Food was only so-so in flavor and came out room temperature at best. If hibachi style food is on the menu it should come out hot.

We went to Okada to celebrate my daughter's fifth grade promotion. She requested sushi. Decor upon entering is beautiful, and right away you can see the sushi chefs at work. We were greeted and seated promptly . Our waitress was very polite and prompt with drinks and taking our orders. We got several different types of sushi, all beautiful and delicious. My children gobbled it all up (seaweed salad is one of their favorites). We ended with banana tempura and mango & strawberry mochi (my husband, never one for sweets, was surprised he liked it a lot). All in all it was a fabulous (yet pricey) celebratory meal.

We waited for 45 minutes for my daughters meal to come out after our sushi and other hot items had already been delivered to the table. No one checked in with use, provided an update or apologized when my daughters food 45 minutes later showed up at the table - when we had all finished our meal. Nothing was done in terms of compensation on the check, no manager came over to apologize, it was handled very poorly.... the food overall was good, but terrible service and cold hot meals.

Wonderful restaurant. My family came here for Mother's Day this past Sunday. It took awhile to get seated, but eventually we did, and we were thanked for our patience. The menu consists of many sushi dishes, teriyaki dishes, and also some Chinese food, which helps if you have a non-sushi lover dining with you. Also they have a good selection of cocktails and desserts. The decor is tasteful and intriguing, and the nose level is lovely but not too loud. I highly recommend this restaurant.

since we found this place a couple years ago, it is now the only place we go for sushi. Super fresh and really good. But they have a lot of other dishes as well. Something for everyone.

My husband and I love Okada and dine there often. The decor is beautiful, the service is impeccable, and the food is downright delicious. We particularly love the Teriyaki Chicken Bento Box and the Salmon Bento. There is always more than enough parking as well. Every time we go it is a thoroughly marvelous dining experience.

Sushi and sashimi are always fresh and high quality. Specialty rolls and small plates are excellent. Even my kids live their junior bento boxes and the special spring loaded chopsticks they give them.

Overall, great experience. My friend and I received great service and very much enjoyed our food while at Okada. The tables were a bit close together, but listening in on the first date next to us turned out to be one of the highlights of our evening. The sushi was great, the sake was delicious and the service was top-notch.

Nice place, well-priced, good food... Only issue: Too many jammed-together tables. There were several empty tables in more desirable spots. Hostess said “sorry, they’re reserved.” It was 5:45 PM on a Friday. We sat at the bar instead. After an hour, half of the “reserved” tables were still empty. Sad.

The food was great. The only problem with the service was it felt like they added a table for our reservation but it didn't fall into one of the regular sections for a server so our server was slow at times getting to us.

Definitely going to go back.

The restaurant was large and the tables are centered around a very nice looking sushi prep area. There was a manager walking around who paid attention to every little detail. She noticed my friend's hat had fallen on the ground and she stopped to pick it up. I really appreciated the level of service. The sushi was good, but not the best I've ever had.

Now our favorite Japanese restaurant in the area! A bit pricy for every day, at least for us... but you get what you pay for. We will enjoy treating ourselves again soon as there were still many things on the menu we would like to try.

The service ruined it for me. The waiter was MIA for the second part of the meal - I had to beg someone (so few servers that night) to give me a check so I could pay (waited more than 20 minutes after we finished our meal to find a waiter and then another 10 minutes to get our bill and another 15 minutes to get our bill with credit card picked up, credit card receipt for signature and get credit card back).
