First of all the food was excellent as expected. This place reminds me of the same quality sushi from Japan and Hong Kong that I have experienced.

Highly recommended.

Food was fine. Our waitress was great. I had to average out her (good) service with the bartender’s “service”. I’ll elaborate

I arrived a little early with one of my companions and we sat at the bar to wait for the others. I offered to buy drinks. He ordered a tequila. I’m sure it was a great tequila! Our bill for two drinks was $75! That tequila was over $65 for ONE DRINK. At that price, the bartender should have mentioned it. Really. I already find this place pretentious but everyone else wants to go because it’s so “Hot”. Not for me I guess.

Food was great ! Average to poor service. Found it very dimly lit - needs to be slightly better illuminated. Very very noisy. Can’t have any meaningful conversation. Food is pricy as is with most sushi restaurants.

Had fun. Music made it hard to talk. It made it difficult for the waitress to understand my order causing it to be incorrect. They were nice and fixed it quickly, but the situation should never have happened in the first place. Lower the volume and this place is great!

Tight table, loud ambiance. sat with strangers at the same long table. Had the umi chef menu and food was too salty, couldn’t feel the flavor, raw fish didn’t taste fresh and pieces were way too big to chew, there was no sushi at all, just raw fish and cooked rich, desert and miso soup were mediocre, the only thing I liked was the coffee. Bill came out to 220 for 2 people and nothing was delicious as other sushi places I’ve been to around the US. Save your money

I have been here many times over the last couple years. Food is always great.
The noise level was totally off the charts.
Could barely hear the server. He even complained.
I enjoy a vibrant scene with good music but I can’t return and enjoy this great place again unless they decide to control the noise level.
Everyone in the place was yelling to override the music blaring.

We two had a dinner at umi and our server Hector charged us 20% gravity in the bill directly without ask. When we asked is this the rule for every table? He said something but not always. We want an appropriate reason, but he can’t give us and said he can cancel it. We can’t understand, we are polite and didn’t do anything troubled, we spent more than 160 dollars plus 30 tips within 1 hour for 10 pieces of sushi.
It is not an incident. The only reason I could say, is possibly because our Asian face, and we didn’t wear in rich. So he judged us by his mind, he don’t think we will pay tips, he’s racism.
The whole experience was terrible and we are so disappointed by the end, I won’t recommend it to anybody.
Also we ordered the sweet shrimp sashimi which on menu said it comes with shrimp head serve on side, but it never come until we have already finished the dishes and ask for it

We order a drink and it wasn't great - advised the waitress and all she did was asked what was wrong with it and she would bring the missing ingredients....then the cod tasted frozen/over cooked - when questioned the waitressed said it was fresh and that she will talk to the chef about it....and that was all. No follow up after. The place is loud, dark and food actually mediocre. However I do have to say that the desserts were great.

We had a wonderful dinner at UMI. When they couldn't seat us right away at our 8 PM reservation time because the table prior was slow to close out , they immediately sat us in the bar seating area which was crowded to wait. They brought us several free apps and were very attentive. Great service and food was wonderful!

After trying several Atlanta sushi places, this is clearly the best food IMO. Dessert is also stellar, especially the green tea souffle. It can be a little cramped, as the tables are close together, but the food and service more than make up for it.

Service was impeccable. Food was awesome as always, but really the service made the experience perfect. She was available when needed and absent when not. It was almost as if she could anticipate needs at the perfect time. Strongly recommend Umi for a consistently excellent experience.

Didn’t have our wine selection chilled (offered to chill it while we waited! Ugh) and ran out of the Tuna appetizer right before we ordered. Server was mediocre and it was so loud. Food was great. Very much a scene.
