The sushi that was prepared was not good. It seemed not to be fresh. The crab meat wasn't true crab meat. It was also overpriced especially comparing to New York City sushi restaurants which serve better food than at this restaurant. The waitress didn't even ask if we wanted desert at the end. She seemed unhappy to be there. Having... More

Tono is well located for visitors to the Woodley Park hotels. I had a sushi and sahimi plate which was fine, but not memorable. They were busy while we were there and service was quick and efficient.

I stayed in the Marriott at Wardman Park across the street and chose this place out of many within the walking distance because it seemed the most welcoming of all. I was here on 06/08 for dinner and the place was packed. I wanted a table for myself, I was walked in, but the hostess came to realize there wasnt... More

I go to Tono at least once a week and I am always satisfied with the experience. Their sushi rolls are great (especially the Rainbow Roll) and their happy hour special for single pieces of sushi is really good. They also serve complimentary bean sprouts with every meal.

Daughter chose this place as her graduation lunch. I didn't realize that the portions would be standard size. I thought they would be smaller. As such, I ended up ordering food I didn't eat. Just be aware that theirs 'soup' is an actual 'meal', not a starter. Having said that we ordered sushi, soup, fried rice, and curry chicken. Everything... More

Can't go wrong. Not the best but not the worst. Chicken curry and avocado rolls were good. Reasonable price for lunch. Staff were friendly.

We have been to Tono's several times over the past few years. The sushi is always fresh and well priced during happy hour. The tempura was crispy, and the complimentary seafood salad was tasty. We will continue to go there.

We stopped here for lunch as it is right across the street from the Marriott Wardman Park and we were attending a convention. The restaurant is in the lower level and is quite small, so we had to wait about 15 mins for a table. The atmosphere was comfortable and staff were friendly. There were some great lunch specials with... More

I love sushi, but often it is more expensive than I like so I don't get to eat it as often as I would like. I came in here for the happy hour offer of 1$ per piece of sushi. The happy hour menu was much larger than I expected and everything was VERY fresh. Highly recommend during happy hour,... More

My daughter and I were in DC for a week and we ate here three times because it was so good! The sushi is the best we've ever had, and the service was great! Excellent atmosphere, very friendly staff! Try the Dragon Roll! You won't be disappointed!
