Great Sushi, cute space

We've gotten sushi at Otake several times in the past few weeks and have not been disappointed. Excellent spicy tuna, spicy salmon and crazy maki! Love having great sushi so close to home!

Those with dietary restrictions may find this menu limiting. Otherwise it's a top-quality place with good service and an excellent wine selection.

We went to celebrate New Year's eve with some friends and had a truly wonderful experience. The staff was very informative and helpful and all of the food was delicious. It was a wonderful atmosphere and completely unrushed.

Lumiere continues to provide a top Boston dining experience in the suburbs. The food, ambiance and service are every bit as good as the best restaurants in Boston.

We have eaten at Lumiere before and enjoyed it. We had a reservation for 5 this weekend, including one family member who has a special diet. When we called to inquire if it was possible to accommodate this bland diet restriction, the reservationist declared that they could not help us out. When I asked if they couldn't just make some...

We dined here a few nights ago with friends we had not seen for some time, and it was actually their suggestion because they love the place. We can see why. The restaurant is small enough to be cozy, and our booth was quiet enough for normal conversation, which was especially important this time, given the circumstances. I had the... More

It had been many years since I had dined at Lumiere, and I was eager to see if the restaurant would still deliver the excellence I remembered. There is a slight aura of mystery as you approach the restaurant, with light seeping out from the edges of the full-length window blinds that don't allow you to see inside. We were... More

My husband and I had been wanting to try Lumiere for some time because of excellent reviews. We had heard the staff and ambiance could be a bit stuffy, but did not find that to be the case at all. Atmosphere is casual and, at least, the waitperson we had was very gracious. The amuse bouche was truly unremarkable..something with... More

Delicious food for appetizers, main course, and dessert. House wine list had really good choices. This is an upscale place and very busy, so be sure to make reservations in advance. Impeccable and knowledgeable service.

This is our go to place for special occasions as it is so 'special'! Just go! You will see and taste. Don't miss the soup! The wine pairings are perfect. The staff is top notch. The menu is wonderful and ever changing.If you want the tartar, ask for it right when you sit down. It goes fast!
