Diner Reviews
  • "The spicy titanic roll was fantastic! I was also a huge fan of the special lychee drink (not the lycheetini) and would definitely get that again!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The front desk hostess service and manager is quite horrible during reservation and check in. The food takes a long time to come out and it is not very tasty. I do not recommend this restaurant at all."

  • "Cocktails and Happy Hour menu during the week, a nice surprise. We've been several times. The food and service are always excellent. The restaurant is beautiful also."

  • "At first service was attentive but when the room started filling up with just a few diners our server was unable to tend to us. We ordered the sushi and that came out fairly quickly and we had already finished our drinks when the food came. We asked for another round. Our server never came back! We had finished our sushi and still she had walked by us as if she didn't know us. We finally flagged her down and we asked for the check. She came back with our drinks. We figured since they were already made we might as well drink them. My second 13 dollar drink had been made without garnish( like the previous one had, it was a sangria) and no alcohol. Liked the food but the service was pretty bad. Don't think I'll be trying this place again"

  • "I go to Haru a few times a year, and it is always a great time. Delicious sushi. Definitely take advantage of the happy hour menu, since there some cheaper appetizers listed."

  • "Lots of options for vegetarians and waitress was very knowledgeable."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We went on a Saturday evening and the place was almost empty. The quality of the fish was not as good as I was hoping and definitely not worth the price. The server didn't seem to know the menu well and was not very attentive. After our last dish was served he didn't come back to check on us and we had to flag him down for the check."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Restaurant not busy for a dinner with reservation for out of town friends on Sunday night. Seated in the bar, not the restaurant, in an area with no server. Bartender, who did not know the menu, was semi-server. Appetizers and main arrived together. No checking if we needed anything. Staff standing around and chatting. Very poor showing. Not worth the aggravation or cost. If there was manager there it is obvious that no managing was going on. Go to Douzo or Snappy's. Better food and a more enjoyable dining experience."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Extremely slow service even though restaurant was empty. Everything we ordered took a really long time to come out and was overlooked. Price point is too high to have slow service and overlooked food. Had the food not been overlooked it would have been delicious. Waitress was nice and friendly but we were there for 3 hours. "

  • "Came here for lunch late in the week on a dreary rainy day..hostess and waitstaff were welcoming... salmon teriyaki with miso soup, sushi, shrimp tempura & vegetables did not disappoint. Portions were generous."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Service was slow, no one came to refill our water and drinks. Not a good experience. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "A friend picked out this spot. He wanted to try sushi for the first time. He left liking it and wants to try sushi again. It was a solid experience - food was good, service was good, prices were good. A great location, right under the Prudential Center shops. However, it was mostly unmemorable experience (nothing particularly good or bad sticks out), so I have a tough time giving it more than three stars. Would I return? Perhaps if I was already in the area shopping at the Prudential Center and had a friend who wanted decent sushi at a decent price."

  • "Spring roll was dripping with oil..meat tasted old, meaning it was probably a frozen filet quickly thawed. My wife had chicken which was dry. Probably had also been frozen, maybe for a while. Neither of us could finish it. Also had a loud customer behind us talking."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "As always I had an excellent meal at Haru Sushi. Everything we ordered was delectable. I will always return to this favourite restaurant."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Is the third time I go to that restaurant and the three times employees where crude and they ask you for tip as if they deserve it. TERRIBLE SERVICE! "

  • "The food was very good and service was outstanding. On the expensive side. Reserve for very special occasions."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Haru's ambience made it the most enjoyable. The menu is full of tasty options and it is certainly hard to pick, however, the couple plates I did order did not live up to expectations. The main issue was the sauces and dips that did not pair well with any of my dishes. Also, the food took a WHILE to come out and I mean a while. The kitchen was backed up. This would have been fine but our waitress did not communicate that to us or offer us something while we were waiting. A 40 minute wait for two appetizers deserves some recognition. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "I usually go by myself and its a nice place for a quiet meal of Japanese type - enjoyable."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "I discovered Haru about 6 years ago. It has been my favorite restaurant ever since. The service has always been excellent. The sushi is some of the best I've ever had. The king crab dumplings melt in your mouth. My only regret is that I live 2 hours away and I don't get to go there nearly as often as I would like."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Sushi rolls were amazing. Steamed dumplings less than mediocre. Will go back to try other rolls."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Everything was terrific--food, service, ambiance, proximity to Symphony--a lovely dinner!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I have had lunch here three times in the last two months, each time with a friend. The raw fish dishes are inventive, scrumptuous, and plentiful. The Salmon Don has six large pieces of raw salmon served on top of rice and shredded daikon. The fish was very fresh and, considering the price of sushi and sashimi, the value ($22) is excellent. My friend loved the teriyaki and, another time, a shrimp dish with noodles. The music can be a little loud, so too the fan for the heating system. However, on all three occasions when I requested that the (rock) music and heating fan be turned down, my request was honored without further ado. Had this courtesy not been shown, I would have been much less inclined to return a second and third time."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "We didn't think that the food was too great. Also, I found an eyelash on my food. The waitress took it back and discounted our bill, but I would not go back to Haru. Unfortunately, I would not recommend to friends or family. There are a lot of options for sushi around Boston that are much better."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "My husband and I visit Haru once a year when we make our annual visit to Anime Boston because it is a consistently enjoyable experience. The food is exceptionally fresh and flavorful. We tried the seasonal "Summer Spring Rolls" as an appetizer this time and we were not disappointed: an amazing blend of fresh, crisp ingredients. Definitely a must try! And you can't ask for fresher sushi and sashimi. Truly melt-in-your-mouth quality fish! If you're looking for outstanding food in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere, give Haru a try."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Haru is overall a really solid sushi restaurant in Boston's energetic Back Bay area. The sushi is definitely some of the best in Greater Boston, with some excellent and creative custom rolls. Although there appear to be other places that slightly outdo them in terms of quality, the ambience is hard to beat though and that's why I can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I was pleasantly surprised by the delightful find that is Haru Sushi in Boston. After a long day of work, we needed somewhere that was going to accommodate us well, and every single thing we tried on the menu was impeccable. We tried: * Chicken Yakitori Skewers * Agadashi Tofu * Spicy Filet Mignon Starter * Boston UnCommon Roll * Rainbow Roll * Chicken Udon There was nothing on the menu that wasn't spectacular--however, the Chicken Udon wasn't on the menu. My wife requested it, and was told that they could make it, "But it will be three dollars more." We never found out "more than what?" If time hadn't been a factor, we would have eaten here all four nights of our stay. As it is, we're bringing friends back tonight!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I know its Restaurant Week, but still, I was very disappointed in my last visit to Haru. We arrived a few minutes early for a 1:15 p.m. lunch reservation, and were promptly seated. However, it took forever to get served -- even water. My friend and I both ordered miso soup -- and it took at least one-half to be served the soup! Its only soup, folks -- it really isn't cooked to order. We were on our lunch break, and when our entrees were served, we asked for the check then, and still, it took some time to get the check paid and to send us on our way. Service has never been Haru's strong suit, but this time, it was atrocious. Usually, the food is wonderful, but the chicken in my chicken teriyaki lunch box was totally tasteless. Sad,"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Food was ok. I liked the restaurant week menu. Waitress was overwhelmed it seemed and service could have been better. We had to wait a while before she took our order. Overall, ok...I've had better Sushi and Haru will not be on my revisit list."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Great service and delicious food. the sushi was incredibly fresh. They were able to handle my food allergy no problem. GF soy sauce is available"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "The food was good. We went for restaurant week/dine out Boston so we had the popcorn shrimp (which was basically the size of an entree), sushi special (my friend said the samurai one was also good and I tried the teriyaki salmon and it was yummy) and then green tea mochi ice cream. The waitress was nice but not very attentive to water glasses. I think the tuna could have been a little bit fresher but the salmon and yellowtail sashimi were delicious."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "The food was excellent, but the service did not live up to it. It was slow and disinterested from the moment we walked in before 6 pm. The greeter was on the phone but never gave us a glance. Another woman came over but got on the computer and never looked up. Finally my husband went over to a table and then someone came and led us to that very table. It was 5 mins before anyone appeared with water and another 5 mins before drinks were ordered. The drinks were slow coming, the ordering was slow, one appetizer was late, and the service was inattentive throughout. The waitress was pleasant but was not trained for the task. So on a not so busy night, and early, we were always looking around for service, for another glass of wine or whatever."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Good sushi here, though it is not very traditional at all. new age versions so to speak. still rather good and not terribly pricey."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Wow, the sushi is terrific, but only worth it if you have a couple hours to spend waiting on the terrible service. I have never waited over an hour to get four rolls. Plus it initially took the server 45 minutes just to take our order. Once the food was there, it was awesome. I'd definitely do take out, but probably wouldn't go back. The hostess was incredibly nice, though, and it's a really convenient spot."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Overall great experience, the place was empty so for the most part it was pretty intimate. Our server was great, though I don't remember her name, but she was prompt with just about everything."

  • "Too many crying children and the bathroom was not working."

  • "Had a fantastic dinner at Haru Sushi. We asked our server Erica to make suggestions, and she definitely did not falter us. Her selections were excellent, making for a gluttonous, satisfying dinner."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Excellent food, service and atmosphere in a great looking space: We will definitely return. If you are looking for a great sushi restaurant, this is it. No need to make a reservation weeks in advance nor deal with pretense as you may at other well known sushi venues around town. Just enjoy Haru!"

  • "Been here a few times. This time's service was better than the last couple of times. Server was more attentive and checked on food and refilled drinks better. Food is just kind of ok. Nothing special and super exciting. Price is a bit on the pricy side considering the portion size. Very disappointed that the Fish Taco is now only 2 pieces instead of 3."

  • "Haru used to be a favorite of mine until now. I took myself there for lunch on my birthday. I love their escolar dishes. I was excited to see the old favorites listed. When I went to place my order, I was informed that they no longer carry escolar. In fact, I wasn't told this until I ordered sashimi. Why was half of the menu filled with escolar? They replace it with white tuna. NOT THE SAME. Definitely disappointing. The food I did order was less than mediocre and overpriced. Next time I'll go to Douzo or Oishii."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We were seated and they told us it would be at least 30 mins for anything from the sushi bar and we were told we could order anything else.....so 1/4 of the menu. We said it was ok and put in a sushi order. Our waitress then came back and told us it would be 1 hour for food from the sushi bar. UNACCEPTABLE. We left."
