In addition to the great sushi, I have always enjoyed the clean & modern atmosphere. All the staff we've ever encountered here are always super friendly too.

Loved the food here, all of the sushi was delicious and we had to order extra ice cream because we were so pleased the first time around. This was my first time at Umi, but definitely won't be my last!

Small sushi restaurant in a strip mall. Very empty when we arrived at 7:30. Fish was not very fresh- mushy.

3rd time at Umi. For Japanese and Sushi in the area, Umi is the best option. It's modern, clean, food and service are good. Some of the prices are high especially for the area - beef teriyaki for some reason at $19 is quite high. Tell me it's grass-fed and pasture raised, then we're in business. Some of the boxes could probably be shared by 2 so those would be a good value, as are the soups. Sushi is decent though not the best and some of the rolls have just too many frills (the only lobster option is smothered by 3 types of fruit.)
Mochi ice cream had freezer burn. It is my firm belief that if you can't send your best out of the kitchen, you apologize and tell the customer that it's not available. Don't serve it!

This was my second time at Umi. We were there on a Saturday shortly after opening at 4:30. The service was unbelievably slow; there seemed to be 2 servers for about 6 tables by the time we left (2-3 at the time we arrived.) Both of our servers came by infrequently; I had to get up to seek them out on more than 1 occasion. Our experience was lengthened by at least 30 minutes due to this. Our entrees did not take long, but the dessert (ice cream and mochi ice cream) took over 10 minutes. Service was very nice and friendly; just extremely slow and infrequent. The food is good, though the prices are a little high for the area. We shared 1 roll, 5 entrees, and 1 dessert and somehow that came out to $145, almost 30 per person. Seems high for what we had.
