I really recommend the Surf and Turf and the Fried oyster makis. Also the cocktail with a number made with rum, tequila, sugar and lime peel but there may... More

We chose O-Ku based on reviews that we truly didn't believe. I'm so happy to tell you that the food was better than expected and the service was exceptional. Heather, from Missouri via Savannah, was a true gem! She was attentive and genuine. She exceeded our expectations and opened up about her passions. The GM was attentive and courteous. The... More

We are a Japanese family and we know good sushi. This was really good sushi. The chef used creativity in creating interesting, fresh, and flavorful dishes. Every bite was exquisite. There was an electric violinist playing during dinner. That was interesting.

A great option if you love Japanese cuisine, we had a mixture of sushi, sachimi and some of the chef's specialities, and did not feel that any of the dishes let the side down. You can eat more formally, or have it more tapas style and have the food served as it is ready from the kitchen. A great variety... More

Passing by this place for years I have always assumed it to be a pretentious Martini Bar, but I never gave it a try until this weekend. It turns out to be a pretty pretentious martini bar that also serves great sushi! And hey, if people want to dress to the nines to go out for sushi and a drink... More
