my fave sushi place – I have known the men @ Boss since Sushi Kokyo...the reviews below are riddiculous! and lovely spelling by the way. Any grown adult that isn't intoxicated would know better than to slander a restaurant or any other small business this way. I guess some children have nothing better to do. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone for a unique flavor experience.
The sushi is amazing, the service is complementary and i love the casual atmosphere to just enjoy with my friends and family!
MANAGER AND OWNER THREATENED TO POISIN US – I just want to touch on the below review. The story is entirely 100% correct -- when attempting to send back a dish that was undercooked, the owner notified us that he would not take it off the bill NOR would he cook it further for us. We responded that this was unfair. The owner then told us that we better "WATCH OURSELVES IF WE EVER CAME BACK TO THE RESTAURANT." The manager chimed in and noted that we were all "banned from the restaurant" and that "Beverly Hills customers SUhCK"-- all this at the end of our $300 meal.
Bottom line is our entire party of 8 people were threatened. I am not sure whether he meant he would SSPIT or URINATE in our food, if he would POISIN the food or if he and his co-workers would PHYSICALLY ATTACK us if we came back -- who knows. What i do know is either way, THREATENING TO PHYSICALLY HARM A PERSON (whether by tainting one's food or by physical contact) is an ACTIONABLE ASSAULT.
If you are into being ASSAULTED by the staff during your sushi dinner, please, stop by Boss.
The Manager Told Us That He Wanted to Poisin Us – So, basically, one person in my group was a vegetarian and ordered a vegetarian entree while the rest of us ate several hundred dollars worth of sushi. The sushi was decent - I've had a lot better in L.A. ... and in airports and at stadiums and in Kansas City and in Wal-Mart - but it was ok. The vegetarian entree was not fully cooked. Said vegetarian asked if they could cook her food or, alternately, take it off the bill. The manager told us that because he made it, we had to pay for it and he wasn't going to cook it. When we tried to explain that, actually, we would pay for it if he simply cooked it, he told us that he wanted to poisin us and that we were banned from his restaurant. Like, Joe Biden, let me repeat that for emphasis. The. Manager. Told. Us. That. He. Wanted. To. Poisin. Us. (!!!!!!) And. That. We. Were. Banned. From. His. Restaurant. He also told us that Beverly Hills customers are the worst customers. The thing is, I'm from Cleveland, Ohio...
Idiots writing reviews – I am sorry, I don't usually write reviews but I have to this time. You know...its so sad to see the comments people make on why they will not go to a restaurant. Like the ones listed below..."the smell" or "sewage problem". You idiots!!! It smelled because there was a SEWAGE PROBLEM....get over it!!!! If you have a sewage problem in your house are you gonna move out or get it fixed?
Thats exactly what they did...they got it fixed!!! and now you can go enjoy sushi there like I do. I don't have my nose up in the air, "oh I only eat at katana or koi, etc..." I eat where it is the best...Simply, its here at Boss Sushi!!! Take my word for it and order "omakase" from any of the chefs at the sushi bar. You wont regret it!!! You do not come here for the service, I will admit, but you come here for the best sushi in town and probably top 20 in the nation.
I am a frequent here when I am in town! At least 3 times a week. I make it adament that as soon as I arrive in town to go eat at Boss, if they are open!!! Come try the best sushi you can have in this fickle city! Sewage problem...Please!
Best Sushi in LA – The reason I am writing this review is because I think some clarification is needed here. As mentioned in previous reviews, Boss did have a plumbing problem. I agree that it was really dissappointing and I actually did not go back for a while. However, in the past 2 months, I've been back several several times. I actually brought my sister who lives in Manhattan and she told me this is one of the best sushi places she has been to, in Manhattan or anywhere else. The fish is always fresh and quite frankly, you can't beat the value. Lunch specials are really a steal. You get a ton of great food and fresh fish for about $12. You just don't see those prices in LA sushi places that charge you $5 just for miso soup. Boss Sushi has definitely come back and is once again my favorite sushi restaurant in LA, and I've been to just about all of them. For the price and the quality of the food, you just can't beat Boss.
Boss is this sushi snob's overall favorite sushi restaurant in the US – I've eaten numerous times at every single overhyped, overpriced sushi restaurant in major metropolitan US cities and Boss is my favorite overall. You just can't beat the Boss PP#1, Nate Blondes, or Red Snapper Ceviche. Go there, order these three things, and then ask yourself honestly if you really want to go back to spending a fortune at Matsuhisa. Sure, there are a few places like Nozawa and Asanebo that do a better job with plain and simple sashimi, but for creative dishes that still highlight the superior quality of the fish, Boss is the place to go.
This place needs to close down – I have only wrtten one review on citysearch. I only write a comment when i feel the NEED to. I will say this about BOSS sushi: DO NOT GO HERE. It smells bad, REALLY bad. The sushi is overpriced and it is gross. The spicy tuna is never fresh and tatses like its been in a freezer for 3 years. Please dont go here
My Favorite Sushi Place – Absolutely delish! The service is great. The "Boss" is extremely talented and even got me to like salmon sushi, which I've never liked anywhere else. The sauces are delicate, the sashimi a work of art, and everything is delicious. Try their sparkling sake and don't miss the umebushi soup!!!
Plumbing incident or SEWAGE leak? – This used to be my favorite Japanese place to eat lunch. However, after their sewage/plumbing incident last week, the eatery is just not how it was before. I really liked going there, but after today where they messed up my order an my coworkers orders.....NO MORE. I didn't even order anything from the sushi bar. The service is horrible and I do not recommend anyone to go there. They didn't even give our table a descent discount or comp!!!!
What goes around comes around.......
My New Favorite Sushi Spot - THE place to go for lunch meetings! – BOSS Sushi looks like an upscale sushi restaurant. The service is phenomenal and the food is even better. This is not one of those weird looking sushi joints with mismatched furniture. It's very pretty with a smokey blue motif. Have the Lunch special, you'll have more than enough to eat. Our server actually recommended we not order an additional roll on top of the lunch special because we wouldn't have room for it. Sure enough, we didn't even finish our first lunch! This is a great place for a date, business lunch or special occassion. The lunch crowd wasn't super busy and it wasn't super loud, but it was SUPER. Bon appetite!
