  • "I have eaten here on several occasions now, and I have to say that this is the best Japanese Restaurant I've eaten at in Chicago. The food is outstanding, especially the Teriyaki Chilean Sea Bass and any of the Makis (my favorite is the Rainbow). Behind the unassuming storefront near Irving Park and California lies a chic and modern, yet comfortable, space. Umi offers everything you would ever want in a great restaurant, including easy parking. It's also BYOB, so bring your favorite bottle of wine and have a fantastic and memorable experience at Umi!"

  • "I intended to take my my here for her birthday, Only to find out that they had been shut down by the city of chicago. Not sure why they were shut down or when they'll be back open, but i will definitely not be returning."

  • "I have been here many times, in fact I really enjoy this place, and clearly have enjoyed it time and time again. As usual the food and service was very good. I brought a co-worker for lunch to show off a new place for them to dine at. However, the restaurant felt as though I was sitting in a sauna ... not good when you're thinking sushi. I swear it was cooler outside, in the middle of July on a 90+ degree day, than it was inside. I'm hopeful that they have since fixed the situation so I can go back and enjoy a comfortable meal soon!"
