Excellent in all respects — food, service, atmosphere and, did I mention, the food!!! I love that my daughter and I can eat the best sushi in town and such creative dishes as the uni tempura while my husband, who eats no fish/seafood, also finds Umi his favorite restaurant in Atlanta. The only thing I’d change is to pop the lighting a tinge - it was so dark we couldn’t read the menus. Favorite meal!

We took friends to celebrate their wedding. We had a wonderful meal! Our waitress Michelle was amazing and helped me to order to make sure the non sushi eaters would be happy too. She refilled our glasses without us knowing, although she always asked before ordering another bottle is saki for us. Reserve the chocolate dessert that you break with a mallet when you make your reservation! Our friend who isn’t a sushi eater loved all of the sushi she tried.

We love everything about Umi, especially the staff. They spoil us for every other Japanese restaurant. It’s the only restaurant we go to for Japanese food.

First time at Umi! Fabulous place to enjoy sushi and other delicacies! Our server Kevin was great, very attentive. Would have liked our cocktails before food was served but that’s the only negative I can think of. We will definitely be back!

Food is great but the front of the house service is horrible.... there was a table in the bar that was empty for the 26mins while I waited for my daughter and the girls said no I can’t sit there that it was going to be taken in 7mins. (No one sat there) Then finally the manager came over and let me sit with my daughter till our table was ready. I love this place, the food is great but the girls at the front are rude and really pretentious..... I lived in japan for a year and grew up in a Japanese household and I get the culture, but they take it over the top there. I go there at least 1 time a month and it’s been like that a few times. Again, the food is to die for! It’s just really not very friendly in the front of the house. I wish that would change, there are not many places I enjoy more then here!

High end - Elegant place. The food was exquisite (shrimp tempura, kobe-beef nigiri, and the crunch lobster box). Service as always beyond expectation. We'll miss Dickson dearly

Excellent experience from start to finish. Love the ambiance. Service was exceptional. Quality of food was as good as I've had in Atlanta. Pricing was a bit high as I've had similar quality of sushi for cheaper but overall experience was exceptional

Service was impeccable. Try the lobster and the tempura lobster roll. Both are two die for. The dessert ( forgot the name) in the shape of a chocolate ball was also awesome.

Everything aside from the noise level was spectacular. The food was sensational, the service immaculate and everyone was extremely friendly. I do wish that you could implement some acoustic design in your restaurant so that you could easily have a conversation with the person across from you...
Thank you for a lovely evening.

We loved our experience at Umi. The food was so fresh and inventive. I highly recommend the avocado salad, sashimi sampler plate, and the shrimp tempura in the creamy spicy sauce. It was a very busy restaurant and was worth the expense for authentic, good sushi. Plan ahead to get reservations at a decent time.

We came here on NYE, and while the restaurant was packed as usual it was an exciting ambience. We were seated later than our reservation, but the restaurant’s excellent customer service made up for it. We ordered the yellowtail, Otoro and spicy tuna crispy rice as our appetizers. Exceptional food - the yellowtail was my favorite appetizer. We also ordered the lobster tempura and kamikaze rolls and they were the best sushi rolls I’ve ever had in my life. Our waiter Jonathan was very pleasant like the rest of their staff. We’ll definitely be back!
