Food was great, Val our waitress was so incredibly sweet. Greatly enjoyed her waiting on us. Porch chop was HUGE, seared salmon was sooo delicious and shrimp and grits very filling. Brownie filled up 3 people, with some leftover, it was gigantic. Will definitely visit again.

About the restaurant
We are a modern restaurant housed in an automotive garage that dates back to the 1940s. During the pre-interstate period of America, people and families often traveled across storied highways such as Route 40, Lincoln Highway or Route 66, encountering regional foods and a variety of cultural influences along the way.

In that spirit, our seasonal menu will be a ‘road trip’ that explores some of those mid-western, southern, south-western, and western dishes and techniques. Just like a garage, we will tinker with and adjust them to put together something that will make your trip to see us memorable.

About the restaurant
Spork is a seasonally ingredient driven restaurant. Our menus food, beer, wine and cocktails are developed and implemented, first and foremost, by what we are able to source at its peak. As a restaurant that prides itself on scratch preparation, taken to the extreme, we understand how reliant we are on the local farms, butchers, seafood houses and a few select distributors that we partner with to execute our vision. Our team includes a farmer, a published author, a baker, and a sommelier, in addition to the usual array of chefs, bartenders and service staff. To turn out our menus, we have on-premises, programs to: Bake all of our own breads (including in-house grain milling) - Extensively ferment and pickle vegetables - Grow and harvest a large percentage of our produce - Hand craft a full line of pastas - Smoke meats, vegetables - Produce a full range of pastries, ice creams and plated desserts.

One of the best meals of my life. Just incredible. The scallop appetizer was perfect. The wagyu entree was so so good, each bite was close-your-eyes-and-savor-it good. The dessert medley was great. Our server was delightful.

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.

Everything was great for my girlfriend’s birthday. They gave us a window seat and the view was excellent. Jacob our server was fantastic and drinks were good. Ownership/Management was attentive also. Steak was amazing. For ambiance, quality of food, location and view, I thought price was lower than I would pay at a high end restaurant. It was chilly in there though and my girlfriend could have used a sweater but it was otherwise a fantastic evening!!
