    Came to O-Ku Nashville with a group of twelve on a Saturday night. The service, food and atmosphere were outstanding. Highly recommend. The Playboy roll, Tennessee Two Step roll, General Tso’s cauliflower, and Tuna tacos were all highlights of the meal.

    The omakase was absolutely amazing! Our chef, Kevin, beautifully crafted each piece to perfection. Our server, Emily, was an amazing waitress and honestly went above and beyond for my boyfriend’s birthday! Definitely one of the best Nashville spots I’ve been to.

    Would not recommend the Omakase option. Took about 2.5 hours to get through, the beef tar tar didn't have much flavor and the salmon was over cooked. The Sushi/Sashimi parts of the meal were excellent and the dessert, a matcha cheese cake was excellent.

    We waited 1 hour for our food to arrive. We did not receive our appetizers until after the food had arrived. It was very slow service and mediocre food for the price.

    We made reservations 3 months out only to show up at the restaurant and find out they’re newly closed on mondays. I even received a reservation confirmation text the day prior confirming our reservations. No one from the restaurant called us to notify us that they were now closed and we needed to reschedule. We took and Uber, paid a babysitter, and had friends in town. Very, very unhappy.

    O-Ku - NashvilleResponded on June 9, 2022Hello Lauren, we're truly sorry this happened to you. We went through the proper outlet through open table to make sure all of our reservations on Mondays were taken care of and alerted moving forward when we closed a couple months ago. We are going to be giving you a call shortly to discuss further. -Gabby

    Menu has been thinned out- favorites removed and no iced tea in the south? O ku in Charleston has iced tea as do they other locations. I get that ingredients are more expensive but why trim the menu down? You already raised the prices so why not serve the removed items at a higher price? We won’t be returning for a while. It’s so thinned out that we went to eat after we ate here at the Optimist.
