After years of being told, "you need to go to o ya," I finally made a reservation and headed over to sit at the Chef's bar with my son, another sushi enthusiast and foodie. Our meal was superb from start to finish. We had o ya's Grand Omakase so we could experience the full range of the restaurant's food, and we weren't disappointed for a single bite. We opted to order our own sake rather than a pairing, and for us, that really worked since we know what type of sake we really enjoy. This isn't an inexpensive adventure. In fact, there aren't many that are more expensive in Boston. But it was completely worth it.

Our menu started with a beautiful oyster with watermelon pearls, and
then moved on to creative sushi, followed by their version of sashimi, followed by cooked foods and dessert. There were 24 courses in total since they added something not on the menu in the middle, and we finished with beautiful chocolates.

I would also be remiss if I didn't mention that the service was perfection. We were attended to constantly, and we never had to guess what we were eating. Our servers were always there to make sure we were happy.

If you're on the fence about going to o ya, and you can afford the indulgence, I couldn't recommend it more.

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.

We loved it. This place is worth all the hype, and all the great reviews just don't do it justice. you need to experience the superb food and service for yourself. There is just no way to explain how amazing Kate and Michael are. The service was outstanding, the level of care was amazing, and we cannot wait to come back. December 14th cant come soon enough.

WOW! This is a total and complete party in your mouth. Out wait person was very good and we asked for her recommendation and ordered everything that she recommended as well as added more to it. There was not one thing that was not melt in your mouth amazing. We go to Boston every year to teach and make sure that we go to O ya and have never been disappointed. It is ahhhhhmaaaazing!! GO!!!
