I have never had a bad meal at Umami, and I've had some memorable ones. Last night was such a meal. Visiting foreign fri
This place has fantastic sashimi (tuna in particular) has good service (attentive but not too much) and a really fun and delicious ice cream cookie dough sushi style dessert (salted caramel is the best!)
Sushi rolls are always delicious but the vegetable tempura was very disappointing. The portions were way to large and kind of gooey. Individual veggies make for much better tempura.
Absolutely LOVE Umami for every occasion, intimate dining to a full blown celebration!
This is the only sushi place that we go to. It never fails and is always s high quality experience. We look forward to our next treat night.
Kale was outstanding. Cocktails tasty but on the weaker side.
The sushi was good and fresh. However it was extremely loud and i could barely hear the person i went there with which was a bummer.
Food was 5 Stars!
The Midori roll may have been the best roll I've ever had. And I've been eating sushi since the 80s. That may not be your specific experience, but you'll definitely find something to your liking. We arrived at opening with reservations, there was already a line at the door and and it filled up rapidly behind us. We were a little worried that all these people trying to order all at once would slow them down but it didn't seem to affect service or timing of food arrival one iota. Excellent sushi and sashimi as well as alternatives to the raw fish. This one is worth you time and effort to try out.
I met a person I hadn't seen in decades. Conversation was to be an important aspect of this dinner, as with most dinners. The noise levels made it incredibly difficult to have a conversation. There is a central, long table in the center of the room where guests were shouting and disruptive to others. I think they were a sports team. Otherwise, the restaurant is great. The sushi was terrific, fresh, artistic. The miso soup was wonderful. The architecture is exactly right for this " Japanese tavern."
If you like sushi and a cooked Asian dishes, come here for bright and unique combinations that really work! Its a bit noisy and close for serious conversation during the main dinner hours. But other than that, straight A's in all categories.

We love going to Umami for delicious sushi. Great selection of rolls and the quality of the fish is one of the best in the city. Our server was very knowledgeable about all the menu items and made great suggestions.
Incredible food and service. Highly recommend it
My husband and I really loved this place. The food was absolutely delicious. Everything we ordered scrumptious. The Kobe beef sliders, vegetable tempura (kind like a latte, only better), and sushi rolls. We will definitely be back.
