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!

We did the $40 Omakase. It was all amazing except for one clam based one, but at least we were adventurous! The seat bottoms were the same height as our table which was a little different and made it tough on my bad back. Other than that everything was awesome!

Umi is always amazing. We have hit them up quite a few times, and often make a point of it while visiting Seattle. My parents were thoroughly impressed.

Good sushi generally. But since sushi rolls had been pre-prepared and left in a cool environment these were not great. Tasty but not freshly made.

Took my wife here for our Valentine's Day celebration. It was a great meal, service was fast and efficient. We were in the back area and it was cold and very loud so prepare for that. The food was delicious as usual and we had plenty of leftovers for the next day.

Crystal was our server. She is one of the BEST servers I’ve had in Seattle. She literally thought of all options for our high needs table: gluten free, vegan, etc ....

I brought my sister to dinner for her birthday. The food and service were stellar. It was a little uncomfortable to eat at the low table and it was loud for our taste. That being said, I am SOOOOO coming back!

Wait staff was fantastic. All of our food was really high quality, great tasting except for the Spider Roll. Something was off about that. Regardless, one of the better sushi restaurants I’ve been to in the US.

Must make reservation in advance. I had a party for 8 and am verified via Opentable. I received a verification text from restaurant 2 days prior- which I responded to. Then I had 2 different verification phone calls from restaurant- apparently they were extremely concerned I was going to stiff them. Anyway, we made it. A little crammed inside, and very loud- but place was nice, service was great, and food was pretty good. Not really traditional sushi, so be aware. Great drinks also. I would go back.
