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

My evening with friends started out poorly. Our waittress was nice but rather slow (or maybe inexperienced). It took her 30 mins alone in regards to our cocktails for a party of 4 pple. I have never been here before but it was ranked very highly by Zagat in the food category. I did not favor the beef carpaccio. It... More

We started with wine and cocktails which were well prepared. The appetizers and sushi were interestingly delicious. Our servers were very attentive. My colleague and I ordered the Sea Bass which was cooked to perfection. The dessert was also wonderful. The ambience was great.The only constructive criticism is that the meal was a bit expensive.

I went here with my wife and another couple. We went on a Wed. night and attempted to make reservations but could only sit in the bar area bodes well. Most places don't have a wait, never mind a need for reservations on a Wed. Our server who was the bartender was knowledge and attentive. The only thing we ate... More

Oishii is just fantastic. The food is very tasty. We misread the choices for edamame, thinking it said "boiled" and it came "broiled" instead... and was more flavorful than we'd imagined. The sushi was general good... perhaps 4.5 stars (not as good as I've gotten in Japan; better than just about anywhere in the US). However, the rolls were incredible.... More

High level of creativity and quality across the menu. Great items were Miso Black Cod, Seafood Pancake, Duck App,etc.. Sushi and Sashimi were also very good. Nice atmosphere and professional service. Ranks in my top five Sushi experiences. Whenever I get back to Boston, I will head to Oishii.

Beautiful restaurant with very interesting twists on the presentation of their very fresh sashimi, sushi, and tartares. I especially liked my Toro Tartare served in a huge block of ice. Nice touch to a delicious dish. My son had a wonderful pork belly ramen which was definitely not a disappointment. Will return on our next visit to Boston.
