I have been to umi several times and have never been disappointed. The hibachi is always good but I do not like the mushroom soup they serve! The sushi is also very good too!

I have dined at many Japanese restaurants in this area, but Umi is by far the best. The sushi is out of this world! Cocktails are great. Service is top notch! Kids really enjoy the Hibachi presentation. Portions are very generous. Super awesome place for romantic dinner or lunch with friends.

I have been several times with family and it is never a disappointment. The sushi is fresh and the steak and fried rice is amazing. We always have the best service!

Jessie kept checking in making sure I was ok every so often, perfect. the Sushi (raw) was amazing. The Chef made a plate for me, I only told him what I liked.

You can't go wrong with the hibachi steak, but the sushi at Umi's is what you want. My favorite is the crawfish roll and the shaggy dog. Sushi for a late lunch with the office is always a great option.

A sushi expert may lambast Umi's, but I won't. Not being a huge fan of raw anything, I'll say that this place made sushi accessible to me and other members of my family. The atmosphere is always enjoyable, the service prompt, and the food tasty. I will say that in recent months, the food quality has gone down a bit.... More

My husband and I go to Umi's pretty regularly and over 5 years we have had maybe 2 bad experiences, both of which occurred when it was packed (also I'm pretty sure that waitress is gone). The hibachi and the shrimp are both delicious and the waiters and waitresses are all very friendly.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Very entertaining as the hibachi chefs put on a great show of food preparation and presentation.

The food here was good and the service was excellent. Food was brought out in a timely manner and our drinks were always full. I would recommend this restaurant.
