The restaurant it self is very nice looking and cool that it is four floors. But the service was horrible . I ordered two things pancakes and sushi. My sushi did not arrive until 5 mins before our check came. Pretty much after everyone else at my table was done eating. Waitress did not seem to care that orders were mixed up or that my food had not come out yet. She didnt check on us to make sure everything was ok. Very bad service on her part and the restaurant.

I take a group of 8 high school art students here every year after a field trip as a culminating experience to discuss what we learned... They seat us on the third floor & it is quiet enough for us to hear one another. We always have a diverse group. Some order the sushi, others order the kobe burgers. There's a variety of salads, fried food,etc. to keep high school palettes happy... and it is affordable. It isn't the best food I have had, but it certainly isn't bad by any means. Their sweet flavored coffees are a big hit. Sugar cookie & gingerbread coffee was passed around the table with a series of "yums" & "God...try this one!". (-; Our waitress even went next door to get macaroni for a picky eater, since it wasn't on the menu. It is right down the street from Maryland Institute College of Art, & perfect for students. I am so glad a MICA student suggested it!

A great menu andambience, and must mention spectacular desserts
baked on the premises. Was worth going to if it was just for the strawberry shortcake! Fresh whipped cream and fresh strawberried on a wonderful yellow cake.

We went to XS for dinner around 7pm. Wish the restaurant ambience was as cool as their website.

We ordered appetizers, sushi, nigiri and rolls,

The sushi deluxe (10 pcs) that promised chefs selection was probably the worst of the lot becoz it consisted of tune, salmon and shrimp only. Every other sushi place in DC MD or Va that i have been to actually offers 10 different nigiris.

The rolls were ok, nothing spectacular.

Probably steer clear from the infused iced teas as well, go for their cocktails/mocktails.

After 8pm, the dj provides cool jazzy tunes. Probably the best part of the experience.

The website is fabulous, check it out if you have time, but very misleading. This is basically a space between 2 old buildings that's had a front and back added. The 2nd level is just 3 tables for 4 and the 4th level looked as though it had 4 tables. Service was lousy. The waitress brought us soda that was flat and knew it so she took it off the bill when we complained. The unagi was extremely fishy tasting, but since the waitress disappeared after delivering our food, we weren't able to tell her until the end of the meal (not an apology or any comment or action). The sauce for our appetizer was cold, my 'hot' sandwich was luke warm when it arrived. Won't bother going back.
