I don't understand all the hype -
1. Overpriced for typical sushi - nothing outstanding.
2. Dress code makes no sense - watched a guy come in with a playboy t-shirt on and another guy with cargo shorts and a baseball hat, but they don't allow women with a very nice outfit that includes trendy ripped jeans
3. Server knocked over a glass of wine and it shattered to the floor - no replacement wine.
4. Meh - won't be back.

My 11 year old wanted to eat somewhere very special. She spent over a year in the house because of the pandemic and she was a little sad.

Our waitress was not only beautiful on the outside, she was amazing. She listened to my daughter snd gave great suggestions. This restaurant will start a new tradition in our family. Every time we come to Baltimore, we will eat our first dinner here.

Raheim was our server and Tony was the busser. The hostess from the front door was great. I used to work for Ritz Carlton....I would have to say the restaurant exceeded our expectations.

Love everything about this place! The view is breathtaking and the outside bar gives you a Miami/vacation vibe. Cocktails are made to perfection and loved Flaming King Crab Roll, which is literally served on a plate of fire! Will definitely be returning.

The food was great, however the portion sizes were pretty small. I think Azumi would benefit from creating actual meals such as rice, meat, and sushi roll of your choice at a set price. Other than that, the experience was amazing.

Service was excellent. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Food was fantastic. We had the omakase and, even though most courses were two bites (some were way more), it really filled you up very nicely. The taste and quality were top-notch. I think for the amount and quality of the food, the omakase is a great value. I should also mention it includes a dessert course at the end as well, and it was out of this world! We will definitely return.

Simply put...blown away every time.

If it's not too hot, sit outside. Best summertime reservation hours between 7pm and 8pm (personal opinion)

Food was impeccable. Flavors were so delectably on point.

Must try:
- Matsushima
- Yellowtail Jalapeno (very mildly spicy)
- Japanese Wagyu (which no matter how much I try I cannot pronounce properly)
- Calamari
- Rock shrimp Tempura

Ambiance is on the louder side. Plan on raising your voice to be heard, if you're not next to the person you're talking to.

Food at Azumi was excellent, as was the wait staff. Just coming out of Covid lockdowns, there were food and alcohol selections on the menu that were not available. That said, we would definitely go back as the sushi we ordered was fresh and beautifully prepared and presented.

Made a reservation for a birthday dinner with family visiting from my home country. They did not full fill my reservation. I was not allowed in because of their “dress code” even after speaking with a manager. However, they allowed two guys in short sweats right in front of me. They were also other guys in same type of pants without belt loops. I’m a girl who does not wear jeans or a dress, but was turned around. I’ve dined in before in the same outfit and type of pants. I was not happy with the type of service I received from the beginning at the door. Probably won’t return again. If they are to enforce the dress code it should be fair all around.

We were a party of 6 who did the 4 course (12 dishes) omakase tasting for $125 per person. The food was delicious but we had to wait an hour between the third and fourth course. All three dishes in the fourth course were presented to us at once, overwhelming the table, instead of spreading them out like the other two courses. We had to hurry and eat three dishes before any of them went cold. The servers never told us what we were eating, so we had to ask and they were mostly unsure. Our server, though very nice, kept disappearing for long periods of time, which left us wondering what was happening with our multi-course meal experience. I recommend that Azumi train their servers to present the dishes at a balanced pace and formally present each dish to the table; that would make the omakase a much more pleasurable experience and worth the price.

Visited Azumi’s this past weekend for a spontaneous date.
As always, the food was great! I ordered a mixture of things this time.

For starters I had the Miso Soup that was bursting with flavor. The Crunchy Tuna Toro was new for me. The sushi was fresh. You could taste the blends of mixed greens and vinaigrette. It was very tasty. The Vegetable Fried Rice.was also a new choice. It was flavorful with a mixture of diced carrots, mushrooms and scallions. It was delicious

Azumi’s is a perfect spot near the water so the ambience is always set. I love this restaurant! Never disappointed.

Unfortunately, there are no pictures.😕

What a mix this place is. Great ambience. Very good food. But two times in a row the service was so poor. Long stretches without ever seeing the server. Appetizers coming before the drinks. Then entrees taking forever. It’s too bad because we love the food and the ambience. But poor service combined with high prices is never a good combo.

Azumi was a treat... a nice change from the standard fish and chips or crab across the Inner Harbor. The food and presentation was original and delicious. The only minor criticism would have been the slow service at the very end. We would definitely return if we find ourselves back in the area.

We celebrated my son's graduation yesterday at Azumi. The location, atmosphere, food and service were all incredible! The sushi was very fresh and we enjoyed everything we ordered, but some standouts were the crispy rice tuna, crispy fried calamari (probably my favorite), wagyu fried rice, and the vanilla panna cotta for dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant!!

I had taken my 3 teenage daughters to the Preakness and we celebrated after at Azumi. We all loved the ambience and vibrancy of the crowd. Jessica was our server and she was very attentive. We loved the unique flavor of the various food we ordered and the girls and I had an extremely memorable time and likely will return.
