This restaurant really doesn't look much from the street, in fact I wasn't convinced we were in the right place, however the cab driver assured us we were and that it was a great choice for dinner. He wasn't wrong. The vibe of the restaurant is very cool but not pretentious, the tables are in 3 separate rooms so each... More

Great sake menu and choice of sushi including different o-toro and uni! The bar area looks and feel more like a bar than the fine dining experience in the restaurant. Avoid the downstairs area as the restaurant loses all its charm.

*** Location - Not well marked from the street! Neighborhood seems sketchy! The cab driver wasn't even familiar with the area! ***Service - **** The female food expeditor was excellent in explaining the dishes. ***Server could've been more attentive. ***Atmosphere - You can dress up but I think you can dress down, too! Lounge-like. ***Food - Taste should match the... More

One of the finest dining experiences we have ever enjoyed, the chef/owner @ Oishii has created an amazingly innovative food menu as well as excellent craft cocktails from the beautiful bar. The Lychee martini is a good choice to start - and we enjoyed several of the other cocktails also. The most fun dish is Salmon on Fire - pieces... More

What a surprise fantastic original Japanese dishes, with world clas service and quality food. The silver cod was excellent, the oysters were suburb, the mushrooms were tasty and as good as they get. Service was fantastic. The sushi and maki were all extremely fresh and well presented.

You can never be disappointed in having sushi here. It is always the freshest and the best. We started with the sea weed salad which is of decent size and excellent taste. The tuna hand roll was fabulous. We had the soft shell crab roll which I liked but I actually like this better at Yama in Wellesley the way... More
