Food is excellent. Inside is so loud it would be hard to hear across the table. Patio is nothing special but very enjoyable for sound and conversation

The exterior is not very inviting but the interior is well designed and laid out. Ample seating for a very busy restaurant. We were generally disappointed with the sushi. The salmon sashimi was terrific. For example the crab was a very mushy consistency. We did not like the texture.
Service was fine. We had reservations and were seated right away. Plenty of parking.
Overall we thought the sushi was not as good as Mitch's.

We were looking for a good Japanese style restaurant in the Coachella Valley. Okura definitely surprised us with a great menu, ambiance, and service. Our dinner included oyster shooters, sunomono with tako salad, miso soup, a scallop small plate, the Volcano Roll, and an order of hamachi sashimi. For drinks, we tried both a sweet unfiltered and a dry filtered sake. Both were great,and my vote goes to the dry filtered which includes a cute bottle to take home for use as a vase. We had reservations (highly recommended), but arrived 30 minutes early and were able to get a night top table in the bar area. Service was very good there, though the noise level may be a bit higher than the dining room. Next time we plan to sit at the sushi bar and ask the chefs for recommendations. Overall great experience, and we plan to return soon.

Food was quite good -fresh & tasty. Outside patio seemed to need a bit of care and ambiance, not really even like part of the restaurant. We sat out there because it was so cold (air conditioned) in the restaurantt. Heard others comment on that and move outside Service a little slow as it took some time for our order to arrive and it wasnt that busy, but our waiter was pleasant and professional. Overall high marks.

Very busy. Lighting in the back area where we were seated was extremely dark. I am only 37 years old and I literally had to pull out my phone and use the flashlight to view the menu because straining my eyes are starting to give me a headache. Not sure how elderly people in the community very busy. Lighting in the back area where we were seated was extremely dark.

This is actually one of my favorite restaurants....a favorite for a date night with my husband. We went with friends this time and found the food a little disappointing. The sauce for the Chilean Sea Bass, normally my favorite meal there, but this time it was a little too salty....and too much soy. Even my husband said his prime rib steak dish was not up too par. Maybe the kitchen was too busy as the the place was jammed!!! We were a little disappointed.

A little expensive but food is good. There is always one or two people in any restaurant who think they need to speak and laugh loudly which ruins everybody else experience. If you are one of those people, try considering others and keep your experiences at your own table. Thank you.

When they first opened we found this gem and then after a few more get away weekends we couldn’t remember the name. We came down last weekend and we’re lucky enough to found this wonderful restaurant again! It will now always be on our radar when we visit our favorite getaway town! The best sushi in town. Everyone has always been so wonderful! Thank you 💗

Beyond noisy. After food order taken it took 40 minutes to get the food from the kitchen. Our waiter, Adam, tried to stay away from our table since he knew we had waited so long for our food. Never again for us.
