“Amazing Sushi”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Ginko is located beneath Dante in Tremont. It's a very small restaurant, so I recommend reservations. My husband and I happened in there one Saturday evening and luckily we were able to sit at the bar. The hostess was very friendly and the bartender provided great recommendations. We LOVE sushi and this was some of the freshest and best we've ever had. I highly recommend all the specialty rolls, they are delicious. The Ginko Roll is divine, like eating a garden.

“Wonderful Sushi”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

This is a little hidden gem that is well worth exploring (even though really pricey!)

The sushi here tastes very "pure" or as a previous reviewer stated "clean". The fish is phenomenal, and their specials are creative and well rounded.

The service is not up to par (we had to hunt someone down to finally take an order), but I have to admit they are very knowledgable, and their recommendations are spot on.

The atmosphere is made to imitate an Japanese sushi bar, and I just love the setting. Usually I sit at the bar, but either way it is always a great experience to come back.

“YES.”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

You will never find it walking by or even walking straight up to it. It is down a little dark "alley stair" area next to another restaurant. You may feel like it is not the right spot, but it definitely is. Very good sushi. Waitress service was less than desirable, but I sat at the bar anyway. Counter help was great and prepared all in front of me professionally and impressively.

The Sushi was some of the best I've had. well done, I would highly recommend.

“Sushi heaven”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

All I can say is go, take your time and try as much as you can. The fish and specials are phenomenal, the saki selection is extensive and the servers extremely knowledgable. Truly if it is your first, fifth or fiftieth time and you cannot decide heed the advice of your server. Plus the bar with the running stream is great. Really try everything, especially the specials (sea urchin and poached tuna, for example) Be adverturous and you will have an amazing meal and experience all around.
