    This has become one of our regular stops five dinner. The staff is very well trained: attentive, available, & helpful. The food is fresh & tasty. Nicely presented. We’re pretty picky, but Okura more than passes the test!

    I sat at the bar. The bartender/server, Carlos, was attentive and friendly. I told his manager that he was awesome. The food was just okay, the beef skewers were room temperature, not hot. The tempura a little on the greasy side. Not terrible, but not great either.

    The food here was quite average or perhaps even below average for what I expected from a nice sushi restaurant and certainly for the prices. We were seated toward the end of the shift so the waitress was most concerned with us knowing that.

    Great food, great service and nice ambiance is standard at Okura Robata Grill and Sushi Bar, and we were not disappointed. Bianca provided great service as she was attentive and friendly. Our food came out well timed for the evening. All of the food was delicious and perfectly cooked. The owner/manager paid us a visit to check on our meal and service which is a nice touch.

    Do not sit at the sushi bar they are just an assembly line and they don’t serve or even talk to you. A waiter/waitress takes your order. They don’t even crack a smile. They look absolutely miserable and unhappy. Very unfortunate and boring!!!

    We had an issue with Okura on our bill and they added items, including expensive drinks to our bill and we were severally over-charged by the waiter. Not only were we overcharged, we asked the waiter to split the bill evenly between myself and my daughter and to only put a tip on my portion of the bill. The waiter screwed this up and a tip was added to both bills. It still has not been totally resolved!

    I made a reservation for myself and two sons. We were seated close to a very large party and the noise level was uncomfortable. We asked a server to please reseat us and he went to check. He came back and said he could not. We got up to leave and noticed three empty seats at the bar. He didn’t even suggest to us that was a possibility to sit there. We stayed because my sons were hungry but we will not be back.

    Our server needed to take off her mask, we couldn’t hear her and she kept touching it and bringing it up and down, what’s the point. Our second round of sushi took a long time and wasn’t as good as the first round. The gal that served the water was on it as well as the other servers that were slivering food. It just took our server a long time to complete A task.

    Excellent meal, very fresh and delicious. The only criticism I have is that they served it too fast. We had appetizers, then some skewers and then sushi. We had planned to have it in courses, but everything arrived almost at once. It was a bit overwhelming. Also, the wine pour was fine, but on the second glass they definitely shorted me, so I complained, and they brought back a new glass that was just like the first one I had. Good experience and enjoyable.

    We’ve been coming here since pre pandemic times. We ordered the sashimi sampler, 1 hand roll, and 1 spider roll. We found the sashimi to be extremely bare in its presentation, which in previous visits, had been a work of art. The hand roll was more rice then filling and the spider roll smaller then previously experienced All items came with a good serving of ginger, but little to no wasabi. The service and ambiance was spectacular as always, but prices and food did not live up to our expectations.
