    We had a fantastic deal on food & drink and feasted for over two hours. Every sushi option we tried was delicious (especially the volcano and slap slap rolls) and the wine complemented it perfectly. The empanadas were not very well received; perhaps Fujimar should lean more toward Asian than Latin. Otherwise, the chic decor and plush seats made for a wonderful evening overall.

    Really enjoyed our date night at Fujimar!! The sushi was excellent and while the menu is a bit pricey, every item was perfectly presented and tasted great. We really liked the club/late night atmosphere, the upscale bar area and the TV wall just added to it. There is a DJ both in the corner so I love that it transitions late at night for dancing. The menu is a funky mix of Asian and Mexican fused together. Highly recommended!

    walk through a street level hoohah bar and upstairs to the restaurant. great eclectic decor and lively bar. one wall had screens showing great sushi rolls. then the menu came and oops...it was all over. one side of the menu had a tiny assortment of sushi, the other had a crazy mix of peruvian. when we asked about ordering the great sushi rolls that were flashing on the moniters, we were told that the menu had recently changed and none of those items were available. what a dissapointment. food we did get was just ok.

    I've been to Fujimar now a total of three times and can't get enough of their Sushi. Notable dishes being the vocable roll and slap slap sushi. By far my favorite items on the menu. Evening ambiance with Huka bar outside is also a great attraction. Will definitely be recommending it to friends!

    The manager was sitting at a dining table and using it as his office when we came in, very unprofessional! We had made a reservation for upstairs but they said it was "closed" and refused to honor it so they sat me and my grandmother in the noisy downstairs party scene area! To make it even worst, the waitress had only been there 2 weeks and continually had to go ask the manager questions, therefore slowing down service and diminishing any professionalism!

    The service was poor. Our server tried to memorize our rather large order, but got it wrong. He also didn't clear plates between courses or pay us much attention. The food was "meh". Number one complaint is that if you're going to put PEANUT SAUCE on a maki, list it on the menu. It's not traditional. It's not a flavor I like. And it's quite strong. Also don't describe krab and king crab. You're not fooling anyone. The sashimi was good, but ridiculously overpriced. The menu offers very little for vegetarians, by the way. Peruvian? Japanese? Pick an identity. You're not doing either terribly well.

    Their service was attentive, informative and helped us enjoy the evening. But their food presentation was lacking. Their sushi was less than overwhelming, just average. I expected much better presentation. Noise level was high. The décor was not really inspiring. but their service saved the day as did our group's attention to the birthday celebration at our table.

    Service was fantastic - food was very good. The screens along the wall showing the sushi chef filling orders was a bit odd, and by odd, I'm glad I wasn't facing that way so I had to look at it. The bar scene was extremely vibrant- doing tequila shots vibrant. It just made for having to have a very loud conversation with the way the sound traveled. Otherwise, highly recommended.

    This was one of my favorite restaurants in the DC area, but I was very disappointed to find out many things on the Menu had changed. I went specifically for a dish that I had previously, only to find it was no longer on the Menu. Also, the sushi choices are now limited. The food was still good, service was okay, but very slow and the Waiter seemed annoyed. I am not sure if I will be going back now that the Menu has changed, but I would recommend to friends to give it a try.

    Service was great. Our waitress was attentive & answered all our food related allergies. The decor, albeit tacky, lends itself to night-life vibe. I care more about food & drinks. The dragon roll and kobe beef roll were the highlight in size & taste (nothing to write home about though), but french fries were blah and the normal rolls we had were really tiny. We ordered 2 Pisco sours to drink and they tasted like straight sweet and sour mix. One was not even filled more than half way up (this is a sign of a bartender not knowing how to measure/mix the drinks). We sent those back and settled on wine. Our counter parts was hoping at a Japanese/Sushi restaurant they could get a Japanese beer. Nope, they don't even carry any! You can do better.

    There were many things I liked about this restaurant -- the food exceeded my expectations; the decor was sleek and modern but still had personality; you can watch the chefs prepare your sushi; and the house red wine was remarkably delicious. But I came here with an old friend, and we wanted to talk a while. We started dining at 7.45, and at 9.30, our waitress came over, corked our bottle of wine, and put it in a to-go bag for us, all on her own initiative. I could understand this aggressive let's-make-clear-this-table-has-overstayed-its-welcome approach if the restaurant was full, but almost every table was open. The restaurant definitely made the evening memorable for us -- but probably not in the way it hoped to.

    We went to the restaurant to try the sushi, and, while the hand rolls were good, we found the rolls overseasoned with sauces to the point that they really overpowered the fish. They didn't taste bad, they were just not to my taste. There are some nice cocktails on the menu and a pricey wine list. Perhaps for things other than sushi, this would be more of a hit.

    We eat at sushi restaurant several times a month and this was our worst food experience. The restaurant claims it has a Latino flair with a busy bar scene on the first floor. My wife's churashi came with 3 pieces of sea urchin - which is an acquired taste that she doesn't like. She orders churashi all the time and only once was she asked if she likes Uni. I ordered spicy tuna hand roll and was presented one that had white ingredients - crab. I questioned the waitress if it was white tuna and her initial response was yes, but she left to ask the chef. She returned and told me they are preparing another roll and that the wrong one was "lost in translation on the assembly line ". I can't make this stuff up. Lastly, out of 300ml Saki. Really??

    We booked a dinner reservation here last night when staying in the city and craving some sushi. My husband loves it, and I prefer the hot dishes so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the interesting menu. What a great asian fusion restaurant. The couple next to us used a groupon, which seemed to be a good deal as well. Will go back here next time in DC!

    Before we even came to DC, I already looked at the website to see if the menu is good for the whole family. When we arrived to the site we can't find the restaurant right away. It was upstairs from a bar called Lima. The place was romantically lit and the hostess was putting together a table that nobody was there for yet. No greetings to us after 5 mins of waiting. We had to approach and ask the bar tender where the hostess was. As we look at the menu, it was different from the website menu. The kids didn't find the entrees and appetizers they wanted. They ended up ordering something else and it was ok. If you want quality and really good sushi-- this is not the place. Although the beef short ribs with sweet ponzu sauce was amazing!

    I have loved Lima/Fujimar for some time. However, this was my first time at Fujimar since they starting specializing in sushi. I went to celebrate and congratulate a friend on her new employment and we tried a few of the speciality, decadent suishi dishes. Everything was delicious. I also tried the red sangria, which was absolutely wonderful (it sneaks up on you). It was probably one of the best red sangria's I've had at a DC restaurant. Overally, it was a good dinning experience. I will try it for lunch in the near future.

    I used to eat at Fujimara before and I even had my favorite cocktails on the menu. When I went this time, the menu had totally changed, my cocktail not on there anymore, and the quality of the sushi has become mediocre. The hostess was really really bad at what she does. She couldn't find our reservation and accused us of not having one because she happened to be looking at the wrong date. And au lien of apology, she said someone changed her calendar. I am not sure why anyone will not train their staff the basics of their job. Needless to say this is the last time I will visit this place. Our waitress, whose name i don't remember, was exceptional!

    Love this place! One of my favorite spots to dining, drink and party at in DC. If you love a vibrant bar scene, this is a great place to visit anytime. If you love an awesome party scene with a sexy crowd - this is a must visit on Friday and Saturday evenings. If you are looking for a great date night spot, I highly recommend coming here. I have been here 4 times and dined twice, all in all an absolutely fantastic place to visit.

    Being from out of town, I felt lucky to land a reservation through OT for a Monday night at this DC restaurant. On arrival, we are informed that Fujimar is closed on Monday (c'mon Open Table!) and you must dine in the downstairs bar, Luna. We are assured that the menu is the same. Not. But the service is lacking, the bar is loud such that the waitstaff took a couple tries to get our order right. Honestly, the kitchen is not the A-team on a Monday. Was not the menu from the website, was not the meal we expected. With the exception of the fried rice, the food was a small step above a food court. Fujimar should not be allowed to advertise on OT that it is open on Monday. It is not. The bar is open, and the menu is different.

    my group and I had a great time! i love lima for brunch and wanted to share with my friends that recently moved to dc. my only recommendation would be to let guest of when things (i.e. bottomless mimosas at 4pm) beforehand. we would've booked our reservation earlier than 3pm if we were privy while making the reservation. Service was great and was very efficient with our needs. will be back in the future!

    My wife and I enjoyed the ambiance at Fujimar. The food (once we finally got it) was good. The place has a modern, hip, city vibe but the service was terrible! We had a 8:30pm reservation and were seated at 9:45pm and served our food at 11:00pm. It was Valentines day so I expected some delay but this was a bit out of hand. The staff was conscious of the problem and made amends so I will go back and try them on a normal night. There is a fun, small night club located on the lower level.
