Okura still stands out... as a cut above at Sushi resturants... Good all around Japanese cuisine... sushi, soup and robatta.

Suggested by a friend who wanted to go for their birthday, it's one of their special occasion spots. The food was fresh and higher end not your basic sushi spot. Modern classy atmosphere. Good service.

i have never been disappointed with the food at Okuras. I order mostly sushi, sashimi, edamames and shishito peppers. Adam is a great bartender and server. The staff is always friendly. Even the owners are nice:)

Several thinks went wrong. First, the drink ordered they no longer have but it is still on menu. Second, they brought my entree with the appetizers. I finished my food before my even got his. Third, they charged us wrong on our bill. And lastly, they forgot to give me my credit card back.

This is the third time we have had bad service.
If the food wasn’t so darn good , we wouldn’t go back.

We made a 9 o clock open table reservation, arriving 10-15 minutes early. Upon arrival the hostess was looking at the computer and didn't look up until i had to say reservation.. then all she said was my name and took us to table, not very friendly to start. Our server was very friendly but getting say at 850, ten minutes early from our reservation, we were informed we had to order the all you can eat in ten minutes ( all rounds) which wasn't informed online or on the all you can eat menu. So we quickly ordered both rounds before even enjoying our drinks we ordered. One of the fried shrimp appetizers came out the little mini ones that are in the glass cup with lettuce which we've ordered many times previous , except this time the shrimps were cold. Normally their hot like they just been cooked, we got one more and same thing, cold! The other items we got were delicious as usual. But before we even got our second round which was at 905 pm, We were informed last call already done including drinks!! Luckily our server who was very nice let us order one more beer. The website said the place closed at 930. They accepted a 9pm reservation, how can you not order anymore beverages when you haven't even gotten all your food yet! Ridiculous! Before even finishing our food the lights were all turned on and everyone was cleaning and it was definitely a weird atmosphere, where we didn't get offered to order dessert as well! For a 120$ bill for a party of 2. We will def never make a late reservation. They should not take reservations late or they should warn you online or upon arrival that the experience will not be what it normally is, which is rushed and not the quality you want when dining and spending money on a date night

This was our third visit. The first two were for happy hour and we loved it. This time we sat in the restaurant dining room to celebrate my husband's birthday. This is our new favorite Japanese restaurant. The garlic edamame is unique in that it is loaded with garlic and sauce. Very tasty and not like the usual edamame in other places. We love the Agadashi tofu in broth. You would never believe you're eating tofu. We then had the softshell crab - TO DIE FOR!! We share the black cod and it was wonderful. Our server, Kelly, was terrific as was all the servers in attendance. She was fun, helpful and made excellent suggestions. You will not be disappointed in this restaurant.

My friend and I decided to try the All You Can Eat sushi option. At $36 per person it is a little more pricey than some of the AYCE options at other local sushi restaurants. The sushi was great though and although the restaurant was packed, the food came out pretty quickly. Our waitress was also friendly and attentive. Overall a great experience!

Love, love, love this place! We always make a point of eating there when we are in the desert. My partner does major damage with the AYCE menu and the servers and Jay (the owner) could not be more cheerful about it...particularly Jay, who recommended other things we had yet to try! Great Lychee martinis too. Even on Saturday night, when the restaurant was packed because of Labor Day visitors, the service was fast and friendly
