About the Menu -
Like Japan, Peru has a millennia-old history. They are two great, ancient civilizations with two major culinary traditions. These traditions complemented one another, and neither of the two sides absorbed the other to the point where one disappeared. SusherÍa menu is the result of this great union and the experience/vision of Mauricio Fraga-Rosenfeld and his dedicated culinary team lead by Peruvian Executive Chef Javier Angeles-Beron.

About the experience -
Susheria is a unique casual-glam restaurant concept where you will enjoy Izakaya, a Japanese style of service. The Japanese version of tapas, dishes will be served when ready. Izayaka is a perfect moment to enjoy life, laughter and great conversations while sharing food and drinks.

Susheria is amazing. The food is delicious and different from so many other fusion restaurants. Their cocktails are also scrumptious. You get a good amount of food for the cost. It’s a great first date or ladies night spot. It’s conveniently located in Georgetown right near an AMC theater.

2/3s of the doors orders was incorrect. Waited 40 minutes before food ever was served. Order was 3 simple sushi rolls. Items are 10%-20% more than they would be elsewhere in the city. The waitress told us lies about what we ordered and how we when we disputed what we were ordered.

Will never go here again. I was told that my group could not have an available outdoor table despite me calling earlier in the day to make sure outdoor dining was available (because of Covid precautions) both the host and the manager spoke so rudely and told us if we couldn't sit inside, we would have to come back in 25 minutes. Again, there was a table outside that was open but we were told we could not be seated there because it's saved for groups with dogs. When we returned 25 minutes later, we were seated at the same available table we had been told we could not have. The waitress was so rude the entire time, the food was slow (2 hours for sushi rolls) and tasted okay but certainly too small portions for the price. When we got the check the waitress refused to split the bill for three guests and had already included a 20% service charge but left room for additional recommended tips. This 20% charge was not listed anywhere on the menu or website and the service was certainly not worth 20%. Never go here unless you want to be treated with disdain and mediocre food. Better off getting grocery store sushi and throwing $50 in the Potomac. At least that way you wouldn't be sitting under a highway and would actually have nice views.

Absolutely awful service. And they had the nerve to have automatic gratuity of 25% when it took 30 minutes to even order food and even longer to get the check. Would not recommend. Drinks and food were average, not worth the price.

Good meal the other night in a quiet corner of the restaurant. Good social distancing, felt safe. Fish was very fresh, excellent quality. Kitchen and bar were a little slow, but I think they were a little short staffed. But would go back again for sure.

Everything was amazing! The fresco roll and ceviche was some of the best I ever had! The flavors were so prominent and delicious! I will definitely be back for both! My family also enjoyed their meals as well. They had the lomo saltodo, teriyaki chicken and chile honey chicken. The waitress also gave us excellent customer service! Glad to see they were really keeping their restaurant clean and spacing us apart. However, they do need to tidy their bathroom a bit more as they didn't look like they were part of the restaurant meaning they looked like they belonged in a chain restaurant, very gross.

Ceviche was excellent, if a bit too spicy for my friend. The wraps in seaweed are a nice innovation, kind of like a giant sushi. I would return.

I've never been a big fan of sushi, but Susheria had the BEST spicy tuna roll. It was the perfect size, perfectly spiced and melted in your mouth. Their happy hour deals are a great value and their options vary. Everything I ordered was delicious, cooked to perfection and served hot. I highly recommend.

The service was very disorganized. The cocktails were average (I tried 3 hoping to land on something that was memorable). I had hoped for better food based on the price point. Pretty standard sushi spot if not overpriced.

“Hey, is the salmon coming?”
“Yes”
“Hey, is the salmon still coming?”
“Blank stare”
“Do you remember the salmon?”
“I remember you ordered salmon but you never picked one”
“Salmon sushi....”
“Which salmon sushi?”
“There is only one”

Then they charged us for a different bill than they presented us with. An extra $40.

I would recommend Susheria for its sheer ambiance and the uniqueness of its menu. The food portions were relatively small and not anything too amazing, their sushi menu was severely underwhelming.

We came for Valentine’s Day dinner. Overall our experience was good. Our server was very nice and did a great job making sure we were good. The overall ambiance was trendy and the music was good, albeit a little loud. The only weird part of the night was the hostess walked around and took video, with flash, every 10 minutes or so. That was a little awkward. But overall a good time. Be sure to get the tempura asparagus!

The staff was incredible dismissive and rude. Our desert came when we were only about halfway through our entree and the staff attempted to rush us the entire time. Further, the food was wildly overpriced considering the relatively underwhelming quality of the food.
