    A sexy and sophisticated sushi lounge, Oya offers a great happy hour with discounted sushi, snacks and cocktails. Even better: It runs until 8 p.m. Read more

    Modern-Contempory Ambience worth the trip and the Sushi is excellent. Regular Menu items range from fair to excellent. Excessive Sake menu and limited wine menu but amazing cocktail/drink menu

    Superb. The sushi is out of this world. At lunch, try the Chirashi bowl - fresh and clean flavors. Not to mention the restaurant itself is stunning. :)

    OYA is a wonderful place. Up there with my favorite sushi place in DC, Sushi Taro on 17th and P. But still a bit below my cousins place in Tokyo. See attached link. Read more

    I always say the amazing food could be gross; I would still go to get awesome drinks and be in a beautiful atmosphere. Ask for Charles.

    Pretty tasty. I loved the spicy crunchy shrimp and the sticky ribs. The shiso whiskey cocktail is also amazing.

    Huge selection of Regional American Craft Wine. The Texas Tempranillo is perfect with lamb or try the Shindig FInger Lakes white with sushi.

    Got the short rib sushi for happy hour. It was heartwarming--tender, flavorful meat, topped with mashed potato.

    $20 3-course lunch has a ton of options. It's a great, tasty deal if you're in the area on a weekday.

    The Hibachi Jalepeno rolls are really good. Perfect place for a Sunday date night. Great ambiance, lighting and privacy.

    A top spot in DC with eclectic wines from around the USA. Texas Tempranillo or Arizona Syrah anyone?

    If you go for happy hour, expect for the WHOLE group to be charged as one. (Even if you aren't at a table). One of the laziest practices ever. Peach bourbon drink is good. Awful customer service.

    Go to Oya. Order one of their unique sushi rolls..think meat and potatoes rather than fish. Make sure to get a darker and stormier while you're at it.
