This is a place I have wanted to visit for some time and finally had an opportunity to visit with my girlfriend. We were warmly welcomed and the place has a nice comfortable feel even when it is filled with customers. It does not seem to get too loud and the wait staff was very attentive and considerate. We started... More

This place has the very best sushi, Thai food, and Japanese food in a very soothing, quiet attractive atmosphere. Excellent service always, and especially good if you are feeling stressed. We are always pleased with every visit, and we like the brown rice option. We live in the area and dine here often.

This used to be one of my favorite Asian fusion restaurants in the west end of Alexandria. It took 2.5 hours for our food to be delivered! I was given a 1 - 1.5 hour estimated time. There was no follow up call from the restaurant. When we called they didn't offer a solution or a comp for the delivery.... More

Tonight's dinner at Yamazato was simply perfect. They have a stunning selection of sushi and sashimi (traditional and cooked or vegetarian), along with a great variety of Japanese and Thai entrees. The restaurant is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, with great staff. There is a bar with a variety of wine, saki, beer, and cocktails/mixed drinks. All in all, an excellent... More

We've seen this restaurant while driving about our neighborhood but thought from the exterior that it probably wasn't too fancy. Mistake! The inside is elegant, well-lit, quiet enough to have a conversation, and the food was delicious! We had miso soup and wonton soup (my fiance thought the latter was too salty, but for me it was simply delicious and... More

Very enjoyable dinner with ample serves of traditional Japanese and Thai cuisines. Around $40US per head, including drinks. Friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere.

There are a lot of cheap eats in the area but Yamazato offers better ambiance and good quality sushi at a reasonable price. Service was good and the restaurant was clean and have nice decor. Portion is not big with the nigri lunch combo so next time I think I'll try the other bento lunches.

Auuuughhhhllllll (Homer Simpson drool)... I've eaten here several times and the sushi is delicious and fresh-tasting. I'm not a fan of the brown rice sushi, white rice tastes much better, in my opinion. Dragon Fire - deeeeelicious! Rock & Roll - hit the spot! Not cheap, but you get a lot of rolls.

Sushi on the menu was super standard stuff. Don't get me wrong, it was good for what it was. Nothing stood out as great however. The lettuce wraps were very spicy and the texture of their filling was like chewed up chicken. My wife and I are not food snobs by any means but we are genuine fat kids at... More

We have been going to Yamazato happily for many years, but our dinner last night was not up to par. The Spicy Ahi Tuna is usually barely seared and very flavorful - my fave at this restaurant. But, last night it was overcooked and very bland, too much lettuce on the plate, just not the same. Wonder if it has... More
