The food was awesome! Rolls are smaller (and cheaper) than a typical sushi place which allows you to try more of the chefs creative and delicious dishes. I highly recommend!
just ok....nothing bad, nothing great, small uninspired rolls and sushi....if you want that hip vibe, this is for you, if you want good food at a reasonable price, plenty of better options
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 :)
Thank you for your five star review! We are so happy to hear that we gave you some of the best sushi you've ever tasted and to be considered your top sushi restaurant in the area. We hope to serve you again and thank you again for your detailed feedback.
Couldn't wait to try Chef Peter's new restaurant! He is hands down the BEST sushi chef in the area. I will gladly travel from DC to Falls Church to eat this delicious, incredible fish. Great rolls, fantastic sashimi, excellent desserts and whiskeys. Oh..and the service is A+++
Thank you for your five star review Jennifer! We are so honored to be considered as having the best sushi chef in the area; and having stellar customer service. Thank you for your detailed category feedback, we can't wait to serve you again soon!
The best sushi we've had in years; incredible creativity and care in every plate.
Thank you for your five star review Leah! We are so happy to hear you had a great experience in food, service, ambience, and value! We are honored to hear that you consider us to have the best sushi. Chef Peter's passion truly comes out in every dish and we are so glad that you noticed this. We hope to have you back at Yume Sushi again soon!
Thank you for your five star review and comment on our sushi! We are so glad you enjoyed every aspect of our restaurant and can't wait to welcome you back. We hope to have you try our omakase upon your return!
Menu was catered more towards rolls and the rolls were small for the price. This is not a place I recommend for authentic sushi experience.
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.
Thank you for your five star review FanJ - and for the details of how great your experience was. What an honor to be named the best sushi by your wife, we pride ourselves on customer service and quality of our food so we are very excited to hear that you enjoyed everything. We hope to have you back for our omakase or happy hour, where we have $4 rolls and drinks! Thank you again!
The scallop sushi special is always a must try! Been here 5 times now and every time the food has been consistently delicious!
Thank you for your five star review Shai! We appreciate your repeat business and are so happy to hear how much you love Yume Sushi and can't wait to see you back here again!
A bit more unique sushi choices, lots of options, and absolutely everything was incredibly delicious. Will be back for sure!
Thank you for your five star review Carolyn! We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us! Thank you for commenting on the variety of our menu and your experience. Chef Peter takes a lot of care in creating each dish, we hope to see you back at Yume Sushi soon!
Best sushi experience in Northern Virginia. Chef Peter provides excellent sushi "classics," along with a number of innovative dishes to keep things interesting. Love the atmosphere and vibe.
Thank you for your five star review Tim! We are so glad you had such a great time and enjoyed Chef Peter's craft. We get our fish flown fresh every day from all around the world. We can't wait to see you back at Yume Sushi, you'll have to try some of our in house infused sake cocktails curated by Chef Peter
Staff is very nice and accommodating - I love this place

Fantastic dishes. Great attention to detail.

I really enjoyed the food and dining experience at this restaurant. Unfortunately it's a little far from where I live to go regularly (or I would), but it was very fresh, very tasty and I really enjoyed it.
Thank you for your four star review. We appreciate that you enjoyed our fresh fish. We hope to give you a five star experience 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.
Thank you for your five star review LNera. We are so glad you and your mother had such a great time. We agree that The Winner is one of the best items on our menu so it is wonderful to hear you and your mother enjoyed it too! We can't wait to welcome you back to Yume Sushi!
We really like Yume Sushi. The food is delicious, unique and beautifully prepared and presented. The staff is very lovely and friendly and the decor has a very modern, urban feel. It feels like an exciting night out without being too noisy. We have been several times and keep spreading the word. (:
Thank you for your five star review Just! We are so glad to hear you loved the food and its presentation. We pride ourselves on our product and service so it is great to hear you had a fantastic customer experience. We appreciate you spreading the word about Yume Sushi!
We love Yume Sushi. The scallop special was a highlight. The lavender smoked salmon was incredible as usual. Chef does an incredible job. Will definitely return, next time for Omakase. Highly recommend.
Thank you for your five star review Joshua! We are thrilled to hear you had such a great experience and enjoyed the lavender smoked salmon. Thank you for being a frequent visitor and we can't wait for you to try to the Omakase!
We had a great Mother's Day lunch at Yume Sushi. It was like eating Sushi in Japan. AMAZING!
Thank you for your five star review Tina! We are so glad you spent Mother's Day with us and appreciate your business and feedback.
Excellent fresh fish. Delicious flavor combinations. Don't leave the restaurant without trying the Black & Blue and the creamy scallops! The cold brew sake made for a great pairing with the sushi.
Thank you for your five star review Fez! We appreciate your comments on our food and drinks. We can't wait to welcome you back to Yume Sushi!
We came for our wedding anniversary and they were able to fit us into an omakase tasting. The service was attentive and superb, and the food was so creative and delicious.
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.
A great new addition to the Sushi scene in the DC area. Probably one of the best sushi places in DC and definitely in Arlington. (And I've had sushi all around Asia).
Everything was fantastic. I wish there was an option on opentable to reserve an omakase
I really enjoyed my Omakase dinner. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to watch Peter work and enjoy the beautiful dishes he created.
Chef Peter and his sushi team do a great job at preparing delicious pieces of nigiri. We try the specials each time we go and have never been disappointed. They also have a great sake selection. The black sesame ice cream is a must try, it taste like an elevated peanut butter. All around delicious meal and great staff!!
Awesome! So glad to finally have great sushi in our neighborhood! Wish the wine list was more extensive, but plenty of beers and sake to make up for it.
So damn good. 🍣🍣🍣😍😍😍🌸🌸🌸
Order the Winner, creamy scallop roll, baby octopus salad, one of their daily specials, the yume roll, bbq eel roll, and taste of Japan. Everything was very good in terms of flavor and presentation. Orders came out quickly.
This was my third time in. Their sushi is the freshest and best I have had, and the rest of my party said the same. It is also uniquely beautiful in design. The staff is very friendly and informative. I will surely be back.
Fabulous and fun experience! Highly recommend
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!
The ambiance was chic industrial with cool wild art painted on the walls. Service was warm, competent, efficient. I loved the sushi with tempura flakes in the rice and lots of choices with mango. Really delicious and fresh! Excited to go back and try the okumase.
Though a little pricey and a little noisy at points I can't rate my experience at Yume anything short of 5 stars. The service was incredible, outshone only by the quality of the food. Yes it can be expensive but everything I ordered felt worth the price paid and then some. The chefs took me on a gosh dang culinary journey. Some dishes were delicate, some spicy, some fruity, some had incredible umami and in all of them the fish was the star. How they accomplished such a wide variety of textures and flavors using almost exclusively ingredients from the sea is beyond my reckoning. I can only conclude that they are wizards who perform their magic via rice and knife rather than wand.
If you aren't sure what to order get whatever is fresh and don't be afraid to rely on the recommendations of your servers or the chefs, they will not steer you wrong. I will warn you that this is not a traditional sushi experience like you would find at some other notable local sushi stops. If that's what you are looking for, you may not find it here, but what you will find is unique and worth experiencing. Where else in town will you find Lavender Smoked Salmon Nigiri?
I may not be able to afford to eat here regularly but by god I'd show up every night if I could.
The food and ambiance had a very modern-chic vibe, and seemed like it would be great place to have a more up-scale date without being too expensive. The only downfall I found was that the restaurant itself is a bit crowded, so if you’re seated at a table anywhere other than next to the main walking area, you have to squeeze by other tables and customers (even if you’re a relatively small person).
A neighborhood more upscale sushi restaurant. We live in the hood and still like it.....have been there a few times. Will keep walking back. A cool vibe and good food but small portions.
Terrible sushi, rice was mushy, sauces tasted bad, took to friends here because the reviews were good, VERY disappointed
Amazing experience. Staff and chef are great. Sushi is excellent and chef prepares it in front of you with such care. A true artisan. One of our favorite spots!! Thank you!!
We really enjoyed dining there. Inside is very nice and modern and really clean!!!!
The sushi was great and the rolls were creative. Will definitely make way back here again
