    We had a lovely meal, prepared traditionally. We mixed appetizers and sushi, plus a seaweed salad. The sushi was fresh including the Hokkaido uni. An appetizer I especially liked consisted of thin slices of fish layered atop slender potato sticks. Our sake began slightly sweet and finished dry. All this with attentive staff and a fair price point. I’ll be back.

    This was a quick stop dinner, and everything was great. Quick seating, friendly staff, good food, and a decent price. My only complaint would be that some dishes were not consistent from one bite to the next, but you'd have to paying a lot of attention.

    After reading Tom Sietsema’s (https://wapo.st/4a3Wegi) review, we just had to visit. And Takara 14 did not disappoint. We came to celebrate a birthday and were treated like VIPs the moment we arrived. Although, everyone is treated that way in the cozy, cherry blossom tree house of a dining room overlooking 14th Street. We ordered the chef’s tasting menu and were treated to an unforgettable several hour, multi-course feast. What an outstanding experience. Highly recommended.

    We wanted to try this place because of the variety of items and cooking styles in their menu. Service was excellent but the food fell short in execution. An uni/squid selection we wanted to try was not available ( no squid on a thursday night) and the scallop substitute dressed with ponzu lacked flavor as hard as that would seem to be. Gyoza were well cooked but the filling oddly bland while the bed of cabbage salad with sesame dressing was the star of the dish. The sushi rolls we had used intriguing ingredients yet tasted either odd or bland. Overall interesting ingredient selection but poor execution made it a run of the mill sushi bar.

    The staff were so attentive, food absolutely delicious and one of the owners Janis was so thoughtful and kind. She ensured that not only we had a wonderful culinary experience but she took time to just chat with us and get to know her diners (nothing overbearing or intruding but just genuine conversation) which makes the entire experience feel so much more intimate.

    This is the 3rd time my girlfriend and I have gone and have absolutely loved our experience. The service is great and the staff is so personable. We have done chef's tasting each time and have enjoyed it everytime. You can taste the freshness of the ingredients, the care of crafting each dish, and the love that the staff puts into their art. Without a doubt a great date night spot. We will be going back soon.

    Fantastic experience. I recommend sitting at the sushi bar and talking to chef Johnny. He’ll teach you all about the different cuts and preparations. The “trust the chef” menu option is fantastic. Dont think about it, just let Johnny make you a plate. The sushi sashimi platter was enough food for one person if you are hungry
