Inventive and modern sushi and Japanese inspired plates. Excellent for sharing. Incredibly fresh and flavorful. Our server made excellent suggestions that met our needs. We’ll be back.
The food was very bland - we had Tempura which was really greasy, the Ramen broth was gritty and the portion on cod we had super tiny. The bartender was also wiping off the air conditioner vent above the bar with a mop every few minutes so it didn’t drip. Not a great experience at all.
Felt the waiter was too pushy with food choices. When bringing out the order it was wrong , We told the sever but he said enjoy it. Without saying we will bring the correct dish out. When ready for dessert a girl put out the menu in a dirty wet table. I just felt rushed through the whole dinner. The sushi is very good just will wait on going back and wait til they get it together.
Tempura was saturated with oil. Pieces should be cut smaller to avoid the extended time in oil. Chawanmushi should not be watery. Nori wrap of the hand roll should be dry to be easily chewed.
This place just gets better and better everytime I go
It’s like a family union that takes it to another level with service food and atmosphere that’s off the charts
How lucky are we all in Fairfield county to get to experience one of the best restaurants on the planet right here in our own backyard
Sincerely and gratefully
Delicious, inventive modern Japanese cooking.
Noisy, but not deafening.
Expensive, but worth it.
Brian Lewis does not disappoint. Brought my daughter in for a mom and me dinner before the movies and she loved it. The food was fast and flavorful. It’s my daughter’s new favorite place to eat. If you would rather take your time and order more courses you can do that too. Every bite was a party on the plate and reminded me of the delicious food we had while in Japan. They also fixed the noise issue which makes the place much cozier and nicer for conversational meals.
Good not bad but the price is too high for the value
We were excited to try a new place and absolutely love The Cottage. We waited a bit for our reservation but everyone was very nice. The sake was excellent. The fish was incredibly fresh but was overpowered by too many toppings that weren’t needed. One of the pieces was egg custard cut from a sheet pan. We couldn’t find the fish underneath it all. It’s too bad. Probably won’t be back for the price.
My husband and I rarely go to restaurants later in the evening, but decided to this past Saturday bacause we wanted so badly to check out OKO. We tried to get reservations Saturday afternoon for Saturday night - our bad - so we took what we could get; 9:45. It proved to be an excellent decision. The place was packed! We enjoyed several wonderful, delectable, dishes. Our choices were based on our server Julia’s recommendations. What a gem she is. We topped off the night by sharing vanilla soft serve topped with toasted almonds and a Matcha kit-kat bar. Both are NOT to be missed. Oh, yes, we’ll
go again...even if it’s late night! The staff was welcoming, professional, and they know their stuff! Westport is lucky to have OKO.
Solid place in general. Foods is great with some very unique flavors. Some very interesting spins on Asian food. My Korean wife keeps bugging me to go back. We’ve been back 3 times already for more!
Nice ambience and decor - a good date night or celebration type place. Good service - lots of staff.
It’s the same owner/chef as The Cottage which is another Westport gem. Well worth going to both Oko and The Cottage.
Was fantastic food.
The whole family loves dining at OKO. Best sushi in the area.
We were not impressed. As huge sushi fans, we were really hoping to have an awesome meal. We each ordered the chef's choice of sushi ($45 dollars 10 pieces which is reasonably priced), but the pieces themselves were not great- it was almost like the least ordered sushi was thrown onto the plate (I only managed to eat 6 of the 4 pieces, and I'm generally pretty adventurous). Could be that I ordered completely wrong, but again, was not impressed.
The hot food was delicious, the sushi was pretty terrible, my husband got the sashimi live scallop which looked and tasted old. For the price, we felt ripped off. I think this place is trying to bill itself as a sushi joint, but by that standard, it was very sub-par
Definitely the Best sushi I’ve had in a long time...
Too much attitude. Prices would be absurd in Manhattan.
whats not to like about this place? Its cute and cozy with elevated food and original cocktails. The owner is a good host, the staff work as a team and the whole meal is well composed and thoughtful while still casual and not too serious. Its just the right size to feel like a neighborhood spot and its a peg above all other sushi in fairfield county. I sometimes call when its showing full and they accommodate me at the bar
Everyone so nice but had to ask for explanation on chef’s choice. Not attentive.
Superb food, excellent service, and extraordinary management. Must get a cocktail off the menu and try the gyozas as well as dessert. Most fresh nigiri I’ve ever had.
We really wanted to try this. It’s hard to imagine wanting to go back. There was nothing exceptional about our experience.
Another amazing experience!! The cocktails are stellar, the staff most accommodating, and the food is just addicting!!
My husband and I are foodies and sushi “snobs”. Many years of living in CT, we have yet to find good (never mind decent) sushi, until now. Chef Brian is a master of cuisine and an absolute artist. His dishes were like nothing my husband and I have ever experienced and we are both well traveled. This experience wasn’t simply sushi, it was artitisty. Every dish was better than the next, not only taste but presentation and textures. Each bite was popping with extroininary flavors and every morsel was married perfectly. I’m only mentioning the food, but the cocktails were over the top as well. Utterly unique combinations that worked perfectly to create refreshing , light drinks that weren’t sickening sweet with juices that we all have come to know. The service was spot on, knowledgeable and attentive and the restaurant in entirety was impeccable. We have found our favorite place in CT..., finally !!!! We’ll be back again and again !
Second visit to Oko
Food and service were outstanding. Will definitely be going back.
Upon arrival, we were greeted with two glasses of Cava to celebrate our anniversary! When I first looked at the menu I was a little overwhelmed (lots of unfamiliar dishes, and most are small plates)--but we slowed chose a few things that sounded interesting, and although occasionally what showed up was not what we expected, every single thing we ate was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend---but plan to be a little adventurous!
Clearly the best sushi in the County. Subtle fresh flavors. The tempura was also outstanding. Unusually wonderful selection of teas. Desert of soft serve ice cream with a selection of topics is a fun and refreshing coda. Wait staff was attentive and personable. Noise levels though not conducive to easy conversing.
Too loud. Expensive for portion sizes.
Too cramped...almost sitting on top of the next table and can hear each other’s conversations... Not ideal for a date.
Creative menu that fills a void in the local markets. Experience could be enhanced by better service and reduced noise level.
Fabulous new restaurant to the Westport dining scene. Amazing quality of creative Asian dishes. The sashimi platter included melt in your mouth delectable quality, not your typical fish found elsewhere in CT. Save room for homemade frozen custard for dessert!
this was an amazing place, cant wait to go back again... the staff was unreal great and the chef is a great person, came over asked how it was and couldn't have been more friendly on a night that was bumping he still took the time to ask..
The menu is exceptional and highly creative. Razor clams, all tempura offerings and sticky ribs great. Small space and only 8 seats at the bar so a reservation is necessary as Oko is extremely popular and busy.
My wife and I tried Oko for the first time on the occasion of our anniversary and were not disappointed. Small plate choices gave us the opportunity to try a number of items on the menu, and our waitress was very helpful in making recommendations. We will go back.
Went here for husband’s birthday. Food was very good but at city prices.
Westport has really become an amazing restaurant town and OKO is certainly a welcome addition. Great intimate space with really interesting and delicious food. Chef Lewis brings an innovative touch to not only sushi, but other Japanese dishes as well. The kind of menu you can come back several times and not have the same thing twice. The torched Cod is better than Nobu's BTW...and right here in Westport.
Exceptional quality however the “meal” portion for the price was shockingly small.
The quality and taste of the food just didn’t match the price. The sushi was good but vegetable tempura was ok. Black cod was heavily marinated and salty. The crab shumai just didn’t taste good at all. Just way too expensive for that type of food. Nothing memorable. Service was a bit slow. Waitress oversold the menu saying everything was great.
On the positive side, the atmosphere and the decor of the restaurant was very nice.
AMAZING!!! Chef Brian has done it again! We have been several times and we still haven't been able to taste everything BUT everything we have tasted has been AMAZING!
Ralph behind the bar at both Cottage and Oko was fabulous as always!
Great menu and food!
The food was incredible. The portions were small and very $$. But I am a huge fan of Japanese food and would have paid any amount for it. I highly recommend it, if you are too.
