Everything was great once you walk in! For first time visitors make sure you get exact instructions on how to navigate your way there. It's in a weird location and at night can be difficult to locate (the current side walk construction doesn't help).
However, once you get in Everything is exceptional from hostess greeting to dessert!

This place is absolutely fantastic. Dined here before for business and had to take my husband for valentines. We got there an hour earlier than our reservation so they escorted us to their private bar few doors down. From the dry cold sake, toro, Kobe beef, yellow tail, lobster, and other recommendations to last bite of our meal, it was awesome. Our waitress, Autumn was superb. We told her what we liked and she took care of everything. Fantastic experience and can’t wait to go back. The bar was perfect start to our special night, waitress recommended an awesome bottle of sake (southern beauty) and paired it with light appetizer (yellow tail with jalapeños) that started our fantastic journey to foodie’s dream. Really appreciated management accommodating us and allowing us to try their private bar. I think this is the best sushi restaurant in Atlanta. Definitely my favorite

It was a little frustrating that our reservation was at 9pm and we were not seated until close to 10pm, but I suppose certain circumstances in the restaurant world prevent every seating from being optimally timed.

Also, not sure how I feel about Freddy Freeman sitting with those Philies players. I mean, come on, they're divisional rivals.

Did dinner for 2 on a Tuesday night at 8:30 and the place was packed. I arrived earlier than my party and had to wait for all parties to arrive to be seated, which was fair.

The restaurant was loud but the ambience was good. The servers were very attentive and gave good recommendations for the dishes. I’m vegetarian so the choices were limited but our server recommended some amazing dishes such as the avocado salad.

Overall it was a good experience, good food combined with attentive service and upbeat ambience. Highly recommend

The place was absolutely bonkers. It was so load you could not hear yourself think. The price for the food was way above what it should have been. $20 for a order of Uni, that tastes like uni, from any other sushi restaurant in Atlanta! The only things that we ordered that was different from other sushi restaurants around town was the hamachi caviar and the otoro caviar. Other than those 2 dishes which were both priced over $25, everything else was just like any other sushi restaurant. We would go back, but for what it cost it was not worth it.

Food was excellent, as always. It’s quite loud in the dining room normally but we happened to be sitting next to a couple of women who were especially loud so it made it difficult to hear my colleague. Service was excellent.

Can you say rush? I’m sorry. I have a reservation. I have never been rushed more through a meal. Before I even finished they were taking my plate and asking about dessert. I was still chewing! Please. I get that you are popular but that is just rude. How can I tip 20 percent when I’m being rushed through dinner and the check is brought before dessert is served. Not cool Umi!

As usual Umi doesn't disappoint.
Service, however, this visit was the ultimate I've ever experienced. We were served by Paul, who is probably one of the coolest, most patient, respectful server I've ever had there.
Loved my dining experience including the new brussel sprouts appetizer.

Deelliishhh!! Only downfall was portion size of our starters... Don’t expect to be able to split a starter between 2 or maybe 3 people! But I got a seared tuna salad and the size was more than enough AND delicious. Aesthetic of the restaurant is very dark and cozy, but sleek. Would be perfect for a date night. Bill was pretty pricey, and although delicious, probably will not be returning too soon for the sake of my savings account!!
