Matsutake sits next to security in the center of Reagan National Airport. The fish is fresh, nicely prepared and quite tasty. Tempura was very good, as well. I have eaten here several times, and in the one at Dulles, as well, with no complaints.

This place is just next to security at Ronald Reagan airport. Eating sashimi at an airport - mad, right? However, needs must and - Whoa! It's wonderful - huge chunks of very fresh fish. We're not innovating here, just doing it perfectly. I was genuinely shocked.

Landing at National and don't want to cook / eat out? Get the take-out. Well prepared and properly packed including a small cup for the soy sauce packets. Even after traveling and sitting in the refrigerator the sushi rolls and nigiri were very tasty.

Overall a few good experience and surprisingly good Japanese food considering their captive audience. I will go back next time I have a layover.

Been here WAY too many times. It is at DCA outside security. Great staff, and food is fresh and beautifully prepared. It is a planned stop if schedule allows!

Ingredients are very fresh and everything prepared wonderfully. Having said that...wow are the portions small and wow is it not cheap for the... More

I just passed through security and was resigned to having some of the airline club fare, when I happened past this restaurant. I thought, "another sushi place in a restaurant." But it caught my eye, and I noticed a sushi counter and chef in the back. So I checked out the menu and was very impressed. I had a seat,... More

I've actually eaten at Matsutake several times, but had never rated it previously. It is a great place to eat if you're at the airport and have a hour available before your flight. It is just outside of the American Airlines security gate, so you have to make time to make your flight. Having said that, the restaurant understands there... More
