Opened in 2014 to a 4.5 Star review from the Baltimore Sun, Azumi is located on Baltimore's Inner Harbor in the elegant Four Seasons Hotel. With picturesque panoramic waterfront views, Azumi offers authentic Japanese cuisine with a strong focus on sushi matched with an amazing "hot kitchen." Azumi's Sake and Japanese Whiskey program is one of the largest in the region. Named the city's best Japanese restaurant by Baltimore Magazine, Azumi is also one of the hottest spots for nightlife in the city featuring a live DJ on weekends. Enjoy outdoor dining on our patio which overlooks the Inner Harbor.

Azumi’s highly-skilled teppanyaki / hibachi chefs are on display in our new FLAME ROOM as they cook the highest-quality meats, seafood, vegetables & rice on a solid-surface iron griddle right before your eyes in this intimate & interactive dining experience.

Please call the restaurant to book parties of 9 and larger or for additional reservation assistance.

I visited Azumi for a birthday date on a Friday and had a great time. I had such a good time that I wanted to return with friends the following day. I scheduled a late reservation because we planned to only have cocktails. We ran a little late and were told that they could not let us in.

The dining room was near empty, the bar area has people in it but it wasn’t packed. But because of COVID, I understand why she said it was full.

While I do feel like they could have sat us in the dining room and allowed us to have cocktails, I know how to play by the rules, but the rules have to be consistent. My friend went 10 minutes later and was seated.

My friends and I had already left and went to Maximon and had a great time. My issue with Azumi is that the host and the manager were incredibly rude and dismissive. They lacked the high quality customer service that should come with an upscale dining environment. The hostess seemed on edge and the manager was just not a pleasant person and tried to avoid interacting with us directly. It’s safe to say, this is probably a case by case situation. But I was not pleased with my experience this night.

Expensive, but you get what you pay for. The food is amazing and the service is very good as well. The mixed drinks menu is lacking, but overall a 4/5 experience! We had reservations through OpenTable for 4 for a birthday and we will be returning.

Had the table behind us fight another table. The A5 wagyu was amazing but everything was overpriced and witnessing 4 fights at the restaurant was pathetic. Would not recommend this overpriced restaurant to anyone sadly.

Living between NY and Baltimore since Azumi opened, it has been my go to and consistent place for great sushi and service in Baltimore ... over the past 7 years, I’ve entertained many people to celebrate birthdays, good times and special moments. Tonight was utterly unacceptable and completely disappointing. 2 weeks ago, management slipped me a card and said please let us know whatever you need and whenever you need a table. Tonight, complete apathy, after a disorganized, non communicative service experience. Atlas Group, you let a strong and faithful customer down. NG

Fresh, wonderful sushi and sashimi.
Hip atmosphere.
Really only the loud music was a negative. Not cheap. But, worth it for a special evening.

The food was wonderful. However, their ability to stick to COVID guidelines was horrendous. We arrived at 8:15 and the place seemed approximately at 50% capacity...not the 25% capacity Baltimore is allowed right now, but it wasn't so much a big deal to me. There were "Reserved for social distancing" signs at about every other table. By 9 pm, those signs were gone and every single table was filled with people. Not to mention a very loud table behind us which the wait staff stood with talking, masks down, and taking shots. For what we paid to eat there, I am hoping I also did not pay to get exposed to COVID simply because this restaurant doesn't care about its guests.

Azumi is an excellent dining experience. The food, staff, and service were overall very good. However, if I were to add one critique, if you aren't careful you can become quickly overwhelmed with food. The courses are served very quickly. Before you've finished one course you are being served two more. Also, it is not the cheapest place in town but if you are looking for a great place for a special evening, I highly recommend Azumi.
