    For sure, the sushi we had was the best in the Valley. You only need to order one roll because they are so HUGE - and delicious. I ordered the salmon Bento box; it was a bit pricey for what I got as far as food goes, but it was definitely tasty. Everyone else got a sushi roll and was quite happy with the one roll. We ordered edamame for an appetizer and had drinks from the bar, as well. We ended with the green tea ice cream for dessert, which was the perfect ending to our meal. We definitely want to return to this restaurant.

    I was a little disappointed with our dinner at Okura Robata. It started off great with the service from the front desk. They got us seated in a fairly decent amount of time. After sitting, it took 14 minutes for the server to come to our table. We ordered drinks and those came quickly. We order dinner, which also came in a reasonable amount of time. I had ordered soup and skewers and my wife got fish and some sushi rolls. They all came out at the same time. Would have expected rolls and soup first. We didn't have any chop sticks nor a napkin. We asked a server and he never got back to us. Had to wait another 10 minutes for someone to come around. My skewers were not served straight off the grill and were someone warm when I first got them. They were now very cold. Even after dinner, it took over 10 minutes for our server to come back and see if we needed anything. She proceeded to take our plates away and put them on the table next to us. Very lacking in presentation overall. I have been to Okura before and it was excellent, but this time was the extreme opposite and a great disappointment. So low marks for service and food quality and presentation. Definitely a forgettable evening not to mention a waste of money.

    We always hit Okura when we visit. Killer sushi and appetizers. My shishito peppers were a bit undercooked compared to other times.. but other than that, my overall experience is better everytime I go. The Hamachi Carpaccio is a remarkable (picture attached). Btw, the Okura Gin and Tonic is the go to cocktail if you want light, refreshing and semi-bitter/floral/fruit notes.

    I had not been in this building since it was a Mexican restaurant. The ambiance was very serene and quiet and the food was great. I was not expecting the potstickers to have a spicy flavor but they were also good. Our service, however, could have been better. We ordered the drinks/appetizers and it was not until after finishing our appetizers and waiting for a bit that we were able to order our dinner. Our waitress was nowhere on the floor for quite some time. Our food also took a while, so other tables that were seated after us had already paid and left. We were there for almost 2 hours for these reasons.

    The hamachi and salmon carpaccio’s are the best you can get such a great sauce. Excellent cocktails. Not your normal sushi restaurant. Robata grill puts out great beef and salmon. Most sushi restaurants don’t have desert, but this one has great deserts.

    Sadly this is the last time I will eat here. Service was the worst I have experienced in any restaurant. The staff was not interested in clearing any plates and the waitress never returned after our initial order when we were prepared to order more food and drinks. After 25 minutes with no service and empty plates on our table, numerous requests to see our waitress and at least more water- we got nothing. I requested the bill which took another 15 minutes and then told we were charged twice and would receive a credit later. Still chasing the credit. Very bad experience.

    The restaurant was LOUD, and we were given a table where light was shining on me through the open door, which I did not appreciate. The server was nice, and probably the best one I’ve had in this place, which is why we tried it again. Because in the past there’s been no problem with the food, but the service was bad. This time, we were served raw chicken, so unfortunately, we’re done here.

    Okura is a high-energy dining experience in probably the most expensive Japanese restaurant interior I've ever seen. Sitting at the sushi bar is a treat: dinner and a show. The sushi holds up its side of the bargain. The fish is sparkling fresh guided buy highly skilled chefs. The restaurant operates with military precision but with a friendly demeanor. You pay for the pleasure, of course. But why not sit and enjoy.

    I was not worn that part of my dish was spicy. The new noise level in that restaurant is somehow very loud. The menu looks astounding at first but it doesn’t quite live up to expectations. It’s a little too expensive for what you get.

    I would have preferred not being seated next to a loud party since I was on a date and wanted a more intimate setting. However, I also didn't appreciate having a waiter who didn't know what to recommend. It was frustrating having to look at a menu and asking the waiter what she recommended and having her tell me everything is good instead of giving me a straight answer. Overall, service was alright, food was delicious as always but I suggest spending more time on your waiters learning customer service, especially for the price point. They should be more attentive.
