Enjoyed a very good lunch. They have several lunch specials and offer cooked food as well as sushi. A full bar with beer, wine, and liquor. The restaurant was clean and the staff was friendly. I started with a seaweed salad that was tasty. Not a large serving, but decent sized. The tuna and salmon sashimi I had were fresh,... More

If you're specifically seeking out good sushi, Tomo should be on your list. Every dish was really good, but the spider roll especially stood out.

Decided to grab dinner here after a long drive to Kentucky. We waited about 15 minutes and no one took our order. Finally about 10 long minutes after that someone came over and dryly apologized for the wait and finally took our order. The sushi was SO DELICIOUS but the the service is completely ridiculous and terrible.

This was my first lunch experience at Tomo, and it was delicious! Four of us shared the dashi tofu appetizer, and it was so nicely breaded and yummy. Two in our group ordered off the sushi menu, and my husband and I ordered off the regular lunch menu. I had the salmon/avocado roll and the spicy salmon roll. This lunch... More

While it's not Portland or Seattle or Miami, the sushi here is pretty good for a landlocked state. Not quite as good as Sugano though.

Cannot speak enough about Tomo. This was such a pleasant surprise cannot believe that they have such a sushi restaurant of this caliber in Lexington. I was informed that they get most of the fish flown in to Louisville because that is where UPS has there international hub. Do yourself a favor and sit at the bar and try some... More

We always order from the sushi menu here, but some of our dining companions get tempura and other regular menu items. The sushi fish is fresh, and you can watch the chef make your sushi if you'd like. The miso and seaweed salad are like most sushi places' and the hot sake is the ticket for a cold night.

The food is OK. Nothing great, by Lexington standards. The city has great sushi on account of Toyota. Having been to several, this place is average for food. Nothing great, but not bad. Just better options in the city. And for the prices, combined with the service, go elsewhere. The only benefit is that it's near Chevy Chase. But even... More

My family recently moved to Lexington. We have been wanting a great sushi restaurant and we have found it! Food was amazing and fresh. Service was excellent. We will definitely be back! We went last night but I could go back again tonight!
