we were a large group, like 16 people and we were seated very quickly. The service was very fast and good considering how large of a group we were. We asked for separate checks and they honored our request with no issues. We had Hibachi, it was good but nothing out of the ordinary or exceptional. The people that ordered... More

The food was good - but to be honest I thought my waitress was quite rude and acted like we were bothering her. In addition, the back area where we did hibachi was grungy and too dark. When we walked in I saw food all over the ground and when I was leaving you could see what appeared to be... More

I rate this place very good, but understand that is by New England sushi standards only. Those who have eaten sushi in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas or pretty much any other major US city might be disappointed with the sushi in this entire region but far less so with Osaka. This is the area’s most famous shop and... More

My wife and I went into this restaurant and was seated on a lovely porch and we ask for hibachi so they moved us to a hibachi table and served just the two of us. The chef was wonderful, showed the volcano, threw food to catch, making it fun also. Bottom line food was excellent had both chicken and filet... More

i frequent this restaurant at least once every two weeks since it's close to my home. I usually am seated on the porch (winterized) which provides a great view of the city of Northampton. The tables are small but the portions are generous. There is a little sushi, some Chinese, and some fusion as well as hibachi so there's something... More

Osaka has terrific food -- at least one of the best, if not the best, sushi place in the area, although not up to good to high-end NYC standards. The hibachi is also excellent and is both served at the regular restaurant tables and at the Benihana-style grills - complete with entertaining knife skills - available in a separate room.... More

It's funny when I was reading a previous complaint about this place it mentioned the rudeness of the waitstaff on their phones not caring about customers and I thought to myself maybe it was just a bad day. My husband and I decided to try this place out as we love hibachi and I love sushi. When first walking in... More

I can't believe that in almost 4 years of living in the Pioneer Valley that I waited so long to visit Osaka. My boyfriend and I went on a Friday night. We called ahead for reservations, as we expected a long wait. There's a catch with the reservations here though: they won't take 'em if you're a party of two.The... More

It was wonderful! the place is much bigger than it looks but come early. we arrived at 6:30pm and were able to get in but by 7:30pm there was a very long line. The staff was friendly and skilled. Shared a plate of sushi that was fresh and delightful. it can... More

I went to Osaka with a huge party on a Friday night, we had reservations, were seated right away, there was no waiting for anything, and it was so much fun! We had three employees attending to our every need, the minute we were on the last sip of our beer we were offered another. The food was great, I... More
