Everytime we have gone here, various times of the day or night, we have ALWAYS had great food & service. We lived in Okinawa, Japan for 6yrs before moving here & have been trying several different places to enjoy sushi like we used to & this place hit the spot. We have pretty much tried just... read more

I like the real deal when it comes to Asian cuisine. It's often tough to find a restaurant that doesn't water-down the menu for American pallets. For me, Umi tries to be pretty close to the real thing. The sushi is really good and I've been tempted by the bento options but usually settle on the Ramen instead. It comes... More

Umi's is primarily a sushi restaurant and offers some other Asian inspired dishes, so we ordered sushi. We ordered a number of sushi dishes and were AMAZED. They had three sushi chef's making wonderful dish after wonderful dish. We couldn't stop eating, it was so good. This one is a can't miss if you like sushi.

We stop in at least every other week for tuna spoon and a roll. I highly recommend the Morgan and Dynamite roll.

We've made Umi a mandatory stop on our visits to Fredericksburg. Outstanding sushi, artfully prepared, and served at just the right temperature. Staff is courteous, prompt and attentive, but not overly so.

We visited here when passing through the area. Sushi is quite cheap ($8 spider roll) so we were skeptical. It turned out to be very fresh and their tempura was perfect. Very happy with the choice.

We returned once again for dinner and as before, another home run. It's a little place and we find the people so friendly. The food of course I will brag about. We have never been disappointed. The fish is of great quality and really looks fresh. The presentation they do are so professional. Of course its Sushi but they have... More

An excellent menu and options for all appetites. Particularly like the 2 or 3 choice lunch menu options. Our favorite is the bento lunch of chicken teryaki with pork shumai, california roll and salad. I don't know what is in their house orange dressing but it's fabulous.
