This was our second visit so we decided to invite friends and try the Omakase option. Unfortunately, the Chef’s selection were a disappointment given our a’ la carte selections during our first visit. While the sushi and sashimi were high quality, we expected a bit more while in the hands of the Chef.
This is the second time I've been to the restaurant and have enjoyed it both times. The sushi is very fresh and authentic. It's a little pricey, but not outrageously so. The service was not great - we sat a long time after finishing our lunch before someone offered us the check. But overall, this is a restaurant I'll keep coming back to. I'm just surprised that nobody seems to know about it - the place was pretty empty on a Thursday at noon.
One of the best places in DC. Incredible sushi and great value. Probably very busy at lunch, but dinner crowd is always light -- which is great because it's quiet but makes me wonder what everyone else is thinking when it comes to Sushi! So happy this place opened.
The sushi was fantastic. Definitely up there with the top few sushi restaurants in DC. It's in a somewhat odd location and is hidden away, so they're not getting nearly as much of a dinner crowd as they deserve. I hope people start going because I want them to stick around!!
They had a fair selection of sushi, including some exotic choices like Fugu Puffer fish. We stayed very conservative with the eel, salmon skin, lobster rolls. The lobster roll was delicious. The other rolls were fine, but nothing fabulous. Service was Ok, friendly, but got our order wrong (ordered salmon skin handrolls, got regular maki roll, miso soup and seaweed salad only came after we asked about it). I tend to be very lenient in my reviews because everyone is entitled to bad days and my taste in food may be different from others. Ambience was nice and we had a pleasant dinner. Though the budget-conscious person in me did not feel I got a good value for my money, as the sushi rolls were on the small side and did not taste any better than my local favorite sushi restaurant.
The sushi here is fantastic--incredibly fresh and authentic and well worth the expense. The appetizers I had were great, and the drink selection is very good, too. Right now it seems a little empty inside, so I hope more people will start coming once they hear how great the sushi is. I think that the choice of interior decoration may put some people off because is very starkly decorated inside, and the decision to put a big screen tv on one wall is somewhat baffling. But, the sushi is so great, that I would definitely come here again, and I encourage everyone to do so.
Went with two friends for an annual celebratory dinner. We all love sushi and eat it frequently. We chose the Omakase option, where the chef decides what you get. Hadn't realized it was available for table service, and it was fantastic! Three kinds of salmon, each with a ponzu and a yuzu dressing, started off the seafood courses, tasting bright and citrusey. Slices of tuna with paper thin jalapeno and crispy fried onion were outstanding, as were the three plates of nigiri. Sardine, mackerel, and shrimp were standouts, but all were delicious, flavorful and fresh. Will definitely be returning.
High expectations were met by the food. Sat at the bar, enjoyed seeing chef's delight preparing our meal , and lingered OK ver the thoughtfully prepared omakase option. The meal is special, it would be better if the front of house experience (arrival, seating, course delivery) was more polished and engaging.
The sushi is here is outstanding--the freshness of the fish was great. This is a restaurant for a true sushi aficionado who wants an authentic experience at a very Japanese restaurant. It has a lovely calm ambience, and is a nice place to enjoy the sushi experience slowly and fully.
I wish I could give more than 5 stars. This was the most amazing experience I have had. If you don't get the menu and go with Chef's Special, you will spend some extra $$, but believe me, it is absolutely worth it. It reminds me of the documentary, Jiro Dreams of Sushi.
We will be returning on our next trip to DC!
We had an amazing experience at Sushi Gakyu. The restaurant is visually stunning in its simplicity and the service is excellent. Laura at the bar was wonderful in helping us to select the perfect sake to accompany our meal. The sushi was perfection; this is now our favorite sushi restaurant. Looking forward to further exploring the menu.
From the moment we walked in the door until we left - every minute was perfect. The food is fresh and vibrant and wonderful – high-quality sushi in simple presentations designed to bring forth the distinct taste of each type of sushi we ate. We had the Chef's special and plan to return soon to sample our favorite morsels again.
Stopped in on a short trip to D.C. Very nice staff and food was fresh and very tasty. Laura at the bar was very helpful in making suggestions on the menu. My suggestion, let the chef choose what you'll eat. Great for a unique experience. I would definitely consider going again in my next trip.
It's pricey and I'm not certain that the quality of the sushi warrants the price. I did not, however, have the omakase at the bar. Perhaps that is the way to go although it is also expensive. Finally, the ambience is not ideal. It's very stark, unfinished space. Kind of cold and sterile.
