4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Was with a group of coworkers. Quick service, really good food. Good mix of sushi and sashimi, and a good japanese beer list.

“Very good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

The restaurant is very well located, the environment is great, service is really good and the food is very good.
I have eaten sushi rolls all over the world and the sushi at Umami is really really good.
The speciality rolls of the house are great, you should try it and :) please try the small Umami burgers :)

“Excellent combination of cuisines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We followed the recommendations of our waitress which were absolutely spot-on: the brut rosé sparkling wine to start, the california and new york rolls, the potstickers (gyoza), and the sliders. Do not skip dessert, you'll want to have the cookie dough roll.

Extremely friendly and lively atmosphere, but also therefore a bit loud and difficult to manage much conversation.

“Friendly, delicious sushi in a lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Here's the big secret, eat here before 6:30 pm and enjoy $5 special sushi rolls, in addition to their regular menu. But the regular menu is great--delicious, imaginative rolls, plus the standards. Their sliders are amazing with a special bun made in-house. Our family loves this place.
