    Some type of table lighting, something small so the food can be seeing Odd request, otherwise the food and service was absolutely excellent. Our waiter that we had was attentive and provided excellent service and knowledge of the food courses.

    Amazing as always. Umi is my favorite restaurant in the city. I go when I want to splurge. Must try on every visit Miso Soup, Rock Shrimp Tempura - Spicy, and as for the sushi I get the chef’s special nigiri Hamachi Caviar, Sake Aioli, and Waygu nigiri… this time around for the hot dish I got the brussel sprouts and black miso cod. Topped off with Lychee Martinis… perfect night. Always worth the splurge.

    This is not your average sushi place. The ambience is classy, the crowd is sophisticated and the food is not to be topped. This might be the most sought after table in Atlanta. There were 4 of us and we shared most items that we ordered. The avocado salad is remarkable, as is the spicy tuna on crispy rice. Other favorites are salmon aioli, new page roll and the duck entree. Having mentioned those items, we have never been disappointed with anything we have ordered. The bar is small but also a great place to have a drink and a bite if the restaurant is not available.

    Best sushi in Atl, hands down. Everything we tried was amazing. We went on a Thursday and did have to wait 20 mins past our reservation but that was expected. Our waitress Michele was so nice and attentive. Amazing date spot!

    Everything was fantastic. Our server ( Patrick ) was spectacular and the food was excellent. The noise level was miserable, but nothing to be done about that. I’ve eaten here serval times and it’s always incredibly loud. I would recommend and come back.

    Service was the slowest I’ve ever experienced usually umi is on it, waited 15 mins just for someone to come to the table and then waited 45 mins for drinks it felt like we were forgotten about. Meanwhile the table that sat after us already had their food. 2 hours for dinner that consisted of one roll, 2 nigiri, lobster toban yaki is absurd.

    Book a reservation well in advance, as Umi in Buckhead Atlanta is dishing out the best sushi in Atlanta! The menu is very versatile and has something for all types of appetites and preferences. Build your own omakase experience or put yourself in the hands of one of the chefs, either is sure to dazzle. The ambiance is lively and low lit, with a bustling of servers scurrying around from the kitchen to tables, bringing dishes in perfect harmony to the pace of each table. Modern chill electronic music is subtly keeping a beat to energize the restaurant and the decor is modern and natural elements. Although Atlanta is inland and far from a coastal area, the freshest seafood and ingredients are all available and served at Umi. Located in a culinary corridor, with several great dining locations, look for a large dark brown wooden structure, resembling a square fence, or box, as there is nothing indicating a restaurant.

    The food is always delicious! We took our 4 year old daughter and she had an amazing experience. It was her first time learning to use chopsticks and become acclimated to Japanese cuisine. Danny was a great server, very knowledgeable and was able to advise us on alternative food options since one of us is allergic to shellfish.

    It was EXTREMELY loud out in the patio and had to be asked to move. Not worth the $500 I spent.
