Great food served quickly!

We enjoy going to Umi on special occasions. We took our employees for our holiday party and reserved one of the private rooms. The food is great & service is quick.

The owners took what was a Quincy's Steak (Buffet) restaurant and totally renovated it making it a very attractive and large Japaneese Restaurant with both set down and Hibachi style dining.

Good sushi and friendly staff. Price is good and food is served at the correct temperature. Needs a little bit of update on the table tops... it is an easy fix.

This is a typical hibachi restaurant. The food is very good and it's cooked right in front of you. They do have a full size bar. They also have a sushi bar.

Guido at lunch if you can same or similar servings half the money. But even for dinner even it goes from cheap to just reasonable it is good. The hibachi fillet mignon with f. rice assessment vegetables it's excellent.

I had lunch here with friends and the service was friendly and prompt. The food was tasty and presented well. This is not the first time that I have eaten here and it certainly will not be the last time.
