I loved the location and it had a nice atmosphere. The food was good and the service was great. I recommend a table by the window if at all possible. Great place to people watch!

Perhaps this is a chain sushi place but I have to say that it is consistently very good. It is reasonably priced and rivals the higher end sushi places in Boston. I eat here every time I am in Boston, often 2-3 times out of my 5 night stay. The fish pieces are very generous for both the nigiri and... More

We have been to Haru both in NYC and here in Boston many times and have always had a great experience. We often bring friends visiting from out of town who enjoy sushi. This visit was disappointing. The food was fine, but the service was awful. The first hint that something was wrong was that it took the server twenty... More

I used to go to Haru a lot in NYC so am pretty familiar with the restaurant chain. The fish was good, not super fresh but it was fine. The rice was over vinegared which detracted a lot for me. It isn't supposed to be that aggressively vinegared.

We ate here while on business downtown. Good sushi and other options besides. The fillet and grilled chicken appetizers, combined with sushi forms a lovely meal for two.

Ate here for lunch during a conference and the sushi and service were good. My co-worker raved about the green salad with chicken which was beautifully and colorfully presented. l would definitely return if in Boston again.

So, i love sushi but i love efficiency even more. First, the food... The boston uncommon roll, california roll, dynamite, strawberry and dragon roll were all fantastic. Loved them, the tuna tartar with quail egg was very fresh and nicely served. The taco sushi was interesting. Would eat food again. Service? HORRIBLE HORRIBLE. She really tried but it took forever...

We were staying across the street and noticed this new Japanese restaurant. It was snowing and since haru is summer, we thought we needed some summer. Very nice service and good fish on the rice. I come from a family that does not like the sushi too sweet; vinegary is best and this rice was good. I thought that the... More

This little sushi place seems tucked away past the Cheesecake Factory and 5 Napkins by Copley. The sign isn't easy to spot from a distance, but we certainly were glad that we walked the extra distance to discover just what Haru was. This well appointed, quiet, service-oriented restaurant was just the ticket for our lunch. the sushi was very good,... More
