We had a great meal, sushi was excellent as always. They had a lot of seating outside to help keep tables spaced out inside. Felt very comfortable there. Was glad to see how busy they were. I would recommend a reservation.

We always have a good experience at Umi. Both the food and the service are excellent.
We like to dine outside there, so I suppose we will have to put up with the traffic and noise on Park Ave, which is our only less than perfect experience there.

Waiters was not that knowledgeable in what was being offered. She made a dessert recommendation without properly explaining it and I did not enjoy it. We did magical dinning and the app and main dish were good. We did have to call waitress over a few times for silverware and napkins as table was all wet. The experience was ok but I have had better at a Japanese restaurant

Went for magical dinning to try Umi for the first time. It was great. The muscle and bugoli were delicious. The magical dining menu had a lot of good options and came with full size appetizers, entrees and deserts. The Japenese pound cake was ok but the Pear Creme brûlée and Oreo cheesecake were amazing!

Had a reservation and after arriving, walked past tables that were ready to a table that wasn’t even bussed. My party was told that we couldn’t have the clean tables cause they were for someone else so we waited ten minutes for someone to come and bus our table. When someone finally came and we sat, we had no menus no forks nothing. Someone finally came and instead of bringing anything, asked us if we had a reservation then disappeared for another five minutes. We left. Won’t be going back. We watched two other groups get seated with no problems. Terrible service.

I used to love Umi. My friend and I went for magical dining, we realized we sat there for 45 minutes with nothing but water. Then we got our first course 55 minutes into the reservation time. The food was sub par. We both had muscles that was on a very tasteless broth, the sashimi was just that, my desert was a two table spook sized creme brûlée that when I broke the top I hit the bottle of the container it was in ah the same time. My friend had a cake that was hard and only tasted of the caramel they poured on top. Very poor dining experience. This was truly disappointing, even the ambiance was off in this place. I hope they get back up to what Umi used to be.

Service was outstanding and the food delicious. The choice of music was not suitable for a restaurant as it was pounding and uncomforting considering the overall great ambience of UMI. The ceiling sea life is worth a visit. The servings were quite large and out great waitress boxed up our leftovers with ice so my wife and I ate them with gusto.

Lola, our server was exceptional! She took her time to explain our food and gave suggestions. The mussels in lobster broth were my absolute favorite, which is surprising, because honestly I came to conquer the chirashi plate. That was delicious too, but after being gluttonous with the mussels, I didn't have much space for anything else. My lovely date felt the same, but when desserts arrived, we changed our minds. The ginger asian pear creme brulee melted in my mouth and the different taste sensations were layered but not overwhelming. The owner and chef came out to say hello, atmosphere was nice, music taste a bit weird, but the staff seemed to enjoy their jobs and I will be back for more very soon!

Umi was wonderful. Other than a slight mishap at the beginning (forgot we were there) our dining experience was great. Our waiter Ray was super wonderful and the owner was very sweet and gracious and both wanted to make our experience wonderful. Never been before but definitely going again. Want to try some other cool stuff.

Very nice neighborhood restaurant.I love the ides of having so many table/distanced outside. I wish the Sashimi platter comes with some rice on the side, but that's just me. Overall great fresh fish and good selection of wines.

We loved our food both times there, but last visit our service was a little rough - lack of attention, food took a really long time and then arrived cold so they took it back to fix it. The food is really good though!

The food was excellent as always. What faltered on our visit was service. Our table was the only table in the restaurant for a whole hour and we still had to wait for water to be brought out and to be refilled.

Forgot my wife’s drink. Forgot the moist towelettes which is Umi traditional signature move

If the restaurant would have been busy in the beginning of our stay; that would have been a valid excuse. But we were the only table.

Normally the service is beyond compare at Umi. For us this was our first time that service was beneath standards.

The ambiance was superb. The seaweed salad was fresh and tangy. We did try the yellowtail apéritif regimented by our table attendant. It was lemony and tangy and very refreshing.

Overall the experience was gratifying minus the service. In the table attendant’s defense though as the restaurant got busier she got better which left my wife and her guest baffled.

I would still recommend Umi wholeheartedly!

A very good neighborhood Japanese and Korean restaurant. Very friendly “owner” and staff. Good sushi and ramen. Only complaint was “minced” bulgogi was not as savory as sliced beef.

My GF and I generally make this our primary sushi location. It happened to be our 2nd anniversary for this visit and to no surprise, Umi nailed it once again. Not only did they set us up with incredible cuisine, but with an astounding environment. The sushi is always super fresh and is well thought out so that it compliments itself as well as the many other extraordinary menu items. Let’s also not forget about the great wine selection and Japanese import beers! Simply put, if you are in the area swing in here and I promise you won’t leave disappointed.
