Poorly executed sushi and maki. The balance between the fish and rice is out of proportion and it seems to me that they fuss around too much. For example, their O toro nigiri sushi was topped off with a scallion garnish which got in your teeth while trying to chew it and it was inedible. We went on a Sunday and there was only one server waiting about 5 tables at once so everything was extremely slow.
Most dishes are excellent and very well balanced. Service is nice and accommodating.
Since I moved out of Boston's South End in 2013, Oishii Boston went downhill in every respect except food. The food is still out of this world, just as I remember. The service was atrocious: from having to work hard to attract the attention of our waitress, who condescended to take our order but was acting as though she was really much, much too busy to go over the menu with us; to the maitre d' whose completely unwelcoming demeanor makes one wonder why you would want to employ this unpleasant young man in this capacity. We also had to ask for basic things like water; needless to say, our water glasses were never refilled. The super loud music was extremely annoying (thankfully, the staff turned it down, although we had to ask several times). I don't see myself coming back, even though I loved the food.
Best sushi ever. My husband and I are both sushi lovers and we always have an amazing meal. Love this place!
Always a good time at Oishii
Fresh fish, great service
The food was too salty and the waiter never fills the water until you ask him to. Expected better service and food for the price. I would not recommend this place or would go back. I had better food at a buffet.
Went for my girlfriend's birthday before we went to catch a show. The place was nice and the staff friendly. Got their sashimi sampler, uni pasta, and seafood paella. The paella was a little disappointing, since the seafood was slightly overcooked and overall rather bland. sashimi sampler was a lot bigger than I expected. Uni pasta definitely tasted like sea urchin, though it was hard to find actual pieces of sea urchin, perhaps it was the dim light? or maybe just mixed too much?
Luscious food! Last two times I've visted, the owner came and greeted the table personally. We had a great time, and the great meal I promised my friends did not disappoint at all!
Great fresh sushi and food. Extensive sake menu
I love this place. The food is amazing, service is great and it’s a cool spot. Definitely get the Tokyo mule.
Superb food. The lunch menu is a great way to try small bites if a wide variety of things.
Excellent food and dining experience . Strong recommendation.
Oh Em Gee!!! Do NOT miss the tasting menu.
It was a friend get together occasion. The food was really good beyond my expectation. I really love the Uni sashimi and salmon on fire. For sushi options, I love the foie gras with truffle on top. One of the best sushi I’ve ever had in my life. The only missing point is our seating is at the corner even though I made reservations ahead. The lighting wasn’t so good. But overall I would rate this dining experience five stars
