Good food and great service

This is a place where you can get OK sushi but excellent service. We've been there a few time and it's always consistent.

An excellent meal started off with the kobe beef which was divine and the steamed dumplings which were very good. Main course was a selection of Sashimi and sushi selected by the head chef, i have to say that was amazing and filling. On the whole a quite pricey but we did have two bottles of red too. Best sushi... More

The best quality sushi in miles. Good service. Fresh fish. Nice people. Great take-out. Only draw back is the Specialty rolls are waaaaaay to pricey.

Execellent all around. Very good sushi, sashimi, and noodles. Service is generally reliable. Rarely a wait. Good for families or couples. There are two levels and they do a good job of separating out adults from families. We've never had anything other than a very positive experience at Osaka.

I've now been to Osaka two times. The first was a wonderful experience--the fish was FRESH, the menu diverse, the food superb, the service...excusable. All of this led me rather foolhardily to return within the week, this time with additional people, and enthusiastically order more fish than rational justified. Regardless, this time, to my surprise, the fish was not at... More

Osaka is a perpetual favorite of ours and one of the top sushi restaurants in the entire area. I would recommend a reservation on weekends or peak times. I especially recommend a reservation if you wish to sit upstairs away from the host/bar area which can get a bit busy with people doing takeout. The service is good here and... More

We have come here many times over the years. The sushi is quite good. We came in at 7:45 on a weeknight and asked to sit upstairs- away from the TV over the bar, and the bad music from behind the sushi station. we were told they were closing soon. ( really @ 7:45?) The next couple came in and... More

Osaka has a warm and friendly atmosphere. The food is exceptional and the wine list is also amazing. I have had sushi all over the world and this is one of my favorites. We now go all of the time because we found a gem so close by. Besides the sushi the soups and appetizers are also succulent! Try the... More

This is second time for Osaka and it is consistently good. Ingredients fresh, service prompt and attentive and prices reasonable. The interior is gray and quiet. Add the green tea and it is time for a peaceful meal!

I've been to this Osaka at least a half dozen times and I've never had anything close to a bad experience. The fish is fresh, the menu innovative and the ambience is fine. (It could use a little sound deadening, though). Appetizers, 3 drinks, sushi for 3 and a cooked meal for the fourth and the tab $156. No one... More
