As Hilton Head locals, we decided to check out Okko Japanese restaurant today for lunch, and as it turned out, our experience at this establishment was one of the best we have had at any of the 250+ restaurants on Hilton Head!
Okko has one of THE nicest, swankiest interiors I have ever seen in a restaurant. (BUT, without the high prices!) When you step into Okko, it's as if you are stepping into another world....one which takes you away from all the stressors of the outside world. Okie has been artfully designed, with an immense amount of attention paid to every bit of the interior, which oozes class, sexiness, swankiness, and relaxation. Ambient, dark-blue accent lighting, rich wood and stone finishes surround you, and ambient, down-tempo trance music plays in the background. There are a variety of seating areas at Okko, including traditional Hibachi-tables, a fantastic bar area with televisions, traditional restaurant seating (booths), a sushi bar, as well as an outdoor area, as well. Okko would be best suited for a romantic date night out, a business meeting, a girls night, or night out with friends. The atmosphere is a bit high-end for children.
Our waitress was very sweet and knowledgeable about the menu. She was attentive, and more importantly, the food was presented to us in an incredibly timely fashion.
THE FOOD & MENU
All-around PHENOMENAL. The menu is very large, and offers a variety of choices, ranging from many sushi options, to Japanese hibachi-style dishes, as well as Thai options, too. My husband ordered hibachi chicken, which was delicious and came with a variety of sauces, salad, rice, and vegetables, and I ordered the 2-roll sushi lunch special, which was also wonderful, and included soup. The food was freshly-prepared, artfully and skillfully presented, and the portions were plentiful. Additionally, the value was fantastic, as our bill was < $20.00!
In summation, we are already talking about the next time we will visit Okko....it is definitely one of the "hidden gems" of Hilton Head dining!
