Excellent shrimp dumplings. The shrimp yakitori was better when veggies were also grilled. Now veggies are left raw. Service is excellent

Very good food. We ordered a sushi rolls and all of them were delicious. The tempura we ordered was light and crispy. We had the mac & cheese too which didn't fit with our sushi but it was good. They just keep bringing out what you order.
Didn't try dessert. We will definitely go back.
Good happy hour too.

I am only reviewing this place in the hopes that owner sees this and works on the service here or this place may not last. We went on a Friday night with a group of four. First order of business was ordering cocktails and it took perhaps 15-20 minutes to get them. Our appetizers actually came out first. This was a little disappointing as you usually hope to have a drink and chat while waiting on your food. The appetizers were an assortment of sushi and sliders as well as the brussel sprouts which we all felt were very well prepared and tasted great. When the cocktails came two of us had ordered very lightly dirty martinis which have been ordered regularly in other restaurants so this didn't seem like a hard order. They came very dirty so after a few sips we had asked for a new one as these were too salty to drink. After the waitress brought the second set they were better but our bill showed 4 martinis at the end. We normally don't say much but asked that at least one drink be taken off the bill. The bill was over two hundred dollars so this did not seem like we were asking too much for something that was not prepared well. We had a visit from the manager after that who's tone was confrontational and he mentioned that if there was a problem we should have come to him first and that now it was a problem that they had rung up the bill already. I have never been treated in such a fashion over something that the waitress would usually take care of. We would go back again as the food was excellent. Our sushi dinner was tasty as well but I am a little embarrassed for them by how the GM represents this place. He looked like he was working hard but I almost would not go back after this but I always give a place a second chance if the food is good.

Discovered Otto in January & have had 2 excellent ventures here. Sat at a bar table both times very well served by bar staff. Beautiful place, very reliable service & the sushi is excellent. Love the lobster roll & king crab roll plus edamame & good drinks. Otto might be our new go-to for sushi, it's well done & well managed. Highly recommended for sushi & bar.

We were looking for something more than the average farein Greenville. This place rocks! Spectacular ambiance friendly, friendly staff. I thought that the sushi was only above-average hence the four stars, but the rest of the Japanese Fusion dishes were very well challenge. Try this place out if you're looking for eccentric Gastropub food in Greenville South Carolina.
