Sushiko - Chevy Chase
Has been consistently great for years!
Went to take advantage of restaurant week bc week like to sample new restaurants this way. It did not disappoint. Appetizers of seaweed salad and miso soup were spot on and a good start after priming our appetites with edamame. Service was good; busperson was very attentive to clearing plates as needed. Noise level made it a little difficult to communicate with our waiter but all was well. The second course of chef's selection sashimi resulted in three pairs of nicely presented tuna, salmon and yellowtail. All extremely fresh and superbly cut. The third course was chef's choice nigiri with your choice of a roll. I chose the spicy tuna which was again very good. There were six pieces of fish atop rice base along with 8 pieces of the tuna roll. Very filling and again well presented and prepared. The spicy sauce wasn't overpowering but nicely spread throughout your mouth subtlety reminding you of the presence of the heat which complimented the fish and rice. There's a nice wine selection though it appeared pricey and a good selection of cocktails which other diners seemed to enjoy. We'd definitely return. Reservations might be in order as it was almost a full house between 630 and 7pm. Outdoor seating is available.
Restaurant Week lunch was unimpressive.
Overall a pleasant experience with serene ambiance. Seaweed salad & tuna sashimi were outstanding while the maki roll was average. Chicken yakitori taste was boring & forgettable.
Wonderful food, the sushi was fresh and delicious!
We've been to Sushiko many times, but tonight the food was particularly fresh and tasty!
The sashimi was some of the best I've ever had. The pork rib was sublime. And the service was excellent too. When we couldn't decide which sake to get, we were given small tastes of our top contenders.
Our fifth time there.... 3rd time enjoying the tasting menu. Always amazing. A special occasion restaurant, and one of our top 5 favorites!
Our favorite MD/DC sushi and Japanese restaurant!
Innovative dishes, spectacular rolls. Our waiter was very helpful and made good recommendations.
Great lunch at Sushiko in Friendship Heights. We enjoyed the outdoor seating area surrounded by planters. The occasional delivery truck going through the parking lot was a bit of a distraction in terms of noise. Top notch sushi and good service.
Freshest sushi around. Traditional fare. Excellent
Really great food. Best sushi in the area!
Sat outside so mostly a bit of noise came from buses (smell at one point, too) sometimes stopping by the grocery store nearby, otherwise a very tranquil experience for conversation purposes. Some light music would have been nice, but not mandatory. The service was really great, food was excellent. Definitely a place I will return to in the future! Great drink selection as well.
The tasting menu was fantastic and our drinks were delicious. Would absolutely suggest it!
Always reliably good! Special Thank you to the staff for being so considerate of the elderly person at our table. We appreciate your assistance with seating and access
Birthday dinner was absolutely perfect 😊😊😊😊
For a high end sushi place I was looking for more interesting rolls as well as gluten free options.
Fabulous food and fabulous service!!! Our waitress was very attentive and efficient.
Sushiko is no ordinary Sushi Bar. Food is consistently fantastic and unique. Their tasting menu never disappoints, and makes the ordering easy, as very often there are too many choices at sushi restaurants.
Sushiko is truly a special occasion restaurant - one we will return to over and over.
Best and freshest sushi in Washington, D.C. in my opinion. Expensive too but you get what you pay for
Excellent as usual.
Hard to find but lovely meal
Food and service was great! Best Japanese restaurant in the area!
Great place. Highly recommended.
For dining, a fairly good experience. I'd say B. Ordered the summer omakase menu. In terms of food quality, I thought the mushrooms and non-tuna fish was very good with few exceptions. Three stars because I felt the bluefin tuna left something to be desired, with the exception of the otoro nigiri. If cost was an issue, I would have gone with a less expensive (and more sustainable) tuna and gotten higher fat content. I also would recommend for the accompanying maki to the nigiri course not going with a spicy tuna, but instead a regular tuna maki. If you're serving fresh fish (which selection aside this place is), you should celebrate it, not mask it with spicy mayo. I also would use a bit less sodium in both the broth, and the what seemed to be a version of ponzu sauce for the sashimi. Fish quality outside tuna as mentioned before was very good.
Noise in the section of the dining room we sat in was a bit of an issue. We sat in the far room, I enjoyed the murals on the side, the lighting was nice. However, there is a bit of an echo. In such a case, I think it may make sense to seat guests who do not have kids in another room, as several families had noise that carried, given that there was space available elsewhere.
Side note, I have been here for happy hour and do think its a good value for that.
This has been the best Japanese dining experience that I’ve had in the DC area. The level of service and the art of the experience was amazing. The Tuna 7 Ways should not be missed!
Great Japanese food in modern Japanese-style setting.
Delicious food and very pleasant overall, as always. We were a bit surprised when the server scraped and stacked our used plates at the table—it seemed way too casual for this fairly dignified restaurant. (But that is unlikely to keep us from coming back!)
Nice day to eat outside on a Saturday. Food was great. But, the place closes at 3 for lunch. So we were rushed out including the bartender stopped serving drinks in the middle of our meal.
Great ambiance. Location is nice.
Best sushi and cooked seafood dishes I've ever had. Good wine list, heavy on Burgundies. Marta is a fabulous server. Kudos all around!
Mel’s the best hostess!
Fine. Good food
Great server on her first day on the job. Sense of humor and accommodated my eccentricity (e.g., I lose it when someone e tries to pour my beer.) The boss got upset with her when she did not refill my beer glass so I had top explain . She is a great addition to one my favorite restaurants.
Omakase was below average. Fish wasn’t especially fresh or good. Nothing special.
Overall the place was nice. The services was good. It was a bit overpriced.
Sushiko used to be our favorite sushi restaurant. It"s faults now Outweigh its positive features. We asked for some very basic alternatives which the waiter said were absolutely impossible. One guest did not get wine until after her food arrived. Some of our favorite dishes are no longer on the menu. Some of the dishes were only mediocre at best and the prices are still high. Too many other options, we will not go back.
