Basho Japanese Brasserie
Basho is a contemporary Izakaya brasserie where dishes are prepared in two separate areas: the principal kitchen and the sushi bar. Rather than offering individual starters and main courses, Basho serves dishes that are designed for sharing and are brought to the table steadily and continuously throughout the meal.
Your server will be happy to assist you in choosing dishes, such as our Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice Appetizer, which is highly popular or our specially crafted 1338 Signature Roll. We are also conveniently located within the heart of Fenway. If you're ever in the area for a Red Sox's game, stop by! We are only a 2 minute walk from Fenway Park!
Birthday lunch for our son.
There were several live mice eating crumbs off the carpet in front of us. We said something and one person out of everyone working did something. We had basically finished our meal by then, totally grossed out, but the restaurant didn’t offer any compensation or monetary gesture to make up for the incident. Overall it was both alarming that there were mice running around and then doubly alarming that no one captured them or felt our party should be paid back in some way for a terrible dining experience. Won’t be coming back here and actually considering calling the city of Boston because no one should eat here.
Good food, very fresh. Service was quick and on point.
Can't say enough good things about Basho: the food and service is always fantastic. It's a great alternative to going to the sports bars before or after a game at Fenway if you're in the mood for something different.
Good , drinks, ambiance always great. My who is the manager is always a pleasure to speak with.
We had a great dinner here before heading over to Fenway for a concert. The food was fresh and delicious. Highly recommended.
Long. Waits for food drinks, no service
Had a great lunch before Red Sox game. Great customer service. Amazing food. Great value. I had Basho Bowl. Kids had Bento Lunch. Both were amazing! I came here with my 10 and 11 years old and we all absolutely loved their lunch. I would come here again!
Great food and service - we sat outside and had a perfect evening!
Unfortunately Basho used to be a really excellent restaurant with great food and service but that was not my experience this time. The menu is much curtailed which was disappointing, but the food was more or less still good. The service though was the most disappointing part. We waited far too long for our server to come to the table, take our order, check on us, ask us if we wanted another round of drinks etc. We even had to wait 10min for the host to seat us at a table for two when we had a reservation. I think we all have to be understanding right now given covid and staffing shortages, but other tables seemed to be served much faster and more consistently than us.
Best food ever
Loved it. Great fish dishes!
Loved my dinner at Basho. Waiters/waitresses made it an enjoyable experience and food was absolutely incredible. Highly reccomend the crispy rice with spicy tuna. The volcano roll that was in the basho boat was delicious as well.
We had a very nice early dinner at Basho, the Caterpillar Roll was melt in your mouth, the Hamachi, Salmon, and Unagi sushi were very delicious. We both had well put together cocktails with our edamame and very tasty pork gyoza.
Service was excellent, we ordered in 3 tranches, but all food arrived quickly and was properly presented.
Great food and drinks. Were able to accommodate a last minute reservation
The carpet is torn and looks terrible, needs to be replaced. The parking validation is awesome however, especially when there's a Red Sox game.
Food was good, prices are reasonable.
Excellent meal. Great service.
The food and drinks are amazing and the service was great and quick!
Horrible dining experience. Very slow service and unfriendly staff. Appetizer came before my drink. Would not recommend
They appear to be recovering from Covid restrictions. Good sushi but everything seem geared to Take out
Made a reservation for 8:30 and the waiter said we had 10 min to order as the kitchen was going to close… rushed us to order
Excellent safety protocols. Friendly service and the outdoor dining was fantastic!
Great food and even better service! Always a favorite go to!
We eat here a lot and it is always great both food wise and service wise.
Beer was hot and flat. But the service and food was good.
Really great service and we loved out meals and drinks. The 1338 roll was worth the hype. Highly recommend Basho.
The volcano roll is a must try
Server was good, but he was the only one so it took a while for us to get our drinks though food was served
The food was good the drinks were great the service was a little slow but they were also packed
There were 5 of us for lunch on Saturday. The staff was friendly and efficient. The windows were open so the ventilation was great but it was a little chilly so bring extra layers. The food was amazing as usual. From the pork belly steamed buns, to the sushi and sashimi and the bento boxes....the food was all excellent. We love Basho!
Very good service and food. Met a friend for lunch. He was late, and server was very pleasant, did not rush me. Delicious sushi.
Another great night at Basho! Amazing food, great space, great food, and service is absolutely phenomenal.
First date night of the pandemic post vaccination and as always, Basho never disappoints. I’ve lived in Brookline for 12 years and since they opened, it’s one of my go to sushi staples. Always amazing food with speedy and attentive service!
Great fun spot with excellent sushi, creative rolls, and other menu items...good drinks too!. Staff were upbeat and very accommodating. Near Fenway so also good spot pre or post Red Sox game. Will be going back.
The food was amazing and the staff was so nice! loved it! thank you
The speciality sushi rolls are TO DIE FOR! My sister and I LOVED the crunchy roll, the 1338 roll and the Phoenix roll. Absolutely delicious!
Great experience overall!
Very attentive service times just right. Food is always mad good. Can’t go wrong with their cocktails, very balanced 👌
Fresh sushi with very good rolls and menu options at a reasonable price.
Great service and food! Will be back.
