Umi by Hamasaku
Great food, great people . Always like to go there--
Our waitstaff was extremely slow and inattentive but nice. They didn’t acknowledge it birthday note so nothing was offered or said about it. The food was great though
Everything tasted very fresh and the wait staff was extremely attentive. Celebrated a birthday and the waitress comped a dessert.
They were out of cold glasses for beer so they gave us one cold and one room temp water glass. One server was okay but was ready to go home. The other had a warmer and friendlier attitude. Sea food and sushi was fresh, but the fried cauliflower seemed to be have rushed out and was slightly under cooked. We were the last table seated at 8:15 and they definitely wanted to be done and locked up by 9:30
Delicious food and friendly service!
A great place. One of the best sushi meals we've ever had. Unique dishes. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Great taste and fast service
Reasonably priced. Very limited options for vegans or vegetarians.
Good food. Great service. It could use a little bump up in ambiance but overall great!
Everything we ordered was delish and very fresh!
I love the food, a little expensive however it’s worth it.
Great food, not great vibes...kind of what you would expect from strip mall sushi...even if it is a really nice strip mall. The food is great though! I will be back, just not for date night.
Good food , good service
Omakase was so-so, the sushi better than the sashimi. Overall just”ok” for mid-range sushi there are better options out there.
Their selection of rolls is unique. They have a few types that I have not seen before. Great quality and service overall.
Just an overall really great local find for sushi. Will definitely be going back.
Friday night dinner started out with the raw tower, seaweed salad, cauliflower, chicken karaage, tonkatsu bites, hamachi Kama, and ended with the G6 roll. All very good. Service on the spot. Nice to have a Japanese option in the Point.
Met my best friend to celebrate our birthdays and catch up in the new year! Service was great and attentive! We got perfect suggestions for our meal. Started with roasted cauliflower which was delicious, followed by three amazing Sushi roll sets - Toro Toto Salmon, Twilight Roll and the DJ roll!
It would be good if when you make a reservation on Open Table and come in that you are not contacted by Open Table to ask why you were a no-show.
great sushi - high quality and fresh. The decor is just average and still looks a lot like the fast food restaurant that was there before. For the first time, our service was not very good. they were great about telling us about the happy hour deadline but forgot half our order, didn't do the check right, took a long time to bring out the food and the waitress did not seem concerned at all about any this. In the end, after talking to her a few times, she fixed the check but had a could care less attitude. At least the food is good!
Amazing food. Was so surprised at how innovative and delicious everything was. I’m forever ruined for any other oysters, lobster roll or roasted cauliflower. Holy cow.
Loved the menu, but did not feel there was quite enough selections for a "hearty" meal. Everything we ordered was really good, but maybe lacking just a bit because most of their menu items really does lean toward being healthy. Which is definitely not a bad thing. Also, the service was just OK. We were asked so may time whether we were ready to order in a very short period of time. The waiters & one bus help ket on eying our table to see if dishes were freeing up & the minute we would finish a plate, someone would swoop in to take the dish away. I guess it just felt like we were being rushed. And my water glass still had someone's lip print on it. Not a good thing as CA has done away with straws. Not all that satiating in the end for a tab of $100.00 for not ordering any drinks &/or dessert...
Great food. Above average contemporary Japanese date. We love it, and they even have some specials for the kids.
I have been waiting awhile until trying this new gem. The food is just as good as the main Hamasaku in West LA and the service and staff are fantastic. They have a great happy hour, the sushi is well-priced and delicious! Had a great time trying this and will definitely be back.
So glad I had a reservation. The place was completely full with people waiting but we got right in. Small crowed place but food and service was great. Prices were very good too. Will definitely go back (with a reservation).
Great fresh authentic sushi. Small portions so it got a little expensive. The Ramen was outstanding ad great value!!
Service issues: 1) we got there 9 minutes late and they gave away our table so we had to wait 25 minutes to get seated (party of 7). 2) The food came at uneven intervals so several people finished the meal before others were served.
The nigiri sushi lunch is a good deal for $25. The bento box with grilled mackerel is also very abundant. Both will fill you up with quality ingredients.
Every dish I tried was outstanding! Excellent food. Service was a little slow but we expected that. Not a huge place (max occupancy is around 60) but just big enough.
Always a great dining experience every time we go!!
Lunch bentos are the best deal......
First time there. I liked it a lot. I will come back.
Delicious and unique menu. The fish is always great quality and it’s surprisingly kid friendly and they even have a kids menu which is hard to find at a good sushi place.
Not impressed at all and I was so excited to try it. Food wasn’t good. Rolls are breaking apart. And prices are way high. I could eat a very decent sushi elsewhere for the price I paid here. Totally disappointed
We were looking forward to trying UMI and were not disappointed. The restaurant is small and casual and although we had a reservation there was plenty of tables open on a Wednesday night.
The waitress was helpful in making suggestions and we tried several items including the Toro Toro Salmon roll which was great. We also tried the G6 and Twilight rolls which were also wonderful.
Prices are reasonable for very fresh fish/sushi and we are looking forward to visiting UMI again soon.
Sushi is fresh and they have unique rolls. I only wish they had Edamame.
Omakase sashimi/sushi on the menu for $50 is a good deal. The quality of their fish and sushi rice is definitely top notch. All their appetizers are very good, except the potato salad with salmon which was too weird for me. Otherwise the service is very attentive and friendly. Great addition to El Segundo!
Great welcome as we came in the door which was a perfect start to a very good dinner.
Umi knows their seafood. Ordered the special fresh fish of the day (whole mackerel or aji) and they were able to grill it instead of frying. Came out terrific, very moist and fresh.
