Horrible experience. Planned a lovely Valentine’s date that was ruined by too close tables, slow service, and low quality food. Napkins were dirty when we sat down. Sad because we were excited to try this location. Would not recommend.

Valentines Day dinner. Very nice ambiance, calm vibe and cozy. Able to have a nice intimate dinner with my wife.

They had a preset menu, which was a 5 or 6-course meal, and apart from the 3rd entree with Scallops, everything was excellent. I’d say for a quick Valentines Day date night, it was all you would want without having to go overboard with accolades, and well worth it. I also just love Kaz, the ambiance is always very chill, service is good, and the food is really good.

Still one of my favorite sushi places in DC. It's not an every-day place with the price tag, but when you want very, very good seafood, clever presentations and flavor combinations in a laid-back setting, Kaz is absolutely a good place to go.

I find that I must restrain myself from, and show decorum by not, ordering three orders of Kaz’s New Zealand green mussels dish all at once. I generally succeed by limiting myself to two orders - that is, a total of eight large delicious mussels that simply not enough! I met a friend there on Thursday night, whom I hadn’t seen in years. Naturally, I ordered the NZ green mussels thinking I would have all four to myself. My friend helped herself to one. Mid-sentence, as she inhaled the exquisite flavor, all she could utter was “Oh, oh! OMG!” and was quiet for 30 seconds while I sadly absorbed the fact that I had been deprived of a quarter of my treasure. Oh well. I love this place. Besides the NZ green mussels, the rest of the food is absolutely delicious and well worth many visits.

Two of us arrived at 5:45 when the dining room was mostly empty. We promptly ordered our sushi and sashimi, but it took almost 30 minutes to get our food. By that time the dining room was filling up and our waiter was very busy. After 20 minutes of waiting, I asked our waiter when we could expect our food, and the waiter briskly told me our food would be right out. It came out 10 minutes later. I don't normally write reviews, but the second person I was with was my 7 year old son who patiently waited even though he was very hungry. We had to quickly eat our sushi, not something I was thrilled about since I spent $75 on it, in order to catch our bus to get home. An hour at a sushi restaurant from 5:45 to 6:45 should have been more than enough time to have a pleasant meal. Apparently here that isn't the case.

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.
