Once again a perfect sushi evening. Thanks to all for making our dinner a lovely one. The fish is incredibly fresh. The hot sake was a perfect drink on a very cold and snowy evening.

First time and it was good overall . Gréât table by the windows . The server didn’t introduce himself and wasn’t very personable. Took the check after It was paid and we are not sure if he said goodbye or thanks .
Food overall was good and fresh and the ambiance was lively ( very good music too )
Not cheap but you do pay for quality

We had a wonderful lunch at Azumi. The pork gyoza was perfectly pan-fried. The sashimi was so fresh and expertly prepared. The tempura was delicately fried and greaseless. The cocktails were well balanced. The delicious food was complemented by Carl, our fabulous server. Carl made great suggestions, was attentive and kind. A great dining experience.

This was probably the best sushi I’ve ever had. The sauces were a lovely alternative to the ubiquitous soy sauce at other sushi places. I was disappointed not to get the hot towels before the meal, particularly during these Covid times. Maybe that’s passé. The kitchen kept sending us the wrong dishes, but our server handled it well and comped a couple of items.

Great ambience, great drinks - went for my birthday dinner. Our table decided to do the tasting menu. The runners brining out our courses were very quiet and we could barely hear the names of the courses. Also, we had no idea what number course we were on. The timing of the courses coming out was sporadic and several times we received 2 courses at once (I’m not sure if this was intentional or not, but it felt rushed). Also, the bathroom floors were slippery and when I went to wash my hands the faucet was very powerful and sprayed me with water. For the cost of the dinner, I feel as though our service should have been much better.

Positives of the night: incredible old fashioned and the best espresso martini I’ve ever had.

We had the 12 course Omakase menu and the food and service were outstanding. The Sake menu is extensive but most of the selection is very pricey. Nonetheless, we keep returning to Azumi, as the experience is one to remember. Just come in famished if you go for the 12 course menu.

Food was absolutely amazing. The nigiri was breathtaking. Our veggie roll was simple, but sublime.


We were placed at a table by the employee locker room and then ignored. Another table was seated after us and we watched them place their order while we hadn't even been greeted. Our server was very pleasant, but we noted other servers leaving from their shift while she explained her absence was because she was the only server left working.

Amazing food, subpar service.

I walked in to a beautiful ambience where I was promptly greeted at the host station by a darling young lady that greeted us and confirmed our reservation. I ordered a couple of cocktails and some sake to pair with many of the menu items I order. The Scottish Salmon and lambchop are must haves. I also love the tempura tiger prawn cooked to perfection. I also loved the lobster fried rice. To be honest there wasn't anything I didn't enjoy. After speaking with Matthew Straub, I was sure I would be back as I was greatly pleased on my first visit.

A friend and I went to Azumi to celebrate her birthday.

She had the chicken thigh appetizer and chicken fried rice as an entree. I had a combination of appetizers - spicy tuna roll, miso soup and sautéed mushrooms. We enjoyed our dinner. The mushrooms were salty, but enjoyable.

We parked in the garage near Four Seasons because valet was not available at the restaurant.

I’d refer Azumis to anyone…over and over again. The service and ambiance is stellar!

I reserved a table about 6-7 weeks beforehand through Opentable. Specifically a window table. When I got there, the hostess said none was available and tried to seat us at the bar area. If we wanted, we were graciously offered a window table an hour after our original reservation time, which I reserved almost two months ago. Ok?

All of the food was slightly above average. Kind of salty but decent. But all of it was rushed, with the appetizers and entrees being delivered at the same time. We were at the restaurant for about 65 minutes from the time we walked in to when we left.

Overall a poor experience. Me and my girlfriend spent over 250 dollars for the evening (we got a bottle of sake also) but it felt like they couldn’t wait to get us out and flip the table. Lesson learned. I guess they don’t want customers like us.

We won’t be back. If this is representative of the business practices of the restaurant group that owns Azumi, I probably won’t patronize any of those establishments in the future either.

Loved the entire experience - delicious food, great staff, beautiful location and restaurant. It was dimly lit so definitely on the list for Date Night. The parking garage around the corner was not bad price, although I went mid week. Definitely recommend.

Never disappoints. We have been visiting Azumi for years now, and it is the best place for Sushi/Nigiri/Sashimi in Baltimore. We have tried them all and this place is by far the best. Super fresh and so tasty.

The food was too salty for us. I asked for the edamame to be lightly salted and if was very salty with flakes. If it had not been so salty it would have been delicious. The tiger pawn was too greasy, as well as the fired rice. However, the atmosphere was great! Loved the interior and location on the water.
