Unfortunately, a trendy/popular high end restaurant heading downhill. The service provided by Michele and the support team around her was outstanding as always. The food was substandard especially when viewed from past visits and the ever increasing prices. We have found better sushi and a better experience elsewhere and will say farewell to Umi.

The wait time for our table even though we made reservations was ridiculous. We had to wait over 30 mins for our table. There were people there that had to wait even longer than us because they were a party of 4. The sushi was authentic and the service was fast.

Umi is my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. I love the amazing food. The service is next level, and the scene is really fun. Make sure to make reservations well in advance. The later in the evening the better

One of the premiere sushi spots in the ATL. This is an equal marriage of social scene and sushi scene, and while I appreciate both but I'm in it for the sushi first and foremost. Service is always excellent.

Here's my breakdown of our most recent meal. Superb: yellowtail with jalapeño appetizers, tuna carpaccio, o'toro nigiri, grilled Chilean sea bass, grilled shishitou pepper, scallop sashimi and a specialty "not on the menu" cut roll with crab and cucumber. Good: typhoon roll, edamame. Take it or leave it: the avocado salad. Not working for me at all: spicy tuna on crispy rice (served cold? IDGI)

Overall - I love this restaurant and will be back soon.

For those who look for high end, sophisticated, well thought elegant Japanese food, then Umi is the place to visit. The staff are sophisticated and friendly. Our server Dickson is exceptional. Coming here for us is not just to dine, but also to enjoy a wonderful experience

We went to Umi to celebrate a birthday... the drink suggestions were completely off base and there was absolutely nothing done to make the night special. I called ahead of time to request a birthday celebration and the server absolutely ignored the purpose of the evening. They even forgot to bring our the dessert that was to accompany the omakase. For the price, this experience left so much to be desired. For future reference go to O-Ku instead!

Always a pleasant dining experience here. Lots of choices as far as sushi and sashimi. The quality is above average: we tried avocado salad, toro the only thing is the sauce/seasoning for some of them is on the heavy side which overpowered the food itself. But we still enjoyed the food and atmosphere here.

We sat at the bar, and I don’t think we’ve had a better date night in Atlanta yet! The sushi is AMAZING!! Don’t waste your stomach space on rolls (although they are delicious), go straight for the nigiri. If you sit at the bar, you can watch the chefs create all the beautiful dishes. Absolutely remarkable and so so fresh.

You'll find the best (and most expensive) experience at the Sushi Counter doing the "Ito-kase" course. You'll be served some of the finest sushi of the day and served until you say stop. Itou-san takes pride in his craft and it shows. Umi is one of the best places in Atlanta for sushi. It's the closest you'll get to Japan-grade service and flavor.

Everything was great once you walk in! For first time visitors make sure you get exact instructions on how to navigate your way there. It's in a weird location and at night can be difficult to locate (the current side walk construction doesn't help).
However, once you get in Everything is exceptional from hostess greeting to dessert!

This place is absolutely fantastic. Dined here before for business and had to take my husband for valentines. We got there an hour earlier than our reservation so they escorted us to their private bar few doors down. From the dry cold sake, toro, Kobe beef, yellow tail, lobster, and other recommendations to last bite of our meal, it was awesome. Our waitress, Autumn was superb. We told her what we liked and she took care of everything. Fantastic experience and can’t wait to go back. The bar was perfect start to our special night, waitress recommended an awesome bottle of sake (southern beauty) and paired it with light appetizer (yellow tail with jalapeños) that started our fantastic journey to foodie’s dream. Really appreciated management accommodating us and allowing us to try their private bar. I think this is the best sushi restaurant in Atlanta. Definitely my favorite

It was a little frustrating that our reservation was at 9pm and we were not seated until close to 10pm, but I suppose certain circumstances in the restaurant world prevent every seating from being optimally timed.

Also, not sure how I feel about Freddy Freeman sitting with those Philies players. I mean, come on, they're divisional rivals.
