Fugakyu Japanese Cuisine Lynnfield Ratings and Reviews
Food was excellent as always but the maitre d' was rude and seemed to be overwhelmed with multiple parties arriving at the same time. Open tables were within site for 30+ minutes while guests were waiting. It was an unnecessarily negative start to the evening.
Food and service were wonderful. We were seated in a booth with doors that close. A little claustrophobic and the seat cushions were not comfortable. The cushions are individual on a bench with space between each cushion. They slid. Would have preferred a table. Next time!
Overall a bad experience at a restaurant that started with great food. Do not order shrimp grilled as teriyaki or any other way. They over cook it to dry rubber. The spicy salmon maki, which is usually great, was more crumb than salmon. Our waiter was nice but was way too busy to even ask about the food.
Was really surprised by the quality of the food! Great atmosphere and super fresh fish for the area. Some of the better sushi I have eaten in Boston, which I did not expect from a mall-type locale. We only had a few basic rolls, but they were all quite good, with crisp seaweed.
Hi - My boyfriend and I have been to the Fugakyu in Lynnfield 3 times now and it just doesn't live up to the standard of the one in Brookline. We went for a date night and sushi is our favorite date night food. We love getting apps and mai tais then a few rolls. It always feels like we are being rushed and no one checks in on us between dropping off drink or food. We were hoping to enjoy our time and have a few drinks before eating our meal but by the time everything was done we hadn't even finished our second drink. It just seems impersonal and too quick for the price. I also think there are not as many specialty roll options. I think that will be our last time there. Just not friendly and fun like Brookline.
Great food, great staff. I have gone to the Brookline restaurant for years and this location is a great addition. The green tea crepe cake is to die for. I had the Chicken Katsu and i highly recommend it. We get the little room with doors and its private and great for 4 to 5 people.
We ordered a vegetable and chicken dish (don't recall name on menu) that tasted good, but was mostly vegetables and not much chicken. Also one of our drinks came filled slightly more than half full. After asking the server, she said that's how it comes. Considering that mixed drinks are averaging $ 10.00 each, I don't think that is right.
The food was just average , which was surprising since we have enjoyed the Brookline location in the past. Not worth the high prices they are paying for what now feels like a chain restaurant and all that that implies. Kudos to our server however who kept the Sapporos coming and was very friendly and engaging - really saved the birthday dinner actually.
I have gone to Fugakyu in Brookline for many years. About 12 years ago I moved to San Diego so the frequency of visits decreased. I always favored Hiro-san who is a genki Hawaiin and master sushi chef. I would always tell him to just make what he wants (a Hiro moriawase); I was never disappointed.
I was on a business trip last week and invited my daughter to join for dinner at the Lynnfield location. I was a bit nervous because Hiro-san didn't work there (he had btw moved back to Hawaii). However, we were sitting at the sushi bar and all of the chef's had been taught by Hiro-san and was their mentor. I must admit they learned well and we had high quality fish.
The only disappointment that I had was that they did not have uni, which is my favorite. Maybe next time.
If you like Japanese food (especially sushi/sashimi) prepared in the traditional way, I highly recommend Fugakyu in Lynnfield.
The service was superb.
The food was only mediocre and the price was high.
There were 2 of us and we had one glass of wine and we split 1 app 1 roll and 1 steamed vegetable plate and our bill before tip was close to $90.00
Very remarkable was that we paid $20.00 for a roll that was not impressive with flavor or presentation unless you think a huge shrimp head is.
The Japanese food, at Mandarin, is superior to here and we are not new to Japanese cuisine.
I was very disappointed with the meal, the waiter way annoying, he came over every 5 minutes to try and take our order when we did not even have a chance to look at it.
The cocktail I got was terrible it tasted like an crystal light drink with no taste of alcohol and not taste of mango.
I got a stomach ache from the food or drink not sure, overall this was nothing like the one in brookline. It has no customers and the atmosphere is cold.
Great for sushi but don't get anything else. I got steak Teriyaki and it was horrible. I should have sent it back but service was so horribly slow I didn't want to waste my time. There was no one in the restaurant on a Saturday night so service shouldn't have been so bad but the waitress was no where to be found and was really really terrible.
The food here was great; I've been to the FuGakyu in Brookline and it was fantastic. There were some things, however, that were a little disappointing.
Let me just first say, the environment was great. We arrived before the rush during the weekend, so the atmosphere was quiet. My friend and I used one of the booths that closes - great touch! The individual who seated us was fine, very friendly. I'm not one to judge, or to hold grudges, though I felt our waiter was having an off day. He did not seem at all excited, gave us our menus and left. We thought little of it. A little while later he returned, took our order with an aloofness and little excitement, and mumbled enough that I couldn't figure out if he was agreeing with me or asking me to specify what I wanted. His overall behavior was odd enough that my friend and I picked up on it and glanced over at each other. Fast forward to the appetizer - it was good, we ordered the vegetable kushi-katsu. I was a bit disappointed it was *only* fried zucchini, as other places have garnished it with onions or other vegetables. Before we were finished eating, our waiter came back and took the plate away while refilling our water. We didn't notice as it was happening, but it was disappointing as there was little reason to finish eating the appetizer without the sauce!
The entrees were excellent, though we felt the sushi could have had more presentation (for this being a pricier restaurant). The waiter checked on us twice in 15 minutes, so it was a little disruptive, but still a nice dinner. It took a little while for us to get some attention to process our check and to get our check, and the waiter initially forgot my food that I requested to take home (a simple mistake I suppose).
Overall, decent experience, but I do tie enthusiasm of the staff and presentation of the food into the price of an expensive restaurant. I'll probably eat here again, I just hope the servers are as excited to be there as I am. =)
We were there at 5 pm so the service was fine. I emailed ahead since I have a gluten sensitivity and was told I would have options. When I arrived I actually had very few options. I stuck with some basic sushi. My husband ordered a steak medium and it came medium well and wasn't really a good cut of steak - gristle - hard to cut. The prices are high for the value. I'd rather eat at Oyes in Reading or Sakura in Wakefield.
Although we were seated promptly everything else went downhill from there. Upon being seated we placed our drink order. Approximately 45 minutes later our drinks arrived. The server apologized but to wait that long was ridiculous. From there, when entrees were brought out, one in our party had to wait ten minutes before their entree arrived. After entrees were all brought received, we realized that server never brought the soups that came with our meals. Once again the server apologized and brought them out but come on!! Prices are not reflective of either quality of food or service. I did complain to manager when we were leaving and had the feeling I wasn't the only one who had done so. I also ran into a friend who was also having dinner there and they were not pleased wit their experience either. I will not be returning.
