A word from Sushi Ko - Glover Park
The Sushi Ko food philosophy is Cuisine of Subtraction. According to Creative Director Daisuke Utagawa, subtraction allows chefs to reveal the essence of each ingredient in it's most honest yet refined state. By subtly combining other ingredients, a taste sensation is created that demonstrates the complexity and beauty of nature for the eye and the palate.

Sushi Ko - Glover Park reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Sushi Ko=Ok Sushi
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 6/15/2013
    I had high expectations for Sushi Ko, based on the opinions of a handful of friends. The food and service was good but not quite as mind-blowingly delicious as I had hoped. I wouldn't say I was necessarily disappoined, just not overly impressed.

    The best sushi ever! Very fresh and a wonderful combination of flavors. Loved the seaweed salad and the crunchy spicy tuna roll. Can't wait to go back! The waitress we had was exceptional -- very patient with our ordering and extremely helpful in recommending different dishes.

    Love sushi-ko!! Although, this visit they incorrectly charged us, so trying to resolve it now. The sushi is excellent and normally we have no issues.

    Yum! Sushi/Sashimi here is always delectable. The sauces are particularly good, making their seaweed salad and grilled scallops particularly good. Service is efficient. I've always found the decor, particularly after a makeover to be a bit cold but that's a matter of opinion. Choices regarding desserts are usually limited but I love their ice creams. It's expensive but the food is of great quality.

    We live in the neighborhood but don't seem to get to Sushi Ko very often. Having a coupon got us there last weekend. Everything we ordered was delicious as always and we had great service. Super tender tenderloin on skewer. Great vegetable tempura. When we remembered a selection of all 3 ice creams as a dessert offering in the past that we'd enjoyed, our server accomodated us with our choice of 3 for a less than per scoop price.

  • mothers day bummer

    Dined on 5/12/2013
    Went there Mother's Day 2013. Took 45 minutes from when we sat down to get any food- even after we ordered additional appetizers. Server seemed pretty oblivious and over-wrought. Wasabi on kids sushi and rolls. (would have been nice to be asked...) Kitchen was out of 2 items we ordered, we eventually found out from server. Admittedly, it was somewhat busy, but not that crazy. Maybe the waitress was new. But ultimately, if you have tables in your restaurant, you need to be able to get food to them in a timely manner. $140 dinner for family of , and would have been better off getting sushi from whole foods next door. Its a bummer, cause we are longtime fans of the restaurant, in both its locations. But on this occasion, fail!

  • Best Sushi in DC
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 3/2/2013
    This is my favorite sushi spot in DC and has never let me down. The chefs are amazing and talented, and are quick to give you a smile and educate you on what they are making when sitting at the sushi bar. I tried the tuna sushimi platter to mix things up, and it was AMAZING! I usually get the spicy crunchy tuna rolls which are equally as good. Authentic soups are delicious as well and the portions are perfect. Edamame is always steamed perfectly and super-fresh, with just the right amount of sea salt sprinkled for taste. Note, most dishes are topped with a healthy serving of roe, so be sure to ask to have it removed if you are not a fan. It is only open for dinner and its best to make a reservation to ensure you are seated.

    The food was nothing special. The grilled octupas was too sweet and the sashimi/sushi were not especially fresh. Also they've sold out of the fatty tuna (it took them 30 minutes to inform us). The food took a long time to arrive. Overall, it was not a good experience for us.

    The sushi was terrific, specifically the tuna sashimi. Also had the beef tenderloin tataki and that was a steak to remember. Service was good just like you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Overall a great experience definitely would go again. Very good food for the price.

    The only problem with Sushi Ko is the ambiance. The space looks old and a bit run down. But that's it! The quality of the food and service more than make up for it.

    Whoa, they were out of Sapporo beer before we were seated at 7:30 p.m. on a Friday night! But the food was fantastic as always. Grilled octopus is a wonderful starter, and we continue to favor the eel rolls. But this time we tried the crunchy spicy salmon roll, and ended up ordering a second one.

    Sushi Ko is a great neighborhood spot but every time I make a reservation there is still a wait....It is very frustrating when you have guests in town and we are forced to crowd in the tiny entrance of Sushi Ko for 1/2 an hour before our table is ready.

    The food at Sushi Ko - Glover Park is always great. Standouts this time were the salmon ceviche, sashimi assortment, and espresso panna cotta. It still has that hole-in-the-wall feel, though, that makes an evening there feel just a bit less like a treat than it would in a more inviting setting.
