Looked busy but went in and found it to be larger than it looked The grill side was very busy The restaurant side had many open tables. The food and sushi was excellent. I really liked the place. I will be back

Celebrated my son's dinner with hibachi as Osaka - as usual it was great! I had the filet hibachi - noodles and fried rice. Dinner was entertaining and they brought ice cream for my son to celebrate.

My husband and I dined here last night for the first time, granted we have ordered take out sushi before (always good). We came in around 8:30 and the dining area was not very busy. The hostess was able to seat us right away at a table but we asked to get a booth. She said it would be just... More

Had the seafood combo pad Thai $13. Very good and plenty to eat. Their lunch boxes are a great deal as well. Also have a hibachi side but make a reservation for that

Server came and took drink orders, disappeared for 15 minutes, came back took food order, still no drinks. Couldn't find him for 15 minutes. He brings food... Some of it. Apparently he didn't put my order in, he disappears... More

Osaka is a pretty typical Japanese style restaurant in the US, but my family and I have had several meals there over the past few months and have never been disappointed with the food. I should note that we never elect to eat at the utensil juggling, salt-shaker pounding grill side of things, so all of our meals have been... More

My family and I went there for an early dinner, and I am disappointed that I had to ask for the special sauce for the chicken katsu that we ordered. The waitress finally brought us a teriyaki sauce which is not the same as the sauce for the katsu. I have eaten to many Japanese Restaurants, so I have a... More

Service was a little slow and I was upset that I couldn't get hibachi while on just the dining side, but the food I had was great! And the drinks were amazing.
