I really did not feel relaxed at this bar-restaurant.
The staff are obnoxious and arrogant, looking down on your like they are guests and not you!
I'm sure they are not professionals already accustomed.
So there is still sushi bars in Georgetown...

Mate is the coolest restaurant nightclub in Georgetown if not all of DC. Sushi is great/the music is alive/the vibe is so cool. Drinks are excellent also

Had a great couple of cocktails here. Entertaining barman. Had a dirty matti in and my wife had a caiprinha, both spot on. Some witty interludes with the barman made for a nice hour or two. Really nice decor and moody lighting added to the ambience.

Visited Mate with a friend pre-theater and found the restaurant/lounge to be very stylish and sleekly designed. There was a great crowd and energy in the restaurant. Treat yourself to scallop ceviche, a blood orange martini and a fantastic "Gaucho" sushi roll.

The menu was great and with an Argentine flair and the service was outstanding!! Fantastic place pre-theater, movies next door at AMC Lowes Cinema and just a stroll down from the great Georgetown shopping.

A friend and I went to Maté tonight and the host informed us that there would be a 15-20 minute wait for a table, or we could eat at the bar. I told him we had a Groupon and he said that was fine, so we opted for the bar.

The drinks were mediocre but the sushi was pretty good. Fine for happy hour prices, or so I thought. When we asked for the check, the server rolled his eyes and called the manager over, who then DOUBLED the price of everything we ordered and said that the Groupon did NOT apply, even though there was nothing in the small print that said so and the host had lied to us. I will NEVER go back to this restaurant again!!!
