Had reservations for outdoor but due to weather we decided to sit inside and they were able to accommodate us very easily. Best sushi roll was the Tennessee Two Step. The Tebasaki is under rated and felt it was the best thing we ate. It’s tiny chicken wings which were tender and came right off the bone.. so flavorful and tasty!! The Asian Mixed Greens salad - the sesame dressing made this salad amazing! The Onna Old Fashioned was surprisingly quite tasty. Overall totally satisfied and would go back for the wings any day of the week!

The desert was not good however, so skip that. Probably one of the worst crème brûlée and chocolate lava cakes we have ever had but everything else was first class. It was our anniversary so they seated us on a great table and served champagne. This is what keeps us coming back!

Just place your order earlier than you think you want it. Our server Clinton was the best! Great at what he does and seems to love his job and love people.

The service was top notch and atmosphere was perfect for a nice date. Both of the rolls we ordered were delicious and they even brought out some dessert for free because we were celebrating! I highly recommend O-Ku!

So was the Macha Mocktail. The duck was tasty but a bit dry and the peppers were a nice side. Service was great, prices are not bad and the restaurant is nice inside. It is unfortunate that you have to pay for parking and at the moment the restaurant is in the middle of a building site! Will Uber back once the work around restaurant completed and the menu change finalized.

The space itself was inviting and new. Cons: It was a little too loud. So much so that when our waitress explained the menu to us, as she turned her head to talk to the whole table, I could no longer hear her when she wasn't directly talking in my direction. It took them an hour from our reservation time to get us 3 sushi rolls total. We had to leave before we could order more as we had plans after dinner.

I’ve eaten here a dozen+ times, and I am always pleased with the service, food, drinks, and overall experience. I love the Predator roll, the Playboy roll, the Sugar and Spice cocktail with tequila, and the truffle edamame. Just a great spot!

We shared the rock shrimp and Kung Pao Cauliflower to start. Moved onto rolls including the Playboy, Titan Up and Tennessee Two Step - these are not for those that are sushi purists but they are delicious. We also shared the truffle mushroom risotto - Yum! If you like Japanese Whiskey - they have an awesome selection - ask for the list. Food here is great, service is wonderful and atmosphere fun. Can't wait to go back!
