we had 4 types) was all fresh and flavorful, hand rolls (spicy King Crab & Spicy Maine Scallop) were a delight. The duck & Foie Gras Gyoza were so tasty, and the assorted vegetable tempura were light and retained each of their respective flavors. We also had some sort of a rice bowl (can't remember the name) with fish pieces and sticky ribs. We would reorder any of our selections, and will be back soon. The waiter (Stephen) was very helpful and made great recommendations, and the chef even said "hello" A great spot!
