Very courteous service and professionalism, but would be helpful to a helping hand to people who are introduced to sushi for the first time as difficult to choose from the menu and what to order.
Perhaps they could introduce such Mems as “sushi for the first time!

This place has the best sushi in DC (and I've been to Sushi Taro, Makoto, Sushi-ko, and Kotobuki. The sushi chef is an authentic Japanese sushi chef and the fish is very fresh and delicious. The first time we came, they didn't offer nigiri specials, but they now have a nice variety of nigiri specials at different price points. It's bit hard to find since the sign for the restaurant is not very obvious but it's just a few doors from the National Museum for Women and the Arts on New York Avenue NW (near G Street NW). We went on Christmas day for dinner and there was parking right in front of the restaurant, which is very unusual as New York Avenue and that entire area is usually packed. This is a real gem if you love sushi.

Very disappointing; skimpy portion, poor tasting, and overpriced; much like a bad neighborhood sushi restaurant charging Michelin star restaurant price; poor plating and presentation; chefs who care would not serve food as such; server had on too much cologne; other negative reviews were right on; spent $120 on lunch for 2; I wish I was never there; feel really cheated

Great traditional base of sushi with a few more western, though now common, twists added in, such as jalapeno with the usuzukiri. Highlight is the fish, though selection was rather limited, all was good. Differently vinegared rice used for differing fish showing nice attention to details. $100 omakase is a little more pricey than Ogawa, the top competitor at this price point.

We went here for sushi prior to attending Beetlejuice at the National Theater a few blocks away. The menu was very broad and the sushi was great. Service was quick and responsive. I would recommend and would definitely go back before a show.

This may be the best sushi in DC right now. Gorgeous, fresh fish. Perfect sushi rice. The chef/owner Yoshi is a master. We sat at the bar but did not do the omakase menu (we will next time!). The chef worked quietly and meticulously toward the other end of the bar. As we were finishing our meal, he came over to introduce himself. He is a warm, funny man who cares deeply about his food and customers. The restaurant manager was wonderful as well. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Most importantly, the sashimi and sushi were divine. Simple, fresh ingredients. Slices of fish were not too thick, not too thin. The rice had perfect body and the right mix of vinegar and sugar. We can’t wait to try the omakase menu!

We went on a double date here with friends. We really enjoyed ourselves - the sushi was very fresh, the spicy tuna roll actually had some kick to it (whereas many places make it only mildly spicy), and the toro nigiri was 100% worth it. They also had a decent sake selection; my only complaint was that the sake menu could explain, describe, and group the offerings they had. Was a bit hard to choose without knowing them by name.

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.

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.
