When diners enter this stylish restaurant in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay – steps away from the South End & Theater District – they are immediately enveloped in earth tones, rich dark wood and the airiness of high ceilings reverberating with the energy and excitement of the space. The lively bar area is a popular gathering spot offering a selection of cocktails, sake, wine and beer. Guests look on as the team of chefs create cutting-edge sushi dishes, or they settle into an experience of award-winning cuisine in the main dining area. From the knowledgeable and attentive waitstaff to charismatic owner Jack Huang’s pleasure at meeting diners, expect the comfort of being warmly welcomed at Douzo. Like the atmosphere, Douzo’s healthy and fresh cuisine seamlessly combines warm tradition and modern innovation of Japanese classics. Douzo offers inventive dishes that make the restaurant both a neighborhood fixture and a critically acclaimed destination, signature items.

Our evening at Douzo was perfect! Vi, our server, and the rest of the staff helped make our dinner wonderful! We were so happy to go back to the restaurant, where we had our first date. Douzo will continue to be on the top of Boston restaurant recommendations!

Truly outstanding! The four of us went there for lunch. The food was quite spectacular from their tuna tatataki, steamed pork and wagyu buns, mixed sushi, chirashi bento box, yakitore donburi, and miso ramen...all delicious! I would highly recommend this place!

The dinner and service was truly amazing. Esmeralda, our server, was tentative to not only our table but tables that were not even in her section. The steam buns were mouth watering. I enjoyed the Salmon Jalapeños roll and the husband loved the Douzo special roll. Save room for dessert! The banana brulee and the coppa mascarpone with espresso martinis ended our night. Rodrigo, dishwasher, was working double time to make sure the sushi bar had clean dishes. I feel guilty for I do not know the name of the food runner. What I do know it that Douzo has an outstanding team that work together and efficiently. Kudos to you!

The food was okay. It was a bit overpriced for what was served. Our server was nice but left us unattended for a while when we were trying to get our check. Came with high expectations but left thinking it was only meh!

Excellent sushi, great atmosphere, and didn’t take very long to get our food. Wish they would leave soy sauce on the table so you didn’t have to keep asking the server to pour more. Also didn’t refresh our drinks often, but it was very busy. Would recommend regardless. Great meal!

The sushi was wonderful. It's the best I've had in a long time, and I"ve been out and about during the pandemic. Good cocktails, great service and a modern, fun atmosphere. So close to Back Bay Commuter rail and Orange Line, Green Line too, so convenient for meeting up after work.
