Umi is a sophisticated twist on the Japanese Izakaya style of informal eating and drinking. The design of the restaurant mirrors a Japanese country house. The menu highlights the sake list through a wide range of Japanese and Pan-Asian dishes, sushi rolls and raw bar.
Amazing amazing sushi even better than Shiro. Must try Monalisa rolls
Tomato Tofu!! Just loved it 😍
Order the crunchy Seattle roll ! Soooo good during happy hour
Good sushi, even better during happy hour. Lots of room, short wait even without reservations.
Went late for happy hour. Some of the best sashimi I've ever had. Had the Sushi set A and the Seattle roll. The prawn appetizer was delicious too!
Ask to sit out in the outdoor/skylight area during the day. A ton of light comes in and there's a garden with a small waterfall. A very peaceful, calming environment.
Late night happy hour starts at 11p! As expected, the sake list is long and fun to explore
Best sushi I've ever had!
My friend and I kept high giving each other during this meal because it was so good. Everything is delicious. Sake menu rocks.
Vegetable sushi is top notch! Great flavors and great plating. Fish is super fresh. Definitely coming back for more.
We've been to Umi several times, and it's consistently good!
Miso soup should never be served with a spoon. Enough said.
Don't miss out on the happy hour from 4-6 daily.
Happy hour makes the fresh sashimi super affordable! Ends at 8pm
Server wasn't very helpful.
They have *incredible* food and service- even at the bar! The sashimi of chef's choice was an amazing experience of flavors.
Too much msg, mirin, and rice vinegar. Food comes out slow and so does your check and your credit card.
happy hour everyday 4-8pm at the bar! $5 rolls and $8 for 5 pieces of sashimi, free edamame. green tea tiramisu was very good.
Sushi, shrimp tempura, Dragon roll, California roll, short ribs
Gotta try the sashimi and cucumber whiskey cocktail!
Nice place, great service. Wasn't impressed w/ the sushi though. Aside from the Americanized-vs-authentic argument, the sauces added were too watery. That made the inside soggy & the rice fall apart.
Super fast on a Friday night. Try the street fighter roll, it's definitely legit.
Sit at the sushi bar after 11am. Great service and atmosphere.
Happy Hour 4-8. Sushi & Sake- That is all.
Awesome happy hour!
Excellent quality sushi.
Fantastically creative yet seemingly authentic at the same time some how. Great chirashi and special ❤️beet roll!
Unclear why this is as highly rated as it is. Sushi is good but not great. Server knowledge of sake lacking.
Amazing sushi rolls. Hotter than hell roll is great
Cool ambiance, interesting restroom doors. Restaurant is fairly large and areas will be opened and closed as needed. Great sake selection and the salmon flight, when offered, is excellent.
Sushi ipa sashimi:-)
Chill spot with okay japanese food. Really nice grilled fish though!
Salmon sashimi. Get it.
Lots of fun rolls, cool atmosphere.
I'm in love with the crunchy seattle roll. It's the best sushi yet! Definitely one of my favorite spots in Belltown :)
Salmon: always delicious.
Went during their happy hours which is every day ( even saturday and sunday). Food was good and they have selection of japanese sake and beer.
Shocking ignorance of sake given the place's name. Nice fish, but no sushi master in evidence so for example "omakase" comes as a sampler set rather than piece by piece. Fun but not a destination.
Impressed w the extensive food & drink menu. Quality of sashimi was great! Hotter Than Hell roll - yummy & spicy! Orange Crush Roll was nice & sweet! Super cute place! Definitely recommend!
Best sushi I've ever had.
Legends of the Rolls, Casino Royale, Rockstar.
One of the best places I've had sushi in Seattle. Get the butterfly roll

The Belltown Barbie roll was huge (and the BEST sushi I've had in my life). Plus this place was right by my hostel! Cheers for Belltown!
Happy jour has great prices. The shrimp tempura roll is delicious!
Get a table in the back! Awesome sushi and of course miso soup is sooo good!
The Asari miso soup is delicious!
Awesome sushi. Highly reccommend. Happy hour is a must. Get there early or make a resy. These guys are always busy.
