Steadily moving from really good to great

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.

It was ok. I wasn't impressed by the food, and the staff seemed to hover over us... not really taking care of anything (dishes, drinks, etc) just standing there watching us. It was a little uncomfortable...

For starters the best spicy crab salad in town followed by tuna spoons that melt in your mouth. If you try the specials you get a flavor of the mood the Chief has today but, be even more adventurous and ask Jonathan or Sony to suprise you and you won't be disapointed. You will love sushi if you have it... More

My wife and I were up fredericksburg for a extended weekend trip, and being how we both love sushi we decided to give Umi a try. The staff was very polite and friendly and very helpful with the menu as some names of sushi were unfamiliar to us cause we have found each Sushi restaurant has their own names and... More

We were in Fredericksburg for a few days, and felt like sushi one night. A friend recommended Umi, and we dropped in expecting a long wait for food. Turned out that not only did it arrive really fast, it was really good. On top of that, they serve brown rice upon request in the sushi. Prices were very reasonable as... More

i grew up in Japan, so am very aware of culture and diet... this is americanized Japanese food, not very true to home... few natural flavors, spicing can be overwhelming. definitely not for my palate. quite pricey as well.
