    In a few words, it was a disappointment. $72 for two appetizers, one of raw scallops, sauce and vegetables taste good, but scallops were bland; the other was soft crab and they were over breaded and tasteless, more like a street fritter. Lot of outstanding soft crab to compare. First glass wine was yellow and not clear, this is a clear indication that wine is old, and the taste was not good. The other two were of a different brand and were fresh. Enter the place and will find very old awards, once inside the fritter smell is obvious. At times, I give negative reviews but mention that will try a send time. Not this one.

    Service was great. But was disappointed with the sushi rice, over cooked and not much taste.

    Oya, Uni and Zuma are our Boston favorites. This one might have them all best. This was our first time dining at Oishii. We don’t know how we hadn’t heard of it before. We were texting our foodie friends who also hadn’t been from the table and have planned a return. We had just gotten back from New York City dining at two Michelin sushi restaurants there and this one was head and shoulders above. The presentation and atmosphere by far exceeds any other fine Japanese restaurant. Can’t wait to return!

    We had an absolutely amazing sushi dinner here this past Friday night. The ambiance is wonderful. We came in at 8:45 pm and were led to a nice semi-private room downstairs next to a little reflection pool type structure. There were beautiful screens dividing tables from one another. I had several of the vegetarian sushi and maki options and my wife enjoyed the tartare tossed and some excellent fish based sushi. The drinks were also delicious! The sushi itself was like art! Gorgeous! And wonderful tastes combos! The only thing I wouldn’t recommend is the fresh wasabi, as it was a small portion for such a high price and wasn’t that remarkable. Otherwise, everything was spot on! Great service too!

    Service was great. Food was mediocre. The food was not as good as we remember it. The sushi was very rice-heavy — like grocery store sushi. I don’t know if it was an off night, but we were disappointed.

    Came here for mother’s day. The service was great but the food portions are small for what we paid for. I am used to paying NYC prices but the amount usually equates the price. The flavor is good overall but still expensive for what we got.

    We brought our friend who just got in from Spain to celebrate his birthday. He said the food and quality were spectacular and wished he could import Oishii back to Spain with him. He and we enjoyed every dish presented to us for the 9-course Omakase experience, including the presentation and deliciousness of the dessert celebrating his birthday 🎉 . The staff and service were exceptional. The wait staff, along with the chef, gave us an enjoyable evening to remember as one of the best of Boston's fine dining experiences. Thank you to the team at Oishii Boston!

    The omakase was over priced, too many “appetizers” style food, and main dish is too tiny. We understand it was fancy delicate food, but should at least let people have enough food when they spent over 350 dollars for a meal.
