Serving inventive Japanese cuisine using the freshest seafood from Tokyo’s famed Tsukiji market and local New England fishermen, and borrowing influence from the streets of Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore, Bangkok and Bangladesh, Uni is the evolution of Ken Oringer’s intimate sashimi bar of the same name, which expanded into the former Clio space in 2016. UNI is currently helmed by Executive Chef David Bazirgan.

Top level music was way too loud. Great for a bar scene. Could not have a conversation!
Luckily we were able to move downstairs.
Our waitress Alexis was superb! Very informative, had great honest recommendations!
The food was out of this world! Even better than expected!
Sake selection was very good also.
Can’t wait to return.

Everything was exceptional... except for the noise. It was insanely, unbearably loud, and I couldn't hear anything my server said. I don't know what fish I got in my omakase because I gave up straining to understand her.

Uni is a classic restaurant, serving very high-end sushi, and related products. We had theee rolls, and two bowls from their menu. All of it was terrific, memorable, with an amazing taste to it. I would have to say that the highlight was the chow fun noodles, which were very unexpected, but extremely flavorful and very very well prepared. Absolutely worth treating yourself to this amazing place.

The only issue was that in the counter there were too many people tight side by side.

The food was fresh and delicious but for the cost of each item, you don't get a lot of quantity. After ~$100 each at dinner, we ended up needing to eat pizza later on :)

did not have table we requested. food excellent and creative. service way too slow. they were super busy and I am really happy for the restaurant- they deserve to be busy and making money again! but maybe they need more staff. I will go back because usually it's great food and service. maybe hard to find staff right now.

Food was a great experience.
There was not enough light !! we could not see what we were eating, too bad as the presentation was (I think) beautiful but not visible.
With more lighting, there experience would have been amazing.

Every interaction at uni was lovely. From our greeting by the host, to our server and the chef himself! The whole team is knowledgeable, professional and obviously loves what they do! It made our experience that more memorable. The food went above and beyond my expectations and the attention to detail created a high touch experience.

It was a little too loud due to the high volume of music and tables being very close together. Difficult to hear the server and converse at the table. Food was amazing though. It would probably be more enjoyable experience if tables were further apart or on a less busy night. I would recommend for the food and I would try again for the atmosphere!

Great food. Imaginative preparations/combinations that work well to provide great flavor experiences. Dining space and food presentation are attractive and service is generally attentive though you should ask to have your cold sake or white wine placed at the table rather than having it chill at the bar. Maybe it was a busy night but over time it got quite loud which didn’t seem in keeping with the space or the food but the food was so good that one could overlook the noise. Just not a place for quiet intimate conversation. Overall one of the best restaurants we’ve been to in Boston.

We got table inside. The food was incredible.
The tables are very close to each other and it was hard to ignore the conversation at the next table.
Also, the wait time for each dish was very long. But the food was so good, we will come back.

The food was superb. The wait-staff were friendly and helpful, but at this price point should probably have a little more familiarity with the menu. (That's on management, in my opinion.)

Still great after first visiting 5 years ago.
The service is super friendly and fun, the menu is interesting and creative and yet pays respect to the cultures and the product. Really worth visiting in Boston.
