Great meal right near the commons

We found this place while waiting for the Ghost tour to start in the Commons. They had great food. All of the plates were nicely presented and very tasty. Not too overpriced. Enjoyed the food and service.

The first time I tried it it was a delivered sushi that they bring it home. It was great. However, this time I went with a friend for dinner at their restaurant. Tempura was perfect, the rolls taste great and the spring rolls were delicious. The place was crowded but nit uncomfortable and the service was fast and polite. Great... More

We stopped by after a visit at MGH, and were seated easily---around 12:30 p.m. on a weekday. The very friendly and prompt staff were attentive, and we ordered drinks. They were out of the plum wine (she had to come back and tell me), so I opted for soda. I ordered the chicken curry Bento box, and my hubby had... More

Very reasonably priced lunch menu. The sushi and sashimi lunches were fresh, presented beautifully and tasted delicious. Bento boxes are large and well presented. The miso soup was excellent.

I snuck out of a two-day conference, desperate to eat something other than hotel food, and stumbled across this place. How glad I was! The sushi was very fresh, some of the best I've ever eaten. The decor was attractive and service good.

I've been to Fin's a couple of times because it has good sushi is only a 2 minute walk from my apartment. The interior is clean and nicely decorated, and the menu is fairly priced. It's a nice place to grab dinner with some friends or go with a significant other. It's right on Chestnut Hill Avenue so you can... More

So this is my go to place for a quick sushi fix, but they have some issues. Often when calling in orders you get a busy signal. It's 2013 - get another line or find a solution so that multiple people can use the same phone. Also - sometimes the sushi is rather warm when I pick it up, so... More

Sake bombing - a ridiculous but oh so fun invention. Went here last night with a large group of friends and we greeted with friendly smiles and amazing service all night long. They were able to handle our noisiness, indecisiveness with the order and repeated yells of "sake, sake, bomb, bomb". The food was up to the mark with special... More

I had dinner here last night and was really pleasantly surprised. I was not expecting this at all! The restaurant has a nice vibe with good music and nice lighting - super friendly server (but not overbearing) - and best of all, the sushi/sashimi was fantastic. Reasonable prices as well. I will definitely come back here again.
