"A Japanese steak house and sushi restaurant. The sushi is out of this world. Chefs are very creative and open to customer requests. They have a wonderful local selection: Soft shell crab roll! Outstanding!"

"The sushi was excellent, but the yellow tail rolls lacked in flavor. Also, the miso soup was WAY too sweet to my liking. There is no happy hour. "

"I've been to Sushi Sono 5-6 times over the past three years. It was at the top of my all-time list for the D.C. metro area... UNTIL NOW. I had dinner there Nov. 4th 2003 and I was EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED. No hostess. No shibori. Nasty dull spoiled sushi. Over-ripe avocado. Fake crabmeat in the Deluxe. I was lucky to make it home, I was in the bathroom all night. "
- Martin Thurn ( [Nov 6th 2003]
"I went to Sushi Sono last night with a friend and will never return. The service during the meal was acceptable but after you pay - they want you out quickly. I have never been so insulted in my life. Having frequented hundreds of restaurants around the country, I have Never been asked to leave. The waitress came to our table and stated 'I will have to ask you two to leave, we have many people waiting and you too have been here too long'. What is too long? 1 1/2 hours for a meal? I was appalled and left quickly vowing never to return. If you plan on leisurely meal think again before going here! Rude service. "

"I am sushi fanatic, and Sushi Sono is one of my absolute favorite sushi restaurants in the US. I live in Virginia, but occassionally make the one-hour drive to Maryland for this tasty treat. The sushi is fresh, the specials are incredible, and the service is great. We usually get a private room (requires a minimum purchase) for a couple hours -- this is great for families with small children. You do have to leave when the time's up, so as not to delay the parties after you, but the staff was always very polite and I don't see this as a negative thing. Anyway, check it out! Ajay Batra [March 5th 2005] ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- -------- Since years, I am regular customer in this tiny, wonderfull, always packed sushi place in town. Service used to have failed for a short period of time in 2004, but as ZAGAT \'05 rates SUSHI SONO again as one of the best on site an within the entire region...I just can say: GO THERE, EAT THERE, BE THERE. Sebastian Stahl ([July 12th 2005] ---------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------- ------- Service is brusque. Menu is limited if you want something other than sushi. Sushi is generally very good and view is nice, but I doubt I will be back because of the service. Service is quick, but not always polite or satisfactory, not a nice place to relax. EJG [Aug 15th 2005] ---------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------- ------- I did not like sushi in general but my husband is a huge fan of sushi. Sushi Sono was recommended to us by friends as soon as my husband had his first bite he was amazed. The freshness alone would have made him a repeat customer. He suggested that I try sushi one more time and that we have it Sushi Sono and I did, now I am more of a fan than he is. I have even begun to eat things that he hasn't tried. I don't know what I am going to do when I move away from MD, Where am I going to find a place that makes a bridal veil(My absolute favorite roll)? Toni, Columbia Md [Dec 5th 2005] ------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------- I just moved from Dallas and have been looking for a good sushi restaurant in Maryland. Last Friday, this place was packed and the sushi couldn't have been better. The toro tartare just melted in my mouth. The dragon roll was fantastic and I'd highly recommend it. Everything was very fresh. about the ibnly complaint I'd have is that when it's very busy, the people waiting for a table are all crammed together at the tiny, tiny reception area. make a reservation in advance and you'll be happy you did.
