UMI Ratings and Reviews
Umi is my favorite restaurant in the world. I don’t think I have ever taken the time to write a review about any restaurant, but there is an energy/ambiance at Umi that is unparalleled . Umi is my neighborhood restaurant with an international vibe. It is sophisticated, stylish, welcoming, exclusive, perfected, tasteful, gracious, and understated brilliance.
I went to UMI several times. I am feeling so disappointed this time. The food tasted not fresh at all. The server and assist manager explain the seafood arrive another day, but it never happen before, no matter in weekday or weekend. The sweet shrimp tasted so fishy. The sea bass and scallops tasted so hard. The fattest tuna looks dark in the middle. 对于一个吃货，我感觉餐厅的食材是最重要的.
Very disappointing experience with front host and service. Food was very good, but we were told multiple times that we would have to leave by 8 so that the next table could be seated. Completely ruined our experience and the meal. Terriblw way to welcome guests to what was supposed to be a fine dining experience. Will go elsewhere for sushi in Atlanta!
Underwhelmed. Service, atmosphere, desserts, and drinks were excellent. The food was just good. The two of us ordered multiple hot plates to sample them. Each one was just OK. The reputation and the menu had me excited but the Tuna Foie Gras let me down. The baked lobster and black cod were good but not excellent. Its the best I have had in Atlanta, but that really isn't saying much as this city has been underserved in this genre for a long time.
A frequent visitor here, and it never disappoints. This is great for any occasion or just to have a great culinary experience. I have to say that the service is fantastic. The wait staff is super attentive and helpful. It’s a vibrant scene, with small intimate tables or larger ones to accommodate larger groups. It’s a must do for anyone in the buckhead area and worth the drive if you are further out.
The service at the bar was outstanding. The cocktails were perfect. Personal favorite was the Hibiki cocktail. Hector provided the best service we've received in years. Everything, even down to the server assistants were on point, and their menu knowledge and presentation could not have been better. Mind blowing dinner that did not miss a single beat from beginning to end. A variety of dining experiences could be excellent here, but the Omakase is a guaranteed perfect culinary experience.
Was told Umi is said to be top 10 sushi restaurants in the US and coming from NYC my expectations were soaringly high and not all the way met, however Umi is unarguably excellent. The Kobe beef nigiri was amazing. Their specialty nigiri was impressive. Kate Hudson was eating behind us casually. Great experience! Will be back.
This was my second visit to UMI . My daughters favorite place , her birthday, so we ordered her favs. The lobster appetizer on the hot skillet sizzling in butter will melt in your mouth! It’s more tender and delicious than any I have ever tasted . We also loved the fried lobster rolls . And , there is an amazing chocolate ball filled with fruit and cream that you must order when you make a reservation if you want one . You bust the ball open and the fruit spills out . Fun and Fantastic! The food is AmaIng ! The atmosphere however is VERY NOISY , or it has been the 2 times I’ve been there . Also , the seating is very tight , tables very close together. Perhaps that’s why it seems so loud . That is the only con for me . The Amazingly Delishous food however makes it so worth it !!!
Great food. However, it takes at least 30-45 minutes to get seated from when you arrive and there are no stools or chairs to accommodate while you wait. So essentially there’s no where to sit and the bar is tight, and the tables by the bar are also in the way and can’t sit there. There shouldn’t be reservations if they can’t meet the time slots. Would not come back any time soon, I just get my sushi fix and leave. I’d rather go to MF Sushi in Inman Park where they are prompt and have equally great food!
The food and service was ridiculously GREAT! I've eaten sushi in Atlanta, New York, Las Vegas and LA regularly and this is world class. Always fresh, always fun. Otoro caviar is a must try. I've eaten there since they first opened and they still surprise me with how good they are today, years later. Thanks to chef Ito for the fantastic meal we had tonight!! Took two new sushi eaters there tonight and they can not wait to go back. So good! Just sooo good ;-)
