    Okura Sushi was great. Had a roll and they customized it for my request. Excellent fresh fish, and also excellent service by the wait staff and the bus boy. Can’t wait to go back. Bartender was spot on as well. My favorite sushi restaurant in the area.

    This review summarizes a few visits to Okura. The food here is excellent, but the prices are exceptionally high if you consider the quality and variety of the fish, service, and ambiance. It’s easy to eclipse $100/person ordering a mix of sushi and rolls, which isn’t out of the ordinary for sushi, but along with this I’d expect upscale service and a unique selection of fish (for example, at a small chef-owned sushi restaurant with knowledgeable staff and options like chutoro). Okura is a high-volume, energetic restaurant with very good food - just be prepared to pay.

    We had reservations at 5:45, arrived on time and quickly seated in a newer room with high ceiling ( lots of noise, no ambiance at all, two tables in total in this room were seated yet they had about 8 tables opened in this bland room). Requested to be moved was told we couldn’t as they had others waiting for seating. After 20 minutes of nonsense they escorted us to a 4 seater table in their main dining room. Much to my surprise the only good that was up to standards was their Filet Mignon skewers. Between (2) of our bill was almost $180 includes 4 drinks, sushi platter and salad fish with rice. I’ve been going to this establishment for 6 years even when they were in a smaller location. This time was a complete MISS. Food, service, hostesses all around not a pleasant experience. And to think I drove from Palm Springs in the rain for this ???? Not again … So disappointed . And what confused all of us was that all the people waiting to be seated weren’t taken to that back room they put us in….. and when I pointed out to the hostess all she could say was I have to seat the folks waiting to be seated first before I can find you another table. Was it because we were 4 women in our 60’s and 70’s??? We were dressed to the nines and have always enjoyed Okura before and had NO problems HOWEVER THE EXPERIENCE THIS TIME WAS UNPLEASANT . What a shame !!!!!

    Overall our favourite Japanese restaurant in Coachella, I wish the ambiance was a little less noisy - because its hard to hear across the tables when the restaurant is busy, don’t recommend for “quiet” romantic dinner, unless you can get seated in the back of the bar! But for the food and service a solid 10/10

    This was my second visit. The first one was abortive. Fishy fish and I thought expensive. So I have not gone back until yesterday and my experience was much better and I will return. We had some great sashimi, and the service was remarkable. I didn’t ask the waitress her name, but she was attentive, and it was a very good experience because of her. I found the skewered scallops disappointing. Tasteless and overcooked but overall enjoyed my cocktails and meal! Will go back soon.

    This place is busy for a reason! Food is good and it has an energetic vibe. We went for sushi but there is an extensive menu. Nigiri was good, very fresh and nice presentation. Rolls were giant and beautiful but too much rice. Good sake selection.

    We really enjoy the freshness of Okura and the vast choices available. The service is great but can change from time to time depending on really how full the place can get. Patience is a good thing because when it all arrives, it's really good.

    Food was great but expensive. We wanted sushi. Sushi came in a very nicely presentation. Had to ask for small plates for soy sauce? Green tea was awful. Ended up just drinking hot water and lemon instead. Green tea was not drinkable. Waiter was not friendly ! Maybe having a bad day? We were friendly and always said thank you tried to smile at him but he was just Blah! We were put in a ugly back room with lots of families and loud parties. We were 5 adults. The restaurant was beautiful when we walked in so this was disappointing. We were with good friends so just ignored the situation. We were surprised that miso soup was extra charge? No edamame? And overall food was expensive but good. Lots of other sushi restaurants in the desert so we will not be back to this one.

    We decided to take a chance for local restaurant food after tried resort restaurants. We were seated right about the time of the reservation (5:45pm). There was confusion at the beginning. The waitress all the sudden stopped taking our order then we sat there over 20 minutes before our new waiter showed up. The dishes were all okay one at a time after another round of a very long wait (finished the last dish around 7:45pm). The waiter was able to give us discount because of the long wait. Overall okay experience if you are not in a hurry.
