UMI was an amazing experience! I went for magical dining but see this becoming a regular spot for me. The staff was very welcoming and helpful with making food suggestions.
The sushi was fresh and a good portion. The mango tango and bishoujo rolls were my favorites! I would highly recommend the yakisoba noodles with pork belly. The pork was very tender and had a tasty sauce over top. The tonkatsu pork was very good too. They had a good drink menu with lots of wine selections.
I look forward to returning!!

It's a small establishment, better for smaller parties of no more than 4 people. I visited for the magical dining menu and I wasn't disappointed. The Mango Tango Roll was delicious, the Tonkatsu Pork was good, and the Matcha Cheescake was good. I can't wait to go back and try the Crunchy Tataki and the Mochi Trio.

We went for Orlando Magical Dining and Umi didn't disappoint. The food is so fresh, you can taste the difference from other sushi restaurants. With this menu we did receive a flavorful miso soup with a salad (homemade dressing), in addition to an appetizer, entrée and dessert. My husband had a steak entre & loved it, very tender, and I had a salmon meal with mushrooms and Brussel sprouts. All was superb.
We would highly recommend Umi to others. And we will return!

We tried the Magical Dining menu but we're partial to the regular menu. The miso soup is among the best we've tried, and they're happy to fix their spectacular eel with rice, even though it's no longer on the menu. The mango semifreddo dessert, a chef's nightly special, on the Magical Dining menu was excellent.

First time at Umi and really enjoyed our dinner experience. Made a reservation for outside and loved feeling safer without masks at our table. We enjoyed the ambiance of this quieter part of Park Ave. One of us had the magical dining menu and everything was delicious & great size portions- brought some leftovers home. The other ordered from the regular menu and it was also delicious. Service was responsive & friendly. All servers wore their masks the entire time and took great care of us. Great experience, will definitely return!

Service was fantastic! The food was delicious, especially the Rollins roll. The $6.00 up charge for real crab meat on the Rollins roll was a little excessive I thought especially when I was not told there was an upcharge when it was requested. Otherwise, awesome dining experience!

We are regulars but we decided to go and try the Magical Dining menu. Not your typical Japanese restaurant. We were not disappointed. We went early as we've heard it gets very busy and by the time we left, the restaurant was full. We had David as a server and a delightful dinner all around. Already made reservations for next week!

Cozy little place with standard sushi and Japanese food, nothing to brag about. Our server was not very good. We waited 20 minutes for dessert. Pay attention to the drink prices, I had no idea a glass of wine is $16, and $10 for a beer. We won't likely eat there again.

The BEST menu for Magical Dining! FOUR courses and plenty of selection. I went for lunch because they offer Magical Dining all day. Get the Yakisoba noodles and the Mango Tango roll. I've been on a Saturday night and its very busy so I prefer to stick to weekdays. A Winter Park gem!

The food was good but service was disappointing. I asked 3 different servers for sauce and never got it after waiting about 10 minutes and letting my food get cold. I was given my desert 8 minutes before my boyfriend. We also did not have water most of the experience.

Responded on August 30, 2021

Dear Madison, We are so sorry for what happened. You are absolutely right, you should not have to ask multiple times for sauce and then wait for it. And we apologize about the water and dessert wait. We were short one server due to a call-out and unfortunately. We would love the opportunity to make it up to you. May we connect?

Service was horrible. Reservation was for 7:15 got seated at 7:30 and didn’t leave until 10 because service was so slow. It was so slow we paid in cash so we didn’t have to wait for them to come get the card. Shushi was very good but the other food wasn’t very good at all. *Maybe the service was bad because of Magical Dining*

We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your experience. We truly try our best to control seating and reservations, and apologize you had to wait 15 minutes for your table. Since it was so warm on Saturday, a lot of people wanted to be seated inside which also affected table availability. We apologize for this, and the slow service. It was the first weekend of Magical Dining and we were also unfortunately one server short. Again, our apologies, and we thank you for joining us.

Our server, DAVID, was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! One of our guests had several food allergies including avocado and sesame (not the easiest in a sushi restaurant!).
David was extremely professional, kind, and knowledgeable of the menu, which made said guest feel completely comfortable when ordering and also mentioned that he felt like David really cared about his allergies/condition, which is not always the case when he dines out.

Sushi was incredibly fresh, delicious, delicate with beautiful presentation!!
