Love this place! Excellent sushi at a good price. I've been a couple of dozen times and have enjoyed every meal.

Absolutely amazing sushi! Probably the best and freshest sushi we ever tasted. This restaurant is simply incredible! Very creative rolls, and the service was also beyond spectacular.

Much better than average sushi joint, on the pricey side but reasonable for the quality and variety. Solid place and beautiful small-town location.

Amazing sushi! The chef guided us through the menu and we enjoyed some of the best sushi we’ve had in years. Truly, West Coast level stuff! Can’t wait to return.

This little gem has amazing food quality! We were blown away with this sushi! We are used to California and Hawaii sushi so our bar is set pretty high. They did not disappoint. My only critique is for Friday or Saturday night, your little place shouldn’t have a huge party. It was sooooooooo loud. My husband and I and a few other couples in there were just overwhelmed with the noise. So we left earlier than we would have liked. Hoping next time we come, there won’t be a 20 person party table.
But we did love having the owner come over and make recommendations to us based on his freshest fish. Love that! Quality is definitely important to him and we appreciate that!

Fantastic fish quality & selection. The rice is seasoned perfectly for our loking and the presentation is beautiful! The service is friendly and genuine, the lack of attentiveness is only because of experience not because they do not care...

I have eaten at many sushi places in Fairfax, Vienna, and Arlington and Red Bar Sushi is WAY overpriced for average quality sushi. Their sushi rolls are below average and their ramen and udon were inedible. My son said “cup o noddle has more flavor”. Service didn’t exist the whole night. Total waste of time and money. Will never recommend this place to anyone.

It was kinda middle of the road.
Servers were friendly but not really efficient and not really attentive. Food was pricey but good.
I have had better in other towns.

We were there on a very, very busy night, which included a rain shower that brought all the patrons seated outside into the restaurant. While the service was a tad bit slower than usual and the noise level was a bit louder than usual, the food was great, as was our overall dining experience.

Was told our table would probably be 20-30 minutes after our reservation (reserved for party of 8). Was told we had time to have a cocktail somewhere and come back and first drinks were on them. That was nice, but did not happen. No drinks on them.Oh well. Air conditioning seemed to not work well on a very hot night. Food was good. I did not have sushi myself, but one person in my party stated more rice in rolls than another place they frequent. But I had nothing to compare to. I had steak teriyaki that was cooked exactly how I ordered it , medium rare . All and all everyone in our party liked it.

This place continues to impress, we routinely get the Omakase platter and have yet to be disappointed in terms of the fish quality or freshness. The chefs consistently prepare the appropriate classic sushi menu items while being experimental with some of their weekly specials (steak and egg roll that had quail egg and wagyu, baked lobster roll). Neil(Manager/owner?) and staff make you feel welcome and are constantly hustling to ensure the keep up with the weekend crowd. A gem find in Loudoun County

The good was great and very fresh. The only suggestion I have is to have more vegetarian options - my husband is vegetarian. The veggie platter had fish on it, which seemed a bit odd to me.

The staff went above and beyond to make our birthday celebration extra special...from mylar balloons, to a fabulous dessert. They hit it out of the park. Definitely can't recommend this restaurant enough.

As a California girl, I love me some sushi. Red Bar never disappoints. Fish is always fresh, they have great specials like tuna and salmon toro that melts in your mouth. We’re lucky to have them in Middleburg!

The service was not great and my sushi took over an hour to come out. The manager did comp my meal, but I wish they had told me how long it would take in the beginning. I think the food was pretty good, but I would not go back.
