Geat neighborhood location, comfortable dining area, inventive dishes. The sushi is above average but not spectacular. The daily fish specials from Japan are really outstanding and the best reason for dining there

Horrible customer service experience. Brought my daughter here during a long weekend from College. Five minutes early to the reservation we were seated and began to look at the menus. The server asked for a drink order and I ordered a saki off of he happy hour menu provided and my daughter a water. A few minutes later the server arrived and told us we would have to move outside or to the bar to order off of the happy hour menu. Not pleased by the "customer made a mistake approach" I ordered a beer and continued with the menu. When the drinks arrived I told the server that it was not our fault that we were provided the happy hour menu and would she consider one Saki as "going half way", the response was that the seater was confused (again, customer pays the price of restaurant error) so I said that the customer is at fault approach was not going to bring me back. With no response she reached down to open my beer. At that point I told her we were leaving as I could not imagine enjoying a meal with this treatment. This is not a complaint out of the blue, I confirmed with the host that they had my contact information and sent an email as well - three days with no response.

This is some of the Best sushi I have ever had, and certainly the best sushi in the Washington DC area. I have been to many sushi restaurants around the world, and this ranks up there with the top.

At the end of our meal, my wife said, "This is the best sushi that I've ever had!" I'm not sure that I would disagree with her. We've been to numerous sushi places in southern California when we used to live there and to a few places in Virginia and DC. The best and more memorable places had something outstanding that we wanted to try again. Here, everything was outstanding: the salmon carpaccio starter, the 50-year-old soy sauce that came with the sashimi dinner entree, and the specialty rolls. If you're up for a modern take on sushi with some creativity, definitely give Yume a try. The only thing is that the lychee cocktail wasn't what my wife expected. Guess she'll order another drink next time.

We tried Yume Sushi for the first time and it was very good! Everything was beautifully presented, fresh and delicious! Sat outside (love that they offer outdoor seating!) and the service was pleasant. One misstep in forgetting to bring our sauce and delayed in retrieving our credit cards to pay, but overall, service was friendly, sincere and good. The sushi is so fresh and tasty! Particularly great is that they offer the option to “build your own” roll. Only Japanese beers available on the menu, and portions are suitable for sushi, but not large so plan to order more than one.
Try this spot!

I brought my mother to Yume for Mother’s Day. My boss recommended this place and it did not disappoint at all. We started by ordering Japanese green tea. We were given the choice of drinking it cold or hot. We chose hot. We got a large glass of it which I loved! (We had two) The first thing my mother said was “This is good.” That compliment is difficult to get out of her. We then ordered seaweed salad and The Winner as our appetizer. My mother opened her eyes big and wide after eating The Winner. She said that was very good. After that, we were served chicken tempura which was juicy. Then we ate the scallops nigiri special which became my favorite out of everything I had that night. We also ordered the sashimi roll, yu-me roll, yellow tail, tuna, lavender-smoked salmon sashimi, and special roasted black sesame ice cream. Chef Peter is a master. My mother smiled and said that everything she had was really superb! I definitely see myself coming back to this restaurant over and over in the future.
