We absolutely love this place. Everything we order is always delicious. We took my dad for his birthday and he was blown away at everything we ordered.
What a cool place to hang out . Great ambience although a bit noisy if you want to carry conversation you may need to raise your voice a bit. Besides all usual japanese dishes, the sashimis ordered was extremely fresh and mouthwatering. Bartender did great job by making my special requested drink, the there desserts we ordered were all fantastic.
When our waitress left for an emergency, they forgot to assign us a new waitress. We waited a while for our food.
We were seated under the thermostat; it was turned up 3-4 times while we were there. That evening they didn’t give me my 100 points. I had to call the restaurant.
Other than the problems, I like the food.
Food was great! It was super busy so I don’t blame the service issue! This is a great place for good sushi and a fun time!
Very enjoyable dinner. Quite busy.
Overrated. Sushi was not very fresh. Will go back to Japonessa.
Best sushi in Seattle. You can’t beat the quality, service, or price.
The fish was amazingly fresh and top shelf quality. Service was good and the cocktails were unique and flavorful. Sushi roll presentation was also unique fresh and very easy to share. Black sesame ice cream was a first for me and one I will order again. Excellent!
Amazing! Crushed it as always!! Nice job
The freshest, melt in your mouth sashimi - love the white salmon! The Three Devils roll has a strawberry-habanero sauce is to die for!!
Great as always ! I do wish their specialty drinks were on happy hour, but over all great.
This has to be the best sushi, not just in Seattle, not just in America, but in the whole world. All other sushi restaurants have been ruined for me. I will dream of Umi for years to come. So delicious. Stop reading and go eat there now.
Specialty Rolls are always amazing and you get so much for such a great price, and here are so many different options to choose from. Happy hour is awesome! I did mention that we were attending for my friends birthday and I was a little sad they didn’t do anything special for her. Otherwise the atmosphere is very chill and great ambience, great for date night. I’ve recommended this place to a lot of my friends:)
The best sushi in Seattle. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Seattle. The fish was so fresh and the service was fast.
I have been going to UMI since it opened. I live in NY but work in Seattle for the last 18 years. The fish is outstanding. Great atmosphere. Never had a bad meal and it is a "must visit" during any stay in Seattle
The sushi was excellent! Very fresh. And the service was great.
An extensive menu with a large range of sushi and sashimi available. The nabeyaki udon was delicious, although my friend's grilled salmon was a little overdone and dry. It was very loud out in the main dining area with many people coming and going.
Umi is a good sushi restaurant that I believe is overpriced. The food is OK (nothing exceptional) for Seattle. They have a good bar and the ambience is good energy. They should offer a seven days a week early and late happy hour. I have had better sushi in many places throughout the Seattle area but Umi offers late night dining options that many of the others do not. And what is this one piece nigiri pricing all about??? This place is good for those moving up the Sushi value chain but not a place that I would take friends or business associates if I wanted to show them what Seattle has to offer from a sushi perspective.
Good food, friendly service. Very loud and we were sped through dinner to accommodate a later reservation. It was a little JV.
Crazy expansive selections on both food and beverage menu. Enjoyed the variety and overall food was delish. Place was very loud to hold a conversation and tables way too small for a large group with tons of sushi. Makes it a cramped feeling, not great. They do last call for happy hour 15 minutes in advance- that's a bummer.
Great place to go!
Upbeat environment and an amazing, dynamic menu. A favorite!
I love this place, def not my first rodeo BUT damn it’s so loud! Lol I couldn’t hear myself or my husband speaking. That being said, I don’t mind the noise cause everything else is super legit. Food is always good and the service is top tier. Our waiter was too nice and helpful. We were seated right away, but absolutely gotta make a Rez! This is hands down one of my fav spots to dine at in Seattle. But this is my favorite sushi spot for sure. I’m not into fresh dig sushi, my other half hates it, but everything else is ridiculous. I would give this place 9 out of 10 stars for sure.
Love it but just too loud
Really helpful waiter - ordered a couple of different sakes and the obekase (chefs choice sashimi) and a monster roll (goldilocks)
Busy and fairly noisy - not a venue for a romantic tete a tete
Here for a few more days and planning to go back
A little too noisy for conversation. However, the service was excellent and the Sushi was outstanding. This was our first visit and will return!
Meh. I bet we could’ve gotten better sushi elsewhere (at least I hope!). This place is too hyped. The Yelp reviews say this place had the best sushi ever, but I beg to differ. Not sure what kind of sushi everyone else is eating, but this place is way over priced for not-fresh stuff.
Chirashi bowl was very tasty with a good variety. It comes at a premium at 50% higher than other comparable bowls in the area. Higher prices expected in Belltown, Seattle.
Food was amazing, no complains. Serer was very slow to take our order and to check on us, not friendly either.
Out waiter Song was absolutely amazing and made the whole night. Would go back just because of him.
Good food. Very Creative and delicious but nessecery authic sushi.
Umi is a perennial winner. I go there quite often. The food is always great. The service equally good.
We had a great experience at Umi Sake House. I loved the ambiance inside - it's very trendy! The rolls were tasty and very big (10-15 pieces). There was good variety of rolls and kitchen items. We also enjoyed the free edamame appetizer. We ordered 5 rolls between 3 people and were stuffed! Would definitely recommend/return.
The adame tasted like fish. Wasn't cooked right either. The sushi was good, but not great. It used to be a lot better.
So good! The spicy ginger tofu was amazing as was the sushi!
Good sushi. Not the best I’ve ever had, but a great variety. Lots of spicy options on the menu, and solid quality. I would go back for sure.
We weren’t impressed with this place at all. First of all, I made my reservation for a standard seating. We arrived 30 minutes earlier, and transferred to the bar. We ordered our drinks and a appetizer at the bar. 10 minutes later, they sent us a text message saying that our table is ready. We rushed our appetizer and head back to the front. They told us that they can give us a sushi bar seating. We had to accept it because we didn’t want to wait longer since we closed our tap at the bar.
Decoration is old. Restaurant needs an immediate renovation. We sat at the sushi bar. There were 2 sections. One section right in front of where we were sitting, closed the station earlier. They cleaned the sushi bar while we were eating our dinner right in front of them.
Sushis are prepared in rush. Ingredients were not so great. Quality in taste and presentation was missing.
This is probably my favorite place to have sushi because the rolls are huge and delicious. My boyfriend and I also joke that it’s “the place with never ending water” because we have never been able to finish our glass without it being refilled, which is great! I would say the only downside is that it is super noisy so it’s hard to have a conversation.
Our family celebrated a birthday at Umi and had a spectacular time. The food was totally delicious and the service was excellent. We will be back!!
Best sushi in the country
