Friendly place with a good selection, though it is possibly quite a small restaurant. Took advantage of the Restaurant Week special menu. We loved all the food we tried. The seared tuna starter tasted beautiful. Also big fans of the tempura cheesecake. Tried the Lychee Saketini and that was a very good choice.

I’ve been dining here for years and love the food at Matsuri. I made a reservation since “back in the day” it would have been difficult to get a table at lunch time. I indicated that we would be celebrating a birthday. We arrived and got our table. For the entire hour and a half that we were there, no other patrons dined in. Two waitresses were in the small dining room yet we had to repeatedly ask for things - water, tea, part of our order, another take out box (the one was too small). Neither of the employees wished my friend a happy birthday when it was obvious that was why we were there (I brought gifts). Overall experience was quite disappointing. Not sure I will be going back.

The food here was delicious and Matsuri's specialty rolls were amazing. The Black Pepper Tuna is a must! If you're going as a large group, I would recommend again family style ordering, as the bill adds up quickly!

Had a group of 8 out for dinner night out. We did not realize it was a Ravens Game, so parking was challenging. Eventually found a spot on the street about a block away. Building is not a lot to look at, but we had a table for ten upstairs. The sushi was good and fresh with lot's of options. The only alcohol they serve is Saki and Beer. Overall good sushi, average ambiance, bad parking and reasonable price.

We love Matsuri and come here often. I am not a sushi eater although my husband loves it and there are wonderful selections for both of us.I particularly think their negimaki and pork Tonkatsu. The service is excellent and the owner is very hospitable and helpful. The ambiance feels more authentically Japanese to us than some of the other Japanese restaurants in Baltimore.

All the fish was excellent. Especially the Toro. Correct temperature, fresh, great flavor.
