Fabulous dinner. Dining room very loud and crowded, even on a Tuesday. We ate in the bar area which was much quieter. Fantastic service too.

So good from atmosphere to service to food. My daughter said the chocolate molten cake was the best thing she’s ever eaten.

Umi, was a very busy, and packed place, but that did not stop us from getting amazing service, and having a great night. The food was absolutely delicious and the sake was stellar. I would very much recommend coming here for an all around great experience.

Wife and I went for her birthday. We both did the ito kase option, and didn’t pick wrong. Every dish was delicious, and creative to boot. Really enjoyed our experience, and will be back.

Love this restaurant! We are never disappointed with our evening here. And we are here at least twice a month. We go to Nobu when we are in NY and like Umi much better.

Aside from it being too dark to read the menu, which is in small black writing, it was a great. The service and food were great. Not inexpensive, of course, but worth it. Bring a phone with a light and you are good to go.

The Lobster was amazing. I would not think to order it, but my friend did and it was fantastic. The kamikaze, hurricane, and white fish rolls were excellent and I would definitely get them again.
My only complaint would be that it was a little loud & seating is very tight. Other than that, the quality of food was excellent.

it was great as always. Food and service are phenomenal. The one thing I can say is the lighting of the place is not ideal. During the spring/summer period depending on where you seat the sun coming from the main wall will bother you from 6pm until 8pm...

The omikase and the food is ultra fresh and first class. The merging of taste is wonderful and the balance of things to order and enjoy is top of the line for Japanese restaurants. However, the noise level is so loud every time we have visited that the waitresses need instructions on how to project their voices. Impossible to hear them. It is a 10 noise level out of 10. A suggestion might be to rug part of the place or put some soundproofing on the walls. In spite of superior food, we find it mind-numbing.

From walking into the restaurant until departure, Umi is a great dining experience. This was our 4th time and there has never been a disappointment. Chef Ito not only closely watches over the sushi chefs, but gets in and works alongside them. We were able to get seats at the sushi bar and enjoyed our chats with the chefs while watching their talent in the preparation. Our server knew when we needed something before we asked. She was not intrusive, knew the entire menu and conversed just enough to make the experience even better. The seafood is incredibly fresh and the knife skills bring out the very best in that high quality ingredient. I haven't eaten in every Atlanta sushi restaurant, more than several but not all of them. I cannot imagine any other providing a better dining experience.

The agedashi tofu appetizer was excellent. The 5-fish sashimi plate was very fresh and came quickly at 6 pm on a Sunday when all the tables were full. I would certainly eat here again although the noise level is high.

Never disappoints. Been here several times and it’s become a religion. The reason? - it’s the best tasting, best presented, freshest sushi I’ve ever had. It’s an energetic ambiance with similarly energetic wait staff. Recommendations? - Must have the Nigiri and Lobster Tobanyaki. Waygu beef seared on your table with shishito pepper and onions. Yellow tail jalapeño appetizer with Ponzu!
