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.

My husband and I went on a date here and got edamame, a bento box, and a drink or two. It was delicious- but I was most impressed with our attentive and friendly server. It seems rare that we are happy with service but this chick was so great! I wish I could remember her name. The Bento Box option... More

We waited for over an hour to be seated, and once seated we were told they were short staff and only had one chief. Which was a lie. Once a chief came to our table he did not make conversation nor did anyone come over and apologize. We had a coupon and the owner would not honor and was very... More

We visited Umi while in town on business. The atmosphere was cool and laid back. Our waitress Erin was awesome. Erin went out of her way to take care of us. Our chef was great and prepared delicious food for us. We had a great time. I strongly recommend checking out Umi.

We ate here with some family members and had the Hibachi style dinner experience. It was delicious and the portions were generous. The service was great and the prices were a bit steep, but honestly, not much different than what I remember paying for a Japanese steakhouse Hibachi meal many years ago (I'm talking 10 years ago). Everyone in our... More
