Douzo Modern Japanese Restaurant

When diners enter this stylish restaurant in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay – steps away from the South End & Theater District – they are immediately enveloped in earth tones, rich dark wood and the airiness of high ceilings reverberating with the energy and excitement of the space. The lively bar area is a popular gathering spot offering a selection of cocktails, sake, wine and beer. Guests look on as the team of chefs create cutting-edge sushi dishes, or they settle into an experience of award-winning cuisine in the main dining area. From the knowledgeable and attentive waitstaff to charismatic owner Jack Huang’s pleasure at meeting diners, expect the comfort of being warmly welcomed at Douzo. Like the atmosphere, Douzo’s healthy and fresh cuisine seamlessly combines warm tradition and modern innovation of Japanese classics. Douzo offers inventive dishes that make the restaurant both a neighborhood fixture and a critically acclaimed destination, signature items.

"Good sushi, fun selection of maki rolls. Didn't try the nigiri as some in our party preferred special rolls. Ordered the green tea fried ice cream and chocolate cake as well, these were not good, would not recommend dessert here. The ice cream was too hard and not particularly flavorful. The chocolate cake was dry and somewhat still frozen (we had an 11:30 reservation)"

"It's on the pricier side for sushi in the area, but the pieces are thicker and taster fresher than other places."

"This was my second time going to Douzo and it has become a family tradition whenever they come into Boston to visit. This place has got to be my favorite spot to sit and eat a meal in Boston, if not anywhere. The decorations are elegant and clean, sticking with the tradition behind where the food comes from. My and my father are sushi snobs and prior to moving to Boston, , the best sushi I had ever had was in Westport, CT. Douzo topped it and there was no comparison. It seems as if the fish jumped straight out of the ocean into the kitchen and then onto my plate. I cannot speak to any of the other food, but I cannot imagine how is it anything less than fantastic. But for me, there is only one choice and that is raw fish. No rice or anything, just fish! I cannot wait to go back."

"I read the reviews for Douzo on Open Table thinking it was a slam dunk but, in reality, it fell short of my expectations. The primary reason was that while the sushi was good, it was not great compared to other sushi restaurants I've been to in the past, and I did not think the pricing reflected a good value. While I gave it four stars for food, I would not put it above a 4.0. Having said that, if you do go you must get the Black Cod appetizer, which was outstanding and PERFECTLY cooked (meaning 'barely')...the best I've had outside of Vancouver BC or Alaska. And, again, the sushi was good, just not 'great.'
Service was quite good, whether it was our waitress, a very accommodating and professional bartender, or a server who helped out. Everyone was top-notch.
Again, Douzo is solidly good -- you won't have a bad or even a mediocre meal -- I was just expecting more, and perhaps that was my fault."

"Excellent food. Attentive service. Not ideal for couples/privacy. 2-person tables are too close to all tables."
