We had a reservation at 7:30 for 8. We were not seated until 8:05 so that’s a bummer we had to wait. Apparently the kitchen was backed up on orders so we waited awhile for our sushi too. Our server was outstanding. Johnny. He was on top of our drinks and appetizers and made sure we felt comfortable and taken care of.

The wine list is limited and overpriced. The Vuzu sauce is amazing, ask for it separately. The food is tasty. The reason why I was not generous with the stars stems from my experiences at five star restaurants.

Really, really great! We have eaten at a few other sushi restaurants in the desert and before visiting this one we were about to give up on them entirely! The others had either crappy service, poor management, huge gaps in their menu, dirty dishes (and in one case all 4!). So I am well pleased that I can say there IS an excellent sushi restaurant in the valley!

Very busy! Was told they book multiple parties at each time slot so it may be a while longer than normal, wasn't expecting that! I think the prices may be a touch expensive, but the happy hour menu is great.

My friends & I had the All You Can Eat for dinner tonight. It was AMAZING! I think it’s some of the freshest and best sushi i’ve ever had in my life. Pretty good price for all the stuff that you can order off of the menu. The restaurant has a very cool vibe to it as well. When you’re first seated, the hostess says “Namaste” and every worker says it back when you enter the dining room. They made us feel very welcomed. Although, I didn’t see a server for about 15 minutes, so the manager came over and took our order twice. We did end up seeing our server and he did apologize for showing up to our table later than expected. It seems as if he had too much on his plate. Everything was fabulous besides the service. If the server didn’t have that many tables, i’m sure our service would’ve been better. Highly recommend though!

The ambiance is lacking. More of a sports bar feel. Seaweed salad was drowning in “sauce”, had to send it back. Took 35 minutes for our sushi to come out, which was all covered in sweet slimy sauce. Would not recommend or return.

I made a reservation for a birthday, which was apparently ignored as I saw other tables receiving birthday desserts and we were just handed a dessert menu with mo acknowledgment of a birthday. I was disappointed to see that the restaurant has taken out the beautiful bar to make room for a larger sushi section. Last time I was at Okura it was an elegant, upscale dining experience. Now it was noisy and people were in jeans, etc. the service was only adequate. The waitress was bringing our drinks and began to serve us when someone at the next table caught her, interrupting her service to us. Rather than asking that person to wait, she proceeded to talk to him while holding our drinks on the tray. I tried to get her attention at which point she kept on talking to the other table and plopped our drinks on the table, not even serving the right drink to the right person. I told her I thought this was very rude. The food, however, was delicious and I would come here again for casual dining because of the food, but the ambiance was not what I expected and would not recommend Okura for a special occasion or an upscale dining experience.

We have loved Okura ever since it used to be in Palm Springs. It’s our special night out place. The food is always amazing. The service was a little slower than usual this last visit but that was completely expected because it was SO BUSY!!!! All in all, it’s an amazing place! A must visit for everyone to try.
