They refused to service our party of 6 because one member of our party had a shellfish allergy. This was after I filled out a form and guaranteed our reservation for 6 people with a credit card. So our entire party had to leave after they made my friend cry. Clearly they are riding this wave of popularity which has gone to their heads...their five minutes of local fame will be over soon when the next sushi hot spot opens and I’m sure they will regret treating their clientele this way. It’s ok because we walked across the sidewalk and had a better meal at Chops, who seated us immediately and serviced a food allergy properly, by actually washing their knives and food utensils. Get over yourselves, Umi.

Food was spectacular and the service was spot on. Little noisy so if your looking for quiet intimate dinner it might be a challenge to hear your dinner partner.

The food here was amazing. I took my partner for her 22nd birthday, and we both agreed it was some of the best food we had ever had. The fish was very, very tender, the Brussels sprouts had tons of flavor, and the cocktails were great. Her favorite dish was the yellowtail jalapeno starter; mine was the otoro nigiri, as it literally melted in my mouth. The service was amazing, too. 4 different people were all working on our table, and we never had to seek out anyone. If I can ever afford to go back here, I 100% will!

Compare to all the Japanese restaurants we have at home in Hawaii, this restaurant is surely overpriced. Food and ingredient are fresh, and the service is very good. However, I am not used to eat Japanese food in a very Westernized place with dark light and servers in suits. A different kind of experience though.

The hostesses are not very welcoming or friendly. We have always tolerated the poor hostess experience for the sushi. But the sushi is no longer the best in Atlanta. Eating out is not just about the food; it is the overall experience from the moment you walk in the door until you leave the restaurant.

Food and service was good. Place is way too packed - tables are small and too close together. Loud and light is dim making it impossible to read the menu without using your phone’s light. Overall, ok, but if I want to eat good sushi I’d rather go to Tomo or Hayakawa.

Our waitress disappeared in the middle of us ordering our meal, and then we had to ask three different servers to flag her down.

Also, the Unagi nigiri was slathered in way too much eel sauce, and the restaurant ran out of Aji nigiri before 9:00PM. The sauce for the shrimp tempura appetizer lacked any flavor whatsoever.

Overall, the food was subpar, and the restaurant itself was far too loud for anyone who does not enjoy screaming to be heard across a table.

Absolutely incredible evening! The food was brilliant. We're still talking about it two days later. The service was impeccable. Attentive, gracious and knowledgeable servers who made some fantastic recommendations. Can't think of a better way to spend our anniversary evening.

As a New York/LA sushi snob, I gotta say I was really impressed. Great, fresh fish. Lively, intimate space. Gracious, informed staff. The hostess, Ashley, is incredible. My only issue is the restaurant is extremely loud. Fun, festive, but really tough to have a conversation.

expensive - but the quality and the selection of fish was outstanding. i was in atlanta for a meeting, had only one free evening open for dinner and it was an easy choice to eat here again. only issue was that it is a little noisy, so hard to talk.

Food was fine, not worth what we got. I suspect the rolls were not the right thing to get, but should not have been so lackluster. When we checked in they couldn't find our reso - then when they did did not apologize - and we got no acknowledgement of our anniversary and were seated at a communal table. All in all, pretty disappointing considering our expectations.
