Amazing as usual. We try to visit Umi every time we're in town and it never fails to amaze us. The food fresh, the staff is attentive, and the environment is welcoming. I recommend making reservations well in advance since they fill up very quickly.

Best sushi in Atlanta, but try it for yourself. The service was helpful and our drinks never went below half empty. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a special night out.

The two top tables are far too close together and the noise level makes it difficult to have a conversation.

We had the most amazing experience at Umi. I made the reservation as a business dinner. Our group was absolutely blown away by the food, atmosphere, and service. Our server, Paul, was so knowledgeable and helpful. He put together the perfect selection of dishes so that we could try the very best that Umi has to offer! A special “thank you” to Farshid for making it all happen!!!!!

If I could eat at UMI every week I would. Not only is the food exceptional, but the service is unparalleled. I went to UMI for some cooked sushi before my next chemo infusion. After requesting a secluded table for my sister and I due to my treatment, UMI went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and had a memorable night. UMI is a restaurant that truly strives to make each diner have an incredibly special experience. I cannot thank the staff and management of UMI enough for taking care of my sister and I. I think of their eel roll daily and cannot wait until I am back for more.

Truly, thank you, Umi.

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.
