    Wonderful atmosphere. The meat and sushi are cooked perfectly. Very prompt service. The late night happy hour is the best in AC with great deals and a DJ. They have a great selection of whiskey and sake as well. Don’t miss this spot if you come to Atlantic City!

    We enjoyed some the best sushi I have ever tasted. Edamame dumplings in a broth were topflight. Seaweed salad was sweet and flavorful. The surf and turf roll (forgot the actual name) was dynamite. The service was attentive and informative, atmosphere was perfect for an Asian restaurant.

    We had an amazing dinner at Ossu. Our server Roberto was great with recommendations with the menu. We went with the chef selection combo and the fish was fresh and fantastic. It allowed us to try new fish that we wouldn’t typically order. The pork belly skewer was also my husband’s favorite. We will absolutely dine here again in the future.

    The restaurants is fresh as can be. The only issue is they cut down their menu too small. They removed so many items when finally reopened. Mostly all sushi so if you don’t care for that toe of food this is not the restaurant for you.

    This restaurant had a nice ambiance and appreciated the DJ spinning to make it a fun evening. I was disappointed in how salty all the food items were. They were difficult to enjoy even though all of the items were cooked properly. Got some relief from the sushi rolls. Would not recommend if salt sensitive.

    Beautifully presented sushi rolls were the highlight of the evening; they were fresh and delicious as well. The decor is modern and appealing, with community high tops (mid tops), single tables and sushi bar seating available. Our server was prompt, friendly and explained the menu thoroughly. Would definitely return.

    I was so excited to Ossu! As soon as you walk in it looks like you are on the streets of Japan! Our waitress Leylani (I hope that is spelled correctly) was phenomenal! So much energy, she was very attentive, couldn’t ask for anyone better! She deserves recognition. For me sushi restaurants are a hit or miss, and Ossu is a hit for me! I wish I got more hot plates, the couple things we ordered melted in my mouth. We had deep fried kani crochets, and the poke belly. We did a couple simple sushi rolls and a sushi, sashimi fish, and everything was fresh! Can’t wait to go back!

    The food is really sub par, most thing where over salted, tasteless or inadequately prepared. The eggplant was under cooked and rock hard, poke bowl was over salted gluey and tasteless, sushi rolls hard tasteless, ribs tender with ok sauce, filet was ok , but the edamame dumplings were fantastic and the only reason for a few stars. Hope they up their game as we usually love this kind of food. I guess there is a reason there are always reservations to be had.

    It was our first time at Ossu, and let me tell you the experience was outstanding!!! Right when we walked in up until we left- everyone was friendly and attentive. They have a very good team: the hostess, the waitresses, the chef,- all on the same page. Now let’s talk about food. Boy or boy was it tasty! We got quite a variety of everything and I was impressed and let me tell you I’m very picky!!! You can’t impress me easily. The edamame was out of this world- I have never tasted them in such a unique seasoning! You just have to try them. The salmon and beef on grill was juicy and delicious, even my toddler liked them. The sauce that it comes with is heavenly ,- if you like hot ,- you will love it. The grilled mushrooms were good as well. We also got a variety of their special sushi rolls- I was impressed with their creamy texture. My favorite was the Daburu and Umami roll. Oh, and Mochi was so good. The Lychee and coconut stood out to me the most. Overall the food and service was so good that I already made another reservation for tonight!!
