Top quality Japanese food served very creatively with knowledgeable staff. Top prices to match. Recommended for special event or for entertainment expense account.

Absolutely excellent experience. Food is tremendous, service is great, and it is a relaxed atmosphere, which one might not expect at a place like this. Did the 17 course tasting menu and everything about it was great. Must try.

Very good food but its the most expensive place in town (maybe tied with Menton). The food is beautifully prepared but it doesn't provide the value for the price.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
