Top Shelf Sushi

We had the pleasure to dine at Oishii sevreal times now. Oishii has one of the widest array of sushi and sashimi of any Sushi place in America, save and except Sushi Yasuda in NYC. Bring your checkbook. This place is expensive, and worth it.

We sat on the bar side and our bartender-waitress Nancy was terrific. She was attentive, pleasant, & knowledgeable. I had the organic chicken teriyaki, which was delicious. My fiancé can not say enough great things about the sushi. He got the chefs recommendations and they were amazing. It was pricey, but well worth it. We also got dessert. Green tea... More

Great food, a fusion of traditional and modern done beautifully and presented like an art piece. After an initial seating misunderstanding the manager, Nicole, was a star and kept an eye to make sure everything ran smoothly, which it did. This is a true find, amazing food and a really "cool" place, whether you sit in the bar or the... More

I should say that it's just possible that we were unlucky with our choice, although one would hope not given that it was the most expensive thing on the menu. We all had the tasting menu at $150 (without drinks). Many dishes simply didn't work. The first, a sashimi served in an ingenious smoke-filled goblet, lacked subtlety. It simply tasted... More

I had a fantastic dinner here to celebrate a birthday. We were seated promptly with a great view of the action in the kitchen. The interior is modern and minimalist. Our waitress answered all our questions in a very helpful, descriptive way that enabled better ordering. She was knowledgeable about available accommodations for gluten free diets and the allergy was... More

My wife and I ate at Oishii for the first time last week. What a very pleasant surprise. A very extensive menu of sushi, sashimi, cooked entrees and saki. We had a delicious black cod appetizer, a sushi roll that was fabulous, individual sushi pieces and a perfectly cooked salmon special. Couple that with a couple of bottles of saki... More

We had reservations and instead of cheerfully greeted upon arrival our group was immediately off-put by the mean young hostess at the entrance. For one second, I thought we were at a South Beach club and she was in no mood to deal with patrons. Other than that, the restaurant was exceptional--but does not deserve 5 stars as long as... More

Chef Ting's creations are masterful, reflecting his long experience as a chef and deep love of food and dedication to his craft. The restaurant is contemporary, clean, upscale but very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Staff attentive and knowledgeable. The dishes are creative, innovative, and delicious. Many look almost too beautiful to eat - but you are always glad you did!... More

On a tour of colleges in Boston, we brought our sushi-loving family to Oishii Boston. It was indeed "delicious" but the presentation and creativity were what made the evening special. Let the waiter guide you. Ours was very knowledgeable and was excited to challenge us with new dishes. We initially asked for the traditional fare but he convinced us to... More
