Love Kaz Sushi Bistro!! This was our second visit and it never disappoints. Great menu selections for hot & cold and if you are not 100% comfortable with your sushi knowledge, they offer a really approachable "chefs menu" style groupings that have built in variety with minimal risk. The specials were on point - the black cod was delicious and the bbq eel was perfectly seasoned. Don't miss out on the Brussel sprouts either!!! The service is attentive without overbearing. Quick but not so much that you think they are just waiting to turn the table. Even with a birthday party of 6 beside us and a busy Saturday night, we were able to easily chat and carry a conversation at normal levels. Definitely our "go to" for sushi in DC.

My daughter and I had a perfect evening at Kaz Sushi Bistro. It was the last night of our 4 night getaway, and I couldn't have picked a better spot. Our waiter was polite, professional and fun. Just terrific! Lisa & Mandy

Food was wonderful! Would definitely have zero reservations about recommending this place if all you wanted was great sushi. Ambiance was disappointing as we were out celebrating a friend, and wanted more than an office-like atmosphere. Had we done more research, we would also have discovered that they did not have a liquor license, so we could not get our favorite cocktails. I'd definitely visit again for lunch and dinner-when ambiance and cocktails are a non-issue.

I have been coming to Kaz Sushi Bistro for 10 years and my husband has been following Kaz for the last 20 years when he started with Sushi Ko. We LOVE his sushi and it is hands down our go to sushi place if you want an outstanding meal. Best tasting sushi and ALWAYS THE FRESHEST too. I’ll be coming to Kaz for as long as he makes sushi. Thank you so much for a wonderful meal.

Food was delicious. But portions smaller than expected given price point. If Katz moderated its pricing a little or added a few more pieces to its sampler, this would be a clear 5.

First time dining here and have to say it was incredible. We had the scallop ceviche which was a great pallet starter; really nice balance of flavors. I had the chefs tasting menu, my favorite of which was the seared salmon belly, which was phenomenal. Also noteworthy are the obvious O-toro and the grilled baby octopus. Just an overall great restaurant.

They set my boyfriend and I’s (first of many) omakase experience standards to an untouchable level. The quality of the fish was great. The chef created a melody of flavors that was unforgettable. The price was understandable and worth it for the quality given. On top of everything, the staff was super kind and attentive. We will definitely return.

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.

Came here on a first date during restaurant week. Came back two and half years later for the set menu for Valentines. The set menus are always great and the ambiance is wonderful for a romantic date night. I definitely plan to come back for another date so we can try things from the full menu. 10/10

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.
