    We had a great experience. Their servers are very on top of things and super on top of things. The only thing we were disappointed by was we had a 7:5 reservation and we had to wait a good 15 minutes just to get sat. we sat out outside onthe patio, which was perfect as I would have to say that it would be difficult to have a conversation inside as the acoustics are not very good. However, the atmosphere is very nice if you do sit inside.

    We came at the time of our reservation. Plenty of open tables but still had to wait ten minutes to be seated. The air conditioning was blowing directly down on us. I asked the hostess to be moved and she offered only the sushi bar even though there were many open tables. We stayed at our table and two parties were seated next to us and they also asked to be reseated and were. The restaurant needs to put diffusers in their AC outlets to prevent the cold pouring straight down. The hostess could also be more considerate and trying to find us another table. That was the negative. The food is excellent. Large portions. Drinks a little pricy. Service was great.

    Okura is my “go to” for Japanese cuisine. The food is fresh and excellent. Perhaps a little pricey for some, but I will definitely dine there again.

    The service was great, the sushi would have been better if the pieces were cut smaller. The quality of the fish was good but it is a place that has thick sushi slices and thick roll slices. Harder to eat and less enjoyable, thinner slices would bring the quality of the fish out more. The value of the food could have been better, paid $230 for 2 adults and 2 kids to share 2 rolls and 3 sushi’s. Appetizers like edamame and miso soup and drinks as well but still probably not worth $230 after tipping.

    Just OK. IMHO, the menu is too large for proper execution. Also, it includes cheap “krab” (fake crab or surimi fish with dye) in sushi. Service was passable, but not exceptional in any way. Overcrowded.

    Unlike other visits, we were disappointed. Our reservation for an outside table wasn't honored. When the host brought us to an inside table and I asked for a table outside as reserved, she brushed us off and said it would not be possible. Next, our meal was rushed from the start, but with long pauses waiting for food and drink. We were asked to order everything at once and when we said we would rather not, we were told that could be a problem for the kitchen. After our appetizers, wait staff tried to clear our table twice before our main courses arrived. Our reservation was for 8:30 and we were 5 minutes early. If this is not a time when the restaurant is comfortable serving dinner for 90 minutes (a normal and not excessive amount of time for a weekend evening meal), I wish the reservation slot would not be offered. Although the food was good, the experience affected our enjoyment.

    We give 4 stars because I put a note on Open Table that our dining was to celebrate a birthday. Okura did not acknowledge or greet us… Happy Birthday. We don’t know if the service falls short with Open Table or if Okura doesn’t get the note or doesn’t look for it. It fell short somewhere so only 4 stars.
