We were a little late to our reservation, and once we were ready to be seated we were advised by the host that we had to be done in 1 hour and 10 min. We were barely seated when the server wanted our order. Once we were told they had no to go boxes for extra food and we could take it in a napkin
Not a good experience for an expense Atlanta restaurant that requires a credit card for a reservation
Excellent food and service!
Phenomenal as usual!! We tried the Omakase for the first time and it was exquisite, we received the best cuts, great first time experience with the Omakase I look forward to more adventuring on this well planned menu.
Good dining for quality sushi in Atlanta a little dark but other than that it’s perfect great service and all !!!!
Umi is always amazing! I have been there Many times and the service is always excellent, the fish spectacular, and the desserts amazing!
If you're looking for a nice place with great ambiance and amazing sushi, Umi is the spot. #ruinsallothersushi
This was my 2nd time dining at Umi, and this was nothing less than an exceptional experience. We had a drink at the bar, and our table reservation was ready on time (maybe 5-10 minutes late), but no real problem with that! It's definitely a special night spot, we were celebrating a promotion - quite noisy, but you adjust to that.
Loved the food and the service was awesome
It was my girlfriend's birthday weekend and she loves sushi and UMI rated very high in Atlanta for sushi lovers, so...sushi surprise for her (along with two friends)!
Overall the food and service was amazing. From the two tuna and one snapper appetizers, to the sushi rolls and lobster dish that was cooked at the table, the food was so very good. All dishes drew rave reviews from the three seafood lovers at my table. But...yes, I know it's a sushi place, but I don't eat seafood, so a few more land-based options would have been welcome (so, like in my situation it's an easier choice to eat there when one person in a couple or group does not like seafood). There were three choices: Wagyu beef tenderloin ($145), Wagyu strip loin ($30/ounce) or chicken teriyaki (a reasonable $21). So it was a steak that costs a fortune or something one could get at any corner Japanese joint. Not for nothing, though, the tenderloin was delicious. We all sampled the chocolate bento box and parfait for dessert. Both were fabulous. The chocolate was divine and the bourbon burnt sugar ice cream in the parfait...just wow!
UMI is not very big. The waiting area is nonexistent and the bar area is tiny and surrounded by tables so there is no place to be while waiting for your table (they ran just a little late with the 9:00 pm Saturday night reservation) without being in other diners' and servers' ways.
It was dark (more than one person was illuminating the menu with their phones) and loud, but fun and tasty, so I would take my sushi-loving girlfriend again (but maybe save $124 and get the chicken next time if nothing else land-based was added to the menu).
Umi is an incredible restaurant and serves some of the best sushi I've ever had. It isn't cheap, but you get an experience you pay for.
The meal was absolutely fantastic! I am not a big sushi person but I came her off a recommendation and for my mom’s Birthday because she loves sushi. This place can make a non-sushi person into a sushi person. The flavor was amazing. The service was also top level. Can’t wait to go back!
The best omakase we’ve had in a while! Paul, our server was amazing. Knowledgeable, attentive and courteous! We enjoyed every morsel. Both my husband and I had the miyabi omakase but instead of just serving us identical appetizers, they gave us two variations which allowed us to taste a greater variety. They do d the same for the hot entree and actually plated half and half on each plate! Now that is service! We will definitely be back!!!
Food and service outstanding. WAY TOO LOUD for any type of conversation. UMI needs help with the acoustics. Our server couldn't hear us or we couldn't hear her even though we were within 6- 12 inches of her.
Had excellent dining experience.
Just awesome the most wonderful experience
Just do it!!
While the food and the servers are great at Umi, I was extremely disappointed to find my reservation had been given up after there was a crash on the highway and I was at a standstill, making me almost 20 minutes late for my reservation. The grace period is 15 minutes, and my birthday was ruined because I no longer had anywhere to eat.
Wonderful place to celebrate special occasions! Impeccable service.
Excellent!!! Freshest fish in Atlanta for sure! Will be back again. Need to book well in advance though as it is popular!
Legendary! The Lobster dish and tuna carpaccio was out of this world!!!!
Waitress was snobby and almost looking down on us. She barely checked and cleaned our table ( tables are very small and we ordered quite a bit) . Waiters were running left and right
Umi is too noisy. Overrated !!!!
