This is by far, the best and freshest sushi I've had in my life! Everything tasted like they were caught right off of Puget Sound and served directly onto our plates. We tried a few of their specialty rolls, which were great. The star was the fresh selection of sashimi. Uni was the best I've ever had-creamy and soft with... More

Great sushi, great sashimi, and great sake. Downing the delectable sushi with wasabi and washing it down with sake. They have sake flights, and the one with coconut was quite nice. Timely service. Slightly on the expensive side though. I did not go there during happy hours.

I went there for happy hour and I thought it was average. Good food, good drinks, for a decent price, but nothing really stood out and the atmosphere was average.

Great happy hour! The variety is not quite the same as the full menu, but it's great value for money with solid sushi.

Love this place. Quality of fish and food is great. They have one of the best happy hours in Seattle and the quality doesn't suffer even at the lessor price for hh. 4-6pm main restaurant 6-8pm bar and front dining tables is the happy hour. Lots of 4.5 - 5 $ dishes and drinks. Good for date night or dinner... More

We returned here after a great experience this past summer. I have found no one else in many other states that make a vegetarian sushi as good as their Green Decadence. See you again before we leave.

Service was quite hectic and food was average. For the price, I would definitely recommend other nearby options.

This is awesome sushi! The rolls with Ahi and cilantro and incredible! It was a long treck from both the hotels we stayed in, but well worth the trip. First time we took a taxi and second time we used public transportation. If you are looking for a quiet place then you need to look elsewhere. Both times we were... More

My husband and I visited Umi Sake House for our own, untraditional Thanksgiving celebration and we were not disappointed. The ambience is unique, welcoming, and fun with lively colors, interesting lighting fixtures and creative barriers that divide the restaurant nicely. Our server was fantastic from the moment he first said hello. He was also extremely prompt and gave great suggestions... More

Great food, we kept eating until we were ready to burst. They were very busy but we had booked ahead (Via the site) so no hassle. Once we ordered the food came out really quickly Cocktail menu was great and the cheesecake (made at a local bakery I think) was yummy
