Good Japanese Food
I think this is the most decent Japanese restaurant in the area, yet it's not authentic. The service is fast and courteous. I ordered a few kitchen dishes and sushi.
sushi was smaller than I expected. Row fish was tasty but it could be better. Kitchen dish like Kakuni and Tsukune, they are a bit too americanized. Nevertheless I def will go back again. Because I can't get decent japanese food anywhere in DC met area.

The food was wonderful, that's what kept me go back again and again and also bring friends. However, the staff forgot to bring our miso soup, and we didn't realized until we had left.

A lovely find...fresh and beautiful sushi. The warm compote of agar,tofu,shrimp, edamame and a hint of lemon zest is sublime. Umame!
Excellent service and n overall delightful evening.
The Chef's table is great...just would expect warm towels, better chop sticks, and soft drinks/hot tea to be included.
Would also suggest oiling the beautiful chef's table so as to prevent the water marks that the diners need to contend with, and would move the coffee/hot water dispenser off of the main bar, as it is in full view and is distracting.

Japanese food a cut above
The best Japanese food I've had in Washington. Sushi was excellent, the tofu (house made) was absolutely delicious, and the dishes all had the finishing touches you expect from a high end restaurant, although anybody would be perfectly comfortable walking into Yuzu in jeans and a t-shirt. I will definitely be back and hope Yuzu is here to stay!

Yuzu may well be the best place for sushi in Montgomery Country. Each item we sampled was absolutely excellent. The chef's tempura roll was easily the best tempura I've ever had.
The waitstaff almost all speak Japanese, which surprised me. They could be a little more attentive, but they're all very pleasant and helpful.
Definitely on my repeat list!!

Review of Lunch at Yuzo
Food was excellent. Music was appropriate. Staff was very helpful and timely. Wish that the tea was served hotter, and that was in a container that could keep it warmer longer, as the pot of green tea become cold very quickly. I intend to return regularly, as the food was great, and the service matched the food. The custard dessert was excellent.

Wonderful Japanese food
Ate at Yuzu for a last-minute dinner with a friend mid-week. Made a last-minute booking through OpenTable and hopped up around 7:30. The restaurant was fairly empty, with a couple of folks at the sushi bar and 2-3 tables filled. Our server was very friendly and courteous. We started with green beans in a miso sauce - yum! Then we shared a large mixed tempura (awesome) and 3 sushi rolls, which were freshly made, delicious and perfect size. We'd read about Yuzu in Bethesda magazine as a top Japanese restaurant and we weren't disappointed at all. Of course the meal was fairly expensive (we did not have alcohol and paid over $50), but it was a nice treat. Would return again.

Must have driven past this place a million times and never noticed it. Needed a place to go after the movies and read Open Rable reviews. Sounded good, and we went. So glad we did. Sushi was exceptionally fresh. We ordered Chef's specials - soft shell crab, tuna with jalapeño. They were excellent. Also had lotus root, tempura, tofu dumpling, miso soup and other rolls. Everything was exceptionally good. And the service was unusually outstanding. Attentive and helpful without being overbearing. The decor could use some sprucing up, but the food and service were terrific.

Great food, skip the cocktails
All food was great - appetizers, soup, sushi, and dessert. Beers were also good, and a nice selection of local bottles. Cocktail was less than desirable. I will return though!

Oh, so good...
The lightly grilled yellowtail cheek was fabulous. And you simply must get the eggplant with chicken.
Yuzu also pleases by having a relatively low noise level and really nice jazz in the background. Love this place.
