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.

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

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
