So long as bluefin tuna is on the menu, I won't be going here, and I urge you not to go, either. The bluefin is a marvelous creature, and on the verge of extinction. It's immoral to serve it.

This is a "cut above" most other Japanese resaturants. It is particularly pleasant to eat there. Very good food served in a warm and inviting environment. Highly recommended!

Pleasant, easygoing atmosphere, with consistently fresh and delicately-flavored sushi. The backyard adds an even more relaxing touch in warm weather.

On par with some of the more expensive sushi restaurants, Osaka offers a ton of interesting rolls, has a great garden and a super friendly wait staff. This is one of my go-to sushi places, especially in the summer when I can enjoy the garden.

Small busy place with fantastic value sushi. Biggest pieces in the city. There may be places with more creative
dishes but if you are looking for quantity you can't beat Osaka. One piece of sushi easily would easily make 2 pieces at most other restaurants. On top of it the fish is always fresh and the service friendly. The small restaurant probably tried to decorate in a hip modern way when they first opened but it could probably use a little update at this time. Still the service is great and the food excellent. We do takeout a lot.

This is my favorite place to get sushi in Brooklyn. I think it's better than Blue ribbon sushi in terms of quality of fish for the price. The decor is not much to speak of and it's too bright, but the rolls are fantastic and the raw fish is beautiful You get big gorgeous slices for what you would pay at any sushi restaurant and it is always top quality. I don't recommend the cooked food. I think it's mediocre, but when I want sushi, which is quite often I will go to Osaka every time!

I'm not usually a fan of novelty monster rolls, but Osaka does them well. The sushi is reliably good (if rarely mind-blowing), and the restaurant is comfortable (especially if it's warm enough to sit on the deck). Service is usually friendly, though often on the slow side, though not excessively so.
It's a nice place to get a late meal in the neighborhood, after a movie at Cobble Hill Cinemas.

There is no Japanese at this restaurant, so don't expect authentic Japanese cuisine. The food is OK as "Asian cuisine" and people are nice too.

First, I live by this place and it's easy to get a seat. Second, they have Sapporo (i can't imagine why some japanese restaurants don't). Third, the cocktails are fantastic. Fourth, service is friendly. Fifth, it's not expensive. Sixth, the sushi! I love the sushi and while I admit you can get bettter, the menu is inventive and the food always fresh. I go at least once per week. See you there!

Osaka is hands-down the best sushi in Brooklyn- or Manhattan. Excellent, fresh, creative rolls (try the viagra roll). Lovely outdoor seating, friendly staff, interesting Japanese entrees. Go early on weekends, as there can be a tiny bit of a wait.

I found the service to be very good. We ordered a great deal of food for a party of four people, and had to pack a substantial amount of it to take home. The hostess came over and asked if everything was ok. The busboy kept our glasses full; the waiter warmed up to our table at the end of the night by cracking jokes. We enjoyed the ambience (garden was great).

The food was average at best. The miso broth was flavorful but I didn't like that they used baby bella mushrooms instead of asian mushrooms. The salad dressing was pretty bland (I don't think there was ginger in it).

The sushi pieces were large but didn't have too much flavor to them. The Elvis roll and Mike roll were good for the cost.

I've been eating sushi now for approximatly 20 years, and have eaten in many places. I've now had the pleasure of dining in this fine establishment a few times and everytime the food is better and better. From sushi to sashimi to even the Japanese kitchen this restaurant not only touches on every cornerstone of a Japanese restaurant but they do each so well, that I have found it hard to eat sushi anywhere else. The garden is beautiful and romantic place to share dinner with that special someone or just with friends. The sushi itself comes in eight large pieces and is inexpensive but most importantly is good. If you don't take my word for it, just try it I promise you won't be dissapointed.

I hope this review was helpful in making the choice of where to eat in a often restaurant overcrowded city.

We went to NYC last March to visit my brother at school and he said that this was the best sushi in town. When we got there were were seated promptly and were served rather quickly. The only problem my party found was that when people asked for knives and forks (there were only chopsticks on the table) the waitress laughed at them. Overall a great place to eat.

I have been to many sushi restaurants in NYC, i think Osaka is one of the best in food and value. I went with 3 other friends on a Friday night, it was packed with people. We only waited for few minutes for our table because we have made a reservation. We ordered beef tataki and was delicious! We also ordered sashimi and they are fresh and big in portion. You must try the blue fin toro, the best i ever had! I give them an overall 9.5!

I have been for sushi in 100s or places around the US and internationally. I realize that there may be more high end places out there. But they know there fish here. Nobu is fantastic and innovative, but these guys are an everyday kind of thing.

Yes, the slices are huge, but they're also the best quality in town. Their kobe is unbelievable, their monk fish liver was an eye opener.

The one thing I recommend is to get either the Sushi or Sashimi Chef Special and tell them to make it exotic.

I love the back in the summer. Although they did mess it up with that rust this year.

Dining with 6 or so in the two window seats up front is even a bit more fun.

Who needs Manhattan? Ever since Osaka came on the scene, all we have to do is walk 5 minutes for the best sushi around. The portions are HUGE and the price is lower than anything you get in Manhattan for half the fish. Everything is fresh as can be and the menu is pretty extensive. They even have a quaint garden in the back. We've been spoiled. After Osaka any other sushi just isn't the same.
