A fun restaurant where you can splurge over the top if money is of little concern. Prices are high, especially for the super creative items. If money is of some concern, try the following treats for about $150 (for 2). I attached photos of each, plus one of a shared alcohol concoction served in a faux pineapple (made for 2).... More

Amazing sushi with lots of variety. I will say it is a bit pricey but that does not seem to bother anyone since you really need to make reservations to get in. We got lucky and sat at the sushi bar. Everyone loved their sushi. Great selection of saki and good service.

I took my partner for our anniversary and was considering the tasting menu with wine and Sake pairings even though it was pretty pricey at well over $200 (I forget the exact price). When our waiter saw us pondering he suggested we not opt for it as there was a party of 40 downstairs and the chefs were fairly busy... More

Dinner was for my b-day. The restaurant was a little hard to find but thank goodness for GPS. The atmosphere was subdued but energetic. Very clean design and minimalistic. The food was superb. A must is the black cod with miso. I don't know how it was prepared but this was the best dish I ever had. We also had... More

Went to Oishii last week for a business dinner. Had heard marvelous things about Oishii including from the Uber driver who took me. It has a reputation as being the best and most expensive sushi restaurant in Boston. I am happy to report that the sushi was very good and while very expensive certainly not as expensive as some of... More

This place has some of the best sushi we have ever had. Everything tasted wonderful. We did however have a problem with our server Michael. He messed up twice on our order. First he ordered the incorrect amount of the sushi order which we were OK with. The big problem was that he totally forgot one entire dinner! At this... More

Over the years I have eaten here many times. Business, family, solo (at the bar), the menu is reliably superlative, the sushi rolls creative, the flavors over the years have neither increased or decreased in quality. They stay at the highest quality available in a city like Boston. Over the years I have eaten at sushi restaurants which in my... More

Staying in South End

Neighborhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
