Great atmosphere, customer service, and our waiter was super informed on all the dishes we were served. Loved loved loved. It’s pretty pricey, but super worth it especially for a date!

One of our favorites when we are in Atlanta. They did a great job with patio dining, providing more diners space to eat, yet keep socially distanced. The food is always well prepared, fresh and innovative, and the service is always good.

The service was extremely disappointing. We were told multiple times that we were under an hour and a half time restriction; however no one came to our table within the first fifteen minutes. Our cocktails did not arrive until after our first course and I had to flag a server down every time someone wanted to order another course or cocktail. My guests said the food was delicious but they would never be back.

We asked the hostess could we sit outside beside we had a reservation. He told us no it was occupied when clearly it wasn’t (social distance) a white couple asked the same question after we walked away and he escorted them to the seat we requested, Little did he know the third member of are party heard everything. They HAD NO RESERVATION Never have i been treated with such racism. I love the food and the waiter was awesome. My birthday was ruined and i would rather give my money to charity vs being discriminated against. I will let my followers of 44k aware. Do better we have enough to deal with in the world

Always looking forward to a meal and a cocktail from UMI! YUM!
Tonight was the first time I sat in the back dining room— Not my favorite! Service (from the waiter down) was a bit slow for a Wednesday. All in all, once I had all the sauces/condiments I needed ( relish wasabi, siracha, soy sauce, ginger) the food was delicious as usual. Ultimately, I just miss being able to stroll in at any point during opening hours to enjoy a few cocktails, sushi rolls, and refined ambiance. Until next time— ;)

We tried lots of things and were impressed with everything! The salmon appetizer, tako nigiri, and hurricane roll were some of our favorites. I got a yummy glass of Riesling and the fluffy cheesecake for desert...also delish. The atmosphere and vibe were just right. I loved the decor and low lighting; it was great for date night. It’s not cheap but definitely worth the splurge. Can’t wait to go back!

The only complaint I have is that our reso was for 8:30pm. We were 15-ish min late and then couldn’t figure out where to park so we showed up closer to 8:50pm. I called to ask them about parking, so they knew we were on our way and trying to get there, but they deleted our name from the list anyway which forced us to wait in line. We finally sat down around 9:15. It wasn’t a big deal but was frustrating because our meal was rushed because the kitchen was closing soon after we sat down.

It was just ok. We were sat at our table within about 10 minutes of checking in but once at our table the service was SLOW. We watched another group at the far at end of our table be seated after us and get most of their meal before our server had even come to take our order. Food was a tad over priced for the quantity but I suppose you are buying the experience and the location?

Another side note - it was very dark inside.

The food was fabulous as always. A few things to mention - was NOT a fan of the goathead mannequins. They were creepy! Also, we had to get drinks and wait outside for social distancing purposes. There were tables, but no chairs. Didn't enjoy my wine as much with no place to sit. The hour and a half timetable wasn't too bad.

I chose Umi because I expected the fish selection and quality to be top notch. It was, with the minor reduction of species availability due to Covid.
Preparations were excellent. From the miso to the agedashi to the nigiri. Hokkaido uni to die for. All other sushi also. Speedy and thoughtful service. Great Sake selection.

My one gripe is that we couldn’t find the restaurant. Ok. We are from out of town, but , like a number of Buckhead restaurants, this one is located in the center of an under construction corporate block and there is no sign or I’d for the entrance. Super. If you are expecting a speakeasy. A real pain if u are just trying to make your precious reservation.

The hostess was busy w chatting w the people in front of the line and it took us over 10 minutes to check in. As a result we checked in at 6.47 instead of 6.45 - our reservation was at 6.30 and they have a 15 minutes grace period. They threw a fuss and finally seated us when I told them that our daughter was going to college. Then they refused to let suborder desert because we were out of our 1 hour and 10 minutes - an u pleasant experience

Perfect dinner. Everything was ah-mazing...the clever ambiance, the delicious sushi (better than Nobu or any LA place I have been to) and staff/waitress was on it. Just a great evening overall. Can’t wait to go back when I visit my son at Emory.

My table wasn’t ready once I got there but they had a strict don’t be late wear a mask policy. My waiter I think his name was Kevin but can’t remember him even telling us. Also had to get other waiters to give me a menu code for my 5 guest. I called and let umi know this was a special occasion yet I had to remind my waiter. I’m used to coming to umi every week before quarantine at one point while in town but seems like after quarantine they lost their great service and turned a hot mess. I will surely not be coming here much like I used to. At least the food is still great. Service I was being nice and gave 3 out of 5.
