It is in a marginal neighborhood, down an alley. Unprepossessing from the outside is an understatement. The you enter and it is minimalist cement, wood, japanese decor. But you don't come for the location. You come for the best sushi in Boston, and maybe in...More

First of all there is no Sushi there, just Sashimi and Nigiri ! No rolls! No ginger ! No wasabi. Nigiris are served at room temperature. It looks like a minimalistic french cuisine mix with japanese tradition but a highly over priced and an unsuccessful...More

We went there for our first anniversary and although it was a nice experience, we will definitely not go back. We arrived a bit early and we were "offered" to have a drink waiting for the table (at the bar) to free up. We had...More

We came to this resturant for a family birthday. We ordered the tasting menu and almost everything on there was amazing. The sauces, herbs and oils they used were amazing and was like an adventure of the taste buds. The tuna was amazing! One thing...More

We've always wanted to check out O Ya since it's been pretty hyped up. The service was amazing and the food was just spectacular! We didn't end up doing the tasting menu, but just ordered a bunch of dishes to taste. We spent about $200...More

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
