Oishii Boston Ratings and Reviews
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
We’ve been searching for great sushi in Boston and we’ve finally found it at Oishii. Great hot and cold appetizers (pork belly buns are a must) and cool cocktail menu. The maki was a mix of traditional and creative. Attentive service. Next time we will sit at the sushi bar to watch the chefs at work. Prices are steep but worth it for the quality. Careful not to over order.
Overall very good+options for foodies as well as non-experts.
The main dining room is best with view on sushi bar.
Down side: AC blasting in wintertime + background music for milleniums getting bored and having nothing to tell eachother.
Pick back room for quiet dining experience.
Pricey although Tasty.
Our waiter was so helpful in figuring out what kind of sushi would be best for us to try. He made ordering fun and was so thorough in his explanations of what we were ordering so there were no surprises! He was knowledgeable on sushi and walked us through the sake flight that they offer!
Dinner was amazing, but the desserts fell flat; the chocolate lava cake was soupy and the green tea layered cake (mille feuille) was chewy (like it had been in the fridge for a couple days) and lacked flavor.
As the restaurant filled up, our service became much slower.
Although several of the dishes were superb, we felt they were overpriced compared to similar offerings at restaurants in Boston, NYC, and other major culinary cities around the world.
Horrifically overpriced sushi and sashimi. The sushi rice was bone-dry and the "chef choice" sashimi was akin to something you'd get at a supermarket for lunch. The worst was the $25"explosive shrimp" maki- it looked like something you'd get at a TGIF. It's completely unacceptable that something of that low quality was offered on the menu.
(I should have known what I was walking into when I saw that the menu also offered steaks and other prime cuts. Unless you're Nobu, that's a gigantic red flag for a sushi place)
I expected better from a high-end sushi place but it appears that the paucity of high-quality sushi in Boston has allowed this restaurant to get away with serving mediocre quality food at exorbitant prices to unsuspecting Boston residents. Save your money and go to Long John Silver's if you want comparable quality seafood.
Top of the top, well above expectations, Salmon on Fire, scargots tempura and foie gras are really incredible, after having dinner with my family we returned the next day for lunch with my daughter, not cheap but worth every dollar.
If you are visiting Boston, never miss a chance to visit Oiishi.
