    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

    We've been to Umi several times, and it's consistently good!

    Miso soup should never be served with a spoon. Enough said.

    They have *incredible* food and service- even at the bar! The sashimi of chef's choice was an amazing experience of flavors.

  • Love M.

    Too much msg, mirin, and rice vinegar. Food comes out slow and so does your check and your credit card.

    Gotta try the sashimi and cucumber whiskey cocktail!

  • Alaa S.

    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.

  • Pat K.

    Super fast on a Friday night. Try the street fighter roll, it's definitely legit.

    Pat K. · November 29, 2014

    Sit at the sushi bar after 11am. Great service and atmosphere.

    Fantastically creative yet seemingly authentic at the same time some how. Great chirashi and special ❤️beet roll!

  • Lisa H.

    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

    Vishnu Nath · September 13, 2014

    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.

    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.

    Reyghina · August 10, 2014
  • Roger S.

    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.

    Roger Schonfeld · August 8, 2014
  • meru

    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!
