I love sashimi, good wine, late nights and the ability to have a quiet conversation while consuming the first two. Seiyo has it all. Superb fresh fish, one of the best sushi-matching wine lists in Boston, artistic decor, great service and open after symphony. This...More

Nice little sushi and other Japanese food! The place has a nice vibe, sort of dark and cozy! Red dragon roll is killer!

It's a pretty good trendy sushi spot -- the wine list is great and the service is always A+! My favourite thing about Seiyo is that you can buy alcohol there and the owner (i'm assuming) is SO SO knowledgable and super nice. He's dissuaded...More

We enjoyed the great selection of sushi. The server was also extremely attentive. Great tasting sushi - try the spider maki - this was my favourite! We liked it so much that we went back a few days later to get a takeout!

Low-key, but still trendy, sushi place in the South End. Chill atmosphere, very friendly service, cool seats by the windows. Recommend the Sushi-Sashimi Combo, but check out the specials too. Having a wine bar next door doesn't hurt either. A creative place!

Usually go with a Bento Box for lunch. Of course the wine list is great & you can purchase wine & spirits in the adjacent wine salon or "cellar." Seiyo is a great place for sushi & a light wine on a romantic date!!

I probably eat here atleast 3-4 times a month. The maki rolls - caterpillar, crazy maki and many others are just great. The special list of maki and sushi is must try!

The sushi is good... nothing to complain about (though it's no "Douzo"!) It's solid (and they have a few more interesting rolls to offer than your average, middling sushi spot). It's connected to a fun wine store and makes for a convenient Friday evening, after-work...More

I love sushi.This place is a neighborhood gem that is cozy, unpretentious but serves great food. I had two rolls that I never before had and three single pieces and everything was fresh and delicious. I sat at the bar and asked the chefs what...More
