Ate here 3 times: sushi bar twice, teppanyaki once. Sushi bar was great. High quality sushi and sashimi. Dessert of cheesecake and fruit were delicious. The teppanyaki was amazingly made by Jose. Beef and shrimp with fried rice was excellent. The presentation and service every visit was exceptional from anayelli greeting us, chutuma waiting on us, and chefs Jose, victor and gamalirl, mixologist Patricio with the great welcome drinks too. Kudos for manager Roni for running it perfectly.

We ate at the Hibachi one nite and at the sushi section another night while staying at the Hotel NYX. Hibachi showmanship was very good and food was good (NY steak a little tough). The Sushi section was excellent. The sushi rolls were very good quality and the fried rice and Teriyaki Chicken also very good. The specialty cocktails were excellent and reasonably priced (the Umami was our favorite).

This was a very fun but also classy meal. The food was prepared in front of us with a very enthusiastic and funny chef (José). Our waitress Chutima was very kinda and helped us with any problems. Toni, Anayelli and Patricio were also very kind and hospitable. A great experience overall!

My husband and I are so happy we chose to eat at Umami! We loved the food and service. Jose was the chef and he was both funny and entertaining. Yvonne was attentive to our needs. We’ve been in Mexico for two weeks and Umami was, hands-down, our favorite meal!
