I visited Uni on two occasions, as I was staying at the Eliot hotel. I was traveling alone, so I sat at the bar, where I was waited on promptly. The food was excellent, particularly the "late night ramen" I enjoyed on a Saturday evening. The restaurant has a good and friendly vibe - great variety of patrons. I didn't... More

My Daughter are Australian and on vacation in Boston. All the restaurant reviews recommended this restaurant. In Sydney we are used to high quality Japanese such as Zushi, Sake and Sushi E - this was average compared to these three restaurants. The only saving grace was the Tuna.

Did the chefs tasting with a few friends and had a blast. The manager recommended different sakes to go with each course and it was just fantastic. Will definitely be coming back here next time I'm in town.

What can I say? Superb sushi restaurant. I know my sushi very well and I'd eat here anytime I'm in Boston. Their Sake selection is very strong and the guys know their sake. Whether for a quick drink or nice romantic meal I'd recommend anybody who hasn't been there already. This place makes me want to live in Boston.

Had dinner there and it was an amazing culinary experience! Everything that we tried was very good! The staff was very friendly and although it was packed, the orders were served on a timely manner. It is worth a try!

We stayed in the Eliot Hotel which houses the Uni restaurant (in fact that was the reason for staying at the hotel). Uni was a totally superb experience - food, service, décor were all first class. This together with Umi in Atlanta is the best Japanese restaurant I have dined at in the U.S. - way better than some of... More

We used to visit Uni sashimi bar very frequently when the old Clio was in the large upstairs space. It was casual, polished and exacting in the dishes it created and produced, a true creative driving force on the Boston food scene. We do visit the "new " Uni regularly and really like the place and its food. Some of... More

As a peuvian who loves japanese food, I was delighted to find 3 dishes which similar flavours to the food in my country; which I missed a lot btw. I had the omakase, which were about eleven courses and cost of $125. Of course, pretty much all the dishes were awesome, so, I will just mention some of my favourites,... More

Great food and great service. Food came out at a good pace. They were even accommodating to move our reservation as we were running late.

Five of us converged on Uni on May 28, 2016. Uni is located in the Elliot Hotel, and has a very agreeable dining room. Great staff, great display and array of fancy fish cooked up in a tiny prep area. These guys are good. Two (2) hours after we sat down, and what seemed like an endless procession of goodies... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
