We have eaten here about a dozen times. Service is usually good but the last time we ate, we found a shirt blond/gray hair in our sushi. We didn't make a big deal of it but expected that the roll cost would be removed from the bill. One awkward conversation later after the waitress said there were no wait staff with blond hair, I just let it go but won't return here. We were offered a dessert but declined from being full. Shortly after our dinner, we also got a nice little notice from open table that the restaurant stated we did not keep our reservation and how it negativly affects their business. So I shared my hairy food story with them but they were no longer "concerned".

Excellent Food, almost always excellent service. Pricey but fun to share sushi and sashimi wilth all at the table. Good wines. Little loud at times, casino noise can be annoying sometimes.

Great food. Try the calamari, clam chowder and fish. Sashi and sashimi is wonderful. Seating is a bit close and service is okay.

The hostess you meet at the front ( check in ) desk, young woman, is very rude and this is not my first encounter with her.
The food is ok.
However I will praise the pork belly sliders. They are divine.
My sister said the poke tacos were good.
The mahi entree was not good.
The tempura is tasty but very greasy.
The young gentlemen who served us earned a hefty tip for their outstanding service.
This was Sunday, March 24th, 2019, at 5 Pm.

Been to dinner two times in the last month. Everything is great except, last time was in booth next to main walkway to hotel. Was real noisy. This restaurant needs glass wall between long wall with booths. We sat at another booth in back first time, it was a little dark but, quieter.

This place can be pricey, that said, its WORTH IT. Food is excellent, service is even better - hard to keep up with four contsruction workers constantly ordering sushi and drinks but they kept up and kept it coming :)

Umi Sushi ended up feeling like Denny's opened up a Sushi restaurant. The food was bland, and the location just off the casino, with little more than cloth to provide separation, made it very loud. The decor felt like an all-night diner was trying t be sophisticated. The Sushi selections were bland and, apart from the presentation, the three rolls we ordered tasted indistinguishable. We ordered two specialty drinks, one of which was returned because it literally tasted like cough syrup. The other drink was also far too sweet. The service, however, was very good. Our waiter was attentive and friendly.

Went here for Valentine's day on Sunday, Feb 17. Took my fiance here bc it's her favorite sushi restaurant. I hate sushi and all seafood really but got the prime ribeye. I paid $40 for a steak that was overcooked. It was hard to eat but didn't want to send it back bc I wanted to eat with my girl. The reason we were there was entirely for her. However, it would've been nice if the steak was cooked properly considering the price. I guess that's what I get for getting a steak at a sushi restaurant. Service was ok at best. Never heard any specials while we saw other servers telling guests the specials. The server did, however, bring me a creme brulee to make up for the steak. I liked that. But otherwise, for the reputation of the place, I expected more. I'll only go back bc my lady loves it. And hey, you gotta sacrifice to make your woman happy, right? And that's all I care about.

My husband and i felt the service was a little lacking - our waitress seemed preoccupied and not very personable- the gal that seated us however was sweet and engaging - the busboy as too - it was mainly the waitress she didn’t seem like she wanted to be there - but the food was tasty - we ordered the sashimi salad and though pricy at 24.00 for what you got - it was good just overpriced we felt- everything else tasted very fresh and we enjoyed the food overall!

The food was really good :) It is expensive, but considering it feels like a nice night out, it was worth it. The service was just fine, we would have appreciated a warmer hostess and that our waitstaff was more attentive with drinks, but for an evening at the casino, we had a great time.

The food presentation is beautiful with the maki, sushi and appetizers a good value. The entree I got, halibut and crab, had one half of one leg (four bites) of crab for $56. Our service was disappointing. Waitress disappeared for long period of times while I saw other tables being serviced by waiter and bus staff. We had to ask to order, ask for water, ask for check, ask for dessert, then flag down someone to clear our cluttered dishes. She never reappeared to pour our wine, which we did ourselves. For the $$, one expects more attentive service.

Food was average, fish was fresh, as you should expect. Didn't see why it should be so expensive, nothing was "above & beyond" (at those prices) at least in my opinion. Perhaps because it was in a casino?
Oysters were good.
Meh... 3 stars.

I received a voice mail from the staff about two hours before my reservation and the message was not clear and seemed to indicate that if I did not call them back within 15 minutes they would cancel the reservation. I called back as soon as I could and got voicemail. Someone returned my call in a few minutes and clarified that they meant if we did not show up and check in at least 15 minutes early then it would be canceled

My feeling is that this correspondence was rude and not required.

The service and food were good but expensive for a non upscale restaurant inside a casino.
