This place should be packed with sushi lovers. Maybe that’s the rub. A lot of people say they like sushi but they really don’t like true sushi with raw fish. And they like going to places that have things other than sushi because, well, they aren’t real fans of sushi. They might want to be able to tell others they had sushi but nigiri and sashimi isn’t there primary focus. I had dinner at Pabu in San Francisco a few weeks ago. It was good but pretty spendy. Sushi Gakyu is better and much more reasonably priced. I had the $100 omakase and it was great. The selection of fish, the preparation and presentation, the quality, and flavor were all top notch. If you’re a sushi lover you have to try Sushi Gakyu.

We stayed in DC as sort of a weekend-getaway, and Sushi Gakyu happened to be nearby. So we gave it a try. We were disappointed. While the fish (on sashimi, sushi etc) were fresh, the price was way too expensive. The priciest sushi combination, $70, was supposed to have fatty tuna, but the tuna served was just regular tuna. Plating was not aesthetically appealing. I am all for healthy portions, but after $200 (with tips), all of us (including 3 young kids) still felt hungry that we had to find some additional snacks. The service was lukewarm, and it was not necessarily kids-friendly (although quiet and spacious) that there was no high chair. Value-wise, this is really not the place.

The place is very authentic. However sushi pieces were small and pricey. And the selection of rolls is extremely limited.

Amazing food! It’s an odd location, and I think gets more of a lunch crowd, but it’s absolutely worth it for dinner. Really great sushi.

Casual and welcoming. The fish was quite fresh and delicious. The nuta maguro by itself was good enough to warrant a return visit!

This is a wonderful little gem. Comparable with nearby sushi joints like Sushi Ogawa and Nobu. We got the omakase menu and there were several delights throughout. Service was courteous and attentive. Sake pairings were excellent.

Top notch traditional Japanese sushi. The quality of the fish was outstanding, the service was great, and I loved the beautiful wood decor.

Our party of three really enjoyed our experience. The sushi was great, and a regular plate is easily shareable with an extra roll. An underappreciated restaurant near the WH.

There are few Japanese restaurants in DC that have outstanding food, especially sushi. Sushi Gakyu was outstanding, with fish incredibly fresh, texture and flavor, perfect. The non-sushi appetizers were also excellent. This will now be our go to place for Japanese food.

We had the omakase at the sushi bar and it could not have been more awesome. Each dish was beautifully presented, many on very special looking art ceramics. Watching the chef work was a performance in itself. And the result was wave after wave of umami. The sushi is really extravagant- the freshest tastiest fish, perfect vinegar rice and the barest seasoning to make it all shine. And, the appetizers are deliciously simple looking but pack a flavor bomb. To top it off, we the chef’s assistant made us some juleps in honor of Derby day.

Sushi Gakyu was a terrific surprise. The quality of fish is excellent, and the service first-rate. It is right around the corner from my office and I had no idea it was there. The location is great - just steps from the White House and major hotels, but it is surrounded by office buildings, so I worry that no-one knows it is there.

I recommend the chirashi jo, but everything we ordered was terrific.

I think for the price, this is not worth it. I got the fatty salmon nigiri, otoro nigiri and scallop nigiri with the lobster roll. The fish is not great quality and the rice was subpar. For this price, I would just go to Sushi Toro.

Service is impeccable and it's a pleasant place. My bento box was good -- tasty, and the right amount of food. But my dining partner, who was more of a Japanese food aficionado than am I, said her chirashi was skimpy on fish and the fish was not good quality -- and it cost $26 (this was for lunch). I might go back there myself, but would not bring a business contact there again -- I was embarrassed, since I suggested the restaurant!

Service was non existent so while we were waiting at the sushi bar, we witnessed shocking, unsanitary handling of the food. Wiping raw fish on a dirty washcloth to remove excess water from the pre-cut sashimi pieces is not what I want to pay 150 omakase for (esp on Valentine’s Day).

Authentic, upscale sushi restaurant with incredibly high-quality fish and first-class preparation/presentation. It isn't trendy, but the space is well-done. I walked in and knew this was the real deal.

Food was very good and sushi was especially notable. Certainly pricier than most other places but perhaps deservedly so. Interior was a bit spartan and cold.

We are always excited to find a new sushi place. We went on the day after Christmas for lunch and it was very quiet. We had hot tea, miso soup, seaweed salad, sashimi platter and some specialty rolls. It was delicious. Highly recommend.
