The owner is so sweet and involved. Food was great and service was okay. The appetizer took the longest and I wasn’t sure because it was just edamame. Other than that everything else was fine. Would dine here again!

The food is excellent at Umi, however our server was inattentive. Would definitely return and hopefully get a different server.

It was everything I hoped and feared. It was an interesting sushi place with some raw food and excellent presentation. My wife and I spent over $70 on sushi, calamari, and 250 ml of hot sake. Then we went to Steak'n'Shake, because I was still hungry. If you want to drop an excessive amount of money (they have to pay Park Avenue rent somehow) on a light snack or appetizer before going somewhere for a real meal, this is a good choice.

Horrible experience. Should have listened to others who had the same experience but we said we'd give it a try. Three times they brought the wrong dishes out. When they finally got one roll right, it arrived all alone and the others at our table waited for another 20 minutes for their food. Average at best.
The calamari is in a tiny little basket that holds a cup so don't plan on sharing that as an appetizer.
The best part came when Susie, the owner I guess, came over and said, she was so sorry but don't come on a weekend it's always like this. Then, they took the credit card to pay and never returned. When we said, we need our card, they said, we can't find it. Susie came back and offered her phone number and said to please come again ask for her. Finally a waiter comes out with the card. It was a comedy of errors that cost just under $100. Don't bother.

nothing better than to be at a restaurant that shows you how much it means to the owners..to create an all around great experience. From the great service to the great wagyu or sushi or ramen..the truffle edamame is addicting!

Umi remains our “go to” place for Japanese food for my wife and I and this visit was no exception. Mona was an outstanding server and made sure the kitchen provided the food in the starter/sushi/entrée order we prefer. From our earlier experiences at Umi we learned the kitchen will send out the food in a random order unless “managed” by our server. We had our usual nigiri chef’s selection and the Godzilla sushi roll that were both outstanding. As to our entrees, unfortunately recent menu changes seem to have pared down the number of hot selections and eliminated some of our favorites. I ordered the shrimp tempura and it was good. Not finding a hot entrée to her liking my wife ordered the “Park Avenue” sushi roll that she rated only fair. Nonetheless, Umi is one of our favorite Central Florida spots and we will return soon.

UMI in Winter Park is a culinary treat. As they continue to enhance their menu (Now adding Brunch!) they are raising the bar for high quality sushi in the area. Our most recent dinner was again outstanding as we sat outside and enjoyed the great service of Luis!

We enjoyed a wonderful meal - from appetizers through dessert, every item was fresh and creative. Luis was our server and he offered us great suggestions and wine accompanyments. On this visit, I tried the Ramen with Wagyu beef and it was out of this world. I would highly recommend UMI to you for the freshest sushi you can find, but also the other menu items recently introduced to the menu!

We visited Umi in Winter Park for the first time last Sat. and enjoyed a great meal with old friends visiting from Europe. We made reservations for our party of 9 and everything was already in place when we arrived early. The presentation of the food equaled the high quality. Selections from the grill were very flavorful. The Drunken Lobster sushi was fresh and very tasty. The fried calamari appetizer was cooked just the right amount. The yellowtail entrée and accompanying risotto was excellent. Even though we had thoroughly enjoyed our meal, we decided to skip dessert as we had eaten our fill. However, the owner Susie wanted to make sure that our experience was complete and provide several complimentary desserts for us to try. They were colorful and elegantly designed with unusual textures and the taste was much better than your standard dessert fare. Susie shared a few stories with us and was an excellent host. Would definitely recommend Umi.

3 out of the 4 orders were wrong. My friends steak got sent back twice and was still over cooked and chewy. Waitress told us it’s suppose to be a chewy steak. Then our bill has to be fixed 2 times.
On the menu it says $17 for a noodle bowl. We received our bill and got charged an extra $10 for choosing our noodles and protein. On the menu it says nothing about an extra charge. They did take it off. The steak in the bowl was so fatty and chewy I couldn’t eat it. Our sushi roll was good. I wasn’t impressed the first time I went a few years ago. But I thought I would give it another chance and was disappointed. Our waitress was nice but the food wasn’t impressionable.
