    The waiter had minimal interaction with us. He only livened up and seemed to care about our table when I reminded him we had been waiting on our Wagyu Nigiri for nearly an hour and he realized he forgot to put it in. Putting the dish on the house is never expected, but always a nice gesture when a mistake is made. He did not take it off the bill. The food was amazing but we were disappointed in the lack of service.

    My manager drove 9 hours to surprise me for my birthday. My wife and I made last minute dinner reservations at UMI for three. Before leaving Alpharetta, my manager informed me that he only brought shorts/flip flops and a suit with boots with him so I called UMI to check if there was a dress code. UMI’s receptionist informed us that there was a business casual dress code and we had reserved a patio table. It was 90 degrees out so I explained the situation and requested a table inside. They did not have space inside. I asked if they could make an exception on the flip flops and they refused. Denying both requests was reasonable since I was asking them to make an exception on what they explained was a strict policy. We were left with no choice but to try and cancel the reservation and go someplace else for our special occasion. While attempting to cancel, the receptionist informed us there would be a $80 charge per customer for a no show. I asked to speak to a manager and requested they waive the $240 penalty in light of the circumstances and she outright refused citing their policy. IMO, that is terrible customer service! A very similar past incident at a Michelin start restaurant in London yielded a totally different outcome and while I believe UMI’s food is worthy of at least 1 Michelin star, they need to work on their customer service in order to get there.

    It is a bit pricey - I suppose what I don't like is the tables are small for this price point. I spent 360 dollars for two people - that did include a 50 dollar 1/2 bottle of sake and one glass of wine. The sashimi is very pricey but outstanding quality. I just feel that I should have more space for this price point.

    Was awesome as always… however wanted to celebrate my wife’s birthday with friends, could only get a reservation for the 2 of us, which was great. However both tables next to us could have accommodated 4 as they only had couples sat on them. Disappointed that our friends couldn’t enjoy with us!

    I made a reservation and did not get seated for another 40 minutes. By the time I ordered my food it was one hour past the reservation time. The waiter got my order wrong and brought 2x the portion of sushi I had ordered. I let him know (because I didn’t want to be charged double) and he apologized and then took the food back to the kitchen and came out with the original order. At this point I was starving and it added insult to remove the food from my table because they made an error. Are they going to give the food to someone else? After all this, I got an apology from the manager and that was all. Poor customer service and need to improve scheduling so that people get seated on time.

    Food and service are incredible. So was the bill. The black cod or the otoro caviar may be the single tastiest bites in Atlanta. If you’re onboard to pay a pretty penny for the experience, it is worth it and you will have an incredible meal.

    Very loud. Got seated and no one waited on us for 20-30 minutes. Ran out of dessert. Crispy rice tuna fish tasted over done. Cod was not great. Heard great things about this place, but it did not live up to the hype

    I don’t usually leave poor reviews but this experience was a major letdown and disappointment. When my wife and I sat down for dinner, it took nearly 20 min just for someone to greet us and give us water. We noticed that there were other tables that were seated after us that received timely service and had their drinks and food before we did. Even after we ordered and reordered there were items that were missed. The food was good and the drinks were tasty but there was major service issue for us. We also observed that the other tables that received better service did not look like us. I would hate to think that prejudice or racism was at play here but I have also heard that Umi has a less than positive history serving black people. If you are black, I do not recommend. There are lots of other great restaurants in Atlanta that will provide the level of service one would expect when dining.
