Highly recommend! Kaz is improbably a favorite for both my sushi-loving husband and my fish-averse self. They do a fabulous job on sushi, offering both classic and unusual options. And the other dishes are amazing as well - with great service.

We have come to Kaz for about six years for reliably excellent sushi, great service, and a creative menu. The sushi is as good as it gets; other spots in DC are as good but none reliably better and Kaz always has something seasonal and fresh from Japan, Hawaii, etc. Highly recommend Kaz.

First time. Had the Omakase at the bar. Excellent personal service from the chef. Well worth the trip. Will return, though probably for a less expensive entree at a table.

Usually I give Kaz's 5 stars. All the speciality dishes--foi gras, Italian truffle, trout napoleon, etc.--were outstanding as always. However, the umi shisho roll and the tuna roll were off. Also the chocolate dessert, while good, was too fruity and rich--it was too much for two people.

We had exceptional experience. This was the best sushi we have ever had. Exceptional taste of salads. pieces of fish we’re melting in mouth. The price may be a bit higher than other places, but it’s worth it. You taste and feel the quality what you are paying for. Definitely to go place. I am afraid I may not be able to eat sushi at other restaurant.

My starter was a green salad which had a soy vinegar dressing. I had a mixture of sushi and sashimi that included some of the daily specials. Although I cannot recall all of the types of fish that were included, I can say that it tasted wonderful and was just the right amount of food. The plum wine that I had to accompany my meal seemed like it was home made rather than processed and tasted very good.

Most excellent sushi. I had the sushi omakase. Very good quality sushi. Note that it will keep coming until you say you've had enough. This was different from what I was used to. It's great, just beware that the bill will keep going up until you say stop. It is so good, it is hard to say stop. Given the opportunity, I will certainly return.

This was the highlight of our trip!! By far the best sushi we've had in many years. Portions we amazing, quality was excellent, and the service was A++++. Must stop for sushi lovers... This isn't your typical American sushi place with oversized rolls with lesser quality fish. We will be back!

We had the sashimi and sushi to share
the white fish and scallops was not the freshest I have tasted. Scallops was fish not sweet and nutty.
The rest was pretty nice but still expensive for what the value is.

Incredible dishes! I especially loved the Bird's Nest (uni, calamari strips, quail egg) and incredibly fresh and diverse list of sashimi (flounder, Icelandic char, etc.) If you want bang for your buck, get a bento box. I'm a bit of an adventurous eater, so I didn't choose this option and didn't leave with a full stomach (my friends did and they were satisfied). Save room for dessert. Green tea tiramisu was fantastic.

Everything was outstanding, from the food to the decor to the service! The veggie sushi is great -- especially the roasted tomato nigiri which is delicious and quite clever because it looks like tuna. I would love to see even more veggie sushi options (for example, roasted sweet potato or avocado with honey roasted peanuts). The desserts are complex and nicely balanced; our favorites are the run raisin molten chocolate cake and the green tea tiramisu. The white breeze is a nice mocktail.

Food is reliably delicious, creative, well prepared; having dined here occasionally for 15 years. The ambiance is respectful, comfortable and sophisticated without being stuffy. Our server and host were very considerate when we notified them that cold air was blowing on our table, offering to relocate us but instead were willing to adjust the air vent direction which solved the problem.
