  • Belly up to the bar between 5:30 and 7pm for half-price sushi, wine and beer. Via
  • Great window seating and perfect spicy tuna rolls
  • Sitting at the sushi bar and watching the chefs do their deft blade work on hulking slabs of fish, making edible art with Zen-like calm, provides some insight into what makes Sushi Taro special.
  • Happy hour with half price sushi and drinks from 5:30 until 7. But get here early, it feels up quick.
  • *** stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. (Tom recommends the wild yellowtail, sweet shrimp, uni or panko-crusted chicken.)
  • Absolutely fresh and delicious sushi.. Try the rainbow roll and the fun tempura roll.. Happy hour 50% off between 5-7 pm
  • Best happy hour in DC! Get the salmon, eel, and fatty tuna roll with scallion. Rainbow roll, shrimp tempura are a close second. Yellowtail was a nice addition. Spicy tuna roll was only okay.
  • If the set dinner is too rich for your blood, try their amazing lunch specials.
  • Meh. Been here twice. Still not impressed. Overpriced and mediocre compared to Omen in NYC.
  • Traditional Kaiseki and Sushi tasting menus are amazing. It's a bit pricey but it's an authentic, delicious experience. Wonderful service. You get what you pay for.
  • Wow! sushi is amazing! This place is high end! If you can't decide get a sushi or sashimi omakase!
  • The sashimi of fatty tuna, air-shipped from Japan is on the best dishes list in Washingtonian Magazines 100 Best Restaurants issue.
  • Fish quality was great, and the seasoning was superb. The spicy tuna in the rainbow roll was my least favorite one.
  • No wonder this resto has a Michelin star. It was a wonderful experience start to finish. If you like sushi, you have to visit. Fisherman miso is a hit
  • The omakase sashimi was really good. Generous cut of sashimi and really fresh too.
  • Great service and the food was fantastic. Definitely get the tempura! The green tea cake was heaven!
  • Very authentic, the Pokmon and the wild shrimp maki were excellent
  • Visited for a lunch. Good quality fish, everythings is nice, but do not expect smth special. Probably they rock for a dinner. Matcha dessert was disappointing.
  • If youre here on a date and can swing it, get the chefs sushi tasting menu. Good way to get to try everything this wonderful restaurant has to offer, and really expand your palette.
  • Very good sushi, the best I have tasted in D.C so far :)
