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

Ordered a delicious crab salad and yummy vegetable tempura and miso soup.Everything was perfect and tasty. Portions were very generous and I shared my tempura with another person.The waitress was a scream she was so helpful and funny!

I went there with friends because I remembered this restaurant being great, not the case any more. I ordered a few sushi rolls and ridiculously enough they all lacked fish. It seemed as though they were stuffed with filler ingredients and sauce. The only high point was that the waitress we had was attentive.

My wife and i tried this place on a recommendation from some of her colleagues from work. We keep going back because the sushi is fresh and the service is good. Plus they are quick. This is a good place to take a date.

The place was packed on a Saturday night. Seating was tight, but had dinner at the sushi bar. Talked with sushi chef and was very nice, even with a little extra to try some new sushi, on the house. But it's not just sushi, other items on menu like chicken teriyaki was very good with two whole chicken breast.

We recently moved in the area and my mother in law and I went to lunch here and I got the eel and avacado roll as well as the salmon skin and scallion roll! Both were very fresh and delicious! She doesn't care for sushi and got a bento combination of chicken teriyaki with a number of other things which... More

Went there this week with a friend, and it must have been a bad day for the sushi chef. Our sushi was small and some of the pieces had a strange color. Nothing like I am accustomed to seeing. But they didn't smell bad so I ate them. Unfortunately that night my stomach disagreed with my choice. A whole day... More
