Sakedokoro Makoto

General Information

Since opening in 1992,  Sakedokoro Makoto has offered an exclusive Japanese dining experience to the DC Metro area and has been recognized nationally as one of the best restaurants in America.  

Sakedokoro means "Place of Sake" and Makoto simply means, Harmony.  

We serve an Omakase or Pre Fixe Menu for dinner. Our menu can change daily but most certainly changes with the seasons.  We serve Sushi during our lunch hours but usually only do a Sashimi course for dinner.  If you are looking for Sushi, I recommend Kotobuki, an affiliated restaurant upstairs on the 3rd floor.

Our lunch consists of Bento Box (which changes often), grilled fish & Sashimi.  All items are A La Carte.

House Rules:

Mobile Devices - Mobile/Cell phone ringers must be turned off.  Please do not make or take any phone calls once inside our dining room. Texting, browsing & taking photos are welcome. The use of portable computing devices such as tablets and laptops are strictly prohibited.  

Please do consider the amount of perfume or cologne you wear as they can be intrusive to others dinning with you and can alter the taste of the food.
