I came for dinner at 7 PM , when almost all Lagunas good restaurants are full - in Okura it was only one table occupied , restaurant was empty - first bad sign. When I ordered beef robata (skewers) the waitress brought it in 2 minutes !! So it was 100 percent left over from all you can eat lunch - taste awful.... Wagyu Caesar salad was even worse - a lot of cheese and heavy dressing. And the sell it for high dinner prices. DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE

We just ate at Okura, and first of all we ordered off the happy hour menu. The food is great, but they have no clue what’s going. We waited a long time for our drinks, our waitress said the bartender had been very busy, which I could see, she had been busy making drinks for everyone who came in after us. We ordered the sashimi sampler, 4 piece. After a long wait they brought the Big sashimi sampler which I think is $40. We said we didn’t order this. Finally we asked our waitress for our drinks and she looked at our empty table and said you didn’t get your drinks? No, you would see them on our table. Food arrived, rice cakes not great as described elsewhere but the roll was very good and the sashimi tasted excellent. Ordered a second roll, which came pretty quick and five minutes later a guy brought another roll and said here’s your second roll. They over charged me for my drink but changed it, no problem. I don’t write this to be nasty, but whoever owns this business, you have great food, you need to get on your staff because they don’t know what’s going on!

Okura has gone down hill since our last visit, Service was slow. The portions were very small and overpriced. Will not return.

Best Japanese restaurant in town! Fun place with a modern vibe. Hubby and I love this place. Some of our favorites are the garlic edamame, gyoza, caterpillar roll, hamachi jalapeño roll, dragon roll, James Dean Roll, and so many more. Our favorite sake is the Aladdin sake. It comes in a cute bottle you can take home. Alway's a fun time when we dine here. Josh, one of the many great servers we've had here did an excellent job providing outstanding customer service. We also appreciate his outgoing and friendly personality. Christine also does an excellent job of making sure the customers are happy. It's fun to watch the head chef, and the sous chef create their master pieces. And masterpieces they are. Sit at the sushi bar, or close by and watch. This restaurant is definitely fit for us foodies and our foodie friends. We will be back!
