    We had the most enjoyable dinner. We were celebrating our son’s 11th birthday, and the staff and management went above and beyond to make it the most unique and special experience for him. True hospitality!

    AMAZING! My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary and we were both so happy about how amazing the food and service were. We had our own secluded booth, and there was a card signed by the staff with goodies based on what we like to do together waiting at the table for us, no extra charge. We also got a free anniversary dessert! On top of all of that, our food was GREAT! We had absolutely no leftovers. Cannot say enough good things about this place and their staff, we will definitely be coming back.

    The service at O-Ku was exceptional. As someone who appreciates a local touch, I was delighted by the authentic atmosphere. Our server was not only friendly but also well-informed about the menu. He provided genuine insights about the dishes, aiding us in making the most enjoyable choices. The attentive and thoughtful service made the dining experience even more enjoyable. Moreover, the food itself was delicious and made with fresh ingredients.

    We dine at O-Ku all the time and love the food The staff is wonderful and takes great care of us. For my husband's birthday I asked him if he wanted to go someplace really special for dinner and he said "Yes, I want to go to O-Ku!" It's a special place for both of us

    I've become so used to Japanese restaurant menus that I can nearly order without looking, but O-Ku is truly something special. It's less a traditional sushi bar and more an upscale tapas place with a Japanese theme, and I definitely mean that in a complimentary way. I particularly enjoyed the shishito (seasoned, grilled sweet green peppers), something I've somehow never tried before. Highly recommended.

    Had an amazing time at O-Ku for my boyfriend’s birthday! We reserved ahead and were greeted by some special gifts to celebrate. The staff and O-Ku really went above and beyond to make it a special night and the food was absolutely delicious.

    We were traveling from out of state and were in search of the best sushi restaurant in town and definitely found it. The sushi was amazing! Beautiful restaurant, excellent service and one of the best sushi dinners we have had. We will definitely return when in town!
