Umi Sake House is a unique Japanese cuisine restaurant in the Belltown area of Seattle featuring the highest quality seafood available in the Northwest, a large izakaya-style tapas menu, and boasting a sake list of over 60 imported Japanese bottles. The interior is multi-faceted, with a black slate tiled traditional dining room, a gorgeous 14 person capacity wooden sushi bar, a semi private "tatami" room which holds 12 people, a larger 25 person private dining room, an enclosed "back patio" casual dining room complete with tropical garden, a black concrete liquor bar with custom sake cocktails and fusion traditional cocktails, and a "front porch" casual dining area with a daily extended happy hour from 4-8pm. The variety of atmospheres allows for a different experience with every visit, and the vastness and quality of the menu does the same. For the budding sake enthusiast or the seasoned veteran, the sake menu at Umi is bottle for bottle the best found anywhere outside of Japan!

It was a nice dinner, with good company. It was a bit busy for the server. The food presentation was spectacular and tasted delicious!

This is literally the best sushi in town. Also, the calamari is world-class!

Stuck up, non-personal staff...
Squeezed between 2 drunk loud tables for a romantic birthday date
Over priced
Food presentation looked like a blind person without talent prepared the meal

My favorite Sushi restaurant in Seattle. Now granted I've never gone to another sushi restaurant in my almost two years living here, but the food is so good that I don't want to . Insert Kanye shoulder shrug.

Creative sushi with plenty other gluten free options.
I used to think that Sushi, while pretty, was a bit bland and boring. Umi Sake House's chefs a poets of flavors. The Sushi is of course gorgeous but also oh so very tasty. Don't miss the Lychee Lemonade, a sweet perfume and titillation of the senses...

Been coming for years, but seems like all of the rolls taste the same nowadays. Pretty good overall, but not an absolute gem like in year's past...

We tried to get seating at another sushi bar close by but the wait was long and we tried Umi based on a local’s recommendation. Really glad we did. We stumbled upon Umi’s happy hour which is a fantastic value. If the quality of the sashimi at happy hour is indicative of the quality rest assured any time will be good. In addition to sushi we tried the hot dishese such as the salmon collar which was fantastic. Good bar and ambiance, hip without being too hip. Friendly to all

Service was a bit lacking at the sushi bar. Sushi chef’s were pretty inattentive.

Umi has great sushi, environment and service! Their happy hour is a great value. Random, but definitely try the oyster shooter!
