    Fantastic special occasion treat - all the food and drinks are consistently high-quality and the servers are attentive (though not overbearing) and knowledgable. The atmosphere is fun and inviting.

    It was an amazing experience! We had the crispy rice, edamame and the popcorn shrimp as appetizers. Then we tried the sushi-sashimi combination, Yaki Sea scallops with miso butter and a bunch of different rolls. Everything was delicious. And looks as good as it tastes. Our server was always happy and very helpful. Totally recommended!

    Dinner was fantastic. We were a bit overwhelmed with menu but no fear our waiter jumped right in and guided us to delicious selections. Wagyu meatballs, yellow fin tuna, niji roll, fatty tuna, demon saki (in a box). Excellent quality fish, melt in your mouth fresh. Will be back for sure!

    Really loved the experience. Quality of fish is outstanding, a bit pricy and decor is understated but elegant. I would definitely come back. Deducting some points for service as they were not as attentive with refilling water for our table for the full dining duration.

    We go to the one in LA all the time so wanted to check this location out and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the service even better. Our servers made our night special and were so lovely…friendly and professional. The restaurant is beautiful too. Great place!!!

    This was by far the best sushi I’ve had in Boston and some of the best I’ve ever had. The low lighting and aesthetic feel of Blue Ribbon make it a perfect date spot. Must order the Crispy Rice!

    The restaurant was very loud so it was hard to heard the wait staff. I was seated alone at the sushi bar and it took a while after I was done with my food to get service. The food was also very mediocre compared to the price. I’ve been to places that are better priced for what you get. However they were very understanding after I got confused about what I ordered on the menu. When I sat down at the sushi bar right away the chef handed me a bowl of salmon which was a really nice touch. I would not recommend.

    We were hoping for the "chef's selection" to be more creative. The food was very good anyway. the music was loud and "clubby" . Maybe because it was NYE? Annoying for a regular night though.

    Service is good! Food selection for omakase needs better balance of planning cold courses served into warmer courses. Also 90% of nigiri served was very regular. They only 1 element of new england ingredient nigiri. Maybe the restaurant was looking to serve the local palette more than world class standards which is okay! The greatest thing we ate was cuddledish with butter sashimi & Unagi nigiri. Dessert was just mochi which again nothing exciting because I have a feeling they dont want to put in actual effort to make dessert in house. I would recommend them hire a pastry chef or make something simple but Japanese like black sesame icecream. Overall not worth the $150 head price or maybe $150 simply cannot afford a decent omakase and they need to recreate something better at a higher budget. Alcohol & wine selection is amazing, much more enjoyable than omakase. Would never order omakase again but would come back for drinks in this environment. Highlights would be drinking Le Mesnil Blanc De Blanc & the Lincourt Pinot Noir.

    We ordered the chefs pick of sushi for the night. This was listed to include the best cuts of sushi offered for the night. The quality overall of each of the fish was good, however the flavor combinations weren’t what we were expecting as far as the pricing. I would consider Blue Ribbon an option for sushi in Boston, but firmly believe I’ve had stronger offerings. The service we received was outstanding!

    Been to Blue Ribbon in Miami Beach several times so I was quite pleased they decided to open up a spot in Boston. Sushi was indeed very good, fresh and varied- best to order one or two of the platters for the best deal. Service was outstanding. The blue ribbon maki is a must try. Overall a much welcomed new addition to the Boston foodie scene. Will be back soon (and often!).
