Made a reservation and walked into an empty restaurant. Hostess put us at table by kitchen entrance. When we asked to move to quieter location she gave us 'the look' and moved us to a slightly better table. Field green salad was brown wilted romaine lettuce. Food was served with 15 min gap between arrival at table. Dirty tables throughout... More

Went here with a friend for an early dinner. Not many people there at the time. Very nice young man who served our table. We ordered the soba salad, which was very good, and some vegetarian sushi rolls, also good. Also had a nice glass of white wine. The atmosphere is very nice; romantic, ambient, etc. Second time around the... More

It was an incredibly hot day so a light sushi lunch seamed in order. The sushi was good, not great, but the service was slow considering it was after 2pm and there were only three tables of diners. We ordered off of the lunch menu and were supposed to receive soup or salad. The server took our orders but forgot... More

Went to this restaurant because there is lots of advertisement in the sounding area. We asked to be seated outside. Hostess provided us with menus and advised that waiter would be with us shortly. That was not the case. We waited over 20 minutes and no one came back...not even to offer a water. We got up and simply left... More

I wasn't expecting much from Haru since it is not a "traditional" sushi restaurant, but one of the newer trendy establishments. However, I found the quality of the fish to be good, the service friendly and helpful atmosphere enjoyable. Like many of the new trendy sushi restaurants, Haru has an extensive selection of the non-traditional rolls, as well as other... More

I usually eat here at least once during quarterly visits to Boston. The atmosphere is nice, the sushi bar is a nice place to sit and sushi is pretty good. Very generous pieces of fish on top of rice (nigiri) and also as sashimi. Service is friendly and polite. Sushi chefs look like they know what they're doing. I'd say... More

I went there with my husband for dinner because the restaurant seemed nice . We were seated in a really small place and right next to the an exterior wall, too close to other costumers even if there were a lot of tables available, more comfortable and in front of a window. The service was terrible. The table was not... More

I went there when it was not that busy and found the service attentive but very slow. I go to Ra in Phoenix and I know the sushi service is slow, but this was slower and the quality of fish was just not there. The highlight was the lobster gyoza and this was delicious. I would recommend this place as... More

Never have I been so mistreated at a restaurant. We walked into a 3/4 empty restaurant and were asked if we had a reservation, since we were a walk in, we were sent to the bar. The bartender a rude, gruff and aggressive man barely spoke to us. He threw the napkins on the bar, shook his head at everything... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch since he loves sushi. They seem to a have a decent selection I really only like California rolls so I ordered that and the Asian chicken salad. They missed the mark on the salad. Shredded VERY spicy chicken with lettuce and artichoke hearts. The dressing was not good and again extremely spicy.... More
