Hostess was somewhat pleasant but was clearly annoyed by something going on outside. Some people were outside celebrating a birthday in a way that was distracting to everyone else. We started with the calamari. It was delicious. I ordered the free/range chicken and my date ordered steak (NY strip). We both agreed that they were tender but lacked a little flavor. The drinks were very tasty. We ordered four of the specialty cocktails. I highly recommend the drink with an egg white in it (check the drink menu). Our waiter was pretty busy, so he didn’t talk to us much. We would have appreciated some recommendations. However, he was nice and our orders weren’t delayed by it. It was pretty hard to maintain a conversation in the area we were seated due to a large party being next to us and the music. If I ever return I would request something more secluded. Overall the ambiance was great, the food was good, and the people were OK. This was my first time in Baltimore, so I appreciated the fact that the restaurant is waterfront.

We had a reservation for outdoor seating and arrived 5 minutes early. A couple walked in directly in front of us and stated to the hostess they did not have a reservation, but would like to get a table outside. The hostess seated them outside. I then told her the name our RESERVATION was under and she rudely told me it would be a 30 minute wait! I looked outside and noticed she seated the couple at a 4-top table. Clearly she messed up. I didn’t want to start an argument so we went to the bar to wait. My guests and I found the hostess rude and the absolute worst impression for a guest to receive. I would not come back if it wasn’t for an excellent and kind server, and the delicious food. The management might want to consider replacing the unsmiling and rude young woman they have as a hostess.

Definitely a more authentic Japanese experience. If you want to truly immerse yourself in the culture, try the river crabs. The price point was pretty high, but you are receiving quality ingredients and beautiful presentation...and even some possible celebrity sightings: we sat near Joe Flacco during our most recent visit. The sake list is enormous and intimidating; ask for help before you just randomly order something you don't end up enjoying.

Perfect place for date night. We ordered a few things off of the menu, and then asked our waitress for a recommendation of her favorite sushi roll for the last one we ordered. Also asked for her rec on which sake to taste, and all that she chose for us was fantastic. Fabulous food, awesome service, and spectacular view of the Inner Harbor. 10/10 would recommend and would eat again. We will be back for more!

I can’t even begin to explain how pleased I was with Azumi staff and their management (Atlas Group) after my reservation today. I follow their Instagram account and was very interested in trying a special dish shown at their IG account yesterday, the Lobster Omasake ! To my surprise it was not on the menu today and Hannah, chef Andy and the kitchen staff make sure that I would not leave the restaurant disappointed and made it HAPPEN!

Thank you so much ALL !!!

Note: GREAT LOCATION

The welcome was friendly, and courteous; appetizers were excellent including Pork Gyoza, Rock Shrimp Tempura and Yellowtail Jalapeno. The special dish of lobster-three ways was creative and artistically presented; it was also delicious, especially the broth. The nigiri sushi was fresh with clean, delicate flavors, and the rice was well-proportioned and at the proper (room) temperature. Clearly, Azumi is a well-managed enterprise. In a word: Supreme!

This restaurant used to be one of my favorites but recently it has gone down hill. In the last six months, many of the menu items have changed and the prices have been increased. The new menu items are not simply not as good as the old ones and the prices have become outrageous ($20+ for a roll).

We have been coming to Azumi and it's predecessor Pabu since Pabu first opened. The price has gone up considerably and the quality has gone down. The knowledge, polish, and professionalism of the wait staff has also declined. We know our sushi and Japanese food and will pay for the best quality - this used to be our Baltimore go to place but the price is higher than the quality now.

I have been to Azumi since it has opened. It was one of my favorite places to visit. Unfortunately, the food was below average making the cost outrageous! There must have been changes to the cooks there.

An upscale Japanese restaurant on the harbor. Very nice ambiance but for the price, it was average overall. The food tasted great and had a wide selection of alcohol but very expensive. May suggest for a special occasion or the high class sushi lover but not the everyday diner.
