Great food and friendly and attentive staff! I would highly recommend.
Creative plating, extensive menu marred by somewhat soft technical execution. Sourcing was rather mediocre, the sushi rice was a bit “soggy”- we did love the shitaki roll and the scallop roll was perfectly crispy. It seemed a bit more grounded in hype than serious food.
Food, service, ambiance, and general experience were all great! If you don't mind the high price, then you definitely need to try Oishii.
It was amazing but very very expensive
Love it. Oishii, uni, pabu, are my favorite sushi places in Boston.
Great service and good food! Highly recommended.
The food is heavenly. The service was great. I only have 1 suggestion. The lighting was a bit too dim for me to read the menu.
Great service and food!!!
chef is amazing. best sushi in Boston.
As always, the food is amazing. Something for everyone, of all palates. The service is quick and easy.
Truly one of the most delicious nights I have had out in Boston in recent memory.
All dish were prepared with lovely presentation and were very delicious. Table are a bit tight, as you are much closer to the person sitting on the other table to your side then you are to the person you’re with across your table from you.
Best sushi anywhere. The fish is amazing and pairing exquisite
Omakase was superb and a great way to celebrate 🍾 in Boston
Second time dining at Oishii, but it’ll be my last. Had reservations for 3 weeks and they stuck my table in the basement in a back corner. Waitress was incredibly rude, and absent for most of the meal.
No one came by to ask how the food was, drinks went long periods empty, simple requests like keeping a drink menu at the table seemed to be a grave inconvenience to her.
Pork buns were good though, but my “The Maki” roll was mushy. The rolls ordered by the rest of my table were good. I still won’t be back, the service was really and truly poor.
We had a lot of fun, the hostess need to be more flexible with the clients....
We where 6 for the party and one more joined us, she said that was impossible and we almost went away but we convinced her and we had one of the most wonderful experience in Boston
Food service was v slow
And wait staff didn’t seem to care
had only been to the Oishii in Chestnut Hill (now closed), but remember their food being much better than this. Rock shrimp tempura were tasteless, and the wasabi/soy did little to help. The vegetable dumpling reminded me of a subtler version of samosa, and was nice. The miso soup was a small portion, not sufficiently warm, and the flavor just ok. The king crab maki had the crab on the outside, unincorporated, making the dip into the soy problematic. The taste was underwhelming.
Had dinner here for my birthday and it was a great experience. The good was so good and different than most places and the wait staff were so personable and knowledgeable that made us feel very comfortable. I had an amazing time.
Best sushi in Boston!!
Best sushi ever and desserts are spectacular!
Great food, the best Japanese cuisine in Boston area. A little pricy but worth it especially for a special occasion. Food choices are amazing. Cleanliness is very noticeable, service staff are trying but you can tell that they are reactive instead of anticipating the guests needs( difference between amateurs and professional waitstaff). I will always go there for a splurge or when I am in the mood for some sushi, there are a lot of items on the menu that I am looking forward to try on my next visit.
9 courses took us 3 hours to finish, I know this is a high end restaurant and those delicate dishes needs time to prepare, but I was sitting in front of the bar and I saw those chefs are talking, playing, and working very inefficiently. Me and my partner sat in a tiny and uncomfortable chair for 3 hour watching how slow our dishes are being made basically ruined the date.
However, besides that I must say most of the dishes are great. There dishes are art works and really innovative, but I call them one-time dish. You came there to try them and enjoy all the creativity inside those, but their favor is just not that great for you to reorder them and pay the high price again in the next visit. Not saying they are bad, don’t get me wrong.
Whenever we come to Boston THIS IS WHERE WE EAT!!!! Delicious
Very creative and our server was a great help in guiding us through the various selections.
Oishii has been a favorite since finding this gem in Sudbury. The 9-course Omakase was balanced and unique (in a good way).
them pork buns were DOPE. the best I’ve ever had by far.
Been here many times, love the lunch special for Keiseki sets. All of them are yummy. Good job, come again. Wish these lunch will extend more days and on weekend.
9 course tasting with wine and sake pairing was awesome!
Every time we're in Boston, we try to have dinner at Oishi. One of the best Japanese restaurants we have ever had the pleasure of dining in. And having eaten Japanese food in NYC for several decades, where there is a lot of excellent Japanese food, that says a lot for Oishi.
BRAVO!!!! Well done and extremely excellent food, options for unique fine dining, amazing flavor and pride in service delivery. I was loosing hope during my trip to Boston for a Med conf until I came to Oishii! As a world traveler this is on the top of my A+++ list. I can’t wait to visit again when I’m in Boston.
Incredible food, elegant environment. The wagu is a must.
Everything dish is tasty just the price is bit high tho lol
Excellent food! Been there about 5 times and have never had a bad experience. Highly recommend.
Thanksgiving dinner and parents anniversary
I wanted to try the restaurant for a while as I am a food lover and heard good things. I tried O ya a few months before, as THAT is the best sushi restaurant in Boston for sure.
First of all, we were seated in front of the kitchen, which is a good thing in sushi restaurants, but there was SO much smoke that I was having a hard time breathing in the beginning, it didn't smell good either. They do a lot of searing and other pan fried dishes. Still not a good seating area. Also, our waiter was terrible, she did not bother to ask if it was our first time there or celebrating something "which we were" or if we knew how the menu works. She had the strongest accent ever and we couldn't understand anything she said to us. Finally we thought all of the dishes were going to be small and ordered a lot of dishes, but asked her if that was too much food because we were concern it was, and she said not at all. It was three appetizers, two maki rolls, a steak entree and a fried rice entree. We obviously thought they were very small dishes from looking at other tables. Nope, they were all huge and we ended up with a crazy amount of food that we had to take home. I complained to the manager and she just took the fried rice, the least expensive item out of the bill just so we didn't bother her. Wasn't apologetic at all.
Don't spend your money in this place! instead go to O ya, it's amazing.
The food was great as usual. What we ordered: treasure spoon, toro truffle, food grab sushi, salmon on fire, uni pasta, uni sashimi, king crab dumplings,oishii maki and coconut ball ice cream thing-a-ma-jig. The highlights were toro truffle, salmon on fire, uni sashimi and treasure spoon. Add two drinks and some sake and you get a $300+ bill dinner for two. We came to celebrate my gf’s bday, as we’ve come here before, I knew what to expect. Overall it was a joyous occasion and we both enjoyed the food.
Great fpod but poor service
The food was ok- but "ok" doesn't warrant the prices being charged. It also took 30 minutes to be served any food, and our appetizer was served after our entree.
Went there for our anniversary. Good but not great meal. Step above most sushi restaurants but not a big enough step to warrant the hefty menu prices. It's a slick venue with a very New York feeling. But overall, if you're looking for swanky downtown sushi, we thought Uni was much better.
