First time at Douzo and I have nothing but good things to say. Both the service and the food were exceptional! Our waitress was attentive but not overbearing and did offer recommendations at our request. The tuna tataki was amazing! The sushi was so fresh. Overall, we spent a bit of money on this dinner - 4 drinks, 2 appetizers & 4 sushi rolls totaling $125 - but it was well worth it.

Our waiter, Luke, was fantastic.
Our waiter, Luke, was fantastic. He was personable, knowledgeable and just enjoyable to have as part of our experience. The food is always very good although the beef wrapped asparagus we felt was over cooked and not that tasty. Other than that the food was delicious!

Douzo has always been one
Douzo has always been one of my favorite sushi places in the city. It's great for girls' night or date night. I haven't been in a couple years and I was pleased to find they still had a few of my favorites on the menu, including the Snow Mountain Roll and Naruto appetizer. We also ordered one of the special rolls, which had jalepeno and salmon and it was okay. The salmon tartar was also okay, but kind of plain and I think they're old dish was better. It's always busy and energetic, drinks are good - especially the Saketini. We caught a good buzz and had a good dinner overall. The service was a little slow, but I could tell our waiter was covering a lot of tables. Overall it was great as usual.

Snob Hostess, good food regardless
A few friends and I were looking for a good place to eat while out in Boston and found this place quite accidentally. We made a reservation for 8, but when we showed up much earlier (there was only an 8pm available) they took us right away. We were perhaps slightly underdressed and I presume that's what caused the hostess to sneer at us and treat us like trash but the rest of the wait staff was kind. The food, for the most part, was delicious. My one sushi roll was rather bland and mild, but the salad and other food we ordered was fantastic. If I were to go back her, I suppose I wouldn't wear my running shoes and a hoodie. But how was I to know it was a nice dress place to eat?

Great Food at a Great Price
The food was great, especially for the price. I believe the manager was at the host station and was wonderful, Server was good, but not incredibly attentive as the restaurant is very busy and they turn tables as quickly, and that was on a weekday. My mistake was coming here looking for a romantic dinner. It's hip and trendy, which translates to crowded and boisterous. It would have been fine if that's what we had been expecting. I ended up feeling a bit rushed and claustrophobic. I was closer to the people at the tables next to me than the one at my own table and they were so busy. Definitely great for a small group or when you are gearing up for an exciting night out. We will be back for a good, fun meal.

Great food--service a little slow
The food was great--everything very fresh tasting--and the service was prompt and helpful, until the end when it took just too much time to get the bill and pay it.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
filling and tasty
The service was outstanding and always there to make sure you had a full cup and if you wanted to order more food. The sushi was delicious and wanted to order more of it but was so full. It was very fresh and delicious. The crunchy shrimp appetizer was absolutely divine and could've eaten 3 orders. The tempura vegetables were crunchy and tasty with the dipping sauce.

Booking the reservation with open table was very convenient. The food, service and atmosphere was great.

EXCELLENT QUALITY japanese
OUTSTANDING QUALITY JAPANESE FOOD, WELL PRESENTED AND THE MOST UNUSUAL INGREDIENTS: SEA URCHIN, KOBE BEEF, AND THE FRESHEST SASHIMI FISH. Nice MODERN JAPANESE decor and a relaxed and quiet atmosphere, with the best sakes served in unusual glass bottles. A real treat night, a bit pricey though, if you are a daring diner and go for the exotic menu. A night to remember. one hundred and seventy without tip for a diner for three. well worth it....

Love this place
We go here often, mostly spot on for food. Fresh and delicious.

Great Sushi in Back Bay!
Went here on a Friday night. Friendly & attentive staff. Had a nice relaxing ambiance. Boyfriend and I had some apps & sushi/sashimi entrees. The menu has some traditional & unique items. Everything was fresh and served in a timely manner. We had the sea urchin which, i personal thought, tasted strange and was fun to try. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Couldn't get enough
Great place for a quick lunch, though the atmosphere and food kept us there longer than planned. The service was great. There when we needed help, but not rushing us through our meal. The sushi was fresh and delicious! The scallop starter was out of this world, though probably not the healthiest thing. More on the indulgent side for sure.
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very enjoyable lunch during the week. More vegetarian/vegan options will be nice.

we booked a table a while
we booked a table a while ago and glad we did - it would have been difficult to get in that day. we got there around 7pm on a thurs and the place was packed, great energy, great crowd - definitely a hot spot. our 2yr old was sleeping in his stroller and they were very nice about that and helped us tuck him into the corner near our table and we enjoyed our meal. great fish, very fresh and creative. but pricey for sure. we had 2 drinks each and sushi (but we weren't stuffed) and the bill incl tip was $200. maybe that's what makes the dinner special?? ;-) we also went to haru which had comparable quality sushi, but at 8pm on a sat night was pretty slow and quiet. if we lived in boson, we'd def go to douzo again just dont be too hungry.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
outstanding in every way
We loved everything about Douzo. The way the menu is structured allowed us to order several different things, each of which was delicious and most of them suggested by our fantastic waitress, who managed to be both friendly and professional at the same time. Her recommendations were spot on. Other wait staff were equally good, keeping our water glasses filled etc quietly and efficiently. It was a memorable meal in every way.

We were there for my husband's
We were there for my husband's birthday. Wonderful waitress! Delicious food! Wonderful ambiance! Everything was perfect, and it is so easy to get to, although I recommend that they tell patrons where to get parking that will be validated when folks call for reservations. We parked in the wrong garage.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Douzo never disappoints - my whole family loves it & the sushi is the best
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great find - innovative - delicious - our server was great - the service was very good- the choices were great and the food was delicious - great wine list - really fun experience - the ambiance could use some work but we had a nice table by the window - my preference - staff was very good - would definitely recommend to friends.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Japanesse food
I do not eat sushi and was taking two college students, one that lived in Japan fior several years, they both loved everything they ordered. In particular the fried banana dessert stood out. I had the ribs that were highly recommended and they were good but not outstanding and would not order them again. The tempura squash was excellent but I felt the tempura shrimp had too much breading. the atmosphere was great and I would recommend going in an off hour.....we went at 3:45 on a Sunday.

Superb food, annoying busboy
A friend and I had a delicous teryaki salmon and the special sushi chef's lunch. Everything was flesh and full of different tastes. I completed my meal before my friend and the busboy cleared it as I put my fork down. He then tried to clear my friend's plate twice before she was done with her meal. We ordered a soothing ginger ice cream for dessert, and he and our server tried to clear it 6 times, even after my friend asked them to wait until we asked for it to be cleared. I felt like we were in an SNL skit. Our server had been very helpful initially when we were ordering, but we definitely felt as though they were not respectful of our time there. It's not as if there weren't any empty tables if they had needed to seat new diners.

Great food and impeccable service
As always! One of my to-go places in the Back Bay Area. Sweet potato tempura roll is heavenly good! All the raw fish is ever-fresh and cocktails are worth the price.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
. Food was good, though overpriced. Cool, modern, young atmosphere/vibe. Great for late night high-end dinner and drinks.
The place could have been very romantic if the tables were'nt so ridiculously close to each other.

Great food, Great service
We dined here on a Saturday evening after making reservations a few days before. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated right away by a very nice and efficient hostess. Our server greeted us right away, was very attentive but not overbearing, and let us take our time with the menu and with the bill at the end. The food here is always excellent, although it is a bit overpriced. That doesn't stop me from coming back again and again though! This was the best service I have experienced at Douzo, which to me, is almost as important as the quality of the food. Highly recommend!

Great food. Drinks were not
Great food. Drinks were not as good as prior visits. Food consistently very good.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Douzo has been touted as among the top sushi restaurants in Boston, and I would endorse that. We got and split both the sushi and sashimi combo dinners, as well as an order of toro sashimi. The fish was of very high quality, in generous portions and very attractively presented. The service was appropriately attentive. I had the sake flight, which was very good, per the recommendation of our server. My only complaint/concern was that some of the seating is awkwardly situated, around high traffic to and from the kitchen, and that is not comfortable and somewhat distracting. I will be back to try the omakase, when I am feeling flush and in need of a place to celebrate!
8/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Another great experience at Douzo
We come here all of the time, usually for lunch, and it never disappoints. Fresh food, reasonable prices, and attentive and knowledgable service. Thanks for another great meal.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything but the service
I always find that Douzo is hit or miss with the service. The food is great - always on point, but the wait staff could use a little help. They always seem frantic, like fresh hires that haven't fully been trained, and service is always S-L-O-W. Not sure why it takes so long to greet a table or put food orders in, but well worth it in the end when that delicious sushi comes out.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ordered tempura and a bunch of different rolls. Everything tasted good. It is on the expensive side and was extremely noisy at lunch.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, wonderful service in Back Bay - what more could you want? We were here for lunch, but I'll be giving Douzo a try for dinner as well.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Douzo is by far one of our favs to eat at! The sushi is always fresh. The service is always with you. The faces are always smiling when waling in. And I love it when Laura's working because she does all my ordering for us!!!!!! Just can't get enough of Douzo......

First Dinner in Boston
This was our very first meal after arriving in Boston. We made reservations well in advance since it seemed like it would be a longer wait. Luckily, we were able to be seated earlier than our 8pm reservations. We heard the others that were waiting had about an hour wait so do make a reservation.
The restaurant was not that big, but fit enough people comfortably. Our waitress was a little awkward when taking our orders, but at least she got them right. The portions were not that big either (or maybe we were just hungry from traveling) so we did have to order more than expected. The seaweed salad was amazing! So was the Red Spider. All of the food was fresh and tasty. The restaurant was a bit dim; we could have used a little more lighting.

Food was good, and service was great. Will definitely be back.

We were a little late for our reservation so we waited at the bar for a drink. I ordered a drink that I thought I would enjoy. It was way too spicy and even though I am hesitant to send drinks back, the friend I was with made this known to the bartender. She was great and said that no one shod drink a cocktail they don't like. She immediately had a drink list in front of me.
For dinner our waitress offered up a great suggestion that was no longer on the menu (20-12 delicious). We order a few other rod am there was one we did not care for. Again the waitress removed it and had a new menu in front of us promptly. Great experience.

The Sushi is always great and I love the staff.. Laura is my favorite bartender and orders for me 8-)))))! XO

Solid sushi for Boston
Great service by Jacqueline. A bit on the pricey side but probably bc of the drinks. I think total bill for 2 ran around 320. Should have gotten a comp for valet or something.
