Didn’t have our wine selection chilled (offered to chill it while we waited! Ugh) and ran out of the Tuna appetizer right before we ordered. Server was mediocre and it was so loud. Food was great. Very much a scene.

I dined at Umi last night for the first time and what a let down. I rarely write reviews but the experience was so subpar, it warranted one. Let me start with the service, it was excellent. We had to wait probably 15min past reservation time for a table for 2 but that was fine. Service at the bar was quick and friendly and the cocktails quite good. The front of the house staff and wait staff were all very attentive and did a great job but that is where the good ends. The space is so dark and so loud it borders on ridiculous. Having a conversation at anything less than a yell is impossible. The music and the crowd noise make this a terrible spot for either a date or a business conversation. It would be horrible if you tried to come here for a romantic dinner or birthday celebration. Because it is so dark, you see a number of people using their cell phone flashlights to light the menu which was super annoying, especially when the light is flashing in your face. The crowd itself was varied from a couple clearly trying to have a nice dinner, such as I was, to business people to small groups just looking to be seen.

The food was absolutely just OK. I've been to countless Sushi/Omakase places across the country and it was unmemorable and frankly disappointing. The tuna tartare was a bit bland with way too much corn, the rolls weren't rolled tight and the taste/presentation no better than a local sushi place at 1/3 the cost. The sashimi was good but not great including the Toro, which rather than melt in your mouth, was a bit tough and not of the highest quality in my opinion. We had intended to order hot plates and desert but we were so turned off by the noise, the annoying douchey group next to us, the flashlights in the eyes and inability to enjoy a high-end meal with an actual conversation, that we rushed our meal and left. Umi is a place to go to be seen but not a place to enjoy a meal with good company and great food.

This is an AMAZING place!!! I will definitely be back and spreading the word to everyone! The waiter Paul made it a very special night for our daughters birthday 21st!! The service in incredible! Food is incredible!! You must eat the Chocolate Kyu dessert! Get their early or ask for it when you place reservations! They only make 12 a night. Be sure to be prepared for pricing, but I thought it was worth EVERY PENNY!!!

We took our newly engaged daughter and future son in law out to celebrate❣️Umi continues to deliver. The starters of Tuna carpaccio and crispy tuna and shrimp tempura were so fresh, I think they brought them directly from the water. Each was prepared uniquely and beautifully presented. Each was served individually, when we had just completed the previous one. Service is second to none!!!! Michelle, our server is like family. We request her on every visit as she is knowledgeable, personable, adorable and so trustworthy. She knows what we like:). The entrees of lobster rolls, spicy tuna and I’m not sure what the third one was, were absolutely delicious, my Chilean Seabass was outstanding! All again were fresh, beautifully prepared and presented and not a crumb left. Lastly, but certainly not least, was the dessert. We ALWAYS have the chocolate lava cake with the vanilla ice cream as an exception to the green tea ice cream ( just personal choice) it’s out of this world, and Michelle suggested the chocolate ball with the mallet. Now that was a great surprise! Upon breaking open the rich dark chocolate ball inside is sweet marscapone and berries and peach with a Japanese liqueur. I think that now may be my fave! All in all, Umi is one of my favorite spots. Although it’s $$ it’s worth saving up to give it a try. It’s fabulous!!!

The place is nice but the tables are really small that you are very close with the next one. The place is dark and the fonts in the menu small that you can’t see the dishes so, be prepare to use a flashlight.
Besides that, food is delicious.

Best sushi in Atlanta and Michelle is the best server I’ve ever had! She is the reason we go as often as we do. We have never had anything to eat we haven’t loved. The sushi melts in your mouth.

No había escuchado acerca de Umi antes. Fue una sorpresa llegar y ver la cantidad de gente en el bar y en el pequeño salón principal.

Mi esposa y yo llegamos media hora antes y fuimos recibidos muy amablemente por la hostess.

Tuvimos que esperar en el bar que estaba repleto pero el barman fue de lo mas amable.

Unos minutos antes de las 10 nos avisaron que la mesa estaba lista.

Toda la experiencia fue estupenda, la comida excelente, el ambiente increíble.

El lugar es muy oscuro y ruidoso pero creo que ese es el ambiente que lo hace atractivo.

En general fue una experiencia increíble, regresaremos siempre que estemos en Atlanta.

Outstanding service and sushi! Always fresh and delicious. Umi never disappoints.
My only complaint would be; the space is too small, you are sitting so close to other people it becomes hard to have a conversation. Other than that, Umi is one of our favorite restaurants!

Hands down this is my favorite sushi restaurant. The sashimi is fantastic, the live scallops were great, and of course the Kobe Beef roll is melt in your mouth goodness. Add that to their signature Moscow mule and this is definitely a place to go when you have the opportunity.
