    It was ridiculously hot! A couple of fans were on near other tables, but the temperature was horribly uncomfortable! While service and food were great as usual, we could not wait to get our check and leave. We left soaked in sweat, to the point that we had to cancel the rest of our plans for the night. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE!!!!!!

    Tuna Tartar and the Lobster on a hot plate are our go-to dishes. The sushi rolls never disappoint. Instead of desert, we just order another roll.

    Service and ambiance made this restaurant! It had been difficult for my husband and I to get a reservation and had heard this was the best sushi place in Atlanta. Finally got us in and we weren’t disappointed. Our server was the best! He absolutely made us feel taken care of. Food was great- But we didn’t have anything that blew our mind. Everything came out very fresh and very fast! We were in and out within an hour lol but we will def be back to try some other menu items at the sushi bar!

    We are very grateful to have found Umi. Coming from California, we feared we would not find a GREAT sushi restaurant in Atlanta. Umi was right up there with some of our Los Angeles faves.

    Umi is Umi. A staple in the Atlanta dining market. Check the geography, and you know that it's Buckhead clientele. That is the only downside, :). The cuisine is phenomenally fresh, tight and a great exploration through exceptional service throughout the experience.

    Umi has always been our special treat. That said I feel it's getting a little stale. I haven't seen any new exciting dishes and those I love I'm finding a little repetitive. The food is always well prepared and delicious so if you haven't been to Umi in the past don't let this dissuade you.

    Once again we had a memorable experience celebrating our sons 28th birthday. Our server Ferry created his own Omakase based on his knowledge of our favorite dishes. He did not disappoint. We always recommend UMI when asked where to go for the best sushi dining experience in Atlanta.

    I’ve been going to umi for years but have not been since the pandemic began. The food and service was fantastic despite showing up a few minutes late and being told that we would have to exit our table at a specified time. There were plenty of open tables in the restaurant when the time came up. We ordered her usual and the price of the meal was approximately double from our last visit.

    An absolutely amazing sushi dining experience! Our server Michelle was a wonderful and guided us through an incredible 4 course dining experience that was second to none! If you're a die-hard sushi lover who doesn't care about the price, than this is a must-try spot. The ambiance was Japanese lounge-shiek, warm and inviting, and gave us the feeling like we were in another city far far away from Atlanta! Considering the damage we did, we could have actually bought a plane ticket to CA, but that's mostly due to the sake bottles we bought, so you might want to be mindful of the your wine budget before you just go ordering whatever sounds good :-)

    Servers were very attentive, food was excellent. My only complaint was being out of the only dessert we asked for when they literally just opened for the evening - Mochi Ice Cream is a staple to Japanese cuisine.

    Been going to umi for 9 years since they opened. This was the first time I left feeling like I didn’t get what I paid for. $600 before tip and the food was good, but not as excellent as I remember. The chef special madai nigiri was dry, the otoro box was bland and not fresh. I had to refill my water from my 6 year old sons glass. Overall it was a lot more expensive than it was just 6 months ago, and the overall experience was worse. Still an amazing restaurant, but not as good as it used to be. It’s jumped the shark, so to speak.

    Server wasn’t attentive. Often we had to wait longer than wanted for us to be checked on or to order more items. Bartenders was great, made fantastic drinks and very knowledgeable! A few good items (off menu) weren’t able to accommodate us as we really wanted them. We always got them before even on a Fridays/Saturdays but last night was Wednesday and it wasn’t that busy.
