Umi is a hidden gem of Pittsburgh. My husband and I went here for the first time and loved it. The vibes of the restaurant are very cool and authentic. The food was amazing and they surprisingly have a great and unique dessert menu. Highly recommend!
Always great and pricey but great nonetheless. Fresh ingredients skillfully prepared.
Beautiful food and great service every time.
For the price the sushi offerings werd very small and, therefor, over priced. I went to a similar restaurant on Lawrenceville where sushi was just as tasty, the portions larger and more reasonably priced and the ambiance just as pleasant.
Umi used to be the best sushi in town but sadly, no more. My yellowtail with jalapeño tasted bland & fishy! Not one new dish on the menu. Way over-priced for very small pieces of sushi. Decor is tired and worn out. So disappointed.
New Years eve
Our favorite restaurant anywhere. Mr. Shu is a genius, the service is amazing and the food is to die for.
Worst omakase experience ever. Got the same fish twice with only a raw garlic being added. The chef put cream cheese on one of the nigiri and a sliced cherry tomato. Plated were dirty and they used the same sweet sauce for almost every dish. Waste of money.
I have had Ben a server multiple times now. He is very knowledgeable on the menu and cares deeply for his guests experience. Ben is an asset to Umi. I look forward to dining here again. Food and service always exceed expectations.
Way too much money for the value delivered
The sushi and the fish (Black Cod) were outstanding.
The Fish Tempura not so much, but I don't know of any restaurant in Pittsburgh that has real tempura (as done in Japan).
Overall, a good experience, with excellent service, if a bit pricey.
Enjoyed everything about the dining experience. First the valet service was excellent in service. The waiter explained the menu and ingredients of the cocktails. Have great recommendation for a unknoweledged sushi diner. The food was amazing.
The food is generally good, but seemed that every dish come with the same sweet ponzu sauce. Other than that it’s all good
This is my favorite restaurant over the past 14 years when I first was introduced. Amazing sushi , miso cod, red snapper with truffle etc. everything is amazing.
Very meager portions for the $$ price. $9 for 2 skimpy pieces of vegetable Tempura - really? Had to walk up two very dimly lit sets of stairs - about 35 steps. For the elderly, this was very difficult. If there was disabled access; i.e. elevator, we didn't see it. Would not recommend this restaurant.
As always the sushi and other plates are very good. The quality of the food is outstanding. After many years of coming here, the creativity needs to be increased on the menu.
Great, will be going back!
We had the omakase and the food is very, very good although I would have liked to have had one more hot dish. The real problem was a table of six who were incredibly loud. So much so, that many other diners started complaining to management. I would like to go again and try it one more time.
The restaurant is wonderful.. our table was great it was the 6 top next to us that has never dined at a nice establishment before. They were loud and drunk!! I'm surprised the wait staff didn't politely ask them to quiet down. It was our anniversary and we almost had to move tables because we had a hard time hearing one another talk... once they left the evening was very enjoyable.
