Really enjoyed it!

I had heard good things about Umi for a couple of years & finally decided to try it. They have a great menu--lots of choices. I really enjoyed the Niko chicken. Friends had sushi and said it was very good as well. I'll be going back!

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.

After a day trip shopping with a friend, we decided to try Umi. Beautiful decor, hibachi table nice and big with room to set around not cramped. Sushi bar, regular dining area also. They even had two small rooms with screens and low tables with pillows for actually eating while sitting on floor. I had only seen that in the... More

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.
