It was a lot of fun

Visited for a graduation party. We were seated promptly. Had the 2 person Hibachi special - chicken, steak, lobster tail, shrimp, and scallops. Food was quite tasty, especially the scallops. Hibachi chef very entertaining. I have seen some bad reviews about service, so we were a little... read more

Osaka consistently plates their sushi beautiful. It is delicious and fresh and the upscale yet relaxed atmosphere inside is very pleasing. The wait staff is attentive and helpful. I love Osaka and their Toro roll is delicious as is their Truffle Salmon appetizer. Price is reasonable for how great their sushi is.

I made a reservation after I read positive reviews from tripadvisor. I visited with my wife and two teens and we were very disappointed. The restaurant's decoration appears tired, even the hibachi grill ovens appear worn down. Staff were not very attentive and were a little short at times. Food appeared fresh, however, taste once cooked was less than average.... More

Nice atmosphere, excellent food, outstanding sushi. The room with the hibachi tables can get quite noisy but the chefs put on a good show, very entertaining for children, excellent food. But we go there regularly for the great sushi. We're there at least once a week. Try the tuna dumplings -- in spite of the name it is like sushi.

Since moving to Brookline we've eaten sushi here at least 6 times (have never eaten in the hibachi room, however). Their sushi and special rolls menu is a bit overwhelming, but the food always tastes perfectly fresh and is well-prepared, irrespective of how busy they are (can get very busy/noisy on weekend evenings). Service is quite impersonal and could definitely... More

I Came here only once at the suggestion of my friends. The food and service were ok. It is one of the more expensive Japanese places in Brookline.

This is a combo sushi and japan style steak house. The steak house seems to get the families to enjoy the food and the show that you get from a Japan style steak house. We had some of their special Sushi dishes. I enjoyed them. My friend thought the Dragon Roll was a little weak, but for the most part... More

Went on a busy Friday night and got right in. They have tables in the dining room and a hibachi room along with a downstairs that offers Karaoke. Huge menu to choose from. Lots of different drinks. Service was just okay. and there was no explanation on what was included with dinners. Soup and salads showed up for some of... More

Osaka is tucked away on Green St., a small distance from Coolidge Corner, but it's quite a big restaurant. Definitely, Osaka is a cool place to go, with a jazzy, comfortable decor, delicious food, and noisy eatertainment, if you want it -- chefs with knives tossing food around. But there are more quiet places to be, too, if you don't... More
