“best sushi in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Yume has the freshest, best sushi in town. They also have a great saki collection and some really good beers. (Asahi SuperDry and Morimoto soba!) The chefs will create anything you like. I cannot eat seaweed, so the chef makes my rolls with soy and rice paper. Delish! The lobster roll is a must-have!

The dinner dishes are also excellent. Grilled Salmon with a basil/ginger sauce is a favorite. The tempura is light and no greasy. We have never eaten anything here we didn't like and we eat here once a week! The chef is also adding some thai dishes to the menu....

“Fantastic sushi, but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Several people recommended Yume Sushi, so we went. If it had not been so highly recommended, we probably would have left without eating. This restaurant needs a major clean-up and new paint. Everything is grimy, including ventilation and bathrooms. Not really the right ambience for eating raw fish. Overall we were glad we stayed - the sushi was great, really fresh, and presented beautifully. Management needs to pay attention to the rest, and then it will be 5+ stars.

“Anniversary dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend surprised me with sushi for our one year anniversary! We have been to many good sushi places in the area but Yume is by far the best we have had. You must try there signature lobster roll, mojo and snow white rolls :) you will never eat sushi anywhere else again!

“Great Sushi in Sarasota”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Very good sushi and sashimi. I use the sniff test when choosing a sushi place, if it smells like fish run away, happily Yume passed the test. Their fish was fresh and melted in your mouth. They have wonderful rolls and sashimi plates for every palate. The only down side is the restaurant is small and if it's crowded you may have to wait awhile.

“Excellent sushi with great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Very good grade sushi.........fresh and tasty.

We had one of the smaller "boats", which came loaded with the chef's choice of sashimi, along with a california roll. The roll was dull, but the rest of the boat was delicious and fresh.

We sat at the sushi bar to watch the action. One chef was the true pro. The other spent a bit too much time toasting saki with a very chummy patron.

Very nice, clean atmosphere. Full Japanese menu, including bento boxes if that is your desire. But, we came for sushi, and were not disappointed. We don't drink, but saw an extensive selection of Saki.

Lots of innovative rolls. We'll be back for more sushi.
