    I was excited to try this restaurant because the menu offered some items that normally do not appear on menus in Boston. The food is mediocre at best. The sushi rice was terrible. The rice had little taste and cooked too hard so that the grains of rice was separating from the sushi and rolls. We got two TINY pieces of sushi with salmon for $12.00 and the hamachi tuna still had rubbery skin left on it so that we could not cut through it. The portions are very miniscule and way over priced. I would not recommend this restaurant it was very disappointing to say the least.

    We were refused to be seated because one of our guests had a service dog. We even notified the restaurant about the service dog when we made a reservation online. We nicely explained they could not refuse to seat us because we have a service dog and "service dog certification" doesn't exist. After showing them the ADA website and Massachusetts state website clearly state service dogs have an access to anywhere the handler has access, they refused and even asked dog's vaccination record (which we were happy to present even though they are not supposed to ask). We understand that all employees are unaware of all ADA regulations; however, we provided all the information they needed to confirm. We wish the owner will train all employees so it won't happen to other customers.

    I was pleasantly suprised by the authenticity and freshness of fish offered her especially since we're next to Boston University, I thought it was some more generic. I was very happy with our dinner and everything was delectable.

    My wife and I decided to celebrate her birthday at this restaurant while we were on a trip to visit our friends in Cambridge. We were not disappointed by Nagomi. The layout of the restaurant is suitable for izakaya style dining. I was surprised to see so many families dining together. This set an unexpected ambiance, but all was well.

    Signature Omakase for 2 paired with hot sake, grilled squid, and unagi maki for the meal. All presented in an interesting way, VERY fresh, and very tasty. Japanese passion fruit margarita and dirty mango martinis were a great finisher. Would very highly recommend to anyone who enjoys fresh seafood.

    My wife and I came here for Valentine's lunch. Although we didn't get the Valentine's special, we ordered the premium omakase for two. The fish was fresh and the cut seemed premium. I found the sushi rice used for the roll to be too dry. The rice on the Nigiri was a bit better. If the fish quality was a 10/10, the rice quality would be around 5/10 (I am very picky on sushi rice). The portion was just right for lunch (30 or so pieces). The free sake came as a surprise (so-so quality, but it's free). The service was okay. We were greeted warmly by the receptionist who seated us. There was a draft from an open door in the back of the restaurant that kept the place really cold for a while near where we sat. Note to owner: don't use that door during business hours or have some kind of partition to section off the dining area. Our server(s) did their best to explain the menu, but it wasn't always clear. Considering the food quality, the price was not bad at all, around $160 total.

    Had our Christmas Eve dinner here. It was fantastic! Everything tasted super fresh and presentation was beautiful. Service was a little slow but I think they were a bit short-staffed for the holiday. Wide selection of items on the menu - I wish they did have more creative desserts other than green tea ice cream and green tea cheesecake but everything else had great variety. Prices super fair too, especially compared to other Japanese spots in the area. Highly recommend!

    Fantastic time. Cozy ambiance (low lighting and the vibe is lively but you don’t have to yell the whole time. Decor is cozy but modern Japanese-style, and there’s even a cute water feature by the entrance with real koi!), yummy food (we got a little bit of everything and shared), and superb service (shoutout to our waitress, Sophie, who was so sweet, attentive, and dropped a good joke at dessert). I went here with my boyfriend and my parents for an early dinner on a Saturday night. My mother is Japanese, so taking her out to eat Japanese food anywhere outside of Japan can be a bit of a gamble — she was happy with the food and the level of quality for the price point (aka, we happily finished our meal). If you have been to this location before when it was a different restaurant, you have to visit again. My only complaint is that the music could have been just a notch or two quieter, and I kind of wished they played Japanese music. I wish this spot was here when I went to BU many moons ago — would def recommend this spot for a cute night with friends or a date. I’ll be back to try the ramen and more. P.s. they have a Japanese IPA on the menu (which, in my experience, is unusual unless you’re at a gourmet Japanese spot), and the Yuzu Rose Margarita was delicious.
