We popped in for lunch on a very rainy weekday afternoon and sat at the sushi bar. We were given a filthy tablet on which to view pictures of the food - that was off putting in and of itself, but we ordered and I was very careful to explain that I was sensitive to some of the heat so... More

This restaurant is coveniently located next to Bloomingdales Women Department. After hours of shopping, a stop for lunch or dinner is so satisfying. Great service, food is so good & fresh, fast service. My absolutely go to meal is the Salmon Sushi Special. It cones with miso soup, salad & salmon sashimi, salmon roll & salmon sushi. The goysa are... More

The decor is sleek and fitting for a high-end mall, but the service is mediocre and the food quality is uneven. For instance, on my second visit tonight I ordered the agedashi tofu, which was good the first time I came, but this time the tofu was old or of the wrong texture and the dish had been improperly fried....

My mother, brother, and I ate here on a quiet Sunday evening while most folks were tuning into the Pats game. So the restaurant was quiet and not too busy. I compliment the restaurant on its interesting take on sushi and I think the quality of the fish was quite good, but not outstanding. It was nice to try some... More

Daikanyama sits quietly in a corner of Bloomingdales in Newton, MA. Its decor is modern, elegant, and minimalist. The venue feels like a shrine or temple more than it does a restaurant, and would therefore not recommend bringing children Service is prompt and subtle. The specials are presented to you in a tablet. The regular menu was expansive and we... More

This is a hidden treasure because if you look for any large signage, the small entrance is hidden under the massive Bloomingdales wall. We made a reservation to use the small enclosed booth for a small family gathering and it was the perfect spot to talk in quiet and peace, Of course the food was it's excellent self as usual....

Who would have guessed that a Japanese restaurant in Bloomie's would be such a find? We ordered a pile of sushi that was so beautifully presented that I wish I'd taken a photo. I was astonished after I had eaten a couple of pieces to discover that the beautiful design I thought was part of the plate was an artful... More

I have been here for lunch a number of times. Sushi has been ok. Service is often hurried, not great-- but has been acceptable. I would say usually comparable and sometimes a bit inferior to other restaurants waitstaff-wise. Today, we were sat in a part of the restaurant which was cold. I asked the hostess to move us to the... More
