In our beautiful full bar, along with an extensive drink list, we have a unique selection of Japanese Beers and Whiskeys, a large Sake list as well as New England's largest Shochu selection.

“Good sushi bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

This place has a great outdoor patio right on Newbury st. good for a warm night.
Sushi was good, not remarkable. We had the sushi pizza, a little small for $11 but tasty. The rolls were good not particularly inventive.
Decent miso soup. Probably would try a different place next time we're in town.

“Great Sushi, great alcohol, and great service!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

This place right on Newbury street in Boston has it all! It also closes to my work place. The cozy patio creates a nice ambience, especially in the summer when they have their own Jazz band. The sushi -just to name one thing out of their diverse menu - is really tasty and nicely decorated. It is also a fully recommendable place for a drink! Various cocktails and awesome Scorpion bowls (in different colors!) are available at the bar downstairs.

“Delicious sushi and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

I have been to Itadaki quite a few times and am from outside the Boston area - it is one of the best in Boston for sushi and by far my favorite restaurant on Newbury St. The rolls and signature dishes are very tasty and presented excellently by the chefs. Furthermore, the atmosphere and decor are accommodating to all occasions, including a date night, as well as for families and big parties. Their scorpion bowl is a hit!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

I recently visited Itadaki and the service as well as the food was excellent. The server was very knowledgeable of the menu and gave some great suggestions. They have a variety of classic rolls as well as signature rolls. The rising sun, volcano, cape codder and mango are a must try ! Very tasty with a lot of different flavors that complement each other. They also have an extensive sake menu. We tried the dassai bottle of sake and it was delicious ! The patio is best to seat at as it calls for people watching and a beautiful atmosphere on newbury street. Overall, we had a great experience and can't wait to come back !

I got a table in the patio, and let me tell you, this is one of the best sushi places in Back Bay. Food was delicious, the service was good. Manager came our table to check if everything was ok. They also had live music going on. Definitely recommend it.
