This authentic Japanese restaurant has everything you would expect in Japanese food. My wife and I ordered a noodle soup that was way more than we could handle although it was very good. They have an excellent sushi selection as well. We thought the soup, although very large and tasty was rather pricey however.

If you are looking for an authentic Japanese dinning experience, this is the place. There are traditional booths available where you sit on cushions on the floor, with a sunken area for your feet, there is also table and chairs as well as a bar you can sit at. The sashimi here is excellent, large portions and tastes excellent. I... More

great atmosphere and excellent service every time. The food quality, sushi quality is outstanding. And the private rooms are always fun when there with the family or a business meeting.

Over the past 17 years, we've been patronizing O-Sho's with diminishing results. After multiple mess ups, today was the final straw. We ordered for delivery 2 hours in advance for a 6:00 pm delivery and it was 20 minutes late. Not over the top, you might think. However, the order included a hair with our meal. I am completely done... More

We used to order here weekly and I would take clients at least twice a month in addition . Often the order by me and my clients is Chirashidon. The food if they want to serve it, is good quality, a bit westernized. So today, I ordered Age Dashi Tofu (deep fried tofu)was told it was not available then I... More

O-Sho is a great Japanese restaurant, easily the best in the area. Good prices, great food, great service. I especially recommend their "traditional rooms" to eat in. They are not truly traditional, but each table is seperated by mini walls and you do sit in such a way that you 'mimic' how you would sit on the floor to eat... More

Decent food and nice people in this restaurant that used to be a regular on my dinner choice list. However, in the past I thought there were a few actual Japanese cooks/owners/servers, but now I don't believe anyone is. I know, I know, others can cook ethnic food, but I find there is a difference when ethnic food is connected... More

I had the tempura, and it was excellent, except that nothing comes with the entree. Usually miso soup, rice and small pickles come with an entree. You can have them, but have to pay extra. Also expected green tea, but had to pay extra for that as well. The sushi was good and the combinations were good, but again, had... More
