The food is good, miso soup, sushi and fried rice all very good. The price is in the high end. We visited for a late lunch and it was extremely quiet, we had the restaurant to us. We will return and do not hesitate to recommend.

Ryheem R was our waiter. He made the experience absolutely amazing. Wonderful customer service and overall attentive. It was my and my friends first visit. The food and ambiance was delightful. I couldn't understand why they charge $3 to put your alcohol on ice but that was,my only complaint. I would definitely eat here again.

I have been to Azumi multiple times - excellent sushi, pricey (the cost of flying it in). This time sushi was again excellent as was the beef and miso black cod (Nobu's signature dish). Beautiful setting by the water and our service was outstanding. The deserts were beautiful in appearance but blah - we will skip next time.

Extremely expensive for the amount of food. Fish was fresh and well prepared, presentation was very good, but cost was very high and the portions were tiny. No wow factor in terms of taste to make up for being very expensive and not providing adequate quantity of food. Leaving hungry after paying 360$ for 2 people is not acceptable.

We felt safe from the moment we entered (even though there was no one in sight to check us in and we had to go hunting for staff).

We were seated at an appropriate social distant from other diners. Our server, Tessa, was AMAZING! She was friendly, kept us well stocked with hot tea, and was incredibly gracious.

I took a friend from DC who was impressed.

This was our first time here and our visit was outstanding! Our server, Mason, was very attentive, personable, and knowledgeable of the items on the menu. The Flaming King Crab Roll was definitely my favorite - presentation and taste are a 10+! I started with the Rock Shrimp Tempura, which comes over a bed of baby lettuce and it was really tasty! The baby lettuce with the shrimp paired well!

My husband and I also had our 4 year-old daughter with us; however, be aware that the restaurant does not have a menu specifically for kids. With that, we ordered her a bowl of Vegetable Fried Rice but she did not like it (I did though - the red sauce around the plate was so good paired with the rice!). Our daughter let Mason know she did not like the vegetable fried rice and he brought her out a bowl of white rice (she didn't eat that either).

The vibe at Azumi is grown 'n sexy - lots and lots of candles and dim lights. There is seating outdoors, as well as inside - we sat inside. There are also plenty of heaters throughout the patio outside, too, so no need to worry about being cold. Next time my husband and I visit, we will definitely be kid-free and said we'd like to sit outside to enjoy to water views. 'Til next time Azumi!

If I have a complaint, which is a stretch to find one, it is that the club music deterred from the overall experience. Otherwise, this would probably be my number 1 spot in Baltimore. The 12 course tasting menu was worth every penny and a killer value at that. Perhaps the best steak I have ever tasted was served as one of the two entrees and I will never be able to taste sushi the same way again. Service was damn near perfect: attentive while not overbearing. Honestly one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. Just find some music that isn’t tangential to the overall atmosphere and then it probably will be the best. We’ll be back to try out the new teppanyaki room and put the number 1 spot up for grabs again.

My wife and I had an amazing experience at Bygone two nights before going to Azumi. Frankly, we canceled reservations somewhere else to go here instead as recommended by our Bygone server. Initially, the food was delicious and well presented and our initial server was good. However, due to Maryland Covid regulations, at 10 pm we had to vacate the main dining area. We had just ordered drinks and were told we could take them to the bar area. When we went outside with our drinks we stood by an open spot at the bar. Not even 10 seconds had passed when a gentleman dressed in a suit behind the bar brusquely told my wife and I that we could not “just stand at the bar”. I tried to explain to him that we had just come out of the main dining area and he just interrupted us and said that we needed to leave. Given that it was my wife’s birthday weekend, and I’m not into making scenes, we placed our full drinks at the bar and went back up to our room at the Four Seasons. I’m still not sure what triggered his reaction, but needless to say, this tainted our whole experience that night. Quite different from the service we received at the Bygone.

This was one of our best dining experiences for Japanese cuisine. Each course was perfect and simply delicious. We went based on my sister’s recommendation who lives in Baltimore, and she did not lie about the quality of the food. I also enjoyed the dance electronica music, which is one of my favorite genres. It kept me in a great mood and moving in between my courses. If you want very fresh sushi and high-quality food with a nice presentation, then Azumi is the place for you.
