Don't go to Douzo - Its an utter waste of time

The decor of the establishment is bland. It isn't particularly elegant, the service does not justify the price, and the place is extremely small. The spicy seafood salad is tiny, the rolls have too much rice and not enough sushi (an indicator of cheap ownership). The food was mediocre at best. I would not recommend it. I have eaten sushi at at least a hundred locations from California to New York, Japan, and Korea. For a truly authentic sushi place, that has healthy portions, a clean elegant decor, and excellent service, try A Table for All Seasons. Forget Douzo, its an overpriced, stuffy little place with an unwelcoming atmosphere, that has larger social aspirations than it does culinary ones.

Douzo Review

Huge fan of this place, however it is a bit pricey. The location is basically right off of the Back Bay train station, therefore making it a hot spot for late night dinners practically any day of the week. Take a date here, grab some quick but good sushi, or just sit by the bar for some after work hour drinks. I've only been here on a Thursday night and business was bustling, which I like seeing over an empty and quite dining room. However this does mean you should be prepared to wait a while if you visit Thurs-Sat, so try making reservations if you can. Even waiting by the bar gets tricky on these days, since it's somewhat small and gets crowded very easily.

Amazing Sushi!!!

Before going to Douzo, we were big fans of sushi, but pretty much stuck to the basics. At Douzo, we ordered the Omakase (where the chef creates a plate of whatever he chooses) for $70 (to split). It was the best, melt in your mouth sushi we have ever had! The fish was incredibly fresh and we found ourselves loving the eel and their specialty rolls. The service was great both times we went with our server being kind enough to explain what everything on the platter was (repeatedly!!). We would recommend Douzo to anyone and, although we wouldn't mind trying another sushi restaurant in Boston, we can't force ourselves to stray from Douzo!!!

Overrated Restaurant: style, but very little content.

I don't hate this place, but I don't quite get all the 5-star reviews, either. I work nearby, so I've stopped in a few times (for take-out, post-work drinks with co-workers. and dinner with friends), but I have yet to be completely satisfied with my experience. Sure, the place is pretty and the food taste almost as good as it looks (What can I say. I'm a sucker for presentation), but I still think Douzo is a case of style over content, i.e. hot looks but tepid personality.

The last time I went there for dinner, our party of four was seated quickly and our order was taken within a reasonable amount of time. We waited a little longer than what might have been expected considering it was a weeknight and they weren't horrible busy but hey...these things happen. No biggie.

So the food came. It looked lovely and it was very good but hardly amazing. No one checked on our table after they served us and when it was time for the check we waited. And waited. When we finally got our waiter's attention and asked for check, he promised it immediately. Then we waited some more. Literally half-an-hour went by between clean plates and the bill, which wouldn't have been so bad had we not waited another 30-minutes (after speaking with the hostess, etc) for the waiter to return with very little apology.

If I didn't think there were a million other places in the area that I could get better sushi (or a better deal, a better atmosphere, a better experience, etc.) I might try them again. However, Since this is hardly the case, I'll leave this place to those of you who must have more time and money to waste than I do.

Best sushi I've had so far...

The sushi was so fresh, it melted in my mouth. The waitress was wonderful & very helpful, and her suggestions were on point. Their Cocolate Volcano Lava and Banana Tempura were out-of-this-world-delicious. I have tried my share of Martinies and had not found a Martini I could say I like, but after having their Green Tea Martini, I can now say I have a Martini of preference. It was all worth every penny.

Best Sushi I have ever had

This was the best sushi I have ever had and the service was great as well.
If you are in the mood for good sushi and are in Boston, do not miss this place!

Fish on sushi is quite thin. You are certainly paying more for the rent, location and the decor than the food.

Very Average Sushi

I live in NYC but travel to Boston every week and since I am a sushi lover, I go to Douzo (I know of no other sushi place near my hotel). I like the ambience but I am afraid the sushi and maki is sooo average. Too much rice on the maki---much more rice than actual fish. To top that, the maki rolls just collapse as soon as one picks them up and dips them in soy sauce. Last night, I ordered some miso cod--which is supposed to me soft and buttery but Douzo's cod was dry and overcooked. I can order better maki and sushi from the small takeaway shop near my apartment at 1/3 of the price.
