Strange sushi experience! I am a serious sushi eater and was thrilled to see that Umami had a special tasting menu of sushi from Tokyo's Tsukiji Market. Of course I ordered it and the sushi was exquisite though the pieces were very small. The strange part was that the sushi bar was set up to prevent interaction with the sushi chefs who were on a lower level and far from the people sitting at the sushi bar. Also I asked if the 10 pieces of sushi I ordered could come just a few at a time, obviously not the way it was normally served. The waitress graciously asked the sushi chef and he agreed

All the other people sitting at the sushi bar ordered rolls or other dishes off the menu. The restaurant was full of young people having a great time. There was only 1 Asian diner and most people were there for the party, not the food, which was actually very good.

The tables are to close together. There is no music and it is still a very loud place.

Really enjoyed our meal. A nice place to go for a fun night out. The sliders are a must and the niguri was great. And the cookie dough ice cream dessert was awesome!

We decided to have dinner here for a birthday and loved every second we spent at Umami! We appreciated the attentive and informative waiter, the entire ambiance of the restaurant was cool and laid back. There was even enough seating for our party of seven. The food was absolutely delicious, a nice Asian twist on dishes such as tacos, ribs, and salads. The sushi rolls were marvelous. The portions were perfect, we all picked at each other's plates to try a little of everything. The faded Crain cocktail was a hit with us as well as the cookie dough rolls for a little birthday dessert, yum! Thank you Umami, I'll definitely return! Give this place a try everyone!!

The food here is in the spirit of having fun with twists on traditional Japanese food. The food was in fact fun, and pretty good. My main issue with the restaurant is that it was super-noisy. I was surprised that it would be so crowded and so noisy early on a Monday evening, but it is, after all, in the Marina.

Umami always exceeds expectations. My daughter requested that we go to Umami for her 16th birthday even though we go there all the time. The service was exceptional, happy hour half price wine awesome and the food, both from the happy hour menu and the regular menu was amazing.

We just wish it was open for lunch on weekends...
