What a great dinner!! The food was amazing and it was exciting getting every dish because each one was better than the other. Highly recommend!

Excellent overall. Food and drinks were amazing and so was the service. Top notch.
Always A great vibe, food, ambiance, service top tier
Great spot with great service and excellent sushi options.
Excellent food and service!!!
Overall a good experience. I think they must have been short staffed because service took a bit longer than expected, but mad respect to service industries workers for working in a the pandemic limbo we're in. Our waiter was very nice and the atmosphere was great. The sushi and nigiri were great and we'll definitely be back. A great birthday dinner.
O-Ku messed up the reservation inspite of having made reservation over a month in advance. While the hosts acknowledged the over booking and screw up on their part we were given tow person table for a party of 3 and put right under the speaker. It really spoiled our mood and damper on the evening. We all felt like we were being punished for their screw up.
My table sat at the rooftop and ordered 15+ or so items from the menu. My favorites were the edamame with truffle oil, firecracker sushi, blueberry mojito, and shogun mixed drink. Cons: The miso soup was saturated in salt and the rock shrimp had a weird soft texture. I’ve had it at other restaurants and it’s better with a crispy skin. Tyler was our server and was really personable but could have been more attentive. It was my friends birthday and the table was given an array of desserts and each staff member personally signed a birthday card for him which was really thoughtful and customer-service oriented. Loved that so much. Overall
it was a good experience and I’ll be back
Great service and great food as usual!
Best sushi rolls, and loved the outdoor rooftop dining experience. A good value for the amount of food you get for your order. Wonderful service - I was celebrating a promotion and the entire waitstaff wrote and signed a card!
Our waiter was great and the food quality was really good and fresh!
We had a lovely time. We had a lovely time. I would come again.
Food was pretty good, a little overpriced. Service was very friendly, waitress was prompt and courteous, but food coming out of the kitchen was very slow.
Only issue is the tables that are right next to the bathrooms. That’s gross. Otherwise, this place is stellar.
Delicious and great ambiance!
We sat out on the Patio- was a nice breeze/ but we’ve been so many times- we prefer eating indoors- it was wonderful as usual! Great HH Mon-Thur 5-7!
Great service and wonderful food!
The food and service are phenomenal here. By far my favorite restaurant in DC!
I have been there at least 5 times and it is super good! But yesterday it wasn’t the level that I expected, the food was ok but not the normal level that I was used to.
Absolutely love O-Ku. They do not disappoint. And the rooftop is 👌🏾
It was amazing. Great service great food.
Tyler was amazing! Food was perfect. Will def come back.
I loved O-Ku! So many options on the menu, great atmosphere, great service. It’s a great place for a special meal. Can’t wait to go back.
We enjoyed their rooftop seating on our first experience here. The server Peter, was very knowledgeable of the entire menu and gave us great recommendations for food as well as drink. They offer an assortment of rolls that were pleasing to the eye and palette. Expect to pay 6 to 9 dollars per piece of nigiri but we found it worth the price. The interaction with the server, well prepared sushi and the perfectly breezy day made O-KU a must return dinning experience.
Good sushi great drinks. Nice combination of rice pearls and ice cream - A+
We truly enjoyed our first O-ku experience and we will definitely be back. The food was delicious and o highly recommend getting the chocolate dessert with the crunch ice cream!
We ordered Several different items to share and everything was great !
Peter is a phenomenal server. He provided excellent service and gave outstanding menu recommendations. Second time in 3 months and already planning our next visit.
Amazing sushi. Amazing vibes. We will be back
This is my favorite restaurant in DC! Last night was lovelym we sat outside and the vibe so amazing. Food was delicious per usual.
Food was just okay for the price. Firecracker roll and yellowtail carpaccio were my favorite of the 5 dishes I tried. Was disappointed in the lollipop wings, as they seemed to lack strong flavor, though others in my party really liked them. The speciality cocktails were really well made (nice presentation and taste).
Five stars for ambiance and our server was very good. Overall, for a small chain sushi restaurant, I had an enjoyable experience. Not the best sushi in the area, especially for the price, but I would come back if invited by friends or in the area for happy hour.
Always love eating at O-Ku! The food and service are always stellar. Things were super slow coming out and a few things we order never made it to the table, but our waiter was really great and did what he could to offset the delays.
Sad the wagyu dumplings are gone but everything (sushi, steak, sashimi) were perfect.
Very Nice and Cozy!
Absolutely loved the experience. Wesley was super helpful and even got me to enjoy seafood for the first time!!! Will come back regularly.
Wonderful food. In a nice setting. Great experience. We will be back.
Very good food and service!
Great place, delicious food!!!
I use to love oku. The service was just awful. I think they were understaffed and overwhelmed. Staff had no clue what they were doing. Drinks came late. My dinner was pretty much all over the place. I’m pretty easy going but this was an awful experience. I’ve dined here over a handful times even had friends birthday dinner during the pandemic. Hopefully they work the kinks out.
