Service was very knowledgeable about the menu and assisted with any questions. The menu itself is very diverse and amazing. We started with sushi fresh from Japan, and then had mushroom potstickers, finally the wagyu beef and lobster ramen. Highly recommend both dishes. Overall the food was high quality as was service.

Oko is so delicious, it almost doesn't seem like food, it's like a Nobu-style elevation of the food experience. Brian Lewis is just a genius. And staff is top flight in every way. Such a favorite.

Brought colleagues visiting from Brazil (foodies) and they said it was the best food they'd every had in the US.

We’ve eaten at OKO two dozen times. This was a disappointing meal. Food was over-salted; and why the restaurant defaults to serving high-sodium soy sauce is a mystery.

Food and atmosphere were fine, but we felt rushed. We were there for an anniversary dinner and we were looking forward to a fun evening, but it just felt we were getting moved along so they could seat the next party. Oko is small and popular, so we understand the urge to move the table, but at the prices we paid we expected more.

This once-fabulous Westport restaurant has fallen from greatness in every way. We have been Oko regulars since it’s opening and have watched as the sushi quality and portions have continually diminished, the staff is no longer excellent and the overall experience now feels average (but with pricing that indicates excellence). It’s a shame, Oko used to be the best restaurant in the area but no more. I hope they step up their game to the way it used to be with exceptional food and service.

We were looking forward to trying this restaurant after so many great reviews, but we were disappointed. We shared a steamed pork and crab dumplings which were good. We had one wagzu beef which was cooked perfectly, but completely under seasoned. The most disappointing was the lobster ramen. When it arrived, it was ramen noodles with tiny bits of dry lobster on top with a sprinkle of fresh herbs. I asked if they had forgotten the soup and the server told us it was their version. Literally, the definition of ramen is Japanese noodle soup. Lobster and noodles had zero flavor. Super disappointed- will not be returning.

It’s expensive but really good and worth it if you want to splurge a little. We ordered the 10-piece chef’s selection of nigiri sushi which was outstanding. Every piece was a bit elevated beyond what you might expect at a standard sushi place. All we’re delicious but especially liked the smoked black cod with crispy beets and horseradish and the snapper with red jalapeño kosho. Also loved the Jonah crab & pork dumplings. Service was excellent and the vibe was smart casual. We’ll be going back. Forgot to take pics.

We got the chef’s selection of tempura, sticky ribs, edamame, 10 pieces of sashimi and the chocolate cake for dessert. Absolutely wonderful services. The sushi and tempura were beyond my expectations. So fresh and well executed. Probably the best meal I’ve had in a really long time.

had high hopes but everything was too fishy tasting from the coke and hot appetizers, or too salty and spicy.

This place got amazing reviews so we thought we would try it. For reference we usually go to Nobu-57 in Manhattan and realize a little place in CT isn't going to compare but heard Oko came close. To start off we sat at the bar, the bartender (thick blond with short hair) must have been having a bad day because she was not very nice. If I could use a descriptive word that starts with a B in the review I would but it would probably be taken down so I wont. Ill just say I expect a server or bartender to at least answer questions about the menu and not get an attitude. One such question was if an item was served as nigiri or sashimi and the answer was "its fish from Japan" with an exasperated tone.

The food was really mediocre, we started with a spicy tuna handroll, it was wrapped loosely and falling apart. the flavor was bland and it was anything but a spicy tuna roll. also the rice was hot enough we had to blow on it to cool it off when it should have been cold. next we had Miso soup, this was very good and was as expected at a mid-level sushi restaurant. we then ordered sticky ribs that were ehh, tempura eggplant was alright but something you throw together in the kitchen at home would be better. The tempura scallions were the best thing out of the meal at this point but needed salt or something to accent them. We proceeded with a wagyu beef topped with a quail egg. This actually sucked in comparison to any wagyu I have ever had. We finished with a grilled octopus lettuce wrap. It was fishy tasting and I gagged swallowing it.

While there were a few decent Japanese whiskey and even an 18 year that is particularly good if you want to spend the money at a bar as it retails for about $900/bottle if you can find it, (I have it at home for enjoying) the whiskey selection was lacking. To be told the best part of the meal was the Sapporo Beer I had.

We would recommend you skip this place, if yo like it and have been there disregard but there are better options
