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

It's amazing. We love the atmosphere and the service. Food is the best that I had. I'm so happy to live nearby that I can eat here often.

I chose fish,which came with miso soup and salad. Though was small and delicious was $30. so beware. my husband had sukiyaki, thin slices of beef floating on broth with vegetables and... More

My husband and I always share their perfect sushi/sashimi platter for two. The meal begins with hot towels and green tea if you request it. Their salad has real greens, no iceberg, delicately dressed. Miso soup follows. The ample platter is beautifully presented with a lovely orchid (just to look at) and two oba leaves (no plastic!) to wrap around... More

I LOVE this place. I have been here 4 times now, and have had consistently delicious sushi. It is so pretty and tranquil, and the food and staff are great. I believe that fresh fish should be a given at any sushi restaurant, and they definitely do a great job in that department. What I think makes them better than... More

Daikanyama food quality varies from time to time and is generally overpriced. Service is very poor, with unfriendly wait staff, they never, ever smile. Not a good place for a business lunch as they take tooooo long.

The dishes are presented beautifully, and service is very attentive at this posh yet family friendly spot. The decor is beautiful and clean. We love going there. It's on the pricey side, but worth it. It is not really in Bloomingdales, and feels like a standalone that has one entrance to the parking lot, and another into the dept. store.
