Love Umi Sake House!
Came to Umi for girl's night and had so much fun! Great food, atmosphere, service, and drinks =) The happy hour specials rocked, great variety and perfect portion sizes. We will definitely be coming back!

The quality of the Sushi we
The quality of the Sushi we had was very good. Also have a nice selection of entree and small plate items. Also a nice and creative list of cocktails,Sake and Wine. Service was ok but seem to be a little over worked. But I would recommend. I also felt the prices were fair for the offerings.TG Associated Press

They could increase the number
They could increase the number of waiters. One person was having to handle too many and at times it did appear chaotic, right from the time you arrived to the time you got served.

I've never had such fresh sushi! The rolls were not packed with rice; you could actually taste the seafood! We've been back twice. I got the First Ave roll and the Belltown Barbie both times!! Only negative about it is its very crowded so definitely make a reservation and its a little loud - hard to hear the other persons you're with. However that will not stop me from going back!!

Same Great Sushi
Umi's is such a great location for great sushi - maybe one of the best in Seattle. I love their tropical paradise roll, the street fighter, the caterpillar and the moonraker; however, their tuna/salmon tower wasn't as good as it was the last time and it seems they may have changed the recipe slightly. I also missed their salmon (three varieties) drizzled in truffle oil.
Overall, I will continue to enjoy a night at Umi's!

Delicious vegetraian choices!
We are vegetarians so often Sushi options, in general, for us are limited. But a friend recommended this place, and we had a very good experience. We went on a weekday for dinner and the place was super crowded. The food was awesome especially their "Tofu Ginger" appetizer, and the "Green Decadence" rolls that we had. We also tried that Black sesame ice-cream and Green tea tiramisu. I think the green tea tiramisu is an acquired taste, I love green tea flavor and am a fan of Tiramisu so I loved it, but my husband who does not like either was not as appreciative :) Our waiter was good, but she was super fast in taking the dishes away from our table so we felt a little rushed. Overall a great restaurant and worth re-visiting!

Amazing sushi! And gluten free too!
I really love sushi, but since going gluten free, most sushi restaurants are off limits. But not Umi! Thy make their rice the traditional way and also have gf soy sauce. Our server was very knowledgable about gluten free.
I also loved their amazing selection of different rolls and fresh fish.

Love the sushi. Service was poor.
We have eaten here several times. I would have to say its our favorite sushi in the area. This visit the service was fair to poor. We tried ordering a bottle of saki in a specific price range and they were out of most bottles. The one we went with the server had initially dissuaded us from. It was still tasty but the process took about a half hour. Our food then took a really long time. We ordered 4 rolls one came in about 10 min, then it was about 20 min for the next two. Finally another 20-30 min later the last one came. They ended up comping the last roll which was really nice of them. All in all we'll be back for the sushi, it just wasn't our best experience this time.

Fresh and delicious specialty rolls
We got several specialty rolls, which were all delicious. The service was a bit slow, but it was very crowded. I made reservations and got right in. The sushi was very fresh tasting. I docked it a star because I have been to other places which showed a bit more creativity in their roll design and recipe, but I would highly recommend this place to others.
