What a wonderful experience. Our reservations were for outside, and it was hit and humid, and they were able to seat us inside. The place was hopping! We had excellent food and service! The ease of reservations on one table makes this a go to for us.

This is one of the best restaurants in Pittsburgh. The food is creative, excellently prepared and presented. The small plates of octopus and shrimp are especially outstanding. The service is attentive without being overbearing. This is a great place to share dishes and a great place to go with another couple or a group. I highly recommend it!

About the restaurant



Umi offers an evening of unparalleled dining, featuring New York style sushi and Japanese cuisine and meticulous preparation. At center stage is our awe-inspiring omakase: a multi-course adventurous meal prepared by Mr. Shu, winner of Pittsburgh Magazine’s Chef of the Year.

House cocktails, as well as a variety of sakes and wines are available to complement your experience.

Umi's dining room transforms the top floor of a Shadyside Victorian row house into a delightful Japanese garden. Authentic tatami seating, a large sushi bar, and a delicate waterfall create a transcendentally peaceful dining experience.

We struggled to decide on dining family style vs 7-course omakase vs 11-course omakase. Ultimately, we decided on the 11-course omakase and don't regret our choice. It was delicious and well paced. A great way to spend an evening.

Hosted a business meal and the food and service didn’t disappoint. Everyone had a fantastic meal and the service was excellent. It was a bit pricey, so I’m thankful the company picked up the bill.

We have been including this restaurant in our regular rotation for more years than either of us can remember. And for many good reasons. We are made to feel welcome, that they are genuinely happy we walked through the door. The service provided by Michelle and the other servers is always excellent and very professionally executed. There are always interesting specials on the chalk board as well as the excellent dishes that have stood the test of time that can be found on the regular menu. Righteous cocktails, nicely balanced wine selections, food offerings that are both creative and done to perfection. What's not to love?? Try it. You'll not be disappointed.
