By subtly combining other ingredients, a taste sensation is created that demonstrates the complexity and beauty of nature for the eye and the palate.

We had a 8 PM reservation and they stopped and close the kitchen at 8:30 so we had to put our full order and including the desert as soon as we Scott seated and I wish they would have the last reservation at 7:30 because I felt very rushed for the price and literally had to order everything all at once and the worst part is we ask the server is the brussels sprouts we’re going to get one order enough for the table and she said yes and then he came pretty probably only asked for more because it obviously wasn’t and she said sorry you can’t get another one and I just think that’s poor service so their last reservation should be at 7:30

Service was horrible and sushi was no impressive. Server had a bad attitude, didn’t even try to be helpful. Took away my nearly empty but not quite empty drink without asking. Plopped down a tray of omakase without explaining what was what. Was told on arrival at 7:45 that last call for food and drinks was at 8:15. Save your money or spend it at one of the other worthy sushi places in the city. Huge disappointment.

Really, this is what one expects from a restaurant. Service, attentiveness, details, great food, pleasant ambiance…it’s the complete package. From start-to-finish.

My son selected Sushiko to celebrate his 13th birthday, and we definitely weren’t disappointed. We’re infrequent diners simply because we like to cook, but we will definitely be back for the days when our own kitchen is closed. Thank you for a wonderful experience, but more importantly, for the great food.

Best sushi around. My sister was visiting from San Francisco & suggested sushi for dinner. Of course, we headed to Sushiko, and were not disappointed. Three of us started with veggie tempura & crispy brussels sprouts (theirs are made with spicy soy caramel & are delicious!). Moved on to 3 types of rolls: rainbow, shrimp tempura, & double salmon. That was plenty, and we were all happy with our selections.

Wonderful sashimi and cooked dishes as well. My favorite sashimi is the kama toro aburi! Yum! Unusually for a Japanese restaurant, the desserts are great as well -- the shiro miso ice cream is to die for. Like salted caramel, only better.

Food was terrible... flavorless. The pork cutlet was the best thing we had. A5 wagyu nigiri used to be a favorite... This visit was a big let down... Ive been here many times before and the quality was superb. What happened!?!? :/ I was underwhelmed with my birthday dinner.

UPDATE:

Their handling of the Coronavirus fears is OUTSTANDING!

We witnessed them sanitize tables with gloves after each guest left. They did their best to space patrons and made us feel incredibly safe. Until this global nightmare is over, I am thankful for Sushiko’s entire team taking it seriously.

FOOD:

We have been faithfully enjoying Sushiko for the last 15 years. having been to the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, and some of the higher end sushi spots in the DC area, Sushiko remains our absolute favorite sushi spot.

The fish is ALWAYS fresh. What makes Chefs Piter and Handry the best of all is their commitment to sourcing the finest fish no matter where. The specials are always awesome. Is the best uni coming from Tokyo this month? They’ll source it. The specials menu will always list where the fish is from, which is a cool feature.

We continue to appreciate their hospitality and the wonderful job the managers and servers (like Coco) do to make us feel at home.

I’ve been to sushiko many times - and have always been of the opinion that their sushi is a cut above. It’s typically fresh, well prepared and presented in a wonderful and beautiful way. My experience last night was notably different. The sushi was ok - but only ok. It was just like the average sushi I get in so many other places. Disappointed. Service and ambiance are very nice.

Our server, Diana, was a gem. And the sushi was amazing. We tried the "tuna 6 ways," and I have never tasted fish so fresh and tender. It absolutely melted in our mouths. The sushi specials--hamachi from Spain and salmon from New Zealand--were excellent. The chicken gyoza (dumplings) were excellent as well. All in all, a spectacular experience!

Every time we come back to Sushiko we have an amazing meal. Not only is the food delicious but the attention to detail in how the food is prepared is wonderful. And while everyone who works there is kind, attentive and provides wonderful service, my family asks to sit in Jason’s section if possible because he gets to know his patrons. He remembers us from visit to visit and at one point he brought our drink orders to the table right after we sat down (remembering from the previous visits). He adds to the enjoyment of our dining experience. We will happily return and recommend this restaurant highly
