    Our server disappeared and our last sushi roll was forgotten. A manager finally assisted in getting the roll from the kitchen, but our wine had long been consumed and never replenished. Not a great experience.

    Server was distracted and didn’t come often enough. Fan outdoors wasn’t working so extremely hot and was told they couldn’t do anything about the heat. Tables are squished together so extremely loud, was unable to hear the person across the table. Food was still outstanding but everything else was sub-par for the prices they are charging.

    I find the small table seating for two too crowded. You feel like you are dining with strangers at the tables next to you. It also makes getting in and out very uncomfortable when other couples are seated to either side. Also, our reservation was early in the evening and they were already sold out of our favorite dish. They recommended reserving the dish when making our reservation. Who knew?

    Great food and menu. Service is excellent. The tables for a party of 2 are not comfortable. The noise level is very high. However the front desk is very customer service oriented and helpful. Prefer outdoor section for space and atmosphere

    I usually have a pretty decent experience at Umi; however, this visit was not as great. Service was not great - felt rushed and there were long periods of time when nobody came to our table. Took over 20 min to get drinks (after sitting there for 10 min without being greeted). Food is delicious but serving sizes are extremely small for price. Fun crowd and tasty food but I think it’s become too much of a “place to see and be seen” and has lost a lot of the local appeal. Lastly, there were three women at the bar (which only has 5 or 6 seats to begin with, so you can’t not be right behind them if you were trying to get a drink) who were dressed highly inappropriately (very ripped jeans, belly chains and thong underwear showing along with tops that had no more coverage than a bra)…not sure what happened to the dress code but it definitely wasn’t being enforced. Not very appealing when you expect a classy restaurant experience. I will definitely go there again because the food is delicious, but I hope my experience next time will be a little better like it used to be.

    Accommodated an issue with scheduling. Very well appointed table. Was able to get orders in rt at last call. Prompt service. Food is outstanding. Best dining experience in Atlanta in my opinion. I loved the energy ambiance and vibe. This is a crown jewel of Buckhead social dining. 5 stars.

    Went for my anniversary. The sushi is great but the two hot entrees that we ordered were not as good. My diver scallops were so small I left still hungry. They came in a little pot with sterno flame which honestly seemed a little bit of a hazard to me if it were accidentally turned over. My husband got the Chilean Sea Bass. It was good but not great. We’ve had better. Waiter was slightly aloof at times. Nice atmosphere but the music didn’t fit with the sexy ambience. The music throws off the vibe. They should choose more sexy lounge music. They asked if it was a special occasion when I made the reservation online but then didn’t even give us a complimentary dessert. So why ask? Honestly it wasn’t a great value for the $200 that we spent.

    The food was divine; cocktails, excellent; and service, gracious. However, the restaurant was stifling hot and it made the occasion extremely unpleasant. I would have appreciated advance notice so that we could have celebrated elsewhere and returned in more ideal conditions for Umi. Unfortunately, no notice was given and no accommodations were made to improve the experience (outside table, improved airflow with fans, etc). Our waiter said the hot, humid inside was due to an air conditioning system that could not keep up. For a sushi restaurant that has been open for years, this is not acceptable. It was just an average July day in Atlanta. For a $450 bill, we’ll go to another establishment that respects their diners by letting them know in advance about the issues. They certainly reached out several times to confirm but never mentioned we would sweat through our dinner.

    the food at Umi is truly the best in the world. It is unbelievably good and unique. There are only a few things on the menu that you would find on a menu at any other restaurant. All of the food is fresh and tasty and truly scrumptious

    They took 10 pm reservations and were rushing us out in an hour. That is not our fault. We did the chef’s selection and rushed through it. Yet again Umi is their own worst enemy. I cannot wait until Nobu opens and cleans their clock. We also were tipped extra believe with ZERO explanation on the bill and then over tipped as a result. The restaurant is so pretentious and way too into themselves.
