Perfect experience!

There's a lot of disconnect between the ambience and service. The interior is very trendy but the service is not up to par. The young staff comes across as newly-hired and trainees. First of, I don't think they even like Japanese food- they seem not to know what they are selling. While I agree with the other reviewer that this... More

I had out of town guests who love Japanese food after having lived in Japan for a year - thought this place was a great choice for the atmosphere and food. The place is small with a full bar, no frozen drinks though. Food is good, presentation great, service can be quicker. Our food was long in coming and at... More

My husband and I were looking for a new sushi place to try, and Sushi Damo was a great find. The atmosphere is modern and intimate, with outdoor tables as well. We loved the Tuna Tataki appetizer, melt in the mouth tuna with a wonderful light ponzu sauce. We also had the sushi and sashimi combo and the Tokyo Rose... More

Stopped in here with some friends for some sushi including some that had never tried sushi before. The food was pretty good with pretty good overall prices and lots of different options. The beer and sake list was pretty good as well. Service could have been better but the atmosphere was very good. It's located in a pretty cool part... More

I recently dined at Sushi Damo for a romantic evening out and had an excellent experience. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. The restaurant was busy on a Saturday night and there were only two of us, but our server recommended moving us to a four seat table because it would give us a better view. The sushi was... More

Great food but I decreased my stars because they wouldn't let us in at 11:27 Saturday night (closed 12:00). That was really annoying. Rice is so important for great sushi. Sushi damo has the best sushi rice I've had in Rockville. Where the rice sticks together but has just a perfect slight firmness that allows the rice grains to separate... More

Great decor, friendly staff. Food is amazing, the sushi top of the line. The Rockville roll is one of my favorites, both beautiful and delicious. Not a place if you are in a hurry however.

My wife, her cousin and me had sushi at Sushi Damo last night. This was my first visit there but I have been to other restaurants in the Town Center. We had reservations for 7pm and the restaurant wasn't very busy (and I was ok with that). To complement what the previous reviewer noted, the waiter asked for our drink... More

(This review is about the restaurant's service. I cannot comment on their sushi). My co-worker and I first went to this restaurant during lunch & it took over 30 minutes (from the time we placed our order) to getting our Bento Box lunch specials with missing components. There were hardly any diners. We provided feedback to management and they were... More
