Great spot in Arlington/Falls Church City. Great, hip ambience and DELICIOUS sushi. Service was friendly, if a tad slow. Would definitely recommend and will be back!

The service was excellent, and especially accommodating as we were celebrating my wife's birthday. The atmosphere was calm but the right energy for a fun night out. Most importantly, the food was excellent- high quality sushi and some very unique dishes.

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. The variety of sushi available, the presentation, and the Sake list are unmatched in the region. Great service as well, get a seat at the sushi bar! Looking forward to the Omakase next time :)

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.

Noise level so high that it was impossible to conduct a conversation. Was very hard to converse with the servers due to the noise. Food service was poor. We were five and some got their food after others already finished eating. Servers did not know who ordered what and it was hard to sort it out given the almost painful noise level.
The food was quite good although not outstanding but it was reasonably priced. In conclusion, the noise makes the restaurant a very uncivilized place.

My husband and I don't normally eat sushi, but this restaurant opened up just around the corner from us, so we decided to try it. We loved it. The menu was inviting even to those of us who don't know much about sushi and our server was very good at explaining the various "rolls" and soups to us. We enjoyed all of it. We were a little surprised that there weren't more wines to choose from, but the bottle of sauvignon blanc was terrific. We'll be back!
