This was another outstanding culinary experience complimented by the wonderful service provided by the UMI team. Luis takes great pride in serving Orlando's Best Japanese cuisine. Each of his recommendations were superb. The owners are always nearby ensuring a perfect evening! It is clear that UMI is getting better and better - it is a brilliant star on the Orlando Restaurant scene!

Amazing quality and experience. From hosts, servers, even the manager coming to your table to greet you and checking up on you was amazing. Best sushi I’ve had in a while. The ginger salad was so crispy and refreshing. Definitely this place weather it’s for a quick lunch or even a nice date setting.

We ate outside, and even outside, the tables were separated and we had ample space. The food is of premium quality, with fresh sushi, sashimi and a large selection of other delights like ramen, bibimbap, yakisoba and robata grilled items like pork belly and squid. we particularly loved the squid. If you are looking for a good roll, try the Crunch Hako or Tuna by Tuna. We will definitely be back. A hidden gem in Winter Park.

It was my second time there at Umi and it didn't disappoint. The service was great. Very nice server and was very attentive and knew the menu very well. The food was awesome. We shared the octopus as an appetizer which can have a tendency of being chewy but not this one. I ordered the bento box which was perfect considering I was starving . It hit the spot

While staying for six nights in Winter Park, I ate dinner at Umi four times. The quality of the raw fish is exceptional and the presentation is beautiful. The sushi chefs are well-trained and know what true Japanese sushi bar fare should be. Kudos to whoever does their buying. Without exception, all of the servers were excellent. I recommend Crunchy Tuna Tataki, Hamachi Chimichurri, scallop sashimi, toro sashimi, ikura nigiri, uni nigiri. For the chirashi, I would recommend asking for thin-sliced fish rather than the standard thick, American-style pieces. The ceviche was good but it was too big and there was too much of the same thing. If I lived in Winter Park, I would probably eat here every night.

The whole staff was laughing and speaking very loudly- the music was controlled by an Alexa that was continually being interrupted by the workers adding to a grocery list. The 2 sushi rolls I purchased were very small for the price and one of them had tuna that was so fishy I couldn’t bring myself to eat it. Would not recommend and will not be going back myself

We had a good time and were excited to try another sushi restaurant. Overall experience was good but or waiter was not the friendliest nor attentive. We had a Condiment missing on our table and had to personally get up and walk around to ask for it. Owner came out to every table to see how the experience was and did not come to our table. ( we are guessing based on the way we looked) or because we did not have a bottle of a blue drink on our table. This is the only reason we rated this low because of the service. Overall food was very good and excellent quality.

The food was very fresh and cooked to perfection. The drink selections are extremely overpriced ( soft drinks, beers, & wine ).
I have no problem paying a premium for great quality food but there’s no excuse to charge $10 for a bottle of beer or $16 for a 9 oz pour of wine that retails for $12 a bottle. I’ll stick to takeout from this place and save the dine in occasions for the Many other restaurants in the area that have a much wider selection of drinks that are reasonably priced.
