Good sushi

The sushi at Osaka is really great, but the service, as other reviewers noted, is lacking. We did have reservations and were seated quickly, but there were many delays in ordering and receiving our food.

My husband, myself and our family made a reservation for a large group. Once we got there, we were told the whole party would have to be present, which would have been good to know in advance. After fifteen minutes my husband asked if we could sit since the rest of the party was five minutes away and we had... More

We dined at Okaka for our anniversary. We ordered sushi which was excellent. It took awhile to get to the table, but was very good. We both ordered a flight of saki. When done with that sake my husband wanted a glass one of the the kinds that was in the flight. The waitress left our table to find out... More

I love this restaurant. It's my husband's first choice when going to Springfield. We always order the sushi rolls, and we have dined in both areas. I like the two menu options. If you sit in hibachi area, it's always a fun experience. The drinks are good as well.

So, we tried Osaka. The waitress was not friendly and messed up the simplest of orders and the Hibachi chef was not of high quality, nor was his behavior appropriate. As far as the food goes, the soup and salad were great and the hibachi was average. Our sushi appetizer was warm and tasteless. $150 not worth it! Will not... More

We made a reservation - we would recommend this as most people were standing around to get a table. We sat down right away. The food was awesome but the wait staff (not the bus boys) need to take a happy pill! Just a little bit of a smile or extra effort would go a long way.

I took my family there for a birthday celebration. It is not a cheap evening by any means, but an enjoyable one. My adult sons like their sushi and I like the filet. There were 7 of us and our server...Scott...did a great job. The Chef...Ada...was very entertaining and I would request him on our next visit. It is a... More

I have visited Osaka multiple times and have to say the food is ok, however, the drinks pours are a disappointment. I ordered a vodka martini and received a glass a little over half full for a premium price. Same happened with my bourbon. Almost every other place in town will fill the glass for less money. The habachi was... More
