Went here with friends and it was great. A neat experience to watch the cook prepare your food. Food was great and very filling. Will definitely go back for lunch. The dinner is a little pricy.

I've eaten here a few times being that I'm from Florence and as a local I would suggest eating at Hibachi instead. Umi is good but expensive. You also have to order off of the dinner menu at night whereas at Hibachi you can order the smaller, cheaper, portions at dinner.

I'm so glad I did. I went back in May for my first visit. I had never been to any type of hibachi grill before. Only what I'd seen on TV. We sat down and I enjoyed the way everything is laid out. It's really nice inside. Our Chef was good, and the food was really good. I got the... More

I don't want to judge to harshly because our waitress seemed new, but She was smacking on gum the entire time we were there. She never cleared any dishes and was slow with ever part of service. The hibachi chef was fun and attentive, but I just can't get over the gum.

We have eaten at this restaurant over a dozen times since it opened and have never been disappointed! The food is always excellent! And my step-daughter LOVES the show put on right in front of us. Definitely recommend to others! And definitely will go back every chance we get. 5 stars all the way IMO.

A really good, maybe even great place in Florence, for Sashimi (raw fish for those of you who think Sushi is raw........ LOL NOT>....... Anyway, Very fresh raw selection, prepared with excellence and served by a very knowledgeable. Nice bar makes super dirty Martini's.... what more can I say???? Try it.
