I'm sad to say that Yona appears to have closed its doors. One of our favorite dinner spots in town, we're going to miss everything from the wonderful fried brussel sprouts to the incredible steamed buns with delicious fillings to tasty ramen... not to mention some terrific house cocktails. I can only hope that Yona returns under new ownership, but the same recipes. Ballston doesn't have anything even close to what Yona brought us each time we visited.
Good food, but not great for Mike Isabella. Lovely waitress, simple, modern setting. Hard to find parking!
excellent food. Always enjoy and wonder why we don't come more often.
Great venue for team luncheon. Not a large place but worked perfectly for our team of 12.
This happy hour is perhaps the best kept secret in the neighborhood- I almost don't want to share it. The HH menu is a steal- sit at the bar and watch the magic of the rolls being made. The steamed buns are amazing- you will not be disappointed! Great gem!
I love the kanikama roll. It has shrimp tempura and crab meat in it. I ordered this roll on my visit and was disappointed with the presentation. I pointed out the discrepancy with the waitress and was told the chef has freedom to show creativity. The roll was made with what was stated on the menu (3 basic ingredients of rice, shrimp, and crab meat) and no further offer to replace or change the roll was made. I ate the roll as is but wish the owner(s) would stress consistency when preparing their sushi rolls. Most days the kanikama is amazing but on this day it was dry and lacked substance.
Soups are simply delicious!
This was my second visit in two weeks. We liked it so much the first time that we decided to come back with a couple of friends and we were not disappointed. The food was still great. However, there was one thing different. The first time we ate in September we ordered Donburi with rib eye beef and it came with sliced beef which was just awesome. This time the dish looked different, more like shredded beef instead of the slices. While still delicious, the sliced version was heaps better. It looked better and seemed to taste better the first time. Other than that, everything else was great. The edamame could have used more salt. The service was also very friendly and attentive.
It was a vey disappointing dinner.
Over-priced for the quality. 3 small pieces of octopus was $10.
We love this restaurant! Every dish we taste is very delicious and different taste than other restaurants. It’s moderately priced and worth every penny.
Our serve Dragana is amazing. Each time she sees us she greets us with a big smile . When she’s there, we know we would be taken good care of. I will keep coming back due to flawless service and great food. Thank you!
Great food and service.
Exceptional appetizers (beef buns, crabs buns), and best noodle soups (curry, and pork)! Scrumptious! ThankU !
Tasty sushi with unique touches. Very nice standards as well.
We go to Yona often and always get a great meal with terrific service.
Delicious food, cool and quiet atmosphere.
Great food and an amazing deal but it was kind of loud. We were glad the place wasn’t packed!
Amazing food and very intimate staff, they we're good at picking up finished plates but didn't interrupt conversation. Highly recommend.
Slightly sloppy sloppy in fabrication and presentation albeit delicious, we got three different types of sushi: “caterpillar” (with tempura crab, roe, spicy jalapeño sauce, cucumber and avocado), “volcano” (with bbq eel and spicy red pepper sauce), and “spider” (with tempura shrimp, avocado, roe, aioli). My two (we shared all three but I ordered spider and caterpillar) were on one plate and not as ‘tight’ in roll as needed. Don’t get me wrong - we ate all and it was good just messy and honestly why not beautiful and perfect since they only had 6 people to focus on? Drink orders promptly taken but once empty water refilled but no one asked if we wanted more to drink or another drink. Sunday night lethargy after busy Saturday? Maybe. We were last out and only one of three tables- small place bistro seating maybe seats 25 maximum. We might go back to try sandwiches and or ramen but I’m ok if we find other Arlington places to try. Ultimately, not enough ‘non-sushi’ entrees? Maybe
GET THE PORK BUNS!
We ordered the Brussels sprouts, tonkatsu buns, and two rolls (spicy tuna and volcano). The Brussels sprouts were delicious and I would highly recommend them to anyone coming. The buns and sushi were good as well, but nothing especially unique or special. However, the decor and service made up for it, and I would probably come again to sample the rest of the menu.
Skip the sushi and go straight for the hot and cold Asian fusion items. Sushi was average at best. The buns are amazing. The crab conquets were equally incredible.
I loved the place, quiet and clean. The food tasted very fresh and delicious.
Great dinner experience and excellent service.
Great selection of sushi and unique steamed buns. Also had poke bowls which we love. Smaller portions than expected for price, but overall was great and would go again.
Always love going to Yona. This is one of my favorite japanese restaurants in town!
Wonderful ramen and buns at this neighborhood gem.
Lots of hard surfaces, and close tables, so it can get a little noisy and hard to have a private conversation at times.
Food is worth the trip.
Great food and attentive servers. Ramen and sushi were delicious. Cool atmosphere.
Sushi was pretty good, but the Brussels sprouts were amazing.
Yona offers nicely-prepared, solidly good food, well-served in a pleasant setting and central location.
Yona is a small, contemporary Japanese restaurant in Arlington. Our Server was excellent and very helpful. We requested help in translating the menu and she helped us chose a simple lunch of sushi and soup bowl. The "Caterpillar Sushi" was outstanding delicious and creative! The Chicken Ramen Soup was comforting and plentiful. (My wife preferred the Sushi. She scallions are not her favorite.)
We would recommend Yona to our friends and we will definitely visit Yona again.
We love every dish on the menu! They’re very delicious and very different than the ones we tried before at any other restaurants. This was our second time to the restaurant . It didn’t fail us again. Service was amazing. Our server she was very smiling and polite. I love how they serve the sake in panda cups and you can get to save them !! So fun! Definitely a BIG recommendation!
Great service and preparation of the food!
First visit - we'll be back. We ordered several items - chicken with a kick, sushi, poke, buri - all were superb. Very attentive staff - thanks, Dragana.
It’s very good sush!!!!
Great food, especially for those who like Japanese and Korean small dishes. Main course, like donburi, come with a wide variety of add on side dishes, e.g. kimchi, seasoned eggs, which are my favorites.
Phenomenal food, probably the best sushi we've found in the DMV area. Amazing service as well.
Great experience ! Will be returning in near future!
Fantastic restaurant with great food and service. Great to order multiple small plates for sharing.
