The Sushiko food philosophy is Cuisine of Subtraction. According to Creative Director Daisuke Utagawa, subtraction allows chefs to reveal the essence of each ingredient in it's most honest yet refined state. 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 never tire of the Brussels sprouts and the Element rolls.

Sushiko is one of my favorite Go To neighborhood restaurants. Always a good place to meet friends. The service and food can be depended upon to be wonderful. The parking is easy and validated.

My wife and I had been to Sushi Ko a number of times and always enjoyed it. Recently we went there for a Valentines Day dinner and were disappointed. All four courses of the “special” dinner were somewhere between adequate and poor.

Excellent sushi, but not inexpensive! The hamachi appetizer ($18) was superb. Even my salad was good. But be prepared to spend a lot.

All four of us ordered the three course lunch special. It was beautifully prepared. The seaweed salad was obviously not store bought but freshly made and delicious. Great food, great value.

an outstanding sushi/sashimi restaurant in an attractive setting, if a little hard to find on a first visit. It is hardly a bargain restaurant but the prices are very fair given the high quality and personal preparation of each dish.

My partner and I were shopping around the area so we actually were 45 minutes early for our reservation. They made accommodating to us so we can dine early. The soup is soothing and the sashimi is fantastic in term of freshness and thickness(for the value obviously). The sea scallops are perfectly cooked and the sweet pea puree is a beautiful balance. The whole dish is just delightful. The salmon is perfectly cooked and my partner falls in love with the way they marinated it. It is the Japanese way unlike many of restaurants here in America. I love the sushi and the maki roll. Great fish, great rice and great balance. The portion is huge in terms of average Japanese restaurant. I am pretty full even before desserts. Dessert is the average green tea ice-cream, but I am already satisfied with the two courses I had.

The sushi was incredibly fresh and well-portioned. For such fresh fish the prices were very reasonable, however this is a pricier restaurant. We went for restaurant week and I got the miso soup, sashimi, and sushi platter (forget the names). The miso soup was small and I would have preferred the seaweed salad instead. I tried my friends and it was delicious, quite large, and had several different types of seaweed. Service was excellent, our waters were never empty and the waiter was always available when needed but not there too much, it was the perfect balance. Overall it was a great experience and I will definitely be back to try other dishes and maybe the omakase Bar.

We enjoyed our dinner, but not the noise level in the downstairs room. If you care about noise level, insist on a table upstairs.

Wow! Each dish was immaculately plated and divine in taste. The restaurant staff bent over backwards to accommodate our schedule changes. One in our party ordered cooked salmon and said it was the second best he'd had in his life. We who ordered sushi thought we had the better meal. You know the food is exceptional when everyone at the table claims victory for having chosen the best menu item. I'll be back.

This restaurant was in the neighborhood and was participating in Restaurant Week. I’m glad I picked it because it’s now my new favorite sushi spot and cocktails are amazing.

First visit was for my wife's birthday lunch during restaurany week. The restaurant does not face Wisconsin Ave., so it took a few minutes to find it. Plenty of parking. Got a nice quiet corner booth. We both had the three course special. All food was presented beautifully. Service was just right - attentive and prompt without being bothersome. Excellent seaweed salad. I had the very good shrimp tempura. Sushi was also excellent. Only slight disappointment was the slightly dry rice on the spicy tuna roll, undoubtably prepared ahead of time. Surprised us with a nice desert of fried banana with ice cream and chocolate sauce. Will definitely return.
