The food is excellent, but the owner Diane makes the atmosphere appealing and she greets every customer with open arms. I claim her as my sister. I will forever come back to Otaki's because of Diane. I'm a customer of 8 years.

Went with friends who really enjoy this restaurant, and we could see why. Great experience - both food and service! Sushi was great, and my wife also enjoyed her scallop dish.

I eat here every few weeks. It is a wonderful place to go for birthdays and other events. Excellent portions and a great atmosphere. Filet and chicken is the best in my opinion.

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant for 8 years - and it's only gotten better each time. The sushi is amazing, their house rolls are so delicious, the fish always super fresh. We have taken friends here with us, and they all love it. We go out of our way to get to this place. The... More

We dined late Friday night. Bar and sushi bar separate from the main dining area with a fun atmosphere.Chef was great with the normal entertainment. Server was very warm and welcoming . We all three had steak and scallops. Steak was very tender and scallops were cooked to perfection. We will definitely return.

This could be the best ace in Jax to get Sushi. The Sushi chefs are highly trained and have very unique rolls and approach. The other menu is great too but we always end up getting sushi because we can't resist.

My daughter really loves a Japanese cooking table and we've struggled to find a good one in Jacksonville until now. I was really pleasantly surprised by this one and liked it so much we went again a week later. I can only speak for the hibachi table and not the rest of the restaurant, but we thoroughly enjoyed the meal... More

Otaki was suggested by a friend, so I tried it. The food was good, but not very good or excellent. Service was very attentive and the overall experience was very good, but not particularly exceptional.

We stopped for dinner since my daughter and her friend love sushi. We ordered off of the hibachi menu but sat at a regular table. The food was just disappointing. The rice did not have much flavor. The vegetables were primarily onions. The seafood was good but not very seasoned. The sushi was mediocre. Overpriced.

Stopped here on our way to the cigar bar next door. The place was nice and the cook was friendly. Prices for lunch were very reasonable. I would go back.
