“AMAZING HIDDEN GEM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

What a great hidden gem! When arriving the staff was extremely friendly and ambiance was simple. We were recommended by locals and you what they say ... when the locals love it and they've been around for over 17 years, they're doing something right. The house salad was great with the house made ginger dressing. I appreciate simplicity in a restaurant, because it keeps the focus on quality and consistency ... safe to say this place is the definition of simplicity. I've had sushi from several places around the world and this place has climbed it way to the top of my list. Thank you Osaka for a fantastic meal and I will see you soon!

“Fresh, quality sushi in a cozy space.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013 via mobile

Our group of four sat down after being warmly greeted by the whole staff. We started with salads and soup. Split 12 rolls and had a wonderful time. Everything was fresh and well made. Service was attentive. It was a busy night there. Tables were full and folks were seated at the counter too. Take out was also popular. We will be going back!

“Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is small but the atmosphere is great. We received a friendly greeting upon arrival. We selected seats at the bar near sushi chefs. Menus were presented and our drink orders taken quickly. Osaka has a nice selection of sakes and Japanese beer. We ordered negimaki and shumai, followed by an assortment of sushi rolls. The presentation is wonderful and all the dishes are fresh and delicious. We had an outstanding meal and warm, personable service. We LOVE Osaka!

“Outstanding find in beautiful small village-Rhinebeck, NY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2012

We cancelled our reservations in Manhattan at Sushi Yasuda to eat here again. That should tell you all you need to know about Osaka Sushi in Rhinebeck! But, let me tell you a little more. This is a Zagat rated jewel located in the beautiful Village of Rhinebeck. The owner, Jessica, is on site and personally engages everyone. The sushi chefs are professional and sushi itself was unique, fresh and beautiful. We ate the recommended specials and did not have one piece of fish that we did not feel was outstanding. This restaurant is worth making the train trip from NYC for!
