Yume is a solid all around 4. Service is friendly and professional. Cocktails are delicious, but could be a little more generous on the servings. The magnificent spherical ice cube was a little too voluminous. We sat next to the fore extinguisher, which was a little annoying, as I’d inevitably bump it slight with my arm or shoulder occasionally. The setting is very pleasant otherwise, though. Music was ok, nothing too disruptive.
Most important the food is high quality, but a little sweet for my taste; maybe a little heavy on the rice vinegar? Not sure.

Overall, a great dining experience, if pricey.

Yume Sushi
Responded on 18 February 2020

Thank you for your four star review Sote. We appreciate your feedback on our food, cocktails, and service. We use spherical ice cubes as it does not dilute the cocktail as quickly as regular ice. We do have a higher price point but that is because of the higher quality proteins and ingredients we serve in each dish. We do hope to give you a five star experience next time! Furthermore, our happy hour (4 - 6PM Tuesday - Friday) includes $4 beverages, appetizers, and sushi rolls.

I do not like to write restaurant reviews, but after falling in love with Yume Sushi, I feel obligated to write something. The quality, the taste, the texture and presentation of the food are the reason to come back to this place. This is my 5th time dining in this restaurant and I always leave this place thinking that I have to come back again. I recommend the Omakase dinner experience, Chef Saran prepared very creative and delicious sushi tasting. Chef Saran and his staff are very nice and friendly. My friends and I always have great time and wonderful food experience here.

This is place is so hip with delicious, uniquely crafted sushi. Nothing feels routine here. The staff is outstandingly gracious and eager to please. And the ambient music always lifts my spirit. I especially love the scallop dish on the appetizer list - delicate with bits of mango underneath that I savor each time. And then foie gras on other pieces of delicate seafood is a wonderful combo.

The quality of the sushi is good as well as the service. Unfortunately, we felt the portion was a bit small. One of us had four rolls and I had the anniversary omakase dinner. We were both still hungry. With one drink each, our bill came to $120. It's a bit on the steep side considering we didn't order any special dishes.

Birthday dinner at an affordable highly rated sushi restaurant. The service was great. The ambiance and decor was exceptional. And the food was very good! Based on the size of the dishes, it’s worth ordering quite a bit, maybe more than normal at a sushi restaurant. But I loved being able to try a wide variety. We also went on a Monday when they were offering 20% off their bottles of wine and sake!

If you are a sushi lover you will be thrilled with the little sushi bar. My wife and went for the “Omakase” at $85 dollars per person the experience was well worth the money. The personal touch just meant the world. Also, if we did check the menu out and a dinner for two could easily come under $100. The one negative were drink prices. The drinks a priced too high for the somewhat lack luster cocktails. It is annoying with the price gouge on “Japanese whiskey” $30 per small pour of Hibiki was a little much (definitely less than an ounce). The bottle cost $75 retail. Mark ups are okay but is that within reason? Overall high recommend stick with the Sake.

Yume Sushi
Responded on 25 November 2019

Thank you for your four star review JHatfield -we appreciate your feedback on our Omakase, which we agree is a fantastic experience and value. Hibiki is something that we can barely get in Virginia, due to its rarity. We are only able to get a case every few months; therefore, the price is higher due to its higher demand. We thank you for recommending our sake, of which we offer a vast variety!

The restaurant missed an opportunity for excellent service by accepting reservations by OpenTable, but not reviewing special requests until we showed up. We were told upon arrival that the restaurant can’t accommodate our Omakase service as they require a phone call for that reservation as opposed to online. That was very disappointing since we came for a special occasion and were ready to spend.

Ultimately, the host was very nice, apologetic and tried to be as accommodating as possible. That was appreciated. We sat in the bar area and the food was excellent and we tried some of the specials (butter scallops were really amazing) that were also served Omakase, but the experience definitely was not the same.

Since OpenTable provides the ability to note special occasions and requests - and our reservation was made more than 24hr in advance - I hope the restaurant considers allowing use of the app to make Omakase reservations in the future.

Horrible customer service experience. Brought my daughter here during a long weekend from College. Five minutes early to the reservation we were seated and began to look at the menus. The server asked for a drink order and I ordered a saki off of he happy hour menu provided and my daughter a water. A few minutes later the server arrived and told us we would have to move outside or to the bar to order off of the happy hour menu. Not pleased by the "customer made a mistake approach" I ordered a beer and continued with the menu. When the drinks arrived I told the server that it was not our fault that we were provided the happy hour menu and would she consider one Saki as "going half way", the response was that the seater was confused (again, customer pays the price of restaurant error) so I said that the customer is at fault approach was not going to bring me back. With no response she reached down to open my beer. At that point I told her we were leaving as I could not imagine enjoying a meal with this treatment. This is not a complaint out of the blue, I confirmed with the host that they had my contact information and sent an email as well - three days with no response.
