We took my mom here for her 50th birthday! We did not like the tight corner table they put us at... and our waiter took forever to come to us (which isn't like UMI at all) so I walked to the hostess stand and asked to be moved. They moved us to Kevin's section, who is an outstanding server. The ambiance/vibe was so much better there and way more comfortable for a party of 4. He was so on top of our water, drinks, taking our orders and running out the food. Great experience. One of my top favorite restaurants in Atlanta.

UMI Restaurant is by far the best Japanese restaurant we've ever eaten in. The food, service, and ambiance are all just sensational. No place we've eaten in in the ATL area even come close. Many dishes have custom made sauces and every dish seems to stand out on it's own.

The art installation by Shanequa Gay was outstanding - such a brilliant way to create social distance that adds to the experience. Well done, Umi.

Great night out for our 20th Anniversary. Best sushi in the ATL and the way they set up the social distancing tables was genius with the mannequins. Just one of the best spots in town.

It is like a car wash. You enter, order your food, eat it and have no more than one hour and a half to do it. You are invited to leave immediately after. Don’t spend too much time talking, just eat!

This restaurant has a sophisticated menu and ambiance. Although this is primarily a sushi restaurant, there are hot/"kitchen" items on the menu. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meals. Portion sizes are moderate here; since they do not offer take away packaging, diners should be mindful of the amount of items they purchase. Additionally, since there is overlap on the menu of items you can find at lower-priced sushi restaurants, I recommend ordering the more unusual items, such as the wagyu and fatty tuna sushi, as opposed to spicy tuna and chicken teriyaki.

One of our favorites when we are in Atlanta. They did a great job with patio dining, providing more diners space to eat, yet keep socially distanced. The food is always well prepared, fresh and innovative, and the service is always good.

The service was extremely disappointing. We were told multiple times that we were under an hour and a half time restriction; however no one came to our table within the first fifteen minutes. Our cocktails did not arrive until after our first course and I had to flag a server down every time someone wanted to order another course or cocktail. My guests said the food was delicious but they would never be back.

We asked the hostess could we sit outside beside we had a reservation. He told us no it was occupied when clearly it wasn’t (social distance) a white couple asked the same question after we walked away and he escorted them to the seat we requested, Little did he know the third member of are party heard everything. They HAD NO RESERVATION Never have i been treated with such racism. I love the food and the waiter was awesome. My birthday was ruined and i would rather give my money to charity vs being discriminated against. I will let my followers of 44k aware. Do better we have enough to deal with in the world

Always looking forward to a meal and a cocktail from UMI! YUM!
Tonight was the first time I sat in the back dining room— Not my favorite! Service (from the waiter down) was a bit slow for a Wednesday. All in all, once I had all the sauces/condiments I needed ( relish wasabi, siracha, soy sauce, ginger) the food was delicious as usual. Ultimately, I just miss being able to stroll in at any point during opening hours to enjoy a few cocktails, sushi rolls, and refined ambiance. Until next time— ;)

We tried lots of things and were impressed with everything! The salmon appetizer, tako nigiri, and hurricane roll were some of our favorites. I got a yummy glass of Riesling and the fluffy cheesecake for desert...also delish. The atmosphere and vibe were just right. I loved the decor and low lighting; it was great for date night. It’s not cheap but definitely worth the splurge. Can’t wait to go back!

The only complaint I have is that our reso was for 8:30pm. We were 15-ish min late and then couldn’t figure out where to park so we showed up closer to 8:50pm. I called to ask them about parking, so they knew we were on our way and trying to get there, but they deleted our name from the list anyway which forced us to wait in line. We finally sat down around 9:15. It wasn’t a big deal but was frustrating because our meal was rushed because the kitchen was closing soon after we sat down.

It was just ok. We were sat at our table within about 10 minutes of checking in but once at our table the service was SLOW. We watched another group at the far at end of our table be seated after us and get most of their meal before our server had even come to take our order. Food was a tad over priced for the quantity but I suppose you are buying the experience and the location?

Another side note - it was very dark inside.

The food was fabulous as always. A few things to mention - was NOT a fan of the goathead mannequins. They were creepy! Also, we had to get drinks and wait outside for social distancing purposes. There were tables, but no chairs. Didn't enjoy my wine as much with no place to sit. The hour and a half timetable wasn't too bad.
