I am not sure why some of the reviews here are talking about a restaurant in Stafford, but this is definitely in the middle of Fredericksburg. We came on a recommendation from a local, and boy are we glad we did! The Japanese food was excellent! I had a Bento box because I love the variety offered. My dining companions... More

The Umi Japanese restaurant in Stafford, off of Garrisonville Rd, is an excellent example of Japanese style dining. This is a new restaurant, not the one in Fredericksburg, it is in the same building that Marlin & Rays Seafood restaurant was previously located. The food here is excellent and the wait staff very gracious. There are real Japanese people working... More

I don't like sushi but I love Umi! I really like the veggie tempura bento box. So fresh, so tasty. The atmosphere and service are so relaxing. The folks I dined with loved their sushi. It looked amazing. I also appreciated the server's willingness to teach us about Japanese food. What a nice addition to the Stafford restaurant scene.

Do not bother. Rice was undercooked, teriyaki chicken was juat like tyson teriyaki in the frozen aisle with extra bottled teriyaki. Four of us aye it and NO one liked it. The california rolls were okay at best. The people who worked there were pleasant but the man who handed us our food had what looked like burn markes and... More

Excellent sushi in a trendy atmosphere - don't judge from the exterior - the interior is chic and contemporary. Service is great.

After a tough party weekend away in Montreal, our drive back to Toronto saw the group of us wanting some delicious sushi. We happen to stumble apon Umi while avoiding some traffic from the 401. As you have probably experienced yourself, chosing an all you can eat sushi place is sometimes daring. The décor and interior of Umi was new... More

Having lived in Japan for 6 years yet having no decent Japanese restaurant in Stafford was sad. However, I am pleased that we finally have a decent Japanese restaurant!!! The atmosphere is good and the food is also very good. Welcome to Stafford, Umi!

We lived in Japan for three years and this is on par with the best you will get there. The salmon lemon roll was delightful. I would also highly recommend the spider roll which is crab. The shrimp fried rice had big pieces of shrimp and fresh cut veggies in it. I wanted to lick the plate. We will be... More

Came to Umi under advice from my husband's vanpool friends. Have to agree, the food is very good. The service was exceptional and the prices were reasonable. Our server was very helpful reviewing the selections with us. She recommended the Godzilla and Superman rolls. They were the hit of our evening. Came again to Umi with my mom, sister and... More

Incredible to find a sushi restaurant of this caliber in Fredericksburg (and I can say that after having seen the other local Japanese restaurants come and go). Umi will not sell fish unless it is very fresh. For example, you will likely find uni there only on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights--they bring it in fresh for the weekend and... More
