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.

I was looking forward to eating at this place as I have seen some good reviews for it. The area is quite nice and the restaurant itself was beautiful with a great view of the inner harbor. The ambiance was also good, perfect for a date night. We ordered the tempura, hand roll tasting, and a couple of specialty rolls. The tempura was not as crunchy as I expected to be and the rolls were both pretty plain. It tasted like we were just eating plain rice and seaweed with no other fillings. The handrolls were probably the best out of everything we ordered, but still nothing amazing. I have to admit that the quality of the fish itself was spectacular, but the flavor was just not there unfortunately. Overall, it was quite expensive for what it was.

Azumi remains one of our favorites in Baltimore. The food is outstanding. Beautifully prepared, each dish is like a work of art. Creative and delicious. Wide range of offerings.
Great drinks and bar.
Scott was a perfect server. We basically asked him to select the dishes and he got it right. He kept bringing one after the other and one better than the one before...straight through very complimentary desserts.
A bit noisier than we remember; however, the booth allowed us to be separated comfortably.
Pricey but excellent value for a wonderful culinary experience and great evening.
Shared the experience with friends which allowed us to taste it all!

Honestly the staff is great. Very friendly and attentive. My server was great knew the menu and was very good. However for the price and the amount you get is not worth it. My sushi came out warm because It was fresh sticky rice. My fried rice was alright but there was no flavor but the spicy sauce around it. The restaurant is so dark I could barely see the menu. Cocktails were good. Overall the staff is great but the food is lackluster and very overpriced.

We ordered the Azumi Royal Platter, which is a little on the pricey side, but was delicious, particularly the sushi and sashimi. The fish was unbelievably fresh and had a wonderful flavor. I would definitely order again.

Good quality is still top notch sushi, the portion size has been reduced tremendously but the prices are still the same. I love uni and compared to pre-pandemic the uni nigiri is about 1/4 of the portion size for a market price of $24 still. Everything about Azumi’s quality and service is still 5 star but reducing the portion size and keeping the same prices really rubbed me the wrong way.

The ambiance is nice, it’s a great place for any occasion. Whether it be gathering with friends, alone at the bar for a lychee martini or a date night. It’s kind of pricy but the food is good. I recommend the lobster fried rice, & sushi.

We love sitting on the patio overlooking the Inner Harbor. Carolina took wonderful care of us. Good service is hard to come by these days, but not at Azumi. The food was delicious. The pork gyoza was perfectly cooked and the wrapper was so delicate. The sashimi is fresh and sliced expertly. The rockfish tempura is a winning appetizer.

Excellent food, fresh and well executed. The restaurant is beautiful and the outside area a real plus. This place makes Baltimore look great. Service was not great as servers bickered with each other in front of us, could not manage to come by to deliver some water or to offer another drink/wine glass. Easy fixes! Otherwise a perfect experience and can’t wait to go back!
