    The sushi and sashimi were good but definitely overpriced. The ambiance is not worth the price tag. Service was excellent

    Never fails to delight! Best sushi experience, always! The tuna sashimi cannot be beat and the smoked hamachi has to be one of the sexiest apps ever.

    Food is phenomenal! Staff are professional, timely, and knowledgeable. The aesthetic is clean and classy. Obviously pricy, but definitely worth it if you can afford it. We ordered a number of appetizers, and they were all amazing. Best ikura ever! The A5 Wagyu is truly sublime as they say! And I didn’t know deserts could look so good! And they definitely tasted good! I will have to go back here eventually.

    Creative and amazing presentation. The fish was generally good, although not as good as I was expecting. My biggest complaint was that the omakase included too much "filler". A 9-course omakase included a dessert course, a cooked wagyu beef course, a cooked chilean sea bass course, and a cooked crab course. Only 5 of the courses were raw fish. Disappointing.

    Starters were delicious - wild mushrooms and cod Rolls - good quality ingredients however extremely heavy and way too many ingredients. Trying to hard to be different but you end up feeling full after 1 piece. Not nice at all. Service is great.

    Food was ok. Nothing special about anything we tried. Presentation of sushi rolls and app were really nice, but the taste did not correlate with presentation. However, the red bean creme brulee dessert was really.

    Oishi was a great experience. The food was great and very well thought out. We had Maki and sashimi. The rolls were unique and the fish was exceptional. Almost all the rolls had a tempura element which was a little disappointing. Still a great meal with exceptional fish.

    My husband and I went for a special date night dinner. The food was delicious. We ordered the treasure spoon, lobster dumplings, hamachi truffle, the maki, and for dessert we had the coconut sphere. Everything was beautifully presented and very delicious. Highly recommend.

    This meal was outstanding. Highest-quality sushi fish with creative added elements, like a punchy strawberry slice on a piece of salmon. Crispy mango and crispy salmon maki rolls were our favorites. Grapefruit julep cocktail (daily special) was delightful. Very efficient and pleasant service.

    Food was delicious and the service was great. I would definitely go back or go back for a special occasion. I loved the crispy rice with tune and the wagu beef skewers which were so tender and had a smoky flavor. They were served with a smoky hibachi grill. So good. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    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.

    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!
