Nice ambience, great location on the Inner Harbor. Food was excellent and first rate service. Grilled octopus was interesting. Broccolini was perfect. Grilled scallops done to perfection and sauces, seasonings amazing.

Service was wonderful. We specifically booked this restaurant so we could eat outside by the water. We were unable to, however, because they would not put the umbrellas up because they would “topple over.” What?! Your outside umbrellas can’t hold up to a breeze?! You’re in the water, for goodness sake.

The food was fine, but very average for a very high price - was disappointed.

This was my second time at Azumi. The food is very creative and the staff is wonderful, polite, and they really want you to enjoy your time at the restaurant. If you like sushi this is absolutely the best place for it and you will be treated well.

We sat outside and there was just one other table outside. Server barely came out. Got there around 12:07 pm and got food around 1:15 pm. I had a salad and sushi and salad never came out ahead so had 15 min to eat both before going back into a conference. I can’t imagine it could take an hour to make a small salad.

Great location with an awesome view. The service from our waitress was excellent.

The Tuna tasting sampler was great. We added the tuna cheek to ours and it was also outstanding.

The tuna tartare appetizer and 3 rolls we ordered for the rest of our meal were unimpressive and my wife and I felt we’ve had far better at other restaurants. Overall, except for our tuna sampler, the food itself felt highly priced and overrated.

I recently went to Azumi with a group of friends not for a particular occasion, but to catch up. We sat outside and the view of the harbor was excellent. The atmosphere was nice and calm, not uncomfortable even though it’s more of an upscale restaurant. It wasn’t too hard to get a reservation either but I’ve noticed that it’s typically busier on weekends and reservations should be made a 2-3 weeks in advance. The food was good and fresh which i would expect considering the prices. There was also a large selection on the menu which is a plus because there’s always room to switch it up and try something new. Overall i give Azumi a 4 out of 5.

Attentive service and not rushed. Large food and drink menu. Enjoyed that flights were available. Our robika scallops were overcooked in places and rubbery but flavorful and tasty. Not sure wayu fried rice needed a ring of sriracha around it but tasty. Nigiri dinner good.

From indoors:

The food and service was very good, and on point. Almost no complaints except for the Rotoba. The chicken is probably too close to the fire, so it charred a bit. The Australian Wangu sauce was rather salty.

The noise from the speaker is rather loud, so it can make it hard to hold a conversation with a person across from you if you are near it.

The later the night goes on. The darker the restaurant gets, and it wouldn't be so bad if they slowly raised the light levels. However the staff have to use flashlights to help customers read the menu, and show what is delivered.

Overall the place is excellent even with those cons.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. They were busier than usual, even though we had an early reservation. The presentation of the food was not as nice as it usually is. Two of our sushi and sashimi orders came out on plain-as-can-be round white plates. The sushi didn't even have ginger or wasabi. This was a very unusual misstep for this establishment. The food - especially the Wagyu Rice, tuna tartare, and shisito peppers - and drinks were delicious as usual though.

Upon arriving was greeted by the valets, whom took great care of my car. Checked in with the hostess who could not find the online reservation, but was seated immediately. Table was a little wobbly; however that is probably from it being constantly moved. Service was great and the waiter was very knowledgeable of all the sakes that were offered. Food was amazing and filling. Am a sushi snob. Even the manager came out to the table to make sure everything was satisfactory. This place is highly recommended!!

We tried Azumi for the first time so to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary. It was a great place for our date. Fresh, young and vibrant restaurant full with exceptional food choices. Fresh ingredients, well cooked and presented and with a cool selection of Asian Inspired drinks. We will definitely go back again! Very friendly stuff and nice atmosphere overall. Better visit with friends or as a date.

We unfortunately had an issue with the hostess. We made our reservation a week in advance. I also called in specifically asking for a booth with a view which was granted. Our concierge from the Four Season also called to confirm our reservation and booth that morning. We arrived 5 minutes early and was behind a group the same size as ours. We watched the hostess give them our table, even admitting that she did so because they were supposed to sit outside but the weather looked questionable. We then had to wait 25 minutes for another booth.

Azumi STILL has the best sushi in Baltimore, albeit very expensive. In fact, I'd rather not go anywhere else in greater Baltimore. That said, however, Azumi has lost its character. We did not hear the energetic, "Irashai mase!!" upon coming to the sushi bar; we were the only patrons at the sushi bar despite the restaurant being nearly full (now that's very odd); none of the 3-4 sushi chefs even bothered to make eye contact, much less acknowledge our presence.

In "real" sushi bars (i.e., those that retain the core values of a truly Japanese sushi bar), the enjoyment of sitting there is to interact with the sushi chef. I should know. I'm half Japanese and grew up in Japan. Anyway, that's gone at Azumi. Nevertheless, the food was exceptionally good. Next time, however, I think I'd rather go to DC, Philadelphia, NYC, San Diego, or Seattle for that "real" sushi experience.

Very little food for the high price. I left satisfied but not full after having the king crab salad. My husband had sushi, no complaints regarding quality just limited portions. We began sneezing as soon as we sat down at the table. I questioned the large orchid next to the table, the waitress said she would have to speak with her manager and another leader is she could move it??? Interestingly, when she came to get our plates she asked if we thought we had enough food. I then felt it must be intentional to get customers to buy more.

This is an authentic Japanese restaurant with knowledgeable staff and excellent fish and sushi.
It is expensive, but for a true foodie, just what the doctor ordered.
