The Zagat Review
Ken Oringer offers a "magical" experience at the Back Bay's Eliot Hotel, crafting “curated, thoughtful” omakase menus and “crazy innovative” dishes with “flow and story” , including Asian street food inspired by Shanghai, Bangladesh and beyond; expanding into the former Clio space upstairs, the sexy bi-level digs boast bars for sashimi, sushi and cocktails, wood accents and tattoo-inspired art, and remain staffed by servers who are “more than knowledgeable” (especially when making suggestions from the “wonderful” sake list).

Decided to try Uni when I couldn't get reservations at O Ya. I was not disappointed. Went there with my dear friend, but would also be an excellent first date choice. Nice relaxed vibe and attentive staff. Our waiter was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I enjoyed the sushi especially the spicy tuna roll. We shared a couple of deserts from the desert menu which were light and delicious. Unfortunately no cappuccino maker which would have paired well with the deserts. I am not a big drinker so I can't comment on their extensive alcohol selection. My glass of Chardonnay hit the mark. Would definitely recommend.

Great spot, esp the lobster. I love this hotel, it's old school and wonderful, but this doesn't seem like one of those generic "hotel restaurants" and I mean that as a high compliment. It def stands alone.

I was expecting the ramen to be phenomenal but it was incredibly underwhelming. I ordered the pork miso ramen. For $16, you get a bowl of noodles, a large slab of bland pork and a few garnishes (some grated ginger and nori). For an extra $1, you could add an egg. The only problem I have with the ramen was the salty broth. It made eating the noodles difficult since the noodles soaked the heavy sauce. The service was okay. Servers were attentive. Located in a beautiful hotel. The decor was definitely very fancy but the music was quite loud.
