My husband and I and another couple decided to try Osaka this past Saturday evening as we had gotten the Groupon. We were seated promptly, the sushi was fresh and delicious as well as the calamari. The Service was good up until we went to pay the checks. We had two separate checks and two Groupons, but our server stated... More

Very fresh and flavorful. Many choices. We had a groupon type of discount and they were very accommodating. The service was prompt, friendly and helpful. Good intimate place, not set up for large groups as walk ins, but may be able to accommodate if call ahead.

I'm at a loss to understand the good reviews, unless maybe because we were there at an odd time (4:30 PM) we ate yesterday's sushi. We ordered three different rolls and they all tasted the same. The soft shell crab had ONE LEG of crab in the entire roll. Same for the tempura shrimp. The beer selection is poor (not... More

I love this place - it's quirky and quaint and always just busy enough. I love the service because it feels like it is my neighborhood place- always a smile and hello! It is not supper fast or super polished but who needs more of that anyway. It is not a faux place! I'm not a huge fan of sushi... More

Another great visit to Osaka. Our lunch was katsu house salad, tako yaki, crown roll and 911 roll. Each item was fantastic. This is our go-to sushi spot in Louisville.

I stayed at the Marriot in downtown Louisville, KY. After 5 days of eating nothing but steaks, hamburgers, fried food, and other heavy foods, I desperately needed something light and soupy. I'm used to eating various Asian foods throughout the week, so needless to say that I was seeking to find an Asian restaurant near where I was staying. In... More

Went to this restaurant on april 11 with family. We had a young man as our waiter who we knew was brand new, because there was a waitress shadowing him, at first. He never brought my son in laws water in fact he had to get up and go get it himself. Even after bringing our orders to the table... More

Chicken teriyaki was very good. The rolls fell apart but they were pretty fresh. The salad and miso soup were good. Servers were very attentive
