Was celebrating! Great service in the beginning, then we became
Ignored after our entrees dropped. Found a hair on my sushi that wasn’t mine.

Tonight was fantastic. We had Rosena who owns Yume greet us and sat down with Brandon one of our favorite servers. Before I could get comfortable the best bartender Minha already had my drink prepared. Talk about being treated like a king. Tonight they had the Florida oysters and were from Miami and have had our share of oysters these were some of the best I’ve ever had in a scallion, ponzu horseradish juice. Amazing!! The food and service was great as always and if you want a great experience with great food and service this is the place. Thank you so much everyone at Yume for another fantastic experience!! See you next time

Started with Takoyaki (octopus hush puppies) and Gyoza!! Absolutely phenomenal. Sushi was Outstanding. My better half got one of their cocktails the Cucumber refresher and it was really good as well. Our server was obviously overwhelmed last night as it was very busy. Overall this place was phenomenal and will definitely be back!!

Our server, Myrna, was an absolute joy. She was comfortably conversational and well versed with the food choices. Food was delicious- both sushi and ramen. Considering the acoustics the music was a bit too loud

I ordered the Omakase dinner ahead of time for a birthday celebration. It was 100% worth it. Service was great, personable. The sushi chef who served us was very friendly, and knowledgeable. The courses were paced very well and delicious. He described ahead of time each type of dish, what to expect, and where it came from. Overall, a great experience and we will be back for sure. Will certainly be recommending to friends and family.

overall experience was excellent. the sushi potion were a tad smaller than our previous visit. food presentation was not as spectacular as our previous visit as well. it was a packed house so i attribute these small details to that. otherwise the food was very good as before. owner and staff are super friendly & gracious. will definitely be back again.

Hit up the happy hour. Food was fresh and delicious. Salmon truffles appetizer was to die for. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive. Let us squat for a little longer due to a storm rolling in. Great date place.

The food was great, although I didn’t love the pork as much as I have at other ramen restaurants. The okonomiyaki fries were wonderful!

However, we were disappointed that the booking experience on Open Table was misleading. When we booked, there was a banner alerting “offer available” that advertised 30-50% off sushi and appetizers. It even said it on the booking confirmation. We ordered several appetizers because of this. When the bill came, they were full price. When I asked the waitress about this, she said that it was referring to happy hour, which had ended well before our reservation time. I showed her the listing on open table, and she said that it said that no matter when you booked, but it referred only to happy hour. She said she realized it was confusing as well. There should be hours/expanded information on this “offer” since it apparently pops up on every booking. We felt like it was misleading, almost a bait and switch.

I’m just kinda upset that this place is right down the road from me and I haven’t been here sooner. The oysters was a daily special and if you are an oyster lover, it was meaty, perfect and did not have that fishy taste! So fresh and delicious. The fried dumplings was crispy and fried to perfection, usually if I order fried I want it crispy and sometimes comes out somewhat more steamed than fried. The ramen I ordered with “extreme spice” was good and had a nice kick to it. (Even thought I could still handle more heat to it) The rainbow sushi was where it was at thought! Everything was done so fresh and presentation was impeccable. I will definitely be back!

Fantastic!!! They were having happy hour specials and WOW!! Sat at the bar ( love sitting at bar and our bartender Mina !!). One thing want to point out is the yellow tail , takes 25 minutes to cook but worth wait. Enjoy some sake ( have a massive menu) while waiting!!!

Always have the best service with Brandon as our server. He's so knowledgeable about the menu & always has the best vibes. Yume's happy hour specials are amazing. We come for their Asian inspired small plates & stay for the unfiltered sake and Ube Sawa: orange vodka, elderflower liqueur, fresh lemon juice with a purple yam honey puree. Do yourself a favor & try it!

Our favorite restaurant in Uptown, CLT hands down. The sushi is fresh and the ramen is flavorful and delicious. 5 out of 5, will continue to reccomend!

Once again an amazing experience at now has become one of our favorite restaurants. We were greeted and we sat down right at reservation time and we had Brandon for our server and as usual he was fantastic. Minha made me my lemon ginger old fashioned and even I didn’t remember what I had last time and she did. She makes a great drink too. Yume should be very proud to have these individuals working there as they are a huge part of us falling in love with Yume. Can’t wait to go back!!

We went to celebrate a birthday for a friend. We had purchased a cake and brought it in the restaurant, with our own plates and forks. Was informed we needed to pay a $3 cutting fee per person for the cake, we informed our waitress that we can cut it. She was frazzled and went to speak to a manager. Manager then changed the story to we cannot eat cake because we would take up “sitting time.” The restaurant was half full at best. At this point, we were finished with our food, however it took the waitress 20+ minutes to get us the checks and cash out. The food was good but definitely not worth the hassle to celebrate any special event here!

I always like Yume and will return again. I tried some new foods this time and felt the pork belly and shrimp skewers were quite over cooked, however the sushi was quite tasty. Looking forward to trying ramen or sushi during my next visit
