Hojoko is one of the best restaurants i have had the pleasure to eat in. There is not enough good things i can say. The staff, the service and the food was top notch. Their fried chicken, chicken wings, ramen, dumplings and sushi are a must. We will definitely will be returning.

First time at Hojoko since they reopened and it was great. We sat inside by the windows, it was very comfortable. Sam was very attentive and personable, asked about allergies first then described every dish in detail (knows her stuff). Everything was a great presentation and tasted great- there wasn’t a thing the 4 of us didn’t like and we all plan to be back again soon

We sat out on the spacious patio in mid-October and the weather was great. We split ramen as a main and ordered a hunch of small plates to share. Everything was great. The service was perfect. This is the best spot in Fenway

As always- one of the best places for a night out! Excellent food, killer drinks and phenomenal staff...it doesn’t get much better! Also- they’re taking Covid seriously, temp checks for all, superior air flow. They have thought of it all!

I love hojoko! It’s one of my favorite spots in the city ! The cheeseburger is amazing and the fries are amazing! The mushroom tempura roll is one of my all time favs and I’ve ordered it more than once in a sitting. The funky chicken ramen is also great!

Great dinner at Hojoko on their first night open in a while (due to COVID). They had a safe set up (outdoor tables, masks for all staff members, virtual menus) and the food was delicious. I had the mushroom tempura sushi roll, which is out of this world, and the chicken sandwich, which was also very delicious. The 5678 cocktail is one of my all-time favorites, and the Saturn is up there too. Highly recommend!

Small menu with very limited variety, sushi was brought out about 20 to 30 mins before i got my burger, small portions (didn't order small plates) waitress was slow. Just not worth the money.

My husband and I love Hojoko, we go for a fun date night because we love the fun, funky drink choices and the playful menu options. The shiitake mushroom roll with truffle foam is a must have, and their Hojoko burger or tuna burger are some of our favorites too. When we go with friends, we love to introduce them to Hojoko by ordering the wasabi roulette! It’s a great ice breaker!

I’ve always loved Hojoko, and the food is so delicious, but we had a few issues with the service. First, we put in a drinks order that never got to us and was filled incorrectly. Second, we’d ordered the shitake mushroom tempura roll, and it never got to us - when we asked the waiter he said that they’d run out of it but had forgotten to tell us for 45 minutes. Overall, still a great dining experience and amazing food, but the service could be better.

One of my favorite recent dining experiences in Boston!! The food was incredible highly recommend the brussel sprouts. They were a game changer. The tuna burger is also otherworldly. All the cocktails were fantastic as well even altering if they ran out of an ingredient to a wonderful drink. Service was a little slow but I wasn't in a rush so will for sure be back

I've been going to Hojoko since they first opened. The menu is always changing but they always keep their classics. The Shitake Mushroom Tempura is one of the best things I've ever eaten. You would never think to order a burger at Hojoko, but the burger is phenomenal.

Hojoko always seems to add / remove the items that we really enjoy with some regularity. One this evening we were hoping to get the uni toast, wagyu skirt steak, eggplant and wagyu meatballs. We got some other dishes which were good but not the greatest. Terrific service and fun vibe. I’ll come back when they improve the menu

Had a great meal at Hojoko with a friend - great spot to meet after work. The restaurant has cool vibe and ambiance. The cocktail list had a good variety. The Raba Raba was AMAZING - refreshing and light. The food was delicious - my friend had the fried chicken sandwich. I had the Funky Chicken Ramen with the spicy relish on the side. The ramen noodles, chicken and toppings were great! The broth was flavorful, just a little salty. The relish is VERY spicy, but a good add-on. Happy that comes on the side. Would definitely recommend this place!

Note that everything comes in small portions, even the sandwiches and bowls are not that large. The spicy tuna burger and okonomiyake were my fav. The yakisoba is Def not worth it. Nyc>tko cocktail was basically a good quality whiskey sour, but not very memorable. If you're looking for yummy food in a casual setting and willing to pay a bit, I would Def check it out.
