Fantastic both times. Had the same server (sadly can't remember his name) who was great. Carpaccio, dumplings, and wagyu tartare are all top class. Went for our anniversary this past time and manager even gave us a free entree as well. Definitely one of our favorites

Also, one of the dishes we ordered never arrived but it wasn’t on the check either so it was fine. Ambiance/decor is very nice though!

Maybe a cross between the sweetness of the Santa Barbara and a bit of brininess reminiscent of the Japanese Uni. Loved everything. Keep up the good vibes, O-Ku. You are the best!

Excellent service. The ambience is upscale, but not cozy, as seating is exposed and the noise level is a bit high. We are going to return often.

I was told that my meal was accidentally placed with the takeout order. When I did receive meal It was cold. At that time I was then a bit frustrated. The manager did offer and took off for the meal however I was still disappointed
