I’m obsessed with this restaurant! We don’t go as often as we should, but it’s a special treat when we do!

OKO was washing off tables - doing everything they could to keep people separated by a table between them etc... Crazy times we are living in right now! Food was awesome and the Servuce attentive and attuned to customers needs. Always awesome food!

The food is really amazing. Unfortunately that means you will keep ordering more till you have spend all the money haha. Fantastic quality. If you’re going to spend the money to eat out. Spend it on quality. Strongly recommend.

It was a very small restaurant. A bit too small. It's hard to enjoy a restaurant when the tables are so close together and the butts of the wait staff are at face level when they are clearing tables next to you. A lot more children in the restaurant than I was expecting.

Delicious! Very creative dishes. Mostly sushi and sashimi, but plenty of options for the less adventurous eater. Staff is attentive and friendly. They were very knowledgeable about celiac disease and prepared food safely for my daughter who has celiac.

I love Oko and this visit was no exception. For perspective, I live in Manhattan during the week and before this visit I flew in from Japan after a week and went there the next day. So I eat great sushi often. And this is up to that quality. Fresh, inventive, consistent. The tempura is great, too. Excellent drinks menu. I wish there were a bit more space. Otherwise no knocks at all.

This was my fifth visit to Oko, which I loved on previous visits. However; both the food and service this time around were poor.

It started out not in the best foot. I came as a solo diner with a reservation and had to wait 20 minutes in the door way. It was a bit uncomfortable. I sat at the bar, which had just cleared out but the bar servers seemed to be quite distracted. I have been a couple times previously and it was great but this time was disappointing.

Oko is a most welcome addition to the dining scene in Westport. The sushi is fantastic! So was the spicy tuna on a rice cake. I've never had more flavorful miso soup. Our server was terrific and gave us wonderful suggestions. I'm glad that we didn't missing ordering the ice cream sundae with butterscotch sauce and the kit kats. I can't wait to go back.

This was our second visit to Oko. The first time we loved the food but we all noticed a really strong cooking smell on entering the restaurant! Not taking too much notice as the food was outstanding.
However, every item of clothing (and our hair too) the 3 of us wore had to be washed as it reeked of food odors when we left the restaurant. We hung our coats outside to air on and off for almost a week to ditch the strong odor!
Then because we loved the food so much we thought we would give it another try a couple of days ago, leaving our coats at home and suffering the cold! The food was really good but not as good as the first visit. But again the smell on our clothing wasn't great. Not as bad as the first time but we definitely had to wash everything. It kind of puts me off going again as the food is good, which is what it's all about.
But they really need to upgrade their extraction system from their kitchen!

I almost hate writing a good review (because it will make getting a reservation that much harder!!!). The bottom line is : OKO is FANTASTIC. You cannot go wrong - stop by for a drink at the bar and grab a quick bite of edamame or Sushi or these addictive little Bao Buns. Really awesome. All
The things you want to eat and all the things you are never going to make at home ... Unless you are Chef Brian (and I wonder if on his days off he ever just reaches for a big old hat of Fluff..? Cannot see it... anyway. Go. Have a fantastic Clemintina Cocktail at the bar or any of their other carefully concocted cocktails. Ask advice as to ordering from any server and they will ask you questions to figure out what would work best for you or your table. ENJOY!!!

The food in this place is great. Everything is delicious! Loved the yakisoba, chef selected hand rolls, and the bao was off the chain. I wish the acoustics were better so I could hear the awesome playlist over the chatter. Otherwise excellent!!

Overall we had a great diner in spite of the service very much lacking which I never found to be the norm at OKO actually the service is usually excellent so that was a bit disappointing
The food was great as usual

I was expecting more from this place. Everything was fine, no major blunders, but I just had higher hopes. It looks like a very cool space from the outside, but inside the ambiance isn’t quite there. The food and cocktails we had were average, but nothing super memorable. The presentation of the food is better than the food itself - especially the sushi. Overall, this seems like an average restaurant dressed up (and priced) as a high-end one. I’m not sure we will be back - I’d rather go to Kawa Ni.

Food was OUTSTANDING! The flavors of the sushi from the chefs selection was incredible, and so fresh I felt like Remy from the movie Ratatouille when he was trying all those flavors together! What an amazing blend of seasonings, it melts in your mouth. Poke bowl was delicious as well.
We are foodies and have just recently moved to the area, we will be frequenting here for sure. This chef absolutely knows what he is doing. Loved it.

It was solid. We just moved from NYC and the sushi, for the most part, was very comparable in terms of quality.
Service was good not great. No complaints but just didn’t hit that next level.
Drinks were also good.
Overall for us it was a high 3.X/4 but we expect a lot.
We will go back

They try to do too much with many of their dishes often masking the true taste of the fish.
