We tried Yume Sushi for the first time and it was very good! Everything was beautifully presented, fresh and delicious! Sat outside (love that they offer outdoor seating!) and the service was pleasant. One misstep in forgetting to bring our sauce and delayed in retrieving our credit cards to pay, but overall, service was friendly, sincere and good. The sushi is so fresh and tasty! Particularly great is that they offer the option to “build your own” roll. Only Japanese beers available on the menu, and portions are suitable for sushi, but not large so plan to order more than one.
Try this spot!

I brought my mother to Yume for Mother’s Day. My boss recommended this place and it did not disappoint at all. We started by ordering Japanese green tea. We were given the choice of drinking it cold or hot. We chose hot. We got a large glass of it which I loved! (We had two) The first thing my mother said was “This is good.” That compliment is difficult to get out of her. We then ordered seaweed salad and The Winner as our appetizer. My mother opened her eyes big and wide after eating The Winner. She said that was very good. After that, we were served chicken tempura which was juicy. Then we ate the scallops nigiri special which became my favorite out of everything I had that night. We also ordered the sashimi roll, yu-me roll, yellow tail, tuna, lavender-smoked salmon sashimi, and special roasted black sesame ice cream. Chef Peter is a master. My mother smiled and said that everything she had was really superb! I definitely see myself coming back to this restaurant over and over in the future.

Noise level so high that it was impossible to conduct a conversation. Was very hard to converse with the servers due to the noise. Food service was poor. We were five and some got their food after others already finished eating. Servers did not know who ordered what and it was hard to sort it out given the almost painful noise level.
The food was quite good although not outstanding but it was reasonably priced. In conclusion, the noise makes the restaurant a very uncivilized place.

Chef Peter and his sushi team do a great job at preparing delicious pieces of nigiri. We try the specials each time we go and have never been disappointed. They also have a great sake selection. The black sesame ice cream is a must try, it taste like an elevated peanut butter. All around delicious meal and great staff!!

My husband and I don't normally eat sushi, but this restaurant opened up just around the corner from us, so we decided to try it. We loved it. The menu was inviting even to those of us who don't know much about sushi and our server was very good at explaining the various "rolls" and soups to us. We enjoyed all of it. We were a little surprised that there weren't more wines to choose from, but the bottle of sauvignon blanc was terrific. We'll be back!

Though a little pricey and a little noisy at points I can't rate my experience at Yume anything short of 5 stars. The service was incredible, outshone only by the quality of the food. Yes it can be expensive but everything I ordered felt worth the price paid and then some. The chefs took me on a gosh dang culinary journey. Some dishes were delicate, some spicy, some fruity, some had incredible umami and in all of them the fish was the star. How they accomplished such a wide variety of textures and flavors using almost exclusively ingredients from the sea is beyond my reckoning. I can only conclude that they are wizards who perform their magic via rice and knife rather than wand.

If you aren't sure what to order get whatever is fresh and don't be afraid to rely on the recommendations of your servers or the chefs, they will not steer you wrong. I will warn you that this is not a traditional sushi experience like you would find at some other notable local sushi stops. If that's what you are looking for, you may not find it here, but what you will find is unique and worth experiencing. Where else in town will you find Lavender Smoked Salmon Nigiri?

I may not be able to afford to eat here regularly but by god I'd show up every night if I could.

The food and ambiance had a very modern-chic vibe, and seemed like it would be great place to have a more up-scale date without being too expensive. The only downfall I found was that the restaurant itself is a bit crowded, so if you’re seated at a table anywhere other than next to the main walking area, you have to squeeze by other tables and customers (even if you’re a relatively small person).

OK, let me start by saying WE LOVE MASTER CHEF P (MCP)! 🤣😂 Yes, we renamed him! He has been serving us for years prior to him opening this OUTSTANDING restaurant.

We had reservations for V-Day and we were the first couple there. Upon entering, Master Chef doubles back from prepping for one of his many big days of the year to welcome us with such warmth and appreciation with hugs and laughter and memories! It was a great start to a PERFECT NIGHT!

Now let's get down to the good stuff - food and ambiance! 🤤😍💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾 Nothing but the BEST OF EVERYTHING! The food was and always has been breathtakingly OUTSTANDING! I'm talking fresh, clean, rare, and a one-of-a-kind experience. The decor? Sheesh! I need him to come decorate/design my home. It was just beautiful. My husband definitely picked a winner with this spot!

Last, but not least, since we arrived so early, we were the only customers at the time and my husband got down on one knee and renewed our vows and the whole damn restaurant knew about it before me! It was so touching! Valentine's Day 2019 will forever be memorable thanks to my other half and our special friends @ YumeSushi! We love you Master Chef P! And, your staff! Thanks for the videos/pics and the forerver memories! 😍 ❤ Check out the other pics on my Google review - 4 is the limit here 😫😫
