Always wonderful and fresh. The best sushi I've had in Arlington; wonderful vegetarian dishes too. Our favorites are the Red Sox Maki, Sono House Special Maki, Mango Shrimp, and "chicken" style vegetarian meat General Gao's style.

Although this restaurant is very near to me, I tried it last week for the first time. I chose the salmon Bento box. In addition to the usual quartet of the expected things, miso soup, salad, rice and a few pieces of sushi, I got...all that plus a fantastic, flavorful mixture of the salmon with lots of vegetables and a terrific sauce. Couldn’t believe how delicious everything was. Reasonable too. Can’t wait to go back.More

We love having reliable and delicious sushi just a few blocks from home. It's a great place to catch a game or celebrate a Tuesday. Take-out is good too.

Friday night walk in and the place was lively but not crowded. I think lots of folks where picking up takeaway. Shown to a table quickly.. Drinks orders took a while Food orders took longer. After waiting sometime it became clear that our appetiser had...been forgotten. It arrived quickly with the entree right behind it. The food was excellent but the service definitely needs to be improved.More

Sono is a lovely little restaurant and bar specializing in sushi and other Japanese dishes, but also serves some traditional "Chinese food." The sushi is very good--fresh and good variety. The restaurant is attractive and the staff is attentive--a nice place for dinner. They offer...takeout and that is well-used by the community. We live nearby and get dinner there often. There is parking behind the restaurant, which is great as on-street parking can be difficult.More

The food is excellent: quality, taste and presentation. Sono also has a good variety of vines and other liquor. The seating is quite comfortable. If you like loud main stream music it's fabulous - if not you're glad about the silence at night after you...left.More

The atmosphere in this Japanese restaurant was more upscale with white cloth tablecloths & napkins. The modern vibe continued with lighting that changed colors (orange, green, etc.) beneath the ceiling in a section of the restaurant. I'm not talking about flashing neon lights; it was...tasteful. Although there were some Chinese dishes available, this is primarily a Japanese & sushi restaurant. The food was good with a nice presentation. I'm not a miso soup fan, but my husband said it was one of the best miso soups he'd ever had. Lastly, as this is not a large place, I was a little surprised at how much room was allotted to the bar area.More

This neighborhood gem was a most pleasant surprise. Great Japanese food served within a nice family setting. An extensive menu fairly priced. There is a small sushi bar.

We stopped in for a late lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the unusual rolls, attentive staff and club vibe. Low level lighting, strong martinis and delicious hamachi kama made it a place we will come back to.

We got delivery/take out which included California rolls and chicken teriyaki with white rice. The sushi was delicious, but the teriyaki was a little bland for my taste. The food arrived promptly, was packaged well, and the delivery man was friendly and efficient.

We went to try it after talking about it for a while. While it was good, it does not stand out. We will probably go back at some point.

We've ordered delivery from Sono twice in the last two weeks and are totally hooked. While I'd love to check out the restaurant, I am so happy to have the delivery option it may take a while! We've tried a variety of rolls, sushi pieces,...and tempura. I was skeptical about the tempura traveling well but it did quite nicely. The sushi is really fresh. Specialty rolls have all been tasty.More
