Very Covid safe, extremely attentive service, great sushi
Menu was overly long for the screen on the phone. Ordering was a challenge. Sushi was excellent. Tables were close and loud. Expensive for the experience.
We had a fantastic dinner party of 6! From start to finish our experience was unbelievable. Outstanding, caring and intuitive staff. Meals were superb. The ambiance is amazing! We loved how responsive and friendly everyone was. Each meal was presented beautifully and was delicious.
Overall experienced authentic Japanese ambiance and food. Food was delicious.
The service was slow though.
Fantastic sushi! Great ambience and service. Highly recommend.
Love the private rooms. Great drink selection. Large portions.
Excellent service, great recommendations, everything was fresh and nicely presented.
Brought my partner and their friends here for their birthday, and we had a fantastic time with great food! Fully recommend. The dessert they brought us for the birthday was incredibly plated. Oh! And the sashimi sampler is 100% worth it, if only for the incredible presentation.
Great menu and food is delicious.
We were elated to find so many vegetarian options which were all delicious. Ambience and coziness made for a great birthday dinner, would definitely love to go back again
I've been going here for years and they have the best sushi ever!!
Excellent food and service. Nice ambiance too. We really enjoyed eating there and will definitely come back!
Best sushi place in the Boston area.
Farewell and new beginning selebration
Servers and ambiance were nice enough, but the food was at best, mediocre.
Great food, great drinks, perfect service and really awesome atmosphere. Will highly recommend to friends and family.
Best sushi in Boston, in a pleasant, quiet, atmosphere. Check out their website for more info-- We've loved having Fugaku in our neighborhood!
I brought my daughter to FaGaKyu to celebrate her 19th birthday and we all absolutely enjoyed it. We felt that the atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect for a celebration. I'll be bringing my family back next time we're feeling festive.
Great food! Really enjoyed the ambiance of the little dining room we were placed in. The Crazy Maki roll was delicious. So glad this place is just down the street.
First time at a Japanese restaurant. Layout is great, with some individual booths with sliding doors to provide intimate setting. Menu is 20 pages long, and probably simple if you know what you want, but was a bit baffling to a first-timer. The staff helped with some pointers, but more 'set menu' suggestions would also be welcome. Food was fine. Service was good, but could have been slightly more attentive to topping up water etc., however that is the problem with being in a private booth, I guess. Prices were quite reasonable. By no means cheap, but go to Market Basket if you want to fill up on sushi for a bargain.
Overall, underwhelming from the outside, but inside quite a nice ambience with special touches and good food. Reasonable price - when is Japanese food ever a bargain?
Wonderful restaurant - highly recommended.
Just wished I lived in the same city as would become my go to Japanese restaurant.
It seemed like a good idea when we booked this place, and even once there, things looked promising.
We ordered two apps and they came in 5 to 10 minutes between one and the other.
First we got the shrimp bacon, this was two pieces of shrimp in a fatty bacon it couldn’t be chewed. I think it was $13 for that.
The second app was the Lobster Tempura, a complete bust, $22 for a 4 piece deep fried roll with not even an oz of lobster.
We left after this.
We understand ambience, cuisine, and the whole experience plays a roll in pricing and we were looking for a high level experience but this place is way overpriced for the overall experience.
Birthday evening with family
Service was spot on!
We always enjoy our food at FuGaKyu. We have been patronizing this restaurant for many years. I feel they are taking Covid very seriously with temperature checks, wipe down of tables and booths, and all staff being masked. During this visit, service was a little slow; but we totally understand this during this time and the restaurant was a little more busy for a weekday than we expected. The presentation of the food is always beautiful and the menu is quite extensive with many unusual selections. The only disappointment was on our tempura appetizer. The serving size was sparse-but we all enjoyed it. Please give this restaurant a try. You'll want to come back if you do; as we have for over two decades.
Excellent food…terrible service-
Very, very fine sushi and service. Lovely, private dining areas for each party.
It’s very cool in there. I think with everything going on in the world, restaurants are short staffed, so maybe that’s why everything seemed rushy and our waitress seemed annoyed.
Excellent quality food, great ambience and service. The restaurant is often busy so I would suggest booking in advance.
The restaurant was nice and the way the staff and set up during COVID is handled really well. The food was just okay - the appetizer sushi was good but the entrees we ordered were not that good.
I have enjoyed dining at Fugakyu for years and it never disappoints. Pleasant staff with fast service and incredible food! Always a treat!
I have tried tons of Japanese restaurants in the Boston area and Fugakyu is my favorite by far. Fish is always fresh. They have interesting and unusual items on the menu. Service is fast and prices are good
Absolutley AMAZING experience, it was my friends birthday and they brought out a deciduous fried icecream! Will definitely be back soon!!!! THANK YOU!!!
Beautiful atmosphere- super friendly/great waiter- warm/kind greeting- great food!! Can’t wait to go back!
My favorite sushi place in Brookline! The food is incredible and they use such great quality ingredients. Our waitress was so wonderful, I wish I got her name! They gave us a delicious tiramisu since it was my friend's birthdays. The ambience is amazing too. The decorations are so cool inside, the seating is so unique, and the plating of the food is incredible. It really adds to the experience!
Food was amazing and service was great.
Wonderful atmosphere. Our server was wonderful - busy night but he kept checking in with us. The food was great.
Fabulous dinner, as usual!
